Fostar Art FAQ / Help Page
How does this membership work?
Join the membership by simply clicking the membership button on the Karenahuja.com website. Click on the Fostar Art tab. You will receive a welcome letter that explains what you need to do to get access to the closed Facebook group. You will receive another email with your Dropbox link. The membership is monthly and renews automatically on the start date.
You will have access to training materials for licensing, opportunities to be included in the Fostar portfolio. This portfolio is shown to retailers who sell wall art décor. There are also opportunities for coaching and business plan development.
Please review the member’s agreement to review your commitment and what services you will be receiving.
Are there additional costs involved in this art licensing opportunity?
As in every business, there will be costs for creating your product. You will need to have a DSLR Camera (24 megapixels), photo editing software and supplies to create your artwork.
What kind of artwork can be submitted?
This art licensing opportunity is for the wall décor artwork only.
How can I be successful at this?
First! You have something that most artists don’t! Your images will be seen by the retailers!
Understand that licensing is a numbers game. The more images you submit that meet the inspiration guidelines and file creation guidelines, the better chance you will have to license your work.
Can I quit at any time?
Yes, I promise this is NOT group jail. There is no contract! Quit anytime, but keep in mind you’ll need to give us 48 business hours before your payment renewal processes to cancel your membership.
Do I still own my artwork?
Yes! You still own your artwork. You are only selling the right for a retailer to purchase a certain number of copies to be reproduced. You can still sell your originals. You can even sell reproductions on your website, Amazon and other selling platforms. You are only limited in selling to other art agencies.
Do I need to sign a contract?
No. There is no contract to sign when you sell your artwork to a retailer. When we send your invoice to the client, you are agreeing to sell a certain number of copies to a client for an agreed upon price.
How do I know if I sold a painting?
When one of your paintings is selected by the retailer, I will send you a copy of the invoice sent to the retailer.
How do I submit files?
You will be sent a link to Dropbox for your file submissions after you have joined the Fostar Facebook Group. You will need to send a large Tiff file and a small jpg file. Do not worry if you don’t use Photoshop. This is part of the training that is included in the membership
Is there a commission?
No. Foster Art does not take a commission on sales.
How much money will I make?
Honestly, this is going to vary. We will talk about this in the membership group in more detail. It is going to depend upon you. You have one advantage over other artists! Your work is going to be seen by the retailer in the Foster Art portfolio that is being shown to retailers.
Example: Earning depend on the size of the piece and the number of prints purchased. You will make on average .40 to 1.50 per print. If the client purchases 100 copies, your sale is small. If the client purchases 1,000 copies of a large piece, you have a nice sale. And YES… they do buy thousands of copies.
How do I get paid?
When you sell a painting to a retailer, you will receive a check from the wholesale company who made the sale. Foster Art will take care of the invoicing. This is included in your membership fee.
Can I do one on one coaching with Fostar Art?
Yes! I would love to work with you one on one to look at your business plan and provide coaching. Additional information about coaching is in the member’s section of this page.
What if I haven’t sold a painting yet?
Fostar art wants for you to be successful. We can look at your business plan to determine whether licensing is the best option for your business. With one on one coaching we can also determine if there are any things we can do to increase your success in licensing. Please contact through my website at Karenahuja.com to set up a consultation appointment.
Can I work with another agency?
Yes. You can work with another agency. We simply ask that you do not send an image to another agency that you have sent to us. If you send the same artwork to multiple agencies, you will be removed from membership.
What happens to my images if I leave the membership group?
Foster art will delete any images that you have submitted unless they are part of the Foster Art portfolio. If you sell an image and you have dropped out of the group, you will still be paid!
I don’t live in the United States. Can I still participate?
There are two things you need to consider:
- You can still join the group. You will pay the membership fee with a credit card. You will have access to training and opportunities to sell your art to US national retailers.
- Payment is tricky. You will be paid with a check from the Wholesale company in USD. You will need to consider the fees from your bank and the time it takes to cash a check from the USA in your country.
