I recall a thread some time back but can’t remember much about it. The issue is raising itself with me and I thought I’d seek some advice.
When producing a limited edition print, is it okay to then sell that print in the form of postcards, on a calendar or in a book?
Should be interesting to see if this opens a can of worms.
It is a can of worms because of unscrupulous traders introducing second editions that undermine the uniqueness of customers that have purchased Limited Editions in good faith. This is why my prints have ‘Single Limited Editions’ written on them.
The Fine Art Trade Guild guidelines which for me hold much integrity, permit small reproductions to be used for the purpose of advertising; such as flyers, leaflets and cards, but unless the markets have changed recently, nothing else. Google is your friend to find their website.
For me to introduce ‘canvas editions’ after the print run has run its course is underhand. In summary, I would suggest that you can run whatever type of edition you want although to sleep soundly at night, I suggest that you come clean with your intentions from the onset in order that customers know exactly what they are getting for their money.
