Pricing

Buying art is fun, but complicated pricing isn’t, so we’ve made it simple.

We price our paintings according to size and the stretching option you choose.

First, a Word (or two!) About Stretching

A “stretched” painting is one that has been pulled tight over a wooden framework and stapled in place.  It’s not the same as “framing” a painting.  A frame is a decorative part that shows, while the framework on the back, which is made of four or more wooden “stretcher bars,” is what literally stretches the painting flat and holds it in its final shape.  Stretcher bars are only visible on the back, while a frame is visible on the front.

All paintings must be stretched before they’re hung.  You have three options:

  • Use our Instant Magic stretcher bars (assemble and hang your painting moments after you receive it and easy, but more expensive and adds 1 week to shipping time)
  • Have your painting stretched by a frame shop after you receive it (must shop around for a good deal and may be more expensive, stretched painting might not fit in your vehicle, cannot be un-stretched for storage or transport, probably the slowest option as frame shops may take days or even weeks to stretch your painting)
  • DIY stretching (less expensive and possibly fastest option, depending upon how fast you work, but requires some work, tools required, and cannot be un-stretched for storage or transport)

Frames are completely optional, and most of our collectors choose to hang their paintings with none.  This is called a “gallery wrap” style, and you can see it in museums all over the world.  We show some of our paintings with simple frames so that you can how they might look if you did decide to frame them, but none ship with frames.

in-stock, gallery inventory paintings.
Ready to ship immediately!

Prices for our in-stock, gallery inventory paintings are listed below each painting here in our online gallery.  Prices include free shipping within the continental US.  

For the safety of the painting (and to save you a lot of money!), our in-stock paintings are shipped rolled and are not stretched.  You can have it stretched at a frame shop near you.  This costs anywhere from $50 to over $1000, depending upon the size of the painting and upon where you have it done, so shop around.  It can take a week (and sometimes much more) to have a painting stretched by a frame shop, so do plan accordingly.

If you want to save even more money and aren’t afraid of a bit of DIY, you can stretch your own painting.  We think it’s an easy, fun, and satisfying project.  Learn how.

Hang it moments after you receive it!

No need to take it to a frame shop or to do any DIY.  Your painting adorns your wall right away.

Our stretched paintings come with the Instant Magic stretcher bar system that allows you to hang your painting moments after you receive it.  One person can do it with no tools in about two minutes.  This solution can be reversed for transport or storage, too.  It’s more expensive than buying an un-stretched painting, but if you’re not handy or you want instant results, this is the way to go.  Prices include free shipping within the continental US.

Ships in 2 to 3 weeks.

Larger Sizes

Need something even bigger?  We can create wall-hung paintings up to 11′ x 18′ or longer (up to 140 continuous feet!).  We can also create non-movable murals for an entire wall, an entire room, or as large as the side of a building.  Please contact us to discuss your project.

How We Keep Our Prices so Low

You’ve probably noticed that our prices are insanely low, especially for our larger sizes.  At a gallery, a 6′ by 8′ painting (if you can find one) can cost many thousands of dollars.  But at Deep Urban, the artists own the gallery.  That means you avoid the gallery markup, which is usually 40% to 60%.  Plus, the patented stretcher bar system we use allows our paintings to be rolled for shipping and hung moments after you receive them—and keeps shipping costs way (way!) down.
