SUBMISSIONS GUIDELINES, TERMS & CONDITIONS
Submissions Guidelines for Products, Patterns, Stories & Artwork
Story Chest Crafts invites you to sell your products, patterns, stories & artwork online! This is a great way for families to connect, create, and play together—as well as an opportunity to make some spending cash!
You will retain 100% ownership of all rights to your creations. Story Chest Crafts makes a small percentage when they sell in order to pay for administrative costs such as operating this website, but you’ll retain all of your creative rights and you can sell your creations anywhere else that you like, forever.
PATTERNS, STORIES & ARTWORK SUBMISSIONS
Please only submit your Patterns, Stories & Artwork via email to: info@StoryChestCrafts.com. Please do not send physical samples. Please send Word Docs, JPG’s or PDF’s and keep file sizes to less than 1 megabyte each.
Contact us for the submissions address.
PLEASE NOTE THAT PHYSICAL SAMPLES CANNOT BE RETURNED, so do not send originals that you need back.
All submissions to Story Chest Crafts are juried and only approved submissions will be posted for sale on the site. We’ll always let you know the status of your submissions within 7 days of receipt. Once approved and posted, Story Chest Crafts reserves the right to actively manage the online posting of your creations and remove or replace them from StoryChestCrafts.com at any time and in its sole discretion.
PATTERNS, STORIES & ARTWORK SALES PRICE & COMMISSIONS
Story Chest Crafts will consult with you to determine the final sales price of approved submissions. Then, when your creations sell, Story Chest Crafts will transfer 2/3 of the sales value to you on a monthly basis via PayPal, or credit card if you prefer. Story Chest Crafts will retain 1/3 commission on each sale. (This may be higher than some larger sites, and lower than many smaller sites. Please remember that large sites like eBay, Etsy, and Ravelry have millions of users so they have smaller commissions multiplied by a very large number of users. Sites with fewer users have to share the costs among fewer of us, so the percentage will be higher.)
PRODUCT SALES PRICE & COMMISSIONS

We will then post approved products for sale on our website and will notify you via email when there is a sale. You will then ship the product to the customer. Story Chest Crafts will transfer 2/3 of the sales value to you on a monthly basis via PayPal, or credit card if you prefer. Story Chest Crafts will retain 1/3 commission on each sale.
