Our artists have approached offering prints or notecards in several ways.
Detailed info on each method is listed below.
NOTE: If you want your new collection to show on your navigation bar and not be listed with your other collections under your paintings category (Works), set Hide In Portfolio to YES.
To display your card/print collection with the rest of your collections under the Works category, leave Hide In Portfolio set to NO.
You can also assign artwork to the new collection, as follows:
NOTE: An individual image can only be assigned to one collection. If you have a piece already in one collection and you wish to add it to your Card/Prints collection you will need to upload the image again to assign the image to the Card/Prints collection.
set up a single Page within the Pages Category
NOTE: you can also add a PayPal custom button to this page.
See this FAQ: Add Custom Paypal Button to a Page
Add the new page to your navigation bar:
Print on demand (POD) is a printing technology and business process in which copies of a book (or other document) are not printed until an order has been received, allowing books to be printed singly, or in small quantities.
There are a number of Print on Demand services out there to choose from including:
A Google search will lead you to even more. FASO does not currently offer a Print on Demand service.
Here are some examples of artists using Print On Demand services on their FASO websites.
These artists have set up a custom shopping cart in their PayPal accounts so they can offer prints in multiple sizes with drop down options.
Selling prints at multiple sizes/prices can be done quite nicely, and requires some work in both your Paypal account and your FineArtStudioOnline Control Panel.
Following these steps, a couple of our FASO client's have set up their sites to allow for purchasing an item that has multiple sizes/prices/choices. You can see it in action on the following artist sites:
NOTE: each of the above artists are using collections for their prints. They have omitted the price from the retail field for each print image and used a custom PayPal shopping cart button.
This leaves the option open to still use the FASO buy now button and shopping cart for other single works of art. You can see this on Anita Gersch Equine Art.
For a tutorial on how to, see this FAQ:
Add a Buy Now Button with Multiple Choices
You can simply list print prices in the Collection Description box. This simple but straightforward approach is attractive and works nicely.
See SarahHarless.com as an example.
There is quite a bit of information here to consider. As you can see there are many options for selling prints and notecards. How you choose to proceed is a personal preference.
Once you decide how you want to present your prints you can let FASO Support know. We can then provide more detailed instructions if needed.
