At long last I am super excited to annouce Confidential Print Shop is open for business and printable art is first on the menu. I have actually had the shop set up for months, but I was feeling extremely anxious about hitting the publish button on this post. I’m not entirely sure why, but it most likely stems from a fear of failure. Truth be told, setting up a storefront and selling something that is uniquely yours and not made by someone else, is terrifying. Because what if no one cares? What if everyone hates it and never buys a single thing? Does that mean they don’t like you or your work? Is it a reflection of how the public perceives your taste level? As a design professional, this is a monumentally difficult hurdle to jump because the answer is probably yes.
Somewhere along the lines I guess I decided that while failure is possible and maybe even probable – that my dream has been to have a store for longer than I can remember. So hitting publish on this post is something of a success, by it’s own right, right? One small step for… someone, a giant leap for Rayan.
So please, pretty please… go forth, browse and purchase all of the downloads so you can print yourself a glorious gallery wall filled with travel photography, abstract art and even some digital versions of my very own handpainted creations. Because I really truly don’t want to fail and because everyone needs some pretty prints to hang in their spaces. We can consider it a Win / Win, no? Maybe? Pleeeeaaaassseee?
I will be adding more digital downloads each day and I am currently working on getting my digital paintings up for your printing pleasure, so check back often! The downloads are extremely hi res and will allow you to print large format or scale down to print for a more petite purpose. You are welcome to crop them as needed and use these digital downloads for your own personal use, in anyway you like. I can tell you that some of the art makes for wonderful home decor (see bedding here, a pillow here, a framed canvas print here and all kinds of amazingness here) as well.
I will be publishing instructions, tips and some of my favorite places to print, frame and create your own decor, so stay tuned for that. I may simply link to this info on the product pages (I haven’t decided yet) so it may not roll through the main site feed. Another reason to check back often… Yahoo!
