New T-shirt Design for Beaders
Printful & the world of print on demand
A couple of months ago, I was doing some beadwork, and an idea popped into my head. I had to write it down. I liked the sound of it so much that I worked on a simple sketch. That sketch was then transformed into my first real t-shirt design! And today, I am excited to announce that my ‘Beading Mind & Soul’ t-shirts are now available for sale on Etsy! They are available in 3 different styles: Women’s Relaxed, Fitted, and Unisex.
To me, the phrase ‘Beading Mind & Soul’ really embodies what the craft of beadwork, is all about. Those of us who do beadwork feel that it is a kind of meditation, and that it heals the soul. It is a practice that is deeply rooted in our very being and those who are close to us know this very well. So, if you are into jewelry-making, bead embroidery, beadweaving, or creating lampwork beads, this shirt is the perfect way to show that beads are an important part of who you are - beading, mind & soul. Please note that with this design, I am entering the world of print-on-demand, so there may or may not be processing/ shipping delays due to COVID. Please let me know what you think of the design!
As far as print-on-demand goes, it has its pros & cons, but overall I think it’s great that Etsy sellers are now able take advantage of the Printful shop integration. If you have any experience or advice in this arena, please comment. I have lots of ideas, so I will definitely be experimenting with this. I have also listed a Great Blue Heron iPhone case and a fun print of my beaded Vegan Burger art! Keep an eye out for more prints and fun merchandise.
In between all of that and beading several Amazon orders, I have managed to list a new brown beaded Poodle pin on Etsy. I used several shades of Topaz seed beads for this one. How do you like it? This item is ready to ship, and I imagine it won’t be available for long…
That’s the news for now. Stay home and stay safe… Or go for a hike! ;)
