    If you do, where do you sign your prints and using what? Also, what information? name, number of print and date?

    i sign the back and date it in pencil
    and if matted, i sign the window mat
    the same way name+date.
    i never drymount. my mounted prints from the 80s
    are all separating from the board, but my window mats look fine ...

    when i sell something i sign my name with pencil under the right side of the print which is the traditional manner. 40 years ago i would number the prints, but now, i rarely print editions so i don't brother.

    I never give an image a name, or at least as far as the client is concerned. I sometimes have a working name in my head.

    A plain, old fashioned #2 pencil works just fine for me.

    Have you tried to just through them into the press again? I haven't because mine are all fine, but I heard that has worked for some people who had the same problem.

    Why not sign the way your buyer asks you to sign.
