Hello Everybody!
 
Another question that may have been covered previously (but I can't find it  embarrassed)
 
'How do you get to be a featured artist?'
 
Cheers

Not sure if we've covered this in the forum but we've got it in the Artist FAQ.
 
Q27: How can I be a ''featured artist'' on your homepage?  
A27: To be among the artists rotated in our "Featured Artist" spot your store needs to have 15 or more cards.

Thanks for answering Mindy - I'm trying to do new designs for cards, download these cards and learn everything about this site all at once!! Theres just not enough hours in the day! Smiley
 
Glad you like the idea on name specific cards and you've set it up Smiley
 
I'm think of new ways to advertise this site all the time and my latest thought is printing just some small stickers (1.5" X 0.5") which when I buy cards off this site to sent to friends, family, etc I would stick this on the back of the card. Just something like Designed by (name) and then this website. As you can't print this on the back of the cards at the moment this was my next best solution. What do you (anybody) think?
 
Also, what about if I get an order to do some corporate (christmas or invitation)cards for a company - but the card is specific to the company (for example it has their logo/name on the front of the card). Is there any way I could do the card thru GCU and either I order it or they do (bulk order) but its not made availible to anyone else?

Agree - certainly not enough hours in the day  Tongue
 
Sure, you can add your name stickers to the back of your cards.  I can certainly see that if you are ordering in bulk and re-selling.
 
As for special order cards, we've been thinking about an option to set your storefront and/or cards private.  That would allow the cards not to enter the general population.  
 
Anyone else interested in a private card setting?

I wouldn't mind having this as an available option.

A 'private' option would be great!  I wouldn't upload photos at this point to make into cards since everyone can see them--I'd use it!

Hi Cathie,
Of those artists that have 15 or more cards in their store the Featured Artist page is randomly rotated among them every 15 page refreshes/visits.
 
So the actually time featured varies.
