Buying art prints and posters online has changed our perspective towards owning art. The buyers have got the choice to select the art, get it printed on the desired finish, decide the type of frame and get it delivered direct to their homes and offices. Buying posters online not only saves your precious time from visiting the stores but it also gives you a wide range of the designs depending upon your needs, likes and requirements. The buyer must make sure that the online seller clearly states that the authenticity, quality and genuineness are guaranteed. You must look out for every sign that confirms that it is truly a genuine poster and not a copy of the original without copyrights i.e. an unauthorized reprint. You can also use catalog’s description to check the distinct features associated with the poster. Once you did all the required research, you’ll be able to easily examine the originality of the poster. Here are the things to keep in mind when buying posters online:

Paper sheets which are used in making posters

High Gloss: The high gloss paper contains the largest and vibrant color range for. It is suggested not use too much glare for places with bright lighting.

Semi-Gloss: Largely used sheets for posters are paper with decreased gloss.

Matte: These types of sheets have the least sheen from both of the above and below and the paper grain is very airy. It is ideal for walls that witness maximum sunshine.

Big or small online stores

The benefit of buying from ecom giants is that the delivery process may be very smooth. The downside is that these giants go for a general taste, which leads to limited designs or even repeated designs. The chances are you might spot the same image in a different frame in your neighbor’s house because they also found that piece on the big name. Skill is yours to identify rarity.

In contrast to this, the not-so-big websites that specialize in posters keep coming up with new designs and ideas. Art is the only thing that they deal in and the possibilities of running into the same poster in every other house are few.

Other things

Size: Pay attention to the size of the frame. Smart photography can make big things look small and small things look big. Do not buy a poster until you know its exact dimensions and hooks.

Price: When buying a reprint of a renowned art, check for the copyright as well as compare the prices with other online stores. Second-hand reprinting can ridiculously damage the image quality.

Frames: See if the website offers you the option to add your wall’s picture and then virtually place the frame in that. Augmented reality apps can be very helpful. You can also try different frames for the same poster.

Lastly, you will somehow know what suits best for you. Trust your instincts and try to go for original art as far as possible. Genuineness is incomparable to any other quality in the world.
