Artist Shops vs Typical POD Marketplaces
|Typical POD Marketplaces
I.e. Redbubble or Society6
|Your Brand Presence||With a basic profile page and limited customization options available to you, customers are easily distracted and browse around to other artists and products in a vast marketplace.||Your fully customizable, white-labeled e-commerce store puts your brand and designs front and center.|
|Ease of Use||Most marketplaces require you to create a new unique file for every individual product.||With just a single file, you can make your design available across hundreds of products.|
|Your Traffic||When you promote your profile, your customers are forced to create accounts for their marketplace and use that info to advertise other artists.||When you promote your Artist Shop, your customer only sees your brand and products, and with the customization options available to you, you can curate your customers' first impression perfectly match to your brand.|
|Marketplace Access||Your only presence is in the marketplace, with zero control over where your art is displayed.||In addition to your branded store, your art could also be displayed in the Threadless marketplace giving you access to millions of Threadless customers.|
|Offline Retail Opportunities||Your only sales channel is typically just the marketplace with no offline opportunities.||Threadless partners with Artist Shop owners to license their work to a growing collection of 14+ offline retail partners.|
|Marketing Support||You are regularly required to run whatever promotion the marketplace chooses and asked to promote it for them.||You can run your own promotions or leverage Threadless's 20 years of e-commerce experience and let us manage them for you.|
|Earnings Potential||Most Marketplaces only offer you 10% of a sale.||Threadless pays ~2x the market average per unit sold. You can set your own pricing or let us handle that for you.|
|Your Customers||Marketplaces do not let you know who your customers are.||Threadless allows you to build and access your customer list so you can share updates with your fans.|
|Years Experience||Younger marketplaces are unable to replicate Threadless's tenure or experience.||Threadless started in 2000 and pioneered the art-based t-shirt business model.|

One Size Does Not Fit All
Your online store should be uniquely yours. Your logo, your colors, your brand. That’s why Artist Shops are fully customizable. From adding lifestyle photos to your homepage to emailing your customers just to say “thanks!”, your Artist Shop is truly your own.
Sell Your Art On 100's Of Products
With Artist Shops, you can sell hundreds of custom one-off apparel, home decor, and accessory items. Choose specific products and styles to sell, or sell it all! Our editing tool makes customizing your products easy. No minimum order size, unlimited designs, unlimited possibilities.
How Much Money Can I Make?
It’s your shop; you choose to control prices or let us manage pricing and promotions for you. There are no minimums, no shipping costs, and no worries when it comes to customer service (we’ve got you covered). You even save money when ordering your own items, paying only the product cost (plus free shipping when you hit a certain price). With no production fees, it’s all profit!
|Example Price||-||Product Cost||=||Your Profit|
|T-shirts & Tanks||$27.50||$17.50||$10|
|Long Sleeve T-shirts||$36.00||$24.00||$12|
|Slim Phone Cases||$35.50||$24.50||$11|
|18" x 24" Art Print||$43.50||$29.50||$14|
|18" x 18" Throw Pillow||$35.50||$23.50||$12|
|4' x 6' Rug||$106.00||$86.00||$20|
|Queen Duvet Cover||$130.50||$110.50||$20|
For example, if you choose to set your own prices and sell 100 t-shirts in a week at the example price, that’s an extra $1,000 in additional weekly income in your pocket (or $52,000 per year)!

“I love seeing photos of different beings in my shirts from all over the p l a n e t - it’s seriously gratifying to see digital art become physical so easily! Being able to upload the design once and apply it to dozens of different products is super fun and easy. And they’re always working on new products, which is super exciting to me.”
“It's hard to keep all sizes in stock when you are self-producing. Which is exactly why I thought this was such a great opportunity to do this collaboration with Artist Shops.”
