How do Artists get compensated for use of their work?
We want to be sure that artists are fairly compensated every time someone has a chance to experience their work. Artists receive up to 40% of the revenue on every sold print.
Why do I sometimes make more from a print sale, and sometimes less?
The amount of money the artists makes from a print sale depends on how many Credits the customer uses to buy the print. Credits are earned when customers rent images for an exhibition. If no Credits are used the artist makes 40%, if Credits are used to purchase the print the artist will make up to 40%. The artists will never receive less than 25% of the revenues from a print sale.
How and when are artists paid?
Artists will be paid via Banc or PayPal on the 15th of every month. We distribute your earnings as soon as you've accrued 500 Sek or more.
Who maintains copyright of the work while it's on Wallexpo?
The artist always maintains copyright of the work they create. We ask for permission to use your images on our web site, to create high quality prints, and in press and marketing materials. The images will always be credited to the artist.
What are the prints made of and how are they printed?
The prints we send out to our customers are printed on a high quality durable material that produces a high-quality image and holds up to the wear-and-tear of repeated in-home trials.
What's to prevent someone from just stealing my image off Wallexpo and printing it out on their own?
The visible images on Wallexpo have been sized down to thumbnail proportions, so a resulting printed image would be of very poor quality. Also the image will have a Wallexpo watermark in the middle. No image which appears on the website, or on any other online sources will contain a high resolution image of your work. Your high resolution images are stored in a file storage location which is only accessible to member of the Wallexpo staff.
Who selects the work that goes up on the site?
We trust artists to decide which pieces they would like to show but we reserve the right to make the call about whether or not a particular piece is right for the site. Some artists find it helpful to receive input about which of their pieces would be best for the type of customers we attract and we're definitely here to help if you need us. We ask that artists submit bodies of work that demonstrate a consistency in technical skill and a cohesion of style or content. We find this is what our customer base is looking for and what works best for your artist portfolio page and browse page display.
Who sets pricing for prints?
Wallexpo does. We sell prints in many sizes and material and it´s based on printing costs.
Can I show my work in gallery shows or on my own website while it is on Wallexpo?
Sure, if the gallery is cool with that. We would appreciate it if you kept the price listed on Wallexpo consistent with the price of the piece through other venues.
What are your requirements for the images I submit?
A imagefile with upwards of 18 megapixels (5184x3456 pixels). High resolution scans work too. Remember sizing up in photo editing software (sometimes lack of sharpness and noise), let us know if you have done this when submitting your work.
In order to create fine art quality enlarged prints of your images/artwork, we need high resolution jpg files saved in compression 12 in Photoshop (or as high quality as possible).
If all is ok so far, know what?
It's easy. You can go here to submit an application. Within a couple of days, we will get back to you with instructions on how to submit the content we need to get you up on the site. Most importantly, at least 5 high resolution images of your work. We're excited to see your work!
