Get to Know Us - Love is in the Air - part 2

We couldn't be happier about the fact that you share your stories about your experiences with our company in your tweets, posts, and in your conversations with friends and family. Not only are you helping us help more people, but you're also allowing us to spend more of our time working on improving our products and services, rather than spending time and money on traditional advertising.

Your recommendations mean a lot to us.  A conversation between friends, where you explain how happy you are with our services, is worth so much more than exposure to a paid advertisement.  That's why we don't spend a single dollar on paid advertisements.  Instead, we put 100% of our focus on making sure you are happy.  

We aim to provide you with a service that delights you and never takes you for granted.  If we succeed, we hope you'll tell your friends.  If we fall short, we hope you'll contact us to let us know so that we can take steps to make things right.

In this age of technology and faceless interactions, we think that the main factor that differentiates iPrintfromHome from other companies is our story, our company culture, and our commitment to running a business with a heart.  We want you to know who we are and why we love doing what we do.  Go to iPrintfromHome.com and click on "Our Values" and "Our Process" to get to know us a little better.

We work with lots of you to help make prints that you sell through your Etsy shops.  We recently joined Etsy Manufacturing and we are super excited about it.  As part of the Beta launch of their program, Etsy has offered photography services to some manufacturers.  For a little sneak peek behind the scenes, check out these images captured by Rachel Sifferd: Etsy Manufacturing Shoot

You can also review our Etsy Manufacturing profile here.  If you sell prints on Etsy and would like to recommend us, let us know and we'll send you a link.

As always, thank you for your continued support of iPrintfromHome.com!

Thanks,
Sara, George and the iPrintfromHome.com team

Love is in the Air - part 1

We couldn't be happier about the fact that you share your stories about your experiences with our company in your blog entries, on your Facebook pages and in your conversations with friends and family. Not only are you helping us help more people, but you're also allowing us to spend more of our time working on improving our products and services, rather than spending time and money on traditional advertising.

During the month of February, we like to take the opportunity to say "THANK YOU!" for all of your help and also to remind you of some of the programs we have in place to help facilitate the work you do to spread the word about us.

Starting with this one, we're going to send you a few eNewsletters this month, each highlighting different aspects of our "Thank You Dollars" program. First, we'd like to start out with a simple description of the program itself:

Thank You Dollars Program
At iPrintfromHome.com, we run a "Thank You Dollars" program where we award current customers iPrintfromHome account credit for referring new customers.

If you send us a new customer, you will earn $2 in "Thank You Dollars" when your friend creates an account at iPrintfromHome.com and enters your name in the "Referred by" entry box. You will receive another $10 when they place their first order. As you earn "Thank You Dollars," they will be automatically deposited into your account and you will receive notification by email. Basically, it boils down to $12 in account credit for each customer that you send to iPrintfromHome.com, which you can then apply towards future orders.

This program runs all the time and there are no limits to how many Thank You Dollars you can earn.

iPrintfromHome.com Ambassador Center
Once you start successfully referring customers, we'll send you an e-mail invitation to become an official iPrintfromHome.com Ambassador. As an Ambassador, you can take advantage of various tools we've made available to help you spread the word about iPrintfromHome.com and you'll get sneak peeks on promotions and new products. For more information about our Ambassadors Program, please click here.

As always, thank you for your support of iPrintfromHome.com! And, many thanks for your help spreading the word about our services.

Thanks,
the iPrintfromHome.com team

What, How & Why: A Closer Look - Featuring Roby Raciti

At iPrintfromHome.com, we work with artists and photographers from across the United States and Canada. We're inspired everyday by the images that they send to us and by the stories they share.

In our "What, How & Why" interview series, we take a closer look at some of these fascinating people.

We've asked each participating artist or photographer three simple questions:
1. What do you do?
2. How do you do it?
3. Why do you use iPrintfromHome.com?

Please read on to find out more about Roby Raciti.
Roby Raciti
Artist

What do you do?
I'm a student who has a passion for art and videos, and decided to combine the two through Youtube! I stick mostly to a cartoon style for my drawings, which I've developed over time thanks to other artists who I've met on social medias where the art community is a part of such as deviantArt and Instagram. I enjoy creating my own personal characters as well as drawing fanart of others and taking commissions. I recently also began selling art prints since a few people suggested the idea. 

How do you do it?
I draw both traditionally and digitally; for my traditional art I've grown to love using copic markers and colored pencils, since I felt the two fit my style the most, and for digital I use a drawing program along with a Wacom tablet. 

Why do you use iPrintfromHome.com?
As someone who probably currently can't afford to own a good printer and buy all the materials to make art prints themselves, this site was a definitely lifesaver. Not only did I find exactly what I had in mind for my prints, but it was also simple to use and arrived quickly. I also appreciated that some paper samples were sent as well so I can psychically choose what would be best for future orders. I genuinely recommend this site to anyone looking to get prints made, especially younger artists like me who might be new to all of this as well and want a good place to start. 

Wow! iPrintfromHome has changed my entire outlook on the print process. I am thrilled to find a company who makes the print process easy and still delivers such quality.

Now Offering Custom Back Printing
Thank you for trusting us to help you make the prints that you sell in your Etsy Shops, on Amazon, at art shows and to your portrait and wedding photography clients.  We're writing to you today to introduce our new custom back printing option to help promote your business and give your prints a more professional look.

All of our photographic prints include back printing, which is text on the back of the print that lists your order number and the file name.  If you would like, we can create a custom back print for any prints ordered through your account. The first line can be customized. The second line would contain your order number. So, it could look something like this:

First line: Your Business Name
Second line: order number

If you'd like to set up your account with custom back printing, please send us an e-mail letting us know.  All we need to know is what text you would like included on the first line.  We'll create the custom setting and then write back to confirm that all photographic prints ordered moving forward will include your custom back printing.

If you have any questions, please click here to contact us.

Thanks,
the iPrintfromHome.com team

Drop Shipping Services
dropShip
iPrintfromHome.com is pleased to offer drop shipping services so that you can send your orders directly to your clients. All you need to do is select "Drop ship to my client/friend" when you select your shipping address during the order placement process.

checkout4dropship If you select to have your order drop shipped, your order will be shipped without an invoice or any promotional materials. We will also remove our company name from the return address and send your package in a plain mailer or box without any identifying markings.

PromoPrint_Reviews Some customers who want to brand their drop shipments have started creating a digital file combining an image of their work and some text (a note, or a thank you message) and then ordering a 4x6 print of that file with their orders. It's a nice way to personalize drop shipments and maintain control over the design and appearance of your brand. Also, because you can change the design at any moment (you're only ordering one at a time), you'll have the freedom to make customer specific offers. For instance, you could give a first time customer a discount on a future order or invite someone to follow you on Facebook. We make them all the time for orders that we send to you. Here's an example of one the we use to encourage people to leave us reviews on Facebook and Yelp. We'd be happy to bounce ideas around with you. Feel free to contact us with any questions.

We're always looking to improve our services and many of our improvements come as a direct result of customer requests. If you have any suggestions, please don't hesitate to contact us. We'd love to hear what you have to say.

As always, thank you for your continued support of iPrintfromHome.com.

Thanks,
the iPrintfromHome.com team
