Prints for Sale at RedBubble.com

For some time now prints of my work has been on the list of things to do but never had the time to get really serious about it to present them in a way that I was happy with.

Yesterday I came across an Australian website called RedBubble who offers prints of paintings, sketches, photography and so on. I did come across familiar names that have signed up and after some further research decided to give it a go myself. Click to see my Portfolio at RedBubble.

How does it work? It is so easy to do. Sign up, load up high quality images of your work, and choose the mark up price which will be your share of the sale, sit back and wait to see if there is a transaction.

I did have concerns with the copyright of my work but put that worry aside for now with a limited amount of work offered. Product previews are all low quality image files so it shouldn’t become an issue. I can delete works at anytime.

If you go to the questions and answers for uploading your images, it gives a pretty good description of how your work will be used.

It looks very good Susan. Nice clear pages with a good amount of information.

It seems to be a rather convenient system for artists. Hope it works for you!

Hi Susan.

Interesting to see you do this. I've been toying with doing the same thing and I'll be interested to see how it all turns out for you.

On to much more serious things ;) - you have been tagged by me - and now need to share with us seven things most of us don't know about you (if you care to play along!)
See my blog 11.05.07. for more details

Yes Bart it is set out very nice and found the users of RedBubble to be very friendly and welcoming.

Xavier, thank you for offering this service and may it be a profitable one for both of us.

Katherine I will keep everybody up to date with how it pans out between myself and RedBubble.
Chuckle…. I saw that tag going around and did wonder if I did escape telling tales on myself…LOL!!! I will play although it will be Sunday before I will post because I am involved with a family gathering for a special birthday for my dad tomorrow….. and I need time to think how much I will reveal! Oh yeah and pick out who I am going to tag…..mmmm now who will that be?!!!

Jafabrit thanks so much for dropping in on my blog, your visit & comment is very much appreciated. :D

Good for you on finally getting some prints out there for sale! Have you ever thought about going for an international audience? Right now Redbubble only ships to the AU :( - I am in the US. You could try a site like Imagekind, they ship everywhere!

Susan Borgas said...

Travis I am a little curious, do you have some connection to this website?

I came across Imagekind a few days ago with the intentions of looking into it further.
