There is a distinct difference between a print and a reproduction and it has to do with who creates the final product and how it is made. In the art world, Prints are made personally by the artist, by hand as lithographs, linocuts, serigraphs etc. These come typically in limited editions only because the elements used to create them degrade over time and can no longer be produced exactly the same.
A reproduction is created from a digital file and printed on a high quality inkjet printer by a Master Printer using the best archival inks and media to produce an almost perfect replica of the original artwork, time after time for open editions or until a limited edition is sold out.
