 She wanted to package the canvas print with care– “I start with foam core larger than the piece then attach a margin of foam core strips around the edges.  Add an extra layer on the outside of cardboard.  Finish with lots of final packing tape around the outside edges,” Chris Osborne says. “Done!  Phew! I spent one and one-half hours carefully packing the limited edition artwork.”

Open Call–Reviewing Art to List For Sale On Amazon

 

Many things have changed on A-mazon.com over the years. A couple of years before art galleries expanded to selling art on Amazon, I opened the Transmedia Artist A-mazon Pro Store in July of 2011. I’ve sold dozens of prints on paper and canvas, paintings, and limited edition artist posters in my A-mazon store.  

View the Transmedia Artist A-mazon Pro Store here.

Now I’d like to revitalize the inventory of my A-mazon store by adding 100-200 more artworks.

I’m especially interested in adding artwork multiples–print editions on paper and canvas and artist’s posters. I’d also like to try some hand-painted limited edition scarves, accessories, and clothing, as well as select one-of-kind handmade items.

Send the link to your website or online portfolio for review to: mariekazalia@gmail.com

There is no fee unless your work is accepted into the Transmedia Artist Amazon store.

Once accepted you will be expected to pay a one-time fee of $10USD to cover your first five listings in the store. If you want to list ten items pay $20, fifteen items pay $30 etc. Note: One print edition is one listing (for possible multiples sales from that one listing). This token fee helps us all stay committed!

Artists provide retail prices and calculate shipping expenses for each art item listing (A-mazon allows$ 4.49 shipping per listing so that an increase in retail price is necessary to cover shipping costs). Buyers pays $4.49 shipping fee. Artists must provide one or more high-resolution jpeg image of each item(including detail views) to go on each Amazon listing.

Artists are notified when a buyers pays for an order on A-mazon and then has 3-5 business day to ship the sold item (with tracking number) sent directly to the buyer . If artists are unavailable the order may be cancelled. (I want to sign on artists who are attentive to their email and reply quickly!)

Artists receive paymen-t of 60% for each sold item 30 days after tracking confirmation verifies that the buyer has received the shipped item.  A-mazon policy allows buyers 30 days to return items.

Most common reasons for non-acceptance:

  1. item/items not suited to A-mazon sales
  2. photographs of item or items do not meet A-mazon standards
