Interested in the coop?
Over 100 extraordinarily creative Québec craftspeople, artists and designers working in a range of disciplines currently exhibit and sell their work in our boutique. Our membership includes both established artists and up-and-coming talent.
Among the artists showing their work at L’Empreinte, 23 are active members of our cooperative, which means that in addition to their creative work, they also help run the coop and oversee sales. The remaining 70 are guest artists. We also have a dedicated sales team staffed by customer service professionals.
Thinking of selling with us?
Guest artists at L’Empreinte benefit from a strategic sales point that provides access to an international clientele without the responsibilities of being a member.
Having guest artists means we can diversify our offer while maintaining our standards of quality. L’Empreinte coopérative is greatly enhanced by the talent and creativity of its guest artists.
If you are a Québec artist wishing to sell your products at our boutique as a guest artist, you must submit an application, using this form. You must also provide the link to your website. If you don’t have a website, then you can send us the link to your Facebook page.
- The selection criteria are as follows:
- Aesthetic qualities
- Technical mastery
- Choice of materials
- Made by a Québec artist
- How the works enhance the variety of our current inventory
Applications can be submitted at any time during the year and will be kept on file. Our director or manager will contact you if we think your products are a great match.
L’Empreinte coopérative sells guests artists’ products on a consignment basis and retains 50% of the retail price. In return, the coop ensures meticulous and diligent management. Sales revenue is paid monthly by bank transfer and an inventory is kept.
For any questions about the process, please feel free to contact us.
