creativehub: Sell Art Prints , 83 reviews
I installed the app, but had issues with creating and deleting projects and products. I tried both Firefox and Chrome and ran into the same issue. I would not recommend the app at this time.
This would be a dream solution had it not been for the company's extortionate shipping fees outside of the UK. To send a print abroad costs as much as the actual print (around £25-£30). They strive to be carbon neutral by using companies like DHL GoGreen and Green Courier, which is very commendable, but they will lose a lot of customers who simply will not or cannot pay this much to ship a piece of printed artwork. When their competitors do this for a fraction of the cost there's no contest. On top of that, they charge 20% extra for their dropshipping service. We would have to charge between £85-£100 per poster in order to make any profit. With prices like that we could simply not compete with our competitors. I really hope this company will reconsider their shopping fees and let their CUSTOMERS choose which shipping option they prefer to use.
Hi DIRT & GLORY,
Our print prices are lower than competitors who make Fine Art products. The thing is that we are not a poster printer, we make fine art prints. There is a huge difference in quality between posters and fine art prints. I understand if you sell posters that fine art printing would seem expensive to you, but it makes no sense to compare our prices to the prices of a completely different product.
Also your quote of our delivery costs is not accurate, and not extortionate. We use express couriers only to countries where delivery would otherwise be slow and would impact the brand of the artists who we fulfil for. Those artists do charge the right prices for the original creative and distinctive art that they create, and their margins are excellent, and they get lots of repeat business because the delivery is reliable and fast.
It just depends what area of the market you exist in. All areas of the market are valid but it is a bit naive to expect every company to cater for your area of the market and to criticise them inaccurately when they don't. We are predominately a social commerce agency catering for rising star and established artists on Instagram and other social media and we make products that fit their end of the market.

p.s. We are 100% carbon neutral, since 2019. Again, the brands of our artists matters. Their work should not have a negative impact on the planet. This does not affect our prices, we pay for this out of our margin
Installed the app to my shopify store, created an account, tried uploading files on multiple occasions and it didn't work. Not sure what I did wrong, but I uninstalled because couldn't even get past the setup point.
Hi Megan, I have checked your account - the issue is that your files are corrupted thus we cannot process them. Please contact customer support on firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help guide you.
Seemless!...ive now spent alkl day trying to order tetst prints...no one answers the phone and the online helps takes hours to answer? So I still havnt managed to order as the system says there's an error call us. Not a great experience at all so far, which was not waht I expected?
Die App zeigt meine Produkte nicht an!!! Ich habe ein neues Produkt erstellt kann es aber in der App nicht hochladen, weil ABSOLUT NICHTS angezeigt wird, außer den zwei Worten 'PRODUCT LIST'. Meine anderen Produkte sind in meinem Shop aber wie gesagt, die Liste ist leer!
Hi Claudia. I am sorry that you were experiencing this issue. You will see it is now resolved. We made some improvements to our import process in creativehub which allows you more control over variant, product and batch importing. These updates needed to be reflected on the Shopify app side which is complete.
This app, in theory, provides a really great service! Fine Art printing and a global shipping solution for artists with Shopify stores. The printing quality is really great and the flat fee global shipping is amazing!
However, the app itself is buggy and will without doubt corrupt your store. By duplicating products, re-ordering variants, proliferating "broken image" thumbnails throughout your catalog and not updating basic changes (like new paper sizes, prices, and editions), this app will keep you busy all day just trying to clean the mess. And then, to add insult to injury, it will show random products as being Sold Out (which isn't great if your objective is to sell these products!) Basically, any change you make within the app will trigger a destructive knock-on effect in your store. The technical support is poor and under-resourced so don't expect any help when you need it (and you'll need it a lot).
It's a great shame that not enough resources have been allocated to the development and support of this app as I believe it has (had) massive potential.
My advice; stay well clear of this app until at least the next version (or ten) rolls out. It's simply not worth the headaches.
sorry we were having some issues, we have fixed all known bugs now, so if you could please retry we are confident you will be happy.
I am very frustrated with Creativehub. The new shipping prices are exorbitant. I find it an impertinence to charge almost 30.00 € for a delivery of less than 500gr within Europe and then tip you to offer free delivery in your store. How can you make money with it, especially if you are not yet so well known and can not charge high prices for your art? I have never experienced such high shipping costs for anything I've ordered within Europe. In addition, certificates for limited editions come without authentication holograms although this is described on the certificates. After contacting customer service, they said that there are none available at the moment. I would expect at least to be informed about that or that the text on the certificates will be corrected, so that customers do not complain when getting their artworks.
Hi Matthias, I am sorry to hear you are disappointed. Please allow me to clarify some incorrect remarks:
Our dropshipping shipping costs to Europe are between €6.95 - €15.00 for print only orders - this is a flat rate regardless of how many prints are in the order. For framed items, shipping costs to Europe starts at €14.13 going up to €91. Please keep in mind this accounts for delicate wood frames with glass sized at 841x1189mm. These need to be very well packaged as they are fragile oversized items. All frame deliveries are also shipped via DHL express courier arriving in 1-3 days.

As others here have noted, the art here is very unimpressive. Do better. Also, the app is buggy. I made numerous failed attempts to upload different sizes and file types of logos, none of which were accepted, and a useless cryptic error message was given. The tech support department wasn't much help either. We're moving on to greener pastures.
