WIDE ART SHOT

What is Redbubble?

Redbubble, found online at Redbubble.com, is a print-on-demand service that allows users to create t-shirts, hoodies, tank tops, iPhone cases, laptop sleeves, and more. Artists can use the site to upload their designs and make them available for sale.

Do I have to pay for a Redbubble account?

Artists who wish to sell products on the Redbubble marketplace do not have to pay anything! Simply put, all they have to do now is join up and then verify their account, which is completely FREE!

Is opening a Redbubble account easy?

Opening a new account is quite straightforward. When your account is verified via your email confirmation the initial account opening is completed. Go to your account settings and fill out your Payment Information.

You’ll also need to select your preferred currency when being paid.

How old do you have to be to sell on Redbubble?

Members must be at least 16 years old. Because individuals under the age of 16 are unable to enter into a legal contract with Redbubble, this is a legal requirement.

There’s also no need to buy anything or pay a fee in order to create listings and start selling.

Does Redbubble take a cut of my sales?

Redbubble takes a cut from each sale, which depends on the product type and pricing. This covers expenses such as production and printing costs.

You’ll also want to improve your Artist Margins. The profit you make from each sale is calculated by adding the markups you assigned to all product types. Do some checking on your competition to get a good idea of the prices you should be charging, be competitive!

How do I get paid?

Redbubble pays out earnings into your account, i.e., PayPal, however, there is a threshold before payments are released, once you have earned $20 or more in the previous month (before deductions).

Can my designs be printed on any type of product?

Yes, although there are some restrictions. You can upload and sell your fan art, check out the Redbubble Partner Program, and original artwork (like paintings and illustrations) on different product types: T-shirts, hoodies, mugs, phone cases, etc.

Can I use other people's images in my designs? What about copyrighted material?

You alone own the copyright to your designs, and you retain all rights to use them as you wish (within Redbubble’s guidelines). According to the site: “Redbubble doesn’t own or claim any right in user-uploaded Content, except those rights which we have.

You should not upload any design that includes someone else’s intellectual property without permission. However, it is possible to upload designs where the entire image or artwork has been created by you—as long as your original drawing, collage, painting, rendering, etc.

How much does the average person make on Redbubble?

I would think on average most artists are earning $1-$100 a month, however, sales cannot be guaranteed. Boost sales by using high-quality designs and artwork, as well as effective keyword tactics.

Optimize each design to display correctly on the wide variety of products available. This is vital to increase your sales potential, and furthermore, will appear more professional.

How long does it take my t-shirts to ship?

Products are shipped directly from our printing partner’s facilities, so delivery times vary based on your location. Express Shipping is available at the checkout stage.

What designs should I create for Redbubble?

Although personally I am a commercial artist and designer, and often produce artwork in a variety of niches, perhaps the greatest approach to gain sales is to target a specific niche and develop a solid reputation.

I am particularly interested in fine art and portrait art, however, I also enjoy graphic design and producing t-shirt designs.

So popular Redbubble niches are endless and always changing fast.

Therefore, try using some strategy to narrow down your product ideas using keyword research and brainstorm product ideas in a matter of minutes rather than hours.
