Whitechild, your page should go up live today...just got your email with your approval of the text.

Miklav, I received your email yesterday with your information. I should be able to work on your page's text a little later today.

Thanks guys!

Thank you litifeta. I am sure you have no reason to be jealous. Your photos are really great :)
@epantha, I don't have any specific area of animal care, but I can say I like to work with small animals more than with big ones. :D

maybe I'm missing something, but...

I registered, uploaded a few tamplates, but then nothing happens, it just brings me back to the upload page, and I can seem to find my uploads anywhere I looked.
how do you get to the page of setting up the templates?

Lior, you should be able to manage your templates when you click on "My Account" in the upper right.

Did you sign up from this page?

I joined from the page Tim posted in his post.
I did try looking in the "My account" page, but nothing is there, and when I click on "Manage templates" it gets me to a search page with no images on it. I tired searching with the filenames I uploaded but it found nothing.

one thing that could be it is when I upload an image, when the upload is done it gets me back to the upload page with a "Only Tif Files Can Be Uploaded Here" message in bold red letters on the top of the screen.
But I did upload tif images with the exact specs they asked to.

which program do you use?  did you follow these steps?
 
i use cs2 and do the following
create in rgb
go to mode convert to cmyk
save as a tiff as a copy - do not have anything else checked there
next is most important save with  LZW - interleaved and macintosh no matter what computer you use click macintosh
save  then upload. 

missing any of those will get it booted out... i know, i get in a hurry and get booted occasionally ::)

Okay,

I think I should answer a few of the questions that have come up since my last post.

oboy (Hlernerer): The two templates you uploaded are great. Feel free to continue to upload. No templates will be approved until you have a minimum of 25 uploaded. I also need to have you review the text that I sent to you for your page (sent Tuesday night). Once I have your approval on the text and 25 templates...I'll get your page and templates up on the site asap.

Lior: I just sent you an email concerning your difficulties uploading. If you still cannot figure out what the issue is, please send me one template file via email. I'll forward it to Brian, our site developer and head designer. I'll have him check it out all and see if he can determine what the problem may be. Your registration was after my last post and unfortunately, I won't be able to process it until after Sept. 5th.

PauloResende: I also sent an email to you today. Your registration is after the cutoff too. The templates you uploaded look great. I will not be able to work on  the rest of your registration until after Sept. 5th as well.

Lior and Paulo, again, I apologize for the delay in being able to process your registrations. I have to get caught up and also get this major change in place on our system.

Thanks! I'll keep checking in...

Whitechild and epantha...glad you like your pages! I think they turned out nice too. You both have some excellent templates too. Thank you, thank you, thank you! :)

MikLav: I am working on the text for your page today. Once I have it written, I'll send it to you for your review and approval. As soon as that happens, I'll get your page up and approved. :) I'm getting it all done as fast as I can.  ;)

Thank you Tim, I send you the approval already, but in case you did not receive it - the text is OK. Did not know that you need 25 templates. Will work on this over the weekend.

oboy: Thanks for letting me know about the page. For some reason, I can't find your email. Anyhow, thanks for posting it here. I look forward to seeing the rest of your templates. As soon as they're up, I'll get your page posted and templates approved.

Thanks!

I posted this in our forum at PrintBusinessCards.com (for those of you who have registered on our site, you can view it when you are signed in...it's in the General section of the Artists Forum). However, I thought it would be prudent to post it here too since many of the new artists and pending artists for our site frequently visit here.

The following is some information about business card template design.

******
We are all thrilled to have you as part of our growing community here. Many of you have been uploading excellent business card templates.

I do however want to share a few tips with you that will help you increase the ability to sell your cards.

1. I'm seeing a lot of vertical card designs. While these are pleasing to the eye...they don't sell well. Horizontal cards outsell vertical cards 99.99% the time. If it's possible to create a horizontal card, I'd always recommend that you do so. If you cannot create a good horizontal card out of a particular design, feel free to go ahead and upload it. However, the probability of selling it is much, much lower than if it were a horizontal design.

2. Text space on cards. Business card design is a bit different due to the fact that text space has to be maximized. Remember, the customer is purchasing a business card to convey information. Really, the design/image is secondary for them. The picture or design is there to REINFORCE something about their company or product. While the image and design is very important and helps their card get noticed, the most important thing for the customer is the ability to prominently place the name of their company and desire contact information on the card. Cards that don't have ample text space lower their appeal to customers. Please take this into consideration when putting together your templates.

3. Ability to read the text. The background behind the text placement is also important. I have not approved quite a few cards because the background behind the text is both light and dark. It has to be one or the other. If the background is dark, light text will show up. If the background is light, darker text will show up. However, a mixture of the two renders the text unreadable. Please make sure that the area you have for the text allows it to be readable.

I think that's it for now. Again, we are thrilled that you have chosen to join us. I know that you all desire to sell cards and make money! Following the tips listed above will assist you in your efforts! Thanks!
