Painting review settings

1

A painting review happens when an artist completes a piece and it is ready to be shipped.

At this point an email/sms is sent to your customer with a picture of their artwork. If they are happy with it we will ship it to them. If not, they can tell us what they would like changed and we will do it. This process will repeat until your customer is satisfied.

2

If you wish to review the paintings yourself instead of the email being sent directly to you customer, check this box.

3

If we contact your customer (such as in the case of reviews) this is the email address they will see.

4

You can choose the color palette your customers will see when they review their painting. Feel free to set these to your brand colors.
