Do you have a whole folder of brilliant designs just sitting on your desktop? C’mon. I know you do. You’re not fooling anyone!
Well, guess what?
My husband and I are in the process of launching an online shirt company, 7 Day Apparel!
The idea of the company is to sell shirts with designs on them from independent designers. I have raved on here before about how much I am inspired by the art I see all over the internet, whether it be inspired by books, movies, what have you. You are all incredibly talented, and we want to be able to give you another platform to show your work! And make a little money while you’re at it! When we decide to use one of your designs, you will get $1 from every shirt sold.
Here’s the twist: each shirt design will only be available for a week- but it will be the only design for sale during that time.
This does two things:
1. It gives the artist time to market their designs to their followers via social media or whatever means works for them and have a week of competition free sales.
2. Having the designs available for only a week allows us to stock more efficiently. If we have a ballpark number of how many shirts need to get sent out, that cuts out the overhead of keeping a hefty stock of all designs. Less overhead = lower cost to the customer.
Guess what? I’m not a graphic designer. Nope. Not even a little bit. So we need you! ALL OF YOU!
All you have to do is submit your designs to:
Easy! And don’t worry, when we decide to use one of your beautiful designs we will notify you a few weeks in advance so that you have time to let everyone know when they can go order your design!
We look forward to seeing your beautiful art, and spreading it around the world!
If you aren’t a designer, but know someone who is, spread the word! Re-blog and re-post whenever and wherever you like 🙂
