Maybe it would be a good idea to start new thread bout it, so people could see what you want right from the title.

Hello Everyone,

I hope you all have enjoyed your summer. It has been beautiful here in the Pacific Northwest of the US.

I have received some renewed interest in our Featured Artist Program from the good folks here at Microstock and wanted to pass on some new information to you that is "hot off the press."

Yesterday, we launched our new website that is dedicated solely to our Featured Artist Community, www.TheArtofBusinessCards.com. This is the main site for all of our artist activity. It is where you can sign up to join our program, manage your portfolio, and engage in our forum.

I wanted to put that information out there because I have recently had several people over the past two days register on our site, PrintBusinessCards.com as customers, not artists. Please refrain from registering at PrintBusinessCards.com.

Again, if you need additional information, please do not hesitate to email me: [email protected].

Thanks!

I registered today under the new site (actually both the old and the new site oops).  Is there some sort of approval time between registering and being able to access the new site, as it says right now that I haven't been approved yet and as such am unable to access anything on the new site.

There is one big change that we were not clear about; we have moved all your information to the new site. You are no longer able to login on the PBC website. If you refer anyone to our community, please be sure you let them know to register at the new site. We have had a couple of people register at PBC and as a result, they are very confused. The process to become a community member will take a new applicant a couple of days to be approved. First they have to apply and provide some details about their experience and where they have other artwork. Once we are confident they will be a valuable member, we will give them access to the site.

Hey Eppic,

I sent your portfolio page copy over to you late last night. As soon as you review it and approve it, I can get your page and templates approved.

Looking forward to seeing your work available to our customers!

Thanks for joining us!!

Tim

Don't have many templates uploaded, less than 40, and get occasional sales. RPD is very high compared to microstock sites. :)

I don't think Tim is active on this forum...he does advertise here but I don't think he is active...you have to go to the business card website to communicate with him.
Oh and buy the way, just so everyone knows, I make more money with the business cards than I do off microstock.. ;D

Since starting back into vectors... this might be interesting. How many card designs do you need to apply?

I've been on there for awhile and don't remember exactly how many. You might want to ask Stu...I just directed him to this site recently so he could tell you better than I can. They don't pay for referals so I'm not gaining anything by sending you here, but here is my port on there and will give you a sense of the type of cards that sell.
 http://www.printbusinesscards.com/ordering/Donna-Beeler-Business-Cards.php
You have to upload the cards in tiff format.
This is how the file has to be:
This is for uploading Templates for use on our site.
File Format Must be Tiff ( click Here for more information.)
Resolution should be 300 dpi, 3.75x2.25 (1125x675 pixels) inches CMYK color
( With required .125 inch Bleed, only the middle 3.5 x 2 inches will be printed )
LZW compression should be on, with no Colorprofiles, and there should be no layers in the file
  I enjoy doing it just to pass time. I think it's fun.

Oh forgot to mention you have to go through a review process to see if they will work...like i said you'll have PM stu to find out how many...then I believe you have to have 21 or 22 before you can have the featured Artist page.

Cool. Thanks. I have been working on a sheet of 9 various designs for the Micros anyways.

Good luck... just be conservative in your expectations.  I've had about 25 designs there for 6 months or so, and I think I've seen three sales of $5 each.

The more the better. I got close to 500 desins on there and have regular sales there, but I think the more the better just as with any stock site....it's just a good place to put those images that are good but the stock sites don't except because of "noise" or "We already have to many images that cover this topic"

Ok... Donna, I have looked at your designs and I got a question. Do you just design the backgrounds and the Formats of Text Layout and "Upload Your Photo" are something you choose after upload the Background? Hope I made sense.

Oh.. the Army Card you have... is that Emblem from Card site? Just wondering because Most Gov. stuff is usually very well kept from Public use.

You design the card according to their specifications...the size, tiff format ect ect. Then when you upload them it takes you to an upload page where you put in the description, catagory and the text design that you think looks best from their list of different ones. You choose the text design and you can play with different ones untill you find the one that is best looking one for your card. The customer can change the text layout however they want..that just gives them an idea how it would look on the business card. You have to be aware of where the text would go while designing so you don't design one that doesn't work. Oh and the Army card is one of my better seller's and it is one of their stock text designs. That one of the tree at the top left corner is my best seller. That's what I was talking about before...it was rejected at all the agencies for poor lighting....but heh I make more off it here than if it was on the stock sites

Hi Stu and Donna,

Donna, thank you for the kind words and support you give our program here. I really appreciate it. To make you aware, in the coming days (might be a couple of weeks) we will have a referral program that will pay out a bonus through link tracking. We have a couple of other upgrades we're finishing up on some of  our websites before that program can be properly implemented. But, it's coming! Thank you for referring people to us without it.

Stu, I don't actively participate here. I 'come by' occasionally and read through various topics (including this one) because I find them informative and helpful. However, I'm not an accomplished photographer (I just finished up my last cartridge of Polaroid film -- just kidding) and I am a horrible artist in any format (although my 4 year old nephew thinks I draw the best planes and trucks...but he lives a very sheltered life, haha). So, I really don't have a great deal to add to most conversations. I'm good at appreciating great photography, graphic design, and art though. I marvel at the talent you all have and really respect and enjoy your creativity immensely. Honestly.

I'm thankful for many of the folks who are active here in the Microstock Community who are also part of our Featured Artist Program. We're a small player (at the moment), but we're growing despite the tough economy and excited about what this year holds for our company. Many folks from here have joined our program, made great suggestions to us, created fantastic business card templates that sell well, and we're looking forward to pushing forward to make this a successful year (and beyond) for everyone involved.

Thanks!

~Tim

Hi Everyone!

I just wanted to let you all know that we are now able to process payments to our Featured Artist Community via Payoneer. Previously we were able to only pay through PayPal.

I know this was an issue for some of our artists and some of you who were interested in joining us.

As I've mentioned before in my posts throughout this thread, I'm very appreciative of the talented folks from MicrostockGroup that have joined our site.

Personally, I think we have a fantastic group of extremely talented people from all over the world represented throughout our various websites...and many of those artists have joined us as a direct result of the great group of people found here at MicrostockGroup. Hopefully with the addition of being able to use Payoneer to process payments, many more of you will give it a go too!

Thanks!

If they don't give it a go...they are missing out on some good income. I make more money off your site than I do from any one stock site and don't have to sell nearly as many to do it. Keep up the good work Tim
