About Us

Prints for Pandemic Relief: Pakistan is an independent print sale fundraiser mobilizing art for aid towards people affected by Covid-19 in Pakistan. We have requested contemporary Pakistani visual artists to donate original artwork—photographs, images of paintings, and digital art—for sale as prints. All proceeds from this will go to grassroots workers and organizations working on Covid-19 relief in Pakistan—we're pairing with a diverse range of relief partners that cover various vulnerable communities and geographies and are embedded in grassroots efforts.

The fundraiser will take place from May 1 to May 22.

About the prints

Our collection is steadily growing and we will be adding more artwork as we receive submissions. However, some of the works on our website are limited editions and will likely sell out fast. So, if something catches your eye we recommend you buy it sooner rather than later!

New works will be highlighted in our new arrivals section on the homepage. You can gradually check back to make sure you don't miss out on any new prints.

The majority of our artists have chosen to keep their prints unsigned.

In the case of limited editions, it will be mentioned in the description. Otherwise, they are open-for-the-duration editions.

The majority of our artists have chosen to keep their prints unsigned.

All prints come with a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist. This certificate guarantees that your chosen print has been sold with the permission of the artist, and is an authentic work.

Yes, price points do vary across regions. Orders that both originate in Pakistan and have a local shipping address cost Rs 6000, while international orders cost USD 65. The reason for the difference is that for orders abroad we will be printing and shipping the final pieces from the US. This obviously increases our expenses significantly, and we want to ensure that ultimately our relief partners still get their promised funds, and that you receive a high quality product.

Print Size

Presently, all prints are 9” x 12”.

We are currently offering only one size but are working on offering bigger sizes for digital art and photographs—stay tuned. We are not offering customizations.

All prints will be published on high quality, matte art print paper. We want to strike the optimum balance between functionality and aesthetics to not only showcase your chosen print(s), but also to transport and preserve it.

We will start printing and shipping the prints once the lock down is lifted in our respective regions - meaning both yours and ours. In other words we will begin the printing and shipping process as soon as safely possible. The prints will be shipped to the address you shared upon checkout. In this shipment you will receive: (i) the purchased print(s), and (ii) the associated certificate(s) of authenticity. All materials will be appropriately packaged to ensure that they are not damaged in transit.

Our printing and shipping relies on coordinating in different areas. We ask for your patience while we navigate with our teams to get your order to you in the safest way possible.
