Self-launched art prints do not go through Minted Quality Control at all. Nobody at Minted will review your self-launched art, so please take great care when preparing and launching your files to ensure that they print well for your customers! See our File Prep Guides here.
Artists who are able to self launch directly to the art marketplace earned this ability through their participation in art challenges. This means they have successfully had at least one (generally many more) art prints pass the rigorous quality control process that all winning works must go through. We feel most artists may then be trusted to continue to submit files correctly and maintain the level of quality our customers expect.
Once you submit your self-launched fabric design, one of our Quality Control Associates will look your files over to make sure they're ready to launch. The team will be checking things like whether the pattern repeats seamlessly yard to yard. If there's a problem with your fabric, you'll get an email explaining what the problem is and be able to re-upload your fixed files. If everything looks good, your fabric will launch on Minted!
Please Note: The quality check process will take 1-2 weeks.
