I hate that I am expected (by the owners of the forum) to remove others links if I suspect it is advertising...but I do understand because there are paid advertisers. I checked the below link and could see where it gives helpful information and it is not attempting to promote any business so I consciously did not remove the link.

It's this kind of thing that really makes me want to give up the moderator position but it seems I'm the only moderator left. If anyone else is interested in being a moderator please message me. How about you @Liz? I'll gladly give you or anyone else the moderator hat.

Sorry Terry, didn't mean to make light of your moderating, I know it must be unpleasant to delete or edit others' posts, I use to run a Chihuahua forum and I quit.

A couple of thoughts here.
Photographing your artwork is one way to go. There are large flatbed scanners that can digitally reproduce your work better than any photo for good reproductions. The initial work is a bit pricey depending on the size of the work but you can't match the quality.
As far as trying to start a business that way, may I make another recommendation. Get quality paper for your printer and make postcard or greeting card sets and try to sell them in stores or online. Let the public get to see more of your work at a more affordable price before you go for posters, canvas reproductions or any other expensive method.
As far as printing goes, Lithography is a form of printing/reproduction that you can consider where your poster sized copies on decent paper can cost under $2.00 a copy and if you have to buy 200 to get that price because they only litho in quantity then heck consider how many copies you get for that money than with a canvas copies. The cheaper your cost the cheaper you can sell the piece and make more money in the long run and get more copies of your work out there.
Good luck. Post samples of your work.

I sold stuff from my Boomer nostalgia site with Zazzle. Then I started uploading my art images there. Turns out they are a paranoid bunch, and won't allow any likenesses of people who might possibly object. That goes to descendants of deceased individuals, as well! And since much of my art at the time was of pop culture figures, that meant most of it was disallowed. So I closed my account and suggested they seek medicine for acute paranoia.

I now use Red Bubble and Fine Art America. Red Bubble makes all sorts of t-shirts, perfect for my portraits. Fine Art America makes a basic tee shirt as well, but every sort of art print you can imagine, including printing on metal plating.
