I am debating possibly expanding. No not my waistline, although that seems to be happening all by itself… But that’s another thing. After a facebook conversation and some thought, I wonder if you might be interested in some of my images as prints. I’m thinking around A4, or similar in size, with a card mount. … Continue reading Would you buy prints?
When working with images, photographs, any visual art, the most obvious saleable products are probably canvases and greeting cards, posters, or framed prints. I’ve had some small canvases available for sale in my favourite beach restaurant for a while now. They attract comments and people seem to like them. But without any indication they might … Continue reading Canvases and Greeting Cards
Today’s task is to improve the overall search-ability for the website. It’s a behind the scenes thing that helps Google, and others to find your website more easily. So, today I will be working on SEO, focusing on the products in the shop. I use Yoast – SEO plugin for wordpress, the free version. You … Continue reading Working on SEO
Over this weekend I have been preparing images for some new greeting card designs. I made sure to include some previous designs that were popular, and sold out, too. It wasn’t easy to choose the images. But they are with the printer and I now wait for the cards to arrive. When they do I’ll … Continue reading New Greeting Card Designs
I declare the Sarah Barnard shop open for business! The shop is now open again, and linked to the lower of the top menus. I decided to reactivate the shop, and have the greeting cards back on for sale. They sold reasonably well when they were available before, so it makes sense. All the images … Continue reading The Shop is Open
I know, I said I wouldn’t be reactivating the shop, but the software is all set up. I’ve adjusted the stock to reflect what I actually have here. So I’m reconsidering the shop. There are books available, and some greeting cards. I have more images to use, and I’ve had some images printed onto blocked … Continue reading Reconsidering the shop
Fitting this in around other stuff going on isn’t always easy, and I am aware that sometimes the website suffers as a result. But I hope there are still a few of you who wander in to see what I’m up to from time to time. This week I have been sorting, packaging, cataloguing, and … Continue reading All new greeting cards
A lovely box of new card designs arrived this morning, and I’ll be adding them to the shop in the next few days. Bear in mind I’ve been adjusting the postage rates, so orders with a small number of cards should work out as free postage. If it doesn’t please let me know and I’ll … Continue reading New cards just arrived!
Well, that’s that for another year. The final assignment is handed in and there’s no more editing, nothing more to be done. It’s either good enough, or it isn’t. (this is the moment when I suddenly realise I should have said something in the report, or could have said things better… It’s always the way … Continue reading All done, for this year.
I love this photograph of my cat, which is why I decided to include it in the initial range of greetings cards. I was adjusting and testing some settings on the camera, and she wanted to get in on the action. I did manage to narrowly avoid having her nose print on the lens! But … Continue reading Reflection in a Cat’s eye
