Share Your Art
Creative Market: Sell your designs, website themes, fonts, photography and more on Creative Market.
TurningArt: TurningArt is a unique art rental marketplace for homeowners and workplaces. Artists earn royalties each time their work is rented, or when prints or originals are sold through the site.
Minted: Minted offers wedding invitations, stationery, home decor and other items from independent artists and photographers like you. Earn cash prizes for one-off contests and commission on ongoing sales of your work.
Redbubble: Join the network of more than 350,000 independent artists selling their creative work on Redbubble. You have control over the price of your work, with most artists earning 10 percent to 30 percent of the retail price.
Cafepress and Zazzle: These are a couple of the largest print-on-demand T-shirt and merchandise sellers. How it works is you upload your designs and create your own storefront. When someone buys a product, you earn a royalty on the sale, but never have to touch the inventory or ship the item; the company does it all for you. This has the potential to be a really cool passive income stream, especially if your designs can begin ranking on their own on Google.
Teespring: With Teespring, you create your own unique T-shirt designs and then market them to relevant audiences, earning the spread between your purchase price and the cost to produce. The interesting thing about Teespring is unless your campaign hits a minimum critical mass of orders (that you set), nothing gets printed and nobody gets charged.
Threadless: Create your own store and submit your T-shirt designs to a fun community of independent artists and fans. Like other print-on-demand clothing sites, Threadless allows you to make the spread between the purchase price and the cost, usually around $10 a shirt.
