Frequently Asked Questions
We are happy revise and correct any artist directory information. Just send us an email to [email protected] with a description of the desired change, and also your relationship to the artist (self, business manager, etc). If you would like to remove your artist listing in the directory, please provide the reason for requesting removal (if you are not the artist, please make sure to describe your authority to act on behalf of the artist).
We welcome all Hawaii artists who are “professional” (selling their art commercially), as seen in the current Hawaii Artists directory. If you meet this criteria, then please send us an email to [email protected] with the following information, and we will review your request: Name, Web site, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, email, phone, address (optional).
Yes, we will consider “Fine Art” photographers as members of the Hawaii Artists Directory. Note that 808Arts.com is NOT a stock photo service, and we do not promote documentary, scenic or journalistic photography. Instead, we look for true “Fine Art Photography”, which is defined as images created with the vision of the photographer, ie, the photographer is expressing an idea, a message, or an emotion above and beyond the scene, and has a clear artistic intent. Simply taking a high quality photo of a beautiful moment or location does not qualify. You must clearly add creative input on top of any natural beauty to make a statement.

UV resistant acrylic is a type of plexiglass that filters out harmful UV (ultraviolet) rays. These rays will fade inks and paint over time, so it’s very important to use UV-resistant acrylics, as well as keep art out of direct sunlight. We include UV-resistant acrylic in every order we frame.

- Take detailed photos of the exterior box/packaging as well as damaged artwork
- Email photos and your name and order # to: [email protected]
- We will review the photos and reply to you with further instructions.
- Any claims for damages without supporting photos cannot be honored, we need proof of damage in order to file claims with our shippers.
