The Kase - Artists Against Commission Change
This petition is in regards to the recent change in commission for The Kase artists from 10% to 5%. 5% is completely unacceptable and we have not agreed to this new renumeration. Had we known this was the commission to start, we would not have uploaded our work in the first place. We do not work for only 5%.
We have watched excitedly as The Kase has grown, have cheered you (and us) all along, celebrated in your (and therefore our) success, shared on our social networks. We really had high hopes to grow right along with you. However, to our dismay, instead of sharing your success by rewarding the very artists who helped create that success, you have undercut and in essence hurt the artists instead. The very same artists who your business model is centered upon, and that wish to continue to sell their work in your stores with a fair commission.
We all feel that these new terms are counter to the successful relationship The Kase has established with its roster of artists and ask you to reconsider the terms. We wish to resolve this with a return to the Print on Demand industry standard of 10% commission per sale. However, as a last resort we have collectively decided that if a fair resolution can't be reached we will be forced to remove our designs from the site until such a resolution can be agreed upon.
