Types of Wall Art Sold

Art Prints

If you buy art prints from Minted, you’ll definitely notice how high-quality the print and framing is right away.

What’s really unique about Minted is that they only make 350 art prints per size, color theme, and material of a certain design. Once the artwork is sold out, Minted will not release the artwork again. So if you like a print, buy it before it sells out!

When you purchase artwork from Minted, you’ll also receive a certificate of authenticity to ensure the integrity of the edition.

You also have the option of buying art prints with a frame. I find the frames to be made of high-quality materials and I haven’t been disappointed yet!

I appreciated the wide variety of art on the website. It was easy to find things based on art type or colors. The website allows you to select the size you want, and framing options are available. I ordered a watercolor print with a frame. It was delivered faster than I expected and it looked exactly as it was shown on the site. I love it. I will order from Minted again!

Canvas Prints

I was also impressed by the quality of the canvas prints. It has such a nice, high-quality, textured canvas that’s stretched around a sturdy wooden frame. I really can’t complain!

They’re very lightweight compared to a framed print, so they’re easy to hang on walls where you can’t make holes. I just hung up this canvas print on a brick wall using [@@@ tape] and it looks amazing!

Because three prints are so lightweight, I’m also a fan of giving them as gifts for people who have children. It’s definitely a safe alternative to hanging heavier framed art.

But what really makes me happy about these prints are that they are limited editions, just like the art prints I discussed above. It makes the print extra special and increases its value.

If you can’t afford an original painting, these canvas prints really are the next best thing.

Commissioned Original Art

If you’re looking for a specific, original piece of work, then you can also get commissioned art by a Minted artist. You can either ask to get a completely new piece of art or use an already existing piece as inspiration.

Here’s how to get commissioned original art:

  1. Choose an artist who’s available for a commission from this list.
  2. Click “Request commissioned at”.
  3. Complete a short form.
  4. Once you and the artist agree on a price, Minted.com will collect a down payment, which is 50% of the price.
  5. Once you approve the final image of the artwork, you pay the other 50% of the price. The artist will then insure and ship the art to you.

Did You Know?…

Did you know that you can enjoy Minted’s artwork on Samsung’s The Frame TV? (See images and more information on Minted.com).

It’s a Smart TV when it’s on, and Minted art when it’s off!

How cool is that?!!

Framing by Minted

When you buy limited edition art prints on Minted.com, you also have the option to have it framed.

There are 17 frames, with 4 finishes, and 13 sizes to choose from. And I’m really impressed by the quality. I’ve bought 4 frames prints with 4 different types of frames, and they all looked amazing.

Click here to see the different framing options by Minted.

There are 4 real framing options:

  • Float Mounted
  • Matted
  • Full Bleed (Standard)
  • White Border

What I really enjoy is the option to get a frame with UV plexiglass. If your art print is going to be in direct sunlight, I highly recommend getting UV protection to keep your print from yellowing. It also has a non-glare finish, so it still looks amazing when there’s light shining on it.

Return Policy

If you buy art from Minted.com and it’s not 100% to your liking, lost in the mail, or damaged in any way, just let the customer service at Minted know.

I read a lot of reviews, written in 2019, on how customer service would give replacements to orders that people weren’t 100% satisfied without any hassle.

However, I didn’t read any reviews (yet) where customers were given full-refunds. Customers that were given refunds were only part-refunds (like in the area of 35%).

So, from all the customer reviews I’ve read, it feels like Minted is more focused on fixing the order with replacements rather than giving refunds. (But, again, this is only based on the reviews I read. Please remember this doesn’t mean this info is 100% correct or complete.)

As for returns, I didn’t read reviews where the customer mentioned that they had to actually return items by mail to get a replacement on faulty items. All that was needed was a picture.

Please Note: Minted’s return policy doesn’t include original commissioned art. If you’re not satisfied with your purchase, Minted encourages you to contact the seller directly.
