One of the most active artist communities in the world, Society6 empowers artists to make their artwork immediately available for sale as a variety of products, without giving up control of their rights.
Society6 is probably one of the most well-known POD sites on the internet. It has a large following base, artist base and turnover. It was recently sold to DM Commerce for a staggering $94 Million, with an aim to help develop the site into a better functioning POD site.
Society6 started out as a spot for artists to come and post work for art prints and like and follow other talented artists, but today has evolved into a multi-product service outlet for print-on-demand requirements. Some of their lines are very popular, some have failed and been removed from the roster.

Society6 is one of the more well-known POD sites. It is a good starting point to get your feet wet in the POD process. That said, there are too many artists on the site, many uploading almost about anything hoping to make a fast buck. There are some issues with some of their products and many have had comments about shipping. If you want to try your hand at the system of POD art selling, this is a good starting point.
