New 3D Animated Lenticular Artwork Galleries
If you don't know what lenticular images are you can read several short pieces I wrote on my blog, "Notes from the Digital Workshop" called "What is 3D Lenticular Imaging?" and "How Does 3D Lenticular Printing Work?". If you still have questions feel free to shoot me an email and I'll try to answer the best I can.
I'm currently trying to figure out how I'm going to fund getting my lenticular images printed and several prototypes of my custom backlit displays built. I'm hoping that the sale of my 2D prints will create enough revenue to move on to the next step. Hopefully, you all can help me out.
My New Print and Frame Shop
Recently I discovered a cool new online service that lets me offer high quality reproduction prints and canvases of my artwork direct to you and at very reasonable prices. Fine Art America provides artists with an online gallery to upload their print ready images. Visitors to the site can select an image and choose to have a print or canvas made and shipped to them within a few days. This service only costs me a small yearly account fee so the overhead is extremely low and as a result the savings get passed on to you the buyer. I will still be offering personally signed and printed limited edition prints through the gallery channel or even better direct from the Digital Workshop.
If you have not already, I encourage you to try out my new Print & Framing Shop. After selecting the image you want you have a multitude of choices, size, paper or canvas, a number of different types of papers (I recommend the watercolor), glossy or matte canvas, matted in a variety of colors, double matted, framed, or just rolled in tube if you want only a print. The neat thing is that it gives you a preview of what the final framed print will look like as you make your different choices. The interface also lets you know how much it will cost. When you have created an image, mat and frame combination that you like just hit the checkout button. Paypal and all credit cards are accepted and the finished product is shipped directly to you.
Fine Art America also has a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee that should you be unhappy with your purchase you can simply return it within 30 days and get 100% of your money back. Recently Fine Art America began offering printed notecards of any image of your choice starting at $5.25 for one, $29.50 for ten, and $56.25 or twenty-five cards. Envelopes are included.
If you can afford it, it would greatly help me towards my goal of getting my lenticular creations funded. Thanks.
