All Limited Edition prints are signed and numbered (S/N) by the artist. Limited Edition prints are restricted to a certain number. For example, if 400 prints are made from an original painting, once theyre gone, thats it. There is no limit to the number of open edition prints of a particular painting.Thats why Limited Edition prints are more expensive and more valuable to collectors than "open" edition. Rare objects are more valuable. An Artists Proof (AP), generally, is the first 5% - 10% of the Limited Edition prints that come off the press.
If the Limited Edition is 400 s/n, there would be 20 - 40 APs. This status is noted on the print. Collectors prefer APs because their value increases even more than a Limited Edition as time goes by.
