Artist Updates | Watermarks

Recently we’ve received feedback from artists requesting better protection for your art on Redbubble. We’ve taken into consideration your feedback and have released a shiny new watermarking tool.

Read on to find out how you implement this in your Redbubble shop.

What is a watermark?

Watermarks were first introduced in Italy in 1282. Since their inception, watermarks have been used on currency, stamps and any document where counterfeiting was to be discouraged.
On Redbubble, we offer you many options for using watermarks and have just added a new addition – the tiled watermark featuring the RB logo.

Why watermarks are important

There are many reasons why creators enable watermarks. Although nothing is 100% guaranteed, both watermarks and download protection (disabling right click) help to discourage would-be thieves from stealing your art.

How do I enable the new watermark?

  • Head on over to Redbubble.com and log in. Once you’re logged in, choose your account settings from the drop-down menu (or take this shortcut).
  • Scroll down the page until you find “Image Settings”. You’ll see the many options Redbubble offers for watermarks. For the latest tool click – Place a tiled watermark across my images.
  • You may also want to choose “Download Protection” while you’re there. By activating these tools, you are discouraging others from stealing your work.
  • Save your changes. That’s it! You’re done.

Not seeing the tiled watermark enabled on your designs?

  • Ensure you’ve updated the changes in your account settings and clicked “SAVE CHANGES” at the bottom of the page.
  • Try clearing your cache or refreshing the page.
  • Still having issues? Please contact us directly.
