Frequently Asked Questions About How To Use My Website:
Use the following short instructional videos to learn how to unlock the full potential of my website -- Store, recall, manage and share your favorite images with the photographer or others; Learn the various ways to order your image products and configure their options in the shopping cart; And learn how to share your shopping cart with the photographer or others, with statements or questions before completing the transaction.
How To Manage And Share Your Favorite Images:
Did you know that you could mark any and all images of mine that you enjoy as favorites? This is a great feature so that you can not only add and save your favorite images for easy recall later, but can also share the set of favorites with me, the photographer, along with some text notes about questions or comments. Not only that, you could share your favorites with anyone you choose - friends, family, etc. This feature helps facilitate better communication and collaboration with the artist and/or your friends about your favorite images that you are considering purchasing. View this embedded video to demonstrate the full capabilities of using the "Favorites" feature at John Morey Photography.
How To Order Open-Edition Art Decor & Other Gift Products:
In my open-edition collections, each image should be enabled for ordering. If it isn't please let me know, I would greatly appreciate it. This imagery can be used to print on giftware, like mugs, mousepads, i-Phone cases, etc., or traditionally printed on various print mediums, such as paper, canvas, and metal. There are two main ways to order, depending upon your preference, each offering different advantages.
1) You can purchase an image through the image's buy button on the image page, which is an automated configuring and ordering system with my web-platform's integrated art print vendors. There is a quick-list of popular mediums and sizes on the side for easy selection, or you can browse the catalog of various products offered, which display the giftware type of products as well.
For me, the upside is this process involves little or no time on my part, and the downside is that for the privilege of a hands-off automated print-on-demand system, I allow the web-platform to take 10% of the sale, so I make less. For you, the upside is that you can order something quickly without having to work with me and my many more options and choices, plus you have a great deal of giftware* to choose from. The downside is that these approved integrated vendors offer significantly limited traditional print mediums and sizes compared to the choices of working directly with me and my non-integrated vendor's offerings. If you are at all unsure about about how you configured your shopping cart and have any questions, please share your shopping cart with me along with your questions...see the last section in this guide.
*Please note that all giftware products are available only though this automated mode, and none further are available from working with me directly and my non-integrated partners, although I'm always open to special requests.
2) Don't see a traditional size or print medium you had in mind with my integrated automated printing partners, or prefer higher grade art materials and options with my personal assistance (including framing)? Simply reach out to me directly through my contact page, or through sharing your favorites with me, along with a note as to what you are looking for. For the privilege of working directly with me and my expanded offerings from non-integrated printing partners, outside of this automated order system, you will roughly pay the same amount overall, except I'm not giving 10% of it away to my web-platform.
How To Order Limited-Edition Fine-art Collectibles:
In my limited-edition collections, I do not allow automated ordering, because each purchase is always different, requires more hands-on work, and pricing depends on multiple factors, some of which change on me regularly and are out of my control. Rather than give you a cumbersome ordering system that would be overloaded with too many options, many of which you may not understand the benefit of, I instead choose to give you a personal tailored experience...It's simple, just contact me. Either through the 'Share Favorites' mechanism described above, or by the 'Contact John Morey' page, accessed from the header menu on any page.
I will then provide a personal touch to understand your needs, and discuss printing and display options for the space in your home or business that you wish to fill with my collectibles. My limited edition fine art prints are available as one-of-a-limited-edition, and often the Artist's proofs are still available for a higher premium. Depending if you are interested in the Artist's proof, or one of the rest in the limited edition, as well as how many prints are left before being sold-out can affect the price as well. Lastly, as a means of trying to provide affordable options, I provide my limited edition artwork in one of several mediums, from the most luxurious and sophisticated acrylic, to sleek vibrant metal, to rustic and classic canvas, down to stunning traditional paper prints, but that doesn't mean every medium is the best for that particular image or your display environment...let's discuss.
Once I understand your needs and you are confident in your purchase and what to expect from me, I will then create your own password protected space on my website with the collection of your favorites, or just the image you want to move forward with. I will then give you an invoiced quote with billing and payment options outside of the website. Once payment is received, the order will be processed.
How To Share Your Shopping Cart Before Final Purchase:
Very similar to the way you would share "Favorite" images with the artist or your friends and family, the John Morey Photography shopping cart also has the robust feature to be shared -- either to me or your friends. This is a very useful feature if you got all the way to the shopping cart with your selected images and products, and then wanted to stop and make sure you have everything correct before continuing on to shipping and payment. Please understand that once you submit and pay for an order, I have limited ability to alter or fix an order before it is sent along to my chosen vendors for fulfillment. If a mistake is made in your order selection and payment, before I approve the order and send it along to the fulfilling vendor, I can easily cancel the order for you, so that we can recreate the order again properly, but wouldn't be much easier just to email me the cart for a final review before you pay? If a mistake is made at this point, I can easily fix your shopping cart for you and email it right back to you with the changes for your final review before finishing the transaction. When you click the link of the new shopping cart mailed back to you, with your permission it will simply replace whatever current shopping cart you have saved with the new one. Take advantage of this powerful feature before you make your purchase if you have any question or concern all. No instructional video exists for this process, but the following steps are simple and intuitive:
