Hi guys,
I was wondering if any of you have cards there and what has been your experience. Are sales comparable to microstock or zazzle?
I have some artwork on zazzle, and I kinda like the way there's always sales there.

I have sales on both, more in Zazzle. But then I don't have a huge collection of BCs in either one.

A positive side of BCs is that buyers come for more, if they like the first purchase.

Be warned...your files need to be in CMYK and not RGB, which requires the full suite of Photoshop.  I use Elements and am unable to create files using CMYK, which I only learned after registering with ABC.

Hey guys, thanks for replying...
I like the idea of buyers coming for more....
I have a copy of Photoshop CS3 and Adobe illustrator CS6. I got an email through my personal illustration website, from them. So I think I'll probably join and see how it goes.

The free program FastStone Photo Resizer will convert your files to CMYK. I use it all the time to prepare files for ABC.

I like this site, I don't make a big deal of money, but then again I don't have allot of cards up there either.  the best part is you get paid went you sell a card.  they sent you the money via paypal like 2 days after card is sold.  :)

I realise this is a 5-year old thread but I've been recently approached by them to upload my images and would appreciate if anybody has any recent experience working with them.

Thanks in advance.

In my opinion, I don't like how they do things. I got contacted a few years ago too. The only way to see what they are all about and their message board is that I had to sign up. Then instead of having the freedom to put in your own personal info and upload your cards and enter info, they wanna do all of that for you.
So I had second thoughts and went on my way. They seemed not pleased with that and were even a bit intrusive.
So nope from me.

Thanks for your inputs.

To be honest, I just can't be bothered with yet another agency at this stage. Most have been either disappointing or marginally worthwhile. I can put in the next 10 hours to upload 4,000 images and perhaps my return in 6 months will be $50 if I'm lucky...that's how low my expectations have become with new agencies, unless one can prove otherwise.

Must be the low light that's also getting me down!
