Welcome to The #Hashtag Library!

Here you will find a compilation of targeted art and craft focused hashtags used by fellow artists! Use these hashtags in your own Instagram posts to help increase your own exposure of yourself and your posts, or to discover new artists to be inspired by. Learn more by visiting the #Hashtags Basics page.

This entire experience is built on community involvement! The #Hashtag Project is simply a compilation of hashtags that your fellow artists use on Instagram to build their audiences. The intent is to build a list of hashtags that we can all use with our own posts that are more targeted to our audiences for fostering growth in not only our individual followers or likes, but to cultivate the artist community on Instagram as well.

The #Hashtag Project will be an organic resource that will continually evolve in two ways:

  1. Artists submit hashtags to be included in the listing
  2. Artists use hashtags from the library in their own posts

 

Submit your hashtags to The #Hashtag Project.

Other #Hashtags To Use (not featured in The #Hashtag Project)

The #Hashtag Project list can only be sooooo long and can’t possibly feature every single hashtag that you might want to use for your posts. Take a look at your post and what do you see? Did you take a picture of the Eiffel Tower? Some hashtags you could use would be #eiffeltower, #paris, #france etc. Although these might not be targeted enough, it gives you an idea of what to look for when looking for hashtags to use for a post.

Another example would be if you used a stamp ink from a designer from a particular manufacturer. You could hashtag the type of ink, the designer, and the manufacturer to help increase your exposure because many times the designers and manufacturers will share/re-post GREAT projects that feature their products. AND you can tag the designer and manufacturer as well (@designers_name, @craft_manufacturer).

Why aren’t manufacturers, designers for products and companies featured in The #Hashtag Project? 

The #Hashtag Project is being created to support artists and their work, and to help build their own profiles and Instagram presence. After conversations with many different artists who work in a variety of different mediums, we all agreed that having a list that excluded these types of hashtags would avoid showing any bias or conflicts of interest towards any particular company, their products or individual.

The #Hashtag Project Library would quickly turn into a ‘who’s who’ listing of brands, with names and products overpowering the list of hashtags that potentially reach a wider audience of artists and those who are inspired by the art they create. Outside of the ‘craft’ industry, most working artists do not put a premium on a particular designer, product or manufacturer but instead focus their energy on the totality of their work and the finished piece of art that they have created and The #Hashtag Project supports this ideal.

 

Submitting To The #Hashtag Project

It’s easy to be part of The #Hashtag Project – the more artists who join, the more successful this will become! Prior to submitting your information, please take a few minutes to read the guidelines below about the “basics” about using hashtags on Instagram for inclusion into the hashtag library.

Here’s the basics for submitting your hashtags to The #Hashtag Project library by email (click on this link)with the following information:

  • your full name AND Instagram account name
  • website/blog of your artwork if you would like to be included in a future artist directory
  • your list of targeted and original/unique hashtags (see guidelines and examples). NOTE: manufacturers, businesses, and designers with product lines are not included in The #Hashtag Project.
  • specify separately any original/unique hashtags that you have personally created for other’s to use and help grow your exposure

It’s that simple! Once you’ve submitted your information, it will be added to the hashtag library =)
