Prints Anyone?


Hi there.
I need input from all you creative, smart, lovely people out there.  Yes, that means YOU!!

I've been doing some thinking and planning.  I've finally ordered business cards, postcards, and even some greeting cards with some of my art on them.  They were all ordered from Moo.com, an amazing company, and I can't wait to get them and share them with you!!  It's a long needed step towards opening my Etsy shop.

So here's where I need your help.  My next step is ordering art prints of some of my art, so I was wondering if you had any favorites that you might like to see or buy prints of.  NO obligations to buy, of course, I just want your input.  If you go to the top of my blog and click on the link that says "artwork" or just click here, it'll take you to a page with my art, journal pages, and even cards that I've made.  Jot down the ones that you think would make good prints, and let me know in the comments.  I'll be so gratful!

Here's an example of a few I'm thinking of making prints of...

Who would't love a bit or Paris in their home? 
Since I no longer have the original, I think I want one of these prints for myself too!

"The Healing Tree"
I already have an order for an 11" x 14" of this so this ones a definite

 "Bridge of Sighs monoprint"
Love this one!

"Puddles of Inspiration"
I think this might make a fun print for a studio or even kids room, but what do you think?

I really would love your input!  What do you think?  Like any of these for a print?  Or any others?  "Unleashed"?  "Don't Lose Heart"?  I am totally open to any suggestions!  Don't be shy!  And like I said... no obligations, just tell me your favorites, there's no wrong answer here!   And what sizes  8 x 10 or 11 x 14?  Smaller?  5x7?  Too many questions?  ;-)

As a little incentive I'll pick one of you commenters to win a set of postcards or greeting cards (when they come in, lol!)  I'll pick the winner on Monday night, Dec 12th.  

Thank you!

Hi Esther, what a pleasure it is to scroll through your gorgeous art...
I love all the ones you have listed in this post plus...
Branching out
Don't lose heart
Finding beauty
Love tree
Dream with faith...
and thought 'celebrate' and 'loving word' would both make awesome cards...

Have a wonderful week...

I love SOAR for a kids room, Bird Journal collage, Paris, Three Koi, Finding Balance, Do Your Thing and Implied Texture the bestest mostest.

BUT, to be honest, I think they would all look GREAT in print form.

OH! nearly forgot.....love the banner up top. :)

Oh my gosh....It really was so hard to pick! All your work is amazing!

I really loved Do YOUR Thing (Raven)(To me this is a must!lol)
Implied Texture
Don't Lose Heart
Three Koi
And Breathe.

I have found that larger sizes are better sellers for me, but occasionally someone want something smaller, so I guess it's a good idea to offer a variety. Not much help, am I? lol

I'm curious about where you will be getting your prints done...I would like to offer more prints in my Etsy shop too, just not sure how I'm going to go about that just yet!

Hi. Very hard to choose. They are all amazing. So here it goes, Finding Beauty, The Healing Tree, Potential Unleashed, the Love Tree, and Inspired Doodles. I would love cards or 8x10.

Just awesome to see your art on one page, so many beautiful works! It is so hard to choose what should be printed, I have many favorites ;-) Think I will leave that choice totally up to you LOL Moo cards are great, I once ordered there too. My art looked stunning on those cards! Anyway, these should be printed for sure : Lavender and Blossoms, Don't Lose Heart, Finding Beauty (my nr.1)and Celebrate ;-) Have fun making the choices!

be free love tree finding balance plus sour healing treatment...all the others people said....great idea...xxx

Diane said...

They're all good--It doesn't matter--I think what speaks to you will also speak to others. I'm going to investigate Moo.com--I've heard so many goog things about it.

It's all good Esther...very good. I would pick the ones you picked PLUS:

Hidden Depths
Dream with Faith

These are the ones I could picture on a wall in our own home. Best of luck getting great prints made!

WoW! This is so exciting to read!

I'll have to come back when I can browse the art but I am loving the copper piece you did fairly recently. I think you even showed some pics of the process.... I'll be back when I can browse and tell you my faves - if I can, in fact, pick faves. I kind of like them all :)

If I had to pick I would pick Bird Journal Collage, Soar, Serene Wishes, Inspired Doodles (gorgeous), And Breathe, True Colours and Ahh...Paris (love French inspired) and one about the sea (Down to the Sea?).
