    ok, so I thank everyone for the pros and cons, but I still need help with this question:
    what if I want the buyer to know that they're getting the first print off the negative, but I don't want to commit myself to how many prints in total I expect to create?
    How do I label the photograph?
    Thanks...

    Brooks Jensen had some a really good blog on this on his LensWork website; unfortunately, I'm not sure where it is located. Basically, just mark the image as "Image #1". You don't need the edition size. However, you need to check; in some states (Hawaii being one) you need an edition size for limited edition prints.
