I have just started to explore the option of making prints of my work. My question for everyone is this: Do you limit your prints (i.e. #/10 or #/20 and so on) for each piece? Or do you make prints continuously for certain pieces? What are the pros and cons of each option? I'm trying to figure out what I should start out with. For example, I have a couple watercolors I had prints made and I'm trying to decide if I should only have a certain number made to increase the value or not disclose and ending to the prints.
Also, what do you do with the originals? Keep them or eventually sell them when the prints run out?
If any of that doesn't make sense, I'm happy to clarify!
I find that print on demand is a good way to go to ensure your customer is getting a quality new reproduction. Make sure the printers make your reproduction directly from the original when a client requests one. And unless you already have a gallery interested in a specific number of signed reproductions; you are signing those reproductions at an event or are supplying a limited edition for retail--it is not necessary to have a whole bunch sitting around, as they can easily degrade and as pointed out before, take up space--better used for creating new originals!
If you were referring to original prints, in my opinion, should always be limited edition. Same goes with giclees.
