NOT PUT UP LINKS FOR COMMERCIAL SITES WHO ASK FOR THEM SO PLEASE DON'T SPAM
ME TO ASK FOR THAT!!! . If you want to advertise your
commercial site here, you need to
go through Project Wonderful to do that and meet my criteria for
advertising! I like
the sites here to be things I'm familiar with. I will
consider links to artists who ask if I like their work. I'm picky like that.
While link backs are appreciated, I don't require them for having your link
here. Please note, that I am in no way responsible for any adult content
which may be on the linked sites.
Center for Hearing & Speech
Being partially deafened by continuous ear infections as a child, I can
definitely support an organization which helps teach deaf children to
speak and helps them to get procedures such as cochlear implants to let
Homeless & Orphaned Pet Endeavor
Houston Pagan Pride Day has supported this wonderful homeless pet
shelter for several years now. They are among the best no-kill shelters
in Houston! Awesome, awesome people the Pagan Pride volunteers love for
Shepherd Conservation Society
You've seen them on Animal Planet's "Whale Wars". Now you can
support these sea-faring warriors in their battles against whaling and
the slaughter and destruction of other sea life. Donate, purchase
merchandise, apply for a Visa card which gives part of your purchases
back to the organization or take a more active role! You can also
subscribe to their newsletter to stay informed about Sea Shepherd
You saw them on Extreme Home Makeover, now you can help support the good
work they do! Though EHM revitalized their shelter, the support needs to
continue as the feeding and care of all of those animals is ongoing.
Texans, show your love for these wonderful folks who help our furry
Villalobos Rescue Center
I have great respect for Tia Maria Torres and the
sacrifices she makes to run the nation's largest pit bull rescue. And
she helps parolees who want to help themselves by turning their lives
around as well.
Daz 3D's art gallery/community site.
Growing daily and presenting feature chats and other cool events!
Another site with tons to offer. Their designer tool isn't as
feature rich and is a little clunky, but still cuts your production
time. Major downside: not as much control over pricing. Their
marketplace pricing (what most people see) can be high enough to drive
customers away at times or skewed to only give you a penny (or nothing)
in some cases
Submit your Doctor Who themed tee designs here for limited time
As long as you're careful not to put your art up unmarked
so it won't get swiped and pay close attention to the VALUE they're
putting on your art when they have a contest, DA can be a fairly nice
place to hang out with other artists and sell art stuff if you wish.
Gallery site specifically for fantasy and sci-fi art. Open to amateurs.
Submit your pop culture tee designs here for limited time sales.
Growing gallery/community site specifically for
artists who create sci-fi, fantasy and horror art.
Fine Art America
Another "fine art" site seasoned with genre art. This one gets a lot
of international traffic from what I've seen.
Primarily a "fine arts" community, but generously seasoned with
fantasy and sci-fi artists. Tends to be less clogged with the childish
drama that can go on with gallery sites
Fresh Brewed Tee
Another pop culture tee site where you can submit your designs for
limited time sales. This one has the added bonus of extended Plus and
Tall sizes which a lot of them don't.
A variety of neat and nerdy shirts and other merchandise. You have
to apply and be accepted in order to sell on this site.
Once Upon A Tee
Yet another resource for getting your pop culture designs published
for limited time tee sales.
Another pop culture timed tee site where you can submit your
designs. This one works on a popular vote system, so it's better suited
to artists who have a very large and supportive fan base where the
majority of them will vote for your designs. New designers without that
supportive fan base usually won't do so well.
Pop Up Tee
Another pop culture oriented timed tee sale site where you can
Great advertising resource for artists & small businesses. Bidding
on ad space on a diverse selection of sites often allows you to
advertise for free on sites which have an audience overlap with your
subject matter. Offering good ad space on your site generally will pay
for monthly advertising campaigns if you have steady traffic.
A more fine art/true designer oriented
merchandise site minus all of the people rehashing the works of old
masters, internet memes and lousy clip art. Limited scope of
merchandise, but adding work is super fast and there s a nice artist
cmmunity at work on the site.
Pop culture oriented site which does limited time sales on tees and
other merchandise. You can submit your designs.
A great source for digital artists as well as traditional artists and
writers. Great freebies and great forums. Contests and events galore!
Submit your designs for limited edition t-shirt sales!
A lesser known merchandise site. The competition isn't quite as huge
here. They also have some really cool things other sites don't offer,
like metallic, fuzzy and fluorescent print media. Their shop building
system does leave a lot to be desired, though. It is not feature rich at
Sun Frog Shirts
A very simple shirt selling platform if you want something easy to
maintain and manage.
Submit your pop culture designs for limited edition t-shirt sales!
This is one of the most popular limited sale tee sites out there.
One of the friendliest sites toward pop culture designs on the
net where designers have full control of their shops. They have a 3-day
sale to celebrate the addition of new designs to the site. I've made
more money in shorter time on TeePublic than any other site and highly
recommend them to indie designers! They do lots of promotions and really
get your designs out there. I've ordered shirts from them and the
quality is pretty good as well.
Another pop culture oriented timed tee sale site where you can submit
your designs. This one also takes the occasional non-pop culture
artistic tee if it's creepy, dark or horror oriented
Another timed tee site where indie designers
can submit their pop culture themed designs for limited edition tee
Massive amounts of products from t-shirts to
tea pots and everything in between. Their feature rich product designer
means you can make a few versions of your image and design to your
heart's content with little fuss. Excellent marketing by Zazzle to
lighten your load, too.
An excellent snack subscription service with delicious, nutritious
goodies to fuel your creativity. I love this service! I've been really
impressed with the quality and flavor of everything I've gotten from
them so far and I'm a fairly picky snacker.
My Party Shirt
More than just shirts! They've got a nice selection of pop culture
items which is constantly evolving.
Billed as your monthly Comic Con in a box, this subscription service
sends you a box of nerdy goodies including a tee and collectibles. You
can also get arcade, horror or kid-friendly blocks.
Raw Spice Bar
Like to cook with exoctic spices? Then this subscription service is for
Yep, you read that right. It's $6 shirts with nerdy, cool, crass and
crazy things on them.
