Meta 0003 - Ko-Fi Shop and Future Stuff
I finally got motivated enough to open up my Ko-Fi shop and make one (1!) mastodon post about it. A week ago. m)
(Marketing your stuff is, like, really hard!)
For now, you can only buy a single product: A random collection of my stickers, for 10€. For that price, you get between 10 and 20 stickers, depending on size, and a wide mix of my various sticker designs and experiements.
If you're interested, you can buy the sticker packs here.
Beyond that one product, which, if I'm being honest, comes mostly from me trying to self-hack my way out of procrastinating this shop thing, I have a bunch of other stuff in the works that should appear in the shop Some Time Soon™.
Remember those things? Collecting (and trading) stickers used to be the Hot Shit when I was a kid and sticker booklets, with their foiled/waxed pages to allow easy removal of stickers, were everywhere. While I'm sure they still exist out there, it's been a while since I've seen them sold somewhere...
My sticker making process leaves me with many sheets of backing paper from the cold laminate I use and, since it has sticky cold laminate on it, it's foiled to allow easy removal of sticky things, just like those sticker booklets! So I tried taking these scrap sheets and bind them into scrap booklets and it worked!
Right now, the plan is to use all the scrap backing paper I collected and make a few sticker albums/booklets, sized appropriately for my sticker sized and with pretty glitchart stickers, and put them in the shop.
I'm not sure what to price them yet. On one hand, the material is literally scap, on the other hand, cutting and hand-binding those is a shitload of work, so ... uuuuuuuuuuugh. Dunno, we'll see.
For now I'm just excited to do something more bookbind-y again. ^^
More sticker collections
At this point, there are a couple of collections I can make that I feel are "shop-ready", ie. that I could see myself charging money for without completely feeling like I'm trying to rip somebody off.
(I doubt the feeling of "Oh no, I tricked somebody into giving me money for my crap, what a fraud and terrible person I am!" will every go away completely, but one can hope, right?)
I think the collection that will appear in the shop first is "Be a glitch...":
Originally designed as my pride march banner and printed in A3, these motives make for great stickers as well. (Very useful for sticking over shitty funi-christian pasteups.)
Showing queer pride and glitch pride at the same time. <3
Olde Glitch Stuff
Beyond the current stuff I make, I also still have a bunch of glitchart/glitchbook stuff I made at the old copyjob and that I never sold, so now I'm (very, very) slowly writing copy for them to eventually put them into the Ko-Fi Shop as well.
Minor Website Updates:
This website has a favicon now. Not terribly happy with it, but I felt that particular combination of "highly motivated" and "terribly uninspired", so... *shrug*
