Vendor Insurance for Jewelry Makers, Crafters, Artists, and More
Are you hoping to sell your jewelry, artwork, and other handmade items at a festival or show, but you just found out you need insurance coverage?
Vendor insurance from Artists, Crafters, and Tradesmen (ACT) Insurance is easy to purchase, easy to understand, and is available with two great coverage options to fit both your needs and the needs of the show you'll be attending.
The Show Policy
When you choose the short-term Show Policy from ACT, you can purchase general liability insurance for up to 90 days of coverage. This policy is best for those artisans, crafters, apparel vendors, and more who do not hand make their products, only plan on attending one or two shows, or who only sell at events seasonally.
In addition to general liability, the Show Policy also provides coverage for damage to premises rented. Together, these coverages meet the insurance requirements of most shows, festivals, expos, and art & craft fairs, with prices starting at only $49.
Please note that your actual products are not covered, regardless of whether they are sold online or at a festival. If your items have the potential to cause personal injury or property damage and you are hand making them, you will need the more robust coverages offered under the Annual Policy.

The Annual Policy
ACT's Annual Policy offers artists and crafters the most robust coverages and better bang for your buck, especially if you are attending 3 or more events per year and your products are handmade by you. For multiple events that occur year-round, the annual policy is more convenient and cost-effective than purchasing a short-term policy for each individual show.
In addition to added convenience, the Annual Policy also offers more coverage, including product liability, personal & advertising injury, and business personal property coverage. It also offers optional professional liability coverage for those who teach classes or provide demonstrations, as well as the choice of a higher limit for business personal property. Finally, it is the policy you need if you sell items online.

Additional Benefits of ACT Insurance
Both of our policies offer coverage at a variety of venues and are, for the most part, non-premises specific, with some exceptions, including art galleries for the Annual Policy and a short list of locations for the Show Policy (visit our Show Policy Exclusions page to view this list). So, whether you're attending fairs held in convention centers or outdoors, you can count on ACT.
ACT Insurance is also available for instant, online purchase with immediate access to proof of insurance and 24/7 access to your policy documents. Because we utilize a no-quote process, you save time and money without sacrificing quality insurance coverage.
Finally, you never have to pay a deductible on liability claims, giving you confidence and peace of mind before attending your event.
