That stands for Print On Demand. If you're an artist there's so many fun ways to get your work out on cool, useful items. If you like shopping on-line and showing off to your friends then look no further than this blog because I'm about to tell you how you can support local artists and buy funky wares you can show off to your friends! My entry into the world of print was cards, of course. I had a brand spanking new HP Pavillion 1.0 3gb quantum fireball 60mb ram and a dinosaur edition HP (insert angels singing) lazerjet printer. Before that I would make humble little pen drawings and photocopy them onto the best paper Jiffy Print had in stock. I spent many agonizing hours setting up templates and laying out my scanned works. It was as frustrating as it was gratifying. Up to today I have used every possible option to print cards and to wrap them up beautifully as well.
www.clearbagscanada.ca is one of my suppliers for card stock, envelopes and of course clear bags. I credit printed cards to be a bread and butter item for over 20 years especially when I was doing craft shows.The price of ink for my current Canon beast is ridiculous so when I'm able to afford to buy supplies I'll be, again, building art cards into my list of products. In future posts I'll be getting detailed about the growing options for putting art on 'things' such as fabric, stationary, mugs, device cases and much more than I could begin to list.
