Just wanted to say thank you for letting us all know about this site. I've sold four cards in about as many months. It's a small but the sales are steadily building. They are also one of the easiest sites on the internet to work with.

That site is so awkward.  They badly need to make it better.    Especially for contributors.   Where do I check for sales? Status report I figured.  Its all white for now. Why not print a zero or something, so you know your at the right place...  If I get a sale or twenty I might be happier :P

Think I have like 60-80 cards on there, I sell maybe 1 or 2 a month.  Not worth my time right now to make more.  Upload process there is a pain, no auto IPTC nothing like that.  CMYK tiff, specific formatting for their site - that means more time spent catering to one place.  I submit to 21 other agencies, and those I actually make money on.

I would love to try there but don't have the software to convert to CMYK. I use PSE and Lightroom 2.0. Have corresponded with them several times about whether they had some other format in place to get around the conversion (i.e. they converted once jpg or tiff uploaded, etc.), but apparently they don't. Can't afford right now to buy anymore software. That's too bad.

Graficalyminded, are any of the other 21 agencies you submit to similar to the business card site? One that doesn't require CMYK conversion first? If so, I would be very interested in information on them.

You could try Gimp which is free and then find a plugin that converts to cmyk - haven't tried it but I believe its possible.

21 agencies sounds crazy - I think its made Graficalyminded a bit crazy looking at his avatar ;)

You can use Imagemagick for converting color spaces. Here is a link:

Since they redesigned the site and hid the links to artists ports away in the Community section with the forums, sales have dried up. I hardly sell anything there now.  >:(

 I think you can convert your Tiffs in PS to CMYK by first picking the "convert to profile" and choosing the method they want like "U.S. web coated swope v2" once you have it in the right profile then go to "assign to profile" now change the profile to "working cmyk" that should get you a cmyk but you need to know what cmyk format they want it in for press. That is what you picked when you assigned your profile. U.S. web coated and sheet fed are widely used but it depends on your printer. They can always tweak it at press as long as they have a good cmyk file to work from. Hope this helps, not my specialty.

Best,
Jonathan

All I do to convert the photo is > Image > Mode > CMYK Color

I kinda got the impression that the person asking the question does not have access to Photoshop.
