Fine art prints are undergoing a major transformation that promises to revolutionize how working artists and photographers reproduce their work.
Today, new printing technologies like digital ink jet presses with 12-pigmented colors, and UV-inks with significantly increased durability are taking the art world by storm. Artists and photographers can now place orders for these durable, high-quality reproductions and have them beautifully laid over an assortment of cotton and canvas products.
Even better, the new generation of prints can be displayed as large, full-color graphics or as small canvas prints. You can have your reproductions cut to the perfect size for the intended use. Here, we’d like to highlight some of the advantages that come with ordering small canvas prints of your work. Check it out:
1. Tease Your Works
These days, even artists are marketers. We must showcase our work to entice new buyers and curators, and self-advertise to be heard of in the first place.
As marketing materials, small canvas prints are a convenient and cost-effective way to display a live portfolio of your major works in vivid detail without having to lug along your whole studio.
2. Target a Lower Price Point
Small prints have another critical advantage for artists who want to expand their current target market outward. They have a smaller price tag, and can thus help draw in would-be customers with a budget-friendly purchase they won’t regret.
3. Fit Art in Small Spaces
Small prints will fit most anywhere. They’re easy to hang, and tend to make a small room feel larger.
4. Provide Intimacy
Small prints have always been a popular way of expressing the more intimate qualities of a piece. The viewer can take in the whole image at once, instantly grasping the overarching message or feel without having to step back and adjust to what they are seeing.
5. Create a Series
Small prints make an artistic series easy to design, behold, and transport. Compact and space-saving, they’re ideal when you’ve got multiple segments of a piece to present and want to emphasize both their unity and individuality.
6. Give as Gifts
Small prints are the perfect size for gift-giving. Sometimes, you just don’t know if the recipient has sufficient wall space for a large canvas. And what if the piece doesn’t match their existing decorative scheme?
Smaller prints let gift-givers set such concerns aside. Small canvas prints are inherently flexible, giving the recipient more discretion to decide just where they want to place their keepsake.
