Vir­tual shop­keep­ing

NPhoto - - Special Feature -

If you’re just look­ing for a spot on the in­ter­net to of­fer prints for sale, then set­ting up a shop on an on­line mar­ket­place is likely to be more suit­able. You have two op­tions here: you could choose a site that han­dles the print­ing, fram­ing and shipping for you, like Fine Art Amer­ica (http://fin­eartamer­ica.com), or use a site where you take care of ev­ery­thing in­stead, such as Etsy (www.etsy.com/uk/). Do­ing it your­self al­lows you to check each print be­fore you ship it, although you will have the added has­sle of ar­rang­ing the print­ing, fram­ing and post­ing your­self.

As for other money-gen­er­at­ing projects that you can turn around in a month, how about mak­ing a com­mer­cial cal­en­dar? (You’ll need to get your skates on if you want to hit the win­dow for 2015!) There are three routes here: first, you can make a straight­for­ward pho­to­li­cens­ing en­quiry to an es­tab­lished cal­en­dar and post­card print­ing business such as Judges (www. judges.co.uk); sec­ond, you can print your own cal­en­dars through the likes of Bob Books (www.bob­books.co.uk) and sell those your­self; or, the third op­tion, try a print-on-de­mand ser­vice like Cal­vendo (www.cal­vendo.com), which also en­ables you to get your cal­en­dar listed on Ama­zon.
