Art UK Shop
Art UK knows how vital commercial revenue is to the nation's collections, which is why we launched the Art UK Shop in 2016. A brand new version was launched in 2023.
Open to our Partner Collections, this shared platform provides a marketplace for your own merchandise, and offers brilliant print-on-demand (POD) products.
Over 140 collections sell through the Art UK Shop. The top-performing collections on the Art UK Shop generate c.£15,000 per annum (net) in revenue from print and product sales.
The marketplace format means that the Art UK Shop is a destination e-commerce site for shoppers wishing to buy a unique cultural gift or update their interiors with framed prints and art-infused homewares.
It presents a unique offering: customers may order a print from Manchester Art Gallery, a scarf from Pallant House Gallery and a book from Aberdeen Art Gallery, and pay for these in one transaction through a single shopping basket.
Print-on-demand products are fulfilled by our supplier Heritage Digital, who put sustainability at the heart of their business.
Collections receive a generous share of the revenue from the sale of all print on demand products.
Marketing the Shop
Collections benefit from dedicated marketing support for their products, including seasonal campaigns, social media content and dedicated Art UK Shop customer newsletters.
Additionally, you are supported by Art UK's investment in paid search and paid social media advertising. We encourage our Partner Collections to link to their e-commerce pages from their own website, social media and customer communications.
