Summer is in Full Swing!

Summer is heating up and it’s time for bright and colorful art — we’re already starting to see a flood of strong designs being uploaded. Customers are thinking about decorating for sunny weather, beach days and vacays so keep all that in mind when uploading new designs and deciding which products to enable or promote.

Design Recommendations for Summer Trends & Sales

Halfway through the year is the perfect time to take a good look at some of the most popular designs and trending themes. We caught up with world traveler and creative design star Cat Coquillette for our Trends With Benefits feature: How To Capitalize On Popular Styles. Cat digs in and shares the goods on how she implements trends into her work and then merchandises that into products for her S6 store.

Product Recommendations for July

Here’s what shoppers are looking for at the start of summer:

    • Bright, colorful home decor for bedrooms and common areas
    • Gear for summer outings and trips: beach towels, tote bags, backpacks, duffle bags, and carry-all pouches
    • Accessories for hosting outdoor parties: coasters, serving trays, and cutting boards
    • Art prints are always a top seller, no matter what season


New Products: Coasters, Serving Trays, Cutting Boards, Wall Hangings and Can Coolers are here!

We’re SO stoked to add these new products to your shops – just in time for everyone who’s throwing Pinterest-worthy backyard bashes. None of these products will be seeded from existing assets, so if you’d like them available in your shop, you’ll have to work some Artist Studio magic!
