If you want to use the template for more business cards - do you really have to upload it each time again, or is there a shorter way?

I think i don't understand the question. The "template" here is an image, with precise dimensions, nothing more. So, you cannot use one template more than once. I mean, every template is different image, so you have to upload one by one template (image), like in every stock site.
When you upload one template, you make a business card of it, but I think you shouldn't use one template for more business cards, because all text fields you make can be modified by customer. That means, any customer can choose one of your business cards, and change text fields, text color, font etc. and make his own business card the way he likes it. So, basically, the only important thing you give to customers is am image, and they choose text placement and style. There is no point of making more than one template with one single image. That is leaved to customers.

Thank you very much, WhiteChild. I obviously misunderstood the concept. I thought it was up to me to set the business cards all ready with the text fields. So I tried to save one image (template) with a few different text fields. :-)

Whitechild...your response to that question was perfect.

I came back in this morning to post the following:

Uploading the same image in the same location on a card template multiple times. Please do not do this.
There is no reason to upload the same card several times and simply change the text layout around it. The duplicate cards will be disabled. The customer has the ability to change the text layout of a card on their own. The layout that you or I put on the card is really just a representation of where we think the text should go.

Thanks!

Miklav...your page looks fantastic. :) Once you go through and change the ranking on your templates, let me know. I'll refresh your page and you'll have more of a variety of templates that show up. While I like the beer and pocket watch templates, you may want to display some of your other templates on your page as well.

I'm done too! :)

It looks good. By the way, I like how you were able to get the light from the lighthouses to shine on "Company Name" on those templates. Very cool.

Thanks! This picture of lighthouse is one of my bestsellers on microstocks. Hopefully business cards buyers will like it too ;)

I've got my first sale and I am pleasantly surprised - it was sold as a package of business card and graphic image, and therefore the payment is much higher :)

i am ready to upload some designs, but the payment is only through PayPal.
I do not have PayPal as it doesn't recognise my country. Is Moneybooker allowed?
Or is there any alternative? Please advise. Thanks!

Hi Everyone,

It's been awhile since I've posted here and I apologize. I've been very busy processing new artist registrations...which is a wonderful thing for us! I am getting caught up.

litifeta: It's true, you only have 48 templates on our site. Your sales are nice and consistent these days. Just imagine though...if you had several hundred templates on our site (hint, hint).  :o

Magnum: You have great templates and I'm sure sales will start occurring shortly. Give it some time. I have seen a couple of your cards being played with in customer shopping carts. So, people are starting to discover your templates. It will happen (litifeta can vouch for me on that one).

Miklav: I knew that your lighthouse template would be the first one to sell! Congratulations on selling it as well as the Art File!

khwi: We do make exceptions for people who aren't able to accept PayPal in their country. We can work with you to pay you through Moneybookers. If you are interested in signing up as an artist, please email me (I think my email address is listed in this thread somewhere). I will send you some information about our artist community and the new Additional Use Program as well.

Thanks! I'll check back here shortly!

I've been focusing on some other things and will have time soon to add the additional graphic format to my existing templates and will make some more graphics to upload. Looking forward to sales too! :)

epantha: Sounds great!

Also, for those of you who are registered artists on our site, there is a forum thread that is in the artist section which contains all of the categories that are new or still in need of good, relevant templates. I would encourage you to check their often and see if you have images that would do well in one of these categories. These new categories are started based primarily on customers search patterns as well as our own research. So, submitting to categories listed in that forum thread might be a quick way to score a sale! :)

do the clients search using the description, and not keywords like microstock sites?

Hi khwi: I'll be in touch shortly to answer your questions. My son has a soccer game today, so it may be later tonight before I get an email off to you.

***Attention Artists Who are Interested in Joining Our Site***

I am thrilled that we continue to have such a great response to participating in our Featured Artist Community. Right now, the artist registration feature is not currently available on our site...unless you email me. Please don't register on our site from the main page where it says "Create a New Account". This is for customers who want to purchase cards. If you register here, it will not allow you access to our site as a Featured Artist. Actually, if you register there, I'll make you buy a set of business cards...JUST KIDDING. :)

Please just email me at [email protected] for now and I will process your registration as soon as possible.

Thanks!

TimMc

Hello,

I'm trying to located the following folks who signed up on our site as a result of this thread. I have emailed them multiple times, but have not received any replies. If you know them or chat with them here in the forum, please ask them to let me know what they want to do with their registration on our site. I would like to finish processing their registrations.

Here are the folks:

1. KngKyle. He has 25 templates uploaded. I have emailed asking for the information needed to complete his portfolio page.

2. Jimi King. He has 10 templates done so far. I have written his page. I just need him to finish uploading the 15 remaining templates needed, get his approval for his page and his portfolio can be published.

3. Noam (only named listed in their registration). This person has uploaded 27 templates. I just need to receive their information so I can write their page.

4. Ramon Grosso. 1 template uploaded so far. But, I have never had a reply to any of my emails. I need his information and I need him to complete 24 more templates.

Any help locating or contacting these folks would be greatly appreciated. If I don't hear from any of them within the next week or so, I will simply delete their work and registration...freeing up a spot for another artist who is interested in joining our community.

Thanks! :)

I have had two sales so far. Looks good! One of them was paid for very quickly, the other one is taking its time... It is still grey.

Hi contributors on Printbusinesscard.com!!!

As you know Moneybookers has no longer payment option for payouts from USA based agencies...

So, as you know PayPal doesn't make payouts for many of us outside of "blessing countries", and if you use Payoneer and you are contributor on Printbusinesscard.com please go to Printbussinescard community  forum and give your vote for using  Payoneer as an  alternative payment option...

Printbusinesscard needs to have minimum 5 Payoneer users to be able to open a business account...
I am first...

Support on PBC is very friendly  and  they are willing to help us...

Here is link:

http://www.printbusinesscards.com/Forum.php?do=phpbb-viewtopic&p=6337#6337

P.S.

I think that will be good for many of us!
