Best Sizes For Art Prints
Are you interested in selling prints of your paintings of drawings to supplement your income?
Selling reproductions of your original artwork is an excellent way to market your art business to a broader audience and make more money from an already sold painting.
The first question artists have when they start selling art prints is what size prints sell the best.
What Size Prints Sell Best For Fine Art
Selling art prints is so much more affordable than it was fifteen or twenty years ago.
Years ago, artists would have to invest in a large number of prints with the hopes of selling them so they could make up the money invested and make a profit.

In the past, artists would decide on one or two sizes to sell because of the upfront costs. However, today, artists can offer various sizes without paying anything in advance unless they are getting prints made at a local print shop.
Unless you offer prints you purchased from a printing service, offering several different sizes might be in your best interest.
The only thing you will want to consider is offering sizes that can fit in standard frames.
Standard fine art print sizes:
- 5 x 7
- 6 x 8
Selling Art At Craft Fairs
Selling art prints at craft fairs is different from selling prints on Printful because you will have to invest in prints to display at your local craft fair.
I always offer a few different sizes when I attended a craft fair.
The sizes I offer at craft fairs:
- 5 x 7
These sizes seem to please the majority of the people.
I also offer greeting cards. Greeting cards always do well for me at the shows.
