We are excited to have you join the IndieMe Marketplace. Be sure to view our Artist Qualifications here and select your showcase (we can always change your showcase at a later date). Does your product line cross over to another showcase? No worries you can select your primary showcase along with a secondary showcase. This will ensure that your full line gets the exposure it needs. Primary showcase selection is included in your yearly fee, secondary showcase selection is an additional $10 per month.

Are you an emerging artist with less than 10 wholesale accounts and no to limited wholesale trade show experience? We can help you succeed! Our staff is knowledgeable in all aspects of the wholesale world. We offer mentoring and guidance on a one-to-one basis. In addition we require that each emerging artist who is juried into the marketplace commit to a quarterly marketing plan, which includes an ad in our quarterly Buyer's Guide and 6 featured online ads. This 3 month advertising commitment ensures that you are set up to get in front of a range of buyers and offers the exposure your new wholesale business will need.
Be prepared with the following information:
- Year you started your company
- How many wholesale accounts you currently have
- What is your minimum order and reorder amount
- Describe your product line and how it's made
- Are there any imported components
- Who makes your final product, do you make it from beginning to end or do you have work done outside of your studio
- If you retail - a list of the sites you retail on
- Your artist statement
- 12 images of your products including one bio pic of you (for image requirements click here)
Why do we ask for all of this information? It helps our jury members understand you and your product line so they can jury you in the best possible manner.
