We’re excited to announce that starting today, we have raised our artist payout percentage! Thank you to everyone who has spoken to us over the past few months – either on social media, via email, or by responding to surveys; it’s thanks to your feedback we were able to prioritize this change to artist compensation.
Essentially, we’ve swapped the percentage of sales that goes to artists vs carbon credits. The artist now receives a full 50% of every purchase.
We’re also launching a new calculator soon, so you can experiment with prices and the resulting artist payout. You’ll be able to see the precise breakdown of where payments are going.

What do I need to do?
For most artists, the answer is: nothing!
In order to allow us to purchase a full carbon credit to sign purchased image files with, the new minimum price for any piece is $27. This is the biggest impact of this change (besides, of course, more money for the artist!) If you previously had art pieces on the site listed for under $27, we have automatically updated the price to the new minimum. For everyone else, you won’t see any changes to your listings. That said, please let us know if you are seeing any issues with the pricing in your store.
For the Future
As many of you know, we’re still a very young company, and our vision for CO2ign Art is ever-evolving. We’re super excited about some of the new features we have coming in the next months and think you will be, too!
We’ll continue to evolve as we grow, but we also want to make sure that our current site policies correctly reflect our company priorities – supporting independent artists and protecting the environment – and we’re so grateful for everyone who’s contributed to our progress so far.
