Mobile Prints Introduces Product Menus

June 4th, 2012

Example: Lost River Mountains by Leland Howard
Have you ever been at an art fair or tradeshow and wanted to be able to hand a prospective buyer a "menu" for your artwork?   Something that shows all of your available sizes, prices, and ordering information...
Now you can!   On each artwork page on Mobile Prints, there is a new link underneath the main image that looks like this:
If you click on the link, a PDF document will open up and show you an ordering menu for that image.
Here are some examples:
Artwork Menu #1
Artwork Menu #2
Artwork Menu #3
You can print the PDF documents using your home printer, take them to your local print shop (e.g. FedEx Kinkos) for a more professional look, or just e-mail them directly to prospective buyers.
If you assemble a few individual PDFs together... you've got your own ordering catalog!
These PDFs are designed to help you advertise your artwork to prospective buyers and encourage them to browse and purchase your artwork online.
There's no better way to quickly and easily show your buyers what you have to offer.

May 15, 2012

Sydney Icon by Sheila Smart
The image on the left shows Sheila Smart's photograph of the Sydney Opera House as it would appear as a stretched canvas.
Stretched canvases have become very popular on Mobile Prints.   In order to help members sell their artwork in this configuration, we have just released a new feature which can automatically display any flat image as a beautifully stretched canvas.   Here is another example.
While viewing a stretched canvas, you can choose from four different wrap styles (black border, white border, mirrored image border, or museum wrap), and the image will automatically update to reflect your selection!
To view your artwork as a stretched canvas, simply visit one of your artwork pages and click on the link that says "Canvas Print".
There is simply no better way to "try before you buy" and encourage visitors to purchase your prints!

Member Groups

May 14th, 2012

Members can now create their own groups!   Each group is moderated by its creator and has its own:

artwork pages

discussion pages


activity pages

and more!

This is the simplest way to share artwork and ideas with like-minded Mobile Prints members.   Join one of the existing groups or create your own!

It seems to be quite popular to discuss "who is selling" and "what is selling" on   Our discussion pages are always active with posts regarding those two topics.   In response to this persistent curiousity, we've created a new page which displays a partial list of recently sold prints!
The page is located here and can be accessed anytime by clicking on Artwork -> Recently Sold Print in our navigation menu.   
The page will display a random selection of prints which have sold within the past month.   We will only be showing prints which have NOT been purchased by their owner.   You can see where the artwork was purchase from and how the buyer configured the purchase (i.e. paper vs. canvas, frame, mat, etc.).   
This is a great way to get a glimpse of what's selling and, should you chose to contact them, to learn from the artists that are having sales success!
