So I work in a print shop. It's occurred to me that not only can I offer a discount for printing at my own work place, but I can proof it myself and make sure the colors print right. Ever notice that the prints you buy on deviantART look like neon lights threw up on them? That the quality and color is nothing like what you see on screen? That's because you can only submit files on deviantART as RGB, which is for screen. If you want to print, the color mode needs to be in CMYK. DeviantART doesn't allow that, but I can do that myself. Not to mention, taking out the middle-man is much better for pricing. So, here's what I propose:

Option 1: If you want to be spared the shipping costs and process, you can print my work yourself, after sending payment to my Paypal. You can pick an image from my gallery, except for deviantIDs, character/clothing designs, or WIPs, and you can give me the email address and physical address of the print shop of your choice (such as Office Depot). I will email the print-ready file to that print shop, with your name and the specified number of prints allowed, and they will print it for you and you can pick it up and pay for the printing at your leisure. Just throwing a number out here for now, I would say payment to me would be $5 for a single print allowed, and $1 for each additional print allowed. You will not be allowed to take the file itself. Proofing will be allowed as the printer specifies, but they will be watermarked proofs, and you will not be allowed to keep them. And, obviously, I will not email a file to a personal email address, unless it's a private commission. This protects my artwork from being stolen/mass produced without authorization.

Option 2: Traditional. You can pick the image you want as a print, and specify the size and number of copies, and provide your name and mailing address. I will then give you the total cost of the print(s) and shipping, and then I will print it and ship it to you once payment has been made. (I'm working on a price chart for various paper choices and sizes. Shipping will obviously vary based on the size and weight of the print(s) and your location.) The down side to this is that it's more complicated and takes longer, and you can't check out the paper yourself. The positive side is that I can proof the color and quality myself before shipping it, so you know it will look as I intended.

I'm a bit sick and sleepy, so sorry if I left something out or am not making sense. Anyone who's interested, note me.

I'm no longer responding to comments thanking me for favs and llamas. It's not that I don't appreciate it, but there's only so many ways I can say "you're welcome" before it starts to seem disingenuous, and also it's a lot of messages to keep up with on both this account and my digital and traditional art account. Besides, I give out llamas as my own "thank yous" for favs, so you don't need to thank me for thanking you. So feel free to say "thanks" if you want, but just be aware that I won't respond. Thanks.
