Hi Hajimama! I'm excited, it's the first time I ask you something and I don't even know what I want to ask :'D By the way, I wanted to say that I love you and... I don't know, greetings from Italy! <3 I LOVE YOUUUUUUU
Oh hey, that’s cool! I love you too! Have a good time :)
Hey there, Inchells! I was just wondering, what's selling your stuff on Redbubble like? How does it work, and would you recommend it? I'd quite like to be talked thru the process by a fabulously talented insider before I make an account. ;-) If you have the time, of course! And how is it compared to however/wherever else you sell your stuff? Thank youuuuuuu! x
Oh shoot, sorry I let this sit for a bit anon !
I like using redbubble for the stickers, maybe postcards and recently I like their new pillow cases! It’s easy to sign up and its ok over all, you upload your piece and decide what you want it to be on, whether it’s stickers,t-shirts etc. You can get a template for t-shirts and stickers from them too, I always keep one on my desktop in case I feel the need to make more stickers. If you like to draw big, then I recommend it, it’d be easy for you to upload stuff and offer a wider range of products for your consumers. I’ve only recently have gotten a laptop that can handle big files so it’s been tough for me to get used to bigger sizes and resizing things can be a hassle !
Money wise, Redbubble gives the artist cut from the total profit of a purchase. You can move your cut up but then the product will be more expensive so I keep it at the default they have it in. When you create your redbubble account you connect it to your paypal (I’m not sure if you can connect it to a bank though) so the payments get sent there. You don’t get paid right away, the profit that you get has to reach at least $20 before they deposit it to your account the next month. So if you’re looking for fast money, then this might not probably be it. I find it’s good to have to give ppl good quality stuff, offer t-shirts and phone cases and you know, the money builds up and it can be a pleasant surprise to get a bit of money now and then. I like having Redbubble as a bit of a ‘back-up’ - it’s always there for ppl to look at and you can upload new items pretty easily and not worry about much. You can also buy your own product for yourself at a lesser price but I haven’t done that before /shrugs
I keep three 'stores’ though: Redbubble, Society6 and a Storenvy.I like Storenvy a bit more because it’s stuff I make/ship from home and I get the full cut - Storenvy purchases help me out a lot more than Redbubble, but then you handle the shipping,products,item qualities quantities, everything yourself but a lot of things can go wrong and I’ve learned a lot from the time I’ve had my Storenvy. I still mess up now and then where the dumb usps website gives me a different price then from the actual cost when I send something, but it’s something to learn for next time. I find shipping to be the most troublesome thing to handle but then again, it’s always nice personally sending something to someone and knowing they’ll be getting your art in the mail!
As for society6, I mainly got it so I could offer mugs but I think I only uploaded one but then forgot to keep uploading more stuff on there, so I don’t think a lot of people visit that one often hahaha and I don’t know society6 too much - I really did only sign up upload a mug then kind of forgot to go back and look at it more.
I mean you don’t HAVE to only have on store, you can always try out redbubble for starters, try out society6 or if you’re looking to sell your own stuff then Storenvy (or even etsy? ) are there too. I think bigcartel is also a site you can look at, but I can’t form an opinion on it, I don’t know it enough to really advise you.
Um..i hope this helps I hope I gave you the info you wanted, please check out the website yourself, Redbubble and Storenvy have blogs to help you with any troubles you might have, there’s always the FAQ you can look through and I hope you take the time to look through it and hope you make a decision! Spread the art love and prosper ! Good luck !
#EverythingIsADestielAU your pet/restaurant story. Dean is petsitting Sam's new dog while Sam goes out of town to visit Eileen for the weekend and all the other restaurants turned him away until he goes to Pearly Gates, a new restaurant in town where the the "blue eyes cutie" says his dogs is welcome and fawns over it.
The window rolled down to reveal Joseph Kavinsky in the driver’s seat, his eyes hidden behind white-rimmed sunglasses that reflected only the sky. The gold links of the chain around his neck glittered a grin. He had a refugee’s face, hollow-eyed and innocent.
He wore a lazy smile, and he mouthed something to Gansey that ended with “–unt.”
