Clear Bags for product storage and display.

I love using the clear bags for my prints, aceo cards, and paintings. You can get the bags with hangers, so it's easy to display your work at shows. The work stays clean and protected. The bags are tough, and remain clear through many display setups and take downs.

The bags give a clear visual presentation of your art, no matter how you use them. I like placing smaller paintings inside these bags when I ship the paintings. Your customer can open the package and see the painting while it remains protected.

The clear bag company is very easy to work with, I've called support there and found them very helpful in determining which product would work best for certain needs.

A great marketing website.

This site is new, put together by two artists who've been making a living with their art for years. And I might say, a successful living! Steven Filarsky and M Theresa Brown, have put together a website with many resources for artists to use.
