Many shops that sell stationery material and posters often have pop
Online Third Party Sellers
Just like gift stores are offline third party sellers, many online sellers are also available. These include names like Amazon, eBay etc. You can get a wide variety of options here, and often at good prices. However the disadvantage of buying from such sellers is that the profit goes mainly to the seller rather than the artist. Again, it is difficult to access any personalized or specific works that you may want.
Today there are many pop artists who display their kiosks either in large malls or at other public places. It may be a good idea to purchase from them, as then the profits would all go directly to the artist. Also, you can get personalized works as and when desired. However, on the flip side, these artists being single providers, may not be able to provide artwork within required time frame. Also they would have limited mediums on which they work. If you need plenty of themed pieces, this may not work out for you on the long run.
Here many artists collectively offer a good resource for buying
Online studios are another great option. As online stores do not have overheads, you can expect a better price from such sellers. Also because a team of workers is in place, you can benefit from timely work at good rates. On the flip side, it is important to check out the reputation of such sellers. You also need to ensure that they are not single artists posing as an organization.
While there are many options available, each of these has its positive and negative sides. The best purchase option would thus be a combination of the above parameters. Work with a studio that preferably has both: A real studio and also a website. You can then be sure of its existence and size. While it would be better to work with a local studio (as you can be sure about their size and quality) do not hesitate to try out international names. Just check out their reputation and market knowledge before taking the plunge.
