As an artist with other jobs, it’s challenging for me to keep a plentiful inventory of art prints, let alone keep that stock in numerous locations. That’s when I found Fine Art America, an online retailer and printer of artist reproductions. Fine Art America has a venue for you to upload your high quality images so that art lovers can buy these as prints on rag paper, photo paper, giclee’s on canvas, on greeting cards, with frames… you name it. You set it up, you do some promo, they print it, sell it, take a percentage, and give you the money.
However, as good as it sounds, it takes some time to get people to find your page and make a purchase. Knowing this, Fine Art America has created a handful of ways you can promote your work. One of my favorites is their Facebook Shopping Cart. After you create an artist profile AND a Facebook account, viewers can access and buy your art reproductions all from a tab called “Shop” on your Facebook page without even leaving Facebook.
