Art Prints

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 (20 in). Each size also carries its own number of impressions. See below for more detail.

Sizes and Impressions


As noted above, each limited edition has 3 sizes to choose from. The sizes below are imaged areas, the sheet size will always be larger to allow the framer a margin for mounting/matting:

  • Limited Edition (SM) Edition is 100 prints, image size is 10 inches.
  • Limited Edition (LG) Edition is 30 prints, image size is 14 inches.
  • Limited Edition (XL) Edition is 10 prints, image size is 18 inches.

*See the graphic below demonstrating relative sizes.
**Not all pieces are available in all sizes, pricing can vary, shipping is extra.

Quality paper

Image craftsmanship & quality paper: the elements of a fine art print.
However, the poetry of the experience is all yours.

400+ years in the paper-making industry. Do I need to say more? Obviously not the only reason I choose Hahnemuhle for my Limited Edition prints. 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.

Some images command a more classic paper selection—a look and feel reminiscent of the traditional silver halide prints. And so Christian has tested a new paper offering from EPSON – Legacy Platine. Legacy Platine is a 100% cotton fibre paper with a white, smooth satin finish. However, beyond all the marketing talk, his personal experience with this product is a very positive one. The Legacy line is truly built atop a foundation of quality; EPSON having partnered with leading European papermakers and reformulating its inkjet coatings to take advantage of the newest imaging technologies. All in all, truly astounding prints; with deep, rich blacks, expanded colour gamut, and gentle tonal gradations. And, as expected, with permanence and durability to match. 17mil / 314 gsm Acid and Lignen Free.

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.
