We also have an advertising program with iheartdiscoveries.com…
This type of advertising allows advertisers and artists to connect and profit from each other through ad placement near art advertising.
Due to consumer demand we can only advertise products similar to the art being showcased, for instance:
A Painting of a can of soup (like The Norman Rockwell) could have coupons for soup next to it,
Or 50 Shades of Grey could have a deal for 5% off the grey bed a page after it is mentioned, but
We will not have anything that resembles Harry Potter drinking Coke-Cola, or Avenger pop-ups around a Sculpture of a Tree.
Essentially Art Placement Advertising is using Advertising to sell Art or Art to sell advertising by combining similar concepts into one presentation.
Since this advertising is highly selective in who can advertise with what piece of art, there are two ways to receive quotes for this advertising.
- Click here to go to BNE Publishing.com and fill out the request an advertising quote form.

- and provide a selection of options based on expected CPM costs and total impressions expected from the ad.

We also have seven in-house departments that allow us to make any piece of art we are working on popular through our Self-Publishing Option.
If you are an artist simply trying to make it, but don’t want to work for us or haven’t won the Discoveries Ink contest this is how to buy it.
Yes that’s right we do offer a spot in each newsletter for one piece of Art that is featured by BNE Publishing.
What this means is if you pay for the time, materials and services BNE typically spends to promote a single piece plus 6% we will make you Art the feature and allow you all the benefits of a contest winner.
The reason BNE offers this is that while we would like to believe our judgement of quality is full and final, but sometimes the public disagrees..
Through Self-Publishing any artist who is anyone can become published and popular if the put up the money to do so.
Different types of Art has different costs; to secure an Self-Publishing contract please request a quote from BNE by clicking here and after final approval of the quote and contract, submit half the costs required for the contract and BNE Publishing will secure your spot on a first come first serve basis. Currently there is only one BNE location, but as we expend we will offer additional Self-Publishing spots.
Self-Publishing contracts are very similar to contest winner contracts. While initial costs for self publishing may be significant, it should be known this is typically very close to what BNE spends on a particular piece of art. Further all Self-Published contracts are expected to make a profit, however like stocks the cost/benefit balance may not be achieved for some time so BNE would typically encourage any Artist to wait and see before making and sudden changes to the initial marketing plan. At BNE’s discretion we may request that an Artist submit a new or different piece to promote due to our customers preferences.
All published artists are expected, but not required to submit representations (photos, videos and reproductions) of their portfolio upon promotion of one of their pieces of artwork through our Newsletter, Discoveries Ink. We ask this of artists because having many pieces of art allows for a much longer and engaged experience from our users creating improved goal conversion rates and thereby maximizing possible profits. Artists with more and varied art to promote should expect higher profit returns and a larger audience, meanwhile artists who choose not to participate in this aspect of the program may experience short lived success or very little to no success at all (beyond the $0.05 per newsletter sold of course). It is absolutely the Artists discretion as to how much they participate, but in all actuality if you want to do art for a living either quite your day job and come work with us, or submit all the art you have created after being published in the newsletter and we will do our best to see to it that you won’t need a day job any longer (and then come work with us because art is fun:).
