with some or all of these criteria.
Q. How do I establish pricing for my artwork?
A. Each artist is responsible for determining exactly
how much he is to be paid for each artwork displayed on
Art-Impact. This price is known as the net-due-to-artist. The artist is guaranteed to be paid
exactly this amount whenever a piece is sold via the Web site.
We also ask the artist to suggest a retail price for the
artwork. Art-Impact’s administration is responsible for finalizing
the retail price. This is the amount that will be displayed
on the site. The difference between the retail price displayed
and the net due to artist price is Art-Impact’s commission
for maintaining the Web site, promoting the artwork, and
conducting the sale. The artist will submit pricing to
Art-Impact using the Artwork Inventory PDF found on the
Artwork Submissions page.
Q. Are there other factors to consider when I
set prices for my artwork?
A. Yes. The artist will ship the artwork to Art-Impact, and
we will ship the artwork to the buyer. This means that each
artist is responsible for factoring into the net-due-to-artist price all packaging, shipping, and
handling charges for insuring and delivering the artwork
to Art-Impact’s facilities. Please see the documents on
the Artwork Submissions page for more details.
Q. How will I know when an artwork is sold? What
should I do next?
A. When an artwork sells, you will be immediately notified
via e-mail or phone and told which piece has been sold.
Artists should package, insure, and ship artwork to Art-Impact’s
facilities and provide tracking information within five
days of the sales notification.
Q. How will I get paid for my artwork after it
A. Art-Impact will mail a check for the net-due-to-artist price that you have provided for the
sold piece of artwork. All sales are conducted on a 100% satisfaction-guaranteed basis. Once the artwork is received in good condition
and approved by the buyer, a payment-in-full will be issued
to the artist within a net 30-day schedule. Please see
