We’ve got some big news to share and a few things to clarify to make your art hunting ever-so-enjoyable. But first, pat yourself on the back for being original and buying original. Bare walls and boring sameness should be banned, and we’re glad that so many of you agree! Thanks to those of you who have loved a piece from the ARTtwo50 collection and made it a new (awesome) part of your happy life, we were able to learn a ton and make some changes that will better suit artists and art buyers alike. So whether you’re the one with paint permanently staining your fingertips or the person staring at that design-dilemma of a blank wall, listen up!
The important stuff…
For starters, we’ve done our research, we promise. And along the way we’ve found that many artists find the $100 price perfect for some of their works, and $250 suitable for others. Yet, both levels are still comfortable for a beginning art buyer, like someone who wants to begin to build their collection or decorate their home without buyers’ remorse.
Also, there’s no arbitrary pricing. If an artist is selling artwork at the $500 price point, then there’s good reason. This likely means that a handful of people have bought pieces from this artist and have had overwhelmingly positive results. It’s like friends you haven’t even met are giving you the thumbs up – “Go for it, this art is worth it and needs to be hanging out in your space.”
Plus, we want our artists to grow and keep creating. With the money earned from a single $250 sale, an artist is able to purchase four canvases, five paint brushes, and six tubes of paint…leading to $2000 in future revenue. Now imagine what that means at $500…we’re guessing about double.
Our transparent pricing model has recently expanded and there are a few key points:
- All artists may begin to sell their work priced at either $100, $250, or both! (When you find a beauty for $100, we’re not April fool-ing you, it’s real life.)
- Once an artist sells a total of $1000 (in any combination), they can begin to sell works art for $500.
- However, when an artist has reached the $500 price point, they can still list art at all $100 and $250.
- Artists always receive 80% of the sale, and we cover shipping!
We’ve begun to shake up the art world thanks to your fantastic taste and revolutionary like-mindedness, but we plan on growing even more. In the future, look forward to more pricing options, always without the anxiety of deciding exactly what the price tag should read.
Remember, we don’t choose when artists unlock a new price point — you do! So now more than ever, just be original. Buy what you like and what feels right for you and your space.
You can check out all of our works for sale through our carefully crafted Pinterest Boards or get recommendations and visualize the art on your wall in the ARTtwo50 iPad app. Either way, keep keeping the original alive.
Here are some works from each price tier to help you get an idea of what each one might look like:
