eGift Cards Make a Great Gift for Dads and Grads

The Perfect Gift that Arrives in Minutes!

Looking for the perfect gift for college and high school graduates? Or maybe something for Father's Day? Look no further than Jerry's eGift Cards, the gift you can send immediately online, anytime, anywhere!

 

Jerry's has many products which would be perfect for graduation or Father's Day gifts. However, if you don't know what kind of paints or brushes your graduating artist or father uses, or you're not completely sure what exactly to get someone, eGift Cards to Jerry's Artarama make a terrific gift! Let the person you buy one for decide what they need. They can spend them on college and dorm supplies, office supplies or art supplies. Allow a person to continue creating their art by letting them buy the art supplies as they need them.

 

For fathers, art can make a great gift. Let Dad pick out his own supplies and get creative. Art is a relaxing activity that allows him to express his creativity and spend time doing what he likes. Jerry's has several Father's Day designed eGift Cards too.

For high school grads, a Jerry's Artarama eGift Card is the gift that keeps giving. It can be used to buy classroom supplies like pencils, pens, paper, sketch and note pads and more. Or give your grad the opportunity to continue their art habits with more fun supplies like an easel, paints or pastels!

After college graduation, often the transition from college to post grad life means the loss of free time and a lack of disposable income for things like hobbies and creating art. A great way to combat that is to give them a convenient eGift Card to spend when and how they want it on art supplies. You can even specialize your eGift card by picking out a fun graduate design like those shown above. 

 

Have you ever given art as a graduation or Father's Day gift? Tell us all about it in the comments below. We'd love to hear how art changed the life of someone special in your life!

Art Show Necessities

Preparing You For Selling Your Art At This Summer's Art Shows!

As the summer Art Show season gets ready to start, we want you to be prepared to have the best displays so that you can get your art out there and make some sales. To help you prep, we've designed a list of items that we think will help you stand out from the crowd and display your art the right way!

Display

Does the art show you'll be entering provide you with a tent to protect your artwork from the sun, rain or elements? Tents are a necessity, it provides a space to hang your art, and a place to let potential buyers to view your art close up. Jerry's recommends Insta-Stand Outdoor Structures which includes tents and pavilions with or without walls. They are perfect for providing shade, hanging hooks to display and hang art as well as boast flame resistant materials for emergencies. 

 

As for hanging equipment- we like OOK Gallery Rods and Monkey Hangers. With these, you can hang several pieces of art vertically for a beautiful and eye catching display. Plus, the hangers are adjustable so you can space out artwork of several sizes!

 

Want to make a piece really stand out? Try displaying it on an easel. Display easels can prominently display your art right at the front of your tent or display. They provide a way for your art to really catch the eye of someone passing by. Display easels are also very affordable and easy to travel with and set up. Remember, the easier the piece of art is to see, the more likely someone will examine it closely and gain interest so make sure your best work is prominently displayed. 

For displaying prints, we love canvas print racks. Nothing is easier than lightweight, folding racks that can hold many prints. Let visitors flip through your portfolio of prints and make some sales.

 

Traveling 

Traveling can be particularly tough with artwork, between prints and canvases and supplies, it can be a lot to carry and organize, and store in your tent, display or vehicle. Here are our picks for the right tools that make transporting your art easier

SoHo Boat Bags make transporting everything from paints and pads to hanging equipment to snacks easy. These spacious, durable canvas bags have enough room for all the little things you'll need when preparing for an art show.

 

Moving prints can always be troublesome and without a way to carry many of them at once, but with Picturesque Pro Presentation Cases, you can carry many different prints all at once. They stack and store easily so that you can carry many at the same time. These cases also feature 20 crystal clear pages to protect each print and provide a great way to present your art. 

 

Acurit Mailing Tubes and Colorview Tubes are another great way to transport and ship artwork. These durable tubes allow for paper artwork to be safely moved and great for mailing sold art!

 

Interacting with Customers

One hot new trend at art shows is live painting. With the right travel easel, you can have everything you need and show off your artistic prowess. The Monet Easel with Dan Helsel Box is the perfect way to neatly store and travel with your easel and palette all in one connected box. This is the ultimate travel easel, palette combination that allows you to carry everything at once! Live paintings are incredibly popular right now and having all of your tools, paints and gear. Getting the crowd to watch you work is a great way to draw in interest by passerbys. 

 

 With many art shows coming up in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and more, with the right tools, the outdoor community art show is an amazing way to gain exposure, get your name out there and sell some art. And with the right tools and supplies from Jerry's Artarama, success is practically guaranteed!
