1. Do you accept returns?
1. What is a limited edition print?
Editions are works of art from which an artist produces multiple copies of the same design. All editions on Ninth Editions are exclusive to our platform and will not be available for purchase anywhere else. Each edition is limited to the number specified on the artwork and in the descriptive text. For example, if an artwork is listed as 4/23, it is the fourth edition from a series of twenty-three of the same design. Once an edition has sold out, an artist will never re-issue more artworks with the same design at the same size.
2. What kind of paper do you use for limited edition prints?
For each print, we work directly with the artist to select the best paper for the artwork. In the description of each artwork, we will specify which paper has been used for that print. Please see our printer's website, here, for more information on individual substrates.
3. What is a Giclée Print?
Giclée is a French term meaning “to spray”, referring to how an inkjet printer produces works. Our print partner, Jeremy Does Art Prints, uses Epson's highest grade archival pigment inks so that your print is truly archival and with proper care should last up to 200-400 years.
4. What is an original/a unique?
If an artwork is listed as an Original Artwork or a Unique, it indicates that only one of these artworks exists. Visually, you will notice the application of whichever medium the artist is working in on the surface of the paper.
5. Why should I use UV protected glass?
Extensive exposure to UV rays will result in light damage that can cause fading and/or discolouration of artworks, photographs, and works on paper. UV protected glass will block 98% of UV rays to protect your artwork from harmful ultraviolet light so as to preserve the integrity of your artwork over time.
