ArtFire.com, a marketplace for handmade crafts, has launched a completely customizable storefront solution. The Fusion Studios combine a website with an online venue, allowing users with little to no programming training to put together a specialized studio website custom-built to suit their particular style, while still receiving the traffic of an online venue.

Users can insert ads, widgets, videos, and flash animation into the sidebar and bottom of their studio to better build their brand and display other sites they manage including other marketplaces, live video streams and twitter or social media feeds.

ArtFire has also launched an online publication called HandmadeNews.org to offer arts and craft news. The writers of Handmade News are artisans with extensive experience in the handmade world and online handmade marketplace.
