21  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: where do i start with this whole website thing???? on: April 29, 2006 01:41:13 PM
I assume you're wanting to sell your goods. My suggestion, for the time being, would be to set up an Etsy.com shop. You don't need website, shopping cart, etc knowledge, and it's a good way to get your name out there. I say that because websites do take time and I'm not sure what you can get for $200. (Maybe a craftster could help you start out for a low price Tongue)
Or on those sleepless nights you could practice learning HTML on a free site like geocities.com and doing research. I found learning HTML hard at first, but one day it all of a sudden clicked.
Good luck!

You could try doing some Rasterbations...

You could make it as big or small as you want. All you need is a printer with ink, and lots of paper...

25  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Using your legal name as your business name. on: February 28, 2006 06:15:32 PM
Thanks both for you opinion.
I never thought about my name being a marketing tool, but it makes total sense!

I still have a short time to think about it. I just wish I had a super rad name like, Rainbow Butterfly, or something horribly cheesy like that. Tongue
26  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Site with wholesale gift/food boxes? on: February 28, 2006 06:05:22 PM
I know that boxes aren't exactly supplies, but they are a part of some craftster's projects.
I was wondering if anyone knows of any good sites to buy blank (coloured is okay) gift boxes wholesale. Specifically food safe boxes that you could put cupcakes or cookies in.

Thanks peoples

I saw that too. It was Valoir!
I had never seen the show, she mentioned in this thread she was on it, so the first time I saw it, I saw her.

You were great!
28  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Using your legal name as your business name. on: February 26, 2006 07:52:46 PM
Rather than making up a business name, I was thinking that I might like to use my actual name for my business.
I.e. ____ _____ Designs, _____ ______ Jewelry, etc.
I was wondering, those of you that do, have you ever had any complications with it? I guess I'm mainly wondering about safety.
Also, what made you decide to use your actual name, rather than a made up name?

Thanks everyone
29  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Long-distance business partnerships? on: February 17, 2006 11:03:59 AM
I'm sure there are people on this board that have had bad experiences with similar things.

I have a long distance business partnership going on, my partners are in Canada, and I'm in the States. I have known them my entire life, but recently moved away, so I can't offer advice about partnering with someone you don't know. I just wanted to mention that we are finding it to be more difficult that we expected. The communication is hard, we can no longer make things together, and my not having a "creative support group" of sorts is kind of difficult.

How about finding someone in your area that is a crafter and proposing this idea? You can post this idea on the craftster board of your state (or country depending where you are). Maybe you can find a fellow craftster in your area so that you both can feel comfortable selling products together.
