Artist Alley Offerings

There are different types of tables offered at Anime Crossroads Artist Alley. Please review them to see what best fits your needs as an artist. Subletting of tables is not permitted by Anime Crossroads.

Standard Table

These tables are the majority available to all general artists.

  • Cost: $150
  • Badges: 1
  • Table size: 6ft by 2ft

New Artist Table

These tables are dedicated to artists that are selling their art at a convention for the first time, promoted as such and put in their own section. Other than that, they are the same as a standard table. This is based on the honor system. (Limited)

  • Cost: $150
  • Badges: 1
  • Table size: 6ft by 2ft
  • Applying to these tables does not limit you from having a standard table. However, it was intended for new Artists interested in selling at a convention for the first time. If this is not your first selling convention, please look into the Standard Tables.
    • (If there are not enough artists that apply as New Artists, these will be converted into Standard Tables)

Author’s Space

Author’s tables welcome authors to the convention that may not have enough merchandise to fill a full space. These tables will be promoted as Authors. Authors may still apply for a standard table if they can use the space. (Limited)

  • Cost: $75
  • Badges: 1
  • Half Standard Table Size: 3ft x 2ft
  • This is a SHARED 6ft x 2ft table. You will get a designated half, and another Author will get a designated half. Please do not encroach on another Author’s space.
  • If you believe you will have more product than the space provided, please look into Standard Tables
    • (If there are not enough artists that apply as Authors, these will be converted into Standard Tables)

Double Tables

  • Table Size: 12ft x 2ft

Artist Booth
