Giveaway time!

Giveaway

I recently worked with super fantastic Meagan Visser on her blog doing a fun giveaway of a premium shop set. I wanted to keep the fun going with another giveaway on my blog! Here are the rules and have fun with it! 

I want to get some of my followers some exposure so here are the rules. In the comments leave your name, shop name and link to your blog. Then next Wednesday I will choose a winner. If you don't have a blog, that's okay too. You can post in the comment box and let me know why you should win!


And without further ado, here is the giveaway! I will be giving away this absolutely gorgeous business card holder. These come in handy because you can stick them in your purse and have them at your ready when you are out and about. I love these because if I am out shopping and see a bulletin board I can just reach in, get my card and post it up!

Cute Birdy Card Holder!
Did you think that was all I was giving away? Wrong! I am also going to give away a business card design of your choice(visit www.sararubendall.etsy.com to view the designs). You will be responsible for having them printed but if you use vistaprint.com it will be a breeze. Simply upload the design I send you(I will put your information on it) and voila, you are finished. 


So spread the word. If you know someone in need of a new business card design send them here or they can visit www.sararubendall.etsy.com.

What's New


I have some new designs I am in the process of finishing. The shop has been pretty busy so I haven't gotten a chance to get any new sets in the shop. There are some designs in the works that I am super excited about and I will be sure to let you all know when they are up in the shop.


Business Marketing Kits are coming soon! All of my shop sets have always been available as bmk's but I will soon I will have bmk listings for every set. This will be pretty time consuming so if you know you want a business marketing kit you can always visit the made to match section and let me know via convo or notes to seller box upon checkout the set you would like your bmk matched to. 


I will also be writing up a tutorial to go out with all of the orders. If you order a shop set from me you will receive instructions on how to install your set as well as the best places to print your printable items. This tutorial will also include information about uploading your items to printing sites as well as Etsy.com.


This isn't new but I wanted to add it because I know not a lot of you know this. Revisions are free and unlimited for the life of your product(which is forever!) I have a lot of people convo me and ask how much a revision is...and the answer is it is free. Simply convo or e-mail and I will be more than happy to help you out! As a military wife I know that people move, and sometimes quite often and I don't think you should have to pay extra.


So there you have it. Be sure to enter the giveaway and tell everyone you know about it. It is a pretty nice little gift so get the word out!

It's Spring!

Hey everyone! I'm blogging a day early because I will be busy here in the studio this week. I am going to be working on a tutorial on how to make your very own etsy banner on Piknic for Babyswank as well as making some new sets for my shop. They will be springtime inspired and (of course) will be super fun!

Today's tip is one that I myself follow on a daily basis. Re-list and re-list often. You can either list new items or use the renew feature, which I absolutely love! After I re-opened my shop recently I noticed Etsy has a new renew option. This is great for shops that want to re-list items but don't want to go through the hassle of copying their listings. Log in to Etsy and click the little shop icon at the top of the page. You can click on any item and you will be brought to the listings page. From there, click the blue link at the top that says renew. This is fastest way to get your shop noticed and you won't lose your hearts on the item either. This is a huge factor because I have items in my shop with considerable amounts of hearts and if you re-list by copying the listing those hearts go away.

Renewing listings is such a great tool that Etsy has offered and I am loving it! Take advantage of this because it will save you time and will get your items viewed.

Have a great weekend everyone and be sure to check out my shop this week. It will be loaded with lots of new springy designs!
