The Myth

One of the most popular myths about Redbubble, especially on reddit, is that the reviews on it’s website are fake.


It all started when new artists uploaded their artwork on Redbubble’s site, and automatically received reviews on their artwork.

The artists claimed they received reviews before they even made one sale. So, they must be fake, right?

I uploaded all my art work on [Redbubble’s] site. But then I noticed my items (havent sold anything yet) already had 81 reviews. Hmm..

The Truth

Reviews that you see on the Redbubble site are for the quality of the materials, quality of the print, size/fit, and usefulness of products. For example, reviews could be about the durability of Redbubble’s stickers, the fit of their classic t-shirts, or the usefulness of their phone cases.

The reviews you see on Redbubble’s site is not for any specific artwork or design. They’re for different types of product, in general.

To see what people have to say about a particular artwork or design, you can go to the artist comment section instead. However, keep in mind that not all comments are made by customers. They can be made by anybody who’s a Redbubble member(opens in new window).
