As previously announced, over the last few weeks we have published a lot of innovations. All of the improvements are in pursuit of the goal of increasing the attractiveness of our Artflakes marketplace to our customers and thus to substantially increase your sales! But let’s go in order.
We have expanded the size categories to include 4XL. This group includes the following individual sizes:
180x135cm; 180x120cm; 140x140cm; 200x100cm; and 260x85cm
The system automatically detects the resolution of individual motifs and offers this new format if the minimum resolution is met. Your sales will, of course, grow as the image size grows. Therefore, please upload as many high-resolution motifs as possible in the future.
The postcard is now our new entry-level product. They are available individually or in packs of 6 or 12 cards. The familiar folding card is still available, of course.
The Premium Poster (paper weight 250g/m2) has been joined by a poster with 190g/m2 paper weight. The difference between the Poster and Premium Poster is also that the Poster is printed on the entire surface, while the Premium Poster has a 5mm white edge all around. The peripheral edge and the very high quality paper mean that the Premium Poster can be framed as an art print itself after the fact.
Two new Gallery Prints have also been added, which provide you with a truly unique selling point. In addition to the acrylic glass direct print and aluminum matte direct print option that are currently available, there are now:
– Aluminum, silver metallic (brushed)
– Direct print on plastic
These new products are, of course, also available in the new 4XL large format.
We have recalculated our base prices for production, shipping, support, and the platform. We now have very inexpensive entry-level products, and the large formats and special finish versions are leading the market. This new calculation has been made possible by an expansion of our production. If the new calculation has a positive effect on sales of your images, it will become our new, everyday low price.
Tip: the new platform (coming by the end of 2017) will enable any motif to be ordered in any style. Until then, simply use our file upload at www.fineart-factory.com and write Artflakes artist in the comment field. With a base discount of 5%, Artflakers benefit from very good value for the price. We ship worldwide.
The adjustment to the maximum markup has now been implemented. Sales of images with a markup of over 50% were paused and they can now be adjusted one time by the affected artists. They will then be available for sale again immediately.
After the adjustment, this function will not be visible again at first. When the new artist backend is launched, this function will be available in stages for all accounts.
ARTFLAKES is on the way to becoming the most attractive marketplace for art prints with worldwide shipping. The production facility in Austin, Texas, handles manufacturing and shipping for the US and Canadian markets.
To make these many sales improvement measures a success for yourself, too, please follow our marketing tips (https://www.artflakes.com/blog/de/2017-02/kannst-du-fuer-besonders-viele-verkaeufe-tun/) and advertise diligently for your galleries on social media and among your friends, whether artists or customers.
