I've recently become quite popular on the tumbles due to being roped into a new fandom!
(That fandom being Osomatsu-san...If you're not watching that anime yet and you like stupid guys doing stupid funny stuff I
highly recommend it!) and it's brought on a lot people asking me if I sell my art anywhere.
I've been doing some of my own research but I was also hoping for some first hand accounts, opinions, and advice regarding the matter, so I'm asking pretty much everywhere what I should, could, or might not want to do!
So here are my questions:
Where do you sell your work? I'm not talking commissions--I'm wondering mostly about prints, buttons, shirts, stickers, etc--Also, do you print your work yourself? Or do you use a third party website/company to manufacture the items proper while you simply upload the designs? ((Basically, do you go out and order prints/shirts/buttons from a company and ship them from home? Or do you use something like Redbubble or Society6 which does it for you?))
Which is better? Or does it all just depend on ones own living conditions and organization?
If you do use Redbubble, how is your experience with it? Do they allow the selling of trademarked characters? Could I potentially draw a megamans or an osomatsu and sell it as a sticker or print?? Or would I be limited to original content?
If you're a buyer, have you bought from websites like those? Which do you prefer? In your experience what has been the best in terms of customer service and delivery?
Any other advice is very much welcome! Now that I'm going to college I'm tryna venture cross some new horizons!
Thanks in advance!
