When a copy of a painting is made, it is considered an impression when creating artwork prints.  Throughout history when a copy was made, the operator was much more interested in the quality of the reproduction than he or she was how many of each they could make.  The best prints are those that are done skillfully and keep the integrity of the original piece in tact as far as the color variations and the dimensions of the original.  The more flawless the reproduction is, the more likely it is to be more valuable along with the other important criteria attached to it such as who the artist was that did the original work and how many copies of it were actually made.  These things will factor into being able to give a final value to the artwork prints once they are completed. 

In the past, artwork prints were created using a screen to press the ink into and then through a series of dots, and the final product was reproduced on paper.  This was of high quality but not as good as those making them would like it to be.  Then, there was the option of choosing a lithograph, which could become extremely expensive and again this was not the truest form of reproduction that they were searching for, and so they continued to develop new technology.

Today, giclee is a way to make many copies, or even just a few, with stunning quality.  This is done through special inkjets that were created especially for this process.  This is the preferred way to purchase artwork prints today.  Gone are the dots that people could once detect in other types of copying, and it also eliminated is the need to have to reset the equipment with each color.  This process not only produced better quality results, but it also enabled the person making the reproductions to do so at a much more cost effective rate. 

Artwork prints are usually signed, numbered, and dated by the artist or the person licensed to do them for him or her.  This is a great way to add to any collection of paintings without having to purchase the original.  Original paintings are often difficult to find as many are museum pieces and not available to be bought in the first place.  Others find their way to expensive auction houses and are so expensive that they are out of reach financially to most of the general public.  Other originals are owned by individuals who will not, for any reason, part with them.

If there is a painter that has captured one’s imagination and they want to display their work in a home, office, or business, a reproduction of high quality is the best bet.  These often times are valued very highly, and that value can increase as time goes on.  Many people would rather have the fine quality copies to display just because the original would be too valuable to present in places that aren’t climate controlled or free from threats such as floods and fires.
