art reproductions/prints

I’m thinking of buying some pictures for Christmas presents and/or upcoming birthdays.

I’m a little short on cash, though, and I notice that even some art prints seem to go for over 100 UK pounds, when I’ve previously bought nice actual paintings for half that price, with frames and all. I also notice that some places talk of “art prints” and “art transfers” separately.

So... what should I know when buying art reproductions? Are there certain places I should look online? Certain keywords to check for that suggest good quality or bad, in the reproduction itself, or the frame, or even the packaging? Anything else?
