Liability Insurance for Crafters

As a craft business owner or vendor, whether you do the work as your full-time job or as a side project to earn a few extra bucks each month, you have the creativity and skill to make products that people want. Maybe you even attend art fairs to market your crafts. If you do, you need to be sure you have prepared for the risks that come from attending these events. See a few examples here: common artist & crafter insurance claims.

Are you financially prepared in case a customer claims they hurt themselves while handling your craft or were injured while they were in your booth?

Common Crafters Insurance Questions

Crafters insurance protects you and your business against damages and defense costs caused by your business operations. For example, if someone were to get injured because of the way you set up your booth at a craft fair, having a current crafters insurance policy from Artists, Crafters, and Tradesmen (ACT) Insurance could help you pay for their medical expenses and the cost of hiring a lawyer.
ACT insurance has several pricing options for crafters. The Show Policy starts at $39 for 1–3 days of coverage, but for only $89 you can extend your coverage for a full 90 days. If you are a crafter who attends many shows throughout the year, the ACT Annual Policy will give you coverage for 365 days for only $265.
Many shows, fairs, and festivals require crafters to have a current liability insurance policy and to name the event and its directors as an additional insured. However, when you purchase a policy from ACT Insurance, you also position you and your business as a serious and responsible professional.
