Our collaboration program is built from our Elev8 At Home (now Elev8 Dolls) program. It works on the same affiliate system that's tried and true. The idea of our collaboration program is to bring more awareness to artists as a community as well as our site. This, in turn, helps make Elev8 Glass Gallery a hub to get high-quality artistic products.
Why join Elev8 as an artist?
- Collaboration. This is how we like to think of our partnership. We offer a place to sell your art or promote other art you love while you help support a group of like-minded individuals.
- Elev8 knows working alone is tough, working in a community is much more fulfilling and rewarding. We have over 70,000 unique visitors each month to our website. When someone is looking for a type of glass you make, your products come up in their search, giving you maximum exposure.
- Elev8 is owned and operated by people just like you. In fact, the owner taught himself to blow glass in 2004 for the need to build the world-renowned Silver Surfer Vaporizer. As a glassblower, manufacturer, inventor, and aspiring comedian, Steve lives his life in a higher state of mind, body, and spirit, he says is the way of Elev8.
- We have been in the industry for 15 years and have evolved with it.
- We have a sales team that will help you push your art to more shops.
- Internationally known
- You will gain an online gallery of your collection of high-quality images. Instagram is a great tool, but not the same as an online web page with high-quality images. People also are looking for glass on Google, not Instagram. With your web page, it allows a better searching for what you have to offer on the web. You also get a link on your page to your Instagram page to tie it all together. We want our customers to get to know YOU.

Elev8 Collaboration Partnership:
AGREEMENT, RULES, AND REGULATIONS FOR COLLABORATION PARTNERSHIP
- You must fill out this FORM.
When you fill out this form you are agreeing to all the terms, rules conditions laid out on this web page. Once approved we will let you know. This usually happens in 5 business days.
- Listed Glass
- When you list an individual piece it must be over $200 retail with high quality images (good images sell glass)
- If you are listing a group you can list pieces as low as $100. You must have 6 or more pieces to qualify for this.
- If you have production work you can have it added to our system for wholesale customers as well as retail customers to see and purchase. Contact email@example.com to discuss this more.
- If you sell your product you must notify us immediately so we can mark it as sold. If you wish to leave it up and your piece is a repeatable piece of glass the description must say that it is alike the picture but not the same as it is a custom repeatable.
- If you sell your art without notifying us, and it then sells online because you did not inform us there are two options.
You must pick one of these and you agree to these rules when you sign up. This is to ensure amazing customer service for you and Elev8 Glass Gallery.
- The first option is you must remake the item equal to or better than the first and get it shipped out to the customer in 5 business days. We feel this needs to be rushed as our customer was under the impression the piece was available, but because you failed to let Elev8 know it sold we need to push this through. Our customer service team will message the customer and we have found the average customer is open to this.
- If you can not do remake the part, the next option is to pay Elev8 Glass Gallery 10% of your listing retail price to cover labor for talking with the customer, we will give the customer a 10% discount on another item we carry to try not to loose the customer or give them a bad experience. This is our hit and your hit for not letting us know you sold your piece.
- If you want to keep an item up that sold on our site or from you, we can do this for you. Just make sure we know so we can let the customer know the piece is made to order. When you leave a piece up to be made to order, you must have the piece completed in 5 days from the time you are notified that it sold. This is to ensure the highest customer service possible. We are a team and the customer must be taken care of.
- You must provide high-quality images of your product for the website. The better the images, the better the buyer will feel when making a purchase.
- Must be a min of 1080 x 1080 72 dpi for web.
- Any good camera will be able to do this, and the new phones will do amazingly
- You must provide a minimum of 6 pictures.
- We offer photography services if you are local, or want to ship your work to us. We do this for $15. This includes taking the pictures on a white and black background with light room editing.
- We can ship your art for you.
You must upload your art by hitting the button below
- You agree to our code of conduct
- You agree that your glass will reflect any store-wide sales Elev8 Glass Gallery Online may have and you understand there will be a discount on the money earned. You will be paid out the percentage below based on the sold price, but you will fall into the % category of the initial retail set price. So, if you have your piece at $600 retail, and we do a sale at 50% off, you will be paid 90% of the $300 sale price.

Sales On Other Products From Elev8 Glass Gallery
- When you sign up with this program, you can also join out Partnership Program and earn money on other products sold on the site.
- Once you sign up you will get a code to give to people. We can put the code on your banner on your page to help (see example). This code is used to get you the credit when you send some one to the site and they buy something from the site. We get it, if you know the person they may be buying your glass from you, but there are a lot of other things we have like the infamous Silver Surfer Vaporizer that your customers and friends may want. Now you have a way to help them get that, and make some extra cash.
- Elev8 Glass Gallery online offers free shipping on orders over $100 to its customers. You are responsible for shipping charges as they will not be collected from the customer unless your art sells below $100.
- You must ship the product within 48 business hours of the item selling if you do not store the product at Elev8 Distribution or Elev8 Premier.
- You must pick a service that can be tracked like Fedex and UPS. Do NOT trust USPS to track a package.
- If your item ships from our warehouse shipping will come from the sales price of the glass. We offer free shipping on orders over $100, but shipping is not free. We are earning money from your hard work so we want to pay half of the shipping, if your glass ships from our warehouse.
- Examples of sales earned from your piece sold at $200. Shipping cost is $8, you pay $4. You earn 78% or $156 but you will have to pay 1/2 shipping so you will get $152 paid to you. (THESE CHARGES LISTED ARE ESTIMATES AND NOT ACTUAL QUOTES)
