Even though has a good reputation, the competition has grown fierce. Many other websites have taken away from their customer base.

This has had a significant impact on the artists’ earnings and consequently they have not been making as much money as they once had. Another pitfall that artists are succumbed by is the number of other designers and shop owners on

They rip-off designers
June 29, 2018
These guys are scammers. First they tell you that you earn 15% commission on all sales but then months later you find out it was a lie and they're only giving you 5%. Then I find out that you also have to pay a monthly "shop fee". There is no way to make any sort of profit under these circumstances. Also, when you call to inquire about your earnings they're very, very cagey about telling you anything and the mysteriously can't find your information. They're either complete scammers or totally incompetent at business, and I believe it's there former.

Horrible company! Do NOT order!
December 28, 2016
I ordered a pug ornament. It was delivered late. It was a cheap ceramic piece of crap that was not even printed correctly -- was printed off-center. It looked nothing like the picture of the product online. I paid $18.39, so I expected something with at least some type of quality. Forget about it. They should be ashamed. This is a horrible company! Do NOT order from them!!!!!
