Art Print vs Poster: What’s the Difference?

I was on Redbubble last night looking at Vin Zzep art prints for a gift.

Then my friend, who I was chatting with on Facebook messenger, asked me about the difference between posters and prints.

My very short answer? Quality!

This post will explain what I mean by this, in plain English (no artsy jargon).

Saatchi Art Review (2019)

Saatchi Art

For many art buyers, Saatchi Art has been such an integral part when collecting art online. It’s definitely one of the best art sites to discover emerging and well-known artists.

This is where I first learned about one of my favorite top-selling artists, Jean-Pierre Kunkel. (Just looking at his oil paintings makes me feel like I have no skills in painting at all! Just breathtaking talent!)

But not every gallery site is the perfect fit for everyone. So, that’s why I reviewed Saatchi Art, in hopes to enlighten you with some of its pros and cons.

Redbubble Stickers Review (2019)

Review

Stickers are a great way to show the world who YOU really are. That’s why I bought this sticker. (It’s SO me. lol)

From showing the world you absolutely LOVE dogs, to making people laugh with “That’s What She Said” humor, you’ll definitely find one just for you.

At the time of writing this post, Redbubble has 52,551 UNIQUE stickers to choose from! I mean, what are the chances that you see people with the same one as you?

But!

Before you buy anything, make sure to read this review. It might save you some headaches later on.

I am very happy with the various stickers I ordered for the water bottles so the preschoolers in my program, some of whom are too young to recognize their bottles by putting their names on them, can all recognize their own bottles. The variety meant all the kids could have stickers they liked and that were all easily distinguishable. They are thrilled.

Redbubble Review (2019)

This is the most complete Redbubble review for shoppers in 2019! Before you buy anything from RB, you definitely want to read this post.

What makes me qualified to write this review?

  1. Experience: I bought my first Redbubble art print by Karin Taylor in 2008, and I’ve been buying stuff from them ever since.
  2. Research: I read 5,871 Redbubble customer reviews online (resources) before I wrote this blog post.

You might have read online reviews about Redbubble.com yourself. And we all know that people have a tendency to complain versus compliment businesses when leaving online reviews. (I’m no exception.)

Complaints from Customers

But that’s good! I love reading negative reviews! Then I know if I’m willing to handle whatever made them complain in the first place.

So, in this post, you might find that I focus on negative customer reviews. But this is to provide you with the information you need if you’re a cautious online shopper like me.

Please Note: Since the customer reviews I read dated back to 2011, I decided to focus on reviews written between 2017 and 2019. This focus will make sure that you are aware of the most current pros and cons.
