    Question What options for online gallery where people can order prints?

    I'd like for people to be able to order nice prints of the artwork on my website.

    I'm looking for a solution where some company handles the printing and the shipping for me. And still the buyer sholdn't have to "leave" my website to much to complete the purchase.

    What options are there out there?

    All links and recomendations apriciated!

    The only printing service like that that I know about is Deviant Arts print site, but I don't think it's what you're looking for.

    Hmm, I think CafePress.com might be able to do posters also.

    Sorry, those are the only two I know of offhand.

    http://www.mpix.com is a professional printing site. cafepress has limitation on size they can offer.
    Devaint Art has a good range of sizes and papers to pick from, but they require a one time sign up fee, and they take 50% profit share.

    You can buy a 13"x19" printer (ieEpson 2200) and print your own...
    THe inks are archival, so they last a good while, and with care can last a life time...

    or you can check out

    Yup that would be a good idea. The thing is that I move around too much to be able to print myself (or to bring the printer with me everywhere). So I need to find some good printing-service.

    The site you mention "is currently offline for upgrades." but I'll check it out again later on.

    Anyone else knows any good printing-services?

    Art.com and posters.com

    Somwhere you can open an account and upload your pics. They have framming etc. But your royalties are pretty small.

    ClubPhoto is one, they offer regular photo size prints for around 15 cents ea...but offer up to poster size (don't know their costs).
    Do a web search for discount online printing. There are a few good ones out there.

    DA also now has the fine print that they can use anything you post over there, for any DA-type use in marketing, advertising, and the like, with no compensation due the artist...Soon as they start selling calendars of DA art, it will be fun to see the screaming start...
