Account Setup

With a Redbubble Account, the world is your oyster. You’ll be able to upload and sell your work, receive email updates about promotions and features, and join a community of talented artists and designers.

Best of all, there is no formal vetting process. If you’re over 16 and are looking to become the next big thing (and have responsibly combed over our User Agreement), you can pick yourself a username and sign up for free.

This article will cover:



Account Confirmation

Before you can make your artwork available for sale, you'll need to confirm your email address. Head on over to your Account Details page and click on Confirm Your E-mail Address. You should receive a confirmation email shortly.

If you don’t receive the email within 1-2 minutes, try the following:

  • Make sure your e-mail address has been entered correctly - check spelling, spaces and upper or lower cases. Then send the confirmation again.
  • Check the junk mail folder in your e-mail.
  • Try entering another e-mail address, save your changes, then send the confirmation again.

If all else fails, head on over to our Artist Request form with your Redbubble username and the e-mail address you are trying to confirm. Our Artist Experience team will help you out.

Please keep in mind that only one account can be connected to any given email address. So if you want to open multiple accounts, each must be opened under a different email and username.

Please read about our Upload Limits if you are operating multiple accounts.

Payment Options

To complete your account set up, make sure you choose a payment option that works for you and is available in your country. You'll also need to pick a currency (which cannot be changed once selected) and choose from our tax options. When you’re happy with your choices, hit Save Changes at the bottom of the page.

Your Avatar

Now it’s time to add some personality to your profile! Your avatar will help people recognize you across Redbubble. We suggest using an image, photo or other graphic icon that represents you.

We recommend using an image that's 100x100 pixels for best results - otherwise, our bots will do the resizing and cropping for you.

Your Cover Photo

Cover photos are a great opportunity to make a lasting first impression and tell a story that reflects your individual style. Your cover image could feature an individual artwork, a collage of works, or even a snazzy shot of your studio.

Cover photos must be 2400 px wide by 600 px high and in JPEG or PNG format.

You can add a cover image straight from your profile. To remove it, click the ‘Edit’ link. (Keep in mind this can only be done from the desktop version of the site.)

Be sure to check your profile on mobile too, for fans viewing on their cell phones.

Here is an example of the cover photo in action from resident artist Nyki Way.
