Would you buy my phone cases with my art on it?

I've never sold any of my art and I feel like I'm at a point in my life that I have to start doing something with it. I can't keep it hidden much longer. So my question is: is it good enough to sell? Don't say like,"Oh, that's so nice!" when you really want to say, "Eh, good luck buddy but there are a lot of similar designs like that." So yeah! Honest feedback please!!!

I quite like the last one but not feeling the others to be honest.... do you have any other designs?
And you could definitely sell phone cases, Etsy or Ebay or something.

I like the last (2) - now then, on another note., how about some crazy florescent colors, and some abstract designs? I believe this is a product worthy of purchasing; a broader spectrum would be desirable to hit all types of consumers..

Off topic; a friend of mine with one eye started doing art work and design on eye patches; she is rocking the house (especially for children

You might also want to take into account what people are willing to pay for a phone case versus how long it takes you to create one that might be popular, like the bottom design. A design is always art, but it's only art to a consumer if they know your name.

Don't sell on eBay, your designs will get lost in a sea of these, 46 Cent Phone Cases ... With Free Shipping.

Why spend your time and art on trinkets. Go big, Real BIG, on at least 6' x 8' stretched canvas frames.

Get gallery representation, enter competitions, do art fairs, get a www. presence, promote yourself.


You are that good!!

the last one is the best out of those 2 examples.

As you said, there are so many cases already out there.
Why do i want to buy your case with your art, rather than the dollar store one?
Does your case offer more protection, say like an otter box?

The better quality of your case - the more of an advantage you have over others.
You want to protect peoples investment. Not just be another case on the market

I second this. Do the cell cases, but branch out. Believe in yourself, and others will too. There will always be a market for original art. I've been thinking about getting back into photography like I used to be. Thanks for posting this, it's encouraging.

No.
They are nice.
It is just that I don't use cases on my phones.

Your artwork is great! Nice eye appeal and looks like a lot of fine effort. I wouldn't personally buy it, because, well, I prefer solid black on my phone cases.

I do think you could have a nice market for them, as I see plenty of people (mostly teens) who like colorful/decorative phone cases. The thing is, I don't know how much time you spend on each one, but it might be hard to capture the time-value. Meaning, if the same case in blank form would cost $20, you probably couldn't get much over that, unless you marketed them well.

How about having the original art reproduced? I don't know where you could get it done, but if your could do it in small bulk quantities and run off 100 copies, sell them through whatever available channels. Make sure you're "building your brand" in the process, and eventually, your originals would command real premium (though your money would be made on the volume of reproductions.)

Another idea might be to license your designs to be sold by another manufacturer.

In short, what I'm saying is, the artwork is great, and i think people would buy it. You just need to figure out how to monetize and market it. Good luck, whatever your do with it.
