What are silkscreen prints?
Silkscreen prints are also known as serigraphs. They are made by hand using a traditional technique that allows artists to produce multiple impressions of an artwork. The images are pulled onto special paper with a specific texture and weight.
Original silkscreen prints are always produced in limited editions. The artist decides how many copies will be made and each print is numbered as follows: impression number over edition size. For example, 3/100 indicates that the print is the third impression in a regular edition of 100. Each copy is numbered, dated and signed by the artist. While additional impressions are often made for each regular edition, you will always have a confirmation of the actual numbers because each artwork comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Silkscreen prints should be framed and protected by glass.
The colours appearing on your computer screen may be slightly different from the true colours of the prints. We recommend viewing artworks on different computers to get a better sense of the colours.
