Tips and Tricks: It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Pinterest

August 14, 2013

Many artists have taken up the challenge of marketing and promoting using one of the Internet’s newer tools, Pinterest. Since savvy artists are working on their Christmas cards, here’s some inspiration for you as you create your new designs.

Collection of Christmas Card Boards
There are lots – and we mean LOTS – of pinners out there pinning their favorite Christmas cards. You’ll see everything from store bought to hand made, which will give you a really good idea as to what consumers are actively seeking when it comes to their Christmas cards.

Collection of Hanukkah Card Boards
When we design Christmas cards, we also keep the Jewish holiday Hanukkah in mind. On these boards, you’ll find greeting cards both store bought and handmade specifically for Hanukkah. Lots of inspiration here.

Christmas Decorations
This collection of boards is filled with inspiration for colors, patterns, and other cool stuff related to the holiday.

2013 Christmas
Another collection of inspirational boards centered around this year’s holiday season.

Edited to add:
I had created a group board for anyone who wanted to pin Christmas cards, but after getting clarification from Pinterest directly,  it looks like the only people I can invite are those I’m following or who are following me – as in, I have to follow all your boards and you have to follow mine. This wasn’t made clear in Pinterest’s instructions on how to set up a group board. I apologize for the confusion and I’m withdrawing the offer. Not that I don’t like you guys, but I’m sure you’d rather not be forced to follow all my boards just to get pinning privileges to a single group board. Sorry!

      We never set up a business account. We pin lots of other stuff to Pinterest besides greeting cards, so we have a regular account. But yes, on the group board, feel free to alter the source URL on your pins to include your artist ID#. If you don’t know how, this article will help:

      I’m having a big problem trying to add you to the board. Pinterest doesn’t seem to know who you are, neither your name Denise Beverly nor your business dbvisualarts are coming up when I try to send you an invite. What email address did you use to set up the account? I can try that instead.

      And you can email me privately with the info: gcucommunity @ bigdates.com

    I go by the name of Judy Adamson (surprise, surprise!) on Pinterest and here’s the url: http://pinterest.com/judyadamson/ – hope it works!

    Thank you, Corrie 🙂

    Sorry, ladies. Looks like it’s not going to be possible to add people to a group board at this time. I’ve edited the original post to reflect this new information.
