Okay, I'm starting to get into some more artistic, non-stock oriented photography including glamour, fashion and artistic nudes. Can anyone recommend a service something like CafePress that specializes in the production/distribution of prints of that sort.

These are the ones I know:

Imagekind.  It has a free membership with some storage restriction, paid memberships with more storage.  There is a basic price and you add your mark-up price.  Never sold anything.

Artist Rising.  It is a spin-off from (also  If you upload something, it stays in AR until their management decides to upgrade it to (it seems you have to sell it in AR to begin with, only then they will consider moving it to  My few sales there were from images I had in before they created AR.  In their forum a lot of people complain they never got a sale in AR.  I think they also have a free and a paid membership.  They fix the prices, you get a percentage.

Paitings from Photos.  UK-based.  The site is actually dead.  Their latest news is from March or something. I sent them an email months ago and never got a reply.  Also uses mark-up prices.

ArtWanted.  I'm new there, only uploaded one image then I found out they have no watermarks.  You set your image price (digital file), they set print prices and you set a mark-up.

People say good things of Smugmug (requires paid membership to sell).  There was a recent thread not recommending RedBubble due to unreported sales, but other than that people had been reporting good results there (but also no watermarks).

Thanks M,

I've been looking at imagekind and smugmug. They have been the frontrunners so far.

If I remember, you can have whatever you want in your Zazzle shop (for free) but in Cafe press you are limited to one of each product or a few with a free account.
