I’ve just opened a new shop with society6 because of their range of products and the professional look of the shop galleries, but I’m interested to hear the opinions of people already using the site to sell their work. I’ve spotted Jess Smart Smiley‘s illustrations on there and Alastair‘s photography, but wondered if anyone else on here uses it too and how they think it compares with other print-on-demand sites like RedBubble, CafePress and Zazzle.
Here’s what the shop looks like so far!
Feel free to follow me on there if you’re interested in the work too.
I’m interested to know what you think.
I’ll probably be posting more on Sterry Cartoons soon because university term ends in less than a week and as soon as exams finish, I have a job interview at Plymouth Arts Centre and would really love to get it!
If you want to wish me luck and motivate me to doodle faster, I’d massively appreciate some more likes and shares of the cartoons on the Sterry Cartoons facebook page! Show anyone who might like them! 😀
Hope you’re all having a good week!

Jumps up … “me .. me .. me ..” Then I noticed you said my name hehe. That’s what I get for jumping up quickly haha. I prefer your S6 logo to mine. I think I will change mine.
I was using PhotoShelter, but that ended up costing me. What I don’t like about S6 is the length of time it takes to get money. Over a month sometimes. If you sell something on 5th or 6th of July, you won’t get the money until September. It takes 30 days for it to clear, and then you get the money on the first of the month
RedBubble, CafePress and Zazzle are all quite slow to pay too – they have thresholds that you have to reach before they’ll pay out. Zazzle is the slowest – if you’re outside America, you have to fill in a W8-BEN form before they’ll pay you anything and they take ages to process it. RedBubble has the lowest threshold and looks quite tidy, but not many people visit the site looking to buy, unless they’re linked there from somewhere else, so it can still take a long time to earn anything from it.
That’s awful!! With Paypal you don’t need those forms and stuff
