Art Business: Where to Get Marketing Supplies 

We order a lot of stuff online to create marketing packets, videos, DVDs and other groovy stuff for artists. If you're a DIY person, these resources should help. Do order them online as much as you can, and save yourself a lot of running around. Or, let us do it for you so you can get back to being an artist.  ;-D

These are just a few of the many quality places to buy online. If YOU have suggestions and places you love, please send them to me or leave a comment here on the blog.

DVD and CD labels, cases, media
Neato www.neato.com/
  We use their stuff to create in-house, and we've uploaded designs and had them print (and even shrink wrap) DVDs and CDs.

Presentation folders and labels:  
Office Depot:  www.officedepot.com and
Staples:  www.staples.com
  Folders, labels, papers, media, shipping supplies. You can shop online and get back to creating your art.  Or, your local office supply store should have a nice selection. Also ask at their in-house print shop about custom orders.
Online Printers, Google "custom presentation folders" or try www.printplace.com 

Art Supplies, Craft Supplies, and Fine Papers:
Michaels www.michaels.com
Mowhawk Fine Papers  www.mohawkpaper.com
Blick Art Materials  www.dickblick.com
Utrecht Art Supplies www.utrechtart.com
Art Paper www.artpaper.com
Legion Paper www.legionpaper.com
Fabric.com www.fabric.com
JoAnn Fabric & Crafts www.joann.com

Shipping:
We have accounts online. Just fill in the info and print shipping labels on your own printer (and return shipping labels). FedEx will give you shipping supplies and even pre-print your information on their shipping labels.
USPS: United States Postal Service www.usps.com 800-275-8777
FedEx: Federal Express www.fedex.com 800-463-3339
DHL: www.dhl.com 800-225-5345

And because you have high-resolution images of your work, and some cool photos of you, you working in your studio, you at your shows/galleries, you installing your work at a show, etc., you can use them in your packet, and in your portfolio, your postcards, your business cards, rack cards, and so on.

Gift for YouWant some help or advice on how to put together your packets and other marketing materials?  The first 15 minutes are on me, just email me to schedule some time.

All my best to you and yours,

Digital Arts Studio
