December Newsletter

Wishing all of our members a healthy, happy, and creative holiday season!


Introducing: a New Control Panel

You will be seeing a new control panel in the next few days. We have been working on this for over 6 months and believe it marks a big step forward for us. The design is, we believe, considerably more intuitive than the current iteration, which means that setting up and maintaining your site will be simpler than ever. If you have any questions or concerns, contact us at [email protected]


Art makes great gifts!

As we approach the holiday season, remember that art makes great gifts! Don't forget to offer your work for sale, either as originals or through our Prints-on-Demand program, so that people can easily share your art as a gift.

And don't forget that an Artspan membership makes a great gift for an artist--help them to build their career!


New Social Media Buttons

Be sure to take advantage of our new social media buttons to link to your instagram, tumblr, and google plus accounts.


December Referrals Special

Through the end of the year, you get one month free if you refer one artist; two months free if you refer two; and FOUR months free if you refer three new artists to Artspan. Our best offer ever!

Artspan's Blog

On the Artspan Blog, we began a series on advice to get your work out there! We had a list of sites that accept fine art submissions, and a list of sites that accept jewelry, wearables, and craft submissions. This month we added a list of resources for artists, and a list of magazines that accept submissions.
