Art.com and AllPosters merger?
Most art webmasters have probably tried the affiliate program of one or the other of these two companies. Now it looks like Art.com and AllPosters.com will merge in the not too distant future. Art.com is working on raising $30 million to fund the merger and to fill the bank accounts ($9.9million) of the officers and directors at Art.com.
To be honest, I think it should be made illegal to sell fine art posters. Original paintings can be so cheap if you know where to look, so where's the sense in buying something that 10,000 other people also have hanging on their wall?
Bad art should be made illegal too, but that's a whole other story.
Art.com, Allposters.com eye merger
"Art.com executives told employees on Feb. 16 that they are working on a merger with AllPosters.com, an Emeryville, Calif.-based online retailer that bills itself as the "world's largest poster and print store." It's not clear at this point where the merged operations would be based, but AllPosters.com is the larger company with a higher revenue base and a larger head count."
