So today marks a new milestone for Niki's Art... a teeny weeny one... but a milestone none the less. I've officially hooked up with a print on demand service so that I may provide prints of some of my artwork.
|This being the first one to be made available. Come on, you know you want to buy it.|
I've been wanting to get prints of my work done for quite some time now. After all, one of the reasons I paint is so that I can share my work with other people who enjoy it, but let's be real. Not everyone can afford a $250+ painting, and even if they could, that would only be one person who would forever get to enjoy that painting. Prints allow for a much wider audience, and a happier me because now more people can have them in their homes. Ideally, I would like to invest in a high quality printer and inks so that I can have full control over my prints, but for now I've decided to place my trust in Crated.com. I just recently received the proof I ordered and was pretty pleased with the results. I was even more pleased to find the colors of the final print matched my computer monitor image to a tee, which will make future pieces easier to adjust.
This site offers a few different options. For starters, you can order just the straight up print, or you have the option to order it already framed and matted. There's also the option for a printed canvas. The original size of the cat painting above is an 8"x10" but it is also available in larger sizes. I should also note, if you do decide to order the print by itself, there is no white boarder and the print comes delivered in a mail tube, so the print itself will be rolled up. Not a huge deal, but this might provide a small challenge if you're framing it yourself.
You may have noticed I've added a link to my Crated store to the sidebar. If cats aren't your thing, I encourage you to keep checking back, as I will be posting some more artwork very soon. But, of course, if you are one of those people who totally love this painting, you can order the print here.
