If you have ever wondered “Should I make prints of my art?” this episode will help unpick some of the things to consider.
We’re talking reproduction giclée prints (not to be confused with the prints made by printmakers). Alice has built a good revenue stream from prints of her original paintings while Louise has not made the leap and we share our reasons and lessons.
Our conversation covers:
- the difficulty of choosing which paintings to reproduce
- the importance of good photography
- how you might find someone to help you create prints
- the challenge of keeping your print collection current
- the logistics of numbering and shipping
- how to price for profit
We also discuss the importance of knowing your ‘why’ for adding prints to the art you offer as this will help direct your decision making… And we have a suggestion for an easier way to dip your toe into the water.
