I think if you printed a neg for a billion years the light and heat would
eventually fade the negative or transparency.
So proper run for these photography processes would be about say a trillion.
Then your image would start to degrade and you'd have to charge less.
This is normal darkroom printing of course and would not apply to digital
printing as how many times can you say Yes and no in the wrong order?

I'm of the opinion that each process has it's natural run. You can only make
a couple hundred silk screens or etchings. Others printing processes more.
Others less.
Photography is right around the trillion mark. To shorten it artificially to
create a market is spurious and contrived.

You can only make one monoprint! Better charge a lot for THAT one!
Three triprints. But there ain't no such thing!
