My name or Store name
Dec 6th, 2007, 6:37am
 
Is it best to put my own name on the card or my store's name?  Linda Klemanski or Flying Horse Design?

Hi Linda!  Welcome to GCU Smiley  I am not sure that it makes much difference if you go by your name or Flying Horse Designs.  I have to say I like the latter Smiley  It's catchy!  Someone should answer your question soon.  Have a great day and you have a lovely store!  I love the cat painting the dog Smiley

Crockpot Productions is comprised of me and my fiancé, Mike.  So here's what we do.  Since he's the one that draws everything, I include his signature somewhere *in* the artwork.  (I'm the one that does the color, shading, highlights, effects, etc.)  Then I include "Crockpot Productions" somewhere else on the card.  I also have the store name set up using the 'company' name.  That way, he gets the recognition for being the artist AND we get exposure for the company.  This is particularly useful since we have shops on other POD sites, too.
 
So... in sum, you could include your signature in your artwork somewhere but have the store name be your 'company' name.
 
Hope this helps!   Smiley

It's up to you!  I'd just advise that you pick one way and be consistent.
 
Early next year we hope to offer an "about the artist" blurb for the back of the card.  That would be a place where you can tell more about the artist(s) behind the storename.  Just something to keep in mind.

So glad an "about the artist" section is in the works for next year!

Hi Mindy...and all...
 
that is a great idea....a blurb about the artist...one of my clients mentioned the fact that it would be nice to see something about the artist on the back ...so this would be great!!!  
 
Thanks for always making things better...
 
Cheers,
Diana
