New Shop: Switching to a more Integrated Solution!

Big announcement, everyone - I've created a new shop that's fully integrated with this blog! It's got a whole new look, and it's now a little bit more affordable. I added prints I've been meaning to add for a while, and removed some that I felt were not up to the quality I wanted to offer. (I'll probably add them to my Redbubble to make up for it.) Plus, stickers!

Why I switched

Etsy recently increased their fees, which prompted most artists I know on Etsy to increase the pricing of their items. I followed suit, of course, but I didn't want to force my customers to help eat that extra cost - so I figured I ought to offer a different solution that should make everyone a little happier.

Enter WooCommerce, a solution that's already integrated to WordPress! It's free to set up, and with a little CSS-styling plus fixing some security issues, I was ready to go.

The New Look

Since I was integrating my shop with the blog, I wanted to redo how my listings looked to better suit the way the blog looks! I went ahead and changed up my Etsy listings, too, so it looks nice and uniform everywhere.

Plus, Stickers!

I've been meaning to add stickers to the shop for ages, and with this shop redo I was able to! I also figured out how to mail them for significantly less - with stamps, in a hand-addressed envelope - which I hope is a solution that suits everyone.

I hope this switch works well for everyone! If you'd rather shop on Etsy, my shop is still up on Etsy - and if you can't help yourself but look for the best deal, well, that's definitely the new shop here on the blog.
