Artist FAQ

What type of designs can I post?

We specialize in paper projects such as cards, toys, pop-up cards, tools or other novelty paper items which people can download to print and make themselves… so you don’t need to worry about inventory or shipping. Once you post a design, you’re done! All your sales and payments to your Paypal account happen automatically.

Read our terms and conditions for more details.

How can I be featured?

Post at least four awesome designs at a good price! You could be featured on the front page of the website or in newsletters sent to over 10,000 active paper craft fans.

How can I protect my work from theft?

When you put your work “out there” there is always the risk that someone will copy it. But risks can be mitigated. This website uses a shopping cart designed specifically for digital downloads, with very secure links to access the files. Of course someone could also buy a template and then copy it — so when you prepare your files be sure to include your copyright information and export the template as a secure, password-protected PDF, so they can’t be modified.

Do I keep the rights to my work?

Yes, absolutely! You keep the copyright to all your designs and any promotional images or text you post. You have complete control over posting, pricing — and removing — your designs. You are also free to sell your designs on any other marketplace. That said, Make Anything Pop Up reserves the right to use any content you post in newsletters, ads, social media platforms, etc for the purpose of promoting your work and (in other words we want to use your photos to show the world how great you are!)
