Some New Products in our Society6 shop

We have three POD or Print on Demand shops online. For those of you who’ve never heard of POD, it’s basically taking the technology of printing into the 21st Century. It used to be that if you wanted to create a print of a painting for instance, you had to, for cost effectiveness, get it printed in the 100’s or 1000’s and then hope you could sell them. But today, with printing technology it’s possible to just print one at a time and even better, just as it’s ordered. Hence Print On Demand or POD. Very cool. We have POD shops on Society 6, Zazzle and Red Bubble.

It’s something that has been kind of fun and interesting for us. Fun in that you can take a design, artwork, mosaic, photo or collage, and apply it to all sorts of “products”. And there really are ALL sorts! You start with the usual things like art prints, and posters to really fun things that you didn’t really think of seeing your artwork on….like shower curtains, pillows and curtains and even lampshades and runners! BTW just click on the photos to go to the Society6 Summerhouseart shop

And you never know just what these companies are going to come up with next to showcase design and art … like these credenzas

The credenzas have a shelf inside, have a choice of wood, a choice of legs and come flat packed for shipping.

Paper Collage Using Double Sided Adhesive

Collage on Studio table, Helen Bushell, Summerhouse Art

A while ago, in another post on collage, I said that artists aren’t hoarders, we’re just collectors with a plan. Not all the paper that comes into our home leaves by way of the paper recycling bag. Paper is, after all, for collage artists, a valuable resource. So I use old envelopes to create paint patterns on and even save envelopes with that lovely security pattern on the inside, as a rather tasty texture to use in collage. Anything out of the printer is saved as well for its textural value. Continue reading “Paper Collage Using Double Sided Adhesive”
