Original Prints vs. Limited Edition Prints vs. Open Edition Prints
The final thing that I want to say about Prince is that you can also create original prints, which we looked at about how to make ah print original. What can you apply to the print? There are also other ways of creating original prints other than applying something to the print. For example, a tintype or a Santa type is another way of creating an original print that's a one off print. So look into ways to make originals.

So have fun branding, which is really just storytelling, and don't be afraid of it. And I hope that you come up with a really beautiful story to tell
