Can I Commission an artwork?

The short answer is - probably!

If you see a yellow button ' New! Commission artwork' on an artist's storefront, that means they are open to commissions.

You will have the option of filling out a list of specifications, please note, filling out this form does NOT bind you to going ahead with the commission, although you will be required to read and agree to our Terms and Conditions;

Once this has been completed and submitted, the artist will receive an email with your request, and will have the option to reply to you, as normal, via the internal messaging system. We advise that you establish the following points before agreeing to commence the commissions procedure;

  • Deposit amount (usually 30%)
  • Full price
  • Time frame
  • How it will be packaged
  • Shipping cost and time

When you're ready, the artist will send you a Commission Proposal. All you need to do is check the details and accept it, when you're ready. If you want it to be changed at all, just let the artist know and he/she will be able to edit it.

We will then facilitate taking the deposit (via invoice) and monitor all progress throughout the proceeding. We will collect the final balance (via invoice) upon completion, put the order through on your behalf and send you a confirmation email to that effect.

You can keep track of all messages in the  Commission request section of your account.
