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.
||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.
||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.
||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.
||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.
||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.
||Younger marketplaces are unable to replicate Threadless's tenure or experience.
||Threadless started in 2000 and pioneered the art-based t-shirt business model.
