LIMITED EDITION PRINTS
Limited Edition Prints increase in value after the entire edition sells out. Artist Proof Prints (A/P) and Environmental Prints (ENV) are valued at 1 1/2 times that of the regular Signed and Numbered (S/N) prints.
Classic Edition Posters do not increase in value as they are part of an open edition.
The last Limited Edition Insurance Sheet Jim released was in 2018 at the time of his retirement. You can view and print the Insurance Sheet HERE. For current values on sold-out, Limited Edition Prints and Original Paintings, individuals will need to seek out an Art Appraiser.

Looking For Damage
Make sure to look over your print well for damage as some flaws are hard to see! Prints may have dents, scratches, mold, water damage, etc. Hold the print at different angles in good light and scan the entire surface for flaws. If a print is shrink wrapped (plastic wrap) or framed under glass it may be hard to see the imperfections. If it is a valuable piece you may want to ask to examine the print out from under the shrink wrapping or glass.
Also make sure the print is not faded. Faded prints have a blue hue/wash to them. Check our images in our portfolio to see what the colors should look like. The prints that have a history of fading worst are those from the mid 1980's and earlier. Fade proof inks did not exist then so prints for that time will fade even under “normal" indoor house lighting!! Any print, no matter when it was printed, will fade if exposed to direct sunlight for hours a day. UV proof, conservation quality, glass can block 99% of UV rays for framing older prints or protecting any art from harsh sunlight.
At the time of Jim's retirement in May of 2018 he is no longer issuing appraisals for his original paintings. Original paintings will need to be appraised by an Art Appraiser in order to determine an Insurance Value and from there a selling price can be determined if needed.
