We sell all kinds of artworks. But every artwork will have to be reviewed and approved before we sell it. Artworks that that creates emotions are often what we sell most of. We sell both digital and paintings, but we do not approve AI generated artworks.
How do i create a poster (print-file) from my artwork?
In order to print the best possible poster of your artwork, we need a print-file. Paintings can be scanned or photographed in order to create a digital copy using software such as Photoshop. The digital file (whether it is a digital copy of a painting or a digital artwork) needs be exported into a print-file compatible with our inkjet prints to archive the best result. We have made a thorough guide on “How to create a digital copy of a painting” and “How to export a print-file“.
How many artworks will I need in my portfolio?
In general we suggest to upload at least 5 artworks to begin with. This will make it more interesting for our customers to explore your “universe”. However this is not mandatory.

We will need to approve any poster submitted before we can sell it. Here you can read our guides on how to create a good digital copy of an artwork.
In what sizes and quality do you print the poster?
We print the poster on professionel inkjet printers with high quality paper suited best for the artwork. You choose the sizes to print but we advice you to upload your artwork in a “A-size” as it is the most popular when sold as A4 (21×29,7 cm), A3 (29,7×42 cm) and A2 (42×59,4 cm).
