Affiliate Disclosure participates in various affiliate programs, which means we may earn commissions through links to retailer sites from qualifying purchases. When you click on links to those sites and make a purchase, we may be compensated.

Our goal is to provide the most helpful, honest, and accurate information possible to our audience. Our views and opinions are not dictated by compensation – we only recommend affiliates and products that align with our core values and mission.

However, we understand that the details and data we provide may change over time. We do our best to verify information for accuracy and reliability, but cannot be held responsible for inconsistencies beyond our control. Please reach out if you ever have concerns about any content on our site.

By using our affiliate links to make purchases, you help support the future development of We rely on commissions to pay our contributors and team so we can continue providing valuable resources for the design community.

We are selective about the affiliate programs we join and turned down over 87% of programs that approached us last year. We assess each on their reputation, quality of products/services, commission structure, cookie duration, and more.

Currently our main affiliate partnerships include:

– Amazon Associates – As one of the largest online retailers, Amazon offers millions of design-related products we may recommend across categories like books, tools, software, gear, and more.

– CJ Affiliate – We supplement our recommendations through CJ’s network of over 3,000 partner brands related to design, creativity, business, and technology.

– ShareASale – Similar to CJ, ShareASale provides access to over 4,000 merchants in various categories relevant to our audience.

Please note that while affiliates influence how and where we provide recommendations, they have little impact on the content we create. If you ever have feedback or concerns about our partnerships, don’t hesitate to contact us. We value our community and aim to improve based on your input.

Thank you for understanding the role affiliate marketing plays on our site. Now let’s get back to the fun stuff – fueling creativity and helping designers thrive!
