OK so what is the difference between a poster and a limited edition print — why is the print so much more expensive?
- Prints are limited edition, posters are not. Our prints are made in limited editions of 250 of each size, so once those 250 prints have been sold, no more prints are available, this makes them more valuable.
- Prints are hand signed and numbered by the artist and posters are not.
- Prints are GPA certified giclee prints, posters are not.
- Prints are printed on acid free heavy watercolor paper using museum quality inks rated for 108 years, posters are not.
- Prints come double matted with acid free matting and a Certificate of Authenticity, posters do not.
- Prints ship flat, posters ship rolled
What does giclée mean?
Giclée is a term coined by Jack Guganne in 1991 for fine art prints made on inkjet printers. Our prints conform to the standards of the GPA (Giclee Printers Association) due to the inks, paper, and resolution used to create our prints.

What does the number fraction mean on my print?
Our prints are made in limited editions of 250 of each size, the number denotes which print of 250 you have, so if yours is 5/250 you have the fifth one of the 250 total prints.
What do you mean by limited edition?
Our prints are made in limited editions of 250 of each size, so once those 250 prints have been sold, no more prints are available, this makes them more valuable.
Why are the dimensions different between the sizes of prints of different images, for example the LG Oyster print measures differently from the LG Salmon?
The reason for this is that the proportions of some pieces are different from others, we have 2 sets based on their proportions:
Are all the notecards the same size?
Yes, they all measure 4 ¼ x 5 ½ inches and they all fit in an A2 envelope which is included with each card whether an individual card or a boxed set.
Is anything printed on the inside of the card?
All cards are blank inside, so are meant for a personalized hand-written message—a rare thing these days, so a hand written card really means something.
Are the notecards hand signed?
No the signature is printed on them. The limited edition prints and originals are the only products featuring a hand-signed signature by Nick Mayer.
What kind of paper is used to create the notecards?
Bright white card stock.
Do you sell your originals?
Yes, most have sold, however the originals currently available can be seen here.
How are originals priced?
Originals are priced primarily based upon time devoted to the painting, its size, and its complexity.
