BUSINESS of ART: Turning Art into Cards & Cash with Ray Pfortner
Thursday, April 26th, 2012
Making greeting cards from you art is one of the best ways to enter the marketplace, with little risk, little expense and potentially great rewards. But how do you price your cards? Where can you sell them – and how? Discuss how to manufacture cards for sale, from selecting art to materials, emphasizing how to maximize your profit. But focus on how to turn those cards into cash – through direct sales, selling partners/reps, and licensing your art to commercial card companies. After this workshop you will never look at a greeting card, including your own, the same way again. For all visual artists working in all media, from painting to pottery. Bring 5 samples of your art suitable for a card – or already made into cards – to share for personalized coaching.
