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. You could put the print in a frame of your own choice, or not – it’s up to you.
Would you put my pictures on your wall?
I’m looking into products I can offer for sale that are reasonable to post. There’s no actual shop you can go into and pick one up off a shelf. It’s all online, and there’s only me here. This is a small hobby business at the moment, so there’s no team of people looking after dispatch, orders, customer service, marketing. It’s just me.
Taking into consideration that there’s also not much storage space in my house until the kids leave home – and I’m not kicking them out any time soon! Any product has to be reasonably small, easy to store, and lightweight enough to be posted from my local village post office, which is tiny.
Greetings cards were the obvious first choice. The canvases I’ve had made are fine for local venues, and possibly future craft fair events. But canvases are bulkier and more difficult for me to post. Once I factor in the cost of packaging materials, boxes, and postage, it’s not really something I want to venture into right now.
But a print, in a card mount, in a card backed envelope? I can do that. Those wouldn’t take up too much space, and would be reasonable to post too.
So, I am planning a small range of prints to be available in time for Christmas. Do you have any preferences? Are there any images in the galleries that you love?
Let me know and I can consider either including an image as a commission for you, or put the most popular images in the first selection.
