There are currently 2 categories of accounts on TeePublic: Artisan Accounts and Apprentice Accounts. They are not based on the amount of sales an account generates.
Artisan Accounts: These accounts represent artists who design unique products most likely to interest their customers browsing the TeePublic Marketplace. They may include everyone from top sellers to brand new sign-ups just starting out. For examples of content by Artisan Accounts, check out the Artists To Watch collection.
- Apprentice Accounts: These accounts represent artists who are less discerning about the products they design, which are less likely to interest their customers browsing the TeePublic Marketplace. For example, they may be spamming TeePublic at high volumes, exploring more automated content like vector packs or clip art, or may not have uploaded enough art to differentiate themselves from these types of creators.
