Pro Art Mall, LLC, a company offering products and services to the digital imaging industry, is proud to announce the launch of Artloadz.com, a new website offering digital print-ready art, illustration and photography in a downloadable format. All Artloadz content is created by an in-house creative team that also specializes in customer requested art creation and alteration; a practice not offered by traditional royalty free or micro-stock services.

“We developed Artloadz out of industry demand for affordable, high impact images with little or no restrictions on use,” says Artloadz Creative Director A.J. Wood, “everyone is getting into digital imaging. We see it with work-at-home desktop publishers and small print shops all the way up to mega wide format printers and the largest ad agencies. A growing number of these businesses rely on outside sources for their image needs. They either hire out to expensive photographers and illustrators or succumb to pricey and restrictive licensing which is the norm with most stock agencies. On demand printing has really tightened the noose on budgets and turn times, leaving print providers scrambling for an easier path.” Wood understands user’s frustrations in finding usable images with liberal terms. “We basically took everything that drove us nuts about acquiring images and tried to develop a solution to those problems. We wanted something better than clipart, less expensive than royalty free, and more productive than working with the flaky artist next door. We also wanted users to have the freedom to print our images on products they could sell in unlimited numbers without having to ask for our permission.

Visitors to Artloadz.com will find scalable vector artwork and photographic imagery, along with the featured print-ready fine art that sets Artloadz apart from other image providers. The Artloadz creative team hopes to see artistic images replacing tired, overused and all too common stock photos. 

 

Artloadz images and services have found favor in several industries that rely on digital printing. These industries include quick printers, desktop publishers, sign shops and billboard advertisers. Other image users such as advertising agencies, book and magazine publishers, interior designers and manufacturers of retail decor, apparel and gifts are enthusiastically voicing their support for the Artloadz creative approach.

“We’ve only scratched the surface of where we see Artloadz going” concludes Wood, “but it’s a scratch that is soothing a long standing itch in the marketplace.”

Partners of Pro Art Mall Paul Whitehill, Mary McPherson and A.J. Wood also own Images In Tile, LLC along with Bison Coating and Supply, based in Joplin, Missouri. Images In Tile is one of the leading manufacturers of custom tile, stone and glass murals and has been in operation since 2002. Bison Coating and Supply has been coating tiles for the sublimation industry since 2003.
