I was recently invited by a health spa here on Maui to display and sell some of my work at their office. While I haven’t done this in the past, I have several friends here who have done this type of display and have even sold many canvas prints in this manner. They will go to a doctors office, gym, store or other location and agree with the vendor to display their work, along with their contact info, title of the work, as well as a price. These canvases are then displayed in a high traffic area, and if it is high quality work, they eventually sell. I know of one photographer who sold a single canvas for over $600 at a Whole Foods.
Being that I have this opportunity, I had been looking to print up some massively huge canvasses of my favorite shots for my display. I have tried several companies in the past, but the problem was that their canvas prints were cost prohibitive- there would simply be no way to make any profit after all the expense (and hassle), so the key to making this type of idea work is that the canvases have to be reasonable quality and at the same time affordable.
Enter CG Pro Prints, who contacted me directly and invited me to try their products. There were a few things I really liked in their offerings:
1. 100% Money back Guarantee
2. Ginormous Prints at a VERY reasonable cost
Check it out, a single 24″ x 36″ canvas print was just under $70. At that cost, I had to check it out and ended up ordering 2, One of my “Maui Super Moon” and the other of “The Grail” from the Louve in Paris. I bought a metallic maker set and signed the bottom righthand corners. Everyone who has seen them has commented on them immediately.
The quality is as good or better than anything I have seen anywhere else, but because they were so reasonably priced, I will go on record to say this is an excellent value and definitely worth looking into if you are in the market for some canvas prints for yourself as well as your customers. They have many, many sizes to choose from.
We are also thankful to CG Pro Prints for offering to sponsor one of our many upcoming contests.
Check them out when you get a chance!
