Etsy Stalker has earned a reputation as a place to discover the best and brightest of handmade creations and vintage items. Like our daily themed exhibits, Shadowboxes are a completely curated feature, given on the basis of application only. It is important to us that each shadowbox is right for Etsy Stalker and the aesthetic we maintain.

What is a Shadowbox?

A Shadowbox serves as gallery style advertising on our site. It can be used to feature an individual’s work or to promote the members of an Etsy Team. Listings in your Shadowbox link directly to your Etsy shop or to whichever site you prefer. Shadowboxes launch on the fifteenth of each month and run until the fourteenth of the following month.

Please note: Shadowboxes are not limited to Etsy sellers. Provided you are able to send us cropped pictures, we can link your Shadowbox to any site you’d like.

What are the Benefits of a Shadowbox?

  • Shadowboxes benefit from traffic from our large and established readership, 10,000 Twitter followers, and 7,000 Facebook fans.
  • Each Shadowbox will have a 200×200 image in our FABULOUS large rotating slider bar on the main page of our site. Talk about prime advertising real estate!
  • Each Shadowbox will have a turn to be “Shadowbox of the Day” during which we link directly to your Shadowbox on Facebook and Twitter.
  • There will be a strict cap of 25 Shadowboxes each month. You won’t get lost in the shuffle!
