Is there any restrictions on selling our own artwork on canvas that we have submitted to stock agency's on a royalty free basis?

no, if you are selling it as royalty free you are free to sell, use it yourself as you please.

You just can't call your prints 'limited edition'

Is it the same if you're selling your images as RM?  I was under the impression I could still sell fine art prints even though I have the same images on Alamy, PSC and MyLoupe as RM.

Yikes, am I wrong?

Is what the same? Calling them 'limited edition'? Or just selling them?

I think you can sell them as and how you want ... you are, after all, the copyright owner.

But if you sell an image as a 'limited edition' fine art print I would imagine buyers would be pretty pissed off if they then saw their treasure illustrating an article in a magazine, or plastered over billboards.

Sorry, I didn't make myself clear. Leaf said you are free to sell fine are if your images have been submitted as royalty free. I was wondering if the same holds true if the images you want to sell as fine art have also been marketed as RM.  I understand you can't put "limited edition" on them.  I hadn't thought about that until Leaf mentioned it, but it certainly makes sense.

you can do a 'signed by the artist' limited edition though.

Let me start by saying that about 45% of my income comes from selling prints through art consultants, galleries and at art festivals.

I have an image that is used for all the product packaging for a fine art paper manufacturer. I get a lot of orders for that print from people who saw the image on the packaging. I've also gotten orders from people who saw the same image in an online travel guide.

My best selling print got that way from taking orders from people who found out that I sell prints of the image they saw in a calendar.

David Meunch, Galen Rowell, William Neill and pretty much every modern photographer offer their images through stock agencies. When you go to their galleries, you will see the same images offered as Limited and Open Edition prints.
