To get started, just go to And for best results, follow these five rules:

Shop around – Compare different sellers and use the “Favorites” feature to build a shopping list before you buy.

Examine closely – Check reviews, response time, number of gigs completed and gig details. Questions? Ask the seller before buying.

Communicate clearly – Save time by spelling out in exact detail what you want in your order.

Accept nothing less than perfection – Top sellers are often happy to make revisions until you’re happy.
