Dave's New Website & Paper Model Tees!
« on: May 24, 2017, 11:56:26 AM »
I have been wanting to update my website (Dave's Card Creations) for sometime.
It really was in need of a facelift and some changes.
I especially needed to modify the KoolWheelz and Free Models sections.



I also had a couple of new things to add...like my "exclusive Paper Model Tees".

A while back I had the idea to work on some designs for paper model related tshirts.
I also had some ideas in mind for my own models and self-promotion.
I've already created some shirts with my own models on them...and I'm working on a few more designs.



Recently my Daughter expressed an interest in going to Washington and visiting the Natural History Museum.
She also shares my love of Military aircraft and wishes to visit the Air & Space Museums there too.

I was looking forward to the big Ajax/Toronto Scale Model show in October to promote Paper Modeling.
But now that show has been cancelled, and I am re-interested in attending the fall paper Modelers Convention.

I'd like to combine the IPMC and Museum trips into one trip with my Daughter....
but as usal, it all comes down to funds.

All my model sales through www.papermodelshop.com and www.ecardmodels.com are for hobby related expenses.
Those funds will definitely help towards a trip, but I don't think its gonna be enough.
Unfortunately I haven't been releasing many retail models...with the recently released Saladin model being the only new release this year.
Big thanks, byt the way, to all those who have already purchased a copy!

And so thats why I have decided to go ahead with my tee shirt fundraiser and set-up an online store just for that purpose.
Teechip is a site where you can create your clothing designs and retail them in a teechip store.
My website links to that store from my Tshirt page: http://davesdesigns.ca/cutandfold/html/t-shirts.html


Please check out my tee shirt designs...see if there's something you like...and maybe help me (and my Daughter) get to Washington this year.
Or just pick up a model....that would help too.

FYI
YOu can view and purchase the paper Model Tees in my Techip store.
Click the link at Dave's Card Creation (Tees Page)

Click on any Tee design in the store to view it and order.
make sure you check out the available shirt colours for each design.

You can also choose a Size that fits.

Prices vary a little becuase some Tees have front and back designs.

Shipping is fast and the shirts look brilliant!
Yes, I already purchased one of my own shirts to judge quality and shipping.

If you have questions, just ask.
If you  would like to see a different design, let me know.
If you would like to see a design on a different item of clothing or colour, let me know.

Would anyone be interested in Coffe Mugs and/or Phone Cases?
I can put my designs on those too.

Campaign ends in two days?

How much would the coffee mugs run?
There are no strangers in this world ...
Only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet

"Campaigns" are how you sell things on many sites nowadays.
Idea being, that these are fundraisers and for limited amount, limited time lengths.

Teechip uses a campaign to control production and shipping.
Orders are processed, manufactured and shipped at the end of a campaign.
You set a duration for the campaign, and a goal of how many items to sell within the campaign.

So, the common practice is to set shorter campaigns, and set them to renew/restart.
The "campaign ends..." notice causes many buyers to grab it before it ends (even though it isn't really ending)

I am using short campaigns so shirts will be shipped sooner.
Teechip doesn't require you to meet the goal of the campaign, they will process a single order.
And this way, my buyers don't have to wait a long time for their order to be processed.
