SIGNING YOUR PRINTS

Signing a printed photo or artwork can be an integral part of the creative process. It marks the completion of your work.
Are you going to sell it? Is it a gift? Do you plan on locking it away to never see the light of day again? It doesn’t matter: if you ask anyone at Orms, we’d say an original artwork should always be signed.

Consider signing yours, because you made it. Consistency in editions and signing also conveys trust to any potential collectors.

Understandably, signing any original work can lead to some nervousness. You are branding your work; you are forever binding the print to your identity. So, where do you sign, and what is the right way to do it?
