If you missed it on twitter this last weekend, we launched a re-design to our online shop! The BEST part is that we have new functionality where you can order custom products online – calling cards, wedding suites and letterpress ready-made goods! I’m also excited to announce that we are participating in a new post-thanksgiving promotion with a slew of other letterpress printers – it is not Cyber Mnday, but instead Letterpress Tuesday. ENJOY 25% OFF EVERYTHING IN THE SHOP (including custom goods) for 24 hours only, tomorrow TUESDAY 11/29/11. When checking out use code DINGBAT25. Happy Thanksgiving!

So my husband is a fly-fisherman, and they tie all their flies for the upcoming season (close to 100,000 flies) to use on the river, many of which are proprietary fly patterns. It’s pretty amazing!

While I’m no eCommerce web programmer guru, we’ve set up a few shops for ourselves and other indie sellers and are starting to get the hang of things regarding pros and cons. This series will give you a run down between joint hosting with another marketplace provider (Etsy, Storenvy, ArtFire, BigCartel and other smaller online marketplaces) vs. taking the big leap and self-hosting your shop. This post is going to focus on Etsy, since most, if not all of you are familiar with it.
