Art SALE!

Curious if anyone has made any sales on AW so far this year? Feel free to boast about it, here. My number of sales so far this year is zero, hoping that improves :)

I have not had any direct sales from here. However, I have had people contact me because I have my AW link on my business card. This site has been used mainly as my personal art gallery storage facility.

No, I have not sold anything on Artwanted and consider it just a Share Site sharing images or artwork or paintings. If I can say something that will cheer up another artist or photographer, I will. I haven't added any art for a long time, although I have some to share. Just not motivated, I guess. As for money, many talented artists have died poor and struggling and the collectors and dealers made the profit many years later. That's life.

Good to know you’re driving traffic to AW, Cheryl! Let’s hope you get some sales here too!

Hi Linda, AW is a nice site to show and share your work on, I agree. There are so many artists who do make money from their artwork, I guess it really depends on the individual and if they treat their art as a hobby or a business. Interesting discussion, tho!

Best sales for me had always been live in person because printing can’t show effects and texture.

I hope more artists wil find opportunities or create them to show original work rather than trying to rely on print sales.

Art Fair Insiders offer opportunities to show as well as local art fairs.

Hi Vincent, during Covid, artists had no choice but to rely on print on demand sites like AW for sales. Looks like most of us are getting back to art fairs and markets this year, thank goodness. I do agree that selling original artwork in person is better than selling online, I totally get that.

Zero!

Only if self-sales count! Needed a new cell phone cover, so I thought I would give AW a try. We'll see. MAL

Please keep us updated. I would like to know about the quality. And if they take "forever" to ship like Fine Art America.

That's excellent, Mark, keep us posted for sure!

Brian, I'm curious, are you saying zero sales from the moment you joined AW or just this year so far?

On phone case: Ordered on 5/26, expected delivery 6/03.

Will post pic and review later today, or tomorrow.

USPS at it, again! Delivery off by a (?) day. Hope to have pix and review up by Saturday p.m. MAL

Case arrived a day late - thanks to USPS, not AW. Case fits tightly with plenty of clearance to access the buttons and ports. Color and image reproduction is impressive. I would say a great deal with the AW discount.

Cheers, MAL

Wow, that looks amazing, MAL! Thanks for keeping us posted. Its a good price and the artwork looks awesome on the phone case!

Cheryl Garman-Andrade 05 Jun 2021
