Art Prints

… because your space is important.

Art isn’t art until it’s on the wall,
before this, it’s just a digital picture.

What are Open and Limited Editions?

An Open Edition print is produced in any quantity. These editions are usually not personally signed by the artist, however, can cost much less than Limited works. A downside is they are less likely to increase in value.

A Limited Edition is a print of a limited quantity. When the edition sells out, the art is no longer available. These prints are certified by the artist, signed and numbered.

Split Editions

As in life, different things for different people … and so choice is important.

And where limited edition prints can get costly for the average art buyer, Christian has split his editions into 3 offerings based on size. This allows budget-conscious art buyers a chance for ownership. The sizes are Small (11 in), Large (16 in), Extra Large (22 in). Each size also carries its own number of impressions. See below for more detail.

  • Limited Edition (LG)  – The edition run is 30 prints, image size is 16 inches.

The elements of a good art print are
quality paper, print technology and image craftsmanship.
The art itself is in your experience.

Quality paper

400+ years in the paper-making industry. Do I need to say more? Obviously not the only reason I choose Hahnemuhle. These papers have such a beautiful felt-like texture and soft feel. For me, the epitome of artist paper. And with such a broad range, it is hard to choose.

But I have landed on two selections; Photo Rag® 308 gsm & FineArt Baryta Satin 300 gsm. Each of these is paired depending upon the effect I am looking for with the image itself. Baryta gives a deep tonal range, rich blacks and great sharpness for black-and-white photography, whereas the Photo Rag lends a beautiful soft classic glow to imagery best suited to this extra-dimension. Of course, it goes without mentioning, but I will anyway; acid-free and lignin-free for age resistance, specially designed for FineArt applications.

questions, questions…

Are the prints framed?

Christian’s art prints are sold unmounted and unframed, usually rolled in a rigid tube or cardboard sleeve. As with all art prints, we ask that clients limit touching with their bare hands or best use cotton gloves if possible.

Also, it’s recommended that prints are framed professionally using acid-free/age-resistant materials. The simple reason here is, the image will last longer than you. And when properly framed, this ensures your lineage can enjoy it across the ages.

Are the Prints signed by the artist?

All Christian Joore Limited Edition prints are personally signed by the artist, and showing an edition number (e.g. 5/30). In some cases, a client may prefer that the front of the art not show any markings or edition information. In this case, the back of the print will be signed and numbered indicating its authenticity.

Are the prints certified?

Each artwork comes with a certificate of authenticity. Printed on cotton deckled paper, embossed, signed, and numbered. Along with the certificate, the art itself is also stamped with the same unique number.

How are prints authenticated?

Copies of the certificate and all sales information are also securely stored in an offsite database for later confirmation if ever required.
