This means that all the final data that went into creating your edition (the digital file that we received or created from your work along with any color-correcting information, ink saturation, the size of your prints, the substrate you chose, etc.) is saved on a CD or DVD (depending on the size) and stored in our CD vault. This ensures that whether you’ve ordered a limited or open edition, we can ensure that all future reprints will maintain their beauty and consistency.
• A Complimentary Service for Those Doing Their Printing with Us
• Frees Up Your Own Storage Space
• Enables You to Utilize Our Other Services
Editions archiving of prints is another service we’ve recently made available to our Editions Clients, having completed construction of an impeccable storage space. Our facility is secured with carefully managed building access and closed circuit observation equipment, so your artwork is safe with us.
Designed to maintain the integrity of your prints and make life easier for you, storing your work with us is a wonderful option when:
- You have limited storage space of your own, for your work
- You plan on having your work matted and framed by us
- You plan to take advantage of our order fulfillment services, having us ship your professionally finished work directly to clients, as you receive orders
Currently, editions archiving is complimentary for those who are doing their printing with us. For other clients, there will be a small fee, which will vary based on the scope of the necessary storage. Your Editions Consultant will be able to answer any questions you might have about this service.
Matting, Framing & Finishing
• An Added Benefit to Your Clients
• A Service that is a Source of Profit for You
Matting, framing and professional finishing have been the core of our business for 40 years. We’re delighted to have them accompany your printing of editions with us, meeting all your needs under one roof – from printing to framing and fulfillment – and making your business life a whole lot easier.
Your clients will appreciate the ability to do their framing with you, and you'll benefit from an additional profit center that lends an even more polished air to your final presentations.
Professional finishing costs vary by size and scope of the project at-hand. Simply, contact our Sr. Editions Consultant to find out about professional finishing of your prints – and how you can spend more time creating and less time on the business of art.
Benefit from Our Experience
Our order fulfillment services take advantage of our 40 years in business, as a direct marketing company. We have decades of expertise in packaging and shipping artwork and picture framing materials, and have made our skills available to our visual arts clients who would rather spend their time creating, than doing it themselves, or feeling like they need to worry about someone else doing it for them, who might not have the breadth of our experience. And, our order fulfillment services include anything from shipping out professionally finished works of art (work that’s been matted and/or framed), one at a time, as you receive orders… to sending your work, in large quantity, to a gallery, representative, or other outlet where your work is being sold… to anything in-between.
Central Location for Quick Shipping Times and Low Rates
We are centrally located in the Piedmont Triad Region of North Carolina, within Zone 4, which contains approximately 65% of the U.S. population. Being based here makes for timely, efficient and cost-effective distribution of your artwork. And we pass extra savings on to you through the favorable shipping rates we’ve negotiated with the major carriers.
Hands-Free Order Processing
Depending on your volume and needs, we’ll not only store and maintain inventory of your artwork, but we’ll receive your orders, mat, frame and ship your work, directly to you, your representatives, or your clients. We’ll also gracefully and efficiently handle returns, should they arise.
Your Own Branding on all Packaging
All packaging can bear your branding, for a seamless image. We can even apply UPC and custom labeling to your products and design custom packaging solutions for unique needs.
Order processing, editions archiving and direct shipping are all under one roof. That means you get to reap the benefits of our efficiency, effectiveness and responsiveness, leaving you more time to do what you love most – capture and create remarkable images.
Speak to a member of our Editions Consulting Team, and they will strategize with you to come up with a customized fulfillment program that can meet your unique needs.
• There's Even More Available than You Might Have Imagined
• Another Way to Exceed Your Expectations and Delight Your Clients
We want to ensure that our Editions service exceeds your expectations and that we support even greater success for you as an artist or photographer.
So, if there is any item you’d like us to use in the process of creating or professionally finishing your edition, we’ll happily look into acquiring it for you, whether it’s a printing surface that isn’t one of the ones we currently offer, or any other finishing material (rag mats in unusual colors, hinges, fillets, v-grooves, etc.).
Costs for these items will vary, depending on your exact request and their cost to us, and will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
Flexibility and a Range of Options Based on Your Needs and Budget
We have an array of web solutions, from the simple to the sophisticated and at a host of different price points to meet your needs and budget. Whether you want to show your clients virtual matting and framing presentations for your work, applying your own prices, seek a full online gallery for selling your originals and editions, or want anything in-between, we’re sure to have the perfect solution.
