Seven websites to sell art and photography

If your passion is in graphic design, illustration, photography, painting, or all of the above, then you can make money by submitting digital copies of your work to a variety of websites. You can sell your work as an art print and also on a whole wide range of products too.

If you are just starting out with selling online, then it can be helpful to get an overview of what you get from each website so that you can make an informed decision for where to start investing your time.

I have been selling my designs and photographs on Society6 for just over three years now, and in the last year I signed up to another seven platforms. In this post, I will compare each one on the commissions you can earn, the product range available, and the method of creating products.

Society6 Product Reviews

I have been an artist and customer of Society6 since 2014. As an artist, I earn money by selling my designs on products, and from time to time I order them so that I can photograph them in person, and enjoy them myself!

I’ve ordered a variety of products including mugs, throw pillows, a shower curtain, beach towels and tote bags.

Crawling into the mind of an artist, or anyone for that matter is an exciting and curious thought. To see how they get inspired, how they create something original.
