Art UK actively generates revenue for participating partner collections through the Art UK Shop. This provides an opportunity for collections to participate in print on demand, image licensing, and to sell their own merchandise through our shared e-commerce platform.
For the period 2020–2021, Art UK will return approaching £100,000 to UK collections. The top-performing collections in the Shop generate significantly more than their partnership fee in revenue – for example, one collection is predicted to achieve sales of more than £11,000 in the financial year 2020-2021. The Shop gives collections a genuine opportunity to generate significant revenue with no capital investment or risk.
You can find out more information on the Shop and commercial help pages for collections.
