Typography Digital Downloads

For years now, many of my art pieces have been available online through several printing partners such as Fine Art America and Imagekind.  They do a fabulous job of displaying, printing, framing, and shipping my art world-wide.  And you can't beat the quality of their work and customer service.  I create the work and do the advertising. - they do everything else and  I make a little money off each print.  I have no complaints about these services and will continue to use them.  However, by the time everyone involved gets their piece of the pie for printing, fine art papers or canvas, glass and framing, and then you add in shipping  .... it can get a little pricey.  And of course, the bigger the art, the bigger the price, while the profit for the artist - me - remains pretty much the same.

So, I've discovered a new way to share some of my art and save my buyers some money in the process.  Digital Downloads via Etsy!

This is how Digital Downloads work:

  • Visit my Etsy shop.
  • Select the print you want.
  • Pay for it with a credit card.  (You do not have to have a PayPal account.)
  • Upon receipt of your payment, a high resolution jpeg and pdf file of the art will be sent to your email address.  "Instant" Digital Downloads are usually sent within 1/2 hour.  Other Digital Downloads are sent within 3 work days.  All the ones I have posted right now are "Instant."
  • Once you receive the file, you can print it anyway you like (as long as you don't violate my *copyright.)
Advantages for you:
  • You will save money. The downloads on this page range in price from $3 to $5.
  • No shipping cost!
  • Instant gratification in the case of the "instant" digital download.
  • You can print it on your inkjet printer at home, your local print/copy shop, or any place you have photos or canvas photos printed.  Using heat transfers on your inkjet printer, you can also print these images on pillows, tote bags, T-shirts and other fabrics.

So - I have re-opened my  Lee Owenby Etsy Shop with just a few digital downloads of typography. This is something of an experiment just to see how it goes.  I chose typography files because I love doing these.  If you are into typesetting or graphic arts, you might be able to create these yourself, but I have them priced so low - $3 to $5 - why not just buy them and save yourself some time?  These are high resolution, so you can print big.

So I hope you'll visit my shop.  I'd love to hear from you - your comments on digital downloads or something you would like to see as a digital download.
