What's the difference between buying limited edition vs. open edition prints?

About limited edition prints
As the name suggests, only a limited number of prints will be made available for purchase. For example, if the artist is selling a limited run of 25 prints, once those 25 prints have sold, that limited edition will no longer be available to purchase. 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.
