Q&A from Craft Shows: Can I Get Prints of Your Work?
One reason I love shows so much is that a wide variety of people visit my booth. People have lots of questions and I've started a series on Thursdays to answer some of those questions. (My next show, btw, is the Greater Gardiner River Festival, June 17, 2017).
This week, I tackle an easy one: Can I get prints of your work?
The organizers of most retail shows I attend prefer that I stock my booth with original artwork. Along with my layered paper collage wall art, refrigerator magnets, ornaments, and papier mache vase with flowers, I do offer some greeting cards at shows, but on a limited basis. So, people at retail shows won't be able to purchase prints in person.
However, I do offer prints, t-shirts, greeting cards, mugs, pillows, towels, cellphone cases and other products online year-round through my shop at Pixels.com. You can find a full listing of images and products available here.
My shop at Pixels.com is print-on-demand, so you can order directly from them one item or in bulk, whichever suits your needs. The products and prices are available as drop-down menus and should be self-explanatory, but don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions. I've had very good feedback from customers who've wanted items other than originals and purchased through this company. Having said that, Pixels does have an excellent return policy if, for some reason, what you purchase isn't what you expected.
On occasion, customers have apologized for not purchasing originals (I do sell original artwork online here, as well as at shows, if that's what you're looking for). Please know I understand budgets, space, and all the other reasons why an original piece of artwork may not fit the bill at any particular moment. People have purchased posters, cards, wall art, t-shirts and pillows with my collage images on them and I find it amazing to think of those items going into people's homes. Your support means a lot to me and I'm honored when you choose my artwork whatever form it takes.
