I have been looking for an art print site for awhile now. I tried a few of the photographic sites like winkflash, but it is catered more to the photography side than it is to the artists. I still like winkflash the best for photography, but ImageKind has been my newest addition of services that I just really like. I think it’s the frames.
When you display artwork, you can get really picky with colors and making sure that the mat colors work for the art itself. Taking the picture of the art isn’t usually a big deal, but finding a place that will print a good quality print of your work can be a chore.
I only recently became acquainted with ImageKind after visiting another artist’s site. It seems a great way to earn a little money through your artwork by just selling the prints. registration is free. They even provide framing for the customer if they choose to go ahead and have the print framed. I do not have the money yet to review the framing part of what they do, but I am pleased with the way that ImageKind makes my artwork look like framed. Framing is generally more expensive than the print itself, and ImageKind is no different here.
The turn around on setting up a public gallery was fairly quick as well. I was also suspired by the number of artists already using this great tool. For you other artist bloggers, they do provide some great little tools to promote on your own website as well. The only downside was having to have 3 initial works uploaded in order to open a public gallery. Here is my “Fall Colors” painting on ImageKind – Just click the picture to go to my online gallery at ImageKind. If you have used this service, let me know your thoughts too. I am curious about the turnaround time from purchase to arriving at my door with glass and frame intact.
