Few months ago when I met Tonya Stephen at TonyaStephens.net we quickly realized that we were both painters and she told me about a place online where I could sell my paintings or the image of my paintings.
This place is Fine Art America. Until then I had no idea I could even sell my paintings online.
If you are interested in selling your paintings, photographs or any type of art, you might be interested in this post. I know this is a bit of a different theme for this blog, but I think it was worth it to introduce FineArtAmerica for those who might be interested.
Introducing Fine Art America
Last week I finally took the time to download most of the images of my paintings and some photographs as well on this site. So, for the fun of it, I wanted to give you a tour to Fine Art America, in case you are an artist wanting to sell your art.
Not only can you sell paintings and photographs on Fine Art America, but you can also sell the follow …
- Glass art
- Digital Art
- Pastels… and more.
As soon as you upload your images you can instantly sell your prints on demand to the world. All you need to do is give some information about your art, using keywords, set your mark-ups, and Fine Art America will do the rest.
They will fulfill orders on your behalf taking care of the printing, framing, matting, packaging, shipping and payments. I think that’s pretty cool, isn’t it?
How Does Fine Art America Get Paid?
For each painting, picture or any piece of art that you want to sell through this site, all you need to do is choose a mark-up price. Such mark-up will be what you will receive as payment for your art sold. The difference is what Fine Art America will get paid for the service they provide.
Paid and Free Accounts
For a free account you can create a profile, promote and sell your prints on demands, but you can only upload under 25-30 images. For the premium membership which is $30 per year there are additional features, such as your own free website featuring your art for promotion, and especially unlimited amount of image uploads.
In my case, I didn’t hesitate to get the premium package since I have tons of images I wouldn’t mind to sell.
Blog and Press Release
Fine Art America also provide a blog and press release service that you can use to promote your art. You can use your writing skills to talk about and promote your art, which is a cool feature that I will definitely be using as well as they’re free website which comes with the package.
