Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Would some photographers post about their success with canvas and metallic (floating) prints? How do the sales compare to each other and to traditional prints? Are one type of the 3 good for one subject, another for another? For example, landscapes might look good on metal but flowers not. I don't know, so I'd love to hear the experiences of others.
David some shows are not allowing Canvas prints. The metal print look great and make your sales numbers look good but the profit may be same as framing traditional. I will suggest you to try it out (one wall) see how it works for you and go from there. I personally like the traditional look.
It depends if you sell standard sizes or not. I sell mostly panoramas. Standard size images go in a browse bin and I do not have any of them framed. I sell prints of the panoramas by order only. I don't have them in the booth. Most people buy the framed panoramas because they realize that off sizes are expensive to frame. I only added the matted prints last year and framed panoramas are still my best seller.
Turns out that Mark at Frame Destination and I have some mutual friends! He's in Dallas, I grew up and shot there for 30 yrs. I agree, he looks like the place to go. And he supports AFI
