our story

Collectival is built by dealers, for dealers. #WeFeelYourPain

We are rare book and manuscript dealers ourselves, and we feel your pain. Before we developed Collectival, we were wasting a ton of time every day doing things which could be – should be – integrated and automated, and pining for some new tools. The systems we and our colleagues were using were just out of date and the e-commerce and inventory management solutions we could find were designed for mass-produced items and lacked essential functionality for the art and collectibles industry. Because we needed it ourselves, for our own business, we made Collectival. Come join us.
