In order to get your art into Artomat, you have to submit a prototype to get their approval. I just finished making my prototype which I am going to send to them today.
On the Artomat website, they recommend putting some info about yourself with the painting, so after wrapping the painting in foam wrap for protection, I taped an “About the Artist” card on the top (along with a little thank you note to the buyer).
Then I put the whole thing in a 2″x3″ box made just for the Artomat machines.
Then, I put a hand-drawn cover on the front (although in the end I may end up printing something pretty)…
and a business card on the back. (The front of my business card is like a painting, the back is my contact info)
They also ask that applicants submit a little 2″x2″ place card for the machine, so here’s the one I designed:
And that’s all! So I send it out today, and then I wait and see what happens! Hopefully they will accept it, and if so, then I send them 50 more (each original hand made art, and each different!) and they sell them for $5 each and give me $2.50 for each one sold.
