FAQ

What is a limited edition print?

A limited edition can be any print or multiple artworks created by the artist or produced exclusively by Art Seen in close collaboration with the artist. All artworks are of the highest quality and finite in number.

Established and emerging contemporary artists are commissioned to produce limited edition prints, multiples or unique variations of new artworks. The prints are produced in limited numbers. All prints include signature and number by the artist as they are accompanied by a signed certificate-of-authenticity. Artist Proofs (APs) will be produced in small amounts. The numbers of prints in the number of the edition are bound to be limited as well as the APs and the prints are not produced a second time. Every now and then the APs are possibly available after the prints are all sold out.

If you have any questions regarding the editions please email info@artseeneditions.com

How do I know that the artwork is authentic?

Art Seen is an excellent trusted source for contemporary art online. We take pride in our proprietary process, working directly with artists and curators, as well as with galleries, and cultural institutions to provide the best collection of original contemporary artworks. All works are signed by the artist and are accompanied by a Signed and Dated Certificate of Authenticity.

How are art seen Editions are made?

The artists handcraft some editions, so each one is one of a kind even though it is part of the edition as a series of unique works. Others are produced on high quality archival paper and use the finest archival inks. We offer inkjet and digital c-prints, as well as traditional print making techniques, such as screen-printing, lithography, etching and more. All details and materials used for each print are included on the artwork detail page. Frequently we collaborate with London Print studio, Klaus Kalde, BDi, Digitalarte, and The Print Space in London, Control Print in Cornwall, 6x6 -Centre for Photography in Cyprus.

Do the edition prices change?

As an edition sells and there is less availability the price will increase. So please note that prices may be subject to change. As it’s tradition in edition publishing, prices will rise as the edition begins to sell out. Our prices do rise as the edition sells, which is why we strongly recommend that (if you are interested in a work) you buy soon after the edition is launched.

Unless otherwise stated, the prices displayed on the website exclude framing and delivery (which we charge at cost). VAT is payable on all sales except European export sales, currently at 5%.All prices stated on the website are subject to change without notice.

Why can’t I buy more than 2 prints of the same edition at once?

Our editions sell quickly and we want to ensure that every collector has a chance to participate. We also want to protect the artist from resellers who may use these opportunities to make this work available for resale, which Art Seen, will not permit. If you wish to order more than two artworks of any given size, or if you would like to give a larger number as gifts, please contact info@artseeneditions.com regarding your needs and we will work with you directly.
