Barney Davey con How to Price Digital Fine Art Prints (English Edition)Learning how to price art prints is a significant challenge for visual artists. Since no accepted standards exist for pricing giclées, the industry term for digital fine art print reproductions, artists are left to costly trial and error methods. How to Price Digital Fine Art Prints, a new e-book by art print industry veteran, Barney Davey, fills the gap.
Experience shows artists informed with differing perspectives have a competitive advantage in developing effective pricing strategies. To help his readers, Davey chose top art marketing professionals with varied backgrounds to answer puzzling art print pricing questions.
Barry Glustoff, a leading digital fine art printmaker, and founder of Digital Arts Studio, says, “This e-book is a great resource. Any visual artist can use it to discover how to competitively price fine art giclée prints.”
This e-book is a one-of-a-kind reference for pricing digital fine art reproductions. It addresses thirty critical giclée pricing and art print marketing questions, including these:
•Is pricing by the square inch the best method?
•Are there other effective ways art to price prints besides per square inch?
•How important is consistency in pricing art prints across different distribution channels, such as galleries, websites and selling direct?
•Should pricing for sale through galleries and dealers always be considered? In other words, if an artist is not in a gallery now, should her art prices include the markup to galleries? Or, only if there are plans to include galleries for distribution.
