"All Rights Reserved", a Society6 Art Book Series: Collaboration Overview
Today, we’re proud to announce that Society6 will publish its first edition of what we hope will become an ongoing series of full color, internationally distributed art books.

“All Rights Reserved” is not just a title, it is the very reason Society6 was created - to empower the world's artists to profit from the sale of their artwork, without giving up control of their rights!

All you have to do for now is 'apply' for this collaboration by clicking the purple "apply" button.

You will be notified via email for inclusion in this first edition book.

Other art publications from Society6 include:

“The New Twenties” Art Book (produced and distributed by our friends at IdN)

“Whiteout” Limited Edition Zine http://society6.com/product/Whiteout-Zine

“Us And Them” Limited Edition Zine http://society6.com/product/Us-And-Them-Zine

We'll be posting more information about getting involved as we go, so please stay tuned...

Society6 Minutes: MINE from Jerzy Goliszewski


Since 2009 Jerzy has been sharing his creative viewpoint with the Society6 community. Just one look at his installation work and you are struck by the planning, dedication and vision required to develop and execute these works of great detail.

When we saw some of his recent video installations we asked him to contribute to Society6 Minutes. He was kind enough to share this ironic and beautiful piece with us. Please enjoy a macro minute where Jerzy shares a view of nature rarely seen and appreciated. http://vimeo.com/channels/society6

He's also issued a print to go along with it so stop and check that out too, http://society6.com/JerzyGoliszewski/...MINE_Print

To learn more about Jerzy and his body of work you can view his about page right here on Society6 http://society6.com/JerzyGoliszewski/about

Society6 Minutes: Mine
Jerzy Goliszewski, Warsaw, Poland
Music - chinawoman "i'll be your woman" from the party girl album.

"I'll be your woman with unwavering eyes
Aflame with the spirits and the mysteries of life
The hands of a healer and a samurai
I'll be your woman and you can be mine."

Pricing and Categorizing Your Work to Sell
When you sell an Art Print on Society6 you determine your Profit (how much you want to make), as well as the Retail Price (how much your customer will pay). The best selling members on Society6 know that their work must be both easy to buy AND easy to find.

Think about the customer's point of view. You've already determined how much you would like to make (profit) from each piece, now it is important to think about what your Retail Price is saying...

Tips for making your products easier to buy:

1. On the Post page, when you set your pricing, please use a Retail Price that you're accustomed to seeing when you make a purchase. For example, assigning a whole number for Your Profit of $5.00, will likely give you an odd Retail Price of $17.68. So always think about your Retail Price and shoot for a whole number. In the example above, the Retail Price of $17.68 would be far "easier to buy" at either $17.00, or even $18.00. You can always change your pricing by clicking "Edit" at the top of any post. Do not delete the post or you will have to upload your image again, and you will lose all previous Promotions you have received for this post.

2. Think about using the Pricing Filters in the Shop to your advantage. Price your Mini Art Prints at above $20, and they won't show up under one of the most popular filters in our Shop!

Tips for making your products easier to find:

1. When you post your work for sale, just use the name of the work for the Title of your Post. You don't need to add additional words like "... Art Print", or "New Version..." or "by Artist's Name". Just use the Title of the work.

2. Carefully select the Categories that you would like for your work to appear under in the Shop. You must choose at least 1 Category (up to 4). Selecting Categories that don't represent your artwork may result in removal from the Shop.

3. Only add a Description if it helps to tell the story. Adding a Description is a good way to share your inspiration for each piece, and let people in on your creative process.

Society6 Art School: we may not help you create better art, but we sure will help you sell more of it.

File Preparation for T-shirts
It's no surprise that when it comes to selling more of your t-shirts, it all comes down to paying attention to the details. Here is what the best selling members on Society6 do:

1. Be sure to add t-shirts to accompany each of your art prints in order to round out your product mix. You are automatically prompted to "Add T-shirts & more" with each new art print that you post for sale. You can also go back and add t-shirts later by clicking "Add T-shirts & more" at the top of any previous art print post you have made.

2a. Dark & light garments (PNG). To allow for full color spectrum printing on dark garments we require a PNG file. Because we lay down a white ink underbase any white in your design will print. Remove the background from your file and save with transparency as needed.

2b. Light garments only (JPEG). To allow for full color spectrum printing on light garments only (no dark garment options), you may upload a JPG file. With this option, we do not use a white ink underbase and any white in your design will not print. Try to avoid a boxed design by using white for your background (as white becomes transparent).

3. Position your artwork within the printable area so it is properly placed on the chest of the T-shirt. Make sure that your artwork is centered within your 3300px (width) X 5100px (height) RGB color mode JPEG file saved at maximum quality.

4. Make sure that your artwork is aligned all the way to the top edge of your file. We will automatically create the space between your artwork and the neckline of the t-shirt when we print it (the placement), please do not add extra space between the top of your file and your artwork.

5. Check your previews after you upload your t-shirt file, click to zoom and make sure it looks like something you'd be proud to sell, and proud to own on each color option that you select (or remove by deselecting). If it doesn't look good, delete the file, noodle the original and upload something that will make you happy.

About Society6 T-shirts:
The softest, smoothest, best-looking t-shirt available anywhere. We use American Apparel™ T-shirts, which are made with 100% fine jersey cotton (Tri-fit tees contain 50% polyester / 25% cotton / 25% rayon) combed for softness and comfort. Available in both Men's and Women's styles and sizes. All t-shirts are printed using a technology called Direct-to-Garment (or DTG), which lays down soft, durable, full color spectrum prints.


Society6 Art School: we may not help you create better art, but we sure will help you sell more of it.

Society6 'Whiteout' zine contributions must be posted by Friday, July 1

We'll first begin curating the contributions for the zine itself, and later the accompanying collection that will be featured in the Society6 Shop.

Some things to keep in mind when creating your work:

1. Create your piece and post it to your Studio at anytime, but by no later than Friday, July 1st to be considered for the zine and the collection.

You will be notified via email for inclusion in the zine, and separately via email if your piece is added to the collection.

A short-run art publication. Whiteout is a condition of diffuse light in which visibility and contrast are severely reduced and there are no reference points at all, leaving the individual with a distorted orientation.
