Sell your art online...

without lifting a finger*

This page is an overview of how Piki Kiwi works, and explains what you’ll need to do and what is taken care of for you.

Each new idea will be explained in more detail in an accompanying guide, but if you have more questions, please get in touch.

Once you feel like you’ve understood everything, our Get Started guide is where to head to next.

* There is a little finger lifting to get started.


Do it yourself   LET US HANDLE IT

First things first...

A quick overview
of how this works.

Piki Kiwi stores are made up of two parts. The place where you upload your work for sale and the place where your customers will buy your work from.

The place where you upload your work is called Creative Hub and while your customers might never know it, the place where they are buying from is called Shopify.

In addition to this, it is important to understand who ThePrintSpace are and what Piki Kiwi actually does.

Who's who?

Piki Kiwi

Piki Kiwi is a service designed to help you setup your store, and can handle every aspect of starting your online business. It was developed by Built with Understanding, a company who specialise in design, music and retail sites, and is a partnership with ThePrintSpace.

ThePrintSpace

ThePrintSpace is one of the UK’s leading print studios and is responsible for the printing and delivering of your work once it is sold. Your customers do not need to be aware of what ThePrintSpace does, but it may help to re-assure them that their purchase is being handled by one of the UK’s leading print studios.

Creative Hub

Creative Hub is where you will upload your work and set your prices. It is run by ThePrintSpace and is regularly used by thousands of customers. It has lots of different functions, but we only need to use a couple of them to get started.

Shopify

Shopify is a platform that allows hundreds of thousands of people to run online stores. With Shopify you don’t need to worry about online security, hosting or maintenance; everything is included in the price. When your customers visit your store, they will be using Shopify, even if they don’t know it.

How it works

1 Upload your work

You upload your work to Creative Hub, and set the price for each item. Creative Hub will automatically suggest the best size for your file and allows your to select a paper stock.

2 Add your work to your store

Once setup, your work is automatically sent to your Shopify store by Creative Hub. You can add more information about it, group it with similar images and set it to available for purchase.

3 Someone buys your work

When a customer buys your work, you get the money straight away and the order is automatically sent to ThePrintSpace.

4 The order is printed

When ThePrintSpace receives the order they will bill your account for printing and shipping. In most cases orders are printed within 24 hours, usually on the same day as purchase.

5 The order is shipped

After the order is printed, it is professionally packed and dispatched. You’ll receive a tracking number to give to your customer so they know exactly when it will arrive.

6 The order is delivered

Your customer receives their order and hopefully tells everyone how much they love your work and your excellent store.

Great! Let's begin

It's time to make your first decision

Do you want Piki Kiwi to set everything up for you or do you want to do it yourself?

All the information you will need to setup your store is contained in our Get started guide, but we can also do all of this for you (see below). Prices start from £99, and there are lots of extras available.

If you choose to do this yourself, you’ll want to give yourself a couple of hours for the process, and you’ll need to sign up to a couple of different services. At the very least you are going to need an email address and some high quality digital files for your work.

If you get stuck at any point, there’s more information in our Guides section
