If you’ve been looking to get some photography prints done, you should do so right now because Artbeat Studios is having some great sales.
If you’ve never heard of Artbeat Studios before, they are one of my go-to printing companies for finding high-quality prints that are actually affordable. While it is easy to find photography prints on sale, many of them feature a less-than-stellar make. Believe me, I’ve tried just about every large printing studio in the United States.
What makes Artbeat Studios so different is that they offer every type of print you need, including acrylic prints and large-format prints, and they only use the best materials and hire the best customer service reps.
World-Class Customer Service

I hate working with companies that have crappy customer service. This goes for every company that I shop with. But, when I’m talking about companies I have to work with for my job, I absolutely cannot work with companies with poor customer service because that will always end up affecting the way that my clients see me.
After having an especially terrible time with the customer service representatives at another printing studio, I finally decided to try Artbeat Studios a few years ago after having heard about them from a friend.
Not only were the customer service representatives at Artbeat Studios about ten times more responsive, but they were actually able to fast track the print that the other studio messed up for a client of mine, which helped me maintain that client to this day.

Artbeat Studios customer service hours are 6:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday through Friday. You can either call them, text them, email them or submit a contact form on their website. They seriously make it so easy to get in touch when you need to.
Plus, as a sort of extension of this amazing customer service, Artbeat Studios offers a 30-day satisfaction guarantee. This means that if you get your print and it isn’t what you expected, you can get a full refund.

While I obviously appreciate high-quality prints, I often find myself choosing between getting really great prints and getting them quickly enough.
With Artbeat Studios, you really don’t have to make any sacrifices since they list their current production times on their website. For instance, if you were to order a print right now, you should expect it to take between 5-7 days to create. Plus, if you need a faster production time, you can buy a production guarantee for an additional fee.
Since they are shipping all of their high-quality prints from California, it takes them between 1-5 days to actually ship your print to you.
Once you’ve ordered, you will have access to real time order updates via their online chat or phone/email support.
Since I live in California, I was able to get my last metal print five days after I ordered it. Given the fact that I told my clients it could take up to three weeks, this was definitely a nice surprise for them. I hope none of my clients ever have to wait three weeks for a print ever again.
When I’m buying high-quality prints for myself, I usually don’t care so much about the turnaround time on them. I’m far more interested in getting a print that is going to last forever, since I want to pass down all of my work to my son and hopefully to his family after that
Artbeat Studios claims they have high-quality prints because they only use the best materials for them. If you opt to buy a metal print, they use Chromaluxe aluminum to build it, which ensures that your print will last a lifetime. All of their metal prints are also heat infused, which means that your image will last 2-4 times longer than more traditional metal prints, even when they are placed in bright sunlight.
Conversely, if you’re going to opt to buy an acrylic print from them, you can expect a print built out of archival metallic photo paper. Since it is archival, this is the same quality of photo paper that is used in museums and professional galleries. The ink that they use to print your image features the same archival quality.
And, if you’re going to opt for a canvas print, it will get printed on a white poly-cotton blend canvas that is additive-free and agent-free.
It’s not just the materials that make high-quality prints, but the love that goes into them. Every single person that works in the Artbeat Studios lab genuinely cares about their job and the quality of the products that they’re creating.
Each acrylic print that comes out of this lab is face mounted onto the acrylic, which ensures that your print is more vibrant and features a higher resolution. Each metal print is created with a heat infusing technology to, once again, preserve the color vibrancy and resolution.
Don’t spend your hard earned money anywhere else.
