Galleries, artists and photographers often want to sell their prints as a Limited Edition or Open Edition; with a signature and information on the paper type and print. Enhance the desirability of your artwork, create demand and increase its value.
Managing your editions can be difficult, especially if you have a large number of images. Hand signing each print can also be tricky if you're sending prints directly to your customers from your printers.
Point101 offers a solution - trade customers can set up and manage their Limited Edition prints, using Point101's online tool.
Each edition has a unique Limited Edition label attached to the back of the print, which is signed by the artist.
Each label includes details of the print method, size, paper type, ink set and date of print. Labels can be branded with or without a reference to Point101 and can be limited or open edition.
The source, size and date of the print instils customer confidence and confirms it has been produced by a professional printer using the correct setup and archival processes.
Each label measures 105 x 45mm.
Certificates of Authenticity
In addition to labels, there's the option to add a Certificate of Authenticity for each edition you sell, which includes all the information contained in the label, plus a thumbnail of the image, a unique certificate ID (which can be traced), a hallmark and information about the artist, artwork or gallery.
Certificates come complete in a glassine sleeve and can be stored safely in the knowledge your print will have a matching ID and date of issue if it's ever lost. It can also be attached to the back of a frame.
Each certificate measures 297 x 105mm.
How it works
Your labels and COA can be set up using our live preview tool and customised to include the title of the artwork, artist name, gallery, bio and website if appropriate.
We will send you an initial set of assets to sign and return. You're then able to order print editions on demand from your account, under the Limited Editions tab.
When you buy a print, it's added to your basket with the correct paper type and size; this makes it quick and easy to order when you get a sale. You also have the opportunity to order artist proofs before making your editions available for sale.
We'll include the correct label on each edition sold, and you can keep track of all your artworks online. You also have the option to store your labels and certificates, if you customise and send out prints yourself.
If you're an existing trade customer, you can start using the service immediately. Otherwise, you need to apply for an account here first.
Our labels are made from Archival Rag End Leaf 100% cotton fibre, acid-free, lightfast and developed to the exact standards of the Dutch National Archive in Den Haag.
We print on each label and certificate using lightfast ink to ensure they last as long as the print itself.
We recommend they are signed using a pencil or pigment ink liner.
Our pricing includes shipping to all countries and returns postage within the UK. Returning signed labels and COAs from international destinations will incur additional charges, which you will need to cover.
The setup cost is £10 (for the entire set of editions). To start, we'll send you a minimum of 12 labels to sign and return. Each time one of your editions sells, an additional £2 is added to your basket when you order it.
