    New Print Program Upgrades - March 2016
    03/01/2016

    We are excited to announced several BIG upgrades to our print-on-demand program! This program is included with the ArtWanted.com Premium membership. We have listened to artist and customer feedback and these changes are a direct result of your input. Check out these amazing updates...

    1) REAL TIME PRODUCT PREVIEWS – When purchasing any print product, our customers will now be given a real-time preview of how that print/product will look when delivered. No more surprises or guessing on what parts of the image may fall outside of the print area. What you see on screen is what you’ll will get and it’s a beautiful thing. Seeing is believing!

    2) LIVE IMAGE ADJUSTMENTS – Our print preview system also allows you to make adjustments to the image before adding it to your cart. These adjustments include re-positioning the image to fit better inside the printable area, zooming into an image to crop out any unwanted areas and even change the tint to black & white or sepia tone. Take control!

    3) NEW PRODUCTS – We have added over 20 new products to our lineup. Some of these new products include: Custom iPad cases, additional phone cases, laptop skins, clocks, magnets and stickers. In fact, we are going to add at least one new product every month in 2016. More is better!

    4) TYPE MESSAGES INSIDE YOUR CARDS – We offer a handful of cards with our print program. You now have the option to type a message on the inside of the cards before they are printed. Say it with words!

    5) FASTER PRINTING & SHIPPING – You wanted your products faster, we listened. We looked at each step in our fulfillment process and made changes to get your products into your hands even faster. This also includes improved communication throughout the whole process. Speedy Delivery!

    These upgrades are now available to all existing and new Premium Members using the print program. Learn More

    To celebrate our new print program, we will be giving away FREE print products all week long on our Facebook page. If you don't already like us on Facebook, now would be a good time to do that.

    We know that our customers are going to love these new upgrades and so will you. We invite you to try out our new shopping experience and give us your feedback. Thanks!

    No Longer Accepting PayPal Payments
    06/26/2014

    Due to the increasing number of art scams and fraudulent/fake payments we have been seeing through PayPal members, ArtWanted.com has made the decision to no longer accept PayPal payments through our website.

    Please take note of how this may affect you:

      1) Premium Members – If you have an ArtWanted.com Premium Membership that is paid through PayPal, you will need to renew your membership using a credit card or mail in a check to enjoy your continued subscription. Renew Here

      2) Commission Payments – If you have sold artwork through ArtWanted.com and earn a commission, this will be paid to you by US check or can be used to purchase any ArtWanted.com products or services.

      3) Selling Artwork – If you have your own PayPal account, this change will not impact you. Interested buyers will be redirected to your own PayPal account for payment. You will receive the purchase receipt and money directly from PayPal and can ship out the artwork purchased. No commission fees are charged by ArtWanted.com when your PayPal account is used as the merchant account.

      If you have not put your PayPal e-mail address into your ArtWanted.com profile, potential buyers will be directed to e-mail you for purchase options. We will no longer accept payment for the artwork that you are fulfilling on your own. Add your PayPal e-mail to your profile if you have not already done so.

      4) Print Program – If you are a Premium Member using our "print on demand" program, all your artwork prints are still available for purchase using a credit card. You will be paid your sales commissions through a US check or ArtWanted.com bank account credit.

    We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause some of you. It’s our desire to protect our members from fraud and scams as much as possible and we feel that this decision will help with this effort. Thank You.

    On a related note, we have seen a big increase in art scammers contacting our members. We stop a lot of these e-mails from going through, but some do slip through. Please be very cautious of "buyers" that want to work out payment directly with you instead of using a credit card for purchase.

    If you suspect an art scam, or have any questions about our PayPal changes, please contact us.

    Pinterest Pinners Wanted!
    01/18/2013

    ArtWanted.com is always looking for ways to bring more exposure and visitors to the members of our site. With the recent popularity of Pinterest, we wanted to use this site to help promote the artists and artwork of our members even more.

    We are looking for a handful of members that would like to regularly "pin" artwork found on ArtWanted.com on to the new ArtWanted.com Pinterest Page. When you pin art that you like on a board, that artwork is viewable and searchable for all the millions of members of Pinterest.com. Be warned, it's addicting!

    HOW DOES IT WORK?

    If accepted, we will authorize your Pinterest account to post images to the official ArtWanted.com pin boards. As you browse the pages & portfolios found on ArtWanted.com, you will simply click the Pinterest icon to post your favorite images to the ArtWanted.com Pinterest boards. It only takes a few seconds to pin an image that you want to share.

    WHAT IS REQUIRED?

    As part of our official "pinners" group, we just ask that you pin at least 15 images per week to our boards. This can be all done on a single day, or spread throughout the week. Pin as much artwork as you like, including your own art. Every pin is another advertisement for the artist and a link back to ArtWanted.com. Another requirement is that you must already be an active member on Pinterest.

    IS THERE ANY COMPENSATION?

    If you are accepted into this program, you will receive a free Premium Membership for as long as you actively participate in the Pinners Program. You will also become part of the new "ArtWanted.com Advisory Board". This special group of members will have regular communication with our staff and help shape the future of ArtWanted.com.

    WHAT ARE THE NEXT STEPS?

    If you are interested in being part of the special "Pinners" group, simply contact us and let us know the e-mail address you are using for your Pinterest account and a link to your Pinterest profile for us to view. If accepted into this group, we will send you an e-mail with additional details and instructions. You can leave the program at anytime.

    CONCLUSION

    This is just one more way we are bringing more traffic and exposure to the artwork of our members. We encourage everyone to continue to use the Social Media sharing options on every image to share your favorite images with your friends via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and eMail. Have fun!

    Visit our Pinterest Page at:

    pinterest.com/artwanted/

    NOTE: If you do not want you artwork shared on social media websites like Pinterest, you can turn off this ability from the Member Preferences area.
