Do You Want to License Your Art? Here’s Your Contact List

By Carolyn Edlund

A recent reader’s poll on Artsy Shark indicated that many artists want to know more about the world of art licensing and how to get involved and build their businesses. thanks to Kate Harper, artist and author of the “Greeting Card Designer” blog, this has just gotten a lot easier.
With the help of her loyal readers, Kate has compiled, over eight long months, a comprehensive list of companies who accept submissions from artists. Below are the “a’s” from that directory to whet your appetite for more ~ which can be viewed here. Thank you, Kate!

  1. Please let me know anything about licensing. I am interested in extending my licensing opportunities. Thanks, Caroline

  2. Check out the licensing category here http://www.artsyshark.com/category/art-licensing/ or contact me by email at [email protected].

  3. Hello.
    Is it better to license directly to manufacturers or go through a licensing agency? Which manufacturers take outside submissions? Thank you

  4. Lana, it’s not “better” to do either. A licensing agent will take 50% of your royalties, so it is a decision that artists must make as to whether to pursue working with an agent or not. Plus, it can be very difficult to find an agent that will work with you, and can take quite a while to pursue that relationship.

    As far as manufacturers who take outside submissions, the list is in the article.
