Etsy allows sellers to build responsible relationships with production partners who can assist sellers with making the items they’ve designed.

For instance, maybe you don’t have the technical ability or equipment necessary to make your items. Or maybe your shop is taking off and you need help keeping up with demand.

Why Etsy is great.

Etsy is a powerful online selling platform for handmade businesses. What’s amazing about Etsy is the buying community is as large as the selling community which means new businesses have just as much a chance to be found and grow as established businesses do. Of course, setting up an Etsy store still takes a lot of time, learning, adjusting, testing, perseverance and a little bit of luck. But the Etsy community is a very helpful and supportive group of people and makes the ups and downs of starting a business go more smoothly.

Ways to Use Art of Where.

If you are already the proud owner of a busy Etsy business, we encourage you to try Art of Where to increase your range of products. We make everything from cell phone cases, to fully printed garments, to fine art prints. If you are an art print only business why not try translating your artwork on a scarf or wood print? If you already offer some killer solid colour clothing, try our full printed (and beautifully soft) tank tops. You never need to commit to inventory and while you test a new product, simply create listings using our realistic 360 Design Labs.

Should I drop ship or wholesale for my Etsy store?

Our prices are designed for reselling and our drop ship and order fulfillment services are tailored to one-at-a-time ordering. Artists who drop ship with Art of Where prefer to order on demand which means once they sell a product on their Etsy store, they in turn order with Art of Where so we can produce and ship directly to their end customer. This prevents any excess inventory (only order once you have collected your payment from your customer), and allows you more time to build your store and talk to your customers while we do the production and shipping.

For artists with a solid idea of their sales volume and fan base, we offer wholesale pricing on all of our products (except fabric) at a quantity of only 6 pieces. Since our wholesale minimums are so low, our wholesale structure is perfect for mid to large size businesses. Benefits to wholesaling include access to our lowest pricing per piece, as well as a lower cost of shipping per piece. Artists who wholesale with us tend to prefer to package and ship their own orders to their end customers in order to have full control over their customers experience. We also work with many artists who are attending trade or craft shows who use our wholesale pricing to stock up for their in-person sales events.

Whether you are drop shipping or wholesaling, Art of Where offers accessibly and easy-to-use custom branding options. These include branded clothing labels, artist (business) cards, and packaging stickers. We firmly believe that building and making your brand recognizable is just as important as the products themselves. This is why we don’t mind taking a step back and standing silently behind our product while making your brand front and center.

What Art of Where does.

Art of Where is a high-quality manufacturer that produces products on-demand printed with your designs and artwork. We are proud to say that all of our products are produced in-house by us. Not a single product is outsourced. Why? So we can control the quality of the items we make.

Producing well-made products and being a company that artists trust with their artwork is our highest priority. Since no artwork that you submit ever leaves our studios, we keep your artwork safe from any unauthorized reproduction which we found has been hugely important to professional Artists. Art of Where understands that when you are an online business, shipping is 50% what you do so we have our shipping down to a science. We ship from both Canada using Canada Post and the USA with USPS to domestic and international customers.We pride ourselves in sourcing great raw ingredients locally whenever possible and maintaining a high level of standards in all areas of our company.

How Art of Where came into being.

Art of Where was started in 2010 by 2 creative minds with very different skills. Joey is the numbers man and visionary with a passion for artwork that ceaselessly drives Art of Where. Kate loves making things and creating custom items that mean more to someone than something off the shelf. We are happy to have the problem of requiring more and more staff to help keep up with demand and production. Product development, maintaining quality, and seeking out new technologies and specialized machines to further expand our product line to keep up emerging technologies and are what we focus on day-to-day.

Where we are in the World.

Art of Where is located in the heart of downtown Montreal. Our huge windows look out onto busy St. Catherine Street where there is always something interesting going on. We love the vibe and energy of our building called the Belgo which is a well known art hub in Montreal. We have an open door policy; feel free to drop by if you are in the area! While we can’t give full tours, we can show you what we do in person.

Our Company and Structure.

As of 2017, we are a team of over 50 people. Since it's pretty much impossible to find someone who has previously worked with the type of machines that we have in our studio, we provide full training on our equipment and employees are encouraged to expand their skill set. Up to 10 people may be involved in the production of 1 product as your order passes from printing and pressing and prep, into sewing, packaging and shipping. Our web team is a growing group of ninja programmers and graphic gurus. Many of our staff members have their own Etsy shops or personal brands (some of which are completely stocked with AOW products), which is why we treat every item we make as if it were our own.

Our Machines and Materials.

Probably our favorite thing about our studio is our machines. We have everything from embroidery machines to specialized sewing machines and top-of-the-line printers including one of the only natural fabric printers in all of Canada. With our equipment, we can print almost any image on natural or synthetic fabrics, and customize any product to different specifications.

Our fabrics and materials are locally sourced whenever possible. Our zippers are manufactured in Montreal and almost all our stretch fabrics are knitted by one of the only textile mills in Canada. Our woven silks are sourced from different suppliers located in both Montreal and the USA. Our natural fabric printer prints with eco-friendly pigment inks that are both safe for children and the environment and our sublimation processes use water based dyes instead of solvents. We are constantly on the lookout for new suppliers that can provide us with the right balance of quality and sustainability for our fabrics and products.

Quality Control is so important.

Our mantra is to always pay attention to the details. We have spent countless hours and long nights dedicated to color profiling and obsessing over how to get the perfect prints. Fabrics have gone through vigorous testing before we add them to our fabric printing lineup or use them for our products. Consistency is important to us. Your product will go through 3 quality checks before it is shipped; one check after printing and pressing, another before it is sent to sewing, and then finally inspected after sewing and all the final threads are trimmed and seams inspected . While there are limitations in what our machines can do which you may read about in our help section, we strive to attain the best prints possible with the technology we have at hand.

Brand Your Etsy Drop Ship Products.

Art of Where offers many different options to customize your drop ship or Etsy orders and make it look like your products are coming straight from you. All clothing items can have your custom label added. Pillows will have the custom label sewn on the outside of the case for your customer to see. Custom labels are currently free of charge on all wholesale orders and only a 1$ to add to drop ship orders.

Further to custom labels, Art of Where also offers artist cards that can be included in any order. An artist card is like a business card and can be used to speak directly to your customer. Tell them about your art, your process, care instructions for the product, and links to your social media.

Drop ship and wholesale orders will not contain an invoice or document detailing what you paid for the drop ship article. Since you as the artist are our customer and not the person that the item is shipping to, you will have access to invoices for orders you placed with us, but the end customer will not see these charges. The only packages that may have value information on the shipping label are international packages that require a customs declaration. This value information will be based on the drop ship price of the item so you can explain it to your customer as a reduced value.

We understand customer service

Creating products and stocking an online stores is one thing. Sustaining and growing your business is another. No business can be successful without great customer service. We know this because at Art of Where we provide customer service to our community of artists who we work with. In turn our artists are helping their buyers who purchase from their stores. Many of the questions your customers will have, we have had over the years. Anything tricky that happens, like a mixup in an order, or questions about print colours, are things that we have dealt with too. We understand unreasonable deadlines and special requests. We can help coach you as you build your business, interact with your customers, and receive reviews. And as your business grows and you become more knowledgeable about on-demand production, you will be able to confidently manage your customer service and refer to us when required. We have put together a guide with helpful suggestions on how to approach your customer service. And we are always only a phone call (no answering machines!) away when you need us.
