The rendition of the photo I provided to the artist is spectacular! The painting took little time to produce and I was able to see it prior to framing--the artist was in touch with me every step of the way. I was very impressed with the quality of the painting--it's just like the photo! I had the painting made for my mother-in-law who just lost her dog and when she received it, she called to let me know how much she loved the painting and how she will be able to look at it every day and cherish it. Thank u for providing this service--I know that it will begin to heal the heartbreak of losing a friend. My mother-in-law was also impressed with the quality. Thank u again for a superb product and service.

My brother, sister and Iworked with artocrat to create this really special anniversary gift for my parents. My parents loved all of our pets growing up, so I asked Erika about doing three pet portraits -- one for each dog we've had. She spent time explaining the different painting styles and helped me understand that pop art would achieve my goal of creating a piece of art that was playful, modern, and colorful. We decided together to do three pop art pet paintings, and she bundled the paintings together to save me on shipping costs. The finished paintings were awesome! We were on a tight deadline, so Erika kept the paintings on track and kept me informed every step of the way. The paintings arrived two days before the anniversary, and my parents are OVER THE MOON with their new art! Thank you artocrat!

About

Creating custom, commissioned art for you!

Hi there!

At artocr.at, we are a team of art enthusiasts, painters, curators, collectors, and shameless promoters of the joy of owning your own art collection. Our team includes Jay, Erika, and Jacqueline, plus other artists who are interested in our mission and in creating custom paintings. We're happy to serve you and to bring custom art into your life!

artocr.at started as a simple idea: how can we create greater access to custom, commissioned art?

After years of commissioning our own art and talking to mystified friends ("how did you get this awesome painting?!?"), we wanted to tear down the barriers to commissioning real, original, handmade art. Art is such a joy to own; getting commissioned art should be easy and fun too!

After doing some research, we found that the biggest barriers to buying custom art are:
(1) it's hard to find an artist who will paint what we want,
(2) we don't feel confident that we know enough about art styles to order a custom painting, and
(3) the art buying process is a mystery and can be nerve-wracking.

We decided to create an art company to address these three issues. We value spending time teaching our customers about various art styles and consulting on which style would best suit their painting vision. We are transparent with our pricing and provide clear, easy-to-read quotes, and we are willing to paint whatever our customers would like for their custom paintings.

So, artocr.at was born!

At artocr.at, we aim to revive the age-old tradition of custom art by making the process of commissioning one-of-a-kind custom artwork accessible and personal.

We are a social enterprise, which means we are donate part of our revenues to make the world safer, better, and more sustainable. We donate to non-profit organizations focused on access problems across the world - thanks to your business!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Paypal is the preferred method of payment, but we also accept credit cards and Etsy gift cards.
Shipping
Each piece of art is inspected and packaged for safe travel so that your piece arrives to you in perfect condition. We insure all shipments at no cost to you, so if any damage happens to the painting, we will replace it.

Paintings larger than 24x36 may need to be shipped rolled - this does not harm the painting. Additional shipping charges may apply, if you prefer that your larger painting be shipped stretched and ready to hang.
Refunds and Exchanges
We do not provide refunds for completed custom paintings due to the highly custom nature of the work. We allow up to two revisions of the painting if you aren't satisfied, and additional revisions may be granted at our discretion.

For highly custom paintings, we often work with digital artists to create digital mocks that you can review and approve before we start your painting. If your order is canceled before the painting is started, we will refund your payment in its entirety - however, we may need to withhold up to $150 of your refund to ensure that we can pay the digital artists.

We insure all shipments at no cost to you, so if any damage happens to the painting, we will replace it.

There may be some color variation due to computer monitors. We make a special effort to ensure that paintings match the original colors unless you specify otherwise.

Please message us with questions!
Additional policies and FAQs
For any painting created by artocr.at, we retain the artistic rights to the painting and can share it as part of our portfolio. Note that if you send us artwork for reproduction, you must own the rights to reproduce that artwork.
