Recently Society6 had a free worldwide shipping offer, so i thought i would take advantage of that and order some things from my page to see the quality (that and i really liked the colours in this one)
For those of you who don’t know Society6, its a website where artists and designers can upload images of their work and they can be turned into different types of merchandise such as mugs, bags, t shirts, and phone cases. All the hard work of printing these items is done by the company in the USA, and then shipped to the desired address from the order. All the artist has to do is create the artwork and advertise it. Simple!!
Anyway, i ordered items from all the same print, Ripples, from my page. And i think they turned out looking rather good, if i do say so myself!! The took around 2 to 3 weeks to arrive since being dispatched, which is okay since they are coming from America.
The first thing is a tote bag.
Now these come in 3 different sizes – 13″x13″, 16″x16″, and 18″x18″. I got the 13″x13″ one since I’m trying to carry less stuff into college … For a size comparison i put my sketchbook for my project on top of the bag. The sketchbook is perfectly A4 size.
The next thing is a cushion cover.
I love the way this looks! these also come in 3 different sizes – 16″x16″, 18″x18″, or 20″x20″. These also come with the option to buy the cushion inner or filler directly from Society6, but i just had an IKEA filler that fit perfectly in this (which is the 16″x16″ one). All the fabric merchandise is made with the same thick material, almost canvas like. Its not rough but it feels very high quality for these items.
The last one i ordered was a laptop skin.
This thing is possibly the worst thing to try and photograph since its so glossy and slick, but as result of that it gives it a nice finish. My laptop is a 13″ Macbook Pro and it covers it pretty much perfectly. I think its made from vinyl but i could be wrong.
Overall I’m very happy with these items, although if you live outside the USA i recommend waiting until theres a free shipping offer on the website since it can be a bit expensive once you’ve added on postage.
