I have posted more completed items here on the Products page of this website today. That’s another eight items.
So when these are posted to Etsy, that will be a total of 33 items for Didi Lou Crafts, found by going to https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/DidiLouCrafts, having posted 3 additional cards to Etsy late Wednesday.
My favourites in this batch are the sand blasted vase and the two hand painted silk ties. Also included are some tea light holders and some upcycled gift bags. These are hot off the press, having been photographed only a few hours ago.
The process from photography through to listing on Etsy is actually quite drawn out. First I load the photos from the camera to the computer and check them, sometimes needing to go back and get additional shots. I then choose the best 3-5 photos of each item, deleting the rest. The remaining photos are then cropped, but they have to be cropped either square or in landscape orientation, portrait is not suitable on Etsy. I then resize them to be 1000 pixels wide.
Next I choose 1 photo for the website, making a copy of it resized to be 200 pixels wide. Both copies of that photo can then be loaded here and I can update the product page here, coming up with a suitable name for the item.
But the processing getting ready for Etsy continues. The items each need to be weighed and measured to work out the postage and start writing the description. The description also includes putting the item in the right categories and adding appropriate tag words and components to get picked up in searches. I also double check my initial cost estimate and readjust the price if necessary as I load the photos on Etsy. Only then can it be made active on Etsy for sale.Follow Didi Lou Crafts
