Online store options?
Hey everybody. I’m setting up an online store for me to sell the prints and books I still have left from AwesomeCon. Is there a site that rises above the others to use? Shopify? Etsy? Bigcartel?
I have a Square and they offer an online store for free. Thoughts? I look forward to your feedback.
Just to let you know, my website is run on wordpress.
RE: First Artist Alley
Hey @jason-kilthau Where is Rose City Con? To be honest, I went back and forth every day on whether I ordered too much or didn't order enough. I only got 100 books and a total of 175 prints (100 8x10 and 75 5x7). I used the local AlphaGraphics and the team there was very nice. I know Jake prints his own stuff, and I want to get to that point. I just didn't want to buy a printer right now. I need an 11x17 size scanner too. Anyway, the prints were done on 100# and that was very nice.
My art was fan art so to speak but it was fan art of artists, not of characters. My Inktober last year was drawing astronauts in the styles of 31 different artists that inspire me, while also following the official prompts. (constraints much?)
First Artist Alley
I did my first Artist Alley this past weekend at AwesomeCon. It was a wonderful experience meeting a bunch of folks and mingling. I got to talk to a few other artists and also spend the weekend with my brother.
I was selling a book from my Inktober work last year, along with some prints. Sales did not go that well. I did find that when I started coloring a few of my prints, more folks started to stop and take a look at what I had.
My neighbor and I discussed how color attracts people to tables, no matter how good the black and white work could be. Hmmm.
