How to Make an Invoice

Hello Artist!

Congratulations on making that sale!!!

Once you have sold your work, you’re going to need to collect the funds for it. So, here’s a quick video explaining what goes into sending an invoice. There’s no use in shipping or releasing your work to your collector before being paid. If you bought an outfit at a store, you’d pay for it before wearing it, right? Same goes for your artwork.

When you send your invoice enclose it with a note, via email or snail mail, that reads something like this:

Dear Collector,

I am so delighted that you acquired “Title of the Artwork”. Enclosed/ Attached is the invoice. Please let me know once you have sent the payment and I will send/release the artwork.

Best,
Artist

Don’t forget to also update the Terms of the Sale - on the bottom of the invoice. This is where you explain when you need to be paid and how.
