this is f-ing amazing! it looks so crisp and clean and perfect, like a genuine screen print!

I'm guessing it's not washer safe though?

it's still a cool idea for fabric items you don't have to wash (like pillows) but it'd be great to figure out a way to make it stick forever.

LOVE this idea.

I use the Patch, and I've been given like 20 square containters to hold the unused patches in and I was getting annoyed with them because I didn't know what to do with them

I hope I didn't toss all of them out. I can't remember *runs to her room*

and thanks dyabolica  for the glue/acrylic idea. I don't have money to spend on new paints.

Hi Ms. paige,

I think you should charge more for your bracelets.  Can you actually make money selling them for that price? Once you subtract the shipping, the supplies (including packaging), any equipment you may use, you're probably not making much. And if you divide it by the number of hours you work, you probably are making very little per hour. Think about the time you spend making them, taking pics, going to the post office, to buy supplies, answering emails, packaging things up, etc.

Even if you keep the price, but charge shipping on top of the $20. If it's just a hobby, you may be happy just to make your money back, but you're not going to make much profit. I like your bracelets and the quality appears to be very high. You can charge more. Remember, it's hard to raise your prices later on!


I was charging $25 for them but I decided to drop it $5 because I wanted to get the moving out faster, which worked. I sold nearly half of my stuff within the first week. When I start making different types of jewlery, and am able to do custom work, I'll make more profit, but right now I'm just trying to make a little bit of profit so that I can buy more molds and other supplies to get started on the other ideas I have.

walmart kills small town business and censors music... not cool.

anyhoo.. I really like that design. did you use a stencil? or fabric paint pens or something? those lines look really straight and even.. better than I could ever do by hand.

I don't like the paypal idea because it takes like 2.5% or something like that. I'm not making enough money to be able to afford paying to have people pay me with credit cards. Plus, I don't have my own checking account to use to get my money from paypal.. which means I'd have to wait for some monthly check (which would be lame!)

Umm...please pardon my nosiness, and you certainly don't have to answer this question, but...why on earth don't you just get a checking account?  So many things are direct deposit these days; it makes life a lot easier.

I don't have a checking account because I'm only 17 and I don't have a job right now.. so it'd be really pointless for me to get one.

anyone have any tips on how to remove/clean the resin off of the measureing cups and spoons. I don't want to have to keep buying new stuff each time I make a set of bracelets. would buying a glass measuring cup work better? so far I've used cheap plastic ones, and I can't seem to get the resin to come off of it.
