We offer print-ready digital art files, custom-prepared at the size you specify. In this HELP section find answers to your most common questions.
How does art-licensing work?
We provide you with the print-ready digital art files, and you have everything printed at your preferred fine-art print-vendor, on the substrate you choose. Printing, framing and installation happens locally, near your project-property.
What usage rights does a purchase of an art-license provide?
We charge for the one-time use of the digital file, based on the size at which it gets executed. Different sizes command different prices. We can also offer you rights to multiple uses of the same art-file. Simply state the size and quantity at which the art will be reproduced.
What is an art-reproduction agreement?
It is a contract between the artist, and/or their agent and/or the art platform that represents the artist and the buyer of the art-license, which stipulates the rights to print a given art-file.
How will you send me the print-ready art-file?
We provide print-ready digital files to you, at the size you specify, via HiDrive or WeTransfer. We can also upload art-files to a print-studio location of a client or their trusted fine-art print-vendor.
How often can I use the print-ready art-file?
We charge for the one-time use of the digital file, based on the size it gets executed at. If you want to print the artwork multiple times, please specify the quantity. We will reflect that I the art-licensing agreement and provide pricing accordingly.
On which types of substrates / materials has your art been printed?
Our art has been printed on canvas, paper, metal / alu dibond, glass, acrylic / plexi, film, wood. Each material will create a unique look. Ask your trusted fine-art print-vendor which materials they offer, and what their maximum print-sizes are.
Does the art show an artist-signature?
We will deliver print-ready digital data of the art, at your specified size, and with a delicate artist signature placed, unless you tell us you want a no-name piece.
Do you have experience with providing large-format data for art?
Yes. We have been dealing with the subject of large-format reproductions for many years and have developed a technique by which we can render works of art reproducible even for very large formats in high quality. Edge lengths of up to 19 ft. (6 m) are possible. Some artworks can be printed even larger.
Do you ship finished, framed, large art-prints?
We work with clients globally. To address the time and cost aspect of shipping finished art across long distances, we provide art-licenses, the right to receive and print digital art-files. Our clients acquire a license to reproduce the artwork in the desired format and quantity. Clients have the image printed and framed locally by the fine-art print vendor of their choice.
I have a client presentation. Can I copy an image from your website?
If you want to pitch our art for your client’s interiors-project: You can copy a small jpeg, to use the image for a client-presentation, or sales-call. Please check with us prior to using any art for your own marketing purposes on any media (website, newsletter, social media, print-media, etc.)
I need to see the full-resolution quality of the art-file before I purchase. Is this possible?
Yes. Once you have narrowed down your selection on the piece you’d like to purchase, we can provide you a small section of that art-file, in full-resolution, so you can view it on screen, or do a test-print of that section.
How Do you accept payment?
Simply put a check in the mail or initiate a bank transfer. At this point we are not accepting credit-card payments.
I am located outside of the USA, can you provide art for my building?
Yes. Simply tell us the images and sizes you are considering for your project, and we will provide you a price-quote for art-licensing. We deliver the print-ready art data to your or your preferred fine-art printer, in your country.
I need art in a specific, non-standard format for my space. Can you help?
Yes. Simply tell us the images and sizes you are considering for your project, and we will provide you a price-quote and a crop-suggestion for art-licensing per your specification. Or you can copy the small jpeg you see in our online art-gallery and create the crop you like. We will then prepare the print-ready data following your crop-instructions.
I'll print the art on canvas and need bleed / tolerance. Can you help?
Yes. Simply state the size of the “frontal view” (finished size) and separately the “bleed”. It should be a bit more than the thickness/depth of the internal stretcher bar around which the printed canvas gets wrapped. Your printer/framer will know these measurements.
Do you show a maximum recommended print-size for your art?
Yes. As the last letter of each alphanumeric artwork name you will find XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL. These refer to the maximum sizes we recommend at which a specific piece gets printed (always the longer side, it could be the width or height). These max-sizes refer to print on paper, metal, glass/film. On canvas you can print a bit larger, as the texture of the fabric will make the design look slightly looser anyways. . If you don’t see a size-indicator simply ask. XS = 1 meter = 39.37 inches = 3.28 feet S = 2 meters = 78.74 inches = 6.56 feet M = 4 meters = 157.48 inches = 13.12 feet L = 6 meters = 236.22 inches = 19.68 feet XL = 8 meters = 314.96 inches = 26.24 feet XXL = 12 meters = 472.44 inches = 39.37 feet XXXL = 16 meters = 630 inches = 52 feet
