Last summer around this time I had a small yard sale. This year I’ve decided to have a Flash Sale in my Etsy Shop to find my prints some new homes. I’ve reduced the prices for the prints to $12.00 (the price of a Dr. Sketchy session) and will include one of my new rounded edge cards in the order, along with some bonus stickers. I will also add some free stickers in with every sticker order. If you are interested in any of the prints in different sizes please contact me and I can have them printed on demand.
I would love to have some feedback on my shop also. How can I make it better? Does anyone have any helpful hints on selling through Etsy?
My round edge Moo cards that will be included in the order (pick your fave!)
These round Moo stickers will be included in print order – they are about the size of a poker chip.
I am very excited about the new stickers I ordered from Moo! I have put them in my Etsy shop and I am having a mini contest to give one set away. To enter please leave a comment on my blog here with a suggestion for a subject for one of my Inkpad portraits. I am looking for retro, kooky, kitchy or glam actresses, actors, musicians, artists or anyone you find visually interesting. I will pick a winner at random on Friday night. Good luck!
I’m really excited about the new Moo stickers and mini cards I just received in the mail this week! I’m trying out an assortment of my Inkpad images on the stickers and cards because I think my more graphic artwork works better on promotional materials. One of the things I like about Moo is that you can upload images from Flickr so you can constantly update your business cards as your portfolio changes. I also made a sticker of my self portrait with the QR code, and I was uncertain whether a smaller QR code would still work, but it does work! I will have lots of cards to give out at the upcoming Apple Store Event this Saturday and the Mobile Arts Conference at the end of the month.
I also will be putting new stickers in my Etsy store and will also include bonus stickers with all print orders, so stop by and take a look.

My Self Portrait With QR code and the back of my mini cards
My portrait of Qavit for Julia Kay’s Portrait Party on Flickr is also my 165th portrait done so far. In this portrait I was experimenting with the “pastel” brush with the pressure set to high. I like using the pastel brush with the canvas texture because you get a nice scumbling effect.
This was a very productive week for me art wise because I worked a lot with Inkpad trying to learn some new techniques. I also joined both Etsy and Tumblr which were both easier to set up than I first thought. Please visit me at both sites to give me your input and if you are on Tumblr please follow me.
Over the weekend I opened my Etsy Shop “Rita Flores Art“. I had been thinking about it for quite a while and decided to stop procrastinating and just do it. I had six prints made at Blick Art Supply using their professional grade Epson printer and printed on Rives 210 Archival Artist Paper. I really like the way their prints come out because the colors are vibrant and true to my original artwork. I am “test marketing” several of my Inkpad images to see which ones will sell. I also put some of my stickers in the shop and just ordered some new ones so I will have a bigger variety soon.
Please stop by my shop and give me any feedback you can. I still have a lot of tweaking to do on the descriptions and I still need to make a banner for the shop. The first 6 print orders will receive some free stickers in their order as a special thank you!
Also, if you are interested in any images that are on my Flickr stream or this blog please contact me and I can have them printed in (almost) any size to order.
