Artist Guide to How to Sell Your Art
Being an artist is one of the most fulfilling jobs in the world for someone who has a passion for creativity and art. Being able to wake up in the morning, work on the projects that you’re most passionate about, and be able to pay some, if not all, of your bills, just based on the fact that you create things that people love, is incredible. Beyond that, the satisfaction and joy that comes with people buying the things that you created are some of the most fulfilling things in this life. When the creation of art is your passion, the sharing of your own art becomes your pride and joy.
What Canvas Cultures Does
The one thing that is difficult about achieving the goal of becoming an artist is the fact that, quite frankly, selling your art on your own is really difficult. It’s easy to get some of your friends and family to buy pieces that you make, but after that, where do you go? How are you supposed to make money after that?
There are a handful of online stores and marketplaces where you can go that are varying degrees of complex and difficult to work with. And even if you find a little bit of footing on there, you need to bring your own supplies, your own marketing, your own money and capital, and your own hours. After a while, your job as an artist that you used to be so passionate about becomes bogged down by having to deal with a million different business expenditures, working with supply chains, and spending hours every day just trying to do simple things, none of which you signed up for.
That’s where Canvas Cultures comes in. We are a company of artists passionate about bringing your art to life in a simple, easy, and exciting way! We’ve been where many artists are today, working in dreary nine-to-five jobs, dreaming of even just a couple of days away from a boring system where we feel like we’re wasting away into a creative abyss. But after a while, we looked at the problems we saw and decided that we would do something about it, not just for our sake, but for everyone else as well! Canvas Cultures is our passion come true, empowering artists worldwide.
Canvas Culture's Manufacturing
If you’re going to be working with virtually any other company, you’re going to need to do all of the groundwork on your own. That either means hours upon hours of painstakingly recreating every piece of art that someone buys or outsourcing production to another company whose main goal is to take as much profit they can from you. And with those companies, getting something that’s going to be affordable means that it’s going to be low quality, leaving both you and your customers unsatisfied. It’s like getting stuck between a rock and a hard place; there’s no solution where you really feel like you come out on top. That’s where Canvas Cultures comes in!
Here, we take care of the manufacturing in-house. Our standard materials are of the highest grade; we use incredibly high-quality ink, durable and sustainable wood, and virtually perfect finishes on everything we make. All of our products are made out of museum-quality materials, which is important to galleries, households, and art shows.
At Canvas Cultures, we don’t cut any corners in trying to make the highest quality canvases in the world. But since our manufacturing is done in-house, we don’t have to worry about excessive costs.
Our system cuts out the middleman, meaning that anyone can come in and create the art that matters the most to them in a way that puts the artist in a place where they can win as much as the manufacturing company. Gone are the days of artists being ripped off by art manufacturers that don’t care about them; here at Canvas Cultures, you and your art matter and are our highest priority!
Canvas Culture's Business Model
Another huge problem with most other places is the fact that if you’re going to be working entirely on your own, you’re going to have to take care of all of the tasks that come along with owning a small business. That’s a lot of work, especially if you’re not built for that kind of stuff. It means hours upon hours every week ordering products, dealing with customers, advertising, dealing with whatever system you’re using, and managing your own inventory. Some sources say that owning and operating a small business can take over 50 hours every week! After all of that work, there’s hardly any time to actually be an artist.
That’s where Canvas Cultures comes in again! As a small business ourselves, we take care of the marketing and media, the customer service, the inventory, and all the smaller, uninteresting nitty-gritty details that go along with running a business. We want to provide your art a place to grow without throwing out your creative passion along the way.
Another massive benefit is that with Canvas Cultures, you don’t need to worry about all the risk that comes with starting a business. You don’t need to worry about selling all of your inventory in a certain amount of time or else taking a massive loss in profits. Since we handle all of those problems, you don’t need to worry about going into the red and hoping that you make it out. We take care of you and your money, just like if it were ours.
The best part is that once your art is on our platform, you don’t need to worry about anything else! Our system provides artists with residual incomes every month from their art on the website. All you have to do is keep on making art that blows everyone away, and we take care of the rest!
Canvas Culture’s Reach
A huge struggle with many artists is getting your art out in the world and in front of the right people. It’s one of the hardest things to do; it usually means advertising, consistent social media posting, and sometimes, just a massive amount of luck. You can create all the best art in the world, but if not enough people see it and buy it, then you won’t be able to truly tap into that source of income, and you won’t be able to make a living off of your art.
We see those artists, and we present the outreach. We provide a platform where artists can upload their work and then watch as their work is displayed before hundreds of thousands of people and potential buyers! We pick up artists with the greatest potential and skill and take care of all of the outreach for them. It’s an incredible system, and it gives artists the opportunity to be seen by people all around the world that may have never even known that they or their art existed. It’s one of the modern marvels of the world, and it seriously changes the game for any artist out there.
There has never been a better platform for visual artists than Canvas Cultures. We care for artists and help them make money off of doing what they love more than anything else in the world. It’s our passion to empower creators to do what they’re good at because people like them help us do what we’re good at! It’s a mutually beneficial relationship that results in a massive win for everyone involved. Working together, we can create a world that is more beautiful and beneficial than it was yesterday.
And the best thing is, you just have to make what you’re passionate about. We have several categories of art, ranging from Abstract artwork, Motivational designs, Spiritual reminders, and countless other options. Whatever you make, we want to provide a place for you to succeed. That is our highest priority, and we want you to be a part of it! So get your favorite art pieces together, and send them to us at:
Your art can be the next thing that changes the world, whether it's your own world through some additional income or the life of someone who might have never even met you. That’s the beauty of online selling and our platform; we provide the connections that both sides of the buying world need. We love working with as many talented artists as possible, so take a look around our website, and hopefully, this is the best home for your art; we sure think it is!
