What is a Limited Edition?
Overboard Art products are limited editions, meaning we will make a limited number
of a particular piece and no more. Once the edition number has been
reached the molds are retired or destroyed. Occasionally, Overboard Art
will decide to lower the edition size. Edition size can be lowered but
never increased once the piece is offered for sale. This website will
keep the public posted on current edition sizes.
The purpose of Limited Edition art is:
- To enhance the value of the piece over time, as collectable value depends, in part, on how many pieces of an edition exist.
indicate the complexity and difficulty of a piece. Pieces that take a
long time to make and demand a high degree of craftsmanship and artistic
ability usually have lower edition numbers.
- To allow us to be doing new work and keep our product line growing.
- And finally, to provide an excuse to have a party. On finishing an edition we celebrate with a party.
