Have you ever been at an art fair or tradeshow and wanted to be able to hand a prospective buyer a "menu" for your artwork which shows all of your available products, sizes, and prices?
Now you can!
Each time you upload an image to Instaprints, our technology automatically creates a PDF sales brochure for you.
You can print the PDF brochures using your home printer, take them to your local print shop for a more professional look, or just e-mail them directly to prospective buyers.
If you assemble a few individual PDFs together, you've got your own ordering catalog!
Have you ever wanted to offer a special discount to potential buyers?
With a few simple clicks, you can pick a discount level (e.g. 25% off)... set an expiration date... and then generate your own discount code.
Then, all you have to do is spread the word. Post an announcement on Facebook... post an announcement on Twitter... create a beautiful e-mail using our e-mail feature and send it to your friends, family, and past buyers.
Discount codes are a great way to generate interest in your artwork and attract new buyers who may have been hesitant to buy from you in the past. They also provide a great excuse to do a little marketing and self-promotion.
If you're looking for an easy way to promote yourself on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, your blog, your website, or your e-mail newsletter... it doesn't get any easier than this.

All you have to do is (1) select one of your images... (2) select a print size... (3) name your price... (4) set the quantity available... (5) set the expiration date... and start selling.
The whole purpose of these promotions is to allow you to offer your artwork for sale at a discounted price... increase your visibility on Instaprints... add a sense of excitement to the buying process... and, hopefully, increase your sales!
