Subtlety vs sales

We like to think of RedBubble as an online art gallery with a non-stop launch party. But how obvious should the price stickers on the artwork be?

Our tendency has been to err on the side of being subtle with pricing and product information, in an effort to enhance the visual experience.

But have we overdone this? Is it clear enough you can actually buy the great artwork on display?

As a specific example, consider the Gallery. At the moment we don’t show prices, but what do you think of these two alternatives?

1. Products and prices shown in small text

2. Tick box (off by default) that when ticked shows the info from option 1
