APPLY to be a Designer
Thank you for your interest in selling your creations in our store. Although we are not actively seeking new designers we are always willing to look at seasoned designers who offer creations with a unique design style that does not compete with our other designers and most importantly will spark the interest of our buying customers. So, it really depends upon what type of designs you have to offer and if we feel that our customers would purchase them. We look for designers who create high quality designs, who are committed to designing by creating and advertising on a regular basis.
We require the following:
-That you add at least 3 CU products a month and 1 of those products must be exclusive to our store only.
-That you never sell your products cheaper somewhere else than you have them priced here. If you sell in other stores that allow products to be sold under $1.50 you would have to have to option to opt out.
-That you commit to making CUdigitals.com your main CU store for all your commercial use products. You may sell your commercial use products at no more than 2 other stores that offer both commercial use and personal use items but NO other stores that only provide commercial use products like we do.
-That you always product a link to your store and add it FIRST whenever posting your CU products previews to your blog, Facebook, Pinterest, personal newsletters in forums or other social media avenues.
*Please note that we do not accept designers who own or admin for other scrap stores that have commercial use items with multiple designers.
To apply at our store please provide us with the following to: getcreative (at) cudigitals.com or to owner (at) cudigitals.com:

We look for designers who are actively designing and are committed to advertising your products in our store. If you want to join our store you must agree to make selling your commercial use products with us a top priority. It is fine if you sell in a few other stores however, we do not want to be just another store where your products can be found.
Is this something you are willing to commit to?
If so then please create one or two zip files that contain your BEST products and zip them up EXACTLY how you would be uploading to our store. Keeping that in mind that we do not allow any references or url links to any outside website's on designer product previews, within the product description, within your TOU or in the product zip files. We need to check the quality of your work and see how you name and package your products.
We look forward to seeing what you have to offer our customers!
Thank you for your application!
