I licensed my first designs in 2013. Instead of it being the start of a brilliant licensing career I ended up getting my products manufactured and selling to shops and craft markets.
The mistake I made back then was sending an email to a company and NEVER contacting them again! Rookie mistake! Although I contacted many different companies back then, the secret is to keep contacting them on a regular basis. At the time, I didn’t know this and I gave up. I was also clueless in general about art licensing – my work wasn’t organised and it would take me forever to send an email, etc.
After restarting my art licensing journey in 2020 with a greater knowledge of the industry, a more organised portfolio and a steel-eyed determination, I have licensed & sold almost 20 designs since then!
It takes a long time to find companies to license to and if you are serious about art licensing, do you know in the beginning you should be spending 30-50% of your time finding companies?
That’s a lot of time that you could be working on your art.
I know what’s it like to be starting out in art licensing and feeling lost. Over the years I have researched hundreds of companies. It took me forever but I am delighted to share this information with you now.
