SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GearLaunch, the leading E2E commerce platform, today announced the expansion of its on-demand product catalogue to include a suite of offerings targeted at artists, designers and photographers. The new products include various wall art mediums including stretched canvas, foam board and printed glass that will be added to the existing catalogue of apparel, homewares and accessories.
This new line of offerings from GearLaunch gives the maker and creator community immediate and broad access to the continually growing $7 billion wall decor market. GearLaunch’s ever expanding “virtual trade show” offers a range of products that merchants can customize and sell to buyers with the full support of the GearLaunch platform, including pre and post-sales support, billing, shipping logistics and personalized customer support.
“GearLaunch has proven a massive success for internet power sellers, with many moving several million dollars of inventory per year,” said GearLaunch Founder and CEO Thatcher Spring. “Now, GearLaunch is opening its platform to all manner of artists and creators, offering tools, production capacity and backend support that allows them to reach a virtually unlimited audience. We are excited to empower an entirely new group of entrepreneurs with the continuing expansion of our product catalogue.”
Beginning as a limited beta test in late 2017, early artist and photographer-operated wall art accounts proved very successful, generating strong interest from new and current merchants alike. As a result, GearLaunch has invested deeply in the supply chain alongside several manufacturers and is now opening its wall art products to a larger group of merchants. Products are high quality, made in the US, feature short shipping times and are supported by all the GearLaunch features that create a seamless and risk-free experience for buyers.
"In theory, using ecommerce to connect with customers should create a massive selling opportunity for my art. The reality was much different,” said Justin Burr, co-owner of a GearLaunch merchant site catswithhumanhands.com. “The tools I tried in the past consisted of several cobbled together apps and required so much work I had no remaining time to actually create art. GearLaunch puts all necessary tools at my fingertips, making it easier than ever for me to realize every artist’s dream: putting my art in front of the largest possible audience.”
GearLaunch not only offers the most complete and sophisticated E2E commerce platform to date, but also provides a host of business operational support and logistics services such as production, shipping and personalized customer support for buyers.
With a continually growing catalogue of product offerings, GearLaunch’s 2,500 merchants generated more than $115 million in product sales last year. GearLaunch also offers deep integration with Shopify storefronts, allowing any online-centric merchant selling through Shopify to take advantage of GearLaunch’s platform from anywhere on the globe.
