1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Hands up if you like hairy men! on: December 13, 2009 08:18:22 AM
This is my newest craftation and I'm really happy with it because I accidently made it irreversible and it was so simple, just like sewing a big pouch really without the hassles of putting in a zip Cheesy



And if anyone can guess who the bearded man is will win a prize no jokes because I'm thinking its pretty unlikely heh heh heh  Roll Eyes
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Small question about badge machines! on: October 01, 2008 11:59:55 AM
Sorry if this is in the wrong section but didn't really know where to put it !

My question !

When you buy a badge machine do you need to buy that brand/models badge parts or can you buy any badge components as long as they are the same size?

I'm thinking of taking the plunge & investing in a proper badge machine but don't know what to buy size wise either! I want to one of those types that can make badges, mirrors, magnets & bottle openers etc, something that's a bit versatile basically.

Any help would be great so thanks in advance!

She like's to dance & laugh alot & she LOVES to sing, especially as this is the only time she is able to fly - poor fairy!



My next plush will be a ping pong champ or maybe this fashionable bear!
4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Any advice, info or tips on getting press? on: May 25, 2008 10:53:29 AM

How do brands get their items into magazines/the media? (I don't mean blogs or online zines etc)

I was assuming that you contact the correct person to send jpegs to via email then if they're interested you send samples but then I realised I'm actually just guessing!

Anyone with experience in the matter?

5  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Selling designs to card publishing companies on: May 11, 2008 04:41:20 AM

I also posted this on the ENGLAND section but it's a bit slow there so thought I might have more luck here, hope thats okay!!!



I don't suppose anyone here has any experience with selling designs to card publishing companies? ie Hallmark etc

There isn't much info on the web about it (not that I can find anyway) I know you can email designs to some places & then they review it but I wanted to know what the deal was in terms of money & copyright mainly.

For example do you sell your design to them & you get a lump sum or royalties on how many sell & roughly how much money do you get from either?

Any help, advice, tips, links will be greatly recieved Thanks!

7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / How do you package your orders when you ship them out? on: May 04, 2008 04:46:21 AM

I don't mean how the actual item is presented (i.e pinned to card etc) I mean when you actually go to post it what do you put it in? Just a jiffy bag? some fancy box?

I've got a few ideas but thought its quite an interesting point as I've never bought anything from a online designer/boutique so I don't know what's normal & what's not!

 Huh
8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Peg bag ahoy! on: April 21, 2008 02:32:32 PM
For the UK/ROI swop I made my partner a peg bag along with other things, since I've made more with the remaining fabric which have turned out sooo much better, I'm not sure why, I think its just practice makes perfect as I'm not the best of sewers & also as I wasn't in a rush to do it all (I had loads of problems last min!) I was able to calm it & position it all better.






I should of gave my partner the yellow one as I think the purple stands out more but I was crazy rushing so wasn't thinking straight at the time
This is what I sent her



 
Whatcha ma reckon? Better?
