QUESTIONS RELATING TO OUR SERVICE

I have never put my art/photography for sale as I do not have the confidence to do it. How can you help with this?

1create - 1st step is to believe

The first step in your creative journey is to believe in yourself. You will never know if you never try.

Art and photography is subjective meaning everyone sees something different in your work.

1create will assist you by removing the headache of setting up your own webstore to sell your work so you can focus on creating.

Here’s how we can help:

  1. We will help and guide you with your account setup (including your webstore).
  2. Provide you with hints and tips on getting the most out of your account.
  3. Promote your professional creative profile across all our assets.
  4. Promote your work and events. Again, across all our assets.
  5. Take care of order fulfilment including order processing, production, packaging and shipping to customers worldwide.

Being part of 1create also means you will get support from fellow artists within the 1create community.

What is 1create all about?

1create is a platform for creatives to showcase their talent, allowing them to:

1.) market their creativity
2.) showcase their talent
3.) sell their work and
4.) share their passions.

It was born out of a common frustration creatives have and developed by creatives for creatives.

Why 1create was created

We believe creatives should be able to earn a living doing what they love.

When people go to work or sell products they expect to be paid for their time, expertise and costs.

Why should it be any different for creatives?

You are creating something many people are unable to but want and you should get paid when you invest in yourself. It takes time and effort to create, using your expertise, creative mind and buying supplies costs money.

It’s only fair and makes perfect sense to reward this talent and amazing creations in monetary terms. Our goal is to match creatives with buyers that understand this.

What you get when you sign up:

  • A Professional Creative Profile to showcase who you are and what you do
  • A Webstore to sell your creative products – including prints, t-shirts and other merchandise
    (we take care of everything from production to order fulfilment)
  • Access to the 1create ticket office to add your own creative events (free and paid events)
  • Access to member only deals and more.

What is your offer? (what you get when you sign up)

  • A Professional Creative Profile to showcase who you are and what you do
  • A Webstore to sell your creative products – including prints, t-shirts and other merchandise
    (we take care of everything from production to order fulfilment)
  • Access to the 1create ticket office to add your own creative events (free and paid events)
  • Access to member only deals, comptetitions and more.

How many images can i display?

You can display up to 12 images at any given time.

However you can rotate or change these images once a month.

Although we say only 12 images these images will be turned into multiple products that include:

  • Prints with the following variations:
    • 3 different size options (small, medium and large)
    • 3 different finishes (Boxed Canvas effect, Framed in black or white contemporary frame or printed on Premium Aluminium).
  • T-Shirts with different colour and size options
  • Greeting cards in 2 size options
  • and other product ranges to be introduced

Who chooses the prices?

We do not take a percentage based on the value of your work but have a minimum price for all the items produced.

Therefore, if you wish to price your art prints at a higher price point the additional profit is yours (our pricing has been set based on our own extensive research).

However, the additional products have a set price (T-shirts, hoodies, greeting cards etc)

What is the range of prices per print?

Customers can buy the following print products of your work:

Products Small (£) Medium (£) Large (£)

Please Note: Pricing is reviewed regularly and may change but we will inform you of any changes.

What is the percentage for the artist per painting?

We do not take a percentage based on the value of your work but have a minimum price for all the items produced.

Therefore, if you wish to price your art prints at a higher price point the additional profit is yours.

EXAMPLE: When a customer buys a small boxed canvas effect print you get £25.57 profit.

How much do you take from each sale?

We do not take a percentage based on the value of your work but have a minimum price for all the items produced.

Our costs and margins are covered within that minimum pricing that includes your profit.

We take care of the following within that price:

  • Ensuring we take safe and secure payments from customers
  • printing
  • preparing
  • packaging
  • door to door shipping (internationally)
  • providing customer support for your customers
  • sending you your profits safely and securely (There is no outlay for you. All you collect are your profits).

All of the above are available in 3 different size options (small, medium and large).

QUESTIONS ABOUT INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

Is my work protected on your website?

This is something we take very seriously at 1create limited.

We work hard to protect your work on the website employing a number of different approaches such as no right click so people can not copy straight from the website, no download options for images and are also registered with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) which we also advise our members to do as well.

Further to that all members are required to agree to very specific Terms and Conditions that also cover intellectual property and copyright. Each piece of artwork must be accompanied with a signed Certificate of Authenticity by the artist that produced the work.

If members are seen to breech this agreement (particularly the Intellectual Property sections) they will be passed on to the relevant authorities and pursued with the full extent of the law. We also implore you as an artist to take your own steps to protect your own intellectual property as we all have to work together to protect this. You must ensure that you have all the relevant licenses to sell your work if you have given the rights to another party and agree to indemnify 1create limited if you fail to do so.

Why do I need to sign a certificate of authenticity?

To provide evidence to the purchaser that you are the originator of the work.

To protect you and your work from copyright infringement as this validates you as the originator of the work. Anyone else claiming to have bought your work via your webstore on 1create.co.uk will have to produce this certificate (as well as other criteria) to prove it.

Do customers receive a copy of certificate of authenticity?

Yes.

A certificate will be affixed to the print Andy accompanying it on shipping.
