STANDARD, LIMITED EDITION,
& ARTIST PROOF PRINTS
Images come in a range of Standard, Limited Edition, and Artist Proof editions. Standard Edition prints include images that have no maximum limit on the print run of those images.
Limited Edition prints are the most well worked and sought after images. These typically have a maximum print run of 100, although this varies according to projects. These are collectable items and with ongoing sales have a continued growth of retail value with successive sale. A request for a ‘Statement of Value’ can be ordered from Tristan Stuart Photography.
Artist Proof prints are rare images that were personally used by Tristan Stuart for the original creation, inspection, and final development of Limited Edition Prints. For this reason these prints may not hold the same colour renditions, sizes, or composition of Limited Edition versions.
All Limited Edition and Artist Proof prints come with a ‘Certificate of Authenticity’. These certificates include un-replicatble wax signatures, in traditional sealing waxes.
Print dimensions come in a variety of sizes, however Tristan Stuart may recommend a size which most effectively displays the detail, and colour of images. However, images can be prepared in any size. If you have a preferred size you can include these dimensions in the 'request quote' form.
Work is framed in rare Tasmanian woods, handcrafted by Nitchi Design. From left to right these timbers are as following: Blackwood, Celery Top Pine, Huon Pine, Myrtle, Silver Wattle, Sassafras, Leatherwood, and Tasmanian Oak. Additionally, we offer standard black and white framing also. Alternatively custom frames can be organised upon request.
For further framing information refer to: http://www.nitchidesigntasmanianframes.com.au
All images are printed on a mix of the highest grade archival papers, using a Lambda printer using modern laser technology and traditional photochemical development. This enables the highest possible colour luminosity and sharpness. These materials and technologies ensure over 100 years of quality in normal conditions.
Limited edition numbers are hand written by Tristan Stuart on the reverse of the image using traditional permanent 'iron gall' inks. While some photographers prefer to include signatures on the front of their work, Tristan Stuart believes his work is unique and identifiable enough to stand for itself without the need of signatures taking away from the purity of the image. In addition to this, certificates of authenticity are also included with all images.
