Displate.com is a website and company that manufactures "exceptional Metal Posters," which have been created by one of their "amazing" artists in their volunteer art community who are supported when you purchase their products.
How Does It Work?
A displate is a metal poster that has been designed by one of the Displate.com artists to depict an artist scene, an iconic movie or pop culture figure, a clever saying or phrase, or anything else you could potentially come up with.
The displates automatically come with a magnet. The magnet will have an adhesive side that will be attached to the wall of your home where you'd like to display your metal poster, and the opposite side is what will hold your displate.
With such a wide variety of products available on their website, there is no way to quote a set price range for the items they create, though many of their displates are available for between $44 and $69.
Customers who are unhappy with their purchase for any reason should contact them for assistance or for instructions on returning their product. All displates except those ordered via "Create Your Own Displate" are available to be returned and refunded 100% up to 100 days after purchase, as long as it is in its original state and has never been hung.

As an artist its hard enough to sell your work but for a company to pick and choose what your allowed to sell and not sell even after a few weeks of it being uploaded is total bullshit. And to tell me that a portrait (mostly what I do), contains "adult material" when its from the neck up?! WTF?
If you are an artist don't put your work on this website, you can get banned for no reason and you don't get paid.
Their service is terrible, if you need help they reply in days.
Fascist attitude, they cut you out if and when they want.
I got accused of copyright breaking with no reason and they kept my money. On the website you see many people stealing other artists work, modify it and sell it, and they never get a ban.
In my case, i do photo manipulation and digital painting and i am always very careful about working with copyright-free pictures.
But they decided out of the blue, without explanations, that it was time to kick me out.
They kept my money and that's it.
Don't waste your time and money please, they are not worth it.
Free shipping somehow ends up with me eating $25 in customs and duties, which I find out about as the DHL guy is on the way to my door. Won't give it to me if I don't pay.
Ended up paying 100 dollars for a glorified fridge magnet with free shipping.
Customer service refuses to help me.
Never do business with Displate.
I registered recently a day ago and started uploading at least 6 of my pieces. The verification said it can take up to 24 hours. In other words, it should not go over 24 hours to simply look over some pieces to see if they are legit mines or not.
I do not like being told that something will take a certain amount of time and that person/company does not abide by it directly. Instead of having that misleading verification process time, how about saying it can take up to 2 or more days so people can get a better experience.
I use a different website called TeeSpring and if you're using copyright material the minute you post it, they simply disable it and send you an email. (I would know this considering I tried uploading one of my pieces of Homer, yet they found this a "Copyright" problem. Don't know why when there are several artists selling pieces of cartoon characters in their own styles as well.)
I rather them have that type of system than me waiting more than 2 days for my stuff to publish. I don't have that type of patience. Not saying I don't trust the website but, they need to improve that one area and I'll consider using it. Other than that, I have deleted my account
Well, the website sells stolen intellectual property, so...
I have purchased a total of 18 Displates over the course of 3 years or so, and will continue to purchase them. They are gorgeously made, and look stunning on my wall. The quality of the prints are exceptional. I have only had one issue; one arrived with some slight scratch damage. I emailed them about it, and they immediately shipped a replacement at no extra charge, AND allowed me to keep the damaged one. I have also inquired about extra magnets, like if I ever move, and they have told me they would provide new magnets for all of them free of charge when the time comes. Not only are the Displates themselves great, but I have nothing but praise for their customer service too. All in all, these things ROCK!
Bought 16 plates from them almost 2 years ago. Great product, shipped perfect. Had emailed them to get more magnets and they sent it with out a problem. Prices are decent too
I ordered a large poster, with the hopes of ordering more down the line if the quality was good enough. Unfortunately, I will have to pass.
Duty fees to Canada at the door were pretty steep and came as a surprise, since there is no message or warning during checkout.
The print is quite faded compared to the sample on the website. Additionally, the image was pretty blurry blown up on to a large poster. There isn't an easy way to tell on the site how much the quality will suffer when you go for a larger print.
The magnets for hanging the poster seem to hold well enough, although there isn't an easy way to move them and hang the poster somewhere else, and they don't include any extra magnets.
On the plus side, The metal definitely adds a cool dimension to the poster. Maybe if they address their quality issues, or lower the international price significantly I'll get a few more one day.
