Become a Patron Member of artdc.org
« on: February 12, 2007, 10:25:58 PM »
Patron Membership:

Artdc.org is off to a great start this year!  Wrapping things up for December we received over 1.4 million hits, which is excellent news.  The outside world is starting to take note of our activity!  Our growth continues as the number of page views increased for January where we received mention in 5 newspapers including the Washington City Paper, Post, and Examiner!  Find details here: http://artdc.org/forum/index.php?topic=4495.0

With all of this success in mind, and our impending hosting bill, we’d like to go further.  Recently we’ve developed t-shirt production and we’ve increased our available bandwidth to due to our increased activity, which has added to our costs!  We need your help!  We are now developing a paid membership for artdc.org so we can continue.

Artdc.org will remain about the same, free as before but we’ll add a few services to those that want to support artdc.org.

To aid our development, we will add a paid membership category of members entitled, “patron members,” which will be retro active to 01/01/2007.

With your Patron Membership you will gain access to a closed section of our artdc.org forums. Here you're able to discuss the latest news and artdc.org development which is not public yet, as well as provide feedback about artdc.org. You also will gain access to our priority artdc.org support via email.

We are also searching for support from local art vendors.  Design Frames has offered 15% off of all framing for artc.org patron members.  We'll also offer discounts on our artdc.org goods.  If you have any connections, let us know!

Patron members will gain a larger upload quota in the artdc.org gallery.

Patron members will gain the opportunity to advertise a "personal artist page" in the artdc.org banner system free for one month.  There will be a limit of 10 personal artist banners per month in a designated artist support block on the forum index.  Artists will have the opportunity to select different months if they relate to a show or opening.

When things catch on, we'll press membership cards with a unique number on each.  These cards will be stylish black plastic with our artdc.org white logo and a silver membership number.  Only artdc.org patron members will receive a membership card.

Membership will start at "$35.00 US" a year.  We welcome larger patrons who wish to support our efforts, but we believe that $35.00 is a great starting point.  All donations are nonrefundable, and terms of membership benefits are subject to change.

If for some reason we've been unable to convince you that you need a Patron Membership, it is also an excellent way to support artdc.org, and those that have devoted their free time to make artdc.org what it is today.

Summary for patron member benefits:

  • Patron Members Board Access
  • E-mail tech support for artdc.org
  • Patron members will gain a larger upload quota in the artdc.org gallery
  • Each Patron receives a thank you link here: http://artdc.org/forum/index.php?topic=3451.0
  • Patron Members are invited to submit work to our patron members shows

We're excited to hear from you!


Note: Artdc.org is not a nonprofit so this is not tax deductable, but it's supporting a wonderful happening in the DC area!


Make your payments here.

i realized i never donated!  situation has been rectified.   :smt001 

artdc.org has done so much for me and my art that it's really silly of me not to support it.  i've made friends, been in shows, made connections, and am in general happy to be able to share my ventures with others and see what everyone else is up to.  if artdc were to ever go away, i don't know what i would do!   :smt107

Thank you, Thank you!  You've been added to the patron list and you should now see the patron membership board!  We value your glowing response, and I feel the same way.

If you are interested in the framing discount, I'll contact Mark for you till we get membership cards printed.

Design Frames can be found here:
806 W Broad St, Falls Church, VA 22046 
(703) 532-2660
www.designframes.com

They do great work and can have quick turn around.  From simple frames to crazy complicated work.  I give them my highest professional recommendation.

is this discount still good? I use Frame Masters and have been very happy with their services and pricing but I'm not one to turn down a bargain.

As far as I know, Yes.  Ask for Mark.  They have moved though.  Their website is the same.

Jesse and all!
I'm a new member and I know that site is free but I just made a donation anyway. I feel like anytime we can work together as artists and friends and support each other it is to the advantage of us as professional artists and human beings.  Love being a new part of artdc.org
