10 Step Process

Here is the process of buying and receiving a custom graphic from Angela Morgan Designs. We’ll use a custom banner as an example.

1. Choose the listing that best suits your needs and add it to your cart.
2. Follow through with the purchase by sending payment via PayPal immediately or via RME by sending me a convo.
3. Send any helpful information about your graphic needs via convo or email. Including color preferences, styles, shop name, tag line, font choices, etc. The more information you send, the smoother the process will go.
4. Within 48 business hours you will hear from me and be able to see a design I have come up with based on the information you have provided. I will send the designs to you via etsy convo or email. Communication is key!
5. Tell me what you like or dislike about the banner I have provided. What changes would you want made? This is now a very back and forth process. You will need to be available to answer convos/emails.
6. Changes will be made according to the feedback I receive from you. At this point I will continue to work on your design until you are satisfied. (Again, communication is so important on these steps!)
7. Once you have agreed to the final design I will ask for your email address and the process is nearly finished!
8. I will email the finished design to you in your desired file format.
9. Save the image to your computer. Then upload it to etsy.
10. Leave feedback.

Something to Brag About

Yes, I have something to brag about.  It’s mine, I’ve earned it, so why not brag about it?  I’m talking about my 100% positive feedback rating on etsy.

Let me help

All etsy sellers are definitely into the DIY thing.  We like to do everything ourselves because that’s who we are, it’s what we do.  We try to make everything ourselves and often times end up feeling frustrated and overwhelmed.  There comes a time when you just need to step back, observe what’s going on, and realize that you in fact, can not do everything yourself.  Many sellers find themselves feeling all tangled up when it comes to designing a graphic for their shop, that’s where I come in.  Why get your panties in a bunch? Let me help!  It’s what I do, let me design your perfect graphic so you can get back to doing what you do best! Come visit my shop today, take a look around, get a sense for my style. 

My Computer Has PMS!

Dude! I don’t know what is going on. All of a sudden I have IE6 opening up whenever it wants to and showing me all sorts of travel websites and search engine websites. Umm, if I wanted to know I would go to those sites myself. Hello!!! Alas, my computer is not listening to me. I am in the process of downloading some ad aware program thinking I may have inadvertently downloaded some sort of ad or spy program.

That’s not all, this little beauty has been touchy all weekend. Yesterday was very hit or miss. I could click a website and BOOM, there it was, try the next and it wouldn’t load. This went on all day and night. I unhooked routers, and cable modems, and telephone lines, I restarted, did a system restore, you name it. Now I’m figuring it was indeed the cable connection as I am having no connection problems so far this morning.

I’ll be trying to force feed my lovely computer some Midol for the duration of the morning… Cross your fingers for me.

Help is on the way! (Etsy style)

“Help is on the way!” (What movie was it that Robin Williams said this in? Mrs. Doubtfire? I think it was…)

That was my reply to a recent order. They buyer said this in my sale details:

“I love your sense of humor in the forums! I am a fabulous knitter, but totally stink at graphics, pics, marketing. Help!!”

What? I’m funny? No way, not me! Well guess what homegirl! I’m a totally fantastic (and humorous) graphics designer but I STINK at knitting! I can’t wait to get started on her banner and avatar for her etsy shop.

I’ve been spending a great deal of time in the etsy forums. A great place really. You can find answers to all if not most of your questions. People are so very ready to add their two cents help out. Most of all, I absolutely LOVE being a part of such a caring community. I have seen on several occasions, etsy sellers, and buyers, pulling together and working problems out for each other. Becoming detectives and tackling a problem. Like momma lions protecting their cubs when in danger. Here is an example: http://www.etsy.com/forums_thread.php?thread_id=5514343

One little statement turned into 545 posts. Our fellow “etsians” were in need, and we all answered the call. It warms the heart. If you use etsy, and have never stepped foot into the forums, now is a good time to come on in and take a look around. If you have toyed with the idea of joining etsy and haven’t taken that leap – JUMP! And finally, if you are looking for some totally awesome handmade and usually one of a kind items with tons of heart and soul poured into them, well, etsy is your kind of place. I hope to see you there!
