A Store (formerly called a storefront) is your customizable platform to build your brand and launch your products on Minted, completely outside of the challenge process. With your Store, you can:
Focus on what you love and let us do the rest
- We want to help you focus on doing what you do best – creating art and design. Invest in creating a great piece, launch it in your Store, and then never spend time again on printing, packaging, and shipping products. Easy!
Take advantage of Minted’s product development
- From beautiful new framing options to creative new substrates and papers, Minted’s product development becomes yours to offer to your customers on your Store. For example, we offer framing of art prints up to 30”x40” in a range of options including reclaimed barnwood.
Launch and test new products
- You can now launch high-quality products in your Store without going through the challenge process (“self-launch”). You can self-launch non-customizable art prints, fabrics, wrapping paper, and A2 and A7 stationery.
Build a branded destination
- Make your Store your own! Upload images and fill out your profile to tell your story to customers. The Store highlights your awards from Minted Challenges to help build trust with Minted customers, so keep submitting! Share your Store with a personalized URL: $%Link%.
Acquire customers and build your business
- Your Store is linked everywhere your name appears on Minted, getting you exposure with Minted customers. You are guaranteed profit on every order placed on Minted for your products. Challenge winning art prints earn higher commissions and better visibility on category pages than self-launched products.
Minted Stores are in a "beta" period through the end of 2015. This means that we will be experimenting to see what works for our customers and our sellers. During this first year, we will be suspending all listing fees and showing some self-launched art on our art category pages along with the competition winners. Take advantage of this beta period!
