Wholesale Art

As with many areas of wholesale purchasing, there are basically two ways to obtain wholesale art: buying in bulk and buying direct. Buying wholesale art in bulk can give the individual or someone wanting to resell a great price per individual piece and an even lower price for buying in quantity. Buying wholesale art direct helps the individual avoid middleman costs, often allowing the person to get art objects directly from a manufacturer of excellent reproductions or original items from an artists' representative.

In the first instance, you will probably have to contact a wholesale art dealer/supplier and establish a wholesale account. In most cases you will have to provide business license numbers and state sales tax information that proves you are a retail site, an interior designer or member of another trade that has access to wholesale art. When the wholesale status has been approved, you will be able to receive wholesale discounts on art prints.

For the retail buyer, there are usually separate prices on wholesale art. While these numbers may not be as low as those for wholesale art trade buyers, they will probably be considerably less than what you would pay in a gallery or retail outlet. As one supplier emphasizes, "if you are not in the art business, you are welcome to place an order for any of our art prints at the prices shown to you." Wholesale art buyers (bulk) receive a completely different set of instructions.

Prices on wholesale art and quantity discount prices on wholesale art are generally more than half the price on a similar print or reproduction from the retail dealer. So, you should probably not expect any further discounts or price cuts. For example, a landscape print that might cost $20 or more in a gallery or retail, can be purchased for $8 to $15 from a "wholesale art to the public" source. The range of prices is set by the size of the print you order, from 8.5 x 11 to 11 x 14.

Some wholesale art distributors specialize in prints of quality art, providing items to frame shops, galleries, gift shops and so on. Fortunately, the individual buyer who wants to have top-quality prints can work with these same suppliers to get excellent wholesale art at less than half the retail price. Many times these suppliers will work with an individual who wants to purchase only one or two prints and still get the lowest price.

Suppliers of wholesale art usually divide their products into categories that help the buyer and seller narrow the selection. For instance, if an individual buyer wants something in the animal category, suppliers will immediately skip the beach scenes, kitchens, gardens and lighthouses, to look only at animals. Then the choice can be narrowed even further, aided by computer search programs that are in wide use in the wholesale art industry.

Many of the wholesale art suppliers not only provide production prints and items from less well-known artists, but these suppliers also offer fine art pints on high quality papers. As one supplier notes, these are not cheap posters. They are fine art lithographs and prints sold for 2 or 3 times the money at retail.

To find a reputable supplier in wholesale art, ask questions. Does the dealer have years (decades) of experience.? Does this dealer have exclusive representation with top artists? Will this dealer give you names and contact information for satisfied customers? If so, you are well on your way to a good experience with wholesale art.
