ThreadStaff: MADE shops


How are the artists chosen?
Are their specific qualifications to be considered/selected?
How does payment work? Is it a percentage of sales, a lump sum, something else?
It's all so secretive.

Pretty sure it's royalties only.

I'm not sure how they're picked but it's royalties.

It's a standard POD payment for the designs and then royalties, supposedly.

All I know about being Made is that designs are paid on commission, like direct-to-garment prints. And that this won't be happening to me any time soon.

I've heard that actually getting the money for the MADE collections is another thing.

Dumb brain and slow internet. Royalties was the word I was looking for.

If its just royalties, I wonder what the average earnings has been.

i think no matter what payment system it's definitely amazing exposure for the artists...

Because I feel like they're saving up my work for one... right, Threadless? RIGHT?

There are so many people I would love to see get MADE collections. Especially some alums that don't have a ton of prints under their belts that have very distinctive styles. Like Mitch's collection. So amazing and so good.

Mitch's Made collection was the best so far... not necessarily because of which prints were chosen... but because it came as a result of the community banding together and supporting one artist

I agree. :-) They should let us vote on an artist to be MADE once a year.
