Brand new online marketplace pledges to offer artists and shoppers what competitors don’t
April 4, 2017 sees the launch of Inktale, the new online marketplace that allows artists to sell their designs on custom print products while maximizing their control over profit and customer outreach.
Inktale is determined to give all other online marketplaces a run for their money with its simple, straightforward approach and particular devotion to artists seeking opportunities to sell their work to a broader audience. With Inktale, artists upload their designs, choose the product categories to sell on, and set their respective end prices in record time.
“We’re launching Inktale because there’s serious room for improvement in the online marketplace industry. Today’s popular platforms don’t always offer the best margins, and they limit artists’ control over their customers and products. We want to provide what Zazzle, Redbubble, Society6, and others are lacking,” says Niks Evalds, co-founder of Inktale.
Unlike with most marketplaces and ecommerce platforms, there are no upfront or subscription fees – Inktale only profits when a sale is made as the product base price already covers the service fee and manufacturing costs. Inktale also offers the seller the rare chance to see who’s purchased their work and communicate with them outside the platform. What’s more, Inktale’s artists can earn up to 6x more than anywhere else, even by selling their artwork on regular crew neck t-shirts.
In order to guarantee high product and printing quality, Inktale is partnering up with the print-on-demand drop shipping company Printful. Every order will be printed and shipped from one of Printful's two fulfillment centers in California and North Carolina.
As of today, Inktale is available for anyone to join – from artists ready to generate profit on a new and easy online marketplace, to customers searching for unique, one-of-a-kind product designs. Future plans for the company include setting up an Instagram integration, expanding the list of available product categories and enabling advanced profile customization options.
