For over 35 years, McGaw Graphics has been the industry leader in the poster and open editions publishing industry. McGaw works with artists and foundations worldwide to publish, promote and distribute reproductions of their artworks to a variety of audiences including galleries, frame companies, online retailers and consumers.
Our publishing program supports the initiatives of fine artists by acting as a trusted publisher to reproduce and market their works, allowing artists to focus on their original artworks and professions. We provide a means to print, frame and archive artworks so that customers can get great artwork at affordable prices that may not be able to afford original works of art. McGaw publishes for leading foundations and institutions worldwide and works with contemporary artists that want to broaden their customer base by making their art accessible to a larger audience of customers.

Q: Will I be notified if my work is not selected?
A: Yes, we respond to all submissions.

A: Yes, if you are sending new and different images. We will not respond to duplicate submissions.
Q: How much money can I make in royalties if published?
A: Royalty rate and other contract terms will be discussed if your work is selected for publication. It is not possible to provide an amount that you can make since there are many variables to consider.
Q: What type of work are you looking for?
A: We are looking for work that is unique, fresh, and marketable, with a decorative appeal.
