In times of trouble, we need art more than ever. We're all stuck in our homes, staring at the same walls day in and day out. We need to wake up those walls with art.
For many artists, this is a good time to make their work available as prints. With Prints-on-Demand, we print, mat, frame and ship.
People will want new art on their walls, but in these uncertain financial times, they might be reluctant to spend large amounts on expensive original works. Museum-quality prints represent an appealing option, particularly as buyers can preview the work in their own home risk-free with augmented reality. If you don't have your work available for prints on your Artspan site, this might be the time to try. And the collector who buys a print today becomes invested in your career, to return at a time when the economy is more robust.
“The legacy will be the technology.” Evan Beard, the national art services executive at US Trust, concurs: “Social distancing and travel restrictions give auction houses, galleries and art fairs an opportunity to test digital sales strategies, such as virtual reality, and online auctions. So, the crisis may reveal lower-cost ways of doing business that will quickly become industry standard.”
At Artspsan we're ahead of the curve! We've been offering Augmented Reality for several months now, and our members are successfully using it to sell originals and prints of their work. Collectors can see your work on their walls safely and securely.
Augmented reality is already installed on your site and visible on any device with a rear-facing camera (tablets and mobile phones). To utilize Artspan Augmented Reality on your site:
- Offer your artwork for sale (POD or original)
- Choose a category from the Dropdown in your Artwork Library
- FIll in dimensions in Purchase Options (for originals)
- Click on the Enable Live Preview button
There is no better time to make your work available and affordable. If you need help setting this up on your site contact [email protected]
Wishing happiness, health, and inspiration to all of our members.
