Crafters Liability Insurance

As a craft vendor, odds are that you are looking for easy crafters vendor insurance. Most likely it's because a show or a venue that you attend has required you to have a policy and list them as an additional insured. An Artist, Crafters, and Tradesmen (ACT) insurance policy can be purchased online in about 10 minutes.

Crafters liability insurance from ACT was created to provide craft vendors with great coverage at an affordable price. So, how does an ACT crafters policy protect you? Consider this example:

If someone were to get hurt because of the way you set up your canopy or tent, having a current crafters policy could protect you from having to cover expensive medical costs and even your defense attorney fees.

Not every crafter has the same liability insurance needs, so we've created two policies that can be customized to your business. Both policies are available online and offer you 24/7 access to your insurance documents. We also provide you with free, unlimited additional insureds and when you add an event or a director as an additional insured we'll even send them proof of insurance for you.

Show Policy

Our Show Policy is an excellent crafters insurance option if you only need general liability and short-term coverage. This policy starts at 1–3 days for only $39 and can be extended up to 90 days for $89. To buy a show policy, click here.

Annual Policy

The Annual Policy not only provides crafters with excellent liability insurance, but it also has coverage for your business personal property. Optional professional liability is available for an additional premium. This policy provides 365 days of coverage from the date of purchase and starts at only $265. It is also the policy that responds to our most common claims. To buy an Annual Policy, click here. .
