Tips For Buying Oil Painting Online: The Eight Step Guide

     Decorating the residential and business premises with oil paintings is becoming increasingly fashionable. So if you are also considering decorating your house with some great art work, you can find a perfect oil painting through the internet. There you can find numerous options of historical and modern paintings, which you can get reproduced for your house. However, while making a purchase, just be cautious about the authenticity of the dealer as well as the painting you order, so that you do not end up buying a low quality painting.

So, when you are choosing the dealer for buying your oil painting reproductions, make sure that he meets most of the criteria (if not all) as listed below.

Ask about the techniques being used Some dealers sell computer printed photos on canvas which are touched up with oil paints. These can never have the grace and presence of the real "stroke by stroke" oil paintings. So, once the company guarantees about the techniques being followed while creating your art piece, it is worth making a purchase.

Ask for the name of the artist There are many known artists who produce paintings for art companies. So if you can get the information about the artists working on your masterpiece, it will be easier for you to make sure you are getting a genuine painting. You can check the name of the artist and reviews about his past work on the internet.

Look for genuine address and contact numbers This applies to any purchase you make online. A genuine company name and address can be verified through online business directories. This might also get you the information about how long has the company being operating.

Make sure that you get a complete painting Some dealers do not complete varnishing and stretch the painting before delivering the order. So, make sure that the dealer commits on delivering a completely finished painting, ready to decorate your house.

Accurate time line for delivering the painting Since the oil painting reproductions require time, it is reasonable if the dealer asks for 10-15 days for delivery time. Even if the time requested by dealer is more, it is essential that a strict deadline is committed by them.

Ask for testimonials Since you are making a big investment without even meeting the dealer, it is sensible to cross check the authenticity of the dealer from every possible aspect. Ask the company for the phone numbers of any previous buyers who can refer the company's name or endorse them.

Check if the website has a secure payment server A simple way of making sure of secure online payment is to check the URL (website address www.) of the payment page. It should have "s" https://www. that refers to a secure payment server.

Option for returning the painting if not satisfied It is a must have feature of online shopping, especially for products that do not come ready made in the market or are not associated with a brand. So, even after scrutinizing the company's authenticity you end up receiving a non satisfactory piece of oil painting, you can ask the company to take back the painting and refund your payment or provide a genuine oil painting.
