Custom Print Pages for your DPW Gallery Website
Our niche is that DPW only offers natural media, original, fine art for sale, which means you can not post reproductions to DPW.
Important: One important difference between these prints and your fine art, though, is that the prints on your print pages will only appear in your
As a work around, you can enter your prints as items on a store page, if you want. The format of a store page isn't as well suited to prints as a print page, however you may find it works well enough.
How many Print Pages can you have?
Your custom pages will show up as tabs on your DPW Gallery, along with your Gallery of Art, and The Artist tabs. You are able to have as many pages as long as the pages' tabs can visually fit at the top of your Gallery.
How to Manage your Print Pages
Selecting the Admin Tools -> Manage My -> Gallery Page menu item opens the Manage your Gallery Pages window where you can add, edit, and delete event, print, and item pages.
You can create one page for all your prints, or a separate page for each type of print or subject matter, etc. It is completely up to you on how you organize your pages.
You can also drag and drop the pages in the page list shown below to change the order in which their tabs appear in your Gallery.
Once you have created one or more pages, you can use the shortcut links on any of your custom pages to open the Manage your Gallery Pages window, edit your page, or edit and delete items on the page.
You can also hover your mouse over one of your prints' thumbnails and click the little pencil icon that appears to edit a given print.
You can create, edit, and delete your pages in the page management window shown below, which opens when you click the manage your pages link in your gallery. You can also drag and drop the pages in the list to change the order in which their tabs appear in your Gallery.

A good representative image of your print. Be sure to make your image be at least 600 pixels tall or wide. Larger, up to 1,000 pixels, is best for zooming.
Quantity Tracking & Quantity On Hand
You do not have to have DPW track your print's Quantity On Hand, however if you do, DPW will show the words out of stock underneath the print if the quantity on hand is set to zero.
You can change an item's quantity on hand both in the Print Create/Edit window or in the print list in the Print Page window.
