|What is the best advice you have received from a fellow shopkeeper about your shops or designs you would like to pass on to another shopkeeper? *|
The first great advice was to learn how to use Quick Create. Without that, I would be lost.
|What PODs do u currently use or have shops on? *|| |
|What did you do with your free time before zazzle or other POD's....and what do you do with it now? *|| |
I was always involved in making art of some kind and selling it in the real world rather than online. Zazzle makes a whole new opportunity to show the art to a wider audience.
When I'm not on the computer, books are my great love - reading them and writing them. I live on the the very tippy-top of a mountain so wildlife is high on my list of things to be involved with - especially the bears that live in this area.
|What programs do you use to make your designs *|| |
|Tell us more about what you like and do not like about each software you use, what makes it special. *|| |
My favourite software is PSP. It was the first one I bought way back when I first got a computer and I have stayed loyal to it for years. I like its interface which is really simple for even a beginner to use.
I also use a very, very old version of PhotoImpact which doesn't even exist any more but I keep hold of it because it has great fonts and a surprising number of actions which you would not necessarily expect from such a simple program. I guess, when the software eventually dies on me, that that will be that and I'll have to find something else to play with.
|Will you make custom orders? *|| |
Yes - prepaid only
|Elaborate on your answer above regarding custom orders... *|| |
As I said, I have always been involved in the art world and been prepared to do custom work but experience has taught me that spending hours on a piece of work which the customer then decides they don't want any more is a tremendous waste of my valuable time. Pre-payments make them consider more carefully before making an order.
