Recently my local art supply institution, Opus, a pretty great organization who has cornered the British Columbia market, started offering high-quality digital prints on a variety of substrates. Last week I spent at least half an hour working with them in order to produce just five prints. Granted, I was test driving the system/product as I don't usually offer fine art prints and wanted to try a variety of images, sizes and papers, but already I was sold by the attention to detail. Today I picked up the results and was blown away by the quality.
I haven't yet decided how I want to proceed. Etsy shop? Big Cartel? A page on my website? All? None? I am committed to producing original art, but am also curious about the market for reproductions. Also, I wanted to try selling my photos, particularly my urban photos. I have offered two of them in my long-dormant-but-now-resucitated Etsy shop.
I may decide that I only want to offer photos, but in the meantime I have these three beautifully-reproduced art prints staring me in the face. What to do?
