Pillow Comparison

Hi guys – 2 1/2 years later LOL Sorry about that. I think I’m spread too thin sometimes. My friends and family are always saying – “You should do Patreon or Redit too” or “Why not make this or that craft project too” Then they feel rejected when I try to explain that I just can’t  do more, that I need to focus on fewer things….but anyway…

Today I am going to compare the same art on 3 different pod sites, specifically the throw pillow. I am comparing them as a seller. I have not actually purchased these pillows. I just got curious about the different prices and wondering if it was apples to oranges.

I know these look different. The repeat options and file size requirements are different on each site.PillowComparison

We will compare price on the square throw pillow, just to keep it somewhat consistent. Since Society6 does NOT offer an option without the insert, these prices will be with the insert. However, Spoonflower and Redbubble offer the pillow covers separately as well, which seems to me, might be cheaper shipping.

Well – that makes everything as clear as mud!

I guess I like some aspects of each site better and some aspects worse. The fabric selection at Spoonflower is awesome. Since they sell fabric that makes sense. If I were doing up my living room, I might like my pillows to be velvet or sateen!

I dislike the fact that you can not just buy a cover at Society6 – Good Lord! How much will that floor pillow cost to ship?? If it’s not heavy – is it a good floor pillow? However, S6 is the only one offering a round floor pillow and I like that shape. I also like the fact that they have outdoor pillows.

Redbubble has more sizes and the uploading of art is so much easier – but that’s not important to a customer is it?

So there it is.

See ya in another few years … or days, who knows?

 

 

 

About sharonpassmore

Hi. I am an artist living in Greenville, South Carolina. I am the Art moderator at Eratosphere, a forum of Ablemuse Review. I play with all sorts of art-forms, including digital design and fabric design, but nearest to my heart, at the moment, is collage. I like it best if the collage materials are not recognized from a distance and reveal themselves at close up, the way a painting can look realistic from a distance but on closer inspection, the freedom of brushstrokes becomes apparent. My materials are my brushstrokes. ​ I use anything I find in my collage that suits the purpose, beads, broken jewelry, wallpaper scraps etc... I always try to incorporate recycled packaging too. This is important to me, partly because of the environment, and partly because I get a little thrill out of recognizing the value of materials most people would discard as trash. Think of this next time you peel that wonderful foil seal off a new can of coffee. ​ I am inspired by many kinds of traditional arts and crafts. The cultural history of the world is just loaded with fabulous treasure, isn't it? I view the world of art and art history as a giant buffet and I want to sample a taste of everything. "Mmmmm that Wabi Sabi looks delicious! Gimme a little of that Horror Vacui! Check out those fantastic Molas!" I completely reject the idea that one artform is superior to another due to what is in fashion at the moment. Art is timeless. ​ If there's something I don't like too much, I try to keep in mind that I probably don't understand it, and that's a signal to me that I have something more to learn. There is always something more to learn. Thanks for visitng <3 Sharon Passmore
