I hope this is the right place to start this discussion? Just curious to know if your choice goes to particular printing process I.e: lithography, screen prints, offset, giclees...

Thanks for the replies...I think my English needs to be perfected...I wanted to know if any of you mind/care about the process used by the artist : I.e Do you consider a giclee (inkjet) less important than a screenprint? And do you tend to chose one process over another when you buy?

Personally, I do tend to consider giclees an easy option for an artist o don t buy that many.. :notworthy:

my collection is mostly silkscreens, and i'd prefer it this way, however, I do own 6 Jeremy Geddes prints, and they are all giclee...and they are incredible.

Cheers!

BTW, Firehouse (Chuck Sperry / Ron Donovan) are the best screen printers. IMO.
pay via paypal, use credit card,file dispute at the 20 day mark if suspicious. don't deal with noobs. don't trade with noobs. request feedback ahead of time. there are lots of good people 'round here.

Rule of thumb: screenprint > giclee >> litho.
Of course, there are always exceptions. For example, Emek giclees are generally much better than other artists' giclees, so his giclees are almost as visually pleasing as many printers' screenprints.

Then you factor in things like metallic inks and various paper/foil/stock options, and you have a veritable plethora of choices/options available.

Another rule of thumb:
IMHO, One should only buy what you know you would like to hang on your walls (unless your objective is to flip or failip). If you haven't recognized it already, not everything you buy can be hung right away, and as time goes by, your tastes may change. Therefore, at any point in time when you look through your flat file, you may notice that you have items you don't think you want to hang on the wall now. That's OK, because you may change your mind again on these items at some point in the future. The important thing is that the rule of thumb can only possibly apply to the point in time when you are purchasing a given poster/print. If you choose to get rid of posters/prints that you no longer think you'll ever hang on your walls, then you will be brightening other people's lives by giving them an opportunity to hang something that only exists in your flat file. Economics then comes into play; supply/demand, price, etc... but that's a different topic for another thread, and has been beaten to death already.
