Today we take a look at two new online companies that give artists a new outlet for finding buyers. The Knack is a new online wedding registry site that aims to give couples the options to create truly unique and personal wedding registries. The founders have a strong desire to support local businesses and artists. As an artist you submit your work and engaged couples who are looking to have a unique wedding registry experience can put your piece on their registry, the wedding guests can go online to make their purchases. Couples can look outside the big chain and box stores and request a painting, sculpture for their new home together and much more. Watch the video here to see how you can submit your work for the website. You can check out their facebook page by clicking on the couple.
The second company is also a match maker of sorts but not with newlyweds. Custom Made matches artists with people who are looking to commission special projects. The works range from jewelry, custom furniture, to a custom leather portfolio and more.
If you want to become a “Maker” you will sign up online, and you will then get a custom gallery on their website. The fee for this service is $19 a month.
