Business Story

Why this business was started

This art and photography business was started because of the passion of its owners in the visual arts. This site was a spin off of a site that was sold by 2+ years ago.

The reason of selling this business

I semi retired in the fall of 2019 and fully (95%) retired in 2020. My wife and I are now focused on photography and grandchildren. After 40+ years being self employed we have little interest operating a business. The price for the website is for the website itself and the digital photography and art work included in the sale.

What's involved in running this business

Currently we contract out all canvas printing. We assemble, package and ship orders in house from our home. Orders can be dropped shipped by a supplier if a buyer chooses. That would likely cut into the margins but allow more time to marketing. While we have a large collection of images, we would recommend to continually add new images to the site. Knowledge of Shopify and Photoshop (or other editing software) would be necessary.

This business was founded: over 5 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 4 hours per week

Other details about profit: We average 60%+ gross margin. We have generated several hundred thousand dollars of sales in the site that was sold and outside of Shopify over the last 5 years. We have generated sales with Amazon, eBay, Houzz, and Etsy that were included in the other company's sales. Since retirement we have discontinued all of the 3rd party promotions. Art shows are also a large potential for business as is wholesale sales art galleries and gift stores but since retirement. Please note that all future sales and profits are dependent on your ability to promote and market the business. You are buying the website and the artwork which has taken over 2,000 hours to of efforts to create.

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    Social Media, advertising, affiliate marketing and email should allow this store to grow substantially.

    Skills to have

    Other than operating a Shopify store a good eye for photography and art would be a plus. Some exposure to photo editing software like Adobe Photoshop would be helpful. If you do not have these skills we would be happy to provide training or you could contract out.
