We offer a onetime size replacement of same Apparel & Art type with a size of your choice. Although this time we would expect you to go through the Size Table of each Apparel type before confirming a onetime size exchange for a correct fit. 

Can I choose a different Artwork during replacement? 


Artists are involved every time an artwork is printed, hence we cannot offer a different artwork during replacement due to damaged delivery or quality & fit issues. This makes it fair for an artist and also protects their interests, reputation, and artwork copyrights.


Does the color of actual product match exactly with what’s shown on screen? 


All the mock-ups of artworks and products displayed on website are computer generated and thus minor color variation in the actual product when compared to various screens on which artwork is being viewed is very natural. Moreover, various products with similar artwork could also show slight color variance due to the property of surface, the artwork is printed on. Having said that, do not expect a vast color inconsistency as we take most care in ensuring profiling & managing color gamut of each artwork being printed on demand giving true art reproduction.

Oh yes we love to have bulk orders from awesome people. We have supplied several of our products as a Bulk Supply and loved the immense affection shown in return.

How do I start uploading Art on Inkalabh?


Click on the Add button on My Art & Products Tab in your Artist Dashboard. You start with Wall Art as your primary products for which a High Resolution artwork file is required in free size & ratio. While the High Resolution file being uploaded goes through a process of size & base price calculation you can start to feed in Artwork Title, Keyword Tags, Artwork Description, Subject Categories and then your own Mark-up % you want to earn. By clicking on Submit & Save, the artwork goes live on Inkalabh. The same high resolution file uploaded by you is used to print the artwork when a confirmed order is placed by a customer at Inkalabh.
 

How can I sell products at Inkalabh?


Once Wall Art is submitted you need to add desired versions of same artwork to sell as various products. For your gorgeous artwork to be printed on those remarkable products, we require the same artwork files to be resized in fixed Pixels for accurate printing, mock-up generation, & display on Inkalabh. Since products shapes are final it is your artwork that needs to be resized in 1300x2000 Pixels JPEG, 3300 x 5100 Pixels (preferably PNG), 4600x3000 Pixels JPEG & 4600x2000 Pixels JPEG such that it perfectly fits around the product while printing.
 
 

What file format should I use when uploading images?


Your images need to be saved in RGB, Abode RGB color space. While JPEGs are best image format, for apparels we recommend a PNG file that has its transparency turned ON so the background white is not printed onto the apparel. We do not accept TIFF, GIF, CDR, PSD, PDF format. We also request you to keep the size of the image less than 35MB.
 

How are Retail Prices & my earnings decided?


It is you the artist who decides the MRP & Earnings for each artwork & product by adding your desired margins on Base Price.  Base Price is the basic cost of creating a product with your art on it. Artist earnings are added over and above the base price by you in % terms. Inkalabh gets this amount out of the entire sale which also includes our margins. Upon this very base price you enjoy complete liberty to add a desired mark-up % which you as an artist get as earnings. The sum total of Base Price & Artist Earning is added with Transaction Tax which forms the Retail Price of the product. E.g. Base Price is 500 + 10% Artist Mark-up  + 8%  Transaction Fee  makes the equation 500+ 50 + 44 = INR 594.
 
 

Can I edit my Mark-Up % on every product?

Yes you have complete liberty to edit Mark-Up% on each artwork or product types as and when you may like. The changes shall instantly have an effect on the Retail Price of the products being shown to the user.
P.S. Even Base Prices are not fixed and could be subject to changes as and when we may feel necessary.
 

Who prints ships & co-ordinates with the customer?


We use the High Resolution files uploaded by you to print process and craft your art into a product as and when an Order is confirmed by a customer.  It is our job to handle all order related queries, printing, manufacturing and shipping while also coordinating with the customer as you sit back and work on your next masterpiece.
 

I made a Sale; When & How do I get paid?


Earnings for confirmed orders are shown as pending in your Sales & Purchase history page, and fall due 10 days after date of delivery. This buffer time is to account any cancelled or returned orders. All due earnings are cleared in 7 working days via NEFT for Indian and PayPal for artist outside India.  We request you to kindly keep the Banking Details form duly filled for us to make seamless payments.
 

What about My Artwork Copyright?


Ownership of your art work always remains with you.

There is complete liberty to choose what products you wish to sell your art as, along with percentage of mark-up you wish to earn for as much time and quantity as you may like.

How to track my Sales?


On the Artist Account visit Sales & Purchase page which gives details of each artwork Sold along with its Order ID, Date, Payment Status,  Order Status & your individual earning. All these are real time data and thus not all Sale History can be termed as confirmed orders since Cart Abandonment, Test Orders, Wrong Address Inputs, Suspicious IP, Incomplete Payments, Red Flagged Payments, Disapproved COD, Cancelled Orders and Delayed Payment can result in us not processing an Order.
 

Can I buy my own stuff?


Yes you can buy your own stuff while also ensuring you do not have to pay for your own margins. At the cart your own margins are deducted from the total of the products. We are already associated with several artists who make use of our printing setup and expertise to get their hands on remarkable products printed with their art on it. We are anxiously waiting for you too to start buying your own artworks from us in future.
