1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Re: What printing companies do you use? on: December 12, 2007 04:35:48 PM
I checked it out... it seems like they do a lot of business printing (brochures, business cards) but not any actual quality art prints. Thanks though.
2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / What printing companies do you use? on: December 11, 2007 12:54:30 PM
For awhile I have really been wanting to get some nice-quality art prints made. Does anyone have a company they can recommend? I've searched online a bit but I seem to find companies that either do cheap promotional printing or really really expensive art prints. I know lots of people sell prints of their work on Etsy for reasonable prices. But where are they getting it done?
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / copper-coated leaves on: August 10, 2007 02:34:10 PM
I have seen a lot of people selling jewelry made of real leaves or whirly-birds, etc, somehow coated in metal. Does anyone know how to do this? They are really pretty.
4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Possessed sewing machine! on: March 20, 2007 08:25:41 PM
do you have a buttonhole feature on your machine? On mine there is a little push lever for it. If it's in buttonhole mode it will sew in reverse whether you're pushing the reverse button down or not, and if you're trying to push the fabric through the right way you're going to be making a huge mess of thread.

one more thing... you might try listing some larger lots... since etsy's fee is already going to be 10% of your sale, and if they pay with paypal that's another 20 or 30%. If you offered larger lots in the end it might work out as more of a value for the customer and you'll have less fees to pay.

i totally slacked last month... I wanted to add ten things and instead I didn't add anything. And we're already well into march so I'm gonna go easy on myself:

Add 5 items
Sell 3 items
seriously organize my craft stuff. i've been avoiding making jewelry because I can't find my pliers and don't wanna go buy new ones... they're probably just under something. bleh.

yeah, definitely make sure you're getting paid for your time and effort. Don't worry so much about overpricing... I'd be more worried about underprincing. I mean, the great thing about etsy is that your listing is active for 6 months for an extremely low fee. And if it doesn't sell in 3 months (or whatever your desired turnover time happens to be), lower the price a little every month til the end. I had a friend from an art gallery and he said that when items didn't sell they actually raised the price - giving customers a different perceived value. I know it's a different field but all I'm saying is that there are people who will pay more for the artist touch-they're likely shopping etsy because they prefer to buy things that are made by hand.

thanks. the buttons were in a bin of vintage buttons I found at the thrift store. I've had them for awhile now waiting for a use. And the sewing really isn't that straight... but I put the worst of it in the back so hopefully no one will notice.

I got a bag of karate belts at the thrift store, and I cut the black belt down and made this cute belt for myself. I am extremely new to sewing... my machine was a total bad-mood impulse buy recently, so I've been mainly sewing away without making anything useable. But this turned out decent, though I need something to actually wear it with.
