Ebay doesn’t like for you to place advertisments that go off their site.  A few things people have mentioned about this are the following:

Article written as to HOW you can do this legally!

You are allowed one link on your “ABOUT ME” page!  Here is the link to how you can create and manage this PAGE.

Other Items Mentioned for stores:

  • Include your ecrater store URL in every package you send out!
  • PayPal packing slip
  • If you send any invoice to your customers on Ebay make sure you place your website – it may not be clickable, but it is seen!
  • You can do the same thing if you send invoice’s via paypal.
  • Start a blog, and place RSS readers on it.
  • Announce a coupon – lets say take $20 off any order over $200, and mark it on coorespondence.
  • Write a newsletter!
  • Wearables, magnets and business cards promoting your business.
  • Someone wrote that when they return their library books they use their business card for the store as a bookmarker – and forget to remove it!
  • Join forums related to your wear, and place your link to the store, blog or whatever in there.  It helps the rating on how many sites are links to yours for internet searching purposes.  It can help with sales etc as well!
  • Leave your business card with the tip while dining out.
  • Find places and people that offer link exchanges.

These are just a few, and as I come up with more….I will post them!

Below is for people that prefer to do their own artwork.

DIGITAL ART
The highest quality art is VECTOR ART. It is resolution independent . This means that it can be enlarged without affecting the quality of your imprint.

RASTER ART (Placed/continuous tone images)
Raster Art is resolution dependent. When you change the size of an imprint, you change the quality. This means that the resolution (dpi or ppi) of your file is critical. Files must be at least 600dpi. Grayscale and Bitmaps must be 1200 dpi at 100% of final size. Do not submit files w/linked images. Please mebed all graphics.

FONTS
Convert your text into “curves” or “outlines” before e-mailing your art.

TYPESETTING
We can add text to your imprint at no additional charge. We have a variety of popular fonts, just pick your favorite from the list on above. Then send a typewritten version of the text, and specify typeface, point sizes and case.

Artwork Standards
In order to give you the highest quality imprint, we have developed some artwork guidelines, which include minimum line weights. All copy should be 6 points or larger. Lines should be no thinner than .5 pt. We will redraw halftones and screens, filling them in or outlining them, and reset copy when necessary. BIC reserves the right to modify your art if it does not meet these quality standards.

We do have templates, and details instructions also…..just ask!
