As said in my previous blog post, I’ll describe each website in detail.
So what is society 6?
Society 6 was the first e-commerce website that I first registered with. I heard about it through Youtube. I found out that you could have your artworks printed in their 30+ available products. You just need to pay $1 to become a registered artist/seller.
Uploading an artwork takes a bit of time, although I’m not sure if its just my internet at home. The photo above shows the next page once you’ve uploaded your artwork. Even typing the title, tags, and description has a bit of typing lag/delay. It’s weird!
From there you could adjust the prices for the art print, framed art print, and canvas prints. But you can’t adjust the prices anywhere else. To make your artwork available to their other products, you need to edit and resize it to the required dimensions. It can take a bit of time to get used to this, but when you finally upload your work it’s rewarding in a weird way.
You can find templates for society 6 products on their website or online from other people. Some products that I’d want to try next time are the backpacks & duffle bags. I’m not sure yet how my flowers would look on those products! Haha.
Another cool thing about Society 6 is that sometimes they offer free shipping! They’re the most frequent website that offers this promo. They also have different promos every other week so be sure to check the site out.
Overall I’m happy with Society 6. By uploading my artworks, I get a bit of passive income that goes straight to my paypal account every end of the month. I also get to improve my photoshop skills by editing my artworks and learning new techniques to make my workflow faster.
The only thing left is to market myself more. HAHA.
