The Benefits of a Hartford Fine Art Membership

At Hartford Fine Art, every customer is important regardless of how much or how often you purchase from us. We want you to feel as comfortable with us and our staff as we do with you. So unless you call after hours, you will always speak to a knowledgeable professional who can answer your framing, product or business questions. We value your comments and suggestions because this is how we learn what our customers are looking for. Sure, accolades are always great, but we consider constructive criticism a way to make ourselves better and more responsive to you. In addition to having over 97% of what we sell in stock, we strive to get your order out to you quickly, even if you are ordering custom products. But did you know there are even more advantages of doing business with us?

Quicker Checkout:

When signing in as a member, your shipping information is automatically populated in the shopping cart. There’s no need to fill out the order form every time you order.

Advanced Notices:

Members receive advance notice of new product offerings, product updates and sales and special events. Unless you choose not to, you will receive notices of unpublished sales and specials designed and directed to members only.

Hartford Fine Art Free Freight Program:

At Hartford Fine Art, one of the ways we help you keep your framing costs down is by offering free ground freight on frames sizes 24×30 and smaller whenever you place a web order of $300 net or more. And unlike some other companies, this includes orders from all of you living in Alaska and Hawaii, too! We don’t believe you should be penalized just because you don’t live within the continental U.S. So, keep this in mind when ordering. Depending upon where you live, it could amount to the equivalent value of a free frame, or more!

“Framers Points” Program:

Don’t forget, as a purchaser of Hartford Fine Art products, you are automatically enrolled in our “Framer’s Points” Program (unless you choose to opt out). There is nothing additional you need to do. Every time you order from us, we keep track of your sales. For every dollar you spend with us annually, you earn one “Framer’s Point.” When you accumulate 750 points or more during the calendar year, you will receive a Framer’s Points Coupon worth one percent of your annual sales total at year’s end. For those accumulating over 1500 points, the Framer’s Points Coupon is worth two percent of your annual purchases. These coupons may be redeemed over the next 12 months on future purchases. Remember, “Framer’s Points” are cumulative so buy more, get more!

Free Professional Magazine Subscriptions:

In any profession, you want to keep on top of your industry, knowing about the latest trends and techniques. Hartford Fine Art maintains a close relationship with two of the largest and most popular publications among artists, American Artist Magazine and Southwest Art Magazine. Both of these publications offer comprehensive, well written articles on art business, industry trends, technique and much more. In addition to our Free Freight and Framers Points programs, if your net purchase amounts to $350 or more, Hartford Fine Art will send you a card for a free subscription or renewal to one of these publications (your choice). Just fill out the information on the card and return it to us with your subscription or renewal choice and we will take care of the rest with our compliments!

Art Biz 101:

Members have access to our growing reference library of business articles and lectures geared to help make you more profitable and successful in your business. Topics from pricing and marketing your work to approaching galleries and art consultants are covered, plus we will take input on what you would like to hear about in future articles. (Coming in Spring 2010.)

Receive our Newsletter:

As a member, unless you choose otherwise, you are automatically placed on our e-newsletter list. Our e-newsletters are sent to you every 3-4 weeks and contain timely information on art industry trends, business and marketing information for artists, links to sites of interest, new products and much more! Most contain one or more product specials or special promotions which will help lower your costs of framing and supplies.

Annual Cost: Absolutely Nothing!

These are all included in being a member of Hartford Fine Art. Thank you for your loyalty, patronage and helping us to be one of the largest supplier of frames and supplies for artists.
