Was pretty much just a dumbfuck kid and thought taking commissions through a storefront would be a good idea for some reason. Rediculously underpriced myself because overexcited to start making money with art, etc.

What followed was basically all the hallmarks of some dumbfuck kid not taking the platform seriously. I'd forget to mark old completed orders "shipped", just let the handful of disputes and etc. that popped up lapse so they'd get their $5 refund.. I often ignored etsy's messaging/dispute system and just apologized directly to people through fA/dA (from where I had redirected to the etsy). I only offered $5 and $8 commissions and made like ~$200 total.

This was like four years ago, but the shop termination email is pretty much "don't use etsy ever again, we'll just close your new account" so I haven't bothered trying even though I have actual merch and live off my art now."

I'm obviously not about to commit that level of fraud just to sell bits of plastic with cute anime junk printed on them.

People have been really spoiled by chinese manufacturing. They require high moq because they only want corporate customers. They do not want small artists who are just starting out as customers, because there is no money for them there. The trend of small time artists manufacturing these kinds of merchandise is really recent, and many of these companies don't feel obligated to support them, because it doesn't benefit them. Particularly when small time artists can potentially be such difficult customers as well. Low moq is a precious gift of this era and should never be taken for granted."

Just do some middleman dropshipping service like printful or something, where t-shirts are around ~8-12 dollars. You can put them up in your online store or if you want to have physical stock for a con you can just order some for yourself and then bump the price up to $20 or more.

T-shirts are a much more "luxury" item compared to just some keychains or whatever, so getting a super low price with a low MOQ is usually impossible, or if you find one the quality is disgusting. Just accept it."

Don't bother, find a local print service. It's expensive but that's the only way you're going to get low minimums, and you don't have to worry about art theft. You can try Jak prints or Digital art wear in the US. What most people are doing right now is using arts co but it's just as expensive unless you catch one of their sales.

Like others mentioned, it's better to start with screen printed shirts, you can get them done much cheaper"

Jury anon here again!
How our process works is we do an initial weeding that basically amounts to two piles of, "This looks alright or better" or, "Well that's shit." After that we do a second round with the rubric, and anything that scores well on 4/5 sections on the rubric makes it to The Table.

On The Table all the portfolios are spread out so we can see one page of work from each artist at a glance. Then we commence culling down to the actual number of tables we have based on making sure we have a variety of fandoms, art styles, and merchandise types.

Anyone who makes it to the table gets put on the waitlist. The first work pulled from The Table is at the bottom of the waitlist, and the person who gets culled last is at the top of the waitlist. Generally, the last ten or so artists culled take as much time to debate as the rest of the jury process combined because at that point they're ALL great, we just don't have enough table space.

So if you're at the top of a waitlist, it means someone cancelled last minute and we got to pull in an artist we loved anyways. If you're at the bottom of a waitlist, it means we had competing dates with another con and all our faves left us for the other con and you're good enough I guess. (both cases are things that have happened)

But of course that's only one con's perspective."

It's a tricky situation to be sure.

That said, a few people have asked me to standard mail small decals and I've never heard of one arriving bent in 3 years now. I use a 6x8 mailer and fold it over. It seems sturdy enough."

Buddy you realize a lot of people are there to meet artists a bit like they are celebrities right? If you bought a print from a legit famous artist and then got to meet them you might ask them to sign it, wouldn't you? Plus if you got famous the print would be worth more in ebay.

I wish more juries were run the way your con runs things. I had inside info from my local big convention that they judge on a rubric but each jury member just takes a different batch of applicants, so someone might get judged differently just depending on the juror that got them.

"Hey could I get some help?
When i had my first con a year ago i came on here to ask for some advice which helped me to x3 what i earn at Cons. It's not much but at least i break even and make a little profit so i'm really grateful for that. After a year of doing Cons (5 in total) i've noticed that i'm reeeally bad at engaging with the customer. I usually just look up and smile and then look down again. Also i have a really bitchy face expression and when i smile it looks like i'm in pain (at least to me lol). Is there anything i can do about it? I'm thinking of dressing up and just hand them a flyer when they are at my table and say "feel free to bother me if you need anything" and then do something else, but is this okay to do?
Also i tried out different merchandise throughout that year but what worked best for me are buttons and prints. I've only tried out mini prints for now and have like ~25. And buttons around ~40. My buttons are mostly original and a good half of my Prints are original too. All other Prints are from a bit niche fandoms (like south park for example and various games). Should i expand to bigger fandoms? Or start offering bigger prints? Or try to continue with different merch? I tried out charms for example, but they didn't really worked for me as of now (granted i only have 4 big charms and 6 small charms).
I would extremly appreciate any sort of advice or insight and i'm sorry for any english mistakes."

">>10011866
I wouldn't recommend handing them something. I always get really annoyed if someone tries to hand me anything unless I've asked for it first. But letting them know that they can bother you if they need something is not a bad move. I know you want the flyer as a sort of lead in to speaking but just saying "Let me know if you need any help" is perfectly fine. A lot of customers don't actually want to engage with you, because they know you're trying to sell them stuff; they just want to know you're available if they decide to buy.

As for your other questions, I sell niche stuff too so I can't really help there. Obviously you can make some money if you identify the flavor of the month things and make one or two items for that, but you have to be pretty limber and really stay on top of it, so it can be exhausting, and bad calls can end in tons of unsellable merch. Its so much more satisfying IMO to make the things that I like, connect with the fans who like the same obscure stuff that I like, even if I'm not making 100k a year.

You could also consider moving into "original" aesthetic stuff? Succulents, cute animals, witchcraft, etc. Broadens your audience a bit without relying on a fandom, and doesn't require you to go full OC and all the drawbacks that come with trying to market original works."

I draw on 3000px squared, but you can just draw them at the size you want them to be? Just remember to set the proper resolution beforehand. And worst case scenario, yes, most suppliers will resize it for you but be prepared for inconsistency or not having exactly what you envisioned."

proactively engage with people. im not likely to interact with a rando's art, but if that rando is a follower who frequently comments and retweets/reblogs/otherwise engages with me first, i'll remember their username and avatar and will often return the favor"

I feel like Twitter is easiest when you have people you know who are already active on it. When I first started using Twitter in earnest, I was lucky to have friends who were already established on there. They would @ me and RT my art and their followers which in turn helped me gain a comfortable following. Having your Twitter handle listed on your business cards and handing them out at cons helps too. If customers post pictures of my booth or merch they bought from me, I make sure to RT and thank them! You gotta engage to have engagement back."

And here lies the main problem with Twitter. Get lucky and be friends with someone that is popular"

I guess this depends on your definition of "popular"? Most of my friends had like 1k-ish followers when I first started out which isn't super amazing by Twitter standards. What matters is that you're constantly interacting with other artists. Do you like and RT other artists' tweets? Do you @ them regularly? This is how I ended up making mutuals who also engage with my tweets thus increasing my visibility on that platform."

People with attitudes like this never get any where. Focusing on only popular people means you will ignore your actual peers and while they slowly gain popularity by doing their thing and being friends with each other you are left in the dust by chasing popular artists who already have a friend circle."
