We all know it's the 'little things' that really make a difference. Here at Persora we offer our art work, sculptures and products for loan to commercial photographers with competitive rates and offer a return-business loyalty programme.
What's the process?
We are more than happy to loan out anything from our retail space or gallery which you would like to use in your commercial photography shoots for your clients and our process is very simple (especially because we know how tight your deadlines might be or how quick the turnaround is for some projects).
Feel free to give us a call on 01386 556161 to speak to our gallery curator Aimee Hyde or Sasha Hyde if you are more interested in hiring products that we have in store and online. It is important to note that most of our original art work is not online and is only available to view in our gallery. Our curator however, will be more than happy to send you images of all of the art we hold or of course, you are free to arrange an appointment to view it in person. We will loan out any of the items in our retail space and gallery excluding all core fittings and furniture unless otherwise displayed on our online site at www.persora.com.
Once you have decided upon what it is you would like to loan, we will prepare a short-term loan agreement which must be complete in full prior to collection of any of our items. This form will ask the following questions (amongst others):
- Who is your client?
- What is the purpose/use of the photography?
- Is your client happy to credit Persora and/or the artist as per our stipulations?
- If the products or art are being used in print material, what is the target market and which publications will they be used in?
- Do you have adequate insurance for all items you are hiring whilst they are off the Persora premises?
Once you have decided what you would like to loan from Persora and filled in the simple (but hugely relevant form!) we will prepare your items ready for you to collect at a time and date specified by you.
Once you have finished with the items and you want to return, you may do so any time between Monday and Saturday from 8.30am until 5.00pm. We understand you are busy too and therefore, if you need to return them outside of normal working hours, we are happy to ensure that we are Persora to receive them and check them over with you., please call 01385 556161 to arrange.
Our minimum loan and hire term is 1 day (this would include transportation to and from delivery point, normally this would be arranged by the company/individual who are loaning the products/art. Our art is loaned at 10% of the retail cost, per day. For example:
1 x Original <Artist Name> art, oil on canvas.................Retail: £595.00..........Hire Cost: £59.50
1 x Limited Edition Print <Artist Name>, giclee print.......Retail: £139.00..........Hire Cost: £13.90
Once we have received your confirmation of acceptance of our terms and conditions along with the forms which are required to be filled in, we will start to prepare your artwork or products ready for collection. For every piece of artwork required, there is a £2.50 wrapping charge to ensure it is protected and for products from our retail space, a £1.00 packing charge per item.
Any other associated costs?
No. Once your receive our full and final quote, there are no additional charges or 'hidden extras'!
Crediting Persora, the Gallery & the Artist
If you are loaning art from our gallery, both the gallery itself and the artist should be credited in all commercial photography, in particular when being used in advertising in publications. This will look something like this:
"Original art/limited edition prints/other courtesy of Artist Name, the Persora Gallery, www.persora.com"
If you are loaning products from our retail store, it is only necessary to credit Persora in all commercial photography, in particular when being used in advertising in publications. This will look something like this:
"Product name courtesy of Persora Ltd, www.persora.com"
If you are loaning a selection of items from our retail space AND our gallery, you will need to ensure that both Persora itself and the artist is credited in all commercial photography, in particular when being used in advertising in publications. This will look something like this:
"Product name courtesy of Persora Ltd, www.persora.com and original art/limited edition prints/other courtesy of Artist Name, the Persora Gallery, www.persora.com"
What happens if the items I have loaned are lost, damaged or stolen whilst in my possession?
You must notify us within 1 hour and if stolen, you should make sure that the police have been notified. In this occurrence, the full cost of the artwork/products borrowed will be paid immediately to Persora Ltd at full retail value. If the artwork/products are recovered and returned after being stolen, a 50% repayment will be made back to the loaner and the remainder kept with Persora to account for loss of sale value whilst it has not been in the gallery or retail space. Rebates will be discussed and reviewed based upon the final quality of the product (damage, etc) once it has been returned to Persora.
