Where to Buy Art Prints: Saatchi Art, Etsy, Minted, and More

Whether you’re sprucing up your living room or decorating a new place, art can do a lot for your walls—and vibes. Knowing where to buy art prints, though, can be the first sticking point to getting your collection going, since traditional art galleries can be intimidating, especially if you’re not clued in to the art world or working with a huge budget.

Fortunately, there are more sites than ever where you can find prints, paintings, photographs, and home decor. And when you buy art online, it’s even easier to find what suits your personal preferences, whether you’re looking for under-the-radar independent artists or want affordable art that won’t cost you a paycheck. Not only do you get more variety than in-person shopping, but these online retailers often come with curated collections and (sometimes free) in-house design advisors too.

While there’s a ton of original art up for grabs, you can also find high-quality reproductions of well-known works of art (we see you, Monet!) as well as limited-edition prints that won’t be around for long. With that, we’ve rounded up where to buy art prints to get the most bang for your buck.

If you’re not sure what you’re looking for, you’re in the right place at Saatchi Art, which offers a mix of prints, photography, and even sculptures at budget-friendly price points. Spend some time browsing its curated categories, such as abstract paintings, best sellers, and spotlights on emerging artists.  

You can find everything from Black-owned quilters to vintage fashion gems on Etsy, so it should come as a surprise to absolutely no one that the online platform, known for its support of independent artists, is a treasure trove of cool art. You can find a vast selection of original art, from colorful oil paintings to minimalist figure drawings at really great price points. There’s even digital art that you can simply download for a few bucks and print out yourself.

Come for the prints; stay for the mixed media pieces, which set Minted apart from the rest. While the stationery store is best known for invitations and thank-you notes, it also has a curated selection of artwork that appeals to a wide range of personal tastes, whether you’re into highlighter-worthy brights or textured collages. You can also customize whether you want paper or canvas prints, as well as the matting and frame size.

We were shocked—shocked!—to discover all the great art finds on Amazon Handmade, which is similar to Etsy…if Etsy had Prime’s two-day shipping perks. You can find tons of series here, ideal for displaying as a triptych or incorporating into a gallery wall.

You might know (and love) Verishop for its range of style, beauty, and sexual wellness offerings, but the e-tailer also has a surprisingly stacked selection of prints, drawings, and even limited edition collections. Not only can you explore its roster of artists on your own terms, but Verishop also hosts livestreams from various creators so you can shop your fave’s faves too.

If your home decor leans vintage, head on over to Sonic Editions, which specializes in black-and-white editions of iconic music photography, celebrity outtakes, and fashion moments from the 1950s and beyond. (There’s also a great travel collection for Slim Aarons fans.) Each print can be purchased with an optional black frame and mount for a striking, minimalist effect that works in every home—so you’re guaranteed to find an eye-catching piece.

Built as a platform to champion a new generation of artists, Tappan Collective’s art curation is brimming with original pieces, from limited edition prints and photographs to sculptures and textiles likely to appreciate over time. 

For the person just browsing, Society6 can point you in the right direction. It features edited collections of art prints to support various groups, such as women-identifying creators and Black artists, as well as pop culture moments, like Star Wars and Pixar movies. Once you pick your print, you can choose from a variety of sizes and frame colors to suit your space.

This online marketplace allows you to browse original artwork from various creators—again similar to Etsy, but solely for art. It also allows you to filter art according to budget, whether that maxes out at $100 or $500. And if you haven’t found exactly what you’re looking for, just log back on at a later time; Artfinder replenishes artwork every month with 15,000 new pieces, so you can enjoy a seemingly endless scroll.

Like many things up for grabs at U.O., the art selection leans retro, which is why you can find everything from groovy wall hangings to disco-era prints among its selection. Most pieces tend to clock in under $100, making it wallet-friendly enough even if you’ve just dropped money on your security deposit.

Aspiring interior designers, rejoice: One Kings Lane has a thorough collection of portraits designed to turn your bedroom, office, or other home project into an Architectural Digest–worthy spread. Whether you’re into modern art or whimsical photography, there’s enough art here for every taste—and curated by the design pros at OKL, you can rest assured that it’ll look good wherever you hang it.

Canvas art? Modern art? Museum-worthy prints? You can find all that and more over at the aptly named Art.com, which has a sprawling range of work from both household names and lesser known creators. You’ll also get free shipping and returns in case that Monet turns out to be too big, as well as free design services from in-house pros.

It might be called Fine Art America, but it won’t cost you as much as an actual piece of fine art, since this retailer primarily specializes in fine-art prints—big difference there. We’re especially partial to the Amy Hamilton’s baby-animal portrait series, which would be a great gift for a new mom looking to furnish a nursery. The art offerings also go well beyond the wall, with tapestries, phone cases, and even tote bags up for grabs.
