Posts Tagged ‘pricing art’

Knowing of my interest in the business of art and the launch of my shop at etsy, my friend turned me on to this site called 20X200, an online art gallery that features two new pieces each week: one photo and one graphic piece on paper. The thing that caught my eye was “Great Art. $20. Really.” The $20 editions are a limited edition series of 200, and are smaller than 8.5 X 11, from the small selection I previewed. Something about having all the prices be the same appealed to me. Also, they listed how many were left, rather than what print number you would get if you bought right then. Interesting. Larger pieces are $200 and $2000. Now, the small print seemed like a better and even better deal next to these “pricer” options. I also noticed they don’t really give the specs on the printing — just “archival pigment print.” I would want more, but maybe most consumers would prefer less.

My takeaways? Try:

  • A universal price and size for all prints, so it’s easy to shop.
  • Increasing my number of limited editions and decreasing the price.
  • Reversing the limited edition number to show how many are left.
  • Offering the originals to show comparison value.
  • Less info on printing specs

What do you think. Any of these appeal to you? Do you spot any other opportunities they are using I could borrow for Shellybee’s Art Studio?
