Are you an artist who would you like us to take a look at your work? Would you like to know how to go about it? Here's what to do:
Step 1 - Getting to know you: First of all we have to get to know your art. Simply send us a photo of your work (at least 13x18cm), jpegs, slides, a CD Rom/DVD, or colour copies. In order to make it easier for us later on please ensure you also give us the title of the image and the size of the original. Send everything to:
If you have any questions you can reach us at +49 721 97806-20 or 27. Or you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. When we receive your work it will go straight to our design team who will review it. Don't worry, we know just how valuable your artwork is to you, we'll take great care of it and after we've examined it closely we'll return it to you!
Step 2 - Selection: Our Creative Team, made up of designers from different countries (Germany, France, USA, Canada and UK), uses several different criteria when choosing artwork: image, colour and genre in connection with current demand and trends etc. If we make a selection then we'd ask you to send the corresponding originals to us. Naturally you'll insure them and send them at our cost.
Step 3 - Publishing contract: After we've made the initial selection we take a look at the originals that you've sent in to us. If they meet our criteria we'll draw up a contract which includes, amongst other things, the royalty rates. You will be paid according to each piece of artwork we use. The royalty rate varies according to the size of the reproduction. Royaties will be paid twice a year in January and June.
Step 4 - Production: - The design team confirms the size of the reproduction and also selects the paper quality and the production method (offset, silkscreen, giclee). In order to achieve the most faithful reproduction and guarantee the highest possible quality, we scan your original artwork and use that artwork at every stage of the production process to compare with the reproduction. The first production run is usually between 500-1000 pieces. To comply with the high level of quality control we set ourselves, the production process takes between 6 - 8 weeks.
Step 5 - Marketing: We will present your art in our catalogue or supplements. At the same time we will work with you on putting together a summary of your art career to date (biography, with photo), which all our customers (galleries, art dealers, volume framers, poster and frame shops) will get to see. If you want, we will also include the source of supply for originals in the copyright line on the print and give a link to your personal website.
