THANK YOU
FOR BEING HERE.
LET US INTRODUCE OURSELVES.

The Weekend Type is a company driven by an
artist with a mission to make more art, support
and encourage artists of all ages, provide community,
and leave something beautiful behind in the world.

 
 
 

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

01. community

Our focus is to nurture a growing creative community for The Weekend Type Curated Artists, as well as foster the art loving community around them. We want to bridge the gap between artists and art enthusiasts, making the works accessible to all through our curated print shop. Art is meant to be enjoyed on all levels, so let’s get more art into more hands, get to know each other, and grow together along the way. What do you say?

02. curation process

The Curated Artists and their works here are all hand-selected to create a cohesive, curated gallery in which to shop. The works displayed within our shop are not meant to be the result of a popularity contest, but rather, the result of the artists having a unique voice, perspective, or creative process. Our artists are here not only because they’re amazing at what they do, but because they value their craft, quality products, community, and they want to give back through art.

03. young artists

We know the value of encouraging artists from a young age and have committed to use this platform to do just that. Every quarter, we post an art challenge for our young artists to participate in and submit their work. The winners from each challenge will be highlighted in our shop and be able to earn money for college through print sales.

04. intentional giving

The impact we can do together is so much greater than trying to do it alone. That’s why we’ve committed to giving back 5% of the net proceeds to different charities chosen by our guest curators. We are grateful to be here, stand with our artists and products, and feel it is our duty to use this platform for the good of others in the process.

 

 

ARTIST COMMUNITY

 

Our mission is to nurture a growing creative community for artists, art lovers, interior designers, home stagers, realtors, kids, friends, families, and those who have a curiosity about what it looks like to live a life fueled by the creation of art. We share stories, studios, encouragement, resources, tutorials, and anything else you can think of that relates to creativity and living a life fueled by it.

Additionally, if you’d like to nominate an artist you’d like to see in our Curated Artist community, please use this form.

curation process

The Weekend Type is a shop that supports artists of all ages, and is created by an artist. The artists and their works in this shop are all hand-selected to create a cohesive, curated gallery in which to shop. The works displayed within our shop are not meant to be the result of a popularity contest, but rather, the result of having a unique voice, perspective, or creative process. We are excited to share the artists, their stories, and their works here on this platform through their artist pages, blog interviews, and the gallery itself.

QUALITY STANDARDS

What is Giclee printing?

Giclee (pronounced Gee’clay) printing is the method of choice for all art prints here at The Weekend Type. Giclee is a French word meaning “to spray or squirt,” which is how an inkjet printer works. The printers we use to create these archival prints are much larger and more detailed than a standard desktop printer. This type of printing is the best way to create archival reproductions of artwork and uses not only quality archival papers, but also special light-fast inks that will last a lifetime.

Our paper

All art reproduction prints are printed on a certified archival textured cotton rag paper and is acid-free. The textured paper we use gives the prints the authentic look and feel of watercolor paper, while providing a rich surface for vivid details and color reproduction.

All photography prints are printed on an archival matte paper that supports accurate color reproduction and high-contrast, high-resolution output.

Caring for your art prints

As with all paper, moisture can do damage it, so preventing your art print from being exposed to any moisture is ideal. If water comes in contact with your art print, please note that bleeding of the inks may occur. Handle with care.

young artists

We know the value of encouraging artists from a young age and have committed to using this platform to do just that. Every quarter, we post an art challenge for our young artists to participate in and submit their work. The winners from each challenge will be highlighted in our shop and be able to earn money for their futures through print sales. It’s a way to get more kids making more art, and just diving straight into the process together.

GIVING BACK

The impact we can do together is so much greater than trying to do it alone. That’s why we’ve committed to giving back 5% of the net proceeds to different charities chosen by our guest curators. We are grateful to be here, stand with our artists and products, and feel it is our duty to use this platform for the good of others in the process.
