How do I sign a limited edition giclée print?

If you have decided to go with a limited edition print run then you should make sure that when the prints are made there is sufficient space under the image for a signature, title and edition number to be placed in pencil. There is a recognized convention for this, with the edition number, say 25/85 appearing on the bottom left, the artists signature on the bottom right and the title of the print in the middle. Over the years I have found that a soft pencil, for example a 4 – 5B will be best for making these identifying marks on your giclée print, but different papers will warrant different pencils, so a little bit of trial and error on an off-cut of paper will be a great idea before you set about marking the actual print.
