Where do I go to open a shop?

You can open your very own shop via the OPEN SHOP button, or here:
https://www.curioos.com/open-shop

Once you open your shop, you’ll have complete access to our Seller’s Guide which explains everything you’ll ever need to know about managing a shop on Curioos. Enjoy!

What makes Curioos different than other POD sites?

When you open a shop on Curioos, you become part of a creative movement to bring quality, artist-designed products to a new generation of customers, including design lovers and fashion addicts.

Unlike other POD sites, our high-end audience and unique product line allows you to sell art prints in large formats and at higher prices. Higher sales prices mean greater royalties per sale for you, especially for exclusive and limited editions.

Just like our wall art products, our fashion line reflects the same standards of quality and innovation: from quality apparel, to upcoming fashion accessories and a unique footwear line.

Once you open your Art Shop, you’ll have full access to our innovative Artwork Manager where you’ll upload hi-res files quickly and easily to our secure servers, customize your sales, and share your new products with your fans via your very own Sharing Center.

How do I make my artworks for sale?

When you open your shop, you’ll be able to make your artworks for sale right away using the Artwork Manager. The Artwork Manager is an innovative tool that’ll allow you to upload your hi-res files to our secure server, generate and publish your wall art products to your shop quickly and easily.

I’ve seen the Disk and Die-Cut Prints. Will I be able to sell these unique products in my shop?

Yes! Once you open your Art Shop you’ll have instant access to Disk Print sales and the Die-Cut Submission Program.

How are my royalties determined?

When you make a product for sale you’ll decide how to sell it by selecting an Edition Option: Limited Edition Exclusive, Open Edition Exclusive or Open Edition Non-Exclusive. Your percentage earned from each sale is determined by the Edition Option you select, with higher percentages offered for exclusive sales.

Unlike other POD sites, our high-end audience and quality product line allow you to sell art prints in large formats and at higher prices. Higher sales prices mean greater royalties per sale for you, especially for exclusive and limited editions. Here is the breakdown of our products, public prices, your royalties earned per sale, and the average price per sale:

*Artist earnings are calculated from the sale of prints only. Framing options (fine art frames, fine art blocks, floater frames) are therefore excluded from the royalty calculations above.

Can you tell me more about the edition options I can select when I make my products for sale?

Limited Edition - Exclusive: This option allows you to sell a limited number of copies of a product. In regards to wall art, it allows you to sell a limited number of copies of each format size available. What’s best? Limited Edition products sell at a higher price to ensure greater revenue for the artist.

Open Edition - Exclusive: This option allows you to sell an unlimited number of copies of a product exclusively on Curioos. What’s best? You earn a higher percentage than Non-Exclusive sales with no maximum production restrictions.

Open Edition - Non-Exclusive: This option allows you to sell an unlimited number of copies of a product on Curioos, and allows you to sell the same artwork on a similar product elsewhere.

Note that our customers value the exclusivity and rarity of the products they buy. Plus, when you sell limited editions you have the possibility to increase the price of the very last prints to be sold in the series, so you can earn even more from your sales.

When I sell an artwork, can I select different edition options for each product?

Yes, you’re free to select an edition option for each product you add to your shop. For example, you can sell the same artwork in Open Non-Exclusive Editions on Canvas Prints and in Limited Editions on All Over Print T-Shirts.

If I sell products on Curioos, will I remain the owner of my artwork?

Yes, no matter how you choose to sell your products you’ll remain the owner of your artwork. Even if you choose to sell your artwork in exclusive editions on Curioos products, you’ll still hold the right to sell the same artwork on other products on other websites.

How do I get paid? How often?

Your royalties are transferred to your Paypal account every month, with absolutely no fees to pay on your end. If you live in a country where PayPal isn’t available, you’ll be able to contact us for an alternative solution.

Does Curioos offer any tools to help me promote my products?

Yes, once you open your shop you’ll have your very own Sharing Center. From here you’ll share your products via multiple social channels just seconds after they go on sale or whenever you’d like!

How? The Sharing Center generates realistic mockups (product close-ups & in situs) and custom links tailored for Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Email.... Sharing your products is as easy as a couple clicks of a mouse!

Following the creation of your shop, you’ll also be added to our Custom Ads newsletter. You’ll then begin receiving custom visuals that you can use to promote your products during our sitewide promotions and collection features.

Can you tell me more about the products I can sell?

We use only the highest quality materials and the best printing technology available. Each art product is numbered, stamped and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

What’s the difference between Limited, Exclusive and Numbered editions?

Our artists choose how they’d like to sell their artwork on each product by selecting an edition option. No matter the edition, all art prints are numbered and signed and come with a certificate of authenticity.

Limited Edition: This mean that the artist has chosen to sell the product exclusively on Curioos and nowhere else. Only a limited number of products will be sold. Once the designated number sells out, the sale remains closed forever to protect the value and rarity of the Limited Edition sale to you, the art collector.

Exclusive Edition: This mean that the artist has chosen to sell the product exclusively on Curioos and nowhere else. Unlike Limited Editions, there is no limit to the number of products sold.

Numbered Edition: This mean that the artist has chosen to sell the product non-exclusively on Curioos, with no limit to the number of products sold.

How do artists sign their art prints?

Curioos represents artists from 90+ countries around the world, so to sign their artworks we ask them send us a digital copy of their real signature to print on every product sold. It’s the best way for artists to sign their works without traveling around the globe to do so!

Where are your products produced?

Our Paper, Canvas, and Aluminum prints are currently produced in both the USA and Europe. For the moment, Acrylic Glass, Disk and Die-Cut prints and apparel items are produced only in the USA.

Why a certificate of authenticity?

As another measure of certifying authenticity, every product we sell comes with a signed and numbered certificate, which can be downloaded directly from the order confirmation email. Each certificate contains a copy of the artist’s signature, an identification number, and the edition number (copy number).

I’d like to order an art print but in a size larger than the largest for sale. Is this possible?

All of the available format sizes are listed with each artwork. We produce prints up to the largest format size possible depending on the size of our artists’ HD files.

I love an artwork so much that I’d like to purchase the HD file. Can I?

Product Care

All Curioos art products are carefully crafted to last. But properly taking care of yours will ensure its good looks for years to come. Below are specific care instructions for all of our products.

Wall Art

With proper care your wall art will stay in mint condition for as long as you’re around to see it.

Papers Prints

  • To prevent fading or color distortion, it’s best to hang your paper print in a cool, dry space and out of direct sunlight.
  • Remove dust by using either compressed air or by brushing lightly with a soft, lint-free, microfiber cloth. Never use water or cleaning products of any kind to clean your paper print, as they will cause the inks to fade / run.
  • Framing is always a good option to protect paper paper prints from dust, water damage, and tears.
  • Always handle your paper paper print by its edges. Hold each side equally to avoid bends and dimples.
  • Never stack anything on top of your paper print.

Canvas Prints

  • To prevent fading or color distortion, it’s best to hang your canvas print in a cool, dry space and out of direct sunlight.
  • Remove dust gently with a dry, soft, lint-free, microfiber cloth.
  • Never use water or cleaning products of any kind to clean your canvas print, as they will distort and/or fade the color of the inks.

Aluminum Prints, Disks, Die-Cuts

  • Remove dust and fingerprints gently using with a dry, soft, microfiber cloth. A microfiber cloth dampened with water only may be used on occasion.
  • Never use cleaning products of any kind to clean your aluminum print.
  • Be mindful when moving your aluminum print, as it may dent or bend if dropped or hit against a hard object.
  • Hang at eye-level and out of direct light or spotlights to prevent glare.

  • Remove dust and fingerprints gently using with a dry, soft, microfiber cloth. A microfiber cloth dampened with water only may be used on occasion.
