2. The second way is for you to use the Studio Submissions page in the members only section. This is how you can create your own store or album by adding as many dolls as you want in your personal Artist's Studio page. This is a free service to you as an active member of IADR.
Simply fill out the form (see the example of the form below). The information about the doll will all be placed with the picture of the doll in your Artist's Studio gallery. By clicking on the image of the doll it will either show as a gallery piece, or take you to the link you have included on the form such as your website if you are wanting to sell it, or it will open up your email link for a potential customer to be able to contact you.
Yes, you can link your art doll to any site - this can be your website, an Etsy shop or Ebay. We might have to work a few to see if your Facebook store link will work (as we have not been able to test that yet), but if it does, we will link to there too!
Why are we offering to do this? Because I think as a group we should help support each other to be seen. If you don't have a website, then this is for you! Even if you have a Facebook store this is an option for you as one doesn't really know what direction they will be heading in the future, and if you have a website (or any other type of store), then this is also for you. The more we can post in social media the more we can be seen! So if saying "I can also be seen at IADR..." gives you just one more way of getting out there with a fresh post for networking.
As I said above, you can list as many dolls you want... after all, this is your shop. Again, there is no charge for this service. This is one of the perks of IADR membership and up to you whether you want to use it or not.
This option is under construction but I hope to have it up and running soon. At this time, this third option will only be available to members located and selling in the United States as we are not established with taxes and other requirements needed for selling in other countries. But who knows, maybe in the future as we keep growing!
How does the Artist's Studio work? Let me tell you. *smiling*.
On the page of the Artist's Studio is a picture to represent each member of the IADR. I used the doll picture you submitted for the website to create this feature for you, but the image does not need to stay this image. You simply let me know what you want to replace it with, send me the image and I'll change the image. It can be an image of you, the artist, your favorite doll or even a logo of your business. Whatever you want it to be to represent your work.
