Can monotypes, photographs or archival pigment prints be used for the exchange? Yes!
Where on the print do I sign and edition? Prints should be in a closed edition of 6. The edition number is put under the plate/block impression to the left, with optional title in the middle, and finally signed on the right along with the year number.
Do you take a commission from print sales? No, but we do take a small fee to cover our e-commerce fees and taxes (2.9% + $0.30)
Why does it cost money to participate? It takes a lot to keep Lunch Money Print moving, and your registration fee goes towards purchasing the print exchange shipping tubes, storing artwork, covering shipping costs, and professionally photographing your artwork. We greatly appreciate the support. As an artist, make sure to write this expense off on your taxes at the end of the year!
Who pays for shipping of artwork from the artist to Lunch Money Print? The artist covers shipping to the shop, and we recommend sending the work in a tube, with glassine in between each layer.
What happens if the prints are lost or damaged in the mail? Mail carriers often come with base insurance of $50-$100. Artists can put additional insurance when shipping to Lunch Money Print in CT, but it isn't required. Only the person who sent the package can file a claim with the mail carrier. If the prints arrive damaged in Connecticut, Lunch Money Print will notify the artist. In the event of a damaged or lost box of 6 prints back to the artist, Lunch Money Print will offer a refund to the artist, as the limited edition prints can’t be replaced.
What if my edition won't be ready in time for the mailing deadline? Email us ASAP at ruby(at)lunchmoneyprint.com to figure out if you can still be a part of The Exchange. In many cases, we can make it work, but there is unfortunately no guarantee.
Am I able to get a refund if I don't mail my edition? Lunch Money Print reserves the right to not refund participating artists.
What type of print media is allowed? We aren't picky! All forms of printmaking are allowed except for prints that are 3 dimensional and would harm others during shipping.
Artists have used the following mediums when participating in our past exchanges: Lithography, Etchings (wet and dry), Monotypes, Archival Pigment Prints (photography), Silkscreen, and more! See our gallery for more examples.
Are photographs allowed? Absolutely! Archival pigment prints (like digital photography) and silver gelatin prints (film photography) are accepted.
