Happy Saturday Sweet Friends!
Nicole here, checking in – How much did you love the release?! We had so much fun showing off the new stamp sets – and we just can’t wait to see what you talented ladies will make with the new images! (please share!)
Today we’re introducing a new series by Tenia Nelson, Getting Published!
Getting Published?! What’s that, you might ask….
Well, if you’ve ever checked out a print magazine (or maybe even an online one) full of crafty goodness – odds are that you’ve seen lots of contributing artists JUST LIKE YOU!
Basically, people share with the magazines cards and other various crafty projects they’ve made – and in return they get to see their work in print!
You might think to yourself – ok, that’s cool – but, I don’t know if that’s enough incentive for me to take time to send in my creations to a magazine….
I’d say – WAIT – there’s more!
Different Magazines offer product, $$, and even long term designing in exchange for your creations! Not to mention, most manufactures offer ‘publication incentives’ — so, if your creation gets picked up by a magazine and you’ve used a specific brand of ribbon (you mention that you did) – often times (like 89% of the time) that company will send you $$ or product or feature you on their marketing…. etc!
From the average hobby crafter – all the way to the ‘Martha’ hopefuls …. there is a ton of reasons to try your hand at getting published …..
SO, without gabbin’ on any more – here is Tenia with her first ‘Getting Published’ post….
Happy Saturday and hope all is well!! It’s Tenia from Jazzy Paper Designs and every other Saturday for three months I will be giving y’all the 411 on getting published!!!
One of the big things on getting published is…..well……DO IT!!! You never know if you do not try!!! It took me TWO years before I got anything published in ANY magazine. I kept on being persistent and then one day……BOOM!! Keep on submitting even though your projects do not get chosen the first time. As Dory from Finding Nemo would say “Keep on Swimming!” Today I will spotlight on a few magazines that y’all could get published in…….CHECK IT!!!
Did you know that Sweet Stamp Shop has a publication incentive?
Thanks for stopping in today – Tenia will be with us for the next three months sharing her secrets! ONE more thing!
