Artist Work

This site is a great freelance opportunity for artists.

If you are an artist who would like to apply your talents, follow the simple step-by-step process listed below.

 

Step 1

Create an account here. All information is required for shipping and billing if your work is purchased. This will also allow you to keep track of the projects you’re working on via the My Activity section. Make sure you select Artist as your account type.

Step 2

Browse the photos in the In Progress section, make a selection, and create your artwork.

Step 3

Submit a photo of your artwork and the price you would like to charge. You can do this in one of two ways:

  1. Submit your photo on this page.
  2. You can email the submission to us at postandpaint@gmail.com.

Need help with this step? See our help guide.

*Remember: The price you submit is what the customer pays. We deduct 30% as commission, and shipping costs are in your hands. Remember to calculate for these when deciding on a price. Learn more about our pricing here.

Step 4

Your posted artwork will appear on the site within 24 hours (the delay is due to screening for inappropriate postings), and an email will be sent to the prospective buyer who posted the original photo.

Step 5

See if they respond to you. Buyers will sometimes try to negotiate the price or request a small tweak to the painting. We will be your intermediary and send you important updates via email.

If the customer decides to purchase your artwork, we will send you an email. Remember that you will be in charge of safely shipping the painting to the customer!

If they decide not to purchase your painting, it is yours. Sell it, paint over it, or keep it. Whatever you see fit!

Hint to Artists: While customers can leave notes suggesting the medium they would like used, you may want to try something different. Be creative! That’s what artists do, and the customer may be pleasantly surprised by your artistic vision. Besides, there is no rule that a customer can buy only one treatment of their photo. Have fun!
