MAKEBOOMBOXES Artist Agreement
Version Aug 18, 2022
Art Gallery Overview:
MAKEBOOMBOXES is a community creativity platform for making artistic, brilliant, contemporary bluetooth speakers. We make radios into instruments of change and objects of enchantment.
MAKEBOOMBOXES devices let you put an art show on a radio. By being a musical canvas for artists, these boxes fill sensation to the levels of song.
MAKEBOOMBOXES Online Art Gallery is a marketplace where artists, designers, creators, etc. can sell boombox-compatible add-on art products to people who care about music and art.
Artistic scope. Add-on art products uniquely enhance and compliment the visual surfaces of MAKEBOOMBOXES such as their: modular Art Face, grille covers, branding plate, soundboard, backboard and side walls, handle and guitar straps, etc.
Platform benefits. When you make art for sale in the MAKEBOOMBOXES Online Gallery, you get onboard with a new vehicle to sell your artworks, you get hip new formats to present your artwork, new audiences and ways to inspire, new and useful applications for your creativity, and new visual experiences to explore with other artists.
Artistic Collaboration. The Artist is a good faith participant in the MAKEBOOMBOXES Art Gallery and Community for the purpose of both selling their artwork in the form of MAKEBOOMBOXES-compatable products, and also for the purpose of contributing to the overall success of the MAKEBOOMBOXES community. Artistic collaboration and cooperation and mutual respect is an integral part of the ethos here.
How does the Art Gallery work for Artists?
What types of products? There are three different types of physical products that Artists can sell in the Online Gallery: 1. One-of-a-kind art objects, 2. Reproductions of original art/design, 3. Design Templates for novel add-on products of an artistic nature
What are the financials? The Online Gallery works similarly to marketplaces such as Etsy, etc. You set the asking and discounted pricing, and you get a percentage of the proceeds.
- One-of-a-kind: When MAKEBOOMBOXES sells your one-of-a-kind products, the net proceeds are shared between the artist and MAKEBOOMBOXES at a 50%-50% split percentage (after subtracting cost of mounting hardware, card processing fees and cost of supplied blank parts). The first 10 artists who become sellers get an early adopters incentive on the first 5 of their one-of-a-kind art-faces sold: a 90% of net sale payout and blank parts at no cost.
- Reproductions: When MAKEBOOMBOXES sells your reproductions products, you get 50% of the net proceeds after subtracting the production/manufacturing costs, and card processing fees. The first 10 artists who become sellers get an early adopters incentive on the first 5 of their reproductions art-faces sold: a 60% of net sale payout.
- Design Templates are licensed by MAKEBOOMBOXES under case-by-case agreement
How do the art products get delivered to the purchaser? Depending on the kinds of product(s) you are adding to the Online Gallery, they will be delivered via:
- Upload-for-print: Your reproductions or templates are submitted digitally and MAKEBOOMBOXES will either mass-produce or print on demand. MAKEBOOMBOXES ships to the purchaser (see the Reproductions Product Details below)
- Consignment: your originals are handed off to MAKEBOOMBOXES for us to store and then ship when they are sold (see the Consignment Products Details below)
- Artist-Delivered: you will warehouse your own art products and ship to the purchaser when sold (see the details for artist-delivered below)

The Artist is in no other way limited from selling their other non-MAKEBOOMBOXES-compatible artworks in whatever channels or venues or forms of reproduction they choose.
