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.

Just a few more products on our Society 6 store

We’re really enjoying Print on Demand these days.  Such fun way of getting our artwork out there at affordable prices and good quality too.  We really got excited this week because Society 6 has come up with “all over print T-shirts”.  So now you can have a design all over the T instead of just a little design on the front.  Plus, we thought, may as well try out some leggings too.

We’ve been busy adding more products on our Society 6 store.  I can never get over how a little sketch can take on a whole new personality once you put it on other items….

Take this little sketch I did on a scrap of spreadsheet paper.  Just having fun with pencil crayons and some felt pens.  Looks quite different on a pillow or a T-shirt

And a couple of my paintings, one rather tropical and the other an abstract of our garden take on a whole new look on T’s.

Will took a border from a card I’d done years ago and gave it a whole new spin.  I do like it on leggings…

and here’s how it looks as a T shirt in lilac.  It really looks good as a shower curtain too.  Check it out and many other designs on our shop on Society 6.  We’ll be adding more designs to the new products as we can.

We’re putting our work online!

Will and I have been looking at our artworks in a whole new way lately. As a couple we’ve produced quite a lot of work in the form of paintings, collages, mosaics, drawings and photographs. We’ve been looking online lately and wondering how these artworks would look on other objects. So we’ve started opening online shops on various Print on Demand sites and having some fun seeing how our works look on things like pillows, iPad skins, totes and mugs, etc.  There’s a huge selection.

Here is Helen’s painting of Abstract branches on a pillow

And we think they’re kind of fun! The images shown here are on products in our Summerhouse Art Shop on Society 6. Society 6 has a great reputation as a good quality printer that really gives great customer service and promotes artists too. We hope you’ll have a look, since these and other images are ready to be printed as regular prints, printed canvas, tote bags to even larger items like shower curtains and duvet covers.

As we expand our images and shops, I’ll be updating on the blog so the latest new images are here too.
