sophieploeg.com is a participant in affiliate programs of various sellers (such as Amazon, Jackson's Art Materials etc), which are designed to provide a means for website owners to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to products on these external sites. Most of my affiliate links can be found on my blog.
This means that I earn a small commission (usually it varies between 1% and 5%) if you click through and make a purchase through these carefully chosen links. If you purchase any products through these links it will cost you nothing extra.
I will only link to products I can truly recommend and which are related to the topic at hand. If possible I will always try to base my recommendations on personal use, but cannot always guarantee this. My blog aims to inform first and foremost.
I would never want to hurt the reader's trust by recommending products simply because I would earn an affiliate income on it so I hope that transparency will help keep things clear.
My website links to various products that I discuss, review, or appreciate, most of them are books or art materials. I do not earn any other income from my blog so if you use the affiliate links I will take this as an appreciation of my blog.
My main affiliate partner is Jackson’s Art Materials: the place where I buy all my own art materials. I earn 5% from any purchases made directly through my links. I highly rate and recommend this shop as they are always helpful, knowledgable, quick to deliver, have reasonable delivery cost; they listen to their customers and have an enormous range of products.
