"I am an aspiring artist. Do you publish|
artwork? How do I go about promoting my
artwork on Christ-Centered Art and the
We do not publish artwork; however, we
actively promote Christian artists through
Christ-Centered Art as well as the
Christ-Centered Store. To learn more,
please read about our Artist Package.
"Do you have a printed art catalog?"
Due to the large amount of images we sell
as well as copyright rules, rapidly changing
inventory, and to keep your prices low, we
currently only have an online art catalog.
You can view our expansive online catalog
by clicking on artists or art categories.
You may also view new releases by your
favorite artists as well as our top sellers.
"Do you sell wholesale?"
For art galleries and bookstores with a valid
tax ID number, we offer a 20% discount on
orders over $100.00. Restrictions include
Thomas Kinkade artwork and all secondary
market (sold-out) pieces.
"What is the difference between a regular
signed & numbered print and an artist proof?"
An artist proof (noted by the abbreviation
A/P) is identical to an S/N print with one
exception. There are fewer A/P prints,
making the print more collectible than the
standard limited edition print. Both editions
are signed by the artist and include a
certificate of authenticity. Read more about
this on our Terms and Definitions page.
"Do you have print titles not listed on your
As you browse through our individual artist
pages, you might find that a particular print
is not listed under the art print titles. If this
is the case, please contact us, since we
might have access to that print and it may
have been inadvertently omitted.
"I see a print listed under the art print titles,
but why doesn't the link show me a picture?"
Just because there is not a link to a page
with an image, price, and print description
does not mean that we do not carry that
print. It simply means that we currently do
not have a scan of that particular image to
show you. Simply contact us to check on
the print's current pricing and availability.
"Are art prints a good investment?"
Yes, for the most part. However, you must
note that like any other commodity, there is
a supply and demand rule to follow:
If the supply of a limited-edition
print is low and the demand for
that particular print is high, then
the value of the print will go up
substantially once the print sells
out from the publisher.
On the other hand, there is a
chance that a particular print
can decrease in value. This most
often occurs when there is a low
public demand for the image or
when there are too many prints released by
a publisher, resulting in a flooded market.
The golden rule in art investment is to buy
something you really like and enjoy looking
at everyday. Then, if the print goes up in
value, you have an added bonus! Since art
is a universal language, there is always a
tremendous interest. Therefore, for the
most part, art is a good investment.
"Do you sell any Thomas Kinkade limited
editions besides Standard Numbered and
In addition to the very popular S/N and A/P

Publisher Proofs (P/P), International Proofs
(I/P), Renaissance Editions (R/E), Studio
Proofs (S/P), and Master Editions (M/E)

pricing and availability of these editions.

"How do you describe the print dimensions?"
Our prints are sized first by height then by
width. If a print size is listed as 16" x 20",
the image is 16 inches high and 20 inches
wide. The size listed is usually the image
size; however, please be aware that some
sizes are listed as "framed size" or as "print
size" (which includes the white border
around the image).
"What forms of payment do you accept?"
We accept various types of payments.
Please visit our Payment Options page
for more information.

carriers and shipping costs, please visit our
Shipping Rates page. We gladly ship most
items to any destination in the world using

"What is your return policy?"
For detailed information regarding returns,

"Do you allow layaways?"
Yes, on most prints we can work out a
30 to 90-day layaway to work with your
budget. For detailed information regarding
layaways, please visit our Layaway page.
"What if I can't find a particular print?"
Let us know of any Christian art prints you
would like to purchase which are not listed
on our website through our Print Locator.
"Are your prices listed online final?"
The prices listed on our website are not
necessarily final. Due to the constant
fluctuation of the print market, print prices
and inventory can change rapidly. You may
find that a price has gone up, or you might
even find that a price has gone down.
You can find out more about availability and
pricing on our Gallery Disclaimer page.
"How should I handle my giclée?"
Your giclée on paper or on canvas is very
delicate and completely intolerant to water
and moisture. It should be handled as
carefully as you would handle an original
watercolor, taking special care to avoid
any contact with water or mist.
Please make certain that your hands are
clean, dry and oil-free before touching it.
(Perspiration on your hands or fingers will
damage the image.) As with all fine art
reproductions, please hang it in an area
free from strong light and humidity. Handled
properly, your giclée will provide many
years of pleasurable viewing.
"What if my question has not been answered?"
If you did not find the answer to your
question on this page, please feel free to
e-mail us for a personal response.
