Awesome...but people don't buy stuff so I don't get mula :(

But I still love it, especially now they introduced the new stuff...

I've debated about getting a print account myself, but considering the mere handful of stuff I've sold at Ellen Million Graphics, I don't think it would really work for me. I'm not good/known enough for it. The nice thing about it, though, is that people who can't pay via personal check or money order can buy prints here.

I think you'd sell lots of stuff...though there's still the profit margin to think about. :shrug:

In my oppinion...it all depends on the artist and their popularity. I mean the people who are more popular or "well known" in the DA community are obviously going to get more advertisement and such, so they have a better chance of getting good use out of a prints account. But if you don't get that kind of advertisement (even regardless of your talent) it may be a waste of money.

I mostly use it to get prints of my own things to sell other places, better profit (did I spell that right? oO; ). But I do buy other peoples works too when I have the extra cash :) (not that you need a print account to do that :O_o: )

Nice - but I'd use it for myself ^^;

Unless you know someone really well, you can't exactly be sure on what print to buy for them as a gift ^^;

Like others have said, if you're popular then a prints acount is nice, but if you're not well known, then it's crap. I have a prints account but I never
use it because I know no one would buy my stuff. You're well known and lots of people like your work a whole lot. You'd probably do well with a
prints account. Not to mention that they only take 50% of your profit. Other places I've heard of take 70 - 80%. It's conveniant to have someone else do your printing and selling for you too.

I think I'm not informed enough about print accounts to really make a decision. I'm not popular enough/good enough to even begin to consider it, but I think that since you're popular enough, you could make a pretty good profit off of it. It all depends on how much DA takes, I suppose, and whether you think it's worth it.

A print account is useless to someone like me, but I like buying prints from other artists through the site. The prints I've gotten have all been decent quality, and it was very convenient to be able to buy from a variety of different artists all in the same transaction, and ship them together. I also like that you can choose different sizes, since sometimes I want a print of something, but not a really big one. :)

I use it for myself, schnah. They print on this beautiful photo paper stuff so the quality is certainly not something easily come upon. Makes my crappy art look really badass, too! Fwahahahah!
