1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Shipping gel candles on: September 14, 2009 12:26:06 PM
Not much advise other than package carefully!

Yoy may want to go talk to the people in the post office to see what they recommend in terms of packing.
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Affordable Web Design company or designers? on: September 14, 2009 12:22:49 PM
I've heard great stuff about http://tahoewebservice.com. I think he'll do all that stuff for you plus give you the ability to update the website yourself. Worth considering  Smiley
3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Hallmarking PMC jewellery for sale in the UK- has anyone done this? on: September 14, 2009 12:20:05 PM

Sorry that no one's responded to you. You may want to try vising the UK Business Forum here - ukbusinessforums.co.uk/forums. They may be better able to answer this question for you Smiley
4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: know where to find cheap wholesale knit/jersey skirts? (skirts, not shirts) on: September 14, 2009 12:17:09 PM
You may want to post this at http://t-shirtforum.com. They're all about t-shirts over there so they can probably give you a recommendation for a great supplier.
5  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Reusing old magazines etc... copyright question on: September 14, 2009 12:15:15 PM
Yes, generally that would be copyright infringement because what you are making is a derivative work.

Here are some posts for you to review:

Wow - sorry to hear that! They do tend to make stuff pretty difficult. It's really annoying  Roll Eyes.

I've heard about similar problems with paid craigslist ads... except they're not issuing refunds.
7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Specialty Holiday Items? on: September 19, 2008 12:47:12 PM
Holiday items do well for me but I don't make too many. I do allow people to special order. I have a lot of clothes for kids and parents tend to like to dress up their kids so it works for my products  Grin
8  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: do you think this ad is effective? on: September 11, 2008 04:34:03 PM
I'm sorry - I like this new one less than the other one because now all your colors are light and everything just bleeds together. Sorry  Sad
9  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Compiling Stock - Or - is an empty store unappealing? on: September 11, 2008 04:32:08 PM
I don't think there is a problem with a partially stocked store as long as you make it very clear that things take time for you to make -- to appease people you could take pictures of your items as you're working on them. You could also include pictures of items you have sold (just as examples).

I think people generally understand that you're working - as long as you're forthcoming on your website and you have other content, then it won't be an issue. Plus, it's going to take for you to "get your site out there" and that could give you time to work on your products Smiley

Also, if you have friends that also make stuff, maybe they would be interested in listing some of their products on your site? That could give you some filler items  Grin

10  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Craftster etiquette-selling wares initially learned from a tutorial? on: September 11, 2008 04:28:03 PM
I think that we're all reading tutorials and playing around with ideas. If you've made changes to the item, the I don't think it is a problem to sell it. Granted, if you're making the exact same item with no original thought.... well then...   Undecided
