What, How & Why: A Closer Look - Featuring David Bender

At iPrintfromHome.com, we work with artists and photographers from across the United States and Canada. We're inspired everyday by the images that they send to us and by the stories they share.
In our "What, How & Why" interview series, we take a closer look at some of these fascinating people.

We've asked each participating artist or photographer three simple questions:

1. What do you do?
2. How do you do it?
3. Why do you use iPrintfromHome.com?

Please read on to find out more about David Bender.


David Bender
Artist
Chicago, IL

What do you do? 
I'm a digital collage artist, photographer, and collector of photographs from the 19th century. The main focus of my work is creating surreal, digital collages using the people in the photos that I collect. I call it The Forgotten Lives Project (#TheForgottenLivesProject).

How do you do it?
For posterity and out of respect for the physical photographs, I never alter them. I create a high-resolution scan and painstakingly retouch each digital image to remove scratches, stains, and fading. I cut out the backgrounds of the portraits and combine them with objects and elements that I've photographed and digitally cut out. I piece them together to create mini, surreal worlds that I hope take the viewer to another place and time.

Why do you use iPrintfromHome.com? 
The quality of their giclée prints are amazing. It can be hard to find a place that is consistent, has great customer service, great prices, and great quality prints. iPrintfromHome.com offers all of those things and I'm never let down.

iPrintfromHome.com in the News


“Few industries have seen such sweeping disruption in the digital age as photography, whether it's Kodak film reaching near obsolescence or cameras being replaced by iPhones. But the Campos Group is one photo-based business that has successfully made the transition.

The Campos recently talked to The Buffalo News about how one simple change boosted sales, why they take same-day orders as late as 6 a.m. and what you should be doing with your photos that you probably aren't.”

Rachel Bingaman
Painter
Grovetown, GA

What do you do?
I create heavily textured contemporary landscape paintings using professional grade oil paints and gallery wrapped, deep profile canvas.

How do you do it?
My paintings are vibrantly colored and sculpted with impasto. My original oil paintings can be found in Laguna Beach's Pacific Gallery; have been featured on an NBC TV series; and appear in "The Custom Art Collection" which is a book of prints from top artists. My works are also internationally collected and can be found in private collections all over the world. In my paintings, I seek to merge modern minimalism with vibrantly textured dreamscapes. I aim to express nature's beauty with exaggerated intensity.





Why do you use iPrintfromHome.com?
I use iPrintfromHome.com for a variety of reasons! The quality of the prints exceeds any other company I've tried in the past. The team at iPrintfromHome.com is able to effortlessly capture the thick layers of texture from my original paintings. Also, the vibrant colors I work in are transferred perfectly onto each print. The customer service is consistently exceptional and I love that they drop ship to my clients for me. iPrintfromHome.com has allowed me to expand my business beyond original art.

What, How & Why: A Closer Look - Featuring Kailey Lang

At iPrintfromHome.com, we work with artists and photographers from across the United States and Canada. We're inspired everyday by the images that they send to us and by the stories they share.
In our "What, How & Why" interview series, we take a closer look at some of these fascinating people.

We've asked each participating artist or photographer three simple questions:

1. What do you do?
2. How do you do it?
3. Why do you use iPrintfromHome.com?

Please read on to find out more about Kailey Lang.


Kailey Lang
Illustrator
Oakville, ON Canada

What do you do?
I am a Canadian illustrator, primarily working in traditional media to create paintings. Being inspired by nature, my work involves flora and fauna, occasionally with a hint of fantasy or macabre. I try to use colour,
composition and atmosphere in my pieces to create a feeling of "odd quiet" or "calm" (but I'll leave it up to you to decide whether I'm actually successful at it!). I also do some hand-carved printing work on fabric or paper, and sewing, but certainly painting and illustration were the genesis of those interests!

How do you do it?
I start with several small thumbnails sketches, until I think I have the general idea and composition I want. Then I work on a larger rough sketch, and transfer the final line drawing to the watercolour paper to prepare to paint! Occasionally I work with watercolour or acrylic paint, but my main loves as far as materials go, are Acryla-gouache and 300lb Hotpress watercolour paper.

Why do you use iPrintfromHome.com?
Being that I work on watercolour paper, (which is similar in texture to the Somerset velvet paper), I was so set on offering archival prints with that lovely texture that brings out the quality of the original painting. I tried several local printers who offered giclee, all of whom I was not very impressed with. I was referred to iprintfromhome.com by another seller on the Etsy forums, so I gave them a try. I found that both the quality and price of the prints from iprintfromhome.com were far superior to that of the local printers. In addition, any time I have had any questions regarding my orders, or a new order, I have always found Sarah to be incredibly hospitable, professional and speedy in her replies. I could not be happier with the service, and customers are always happy with the quality of the prints!

Please read on to find out more about Nancy Quiaoit.


Nancy Quiaoit
Galt, CA
What do you do?
I'm a artist residing in northern California. I've always loved fantasy which shows in my work. My artwork has been displayed in galleries, movies sets and in businesses national
ly.  I also work for the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission as a teaching artist.

How do you do it?
I create textured paintings which require many layers of paint.  They are done on stretched canvas. Images begin with an idea and develop as I'm painting. I love watching a painting come to life and getting lost in the process. My favorite tool to work with is a palette knife.


Why do you use iPrintfromHome.com?
I use iPrintfromHome for many reasons. First, their customer service is outstanding. I trust and depend on them, which is essential for my business. They use quality materials and ensure each image is reproduced correctly. Most importantly the colors are vivid and the images are clear. The image quality is simply consistently outstanding. They also drop ship art prints directly to my customers. Their packaging is done well and protects the artwork. And they have very reasonable shipping prices. I consider iPrintfromHome a printing partner. They are not just a service I use when necessary.

Please read on to find out more about Aja Trier.








































Aja Trier
Painter
Scotia, NY

What do you do?
I am a full time painter in upstate, NY. I am most known for my Starry Night meets pop culture work in palette knife painted oils, but I also create mixed media work that I regularly show in galleries across the country. I sell the lion's share of my work via prints on Amazon and Etsy.

How do you do it?
Frenzied creation from a spare bedroom turned studio in
my home. It's complete chaos, but from the chaos comes something beautiful. The Starry Night pieces are created almost completely with palette knife and thick, undiluted oils straight from the tube. The mixed media pieces always leave resin globbed up on the table and glitter all over the floor. It's a magical mess.

Why do you use iPrintfromHome.com?
I was drawn to them because of their location first and foremost - I have family in Kenmore, NY where they are based so there is a local feel to working with them, one small business to another. Then of course came the prints themselves, which are consistently high quality and loved by my customers.

I have been using iPrintfromHome.com for over 10 years at this point, and the biggest factor has been their stellar customer service. Two years ago I went viral with my work, and since then we have had days where I was placing 300 orders for drop shipment directly to my customers and not once have they fallen behind. Everything is always sent within 24 hours (I use photographic prints exclusively.) I can place orders up to the morning hours, and those same orders will go out that day. The packaging is professional and secure. If a client contacts me to say a package has been damaged, iPrintfromHome.com replaces, no questions asked, and sends tracking for everything. In the past month I have drop shipped over 4000 orders with iPrintfromHome.com - and I couldn't ask for a more smooth experience considering the madness. I honestly wish all companies were this on the ball and I look forward to working with them into the future!
