Finally we have a decent home! More then decent actually, it’s the best name for our market! Whenever the current update is finished (I am at the mercy of our web developer), our site will be relocated to hawaiiart.com. I am sure no love will be lost on our old URL. It served us well but so long and thanks for all the fish. Too much “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” sorry.

We partnered with a commercial hospitality group yesterday. Best in the state I feel. We now have the support of a large scale design team out of Oahu. We and an international graphic design company (who has decided to go into the giclee business) have teamed up to support each other. I am going to promote this in press release next month but I figured if any of you needed this service, it’s now available. This also means that if somebody sees your art on or off of our website and wants to use it in a 200 room hotel that requires fire code and spec framing, we are your solution.

Hawaiian Art Network was made for artists in Hawaii and we are going to be emphasizing that fact. We are no longer accepting mainland artists and the artwork must be printed or created in Hawaii. We love our mainland artists and will be grandfathering you in but if it starts interfering with our business as we promote the “Made in Hawaii” side of things, we will have to let you go. It hasn’t been a problem before but local legislation focusing on Hawaii products, and the BBB here look strongly on these things and most importantly, we don’t want to mislead the customer. This is also an issue for our some of our partners who need the art to be local only.

We are launching a new super high tech phone system next week. No seriously, when anybody calls our toll-free number, it will give them the choice to dial the artist’s last name and be connected to you or your representative. If you don’t answer, the phone system will retract the call and pass it on to us, or will take a message which will then be emailed to you!!! YES THAT IS AMAZING.

Framing

In addition the high volume commercial framing I mentioned earlier, our new venture specializing in conservation and museum quality framing is almost complete. We expect this service to be available July 1st and will be promoting it actively on the website. Eventually full framing and art integration will be achieved letting you point to one location where your customers can get a completely finished product.

We are going to give you total control of your art. This means that you will be able to add, delete, and edit items as you see fit without waiting for our review. Since Hawaiian Art Network opened every single artist has been honest, forthright, and professional. Because of this we have decided to open our doors to you. You will also be able to create discounts, run specials, and edit your artist pages. This is in the current update but has not been completed as of yet.
