    Hi Everyone,

    Our most recent podcast episode dropped this week, if you haven't had a chance to listen to it, feel free to click here to listen/ to see the links. Also, please share any tips or tricks that you've found or questions that you have about online shops here in this thread! These threads are great places to discuss the topic with our forum community!

    One of the wonderful parts of being an artist is that you can establish multiple streams of revenue, and an online shop can be one of those streams. In this episode we discuss different avenues and mindsets for making an online shop, tips for getting started, shipping, outsourcing, and much much more!

    Have a great weekend!

    Love the carrot symbol on the computer Jake Crow-clever!

  • Great topic guys! Love the art for the episode as well, very clever. Shop question, I notice a lot of people ship their prints flat with a do not bend sticker. My prints run 11x17 it bad form to ship in poster tubes? Do you get a lot of complaints about bending/creasing?

  • @K-Flagg it's actually less chance of damage rolling the print and putting it in a tube. Also much cheaper for international shipping.

  • Oh wow, it's like you guys read my mind--on my to-do list this week was figuring out how to set up an online shop. Thanks for this!

  • Hey guys, great episode! This question is for Lee White, I’m trying to figure out which Epson paper you are using for your prints. I thought it was the Epson Radiant White Watercolor paper, but I can’t find it in the podcast. I have an Epson Stylus Photo R2000 and I love the quality of the prints on the Epson Luster paper. I’d like to try a different paper for more of an art print quality. Could you tell me which paper you use and why? Thanks! Christine
