The self-launch feature is available for all artists with Minted Artist Stores. It gives you the opportunity to launch products on Minted outside of the challenge process and allows you to freely express your own aesthetic, while taking advantage of Minted's high-quality paper, printing, and framing options.
You maintain the rights to all designs that you self-launch, while Minted handles all the customer service and fulfillment.
Artists receive the ability to self-launch when they are given their Minted Store. To maintain the ability to self-launch, we only ask that you continue to participate in Minted Challenges. Since challenges are so core to Minted and our artist community, submitting to at least three challenges every 12 months is required to be able to keep adding new products to your store. If you stop participating, you will lose the ability to self-launch new work.
