Ecrater is free (and where I started so all my stuff is there) while Etsy costs 59 cents for each $5.40 patch I sell. For now, I can absorb the 59 cents that etsy charges, but if my balance of sale shifts too much to etsy, I will have to raise the price to cover the cost of etsy. I have etsy because I was asked to create one for some one that prefers etsy.
Tomorrow is a sad day. USPS will increase the postage rate by a large amount for the package size I usually use. Last year the increase was a few cents, so I wasn’t too worried. However, I just printed a label for tomorrow and the price increase was from $1.64 to $1.93 per package. 30 cents is a ton, I need to figure out how to reduce my shipping cost because I don’t want to raise the cost of shipping by 30 cents, that’s a lot. Thanks USPS. Ugh.
can i use your free downloadable design to embroider on things i sell?
All the embroidery designs on my blog are free for download, and can be used for making your own embroidered stuff for your own personal use. You may not sell anything that you make with the designs downloaded from the blog. That may change in the future once the equipment and software I had to buy is paid for.
If you want to put them on something I don’t have in the store and sell it, please send me an email and we can probably figure something out because my goal has always been to make sure everypony could get all the stuff they wanted.
I found out that my orders for thread and bobbins for the last year make up 4.3% of the total orders that the thread company got within the year. In related news, I accidentally ordered way too much thread. Picture also related.
I get a lot of requests for helping make plushies and such. I am thinking about making precut and embroidered sets of fleece or Minky for MLP characters where all you need to do was sew it together and put stuffing in it. All colors would be included (such as all 7 for Rainbow Dash) and precut to fit a pattern.
I’m guessing cost would be around $30 for any character in MLP at 10” tall or so with embroidered eyes and cutie marks on fleece. I could only afford it if I made a TON. Would you buy one?
