I have a question for you...

As I mentioned in the previous post, I will be adding Personalized Labels / Stickers to my Etsy Shop within the next couple of weeks. I have lots of different designs in the works, this label is just a mock-up sample. My mind is running around in circles as to how I should offer them; digital download or printed?

So if I may ask you clever sweets to think about this with me for just a moment:

If you were a potential customer wanting labels, would you prefer a digital download of them personalized for you so you could print them out on your own sticker sheets, etc. printing as many as you want, any time you want?

Or, would you prefer to purchase them printed from my color laser printer in which case you would be purchasing by the sheet with 20 or so per sheet?

I must admit, I am very fond of selling digital downloads as there is no shipping cost to the purchaser and it's as fast as a few clicks of a button. But, I'm also aware that there are lots of people who don't have quality printers that produce images, etc. that they're happy with.

Hmmmm, what to do, what to do. Perhaps the obvious answer is to offer both options.

Just thought I'd put this little question out there to see what you think, thanks so much for taking the time to answer. ;o)

Hi Sweet Dawn:

I am all for the downloads because it does save on shipping. I love this idea for the labels. I use lot of labels in my packaging for my clients so this is a fabulous idea :)

Hey Gorgeous. As usual you are being a 'Miss Smarty Pants Creative Creator' lol :-) I think you should offer both digital and printed sheets. The digital files buyers can use on anything they wish, eg, business cards, letterheads, (whatever their little hearts desire) and print them out themselves and they don't need to pay for shipping costs. The sheets are also a great option for those that don't have a good printer as you said and need a good quality product so they won't mind paying the shipping costs. It's all business. Great ideas Dawn. Bet you're head is going to explode soon like mine, lol. KABOOM!
