    A print (a term which includes screenprint, etching, woodcut printing, lithography, digital printing) is a work of art which has been conceived by the artist to be realized as an original work of art, rather than a copy of a work in another medium. Prints are produced by drawing or carving an image onto a hard surface such as a wood block, metal plate, or stone which is in turn, transferred onto paper, fabric, aluminium, or the like, thus creating an impression, or print. The printed image that results is the exact reverse of the image on the plate.

    Limited edition artworks made their entry into the art world decades ago as an affordable way to build an art collection. Editions can cover a wide range of mediums such as: prints, photographs, sculptures and decorative arts/utilitarian products. Limited editions and artist proofs are valuable investment opportunities for new and seasoned collectors. Prints are produced in finite editions and usually exist in multiples, each created from the inked plate. The total number of impressions made is called an edition. Artists sign and number each impression to guarantee that no ilegitimate editions could be made or produced.
