    Be thoughtful with your bio. Some key benefits of having a great bio are:

    • Improves SEO and ability to be found through Google search
    • Allows customers to get to know the person behind the designs
    • Helps the Society6 team in selecting artists for features

     

  • Before uploading, please make sure that your files are saved in RGB and not CMYK. Files uploaded in CMYK will render with inverted color.

     

    Only JPG or PNG files will be accepted.

     

    Most products require different minimum dimensions to ensure a high print quality. If your goal is to enable all products Society6 has to offer including large format products like curtains, bedding, outdoor items, wall murals, and furniture, we recommend starting with a horizontal asset that’s 15000px x 9000px, a vertical asset that’s 8000px x 12000 px, and a square asset that’s 12000px x 12000px, at 300 dpi. For certain cut-and-sew products like backpacks, duffle bags, and all over graphic tees, we recommend referencing our print templates to ensure your artwork is correctly placed.

  • The Artist Studio is the tool that you use to upload new artwork, enable new products and set your markups on our fine art products. To access the Artist Studio follow these steps:

     

    Click on the avatar icon in the upper right corner and select "Manage My Posts" in the dropdown.

    Once you've arrived on the Artist Studio main page, you will see two tabs at the top right of the page. To upload your artwork files, use the "Add New Artwork" tab. You'll also see a tab labeled "Set Store Markups" where you can alter the price for your Art Prints, Framed Art Prints and Canvas Prints.

  • Artists have control over their personal markup on Art Prints, Framed Prints, Canvas Prints, Framed Canvases, Floating Acrylic Prints, and Recessed Framed Prints. The default markup on these products is 10%, but can be adjusted at any time. For these items only, artists will share in the promotional costs. This means the earning you receive will depend on the discount that the customer had when placing their order. All other products have an artist share of 10% and this is not affected in any way by discounts that a customer may have.

     

    To adjust the markups on an individual artwork, follow these steps:

    1. Navigate to the artist studio
    2. Click on the artwork you want to adjust
    3. From the artwork details page, scroll down until you see "Set Artwork Markup" on the left hand side. Click on this

    Any changes made will apply to this artwork only.

    To update the markups on all artworks in you store at once:

    1. Visit the Artist Studio and select “Set Store Markups” located towards the top right of the page next to the "Add New Artwork" tab.
    2. Make the desired updates to your markup percentages then click "Submit Changes"
    3. If you've already set unique markups on individual artworks, you will receive a pop-up asking if you'd like to keep your unique markups or to overwrite them with the new changes you've made. Make your selection then click "Submit"

     

    Set_store_markup.png

     

    If you choose to "Keep unique markups, but update everything else", the changes you make will only apply to any artworks that you have not set markups for on an individual level. 

    If you choose to "Overwrite unique markups and update everything else", every artwork in your artist studio will be updated with the changes you are making.

    A few things to note:

    • The final price that will display in your Artist Shop will always be rounded up to the nearest .99 cents to provide customers with a more consistent pricing experience across the site. The total in the markup tool reflects the unrounded amount. The difference in price between the unrounded subtotal and final price rounded to the nearest .99 will be included in your earnings. 
    • Markups are set as percentages of the base price. The default markup is 10%. 
    • If the base price of an item changes (ie. a sale or promotion applied), your artist margin changes.

    For a detailed walkthrough on how to adjust your markups and using all other Artist Studio tools, check out this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vwba_hS9k_M

  • Once you’ve uploaded your artwork, you’ll want to make sure it can be found. In addition to sharing links to your shop and products with potential customers, you'll need to include relevant metadata to your artwork.

     

    With tagging and description fields built seamlessly into Society6’s upload process, you’re in total control of your own discoverability–and it starts with high-quality metadata. This is one of the most important steps in increasing the visibility of your designs in our marketplace. Artists who have proven success are very thoughtful when it comes to the information added here.

     

    Pro Tips:

    • Keep your title brief yet unique. The closer your title is to what someone is searching for, the more likely you’ll show up in search results.
    • Including your display name/username in your tags is also helpful for getting your products found within search results.
    • When adding tags, think about the words your customers would be searching for. 
    • Do not add repetitive tags. (i.e "fall botanicals", "fall", "botanicals")
