creativehub offers two features to get you selling art online in next to no time. These are microsites, and our Shopify app. Both of these enable you to sell limited edition runs and streamline the fulfilment process through our award-winning printing service, theprintspace. For every edition sold and sent to your customer, theprintspace will send a certificate of authenticity with your branding and digital signature.
To get up and running with limited editions on microsites, click here.
To install our Shopify app and find out more about this service, click here.
Once you have these measures in place, use our step-by-step guide to pricing your prints and learn how to set them as limited editions. See how much profit you'll make straight away!
Once you have uploaded your images into your hub account and clicked "images" on the header menu, click on an image.
Each image you have uploaded appears with a little blue hamburger button in the bottom right-hand corner. By clicking on this button, a menu appears. Click on “print pricing”, and the following screen will appear:
Select print type and paper first and choose between inches and mm.
To add optional borders click on “add” if you wish to add it to your print. For more help on adding borders, see the help section: selling art online > how to add borders to my print.
Now set the price you wish to sell the print at. This will be the inclusive VAT price total that your customers will see.
The retail price and print cost is calculated for you. You will be unable to save this print if net profit is negative, so ensure that “retail price including VAT” is the amount you wish to sell at.
Tick the “available?” box to make the print available for sale.
If you wish to sell this print size as a limited edition – ensure you tick this box. We provide the limited edition information on the checkout process and supply certificates to all purchasers of your edition showing the edition number and total in edition. For more help on limited editions, see the help section: selling art online > how to set up and sell limited editions.
Current # sold shows the number that you have currently sold in this edition. When you sell a print in your edition through the hub this number will increase automatically.
- You can also sell prints outside of the hub and track the edition numbers and download a certificate here. Click on the icon to increase the number of prints sold in the edition where a print is sold outside of the hub. You will be able to print off a certificate for each edition sold in this way, to give to your customer.
- Click on the icon again to decrease the number of prints sold in the edition where a print sold outside the hub has been returned to you with the certificate to be destroyed. We will automatically decrease the number sold if we get statutory returns of prints sold via the hub.
# in edition is where you set the total number of prints that are available in your edition. Once the first print has been sold you cannot amend this as it has been sold to the customer on the basis of there being a particular limited number available, so please choose carefully!
If you wish to see what the certificates look like click on “preview certificate” and amend details or upload a digitised version of your signature (recommended) then click on “print sales” > “settings” > “artist name, signature and logo”.
And finally, click on the “save” button.
Another feature of thehub is the ability to set the same pricing features to multiple images:
Select all the images that you want to set pricing to and click on “print pricing”.
Set your print pricing for one image, as above, then, when clicking on “save for identically shaped images”, thehub will automatically assign the same print price settings for all those images. You also choose the option to “save for this image only”.
