Shoot Your Art Galleries
Douglas Photographic Imaging has been providing professional copy services for artists for over 30 years. We've created copy transparencies in sizes from 35mm to 8" x 10" and now provide a variety for digital options too. Artists depend on us to create reproductions for distribution and to prepare images for competitions, show judging and web presentation. So today we're also providing our Artist customers the opportunity to display images for sale via our website.
In addition to offering the conventional copy and printing services you've come to know us for over the past 30+ years, we also now offer inkjet printing on Canvas and Fine Art mediums. We're here to help you market and distribute your art to a broader market than ever before. By providing the copy services, printing, display and distribution in a single location we can streamline your delivery to the customers.
We also have a generous lobby and hall that we can make available for displaying your art.
By displaying your art on the Shoot Your Art section of douglasphoto.com you can make it easy for potential customers to find you and your work. Similar to hanging your work full-time in a brick-and-mortar gallery, clients will have the opportunity to see your works between shows, and better yet: 24-hours a day, 365-days a year.
Our IT department works hard on search engine optimization to assure that you and your work will be found and easy to review using any of the largest web search engines. Using "keywords" of your chosing we can make sure the subject of your art is searchable across the Internet.
Once the client finds a work they would like to purchase (in any of the print options we offer), they simply contact us to place the order. We process the order using digital images that you leave on file with us, and ship the product directly to the client. Each month we will send you a check for the net proceeds from your sales.
