    Or any other art or photography community to sell prints? I was thinking about trying one, but I don't know which one to use, or if it will be worth the time. I was considering deviantart, too, and wondering about people's experiences with selling there.

    etsy.com is a new one on me but it looks quite interesting.

    i have a deviantart print account for a couple of years and never sold anything. Having said that, i think i only have about 3 prints available on it.

    i hear alot of people moaning about not selling anything on their deviantart prints account, but if your work is good enough or commercial/saleable enough, and you make sure you get plenty of exposure (you need to actively promote your work), i see no reason why you couldn't make sales.

    I almost missed this! Thanks for replying. I suppose it wouldn't hurt to give it a try. I'll probably sign up for a deviantart print account, since etsy doesn't actually make prints.
