Artspan, already the leader in providing customized, self-managed websites for artists and artisans, is excited to announce new, cutting-edge features that make it even easier to show and sell artwork online. Providing a simple and affordable means for artists to have elegant, full-featured, e-commerce enabled websites to show and market their work independently is at the core of Artspan’s mission.
Artspan is notable among artist website providers in continually making sophisticated back-end technical enhancements to streamline the process of setting up and managing a full-featured website, even for non-technical users. The newest package of user tools includes: a drag-and-drop feature for images and galleries; a WYSYWYG inline editor with instant preview for editing site contents; greater control of display options for gallery menus; and simplified setup guides, which make it a snap for new users to get a website up and running in no time.
“No one offers the package of features and functionality that Artspan offers,” says Artspan Director Eric Sparre, “and we do it for a lower price. With our enhanced suite of user tools, it’s possible for a new member to have a basic website up within a half hour.”
Artists and artisans working in any medium are encouraged to take advantage of Artspan’s 30-day free trial period to see for themselves how these new features, along with Artspan's full array of tools and resources, make it simple to create a beautiful, customized website. (Learn more here.)

Artspan is exceptional among online artist communities and providers of templated artist websites, in offering artists the best of both worlds: Member artists benefit from being part of a searchable, high-traffic community, consistently top-ranked for the term “Contemporary Art” by Google and Yahoo, while maintaining the autonomy of their own URL.
