About Society6

 

Society6 was founded by Justin CooperLucas Tirigall-Caste and Justin Wills.

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.

Remember!

Some info on Society6

Society6 has an excess of people uploading work, which is not curated or monitored for infringement, quality or commercial viability. They tend to have “stabled” artists who they promote and feature, so you get lost in the crowd.

Some of their products have had issues with the quality, especially their new All-Over Tees. As an artist, the 30 grace period has issues with fraudulent purchasing.

No watermarking on their images.

Artists can order own work at a discount, and have multiple accounts (as long as there is a different email). Notable issues as well, is very weak support system and shipping has been reported as being bad.

If you join as an artist you are required to pay $1 validation fee for connecting your PayPal account.

Summary

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.
