Pros

Also I appreciate your emails and the excellent advice in them. I wasn’t expecting that, it’s a great added bonus.
It is easy to use, clean and always getting better with improvements. Customer service is wonderful too.
I started using Artwork Archive in 2015 and since then they have constantly added additional features that have continued to improve their product. Also they have amazing customer service.

Cons

Finding individual item quickly can be difficult.
We haven’t encountered any real problems. I was going to mention wanting more control over the order of images when they’re uploaded.
I know no one makes them anymore, and no one else misses them.

Primer

Perfect for Artists

Reviewed 3 years ago

The customer service and response to individualized questions has been outstanding. We had a big transfer of data from our previous software and the Primer team was very helpful in making it a smooth transition. They also continue to add services and options to adapt to an ever-changing art world.

Pros

I love the ease with which I can create PDF proposals to share my work in a professional way. This has saved many hours of time so I can focus on painting. My studio manager uses this software the most. He especially appreciates the ability to track transactions, loans, and sales to make sure we have a detailed history on every artwork.

Cons

I have not encountered any cons with this product.

Primer

Great for studios, artists, and galleries alike

Reviewed 3 years ago

Intuitive design, ease-of-use, superb customer service, and their quick help desk response time are the standouts of Primer. I have created archives for three different art studios as well as used the platform for a commercial gallery. Artists often ask my advice for what database to use for tracking inventory and invoicing and I always recommend Primer. Also, I have seen artists become more involved in the care of their archive by the very act of creating one.

Pros

I love how all of the data can be tagged to relate with one another. This makes tracking collectors, works, collections, invoicing, shipping, and exhibitions seamless and creates a robust history of interactions between all of these categories (and more). Quickly making .pdfs for offer letters and checklists for shows is a huge plus.

Cons

I can't think of anything that is not a positive with the database or the service.
