The time has finally arrived. Believe me when I say, "it's been a long time coming." Red 2 is my first official Art Print. Each painting will be signed by me and including my official Chinese Stamp on each print.
I've always wanted an affordable way to share my art with just about everyone including anyone, and prints have always been the solution to that idea. I also wanted to add value to my art prints without adding more cost.
How do I do that? First, I'm going to make this an open edition. Basically, open editions are handled by PODs. PODs are print on demand companies like Fine Art America. They do excellent work, but there's no signature on the prints that you buy from them. I found a company in Taiwan that made prints for me at a reasonable price. That means that all my prints will have my signature on them. Pretty cool huh?
The final leg in this journey was deciding on COAs. COAs, for most people, add more value, but for me, I think it's a waste of paper. A COA to me is like sewing on a Niki emblem on a shirt, anyone can do it. At the moment, there are no single, official COAs. What that means is you can make your own COA.
So, starting with my prints, I'm going to put two signatures on my paintings. One is my art signature and the other is my Chinese stamp. The Chinese stamp will be my official COA.
What do you think?
"Red 2" is my official start in making prints. The digital art print is signed and stamped with my Chinese name. The image is 8 3/4 by 6 1/4 with a one inch white boarder on all four sides. You can order one by going to my Etsy site.
