Prints On Metal: A New Way To Market Your Art
in Art Tips
Learning the best ways to market your artwork is an important skill to master if you’re an independent artist.
While there’s several methods you can try…
Advertising your original designs as prints on common products like T-shirts, coffee mugs, and smart phone cases are decent options.
However, featuring your designs on cheap canvases like these can prevent you from communicating the full value of your artwork to potential customers.
As a result, this can hinder your ability to:
◾ create a recognizable brand as an artist
◾ promote it more effectively to customers
◾ and command a lot more sales.
It's the perfect marketing strategy for artists.

There are plenty of great reasons to join Displate community of artists, but here is the top 3 that we find the most important.
