Professional expecting certain standards from artists, again, at big size companies, companies who manage to develope intellectual property.

I'm not selling prints of my artwork, on business basis, but I did sold few prints of what my artwork, I also always like to have hard copy for my work, it feels like "it was there and now I can touch it, Cleopatra"

Thank you. I also like to see my works printed, though I used my common A4 EPSON with a good quality paper.

I was wondering... Do you get most of your jobs with the paper portfolio, or by website? I live in a city which is horrendously connected and had put great hopes in e-marketing: I hope losing the paper portfolio doesn't close that many doors.

Thats a great quote!

Never underestimate the value of a good print. Prints are going to be in a colour space you have controlled and can lie on a desk from which they will catch the eye of someone passing by. My experience has been that clients and potential clients can get quite fetishlike about prints that they can hold and posess.

Good to know. I'll invest in that printer, then.
