It is possible to have all of the wonderful paintings that one loves and adores by collecting quality reproductions. These copies are of excellent quality and are available to collectors in a few different ways from any print shop. They can be ordered one at a time more easily if the print shop uses the giclee process for printing. This is a special inkjet printer that allows the entire process to be done more easily than it once was. This keeps the cost down for the artist and so this will also pass savings on down to the collector.
It is also possible to order reproductions done as lithographs. This process is a lot more complex and much more expensive, however, it is preferred by some collectors. The down side to this type of printing may be that the artist, for cost efficiency reasons, may mass produce these copies. That means that the reproductions may be over produced, and this will keep the value of it down depending on other criteria. The advantage is that this is a quality printed product that looks like the original.
With the giclee process, it is possible to produce one copy or many. This may work out in the best interest of everyone, from the artist to the customer, because it keeps the affordability in check as well as giving the artist the option to limit the number of reproductions that are produced. This will likely see the value of them increase over time depending on other variables. This type of printing seems to be the most popular and has been in the last decade since it gained a lot of publicity.
