How to buy prints from Mr Ry-Spirit? (UPDATED)

Journal Entry: Thu May 16, 2013, 8:26 PM





Read below to find out how to buy prints from me!
29th May EDIT: A1 and A2 sizes are now available! as well as shipping price change






Additional information for those who likes to read.
All A3 size prints are in 200 gsm matte paper. All A2 or A1 prints are in 180 GSM bond paper. If there's an artwork you have seen before but hard to find on my gallery cos I got too many artworks, here's a tip for ya, just google it up. If its a Zelda artwork then just type in 'Zelda Ry-Spirit' then look at the google images and see if its there, google is your friend! Or even just type in Ry-Spirit in google to see what images comes up, usually the most popular ones pop up first anyway. please write your address down properly, make sure the address is structured properly so I don't get the states and street names and stuff mixed up, cos I am not from your country and don't know how your country's Adress structure works... so yeah just beware of things like that. Australian residents if you really really want to, you can do bank transfer as well, just include your bank details in the email to me ok? Thanks for buying the prints! I really appreciate this :D

Hello Mr Ry-Spirit. I was thinking maybe in the future I would like to sell prints. Could you tell me some basic information about selling prints such as the price of producing them (also, do you print in bulk or as you go), how often they're sold and about selling prints at conventions? And also about which of your prints sell well and which don't. Thank you. :)

well then! i say everybody is different wen it comes to sales. because art is so subjective. But in general I think just look at your work and think about what you would buy. or look at other people's stuff and see which one you like? Do you like artworks with more characters? Do you like artwork that has a great concept? Do you like artwork that has crazy perspective. Think about what YOU like and put those elements in your artwork. Because I dont think you should draw art to please what people liek, but rather draw art based on what you like, and then in turn hope that people like that too. So you can attract a crowd that has similar taste to you personally. And yes I print in bulks cos I have space at home to store them, hence I print in bulks because its cheaper to do so. But yeah just do one con with a variety of work and see which one sells, thats one thing you need to figure out for yourself so you know what your artwork satisfy what audience.

after looking around, i found this website: www.cmykonline.com.au/A3-Singl… where i could print stuff from. I noticed most websites put anything A3 or smaller under the "flyers" category and anything A2 or bigger is under the "posters" category and also becomes ridiculously expensive. Is there a difference between "flyer" and "poster"? Also, there is an option to make my files "press ready". It costs an awful lot, is it really necessary? Another thing is that you can only print in large bunches. What if someone requests something they want a print of but it's not very popular? In that case would it be better to print with officeworks of something? I noticed your prints have a white border around them. Was this just a choice of preference or is it actually better to do that instead of having the print go to the edges? Also, how big should the size of the picture be for printing? My files are about 5000x7000 pixels. Thanks in advance :) ps, tell me if you cant answer me or want to move this to notes

nah its ok i can reply here. OK yeah taht site seems confusing and havin the flyer and poster seperate seems weird, yeah I guess if anything just go to officeworks. You dont need to do large bunches for them. The white border is because a printer doesnt print straight to the edge. However you can always print it in bigger paper (SRA3 size) and then have them trim it down if you like. But it will costs more money to do so. So the way I see it, the customer can just trim it themselves if they like, or leave it there because then if they wanna frame it up, the frame will have something to grip onto.

I'm thinking of making prints myself. With your experience, how well can you say the print turns out compared to the original, digital image? I've heard it will come out darker, but what's your experience? I noticed your Hyrule city illustrations does look considerably darker in the photo above than on your gallery.

One tip would be to do your work in CMYK from the get-go. If using Photoshop, you can alternatively set it on Overprint Preview (Go to the 'View' drop down menu then Overprint Preview). You get to work with RGB colours but it will view it CMYK mode, that way, if you prefer using an RGB palette, you'll get to see what it'll look like when you get it printed.

A more advanced tip is setting your 'colour profiles'. It's a bit hard to explain but here's a quick synopsis:

Beside the fact that there's RGB and CMYK colour modes, there's also 'colour profiles' which are different types of spectrum. Colour profiles exist mainly for the sake of printing as printers around the world use different manufactured inks from around the world as well (if that makes sense???) So to fully optimise your colours you see on your screen to look as identical as possible when it comes out on print, ask your local printer what colour profiles their printers have. And then, calibrate accordingly.

Hope that helps!

Damnit!!! still waiting for my payday!!!
I really want an A1 badly but I'm not sure if it'll get safety here: Colombia, the other side of the globe. Usually when things get into my country they get stolen by customs department...seriously, what a pain. I'm really in love with the "Caviar Field", hope to get money soon and get my Ry-Print!!! :XD:
