What's the difference between limited edition and open edition prints?

About limited edition prints
 
As the name suggests, only a limited number of prints can be made available for purchase. For example, if you decide to sell a limited run of 25 prints, once those 25 prints have sold, that limited edition will no longer be available and you cannot sell any more. The exclusive nature of a limited edition print effectively raises its value and, therefore, its price.
 
About open edition prints
 
Unlike limited edition prints, open edition prints may be endlessly reproduced. Because there's no limit to the number of prints that can be made, an open edition print is priced lower than a limited edition print.
 
Currently, Saatchi Art offers a printing service for open editions only. Though we don't offer a limited edition option at the moment, we're working on providing this service in the future. In the meantime, if you'd like to sell limited edition prints, we require you to supply the prints yourself and to indicate in the title of each print that it is “Limited Edition number X [the print number] of X [the total number of prints to be made].” For example: Limited Edition 5 of 25.
