    Thank you for your opinions everyone!
    I have decided to limit them to 12 because if feels like a good number in my gut. Thanks for the link ROL, it was interesting reading, I'll try to keep the dying as a final resort if nothing else works.

    12 sounds like a good number to start with. I've been doing editions of 4 for the longest time and they sell out fairly quickly now (I had one edition sell out in less than a month). If I could start over though I would do things differently, I'd really like to do more with some of the stuff only a few people will ever see.

    ...must be nice to sell enough to be concerned with capping your editions.

    When you do these as limited editions - do 1-3 AP(Artist Proof) prints for you to keep.

    Be up front about the Artist Proof number. Also up front if you are doing an edition in one size and will be doing an edition in another size.

    Or, you could be like a Kinkade and have a 'limited edition' of over 34,000 prints.

    I plan to never edition and die earlier than expected as to avoid editioning and selling my photographs at a premium.

    Even better, fake your death, then show up as your long-lost twin.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Limited editions are good for business people who happen to be dealing in photography. Open editions are great for photographers with faith in the quality of their photographs.

    I would never ever make a limited edition. Perhaps I would make three prints at a time. Plus minus 1 or 2!
    A year or two or ten I would make new prints from the same negative. On different paper possible, because the old one is gone or I want to.
    Or I want to try a new developer or tone differently.
    I will be a bit wiser or dumber in the future and will change so I will print diffenrtly. I never take notes of my darkroom work so that it will not take me down the wrong route in the future.
    As an artist professional or amateur one should follow ones believes and state of mind. Not what Galleries or business men expact from one.
    Then again this makes life easy for me because I hate taking notes and am lazy.

    Limited edition

    Peter Lik sells his prints as 1/500 haha!

    I agree it's hard to make editions with printed media now, and I for one don't have those storage capacities available to make a full run like that.
