About This Class

Art Licensing or Print on Demand?

Hey, wait…aren’t they the same thing?


In this class I will explain the differences, the similarities and how each (or both) can help you in your quest to monetize your art. I will walk you through the best strategies to enhance your message and grow your audience—and how to employ them to build your income.

The resource guide will contain links to popular POD companies, additional classes to take, and a short quiz on how to determine which method might be right for you.

I’ve licensed my art on hundreds of products over the years and used Print on Demand to enhance those efforts. If fact, my self-published (POD) coloring books led me to a thriving relationship with a traditional publisher. I’m also the author of License to Draw—How to Monetize Your Art through Licensing…and more!, and I coach artists to help them discover the right path for their creative goals.
