Society6 vs Redbubble

Both have introduced bedding to their collections this month - both as duvet covers without pillowcases. The prices compare as such. (these are based on my prices, each designer sets their own on RB) 
            Redbubble Society6
Twin       £58.73           N/A
Queen    £72.78         £58.34
King       £86.32         £76.02
Also - why in america is queen smaller than king? That’s gonna confuse a lot of British folk. Luckily they supply dimensions.

             Redbubble  Society6
Twin         68” X 88”       N/A
Queen     88” X 88”      88” X 88”
King        104” X 88”   104” X 88”
oh no, scrap that. This just brings us onto another thing to consider my fair countrymen and women - our ‘double’ duvet size is 200cm (77”ish) squared so the US ‘twin’ is a UK ‘single’ but still pretty much neither of these products will fit our duvets comfortably

I’m gutted. 

Buuuuut If you’re still interesting in purchasing a new duvet from either of these companies (maybe you’re not english…maybe you have a US duvet for some reason… maybe you’re clever and are going to use it for something else entirely like a wall hanging or a summer sheet) I personally recommendRedbubble at this point from the designers point of view. 

My reason being that with Redbubble you can be really picky about layout and size as you can upload an entirely separate high res file for it, where as with Society6 you have to use the same upload file for the duvet as the tote bags and scatter cushions. I’m worried about upscaling, and personally for my designs - i’ve found that this hasn’t translated well. You can see for yourself on the pics above.

Also it infuriates me that i cant opt out of some of the designs for bedding with S6. If i want totes and cushions i have to have bedding - regardless of whether the design suits it or not - please don’t judge me on that!


Well, i hope that helps some people even if it does put you off buying something with my design on. I’d rather you know what you’re getting yourselves into. :)
