Primarily photographers and possibly painters might have an answer.
ALL of my work is done in limited editions, for any one particular Art work.
I am looking for a system to track edition numbers, for my copies, in my inventory.
I already, hand sign EVERY print, with the edition #:
Example: 3/250 or 5/100 etc.
I also put this in the COA that accompanies the Art work.
This allows me to keep it with the art work. Then at point of sale, I can enter it into the receipt.
However, when working in my shop, I would like to know what the edition number, that I've reached, is. Then I can number the new piece accordingly. It is very important I keep this accurate.
I know I can go back through the receipts to see what sells, however that is not efficient.
Although I am not an advocate of Square, it is what I use at POS.
However I do not find a good way to input that data into the inventory, prior to shows.
Example: I might be bring 5 copies of one particular art piece to a show... 11/250, 12/250, 18/250, 19/250 & 24/250.
I would have to create new items, for every edition, instead of just an inventory count.
I am not proficient with Square, mostly because I don't like it, so I don't want to learn it better :-)
I've talked with the Square support people. Mostly useless.
Anybody have a good system?
In Square would help, however I'm up for other ideas.
This is not a matter of just a few pieces. I have a fairly large inventory.
If the only solution entails they be in consecutive integers, I can handle that by just hand doing the, out of order ones, until I'm back to sequential.
