Thank you for being a part of the Fraction Shop! We are thrilled to feature your work!
Following the success of the annual Fraction Holiday Print Sale, we have decided to open an online shop year-round. The Fraction Shop is found here (http://shop.fractionmagazine.com/) and features a curated selection of photographs, books, and zines from Fraction artists as well as others.
If you are interested in participating, this is how it will work -
You will email David/Bree the image(s) / item(s) you’d like to put up for sale (max 3). You select the size, price and edition. You can put up a photograph that is part of one of your regular editions, or you can create a smaller, special edition for this platform. Totally up to you. After eight years of the Fraction Holiday Print Sale, we recommend 8.5x11 prints for $100. This has worked very well in the past, but again, the choice is yours. All items (photographs, books and zines) need to be signed. Please sign the print on the back with your name, the edition number, the title and FRACTION EDITION.
Keep in mind this is a curated shop so all items might not be accepted.
The prints, books and zines will be listed for sale on the Fraction shop. I will regularly send out email blasts to my list of subscribers and also use social media to promote the shop, and your images may be used for these marketing purposes.
When an item is purchased from the Fraction shop, I will send you the name, address, and email of the buyer. You must ship the print or book within 5 calendar days of notification. Once the order is shipped, you will email the buyer and Fraction notice of shipment and include a tracking number (required). I will then send you your commission plus the shipping fee. Keep in mind, paypal might keep 3.5% of the total.
Paypal is required and I cannot pay you without a tracking number.
Fraction will be paid directly from the buyer, and then Fraction will pay you via Paypal, once you provide a tracking number for the shipped print. The commission structure is as follows:
Fraction will earn a 40% commission on all photographs, 30% on all books, and 20% on all zines.
Shipping will be listed as $10 for photographs and $5 for zines and books and paid to you in addition to your commission. This should be enough to cover the cost of postage (USPS priority mail) and the photo mailers (padded envelopes). All photographs must be properly packed. If you require a higher shipping fee to cover expenses (not make a profit) please let me know.
Padded envelopes and cardboard support are required.
