threadless artist shop

Hello and welcome to the latest of my bimonthly updates about my business! In the past month, I have been feverishly working to add inventory to five separate outlets. There is, of course, Etsy, as there has always been. I have also been stockpiling reclaimed wood signs for my local markets, Rustique, Lost & Found Vintiques and my very first craft fair at Alvin’s Frontier Days.

And, most recently, my Artist Shop through Threadless has officially opened! Threadless is one of my favorite t-shirt sites. They boast funny, unique t-shirts, designed and submitted by regular, awesome artists. In a break from their traditional print-by-vote paradigm, they’ll print whatever I upload into my own shop. Hooray! Right now, it’s just t-shirts, but there is talk of tote bags, prints and phone cases coming soon! So, I get to do the fun part (the designing) and they handle the fulfillment, shipping and customer service. Win-frikin-win.

threadless submission

Hey, friends!

Soon, I will be opening up my Artist Shop at threadless.com. I am looking forward to being able to list my designs for sale on screen-printed tee shirts and totes as well as mugs and phone cases!

Before that opens up though, designers can submit artwork to be printed at the parent threadless online store. Please head to this link to score my design. The higher score I get in 10 days, the more likely I am to be printed. THANKS!

Hi, everyone! We’re in the last few days of the year, and, much like everyone else, I plan to make some personal and business improvements in 2016.

In addition to the cliche work out more, manage time better, save up money, blah blah blah adulting, I have some work-related things going on. First of all, I am converting all my Etsy listings to digital downloads. From now on, when you order artwork from me through Etsy, it will become available for you to save onto your computer and have printed through an online printing service like Shutterfly, Tiny Prints or an in person photo service like Costco or Walgreens. Wherever possible, select the heaviest paper in a matte finish. The print shouldn’t cost more than $3-4 for an 8×10, or less if you have a store coupon!

The reasons behind this shift are threefold.

  1. My husband doesn’t have to go to the printer’s for me. He works in the same building, so I ask him to pick up orders for me once or twice per week. He doesn’t like doing it. Boo-frickin-hoo.
  2. I hate the post office. Shipping is far more expensive than it should be (although even paying more doesn’t guarantee it won’t get lost), and often, I forget to go until the very last minute.
  3. It’s cheaper, faster and easier for everyone involved.

Soon after the new year, I’ll be rolling out a new venture with Threadless Artists Shops. You will be able to order my ready made designs as prints, t-shirts, totes, phone cases, et cetera, but Threadless handles order fulfillment. I am ALWAYS available to collaborate with you on custom orders. There will just be one more way to get a fun design you love on a product you will use! Yay!

Anyway, that’s enough for now. Hope your season has been merry as feck, and that you are looking forward to a new year as much as I am!
