About This Class

bdfe3235

Want someone to give you a straight-forward run-down of what it's like to run an online print shop?

It's pretty simple, right? Then why does it feel so daunting?! Sometimes you just need someone to guide you amidst the many mini-decisions surrounding your online business. Why re-invent the wheel when so many have gone before?

This class is for those who are interested in opening their online shop of original prints as well as for those who have an existing shop and want a refresh. With the collective insights of several shop owners as well as recommendations for further linking, reading, and viewing, you absolutely will find a helpful tip in this thorough--though not exhaustive--class! Also, each video segment ends with a hack or a free download.

A few highlights of what you will learn:

  • Best practices for search performance
  • Foundations for a quality print--resolution, Photoshop polish, materials--nothing is left behind!
  • Step by step guides and inspiration
  • Branding practices
  • Helpful {and free!} online tools for SEO, branding, and marketing
  • A recipe for selecting what to sell
  • Insights from hard-earned experience

...and you'll hopefully gain a sense of community from other budding entrepreneurs while showcasing your shop's progress through your project.  

Oh, and don't miss the supplemental PDF for this class under the Your Project tab. 

Save yourself some time and sidestep a few mistakes by enrolling in this class. 

Especially now... just in time for the holiday season!

I love all of your classes. This one has been the Most currently useful one for me because I do have an Etsy store as well as other online presence. The sections with the HACKS were all very helpful. I'll try out the photo sleeve cellos rather than the current flap closures I'm using. I'll check out the richmombusiness.com link. Thanks for the SEO links in Getting Found. I'm looking into those today as well as giving my little logo a facelift. I've looked into Canva, but not used it. Don't have Photoshop due to upgrading my system. It was too old for 10.11 :( The CC version is a little pricey now so I'm using Gimp which is free editing software. Not great, but o.k. for now. Lastly, thanks so much for the frame photos. There are a lot of free photo sites, but thank you for giving your photos :)

Amarilys Henderson

Watercolor Illustrator, Design Thinker

I process on paper and I problem-solve with keystrokes.

As a commercial illustrator, I've had the pleasure of bringing the dynamic vibrance of colorful watercolor strokes to everyday products. My work is licensed for greeting and Christmas cards, art prints, drawing books, and home decor items. My design background influences much of my recent work, revolving around typography and florals. 

If anything describes me, it's that I'm an explorer. I am interested in how things work, often bouncing from the fine art world to vectors, from paint to textile patterns. I'm forever ignited by new ideas and projects, aiming to master them while enjoying the process.

While my professional work in illustration and wedding stationery are driven by trend, my personal work springs from my faith. Bold beauty and ingenuity are my aim every time.
