So I want to start selling some of my digital artwork, but in the final print version, is the DA watermark removed? I don't want to sell my artwork to people with the watermark on

final is without watermark. printing is done from your source file 
Ahhh okay, thank you very much!

I doubt people would be interested in what I put up for prints. Never had luck selling my art.

Do you have to pay to sell prints?
MichiLauke's avatar
No! dA take a certain part of money of every picture you have sold...
MichiLauke's avatar
You're welcome! :heart:
I chose other and mine is because I am new and don know how to sell art.
Linkdreams's avatar
I don't really know how. I've never tried really. What if I want a separate account for business and pleasure?
MichiLauke's avatar
Why not? Good idea!

Try Redbubble or Society6.

New Here...
So, DA keeps 80% of the base price of any artwork?
And, let's say that, I put something to sell, and one person buys it... can any other person buy the same piece? And still I'll get 20% of my base price?
MichiLauke's avatar
Please sent your question to help desk of dA to get the right answers. 80% for dA seemed to be too much for me. You are the owner of this pic . for ever! You just can give the using or print rights to anyone who is interested for a payment you have to fix in a contract. Read the contract you have made with dA. If you care about this you have to check it with dA. For my side I trust the print department of dA to handle payments in the right way. I have no chance to control it later if I agree for prints!

Thanks for the reply and excuse my late reply.
Yes, I've read the dA FAQ's and I can't decide wether or not this will be a good idea.
dA offers free services, and i'm grateful with this site just for that.
But paying to get more than 20% of my base price of any possible art buyed, it's not as attractive as getting paid for a freelance job.

I'll have to pass with this, and maybe use dA as a self-publishing platform/tool and nothing more.
Escuse me if I bothered with my question/response.

I am just starting but my art is going to need to make profits or I am going to be screwed over this is a new venture for me and this is going to make or break me real quickly so I am watermarking my stuff and the dead pistol (The CO2 Pistol CZ-75 D Compact Dual Tone) is the first art piece I did and I am going to be posting my artwork but I am working on a timeline that isn't my friend. My goal is to get my airsoft bill to be less and then I can post more art to help that part of my life cheaper then I am going to be working on financing my Youtube Channel with the funds this is to start my life and I am grateful for anyone to buy my merchandise cause this is admittedly med-quality at best but soon I will try to do more. until then please help support me.
