GIFT CARDS for Creative People


We love to receive referrals from our artists. To us it is the ultimate praise to know that our clients want to share their positive  experience at Archival Arts with their colleagues. We are now offering you the opportunity to complement those referrals  with a gift card from us. And on the flip side, you can strongly suggest to your family and friends that a gift card from Archival Arts would be an ideal  present for you! You decide the amount you want to give. We offer them in any denomination - modest or grand! 
 Since this is something new we are trying we  are happy to report that recently a customer purchased a card to surprise her mother who had always wanted to have the family portrait professionally reproduced but never thought it possible. Thanks to her daughter's generosity she will be able to realize that ambition. On Thursday, a long-time customer got one for his highly admired art teacher. So we know we are on the right track by offering you this chance to give or receive a gift card from Archival Arts.

Professional Sports and the Artists Who Celebrate Them

Tis the season for professional sports in Maryland. Tonight the Orioles could beat the Yankees and possibly have a chance at the world series pennant. The Baltimore Ravens are 4 and 1 as of this date. It's an exciting time for sports fans and some of our artists, too. Several Archival Arts clients are honoring the teams by painting and drawing the players and themes. We'd like to share a sampling of their work with you.
