Artist FAQ's

This photo shows the format for each sticker sold through this program:

If I grant permission to a retailer to use my artwork to promote the resale of the stickers they purchased from me, does that mean they can make more stickers (or shirts or mugs or anything else) with my artwork on it?
No, your permission does not authorize the retailer: (i) to sell or manufacture additional products bearing your artwork, whether stickers or any other product type and whether printed-on-demand or otherwise; (ii) to sell a digital copy of your artwork; or (iii) to use your artwork in any way that is not in connection with the resale of the specific sticker(s) originally purchased from you.

If I grant permission to a retailer to use my artwork to promote the resale of the stickers they purchased from me, can they sell or make print-on-demand products with my artwork on it?
No, your permission does not authorize a retailer to sell or manufacture new stickers or any other product printed with your artwork, whether printed on demand or otherwise.

The below examples show the type of assets we would share with the retailer to promote the resale of purchased stickers, if you grant permission:

Can retailers sell the stickers they purchase from me on their websites?
Yes, after a retailer buys stickers from you through Retail Ready, they can resell them in their physical brick-and-mortar locations as well as online through their e-commerce sites.

Does this program prevent me from selling the same designs outside of Redbubble?
No, there are no exclusivity parameters around works you sell on Retail Ready.

Will all of my designs from my marketplace shop get moved over to Retail Ready?
No, stickers included in the Retail Ready program are curated internally based on the trends and needs of the retail market. Only a select number of Redbubble marketplace works are eligible for the program. The quantity of artwork selections on the Retail Ready is immensely smaller than on the Redbubble.com marketplace.

What is the base price the stickers will sell for (barring sales, incentive price etc.)?
The base price for a pack of 25 stickers is $41.25. The minimum order quantity for retailers is 5 packs.

Does the sticker include the name of the artist?
Yes, every sticker displays information on where more of your products can be found, including your Redbubble shop name. :)

Where are the retailers located?
At this time, the Retail Ready Program is for United States based retailers only.

Will my Retail Ready sales be shown or included on Redbubble marketplace account Sales History?
Retail Ready transactions are separate from your marketplace transactions.
If you’ve made a Retail Ready sale, you will not see those transaction details on your marketplace dashboard.
