I would like to update you about my first two Etsy sales! I sold 2 artworks. One of Camilla from Fire Emblem and the second of Edea Lee from Bravely Default.
Here is a preview of the packaging. I made special watercolor sketches for those orders as a thank you note for my first customers. I’m very satisfied with printing service I choose. The paper and printing quality is nice.
I must admit that I didn’t make any profit from those sales. For now, what I get is the satisfaction of having people liking and willing to get my art. I hope I can sell more and eventually be able to save on the production cost.
Making and packaging my prints was definitely very enjoyable.
The only thing that I noticed put me down was the shipping cost. I didn’t expect spending that much on it. There is an additional charge when you decide to add thickness to your package. For my next sales, I have to adjust my packaging to minimize shipping cost.
Briefly, I work on reducing the cost without reducing the quality.
I would like to include some character pins to my shop. I got the material, but I now need to make some tests to make it a product.

If you have any character proposition for me to produce, please let me know:)
I’m also open for paid commissions! Do you want me to draw you a character?;)
