Frequently Asked Questions

 

Why is Artenchant unique?

Artenchant was formed to fill the void in the luxury market for high quality hand painted artwork on merchandising. Very few companies can claim hand painted on their products and those that do are not 100% hand painted. This is where we are different. Our work is 100% hand painted by highly skilled artists. We are one of the only companies in the world who have the expertise and can rightly claim that our work, from preparation to final polishing is all done by hand

How can you benefit our company?

Our services can benefit most companies who are looking to appeal to an affluent and appreciative market. Based on previous experiences, companies who have used our services have seen profits increase by almost two and a half times in large edition series.

We manufacture products for the luxury market and would like them hand painted, what do we do next?

First of all contact us to discuss the product and the artwork. For a minimal price we can paint a prototype, lacquer and polish it. It gives the manufacturer an idea of what the finished product will look like. Usually the manufacturer sends us the base product. For example, in the case of pens, the manufacturer will send us the pen body and caps. We will paint the art work, apply the finish and send them back for assembly.

We haven't the product but would like to have something to offer our customers?

It’s not a problem, we are able to source high quality merchandising through our contacts

What about one of a kind pieces!

We also accept one of a kind commissions which are especially popular with companies looking for unique company based presentation gifts, events, exhibitions etc.

We have products that are finished but we would like artwork applied to enhance them. Is this possible?

This is a possibility but it really depends on the product. If you contact us we will be happy to discuss this with you.

Will it be an expensive process for me to have my products hand painted?

No it is not an expensive process. Of course the price is based on the complexity of the image and time involved. Remember, our artists are highly skilled and can achieve high quality artwork in a limited time period. When we are talking of high volume orders the costs involved are reduced considerably because the paints can be premixed and reference tracings can be reused in the painting process.

How is the artwork protected?

All the artwork leaves our studio with multiple layers of a highly durable lacquer in a polished finish. In all the years we have been trading we have never had a return due to faulty workmanship. Hence the reason why our work comes with a lifetime guarantee.

With the economic climate the way it is, there will be less demand for luxury merchandising and companies will be tightening their belts. Is this true?

There will of course be a decline in demand; this is the time when companies will be competing against each other for a share of the luxury market. It is also a time when companies will be looking for an edge and something unique to offer their customers.
