Welcome to the New Big Cartel Blog

Thanks a bunch for checking out our new blog! If you're curious to know what this is all about, let us fill you in.

The Big Cartel blog has an all-new design and mission: We want to give you access to more resources, inspiration, and updates you care about. Are you an artist or creative person running an online business? Interested in DIY culture, tech, and art? Our blog is written for you. We’ll share behind-the-scenes looks at artist processes, guides to help you get the most out of your work, and of course update you on all the news from Big Cartel. You'll see more artist interviews and essays. We're also going to walk the walk and write about how we work.

Want to see how we approached designing the new blog? Let Big Cartel designer Michael Croxton guide you through his process.

We'll continue to update and improve the blog, taking lessons we learn over time to make it even better for you. So, we're all ears for any thoughts you want to send our way. Tell us what you think by tweeting us @bigcartel.
