Selling Games on Our Website
Thanks for your interest in adding a game to printplaygames.com!
Making your game available for sale on our website is certainly something we want to do. But, there are a few things that we ask designers to do before we post your game on the site.
Three Basic Steps
1) Order a copy or two of your game from us. This helps us ensure that a) you are happy with the product and b) you understand the service we are providing.
2) Get some buzz going. Use a copy of the game you order from us to demo at game groups and gaming events you attend. Do you have a BGG page for the game? Do you have a website? Is there are a place for feedback or community discussion? We want to be able to refer customers to you when need be.
3) Create enough interest for a 1st print run. Before we post your game on our website, we want to see enough interest to make 10 – 15 copies. This gives us enough capital to cover all the setup and get things rolling.
What comes next?
From there we just have a soft agreement with designers. You retain all rights to your files and can remove the game from our website at any time. We also hold the right to take down your game should we need to. You can mark up the price of your game to earn money. You will earn 80% of your mark up in cash or 100% in store credit. We run the royalty report about once a year (unless we sell a bunch of your game), and anything over $15 can be cashed out.
That pretty much covers it. We love helping people get their games made and played. So, we hope this works out for you. We will be here and ready when you are.
Let us know if you have any questions, and if you’re ready to move forward, send us an email!
