Artists must be active on the Minted platform during the previous calendar year (i.e., has submitted to at least 1 Challenge). Qualification for the CMYK program is determined by your sales and/or number of Challenge wins during the previous calendar year.
Because Minted is a private company, we do not share sales numbers publicly and cannot share the exact sales percentages you need to reach to qualify at each level. That said, you can review the general differences in qualifications across the four CMYK levels below.
Artists qualify for the Y and K levels of the program based on the percentage of total Minted revenue that they account for in each of our 4 key categories: Holiday, Wedding, Baby & Kids, and Art. The same group of artists qualify for Y and K, but those who want to be exclusive with Minted can select the Black level (K), which offers additional benefits.
