How to Start Your Own Custom Portrait Business

#1
Are you looking to purchase custom portraits? If so, there are some great ways to save money and get exactly what you want. For example, you could create a sketch first and have someone else do the final artwork to your specifications. This way you can save money because you won't have to pay an artist to render your likeness on paper. If you are not familiar with computer software then you can always pay someone to do it for you.

The price point for custom portraits really depends on what you are looking for. If you just want generic pictures to give away as gifts or for no reason at all then it would not be too expensive to take a few photos and upload them to an online photo gallery and have them created. Typically this is going to cost you around $50. You can get custom portraits done at this price point for children, grandchildren, friends and even for a special occasion such as an anniversary.

However, if you are in the business of Custom Canvas Paintings for your clients then you will most likely charge customers a higher price point. In most cases when you start a custom portrait business you will want to charge customers a little bit more to start to attract them because you will have a very high demand for your work. Once you have built up a reputation with your customers and your business is growing then you will be able to increase your prices on portraits and begin to offer your services to multiple customers instead of just a few.
