Inspiration for artists & news from Big Cartel

Big Cartel Turns 6

Six years ago today, my friend Eric and I launched a little project we’d been working on in our spare time that was supposed to help artists sell stuff online.

There were a million unknowns, like “will people actually use this?” But we didn’t really care. We had few expectations for where this project would lead us, we were just having fun working on something we were passionate about.

Since then we’ve been able to quit our day jobs, hire some of the most talented people I know, and work every day for artists like ourselves who are dedicating their time and energy to something they love doing. Whether you’re a designer, crafter, band, or photographer - thank you for sharing your passions with us and helping us reach another birthday.
