This is a description of the products and services that Art divinity offers customers and collaborators.
Art divinity already has an extensive portfolio dealing with digtal artworks and this portfolio is growing rapidly in order to cover a wider range of products and services. Below we have a list of the products and services that we offer moving forward. We offer a description of the individual products and services, how we operate regarding intellectual property rights and a ballpark figure of how much we charge. The figures stated below are not exact figures and to agree upon a valid deal you have to contact us. Nothing is agreed until Art divinity agrees on the deal. Within these pricing brackets the deals are negotiable unless clearly stated however, we refuse to negotiate below the base rates we have set.
Digital art. (royalty based)
We already have a large collection of digital artworks available for sale through accounts like Artpal and Cafepress.
We have complex works for fine art and canvas prints and a growing collection of more simple designs suitable for clothing, bags and accessories. Those works already available are royalty based through larger sites and generally will all be available for associates to negotiate in terms of royalty deals.
The sites we use already have agreed royalty rates as their company standard. As regards independant business the royalty rates for those works are set between 4% and 8% of net sales depending on the likely volume to reach the market.
A small company that expects to sell under 1,000 units will not be able to negotiate below the 8% bracket. If the product is successfully marketed and more units are produced. Let’s say for the sake of simplicity another 5,000 units then the 8% rate becomes negotiable and a new agreement can be established in it’s place. That seems like a win win deal to us.
For ‘to be produced’ designs different agreements can be made to suit the nature of the deal.
We are open to royalty based agreements set at royalty rates between 4% and 8% of net sales depending on the likely volume to reach the market. However, we do not simply provide a design and hope it will reach the market. All designs produced for clients will involve a non refundable advanced commission fee negotiable between £200 and £1000 per design. This negotiation is weighed against the potential of the deal.
A company wishes us to produce a handbag product with our designs and the number of units expected to sell initially stand at a high number like 20,000 units. The advanced commision fee is likey to be on the higher end since such a company would be mad to only approach one designer. However the royalty fee would lean towards the lower percentage region due to the higher potential amount of produced units. The opposite would be true for a smaller company which produced a lower number of units.
One off commision services on artwork are a service we offer only at our discretion. We are a busy new business and whether we accept such deals will depend entirely on our schedule, since our designer and founder (Richard North) already takes on a 50+ hour working week. For this reason we are only able to offer this service if time permits until such a point that we get other designers on board and obviously then if you prefer Richard to produce the work, it is still time permitting. On saying that, don’t be dissuaded by asking. Richard is more than happy to accomodate individual projects if possible.
Pricings for such projects are as stated.
The cost to produce the work in terms of materials.
The cost of packaging and shipping.
£20 pound per hour labour costs (non-negotiable).
