Artist Earns $40,000 of Profit with One Simple Decision
In 2022, an artist who works with us added an additional $40,000 in annual profit to their art business through a seemingly simple decision: by offering quality canvas giclée prints to their fans and followers. This artist wishes to remain anonymous for the sake of their personal brand, but that doesn’t make this story any less true! They aren’t interested in bragging about their income, only helping other artists to find new ways to succeed. We are excited they shared their story with us!

But more on that below. First, let’s dive in.
The True Story
This artist’s original works typically sell for anywhere between $5,000 and $15,000, making them out of reach for some collectors. By offering canvas prints of their work on their website, the artist was able to provide collectors with a more accessible option at a much lower price point of $400 to $1,200. The prints were available in various sizes, with the option to add a black or white float frame to the order. In their first year alone, they earned an additional $60,000 in revenue, which came out to about $40,000 in profit on print sales alone.
It was like turning on a money printing machine. No seriously. Printing money!!
Initially, the artist was hesitant to offer giclée canvas prints, as they felt it would diminish the value of their original works. However, with the help of Kingston Frameworks, they made small changes to the appearance of the prints to clearly differentiate them from the artists’ originals, which proved to be successful. How? They decided to make the depth of the printed canvas 3/4″ instead of their usual gallery depth on originals, and made the edges different from the way they finish the edges of an original. These small changes were enough to make the prints different, but still totally desirable to their collectors
How They Did It...
The artist received special pricing on canvas printing from the Kingston Frameworks Wholesale Catalogue that allowed them to earn three to four times the cost of the work on each sale. The quality of the canvas prints was always high, leaving collectors satisfied with their purchases.
In some cases, buying a canvas print was a gateway that led to clients wishing to purchase original work. Once they saw the printed piece in their space at a lower investment, they realized how much they wanted an original too.
Besides the occasional promotion on social media or through their e-mail list, the only work that the artist had to do was to set up the products on their website. They were able to complete the website set up themselves, using their website provider with ease. While some artists may wish to have a web designer handle this work, they found it quite simple to do.
They found the published pricing of the Wholesale Catalogue to be convenient, because it allowed them to easily determine the pricing they wished to charge for each size and style. Prices are laid out in a single line that applies to multiple different aspect ratios, and the Kingston Frameworks staff were happy to help them understand the catalogue and how it applied to their work.
In addition to increased revenue, the artist discovered hidden benefits to offering prints. They could drive sales during a slow season simply by offering a sale on prints, without the risk of devaluing their original works. This proved to be very effective, and the additional sales more than made up for the discounted pricing. It turned a slow month into a record breaking month of real income!
Another benefit, was gaining even better pricing through the Wholesale Catalogue. Having sold as much as they did, they gained access to the Gold Tier of the Catalogue, where every order receives an automatic 20% price reduction.
A True Success Story!!
The artist says “printing has been a game changer” that actually enhanced their personal brand rather than diminished it. Now that more people can become collectors right away and live with the piece in their homes, the demand for originals has increased rather than decreased. The additional income is most welcome too!
