What about Copyright?

Who owns the copyright of the art you copy?

Art House makes no claim to any copyright when we reproduce your art, the digital file is yours to do whatever you need. It is your art.
If you are not the artist of a piece, then we will require proof from you that either the artist has given you permission or you have made some other arrangement, like purchasing the copyright, before we proceed.

While Art House does retain a copy of the master digital file for the purpose of printing reproductions of any orders you place, we will never reproduce your art without your prior express permission to do so (eg, Sales through We won’t even post an image on Facebook without your permission!

Can I take my files elsewhere?

Sure – they are your files! We provide you with a link to download your files once we’ve captured them and it’s then up to you to store them safely.
We recommend you make multiple copies, store on a hard drive, in the cloud and at another location for complete safety. We will be your fourth back-up plan in that we always keep multiple copies/backups here and offsite ourselves.
We don’t lock you in to printing with us, you can print with whoever you like. We will however do everything we can to keep you happy so you keep coming back – does that sound fair? Anybody can print images for you but if you are loyal to us, we will go above and beyond for you!

How large can you print?

There are a few things that determine the size of an image and how large we can print…
  • The printer
  • The width of the media available
  • The quality of the file itself.

Our printers are 152.5cm wide (60″) and most of the media we use is available to this width. Most rolls are a minimum of 40ft (12.2m) long. So, technically, we could print a 5ft x 40ft print!… Read More

What makes a File the Right Size for the Job

The Information on this page is designed to help both artists and Art Competition Organizers determine the ideal image specifications for print or on-screen viewing. The first thing I want you to remember is that there is no such thing as a “High Resolution File” – this is a misnomer. The correct term is APPROPRIATE RESOLUTION! If someone simply asks for a high resolution file they really have no idea what they are talking about and you need to ask more questions!… Read More

Photographing your own Art

‘ve had quite a few clients come in recently who have photographed their own artwork and been a bit disappointed when I’ve explained a few problems they have with their files. I thought I’d share with you a few important points to keep in mind if you want to copy your own art. Firstly let’s understand one thing – it takes a lot more than a ‘good camera’ to copy a piece of art. Just like it takes more than owning a good oven to cook a great meal. There is a set of skills, knowledge and other equipment required to blend together the ingredients and end up with something edible… or in our case, printable! Secondly, you need to understand why you want to photograph your own art. Is it to create an image you can use online or do you want to print saleable reproductions from it? The first is easier, the second needs a lot more effort. So, let’s look at the equipment first… Read More
