“Print-on-Demand (POD) companies offer artists the possibility of online revenue streams with the ease of outsourced production, distribution, and customer service. Artists face a plethora of POD providers and product choices. Finding the right fit for one’s studio is essential to a positive online POD experience. Stephen has tamed this territory and offers us a streamlined down system for navigating the print on demand platforms.
He has found ways to, indeed make a good living from them. He will share his secrets, his cautions about time wasters, and his insights on how to create a path for ourselves in the print demand scenario that can bring us income. This presentation, alone, features incredible, artistic work but also a perfect opportunity to figure out whether or not the print on demand marketplace is our cup of tea. He works with fine Art america, pixels.com, and several other POD platforms.
