Artists and photographers face the exciting challenge of navigating an open digital landscape teeming with opportunities. While the creation of original artworks is undoubtedly the heartbeat of their creative journey, the world of reproductions unveils an array of advantages that cannot be overlooked. Offering high-quality reproductions of original pieces allows to extend the creative reach or artists, establish a robust marketing presence, and forge meaningful connections with art enthusiasts far and wide. Pictorem offers high-quality prints has a print on demand platform that is free and easy to use for both artists and potential buyers. Let's explore the remarkable advantages that lie within the domain of art reproductions and why you should choose us.
Selling prints can provide an additional source of revenue for artists. It allows them to sell multiple prints of the same artwork, making it possible to generate more income from a single work.

We also provide a Premium Account that allows more customization and private label options that make the artist the only name visible to the customer.
Prints make the artwork more accessible to a broader audience as they are usually more affordable than the original piece. Not everyone can afford an original art piece or has the space to display it, but prints provide a more budget-friendly and convenient alternative to still own a high-quality reproduction of their favorite art. As an artist, you may not be ready to cover the high cost of shipping for a large original artwork or take the risk of having it damaged during shipping.

Prints can be customized to fit the buyer's preferences. The buyer can choose the print size and even the type of print material the artwork is printed on, giving them more options to fit their personal taste and style.
With Pictorem, the artist can choose the minimum and maximum print sizes available for the artwork. Those print sizes will respect the ratio of the original image file (unless the customer chooses a fixed-sized print material like puzzles or standard frames). It is also possible for the artist to choose the print material available. Our website offers a wide range of quality print materials including papers, canvas, acrylic, metal, wood, mural, framed print, and more.

Limited edition prints can become collectible items, increasing in value over time. This can provide an additional incentive for art buyers to purchase prints as an investment.
Pictorem offers Certificates of Authenticity for prints with or without limited edition numbers.
Prints can help preserve the original artwork if it is created with a traditional medium. By creating a reproduction of the art piece, the artist can keep the original in a safe place, while still allowing others to enjoy the artwork through prints.
These advantages may be especially helpful if the medium used is not permanent or damaged:
-Old damaged artworks that need to be scanned or photographed and digitally retouched
-Traditional artworks created with mediums or substrates that are not archival or fade-resistant.
Overall, offering prints of original artworks can provide a range of benefits for both the artist and the art buyer, making it a popular and valuable option in the art world.

Get Creative with your next Acrylic print
This article is all about acrylics prints.
If you want to bring a contemporary look, to your home, your office or any other space you want to "dress up", this is the choice for you ,and we are going to guide you through all the different options available.
We print on the back of an optically pure acrylic sheet using the latest flatbed printer and we print right up to the edges of the acrylic, to provide a very neat finish.
First up - Size. We can print any custom size you want - ranging from a small 8x8 all the way up to a majestic 96x48. So if you want a large panoramic picture, or to even create a multi panel print, the only limit is your imagination.
We also offer different mounting options.
The most popular configuration is a back mount frame. We have a black layer at the back of the acrylic print and this option will give your print a frame with a wire, so it's ready for easy hanging. It will also give the impression that your acrylic is floating slightly away from the wall.
You can also display your acrylic print with Aluminum Stand offs. It will be at the same distance from the wall, about 3/4 of an inch. They are installed on each corner, so be sure to double check that we don't cut off any signature or crucial visual elements on your image. If you have a large acrylic, we suggest that you install more than 4 stand offs for a maximum distance between each stand off of about 40 inches. This will prevent your acrylic from bending.
We offer 2 different thicknesses. You have the choice between 1/8" inch and 3/16".
The 1/8 is already a great choice. It's very light and will remain flat if you are using a back mount frame.
The 3/16 thickness is a good option if you want to provide a greater optical depth, or when you have a large print to prevent the acrylic from bending between the stand offs, but it does add more weight.
You can really explore your creativity with transparency. We can print on specific areas only, and you can even go with a multi layer effect. If you want to print your logo, or any other background-free visual, it's simple. Just provide us with a PNG or Photoshop file with a transparent area.
You can create very interesting lighting effects with partial transparency like this "frost" effect. We will partially print the white layer so only the colors are fully printed.This looks absolutely stunning in natural light.
And if you want to use the acrylic on a lightbox with LEDs on the back, we can make a (backlit) print . All these printing options are available on our website.
We can also cut the acrylic any way you want. For example we can create rounded corners.
... or even a circular print. Again, these options are all available on our website.
The matte varnish canvas is also called “satin canvas” because of the subtle shine that runs through it.
The matte varnish finish adds an extra layer of protection to resist scratches and fingerprints so if your reproducing an image that has lots of black in it, this product is and ideal choice and one that you might want to consider!
On top of adding an extra layer of protection, colors will come out more vibrant so you can expect richer blacks and very vivid colors with this finish! Depending on the lighting, you can really see the texture of the canvas which can give an awesome complimentary effect to your artwork. Great choice if you want your colors to pop with an extra glossy look!
Semi-gloss canvas adds an extra layer of protection and the colors will appear more vibrant, so you can expect richer blacks and very vivid colors with this finish!
Depending on the lighting, you can really see the texture of the canvas which can give an awesome complimentary effect to your artwork. It is an exceptional choice if you want your colors to pop with an extra glossy look!
Silver canvas comes with a silver color base coat embedded into it. This means that all the white that you would normally see on a regular canvas will become silver, and all the other colors will come out looking metallic. We’ve seen some amazing photography and illustrations printed on this material that are simply mind-blowing!
We call this canvas option the knife varnish process. With this technique, we can mimic or create paint strokes to give a more authentic look to a painting or simply add an extra textured look to a photograph.
This process is the "showstopper". The epoxy coating will give your print a very luxurious, ultra high gloss finish.
This is the showstopper! The epoxy coating will give your print a very luxurious, ultra high-gloss finish.
This finish adds extra weight to the canvas so to make sure that the canvas doesn't buckle when adding the resin coat, we attach a masonite board behind the canvas. A canvas print with an epoxy coating requires more time and effort to produce, however, the results are totally worth it!
