For awhile after I get my scanner I will not be able to afford a nice printer.
So. Those of you who sell prints & other merchandise, do you go through websites like dA, Fine Art America, Society 6, Red Bubble? Or dedicated printing services like PictureFrames.com?
I really hate the low commission artists get from "markup" prices.
dA's base value prices are good, but the markup prices are locked and too low.
They make more money off your art than you do. :/
Fine Art America seemed like a good middle ground, but then I read davidewilkinson.com/fine-art-a… and decided Fine Art America might not be all that great...
The thumbnails are too big, watermarks are too small and out of the way, = easy theft.
The comments section in that link there was a few mentions of the website selling artist's work on Amazon without permission, and artists not getting paid after sales.
And fighting with the website to get your art taken down. Poor customer service, etc.
What have you tried? How well does it work for you?
