Artist Alley FAQs
Q: How do I sign up for a table?
A: All artist alley hopefuls are required to submit application/portfolio of the artwork you plan to sell at the convention. This portfolio should include:
- Name of head seller and any helpers (Legal names that can be confirmed with ID)
- Phone Number/s to be reached by at the convention
- E-Mail Address
- Artist’s webpage (if available) to be used in programs/brochures
- A mock setup of your artist alley table, displaying your merchandise. If you have sold at previous conventions, a photo of your setup will be fine. If not, please look online for examples of artist alley tables, and set up a mock-table at home!
- Six detailed examples of your work – must be sent by email, not part of a website
Q: How much do tables cost?
Q: How do I get extra badges?
A: A single badge comes bundled with the table cost. You can get up to two additional badges for $25 each if ordered before October 1st. If you have help that arrives during the weekend of the convention, please contact the Artist Alley head.

Q: When can I come to claim my table?
A: Thursday around 6pm-Midnight. Or Friday 9am-2pm.
Q: What if I can’t get to the convention before opening on Friday?
A: You will need to contact the Artist Alley Directors on Thursday by either phone or email to let them know of the delay. If you have not contacted the Directors by Friday an hour before opening, 2pm, your table will be forfeited. Obviously the earlier you can let the Directors know the better.
Q: What is allowed for me to sell?
A: Fanart! But in all seriousness, the artwork able to be sold must be from the artists that have submitted works in the portfolio. If there’s going to be more than one artist to a table we recommend including an extra 6 pieces of work so that both are properly showcased. Mass-produced items are not allowed: having works sent off for someone else to manufacture. We also don’t allow copy-paste work.
