Become a Seller

Becoming the Best at anything is never easy or instantaneous. While the initial act of connecting with shops and galleries is relatively straightforward, the process of actually convincing retailers that your work is a "best seller" is far more difficult. Next, there is the process of asking for that first reorder.

Each year thousands of studio artists make the decision to add wholesale to their current retail art fair business model.  The truth is, 95% fail.  Not because they have bad work, but because they didn't have a plan.

There is no quick fix, and no short cut to success. Getting into the right show isn't the solution either. Unlike the initial steps you took to start your retail business, the process of launching a successful wholesale brand requires much more upfront planning.
