What is a Limited Edition?
Limited Edition means that there will only ever be a predetermined number of prints produced of each photograph. Once the edition sells out, there will never be another reprint of that photograph. Limited editions come with a certificate of authenticity and a digitally imprinted signature. (Read signature Details below titled “Is Art Signed”). Limited edition sizes are generally 10 per size (5 sizes). Limited editions start at 24 x 16 in size. Unsigned open editions of these images may be available at sizes 18 x12 and smaller.
Are there any additional Edition types available for purchase?
Dreaux Fine Art photographs are created in multiple editions. For more information about any of the editions listed below, please contact Cameron Dreaux via email (Cameron@dreaux.com) or by simply visiting our contact page.
With each standard image release, only 1 of each size (generally 5 sizes) numbered and signed High-Definition Artist Proofs are made available. These editions are regarded as personal to the artist and therefore highly sought after by collectors.
Unlike limited editions, Open Edition prints do not have a predetermined number of prints and are available in multiple media types.
Special edition prints in the size of 18 x 12 or smaller. Generally of Limited Edition images. Acrylic Blocks are not signed and are considered an open edition.
Is the art signed?
Yes. Each Limited Edition artwork features a digitally embedded signature on the face. Paint pen, hand signed signatures are available upon request. Please feel free to reach out to me (Cameron@dreaux.com) to discuss the advantages / disadvantages for the different signature types. Open Editions are not signed.
Care and Handling
How do I hang my artwork?
Your Dreaux Fine Art edition has been shipped with the appropriate hanging equipment already attached to the back of the frame. Picture hangers and/or wall anchors are recommended but are not included with your purchase as we are not aware of how and where you wish to mount your photograph.
How do I clean my artwork?
Extreme caution should be used whenever it is necessary to clean the surface of your Fine Art photograph. Per the manufacturer’s instructions, dust the picture glazing with a soft, damp cloth or chamois. Apply only light pressure, rinse with clean water, and dry by blotting the cloth. Dry or gritty cloths may cause surface scratches and create a static electric charge on the surface.
Do not use ammonia based window cleaning sprays, kitchen scouring compounds, or solvents such as acetone, gasoline, or lacquer thinner to clean your image, as this may cause permanent damage to your image. We recommend 50/50 vinegar and water mixture or non ammonia window spray. Only use high quality microfiber cloth.
Acrylic Blocks can only be cleaned with acrylic cleaner and high quality microfiber cloth.
A soft, dry cloth may be used to remove spots or debris. Avoid the use of liquid and chemical cleaning products, as these will cause the protective finish to deteriorate over time.
A high-quality microfiber cloth may be used on our black cube frames. Apply only light pressure, rinse with clean water, and dry by blotting the cloth. We recommend using compressed or canned air to remove any surface dust that accumulates on the liner over time, making sure that no moisture is expelled from the can during the cleaning process.
How do I light my artwork?
Lighting your image properly involves using a mixture of spotlights and spreads. The proper degree of spread will depend on the distance of the light fixture from the photograph. We like 5000k bulbs the best for lighting the work. It is best to seek the advice of an electrician or lighting professional to ensure the proper installation of lighting to complement your space.
