What is Blink Art?
A subsidiary of Art Design Consultants (ADC Fine Art), Blink Art is a multi-media promotional platform that assists artists with gaining large-scale, targeted exposure to the nation’s art sourcing professionals through our print art sourcebook Blink Art Resource, online art marketplace, and gallery partnerships.
Why a print catalog in a digital age?
Blink Art Resource is quickly becoming the go-to resource for professional buyers. Why? The sourcebook saves professional art buyers time from sourcing artwork from multiple venues, by providing them an annual curated guide for finding a client and/or site-specific works of art. It’s a one-stop catalog of professional artists from all around the nation that have been hand selected to guarantee it is a collection of the most talented and professional artists available.
What is your success rate?
We’ve had great success involving Blink Art artists in current and upcoming projects! Over 2000 works of art have been sourced since the first edition in 2015. From the print publication, online representation and through shows, Blink artists are sourced for projects by our extensive list of art specifiers daily.
I love the idea! Can I sign up next year?
Why hold off on another year of continued success? It is always best to get rolling now so you can reap the benefits starting now! Signing up now guarantees that you will receive a two-year price fix. Check out the other amazing perks you’ll receive as a Blink Art artist.
What are the costs involved?
There are fees to have a page in the book and they vary depending on the promotional package you select (digital only, half page, full page, two pages). This fee makes it possible to print, publish, distribute and market an exceptional catalog that has a readership of over 50,000 art buyers.
COMMISSIONS / SALES
Will Blink Art take a commission on my sale?
As a Blink Art artist, you are able to pick the representation to best suit your business model. The Blink Art Resource trade book empowers and provides the tools for artists to establish their own relationship with buyers through direct channels. Designers and art buyers contact artists directly to source and procure art, of which Blink Art will not take a commission. Yes, that's right, you get to keep 100% of all sales and commissions generated from the catalog.
DISTRIBUTION / PROMOTION
Who is the catalog sent to?
We distribute 10,000 catalogs across North America annually. Blink Art Resource is in the hands of over 50,000 interior designers as well as architects, facility managers, gallery owners, art consultants, purchasing agents and art dealers.
How do you find the recipients for your distribution list?
No list buying here. Our list of designers is thoroughly vetted, and hand selected by our team. Each year we refine the list to ensure that the recipients of the catalog are actively using it to source artwork for projects.
How do you promote the book and my art?
It's not just one and done. We don't just send the book out and cross our fingers people are using it. We work hard marketing your work year-round through strategic multi-channel marketing efforts such as digital, print, industry events, gallery shows, social media, and blogs. This keeps you and your artwork top of mind for art buyers when the perfect project comes along.
