Art Envy Cafe prides itself in providing artworks by independent artists that are not mass produced. While many of the artworks for sale on AEC are not originals or Limited Editions, they are still highly unique and exclusive to our site. The end products we choose to offer are professionally produced, the highest quality we can obtain, yet still financially attainable.
Our artists are not employees, nor are they bound to sell ALL of their work at AEC. However, we DO require that whatever artworks an artist offers for sale at Art Envy Cafe, is only sold here and no where else. When you make a purchase from Art Envy Cafe, you can be sure you are getting an exclusive, high quality artwork that is only available here. Additionally, you’re contributing to the support of your favorite artist so they can keep making the art you love.
For artist, we understand that limiting your sales channels is risky. To compensate for this risk, we charge more for art, and we compensate you better than many other marketplaces. Please see our Artist Information page for more details.
NOTE! While we would love to have an Artists’s work exclusive forever, that’s just not realistic. Each artist has to decide how best to sell their work and Art Envy Cafe is just one option. This means that while you may purchase an exclusive print from us today, you may find that same artwork for sale at a mass producer’s website in the future. Unfortunately, we have not control over this. If you have questions about how an Artist intends to handle a particular artwork in the future, please contact them directly. You can find their contact information on their Artist Profile page.
Below is our general policy on Exclusivity. Please contact us or the Artist with questions or concerns.
The artwork offered for sale at Art Envy Cafe, is not knowingly available for sale by any other vendor at the time of purchase, with the exception of the Artists personal website (if they have one). We do not ask our artists to take down artworks for sale from their personal website.
When an Artist chooses to sell a particular work on Art Envy Cafe, the Artists agrees to an initial period of exclusivity defined in their sign-up agreement. When this period is over, the Artist has the right to remove the specific artwork at any time from Art Envy Cafe and place the artwork for sale with other vendors.
The Artist is not obligated to sell ALL of their work on Art Envy Cafe, or use Art Envy Cafe as their ONLY marketplace.
The artist MAY NOT have for sale, or have displayed for sale, any specific artwork on Art Envy Cafe AND another vendor’s website or retail establishment at the same time.
All artworks and digital copies of artworks are the property of the Artists and are used by Art Envy Cafe upon written consent by the Artist. Artist may withdraw consent within the limits of their Agreement with Art Envy Cafe. All digital copies of the artworks will be returned to the Artist or deleted upon the completion of orders already in progress.
Art Envy Cafe reserves the right to terminate agreements with any artist at its discretion if the terms of this policy are violated.
