1. How do I choose my artwork?

Look for an artwork that is meaningful to you and your kid. Artwork with more potential are those which have only one element because it stand out more. If your artwork is a composition, try to choose the most relevant element. If you are not sure, give us a call or send us a picture for a free consultation.

2. Are there any specifications for the artwork?

I love my Kids’ Art accept any flat artwork in any condition that is made on paper. Artwork created with solid objects like macaroni or wads of tissue will not lie flat in our scanner and won’t convert well. Also, fabric paints and some metallic markers will not reproduce well. Light pencil sketches won’t show up, so try to use black permanent markers. Artwork on lined paper will not be accepted. The larger size we accept is 11.5″ x 17″. If your artwork is larger than this, a large Size fee of $12 will apply.

If it is possible, you or your kid can trace the element with a fine point black permanent marker. By doing this the element will look sharper and stand out more (see gallery for examples)

3. Do you make retouches to the artwork?

Yes, we will remove the background, fix any smudges, and enhance colors to create a professional looking piece of art: a Masterpiece!

4. Do I get my original artwork returned?

Yes, you will get your original artwork back with your order.

5. Can I upload my artwork?

Yes, you can scan your artwork and use the upload option in your “Order Form”. Just be sure to scan the artwork at 300 dpi resolution and save on a .tiff format to ensure good quality.

6. What if I have a special request?

This is what we call Premium Customization. If you want a special background and/or treatment for your artwork or to group in one piece up to 4 artwork please contact us by e-mail or phone and we will be happy to assist you. A fee of $75 will apply for Premium Customization.

7. Do I get a proof of my product?

Yes, after we complete the enhancing of your artwork, we will send you a digital proof via e-mail for your approval.

8.What about colors?

Your final product colors will be very similar to the original artwork and background you choose, but please keep into consideration that they could  be slightly different from the colors you see in your monitor.

9. What is Giclée?

Giclée (pronounced zhee-clay) is a term created by a printmaker in 1991 based on the French verb “gicler” which means to squirt or spray a liquid. Giclée has come to mean any high resolution ink-jet print produced on large format printers from a computer generated file. Giclée art reproductions may be printed on canvas or paper.  Giclée fine art printing provides a luminosity and brilliance that represents the artist’s original artwork better than any reproduction technique available today.  Combined with the finest quality canvas and inks, giclée reproductions rival original artwork in beauty and detail.  Giclée art prints have become the print method of choice for professional photographers, artists, publishers of fine art, and museums who demand high quality reproductions.  Prominent art museums such as the LA Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the Guggenheim, Smithsonian Institute, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art have hosted exhibitions featuring giclées. We specialize in museum grade canvas printing and your kids’ artwork can be on it!

10. What is the return policy?

We are committed to customer satisfaction. Since all of the products are custom-ordered and you have the option to approve a digital proof, I Love my Kids’ Art does not accept returns after your proof’s approval and does not issue refunds. If a defect in materials is evident, the item may be exchanged for one identical item.

11. What if I don’t like the digital proof you send me?

If you don’t like the digital proof, please let us know the reason and we will happily make any necessary changes to your piece. Changes are limited to background color or style with our designer’s recommendation.

12. How much is shipping?

Our shipping rate is $4.95 for up to 2 sets of Note cards and $14.95 for poster prints and canvas up to $250.00. If your total order is more than $250.00 shipping is free.

13. How does the donation of my kid’s artwork work?

I Love my Kids’ Art is committed to help find a cure for cancer. We think kids can help too with their artwork. You can send your kids’ artwork to I Love my Kids’s Art to be part of our program “Kids’ Art for The Cure”. We will select those artwork that have more retail potential to be transformed and printed on different kind of products to be sold in our store or participant stores.  I Love my Kids’ Art will donate 100% percent of the profit to recognized cancer foundations to help find the cure. Learn more..

We are now in the process of setting agreements with cancer foundations. We will disclose the name of these foundations once the agreements are finalized. Meanwhile, don’t wait to start donating your kids’ artwork. We are working on growing our program and we need you.

14. How do you choose the artwork for the program?

I Love my Kids’ Art will select artwork that can attract the attention of customers. Artwork with more potential will be those that are visually clear, bold and vibrant. Artwork with licensed characters will not be accepted for our “Kids’ art for The Cure” program because of copy right reasons.

15. What benefit will children receive from donating their artwork?

The best thing we can give you and your kids for donating your artwork is the feeling that we can all be part of helping to find the cure. Teaching them that we can help using our talents and be recognized by that. I Love my Kids’ Art will also send you a 4 x 6 print of your transformed artwork as an appreciation gift.
