What are Printer's Proofs
and Artist’s Proofs?


History: In the early days of printing, Artist's Proofs and Printer’s Proofs were comprised of the first few color-approved prints pulled off the press at the time of the run. Because press plates could wear down over the course of a printing, these were regarded as the sharpest and most desirable prints to have. This subset of prints, generally split between the artist and the publisher, are highly regarded by collectors.

Printer’s Proofs are the first editions off the press, and this singular edition is given to the printer of record—Greenwich Workshop, in this case. We are the only recipient of that particular edition, and are giving collectors a once in a lifetime opportunity to own this unique one-off edition.

Artist’s Proofs are small editions made by the printer for the artist. They are marked as "AP"s, and may be signed and numbered as well. Because Artist's Proofs are in limited quantities and "closer to the artist’s hand,” signed Artist's Proofs tend to be more valuable than the prints of a signed and numbered limited edition.

Why are Artist's Proofs and Printer’s Proofs
so sought-after?


Artist’s Proofs and Printer’s Proofs are valuable for a number of reasons. First, their place as a part of the artist’s or publisher’s collection often means they have been stored rather than displayed, thus are in perfect condition. Second, there are vastly fewer of them. Their rarity as a subset of a given edition increases their value. When an edition is sold out and the secondary market is established, an Artist’s Proof or Printer’s Proof will often rise at a greater rate than the rest of the edition.
