Cool Websites: Thumbtack Press

Here's one for all you budding artists. Thumbtack Press is a website that makes selling prints a cinch. Much like the way that Cafe Press works for t-shirt design, Thumbtack Press provides the means for you to sell your art for a 35% commission of the sales price. Simply upload your design and they run the e-commerce cart, print the artwork and ship to the customer.

This site is great for new artists who want to test the waters, or even established artists who want to gauge the popularity of a new design without taking the risk of a bulk print run.

The folks at Thumbtack Press use a professional giclée process, with archival inks on a heavy bright white stock. The final print is trimmed to size and protected in an acid-free polyurethane sleeve before shipment in a reinforced box (not an envelope or tube). Here are all the Frequently Asked Questions. The site is curated and not all applications are approved to ensure that the quality level is high. Let me know when you've made your first sale!
