Is it a textured paper you need? Rymans do a paper with a canvas type texture called 'laid paper' ... you could ask for a sample before forking out for a whole pack. A friend of mine tried it, it doesnt work on a laser printer but seems ok on my deskjetThanks for that Rich! I finally managed to sort it all out to only find that my printer won't take the archival paper

Welcome to my life lol
Anyone know of any reputable companies I could get 5-10 prints of my art done? I think I am going to test waters and see if I can sell 5-10 before I proceed with printers and what not haha.
My printer won't take the card and the printer at my work is a laser!
What kind of finish are you after? Matte? Gloss?
I used to print at Tesco at the start. It was about £6 for a glossy print.
If you wanted matte… I could do them for you
I actually did buy a pack of matte epson paper so would be interested in your offer? Shall I pm you?
Do you know if companies like vistaprint or printify etc offer like a bundle deal? Perhaps like 10 prints for a discounted price?
Thanks mate ill take a lookHey,
I can’t really post the link mate because if people click on it and don’t buy anything it has an impact on search rankings But if you Google “Etsy number6UK” it will come up.
I definitely don’t think it’s just a Covid thing. I think you just have to make good pictures that people will buy. I think I give good custom service too - and I get lots of people buying again.
Is there money to be made as we are now heading into Summertime?
If you created prints around families having holidays etc, is there much season market for that?
As long as you are having that steady trickle of orders coming in that's the important thing so you at least have something to build off!It’s not something I’ve seen anyone doing to be fair so I’m not sure. It has been quiet lately but then today I’ve had 5 orders (£50) so far. Hopefully get a couple more later.
@rich110991 Ive just been looking into doing this again as Ive finally got a (very basic) grip of software. I was thinking of going on ebay as I think it has a bigger audience and Im quite familair with it. Fees work out about £! per sale. But the prices for simialr produicts are so low on there - havent really looked into etsy so much but from what i can see
1 - listing and fvf fee about a quid
2 - postage about £1.50 large letter
3 hard backed envelope, about £1.20 from the post office
4 cost of materials and ink - no idea, lets say 50p on a deskjet
Do these costs seem about right to you? A lot of the items are similar to your welly prints as well as those time-consuming family with a million hairstyles to choose from ones and theyre listed at £4.79 with free postage.
