Once you click on the product type you wish to create, you will be taken through to the editor. Here you will upload your artwork and adjust the placement OR type in your caption and select your fonts and colours.

Once you are happy you can save your design. You will then be taken through to a page to enter a title, description and select some tags that will help with the filtering and organisation of your product.

You can select up to 10 tags, so choose wisely. Select the tags which emphasise the occasion, specific recipients or the style of the card. This will make sure it gets in front of the customers that are looking for a card like yours.

Manage Your Products

Can I edit a product?

You can edit the title, description and tags at any time.

Unfortunately you can not amend the artwork or design, if you want to change an upload, you will need to delete the original product and then submit the amended design.

I have 30 products, can I upload more?

An artist can only have 30 live products at any time. Therefore you will need to delete any products that you wish to replace before uploading another.

How will my products be seen?

Products by default are sorted by the number of accrued points.

We will be promoting uploaded products via our social media, newsletters and via press coverage.

How do I delete a product?

You can delete a product by going into one of your products. In the meet the artist section at the bottom of the page you will see the option to delete your product.
