Special Order Art

Special Order Art Prints

There are over 1,000 Krishna art paintings that the BBT has given us permission to reprint for you on request, and over 19,000 photos of Srila Prabhupada. That's a LOT of images!

So HOW do you request a special order reprint? Since this is all on request, you can select the painting or photo, as well as the material we print on, and there are many size options. Please scroll down for some price, size, and material examples.

We do have a lot of images available as posters, photo prints, and canvas prints already, so please browse in our Art Shop. If we don’t have the painting or photo you are looking for here, we can have a special order print done for you.

Let us know more about the image, size, and material you are interested in; please contact us at artprints@krishna.com so we can make arrangements with you for a special order.

Email Us!

When you email us at artprints@krishna.com with your request, please tell us these details so we can help you quickly:

1. The image catalog number. If it is a painting, it will start with TA and have four numbers after it. You can find these in our Krishna Art Gallery. Most of Srila Prabhupada's photos can be browsed here, and their catalog numbers start with SP-BN (black and white) or SP-CT (color).

2. Size and material. If you aren't sure about size or material, that's fine, but give us an idea of what you are looking for so we can help with recommendations. If you know how wide or how tall you want the print, we can help you figure out the final dimensions.

3. Special needs or requirements. Do you have a certain date you need the print by, or a particular place you will be hanging this print? Let us know so we can help you with these needs. Turnaround time may increase if we have to remaster an image that needs to be enlarged beyond 24"x36". 

4. Where is this being shipped? Are you having this shipped to an address in the USA, or outside the USA? We can also give you a general shipping estimate, and help with some special shipping issues to international destinations.

Browse the Krishna.com paintings gallery for the Krishna art paintings you are looking for. Or browse the Srila Prabhupada photo gallery for pictures of Srila Prabhupada. 

One-Time Processing and Setup Fee Per Original Art File 

We charge a processing and setup fee to prepare original BBT Krishna Art archival scans for printing at your preferred custom size. Depending on the condition of the original, this often involves cleaning up distracting dust and scratch marks embedded in the archival scans, adjusting faded colors, and then resizing to fit your requested dimensions. This is a one-time fee per original art file. That means, for example, if you order multiple copies, and multiple sizes of the same painting, you'll only pay the processing fee once. Conversely, if you order prints of, say, five different paintings, we'll charge a processing fee for each.  $15 for prints up to 8"x10" - $30 for prints up to 24"x36" - custom quote for anything larger.

Material we can print on:

Photo Paper

This is high quality photographic paper. 
Sizes: We print standard sizes from 5"x7" to 24"x36".
Sample Prices per original art print on photo paper: (Does not include sales tax or shipping.) 
For sizes up to 8"x10", $15 one-time setup and processing fee per original artwork scan, plus per photo print charge as follows: 5"x7" $6, 8"x10" $8
For sizes up to 24"x36", $30 one-time setup and processing fee per original artwork scan, plus per print charge as follows: 11"x14" $22, 16"x20" $36, 20"x30" $48, 24"x36" $60.

 

Canvas

A white base covers real fabric canvas before the image is printed onto it. You get a subtle texture so, for example, a print of a painting looks more ‘real’. This arrives in a roll and needs to be framed. (Free optional 2” additional white canvas border for framing.)
Sizes: We can print almost any sizes from 8”x10” up to 54”x120”.
Sample Prices per original art print on canvas: ( Does not include sales tax or shipping.)
For 8"x10", $15 one-time setup and processing fee per original artwork scan, plus per canvas print charge of $20.
For sizes larger than 8"x10", up to 24"x36", $30 one-time setup and processing fee per original artwork scan, plus per canvas print charge as follows: 11"x14" = $24. 16"x20" = $36, 24"x36" = $73.
For sizes larger than 24"x36", please inquire for a custom quote from us. Artwork that needs to be enlarged to sizes beyond 24"x36" often needs to be re-scanned from the original photographic slide film, to increase the resolution.

 

Poster Paper or Styrene

Printed on 80 lb. poster paper with semi or high gloss finish, or on 20 mil. styrene. It is shipped as a rolled poster in a tube.

Sizes: We can print standard poster sizes from 11”x17” to 24”x36”.

Sample Prices per print on 80 lb. poster paper: (Does not include sales tax or shipping.)
$30 one-time setup and processing fee per original artwork scan, plus per poster print charge as follows: 16"x20" $30, 18"x24" $34, 20"x30" $42, 24"x36" $52.

Sample Prices per print on 20 mil. styrene: (Does not include sales tax or shipping.)
$30 one-time setup and processing fee per original artwork scan, plus per styrene poster print charge as follows: 16"x20" $40, 18"x24" $46, 20"x30" $54, 24"x36" $70.

 

Vinyl Banners

We have had some requests for vinyl banners from temples or people in humid climates because this material is less likely to get damaged by the elements. Great for outdoor displays.

Sizes: We can print standard sizes from 3'x2' to 6'x4' (dimensions in feet). Larger sizes are possible upon request. 

Sample Prices per print on standard 13 oz. vinyl: (Does not include sales tax or shipping.)
For a 3'x2' (36"x24") 13 oz. vinyl banner, $30 one-time setup and processing fee, plus per print charge of $28 ($34 with hemming and grommets).
For larger sizes, $50 one-time setup and processing fee, plus per print charge of 2’x4’ $34 ($42 with hemming and grommets), 3’x6’ $68 ($80 with hemming and grommets), 5’x3’ $58 ($70 with hemming and grommets), 6’x4’ $88 ($104 with hemming and grommets).

Sample Prices per print on premium 15 oz. vinyl: (Does not include sales tax or shipping.)
For a 3'x2' (36"x24") 15 oz. vinyl banner, $30 one-time setup and processing fee, plus per print charge of $36 ($44 with hemming and grommets).
For larger sizes, $50 one-time setup and processing fee, plus per print charge of 2’x4’ $46 ($54 with hemming and grommets), 3’x6’ $90 ($104 with hemming and grommets), 5’x3’ $76 ($92 with hemming and grommets), 6’x4’ $116 ($136 with hemming and grommets).

Turnaround Time

Custom art print requests can take anywhere from 2-6 weeks to process, not including shipping (transit) time. Generally, the simpler the request, the less time it will take. For example, if you'd like to order a custom photo print of BBT Krishna Art in a size up to 24"x36" we can generally complete such requests faster than poster, canvas or vinyl prints. Creating prints larger than 24"x36" requires additional time, as it often involves going back to the archival film transparencies and rescanning them with a high resolution drum scanner. If you're in a hurry, we can, for special requests, fast-track the turnaround time with an additional rush charge.
