How to number your prints

Generally, you should determine how many prints you'd like to make. Say in this case, you say 40. Then each print would be numbered on the bottom left 1/40, 2/40 and so on. The center would be the title in quotations. The right would be your signature and optionally the date MM/YYYY the print was made.
