    hi marciofs:

    i have intermittent luck selling prints on ebay.
    others have had "a following" there so they kept
    selling to the same 4 or 5 people over and over again.

    i also know of people who have had better luck selling on etsy ...
    but for very little $$

    i have had better luck ... selling on imagekind.com ...
    but they do all the printing framing &c ... it is sort of a give and take

    i make the prototype image and they do the other stuff i can't talk about here on apug ..
    ask me how ..

    Try etsy.com.
    Wonderful community of people who mostly make what they sell.
    I have had good results there.

    ebay is not the platform for selling prints, it is akin to a car boot sale.

    “The contemplation of things as they are, without error or confusion, without substitution or imposture, is in itself a nobler thing than a whole harvest of invention”

    thanks for the kind words pdeeh ..
    yeah imagekind is OK in my book

    hi rich

    seems the article suggests that people who sold things on etsy were selling things that
    weren't really home made. ( like color prints from a lab? or digital prints from an ink printer?
    or something they bought and then decorated ? )

    not sure how their new guidelines will anger people other than have them "fess-up?" if
    something isn't made by them?

    seems to remind me of made in america stickers ontop of made in mexico stickers at wally's ...

    john
    ask me how ..

    I haven't had any luck, but have only tried twice. I have seen my work offered by other people, though. There is actually one going on now. It's a framed poster, from over 20 years ago. Way overpriced... New, it went for about $100 in that frame. Don't buy it , but here's the link, for those interested. I repeat, don't buy it... There are still galleries/frame shops selling it for about $100...
