    Do the artists get any royalties for sales?
    Or do all the artists who don’t sell the most prints get nothing from sales from now until infinity?

    Sounds like a cool project, but it’s unclear from the description whether artists who submit prints will receive a portion of print sales. The above description makes it seem like the only compensation for having a print being sold is the possibility of wining an iPad (if your print is a top seller).

    Could you clarify this for those of us interested in submitting?



  3. Yeahhh!!! I´am gonna participate!!

    Hey Everyone,

    The idea is very similar to the way Threadless works except you do make a 20% of each sale made. It’s a win win if you artwork gets selected.

    So 20% per sale before shipping, plus a chance to win $500 or an Apple iPad, its your choice.

    thanks for the questions, sorry for the confusion.
