Are you looking for artwork that isn’t framed? Perhaps a wood print or you already have a frame but need a print? Well, that’s where our new Etsy shop Nature Photo Gift Pro comes in!
To be super honest, while a stand-alone store under AMSW Photography is wonderful and amazing, Etsy does make adding product crazy easy. Cause what no one EVER tells you is having an online store is a serious amount of work. Adding the product is a
full time job. All the image resizing, living in Photoshop, etc. But it is a labor of love and passion, and I digress. So, anywho, one day after hours of product creation and burnout, I decided to simplify. And maybe others wanted a simpler, frame-less product line (not that I don’t love our framed artwork). So, I introduced Nature Photo Gift Pro Etsy Shop to the world!
The Nature Photo Gift Pro shop specializes in matboard prints. Instead of a skinny print, all prints are 3/8″ thick and can be propped up on a shelf. For those moments when yes, hello, you can (and probably should) frame this gorgeous print but you had to have it right now, and prop it up on the shelf.
Which might begin the discussion of framed art vs. a matboard propped up on the table. Which is better? I will have that article at a later date. Perhaps in my new newsletter that you can sign up for and read (I’m a cheeky little devil, I know).
So many artwork options, so little time. And money. I created this line with the thought of the most expensive piece being no more than $400, while the median price hovered around $100-200. Products range from matboard prints to wood pallet prints, to hanging canvases. The amount of creativity I am feeling with Nature Photo Gift Pro is beginning to take off. My goal is to make the shop as it sounds- that I AM the Nature Photography Gift Professional- and that means having photo gifts. Photo gifts that aren’t cheap, but well made professional art quality. Such as my wooden heart magnets and hanging canvases. I have in mind to bring in nice pillows, gift cards and photo
The turnaround time on our matboard prints is wonderful-2-3 days in the lab and then 2-3 business days to ship. The turnaround time on all items wood or canvas is a bit longer-3-5 days in the lab and 5-7 business days to ship. After researching a few wood printers, I have found that this time period is an industry standard, so I chose vendors of quality. The pieces I’ve ordered are light, crazy easy to hang, and are lovely. The wood grain truly shows through at the lighter parts of the photo. Keyhole cutouts on the back of the print make it easy to slide over any nail to hang. I honestly can’t get enough of the wood prints!
To save the buyer shipping costs, all items are dropped shipped directly to you, the customer, from the printer. This means that they have packaging to perfection from the printer themselves and that SHIPPING IS FREE. Store-wide. I pass along that shipper savings to you. Cause I’m cool like that. After the item is shipped, a fancy Certificate of Purchase and a lovely thank you card are sent from me, so your artwork is legit and has value.
What does all this mean for this framed artwork store? What’s going to happen to AMSW Photography The Shop? Well, praises
For now, if you see a print that you want to be framed, or a framed print that you would rather have a matboard print of, message me! I am oh so happy to work with you and create a custom order. Until then, visit the new Etsy shop and say hello!
Thank You so very much for hanging out and reading!
