Washington Artist and Crafter Vendor Insurance

ACT Insurance in Washington

Washington is well known for its arts and crafts community. From the long-standing Pike Place crafts market to smaller festivals held throughout the state, there are numerous opportunities for talented artists and crafters to sell their handmade items.

Whether you’re selling to the public online or in person at an arts or crafts festival, you need liability insurance to protect your business. This added security allows you to sell your goods with confidence, knowing you have support for when the unexpected happens.

Make sure you’re prepared before you start selling. Contact us about our two Artists, Crafters, and Tradesmen (ACT) Insurance policies. Both policies help keep your business finances safe when you attend shows and festivals anywhere in the United States, not just Washington.
