The Deal - Terms & Conditions

Our group of galleries, and some channels on our TV network at Top Deck Publications run a FREE service, set up so that all photographers, artists, pro artists, hobby artists, ghetto artists, therapy artists, arts in health & the disabled, art students and their parents, art teachers, agents, lawyers and institutions can submit, display and market the work. We promote, publish, and sell prints or DVD's of the work and the artist, or your school/uni or charity make royalties. We also simultaniously act as an agency, attracting commission contracts. (Artists generally prefer to keep their valuable originals but make saleable copies, to increase the originals value over time) See HERE a general instruction sheet so you can see the logic behind how an Artist/Agent/Publisher should usually deal with their Art, how Artwork is valued and how it can rise in value.

Poetry, Recipes & Songwriting
Please create one or more poems or songs on your sheet, and try to present it as artistic, so that it can be printed as cards and/or posters. Poets and Song Writers, may wish to collaborate with an artist to create their work for submission below. Artists and Typesetters can be found at StudentGems.com

Music & Video
Please try to do a quality video of any work that is produced, simply upload it to YouTube and send us the link below.

How to prepare work for upload
Those wishing to do a video, or who require artistic help can find help at our entry forum/network group - Join Below. Or students can be recruited and employed at StudentGems.com

Please stipulate before uploading whether the work is a Poem, Song, cartoon, logo, music, video, Fashion, commercial, art etc
To get your works of art printed and on display for sale - all you need to do is first film as above, or photograph your Art with a good Megapixel camera, and then copyright the file, (by posting it to yourself by recorded delivery putting the postal stickers over the envelope flap/seal to prove the date), if the money is available ipo.gov offer a Registered Designs and TradeMark service (search for WO for world rights). Then upload the file at our website (this will also provide a copyright date with reputable publishers), by clicking the SUBMIT WORK/JOIN/UPLOAD button below. Click 'forum' or 'artist login' at the gallery main menu at any time to access the forum once joined.



Technical note:
Unless it is a cartoon or video, each Picture for upload must be of high enough resolution to print - upto (66" x 46.8") at 300 DPI... so at least a 28+ megapixel camera should be used to photograph your work, or if it is video, it should be atleast FULL HD, or if it is digital art created on a computer or photography, it should be atleast this size (ie 19800 pixels along the longest edge) when you start the picture, using CMYK mode if possible, (with the solid Black areas unimposed by other colour channels, as it is with RGB). If it is basic lineart with block colour and can be easily autotraced then a smaller file may be accepted subject to curve smoothness). Our Pre-Press department will work hard with whatever file you send, to maximise the quality when printed.
.jpg .bmp or .Tif file's may be uploaded, although, slight .jpg compression may sometimes be required resulting in an average 6 megabyte file, for easy upload. When sending, Files bigger than 6 megabytes may sometimes be difficult to upload and resolution can be reduced to as little as 100 DPI without the eye generally noticing at normal viewing distance; However some artwork such as Photography and Fine Art containing unique colours may have to be bigger than 6 megabytes at 300 DPI and kept as a .Tif file without any jpg compression atall, so please do try to upload any sized file upto 50 megabytes, as we continually advance our system.

UNLIKE MOST OTHER ONLINE GALLERIES, EACH PICTURE SUBMITTED IS INDIVIDUALLY JUDGED AND PROCESSED TO ENSURE QUALITY AND WATERMARKED/REDUCED IN SIZE BY HAND IN ORDER TO TRY TO PROTECT THE PICTURE FILE FROM MISS-USE AND PIRATE PRINTING WHEN IT IS PUBLISHED - DURING THIS TIME CONSIDERATION IS GIVEN TO HOW THE PICTURE MIGHT BE NICHE MARKETED IN THE FUTURE FOR EFFICIENT AND APPROPRIATE EXPOSURE.

exposure
Pictures may then be duplicated, and displayed in your own gallery page at our public galleries and on Telemate.TV, as seen at Top Deck Publications .co.uk, A selection of the most popular pictures may later be mass produced (printed on paper and material/clothes) and distributed to shops, art cafe's, and other galleries selling varied printed products (niche galleries such as Getoart.com and ciriefader.com). We hope to distribute the best works as mass produced prints & DVD's, using our print or DVD dispensers, internationally representing £30,000 - £600,000 in royalties. Artists, students, and traders are also able now to have production copies made available at a discounted price to sell at degree shows and other events or outlets where you might want to sell the work!. (see the main menu at the gallery to see more information about how we can help you promote your work once it has been submitted - sorry-English speaking only)

Our best selection of artwork may also be published in The Arto Trader - The Arto Trader Printed Magazine & DVD's, with a distribution of upto 40,000 in local areas and upto 6,000,000+ internationally. See HERE the Arto Trader instruction sheet so you can see the logic behind how Artwork is valued and how it can rise in value.

As a promotional aid visitors are invited to copy a lower resolution picture to their desktop, we also periodically distribute free postcards and merchandise* to students and other places to promote the gallery and your work.

Once work has been submitted, as an artist. agent, parent or teacher at our galleries you will be able to LOG-IN to the Forum. News, updates, media and job opportunities are posted here, and it is a place where artists can chat to each other about art and college issues, former students and pro artists will also be invited in the hope of encouraging new or younger artists.
(Trade price prints, Postcards, Tshirts, and mousemats are also available)

Our Public galleries are updated on a 1-5 year basis. We will let you know at the forum when the public gallery has been updated with your picture/s
(welcome packs with free postcards coming soon) and you can access the forum at the main menu by clicking on 'Forum' or 'Artist log in'.

OUR PUBLIC GALLERIES ARE SPIDERED BY THE SEARCH ENGINES AND ARTIST'S MAY PREFER TO USE AN ALIAS ARTIST NAME - PLEASE LET US KNOW THIS AT THE ENTRY FORUM WHEN UPLOADING WORK.

Royalties
You or your school (whoever submits the work) will receive royalties for every print or DVD commercial sold, You make 75% Royalties (after production costs are deducted) or 20-33%(of RP) on individual print sales eg. £7-10 royalties per individual £29.50 A2 print sale, and £60 royalties per individual £295 A0 print sale. 2.00 per poster print - if mass produced (sold @ £7 trade price), £2 for every £16 postcard pack sold over the web, and £5 for every T shirt sold (£1 per shirt mass production). £1 for gift items, greetings card packs, calendars and Jigsaws (Doubling to £2+ after 2nd order depending on pre-press/set-up work involved). Royalties will not be paid for any free promotional cards/prints or clothing items which we give away. 20% Royalties on any print right share sales is also given


Sometimes a customer will want an original. eg a signed oil on canvas copy, or rights to use your work. We will contact you by phone or email (sorry English speaking artists only at present) if this happens, and take a small commission for getting you the work/contract. (Thus helping to fund the running and promotion of our galleries and your pictures)..you can also submit a link to your own website so customers can contact you direct..with no commission taken by us
Some artists, in this case, prefer to produce an original copy of the original (using the same technique/material etc). We do not encourage the sale of originals in a hurry and reccommend that print sales increase the originals value over time. We also sell Commercial Advertising to go next to your work, and if this happens, a percentage in Royalties is given.

Our aim is to distribute a selection of the best works as prints internationally
representing £30,000+ in royalty payments to those selected artists.


Royalties for print sales are paid by Cheque to whoever submits the work, yearly in January once it reaches £30 or more. (more often for popular prints or larger amounts).

Legalities
By submitting your artwork you agree to this statement -that the work is entirely of your own, or your clients, origination, is fully licensed where applicable, and that you, the originator give us permanent rights to copy and sell prints of it.
This agreement is non-exclusive, and we hope that other publishers, galleries and organisations will purchase prints from us at trade price (or affiliation) -simply purchase from the gallery and join our affiliate commission scheme.

Considerable time and effort is put into displaying and marketing your work, for this reason we cannot remove work from the gallery (and printed catalogues/magazine's/and Outlets) once it is displayed and prepared for print. Where applicable, a few years after a Student Artist has left university, or such as retirement, work will be moved to the former students archive or other appropriate archive which acts as an art history guide.

Competition Prizes
County and National Prize moneys will only be paid if we find it financially viable to expand our printed publications respectively to all of those areas both county wide and nationally. In this case, local prizes on a town by town or city by city basis however will still be paid.

 

UNLIKE MOST OTHER ONLINE GALLERIES, EACH PICTURE SUBMITTED IS INDIVIDUALLY JUDGED AND PROCESSED TO ENSURE QUALITY AND WATERMARKED/REDUCED IN SIZE BY HAND IN ORDER TO PROTECT THE PICTURE FILE FROM MISS-USE AND PIRATE PRINTING - DURING THIS TIME CONSIDERATION IS GIVEN TO HOW THE PICTURE MIGHT BE NICHE MARKETED IN THE FUTURE FOR EFFICIENT AND APPROPRIATE EXPOSURE.

Our Public galleries are updated on a 1-5 year basis basis. We will let you know at the forum if the public gallies are to be updated with your picture/s
(welcome packs/postcards coming soon) ...We reserve the right to withhold work from the gallery subject to quality and manpower availability.

As an OPTIONAL EXTRA we may contact you at a later date to make an additional agreement.
As we have mentioned above, our aim is for the best selection of artwork to be published in mass produced issue's of The Arto Trader
- The Arto Trader Printed Magazine & DVD's, with a distribution of upto 6,000,000+ internationally. This cost's us over £600,000 per issue in the UK alone, THIS IS OPTIONAL FOR ONLY THE BEST SELECTED ART, so for this reason, and If you are selected and agree to be placed in the printed magazine, (we might ask you at a later date - about a year after uploading your works) your profile can be raised substantially with many print sales, making your originals' worth a lot of money, and making you very well known (famous)! So we ask all artists that are selected and who agree at a later date in a seperate agreement, who appear in the printed magazine, to give us sole rights to reproduce their work, Including agency commissions to prevent customers from contacting you (being inundated) and taking advantage! Simply get customers to contact us and we will make arrangements with you for each commission and the associated media coverage.
See HERE the Arto Trader instruction sheet so you can see the logic behind how Artwork is valued and how it can rise in value. This is not something you have to decide until you are selected as one of the best artist's in a seperate agreement to enter into the PRINTED magazine.
It is an added optional extra, not all artists want to be famous, and if you decline the offer, it is not a problem and you can still remain in the website gallery and in the lower quantity distributed issues on a NON-EXCLUSIVE basis.
We do not usually require sole rights to reproduce your work, and therefore reserve the right to place your artwork in the lower quantity magazines, without an additional agreement, but continued on a non-exclusive basis, so you can still be published elsewhere without our involvement.
