We’re Adding Artist Prints and Posters to Our Japan Store

We’ve had an Amazon store for several years with monthly sales of artist posters and prints. Now, Amazon is allowing us to list our art prints and posters in their Japan Amazon store.

We have to list each item one at a time, and it takes 24 hours before buyers can purchase the items. But we’re excited to see how our sales will increase by offering our best selling items to buyers in Japan.

#artists New Company Launches Site Spring 2015: Art Murals, Art Posters, Art On Canvas

Screen Shot 2015-04-06 at 3.26.00 PM
Cannonwalls, a Canada based company, has a website in beta phase where artists can register now here: http://1479-2443.el-alt.com/

Once you register, you will be able to submit thumbnail images of your art and designs. Upon acceptance you will then upload your large files of your images for both high quality poster art and mural size reproduction.

The official launch of Cannonwalls is a few days away. Cannonwalls will be moving their site to cannonwalls.com upon launch, and they are also working on a mobile friendly version of their site.

If you’re an artist or know of any great designers please send them to the Cannonwalls site and have then throw up as many designs as they want, the more the better, monopolize the site…I would. The more designs thrown on Cannonwalls, the better.

The new site will be focusing on peel and stick vinyl decal posters, high quality 2″ thick wrapped canvas prints and huge vinyl peel and stick wall murals to start, (they say they use the same vinyl material as FatHeads ).  Cannonwalls prints on the latest digital presses and literally sell thousands of units on Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, shop.com, shop.ca, etsy…under their J.P. London brand.

They want this to be a fun and lucrative project for artists and hassle free. They recently put a sales module in place so you can follow sales by design including the payment building. That’s key. It’s fully transparent. All sales numbers by type, money and date will be available to artists on their profile 24-7.

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
