Questions about your order? Want to find out more about our products? Find answers below to some of the most frequently asked questions at LUMAS.
What are the different types of LUMAS Art Edition?
There are currently four different types of LUMAS Art Editions. Master Editions are hand-signed works of art by some of today's most significant contemporary artists. With our Limited Editions, you’re getting hand-signed, limited-edition works by both established artists and exciting newcomers. LUMAS Open Editions are unlimited print runs of bestselling images and classic photographs, in a smaller format. The LUMAS ART NOW collection contains small works of art, presented with a greeting card and padded envelope, making them the perfect choice for your own art collection or as a gift.
Can I choose the size of the artwork?
Limited Editions are produced in up to three different sizes in agreement with our artists. Open Editions and LUMAS ART NOW products are available in one set format.
How are the artworks produced?
In most cases, we mount photographic prints on aluminum Dibond and seal them under acrylic glass. First, the museum-quality photo print is seamlessly mounted onto an aluminum composite panel (aluminum Dibond). This material will not warp, even in the our largest formats. We then mount the piece under shatter-resistant, crystal-clear acrylic glass. This protects the photograph, and gives it additional brilliance and depth. .
Can I select different mounting and framing options?
Yes. You can choose between an unmounted, unframed photo print, the artist’s recommendations for mounting and/or framing, and our curators’ recommendations.
Which frames are available?
You can choose between the mounting and framing options selected by the artists and our curators. Depending on the particular artwork, we offer floater frames, solid wood frames, showcase frames, photo mount frames, or ArtBoxes – all available in different colors and moulding widths. Our solid wood frames are made at our in-house frame workshop in Germany.
Do you have frames with traditional photo mats?
Yes. Many works are available matted and framed, mainly from our Open Editions and medium-sized Limited Editions. For our passe-partout mats, we exclusively use high-quality Hahnemühle museum card, guaranteed to be acid and lignin free.
How do I hang the artwork?
Easily, securely, and right out of the box! We deliver every piece with a pre-installed, professional wall-mount. Our LUMAS ART NOW pieces also come with a stand and built-in magnet. Visit our inspiration page for more picture hanging tips.
Why does it say “Bestseller”, “Last Prints”, or “Gallery Only” next to some pieces and what does that mean?
This indicates how many prints of a Limited Edition are left and how they are currently valued. A Limited Edition beceomes a Bestseller when at least half of the print run has been sold. At this time, the original price increases by 25%. Once 75% of the print run has been sold, the price increases by 50%. Last Prints are when 10% (or less) of the print run is still available. In this case, the print price increases by 100%. A Gallery Only piece is no longer available to buy online. You can only find and purchase these in a LUMAS gallery.
How much do LUMAS artworks cost?
The LUMAS Open Editions start at just $119. Pieces from the LUMAS ART NOW collection are just $34. Our Limited Editions start at under $499. Prices may vary depending on the mounting and framing options. As more of a Limited Edition print run is sold, the price – and value – of the remaining pieces increases. This value appreciation comes in three tiers: Bestseller, Last Prints, and Gallery Only. Our Master Editions undergo the usual market price fluctuations, which strongly correlate to the demand.
