HOUSTON, April 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- With the recent upsurge in cryptocurrency and digital art popularity, Tellinga announced it has added custom NFT art as part of its personalized story-mailing experiences; expanding its portfolio to include digital versions of each work it creates, while encouraging clients to mint and tokenize their purchases as NFTs if they wish. Tellinga began as a specialized, boutique arthouse that uses mail art – small-scale illustrations and drawings sent through the mail, often in episodes – to transform personal photos and stories into handcrafted, tangible illustrated experiences that are snail-mailed as postcards to friends and family in a memorable way. Tellinga is currently offering 10% off by joining its newsletter, and always donates a portion of each purchase toward fighting breast cancer, Alzheimer's, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
"With the popularity of CryptoKitties and artists like Beeple and Grimes selling original NFTs for millions of dollars, it's clear that crypto art has launched onto the scene in a major way," said Alex Kurkowski, Tellinga founder. "So many of our clients are highly interested in becoming a part of the NFT art movement – and our crypto artists are happy to help. NFTs are a super-cool 21st century invention that have revolutionized art ownership. Essentially, they're electronic identifiers that confirm a digital collectible is real by recording the details of that collectible on an irrefutable digital ledger known as the blockchain. Art can now be digitally recorded, forever. We offer a way for our customers to do the same, by giving them both original tangible art and a digital copy of that original art, so they own both, and can tokenize the digital art if they wish."
