The term “print” is often confused with modern day reproductions or photocopies. Some artists create an original drawing or painting and then have mechanical reproductions made to sell at a more affordable price.

For example, the term “giclée print” indicates that the image has been reproduced by means of an ink jet printer. They are sometimes signed by the artist but each one is exactly like another.

The difference between an original print and a copy is that each original print is hand pulled from a plate or block which the artist has created and individually inked.


When you look at various original prints in an edition you will see slight variations in colour and pressure. This is part of the magic and charm of creating original prints!
