FAQ’s & Specifications about Limited Edition Fine Art Prints | Fine Art

By Jeff Dillon | September 3, 2021 | All Posts

Jeff Dillon Fine Art Limited Edition Prints are custom made when your order is created. There is no in-hand inventory which ensures the collector the best finished quality. 

Limited Edition Prints are created on artist-selected materials with the finest inks and finishes available that I have determined most closely capture the look of my original paintings.

The paper prints are rich a full of colour with a glossy finish that gives a real beautiful finished look. The high-quality canvas provides a consistent and smooth glossy printing surface that allows for an incredibly wide colour gamut and deep rich blacks, while still offering the traditional look and feel of artist canvas. The semi-gloss finish ensures full colour saturation.

I work with a professional photographer at Langen Studios that has the experience and skills necessary to take high quality photos of my fine art paintings. He  uses high-resolution digital cameras and exceptional lens, the resulting image is then strategically adjusted in post-production for optimal output. He takes into account the lighting and setup in his studio to capture every detail of my work, ensuring that the final reproductions are as close to the original as possible. Because high-accuracy colour results are so important, the photographer and I together with the original painting start work through comparing and colour matching the final photo to match your original art as closely as possible.

The following is a specification of the differences between canvas and paper prints, as well as some frequently asked questions.

Fine Art Canvas Prints:  artist-selected canvas has stood the test of time. Canvas prints come ready to hang and make a great addition to any home or office. These timeless pieces offer the soft, woven texture that compliments almost any décor. It has more of a real look as a original painting on the wall from a point of the texture and shape of the canvas. Canvas has a textured protective glossy finish. Protection and careful handling is required as surface of print can mark/scratch easily.

Fine Art Paper Prints: My fine art prints use pigment-based ink on bright thick satin (gloss) white cellulose based, latex saturated, wet strength paper quality and are of the highest colour rich quality. Protection and careful handling is required as surface of print can mark/scratch easily. The only consideration with fineart paper prints is that you would have to get the piece framed. When choosing the glass I recommend Anti Reflective Picture Frame Glass. It allows over 97% light transmission and reduces reflections to less than 1%. The result, enhanced colours, brightness and reflection-free viewing for optimal clarity.

What is the difference between open and limited editions prints? Jeff Dillon Fine Art only produces limited edition prints. Limited Editions prints, have a fixed number of prints produced and will not be produced again which makes the prints more rare. Where as with open editions, the number of prints that can be created and sold is unlimited.

Will my prints increase in value? Just like with any other artwork, the value of limited edition prints can also increase over time. As limited prints in an edition get greatly reduced or sold out, their prices may increase significantly in the secondary market.
