moonsofjuupitr asked: Hi there! I'm just another fan of your fabulous work! n_n I'm curious...how did you go about setting up your online store(s)? Do you have any advice to illustrators who want to start printing their own apparel and merchandise? Thanks! :D
thank you! :]
if you don’t mind, i’m going to direct you to this tl;dr post! feel free to ask me any questions i didn’t cover there, though.
the only other bit of advice that comes to mind right now is to get used to working large (300 DPI at least,) if you haven’t already; and either draw in CMYK mode for stuff you plan on having printed, or be mindful of using colors that don’t print well (dark colors and brights.) often i use photoshop’s default palette because its colors are pretty print safe. every printer handles things a little differently, but in general, your work will print darker than it appears on your screen.
oh, and creep printing companies’ facebooks and twitter accounts for deals B) HO HO HO.
