Print Sales Sites
Posted 22 December 2003 - 03:59 PM
I plan to be launching a print for sale gallery very soon. I've quite excited. I just got a 2' X 3' print of this piece. It's framed and it looks fantastic.
I've researching many sites for print sales. I'd like to know what other sites out there have worked well for selling prints. I think most of us know about DAprints. I've not had a tremendous ammount of luck here. I know the bandwidth is really bad at times too.
I've been looking into Shutter Point. It looks pertty good so far. I'm going to contact some of the folks on there to get some opinions.
Mark have you thought about adding the ability to sell one's work on Photographyblog.com? Perhaps this was discussed before and I've not seen that post... just thought I'd ask.
Thanks everyone for your feedback. Have a great holiday season!

Personally speaking, I take and process orders for my own work. I wouldn't like to use a thrid-party print service and not check the photos before they were sent to the client! What if they were rubbish and the client was the first person to see them? I've going down the route of buying an archival photo printer and producing the prints myself...

That's an excellent point. I see what you mean. The only reason I'm thinking of using an external site to sell prints is the traffic. More traffic would mean a higher chance of someone seeing your work. I guess that was the driving force behind my research. I completely agree with the personal touch in the print process. As always, you've provided great advice and given me much to think about.

I also offer my prints matted so that they are ready to pop into a frame - I doubt if the company that you choose would offer this service. And I also sign the back of each print too
