and artworks in the world and featured in this site. While personally contacting us may
be of help, written works and references on works found in this site may help

can go to sleep when your images are uploaded into our site. What are directly
displayed are low resolution
images that may often be useless to copy cats. These low resolution images are
often equally seen during google searches, and in our opinion, they are there as
leads that can popularize the art and the artist and not remove from him.
However, the high-res images are protected in our cloud facility and are never
reached by image thieves.
If you aren't satisfied with your custom artwork, we are more than happy to work with you again and again to make it perfect!

art originals are usually made, priced and sent without frames. This is however
for a good reason as a wide number of art buyers would either prefer their art
hanging on their walls without the obtrusion of a frame or would prefer frames
of their choices. If you want a frame accompanying your art originals, do not

Right now, it is difficult to define what may be strictly referred to as African Art. What if an Australian lives in Africa and creates works of Art? What if an African lives in London and creates works of Art?
What about the scenario of a German artist incensed by African motifs and symbolism? When you upload an image and give a suitable description of it, for as long as it has even the least nexus with Africa and its motifs and symbolism, it will be accepted and regarded as an African Art.
It often begins like
that. At the beginning there may be no sales for a month, for three months, six
months or even a year. However, sales will come when you make more efforts to
direct people to your works. In some instances, sales may even come without any
effort depending on the content of your work and the amount of skills you have
shown. However, such sales do not persist without reasonable marketing efforts
from your side. People that make sales often hold exhibitions, go to art fairs,
or publish their works in as many forums as possible. Sales will definitely
come when you make efforts. This will usually be complemented by the efforts we make from our site. We don't rest on our oars. We work assiduously to ensure that every artist and artworks on our site are given marketed.
You are required to do a lot of self publishing and advertising for your works using all forms of available social media. The more you expose and advertise your work with your friends and art lovers, the more likely your work will sell. While we make efforts to ensure that works on our website sell, we advice our artists to do aggressive marketing both online and offline that can lead people to their works in our site.
The preferred file resolution is 300 ppi. Generally, it is advised that your files must not
be less than 2 Mb and must not be more than 20 MB in size and must be saved in jpeg format.Your files should, ideally, be this resolution
at the final print size that you intend to create. We can accept files that are
a lower resolution than this, and we can enlarge your files as requested, but
it’s important to understand that this is not the most ideal situation and can
result in low quality print.s. We will let you know if your file is lower
than 150 pixels/inch at final print size, as this is the lowest resolution we
recommend for printing. The quality of your print file is one of the
most important parts of the printing process.

sales until that 30 day window expires and we're certain that the orders won't
be returned. Payments to artists and galleries are made usually on the 7th
of every month after the expiration of 30 days. When there is a sale, the
artist or gallery is notified through a mail or notification on his account. He
is directed to forward a local or paypal account which is equally used for
subsequent payments.. If the artist or gallery choses to be paid by check,
please allow 5 - 10 business days for your check to arrive.
We print on art papers, photo papers, and canvas. Everything we have is archival, including our proofing paper. We have a huge stock of papers and canvas to choose from.
Matt: Great versatile paper that works well with all art and photographic images. It is coated with a slightly stippled texture to give a very natural photographic finish with subtle color
Gloss: The gloss finish accentuates the color to give a punchy rich feel. Compared to the Matt, it gives the image more contrast, glossiness and pronounced color, whilst maintaining accurate reproduction.Flex: This ultra-high gloss paper has a plastic feel with a warm base color, producing luxurious rich colors as well as deep blacks and high visual contrast. Metallic: Has a rich metallic base giving the colors a reflective 3-dimensional feel. High mid-tones and highlights add luminosity and iridescence.
There are two main types of canvasses:
cotton and polyester with variations of each of them. The difference between
them in terms of materials is that the poly canvases are made from plastic
fiber strands, whereas the cotton canvases are made from cotton fibers.
We use Epson K3 Ultrachrome archival inks and the finest acid free substrates. With these, you can be sure your print will last well over 100 years. If your print is framed and hung in a location with no direct sunlight, it will last even longer.
A few factors could hinder verisimilitude of a giclée print with its original. The first factor is that of capture of the original either with a camera or a scanner. Bad capture could produce problems that have to do with clarity. Printing hardware and printing technique could equally lead to a problem with clarity. However, in Goldfingers Images, our knowledge of all the capture processes, not leaving out appropriate base mediums, ensures a very close similarity with originals. You may not be able to tell the differences if we don’t tell you.
Giclée art prints are majorly made from a combo of
high-end printers, cameras and scanners. Giclée art
prints are made with archival inks. Archival inks are inks that are created to
have an extremely long life if properly cared for. Our giclee printing is one
of the best print reproduction methods available. It is a process that uses a
12 color ink jet printer, acid free papers, and pigment based archival inks.
This insures that your prints will never degrade or yellow over time and allows
a better longevity. Giclée printing allows the artist to provide a quality product for their
customers that will never fade. We can also print up to 5ft wide and 100 ft
long with this method, which is great if you are looking for large, high
now, if you sold a piece, that’s it, that art piece is gone! Sad. That means
only one buyer gets to appreciate your work. But with giclée prints, that’s not
the case at all! Not only do you see more reward from a piece you put so much
time and effort into, but you are able to reach even more art buyers who may
have loved the original work but couldn’t necessarily afford it or find it at that
time. Loosely put, giclée printing is a process that uses fade-resistant,
archival inks and archival substrates to print on large format printers. Giclée
printing is often used by artists to make reproductions of their original
two-dimensional artwork, photographs or computer-generated art for resale while
preserving the original.
