About the Cube-Fam

As a member of the cube-fam you get more than just a place to sell your stuff… You get a community of like-minded people, working together and cheering each other on at the sidelines.

As a member you can list your handmade products on our online store without paying any commission on sales and we handle the customer service and shipping of items to our customers. We do all the marketing of the store, and you get to sit back and focus on the part you really love… making!

Will you help me grow my business?

Hell yes! This is what we’re all about!

In our cuber group, you’ll be able to participate in a monthly live-chat catch-up and a monthly business development theme to help you level up your brand. We also run workshops on topics like instagram, seo, websites, branding, graphic design and more and you can also book 1:1 mentoring sessions to level up your brand anytime!

Each month you will earn cube-credits to put towards our:

  • marketing workshops,
  • 1:1 mentoring,
  • services such as photography,
  • putting work in our art shows,
  • using our workshop facilities to run events
  • OR, you can also save up your dollars and get a gift voucher to buy yourself something nice! Neat huh?

How does it work?

  • You become a member;
  • You list your products on our portal;
  • You send them to us;
  • You get involved in our online community;
  • We do the marketing and shipping;
  • And we’re here to help you along the way!

Will you promote my work?

Absolutely! You will be given the opportunity to be part of our magazine advertising,  social media marketing (7,500 facebook and 5,800 insta) and email marketing to 3,500 people and are even able to collaborate with us on product launches and pop ups in our space! That’s exposure to more than 16,000 handmade lovers!

Not only that, but we will teach YOU how to promote yourself better, empowering you to grow your business!

Can I rent a cube in the store?

If you would like to also have a cube in the physical store(s) you can book at anytime and pay by the day (discounts for long term cubers) to release a new collection, test a new product or just to have a physical shop front as one of our retail cubers! Many of our cube renters have been with us for years, and consider their cube the retail arm of their business!

Cube Rental Info HERE

Will I get to collaborate and interact with other makers?

YES! Once you join you’ll have immediate access to our maker community of more than 120 makers who are working together to grow their handmade/arts based businesses.

The community is on our private social network which you can access online or via our app and we are constantly collaborating and encouraging one another to try new things.
