IMPORTANT NOTICE RE: COVID-19
As of March 27, 2020 The GameCrafter (supplier of the Tarot of Sister Who and Sister Flirt’s Prayer Tin) is closed. Their automated system is processing orders placed during this time to be printed once production resumes. At this time GearBubble, Fine Art America/Pixels, Blurb and Amazon Publishing are able to fulfill orders.
My photography, digital design, and poetry are now available from the following Authorized Production Partners.
I am in the process of revising individual design posts on here to reflect our 2020 authorized Production Partners. For our photography and graphic designs, merchandise other than books or prints are available only from Pixels and GearBubble.
FineArtAmerica and Pixels
Fine Art Prints
Selected Photography and Digital Design images are available on canvas, acrylic, wood, metal and fine art papers (framing and matting available) from my FAA Galleries. The Special Editions Collection features unique images, offered in select sizes, some for limited times only- many raising funds for specific causes and issues.
Selected images from my FAA catalog are also available on cards, notebooks, pillows and totebags at their Pixels.com site.
GearBubble merchandise ranges from mugs to blankets to jewelry. The examples I’ve ordered are quite good. Their pricing is a bit lower than the other POD-sites; with a slightly slower delivery and smaller selection of products, styles, and sizes. The bulk of my designs on products produced by GearBubble are available to order through TheDigitalGryphon.com site- running on the Shopify platform.
That platform has many great features but is not able to handle GearBubble’s 400+ combinations of apparel style (tee, tank, hoodie, etc), shirt colour (up to nine), and shirt size (up to 5XL for select styles) per design. The complete Digital Gryphon apparel offering is available at the Digital Gryphon Shirt Shop.
Although Official R&P apparel and merchandise are available at the above 2 shops, they are also still available at Romanovsky & Phillips at GearBubble.
Established to offer board games via Print-On-Demand technology, TGC has embraced the Tarot & Oracle Cards category. I worked with Sister Who to prepare production files for the Tarot of Sister Who as Jumbo 3.5″x5.5″ cards. Then a select range of those cards were converted to standard Tarot 2.75″x4.75″ cards at the same site.
Earlier this year TGC started offering printable custom ‘mint tin’ game containers. And then I saw pictures of a portable altar a friend created with a used commercial mint tin and the idea of Sister Flirt’s Meditation Tin & Portable Altar was born.
Printed Books, eBooks
Photography, digital design, and poetic prose is available in books (paperback and hard cover) printed on demand. My poetry chapbook and collected blog posts are also available as eBooks. See My Books page for the latest information.
# The bulk of the purchase price, plus any Shipping Charges, go to the Production Partner(s) for processing your order and delivering a high quality item made-to-order just for you;
# Pricing and Product Selection varies by Production Partner, are beyond my control, and are subject to change without notice.
There are any number of other Print-On-Demand websites that offer books, apparel, art prints. mugs or other products. Some I just don’t know about, some I’ve investigated but decided against using, and a few I no longer use. I am open to checking out new sites, but find very few that offer me, or you, enough benefit to justify the work required to set up and maintain a strong presence at their site.
The following are the main sites that I no longer use. There were others that either were used for only a few months, or did not even pass on a test order.
TeeSpring has a good selection of products and an international network of production facilities. They lack in both Customer and Designer support. I closed all my shops there as of April 2019.
Lulu has been my Production Partner for Wall Calendars for awhile. That is not a growth category, and no longer justifies the time and energy required. They also offer books, although I use other partners for mine. I would recommend them for calendars.
CafePress was my first Print-On-Demand partner. They were once a leader, but are not able to adequately support designers. The company has been acquired by a retail-focused company. All my shops there were closed before the end of 2018.
Spoonflower offers Print On Demand fabric, wallpaper and premium gift wrap. I loved all the sample pieces I ordered from them, but my work has not found buyers there and I’m not able to revise my work to fit, so I closed my account in Sept. 2018. I would recommend them to designers whose work is suited to their process.
PrintFection no longer offers POD services to designers or artists. It is now a fulfillment house for marketing departments and others offering shirts as rewards or premiums. I did like them when they offered shops for designers.
My account, and those of many other designers, at Skreened were deleted without notice. It apparently has been acquired by another company. It is not known if our intellectual property has been deleted, and there are reports of many unpaid balances.
I closed my account at Australian-based RedBubble over their refusal to enforce their ‘community standards’ or remove content so offensive that even I could no longer support them.
My decision to remove all my designs from Zazzle in 2013 was a response to extreme changes in procedures that confirmed my existing concerns over their treatment of designers and artists.
