A lifetime ago, a business professor told the class that if our slam-dunk idea had no competition, it probably meant there wasn't a market for it. Or worse, that the need was being filled somewhere else in the supply chain. I'm so glad he said "probably" because, well, PrisonArtWare.com might not be seening Google-like growth, but we are growing...and doing it steadily at the rate of 1-3 artists per week; one continent every 18 months. And I'll take slow, steady, and lasting over fast, steep, and flame-out any day.
Our basic services might be equated to our competition's paid services but we can't say that because, well, PrisonArtWare.com has zero competition. It's weird to write it as it is to say it--I'll never get used to it.
This past year, our artists, their friends, family, and supporters have been asking just what our basic services are all about. And while they are enthused about what they hear, they feel like the $19.95 price tag shoe is about to drop. Nope, we're navigating cyberspace barefoot...and have nothing to hide. Free is FREE in our book.
Our business comes from three sources:
- Via a really great lady at "A Book You Want (thanks Barbara)

When our office in Las Vegas, Nevada receives an inquiry via any of those sources, we note the source for compensation puposes, then get to work. The whole process of building a single artist portfolio takes hours but fits neatly into 5 Steps. Take a look:
Once an inquiry is received by be is hand it off to an assigned rep - interns who work for the company Dash or he or she opens all the relevant accounts, your online portfolio, complete with a branded coming soon graphic that lets the website viewers know that John kyudo prison artist will be right along. Entering dendrites an intro, reveals a custom URL cash Josh and tells the incoming artist how they can learn more about Papaw and how they can get their fully executed art licensing agreement required. The note closes by giving the green light to send at least one piece of art, profile picture, an artist bio up to 300 words so they can get their art work safely archived in their online portfolio. This is all free and part of our basic services... And there's more, a lot more.
A week or 3 will pass and the office will either find a letter or email with artwork enclosed or attached, and I'm sometimes I focus forever stamps or check with Paypal payment of $10 - required fee for sending our full color mailing package that since our operating methodology and their art licensing agreement.
This is where everything gets really expensive looking. Were it not for a dedicated interns who literally work on Starbucks and Krispy Kreme salary salaries, You Never Would Have Made It Beyond artist number two. Here's why.
