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 post a recommendation to our profile, 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

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

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
Coral Springs, FL

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.
