We have added a new section to the home page of our web site: “artist pages”. Go to our web site’s home page and scroll down to the bottom of the page to view our new artist pages. There are several reasons we have added this section. First and foremost, we would like to share the beautiful work all of our clients are creating. Secondly, some of our clients do not have a web site or collection of images online. By having us create a page for you with a link to your own web site or contact information, you will increase your ability for your work to be found on the web. The link that we provide on our web site and the one you create on your web site linking back to our site will be a step towards optimizing your own web site to be found on the web. When you link to a web site that has a link to you it will help your web site rating and help you come up higher on a search list naturally.
We require that any client that would like an artist page to have at least 3 images on file with us that have been Captured and/or Prepared for printing. You must also request that we create you a page. We will not automatically create a page for any client of ours. We will do our best to keep your artist page updated with current work. Please let us know if we are missing any of your work or need to remove any work you do not want on your artist page. There is no charge for the creation and maintenance of these pages. We would appreciate it if in return you could add a link from your web page to ours.
We are sizing the images small and including your copyright so no one can misuse your images. See the sample image to the left. If anyone saves the image to their computer or tries to use the image, your copyright is imbedded in the face of the image as well as in the name of the file. By doing this we are indicating clearly to all that the images are not to be used freely and that there is a copyright holder.
We will provide a link to your web site or include your contact information on your artist page so people can contact you if they are interested in your work. If we receive any contact with interest in your work we will refer them to you (the owner of the images or artwork for which they are interested). One way or another you will be contacted directly if anyone is interested in your work. By naming the files with your full name, anyone searching your name will find these artist pages along with your own web site and anything else about you on the web.
Keep in mind that your copyrights are safe with Old Town Editions. You retain all rights to any work shown on our web site, produced or printed. You must be the owner or have express written consent from the owner of any copyrighted work intended to be printed. The owner of the copyright protected work that we perform is the only person that can approve the release of a digital image or place an order for digital fine art prints.
We will never reproduce any of your copyrighted images without your direct instructions or express permission.
If you are a current client and would like us to create an artist page for you please call Rachel or Pat at (703)684-0005 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
