Hang your work on the web. Nail in the Wall dot com

Websites for artists.

Nail in the Wall sites are designed specifically to enable artists to display their work on-line. There are two principles at the heart of Nail in the Wall - that our sites should display your work in it’s best possible light, keeping distractions to an absolute minimum, and that they should be easy to keep up-to-date with fresh pieces as you create them.

Everything has been designed with the help of artists to make sure you get the features that you need to display, and even sell your work, for a small monthly price. All sites come with a 30 day free trial, so you can try it for size, and you are free to cancel at any time.

When you sign up, you can choose a unique Nail in the Wall address for your site. If you wish to use an address you already own, you can do that too at no extra charge. Our service is hosted so the price covers everything that you will need to get your work up on the web.

After creating an account your site will be up in a minute or two, and you can start uploading artwork, and making web pages straight away.

Site Design

All of our site templates are clean, simple and elegant, rather like galleries in the real world, to make sure that your work remains squarely as the focus of your visitors attention.

The templates intelligently re-size to work on smartphones and tablets as well as desktop computers and laptops, so that no matter what device your viewers are looking at your site on, it will adapt itself appropriately, and make sure that they get the best view possible. The gallery has been designed to make the very best use of the available screen space, with minimum distraction.

In addition to collections of work, you can also create pages to introduce yourself, list exhibitions, galleries and events, anything you like really, to make your Nail in the Wall site a really useful way of staying in touch with customers and admirers.

You can change the colours, typefaces and images using our very easy to use design editor, which is so simple, it’s actually fun. You can play with the design and see the changes happening in realtime on your site.

If a more drastic re-design is required you can edit the code of your site yourself (or hire a web designer to do it for you), giving you an almost endless range of possibilities for the look of your site. We offer a full customization service if required, and can help with little tweaks too, so if you have something in mind, please get in touch.

Updating Your Site

One of the key design aspects for Nail in the Wall was to make the process of updating artwork and pages on your site as simple as possible. All the editors have been designed with this in mind so that creating a page, a gallery, or adding a new piece of artwork is a work of minutes, without having to do any coding, or learn a complicated interface. Everything has been designed and tested to be as logical and straightforward as we can make it. Even the images are automatically re-sized appropriately for the web so the process of keeping things up to date is a breeze.

If you don’t want to update the site yourself, we even offer an update service where you send us your changes in the post and we will update the site for you. Please get in touch for details.
