Off-Site Shops

Choose from three off-site Melasdesign print-to-order shops for a myriad of product choices. Melasdesign shops on Art of Where, Society6, RedBubble, and CafePress offer diverse product lines with art from Melasdesign, so the warehouse is handled by THEM, keeping the Melasdesign studio from bursting at the seams. Each purchase benefits the artist (at least a little). Read more about these shops below. Going handmade (see above) is the best way to support the artist.
