Opportunities for Artists, Crafters and Makers at Letter Create Studio

Hello, Creatives ūüôā

As we move into a different time with Covid-19 and the number of restrictions set upon us – I am having to change the way I am doing things for the time being.¬† Despite opening a brand new retail space (something I planned for – for 2 years for 2020….great timing LOL).

Moving forward I am doing the following things and I am wondering if you would like to participate **THIS EMAIL is LONNNGGG so bear with me!
The goal of my business has always centered around community, learning, and positivity.  The community goal was achieved through retreats and workshops, the learning was through the same venue, and positivity was centered around our offerings.
The new store is located at 1731 N Casaloma Dr.  Appleton, WI 54913 Рacross from the Osorios and Timber Rattlers Stadium with a complete buildout.  It is a brand new space!

Opportunity 1:  Online Creative Summit
Learn Create Online Creative Summit
All-inclusive art and craft retreat online for all ages and all experience levels. We will also have courses on how to expand your creativity to online business!
 
We have joined with several artists and creatives to give you an online experience with different opportunities to learn how to expand your creativity and artistic skills.
 
*Open to all ages
 
*Open to all skill levels
 
*Access To Replay The Summit
 
*Upgrade to Get A Supply Kit and 12 Months of Creative Workbooks
I am looking for makers and artists that could do a 15-60 minute art or craft lesson Рutilizing the first 3-5 minutes to talk about you, your business, and what you have to offer.  I will be sending out a magazine workbook each month for premium attendees which will include some of my calligraphy workbooks and a feature of makers and artists (in rotation) each month with your contact information and offerings.
**this can be pre-recorded, it does not have to be “live”.
The deadline for your bio for the website and your video is May 30th.
If you promote and bring anyone to our summit you will get 40% of their registration.  After you sign up for a talk spot you will be given the link to share with your market.

Opportunity 2:  Consignment
We will be taking on consigners – makers – crafters to sell their items virtually in our store.
We originally were going to not take a percentage and instead have you give your time running the store (I.e. you could have sold your items and worked one Saturday a month in the store and kept all your retail sales) NOW we are going to morph into two sectors with consignment.  I DO NOT want to take a percentage Рit went against what my vision was Рto help you grow your business without taking any cut, but its financially impossible to do this without an actual retail store.
*Virtual Shopping Experience – we will feature items on our Facebook Page, Instagram, Newsletter and Website
*Retail Shopping By Appointment Only – we will set up this scheduling feature on our Facebook Page and our Website – we will promote it with all the social we can¬† (My dad will be handling the shopping experience for me – I cannot under zero circumstances break quarantine with my son’s health issues).
What we require from you:
*We have created a form/contract regarding your items (a from for what you submit, our policies, etc….nothing crazy)f
*We will take a 30% Commission from your Retail Sold amount (keep this in mind when pricing your items – you lose about 40-50 on Etsy by comparison)
*We will handle the delivery of the products (curbside pick up, shipping or delivery)
*If you have your own social media it would only serve you better if you share or tag your items – it will more than double your reach for your business and increase your opportunities – we will guide you through this
I have a program that will allow you to log in and track your sales Рallow me to pay you virtually and determine your analytics Рaccess will be gained after we have a contract in place.  You will also set your pricing in that portal.
If you want to start this process just send an email to me at¬†info@lettercreate.com¬†– subject line “consignment”

*Virtual Shopping Experience – we will feature items on our Facebook Page, Instagram, Newsletter and Website

*Retail Shopping By Appointment Only – we will set up this scheduling feature on our Facebook Page and our Website – we will promote it with all the social we can¬† (My dad will be handling the shopping experience for me – I cannot under zero circumstances break quarantine with my son’s health issues).

What we require from you:
*We have created a form/contract regarding your items (a from for what you submit, our policies, etc….nothing crazy)
*We will take a 30% Commission from your Retail Sold amount
