Since I joined saatchiart.com as an artist last week, I have been busy getting prepared to ship paintings. One of the reasons I chose to join Saatchi was because I love the way they require their artists to ship paintings. They require you to use certain packing materials and follow about an eight-step process to prepare art for its travels to its new home. So here it is…a photo of all of my shipping supplies, minus the boxes. Now I need a bigger studio! Someday, someday…
I ended up getting most of my materials — the foam board, bubble wrap, plastic sheeting, cardboard boxes, and packing tape from Home Depot. I purchased the glassine paper and cardboard corners from Amazon. It was a little tricky finding the foam board that was both long enough in length/width and in thickness. My friend and artist, Jaime Haney, suggested I try a hardware store, and sure enough they had what I needed.
Another reason I chose Saatchi is that they create prints on demand. I have really been wanting to get into selling prints of my work but didn’t want to carry print inventory. I have been tossing around selling prints for some time now, and I think using Saatchi for my prints is the way to go. You can even order frames with your art purchase, or order a canvas print. I love the way canvas prints look!
So the next time you are looking to fill a bare wall, try Saatchi. There are thousands of artists and artworks to choose from.
