What’s new to Prints? 🎉
Yesterday, we launched a whole new layer of excitement and features to Gamma Prints. Let’s explore everything we shipped:
Presale mint passes for Prints
New creator options for presales
Richer detailed pages for Prints
Various UX improvements
Prints discovery page
First, we’ve rebuilt the Prints discovery page from the ground up. Many improvements are under the hood, but you’ll notice fewer distractions with only the most important info up front-and-center.
On grid view, cards are now enriched with even more information, including quick trading states and the ability to “Quick buy” in one click without leaving the page.
We’ve shipped a much more powerful, traditional trading market view. Now, you can see all collectors as Prints are minted live, and you can browse all listings, volume, floor prices, and historical activity as you please.
Prints immersive page view
On any Print immersive page view, we now provide richer details about the Print itself and the artist behind the artwork. You can read its description, see its tags, and read about the artist or explore other Prints they’ve released.
Prints Presales are built different — they’re designed to be a crazy simple way to reward collectors with early access to new releases. Here’s how it works — creators define exactly how they want their presale to happen, based on collectors of:
Any of your Prints
Another creator’s Prints
Mint passes can be assigned based on number of items owned, or per collector. Now, when an exciting new release is happening, you can automatically receive mint passes based on Prints you’ve already collected. Alternatively, you can unlock presale access in just a few minutes by clicking “Get access” to learn more:
As an artist, you can collaborate with other creators and set their Prints as eligible for mint passes.
This release sets the stage for much more to come in the next few weeks. Until then, explore the new release and new Prints down below!
Art Basel Open Call
Don’t forget to apply for our week-long Bitcoin art show during Art Basel Miami at the Sagamore, Miami's original art hotel. Works will be exhibited on an immersive, 100 sq ft curved LED wall, located in the heart of Miami Beach's Art Deco District.
In this context, we are excited to announce an open call for artists to submit artworks inspired by the Art Deco movement. A prominent artistic and design style of the 1920s and 1930s, known for its floral ornamentation, geometric shapes, and feeling of opulence.
Our 7 day show will be presented on an immersive, 100 sq ft LED wall, curved around the natural architecture within the Sagamore South Beach lobby. Just two blocks from Art Basel, it will be seen by thousands of art collectors, hotel guests, and event attendees.
Our Miami Art Week Artist Open Call is accepting submissions through November 25th. Apply below!

Partner Artist of the Week
Welcome to another featured Partner of the Week, a series highlighting remarkable artists creating Ordinals through the Gamma Partner Program! Today, we’re introducing Tyler Foust, a self-taught line artist, creating hand-drawn algorithms that don’t intersect.
Tyler started doodling using his unique line art style in university to help him concentrate. Rather than distracting himself with his phone and zoning out, this practice helped him listen and learn, and at the same time, nurture what has become an absolutely impressive skill.
It was only when someone asked him why he was popping them in the trash, because they were impressive, did he realize he might be onto something... Pictured below is the result of his live artwork drawn on Gamma's recent Creator Roundtable via Discord (which you can watch down below).
For his debut launch on Bitcoin, Tyler launched his print called The Great Wave, an homage to Katsushika Hokusai in his single line art style. See and collect this incredible piece here: https://gamma.io/tfoust
In a recent conversation with Tyler, we discussed what it takes to be a creator, how to have fun with what you do, merch, and family. You can listen to our entire conversation in the following interview:
Finally, make sure to follow Tyler Foust, an artist who who is always pushing the boundaries of what he can create in “one simple line.”
Creator Roundtable: Ordinals Edition recap
Watch the recording of our first Creator Roundtable: Ordinals Edition as Tyler Foust, Olly, and Ixchel, and Kira Bursky walk you through their artistic processes and show you how they create their art on Bitcoin. These live-art sessions will be presented live on Discord monthly — stay tuned for the next one!
Thanks for tuning in, we’ll see you next week!
