‘Special’ Limited Editions
All Special Limited Edition prints come with a Certificate of Authenticity (signed & numbered by the photographer) and a handwritten note with a story behind the image. Editions are strictly kept within the stated number of prints for the given size, regardless of paper type or mounting/framing.
If – in addition to the Certificate of Authenticity – you would like the print to be signed on the front or back, please let us know in the Comments box during checkout.
For each edition, there may be up to 5 additional artist proofs for quality control purposes. In order to promote our work, we reserve the right to offer a select number of prints at considerably larger formats to galleries and public institutions. As Bjorn’s photographs are published world-wide, we reserve the right to license our limited edition photographs for online and print publications (for example calendars, magazines and books).
Edition prices may increase, for example if an edition is starting to sell out. We reserve the right to run promotional offers on some editions from time to time.
We keep archived records of all our customers. If you’re interested in purchasing a print from an edition that has sold out, please contact us and we will try to contact previous purchasers.
‘Standard’ Limited Editions
Standard Limited Edition images differ slightly in that they are available for licensing through one of our agents. This means that these images might from time to time be available through other vendors, albeit at a lower quality and without certificate/artist signature.
Rest assured: Artist-signed prints, certificates and the ‘story behind the image’ notes that come with each image are only available here at bjornholland.com
The amount of time a photograph will last depends on a number of factors, for example: paper type, how many hours the print is exposed to light each day, the intensity of that light – and for giclee prints: what kind of inks were used to produce the print.
Framing and mounting can also be an important factor. For example, our Aluminium Dibond products protect the photograph much better against environmental factors such as humidity & temperature than a standard frame.
We recommend not to hang your prints in a sunny window or in the bathroom: Direct sunlight over prolonged periods can cause fading. Humidity can cause mould and discolouration. As long as you take care for your print, it will last you for a lifetime.
In order to achieve the highest quality possible, all our prints are done by a professional lab. Prints are produced with a white border for easy matting / mounting. The white border is added to the actual width you ordered – not “trimmed away”.
Please note that our edition numbers depend only on print size, not on the type of paper or mounting:
C-Type prints are laser-exposed onto traditional Fuji Crystal Archive photographic paper, and then developed with traditional photo chemicals. Crystal Archive is Fujicolor’s highest quality paper. Its 75-year colour-fastness makes it suitable for archival quality gallery prints.
Giclee Prints are printed onto Canson Infinity Baryta paper, using archival quality pigment inks. The Canson Baryta paper has a smooth surface and consists of an alpha-cellulose, acid-free pure white paper with the same barium sulphate coating used for traditional silver halide papers, to ensure a very high archival quality.
From file to print, our entire workflow is colour calibrated using professional monitors capable of displaying the Adobe RGB colour space. What this means to you is:
prints with a fantastic tonal range
vibrant yet natural colours
Black & White Photo Prints are true silver gelation prints, just like in ‘the old days’ of photography: The image is exposed onto traditional photo-paper, and then developed with traditional photo chemicals. You can choose between two paper options: The premium Ilford Galerie Digital Silver FB paper is a fibre-based/baryta paper with a silk-like surface. It offers a incredible tonal depth and weighs 315 g/m². The Ilford Galerie Digital Silver RC paper is a resin-coated paper. It weighs 190 g/m² and has a similar appearance to a C-Type photo paper.
When it comes to presentation, this is our favourite product: Original C-Type photo print on Fuji Crystal Archive paper (the same as our “print only” colour photographs), sandwiched between an Aluminium Dibond backing and Acrylic glass on the front. This gives a very contemporary look with incredible tonal depth – and also protects your artwork against UV rays.
By default, a hanging system is included: Large prints come with metal rails running across the back (as seen in the picture), making it easy and safe to hang the print, regardless of its weight. Small print sizes come with hanging brackets in the corners.
If you’d like to pick up your print from our studio in London: we work together with a local framing shop, which offers high-quality handmade frames.
Unfortunately we don’t offer framed prints for mail-order customers. Choosing the right frame often comes down to personal preference, and we believe it is best to see a frame and a selection of frame profiles with your own eyes, not just on screen. A professional framer will be able to show you a large variation of frames, and advise you how to find the one that best suits your print.
We have over 10 years of experience with fine art products, and are more than happy to give you our recommendation for frame designs, colour and sizes.
Print Only orders are rolled and then shipped inside a sturdy tube, including a protective surface cover to ensure it arrives undamaged.. All tubes are cut slightly larger than the print, allowing for protective padding on both ends of the tube. All prints come with a white border, giving additional protection to the corners of the actual printed area.
Acrylic Dibond orders are shipped in flat, art-secure packing with protective cover on the front.
Please allow 2-3 days for your print before it gets shipped, and up to 7 working days for Aluminium-Dibond products.
We chose our print sizes to fit into standard frame sizes. When you choose between different sizes on this product page, you will notice that the preview image changes slightly. This is to reflect different paper formats and aspect ratios. In other words: The image crop you see on the product page is exactly what you will get as your final print.Panoramic Prints come in a 3:1 aspect ratio.
Here’s a few examples of how different print sizes could look on your wall:
