TurningArt Unveils Innovative Wedding Gift Service, Delivering a Fun, Easy and Affordable Art Experience for Newlyweds

BOSTON, Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TurningArt, the innovative internet company that allows consumers to experience art in a whole new way, has unveiled an easy-to-use gift service, providing wedding guests with a fun and original gift option for the happy couple. TurningArt provides art memberships to an ever-changing selection of museum-quality prints. Based on a three-, six- or twelve-month gift membership, the newlyweds choose pieces from thousands of independent artists nationwide. If they fall in love with a piece or several, they have the option to buy the print or original.

Not only is wedding season an expensive time of year for the bride and groom, but wedding guests and bridal parties are constantly striving to find distinctive yet affordable gifts that fit the pair perfectly. Cash, check, and gift-registry items are being replaced with more personal and customized gifts.  TurningArt's service lends itself to being a more thoughtful gift and letting the couple make a statement about their relationship through art.

"Couples starting out may not have the money nor the inclination to purchase art, especially if they're renting or haven't developed their personal style as a couple," said Jason Gracilieri, Founder of TurningArt. "Gifting a TurningArt membership will help create that special home environment for them, and allow them to discover the art they love."

Gift-givers can select the first print for the couple, or email the couple a TurningArt gift notification with instructions on how to select their first piece. To help newlyweds with the selection process, TurningArt provides an online personality quiz and assigns each customer with a Personal Curator.

How TurningArt works:

  • Customers choose new art as often as they like. The first print arrives framed and ready-to-hang.
  • TurningArt adds new artists and new art every day. With thousands of pieces to choose from, there's something for everyone.
  • Every dollar spent is banked as ArtCredit that customers can use to buy any work of art on TurningArt.
  • Shipping is free all ways, always, whether you're receiving one new print or returning another.
  • TurningArt's stylish frames are made of a natural, recycled material that won't warp or dent like solid wood.
  • Each piece is printed on a high-quality material carefully selected for its ability to display rich, vibrant colors, capture subtle detail, and remain crinkle-free.

Pricing:

Even better, the gifting TurningArt is extremely affordable. There are three ways to give:

  • Three months for $30
  • Six months for $60 (enough credit to keep one unframed print)
  • Twelve months $120 (enough credit to keep one unframed print)

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era.

Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
