Society 6 does the printing and shipping and the artist gets a cut of the sales price, so you can feel good knowing you’re supporting an artist.

Since the site isn’t curated (meaning anyone can set up shop), you need to have a good eye and the patience to weed through some questionable choices. We have faith in you.

Redbubble also has a large collection of independent artists peddling their wares.
