For Artists and Photographers they will be happy to know that Johnson's Fine Art will be opening on the Internet soon at http://johnsonsart.com The company, owned by Jason Johnson, will specialize in fine art gallery canvas prints and large gallery mounted prints only. This gives experienced and new artists and photographers a great new venue for their works.
There is no monthly fee for the service, or ongoing fees of any kind, the artist or photographer actually has a sellers page to put their bio, works and even a link to their home page if they desire. Jason would prefer that the artists create their own page, but he does employ Tag Craig of http://am-nuke.net as web master for this gigantic project. There is no charge if the artist/photographer creates their home page.
All prints on the site come either in gallery canvas or mounted prints. Each piece comes with a free gallery style frame for canvas, or outstanding frame or mounted gallery frame. In most cases the buyer has the choice of free frames and in some cases the authors and photographers want the finished product to look as how they know it should look. Either way, the buyer of the print has choices and freebies. After all how many Art Galleries include a $100- $300 frame free with a purchase?
The artist can choose what sizes they want their work to be available in as well as the pricing. Most pieces on the site that I have seen, so far, range from $459.00 to over $2500 (usd) depending upon the size. The artist gives their price for the smallest canvas or mounted print, and the other sizes are calculated from that.
Although I did not see an affiliate program as yet, you may want to keep in mind that most affiliate programs give about 15% of the cost. Keep that in mind when setting your price. I am sure the site will have an affiliate program before they open.
This is a great opportunity for the advanced hobbyist to professional photographer to earn their keep and a natural resource for any starving artist to supplement their income. The site will require the actual scanned 4x6 at 300-1200dpi (@ 1222% for 30x40) or better print for testing to see what the maximum size can be. Of course if you have an 11x14 print your scan will be less. They will also need a 300 pixel wide thumbnail that Johnson's Art will watermark to keep folks from reprinting. Although they are still setting up, you can get a sneak preview.
To get your work listed and for the details, you can contact the web master: tag AT am-nuke.net he will have some of the questions I stated here for you and will set up each piece of your work exactly how you want it. The site is scheduled to open December first, but like most major sites that is an approximate date but as you can see the news is already going out and will probably have several major links before it even opens.
