1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: New Business Card Idea, what do you think on: November 24, 2006 05:36:37 AM
It sounds like a good idea, and if you don't want to use the printer you could always silk screen the design using a photo emulsion process. Although that is more time consuming and you might want to push up the price a bit if you went that way.



I don't think I could find time for doing that, although I do want to learn about it one day.

I will definitley have to try that.  Maybe next week though.  The most awful thing has happened, my whole family is sick.  First Husband, then me, then baby.  My 7 y.o. daughter is yet to get sick, I hope she can be spared, it was the worst flu I have ever had.  When baby got it we took her straight to the doctor.  Well, she is almost 3, not really a baby, but she is "the baby". 

Thanks for the tips!

Please note that these photo's do not show off the product to full advantage.

Or something like that?

That's a great idea!

I would think that would be nice - you may want to note the little story about the sandbox too.
 
Maybe something like:

Please note that these photos do not show off the product to full advantage due to a mishap involving a little monkey of mine, a nice camera, and an unauthorized trip to the sandbox.

hehe, I couldn't resist. But an explanation might help. It seems a lot of buyers are also Etsy sellers, who should know the woes of getting the "right" picture.

I absolutley love that.  would it be a problem if I just said that?  Its perfect!

What would you think about having your business card made from 100% handmade recycled paper? 

And, would it still be considered handmade if the printer did the work?  I would make the paper still of course, but I couldn't possibly handprint anything. 

I am thinking of selling packs of 40 printed cards for $12 (as long as the designing isn't too time consuming for me - have to think of guidelines for that still - any ideas?)

I am thinking of putting them in my etsy shop.

Any opinions would be great! Thanks!

6  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Anyone missing banner now on V2? on: November 14, 2006 05:19:05 PM
is anyone missing their banner now that V2 is online?  I also can't access the appearance page.  I wonder if its just me because I live in a rural area, have satelite internet, and its practically blizzarding outside.  Maybe I just can't connect to that area tonight. 

If anyone else is having issues with that let me know, so I can email support.

I think a note in the description is good. Also, if you can get any kind of clear picture, even if it's small, use it.

a note about the bad photography? like this:

Please note that these photo's do not show off the product to full advantage.

Or something like that?

I found the backgrounds to be very distracting.  They are cute, but hard to shop.  I also thought the home page was a bit confusing, it took me a few moments to figure out where the products were.  Other than that, you have great products.  The big thing I have been seeing is about photo's, how they should have a white background and be consistent.

I gave my ferret to a rescue group after we found out my husband was practically deathly allergic, so I know how much ferrets love pouches and hammocks.

Maybe the measurements were there, I honestly was distracted by my kids, it was just before supper and they were hungry.
