For the Artists
Wondered how to get your work in Macandmor?
This is the page to help you. We want you to get your work in front of the world. Yes, there are some hoops to jump through but we are on your side and we will make this as easy as possible.
Number One thing - Our goal is to get good quality work in front of customers. By 'good quality' we mean good artistic skills and techniques, good, true, clean substrates, high quality paints/inks/printing methods, well finished, professionally presented with labels and packaging where needed, and all copyright issues considered by you and attended to. So if your work falls short on any one of those things, work on it and then talk to us.
Number two thing will seem a bit inconsequential next to Number One thing but it is about running a smooth operation.
Number Two thing - you must have an email address that you monitor and interact with. Sure, you are entitled to have some philosophical objection to email but it will mean that we can't do business. We need a reliable way to get the same message quickly to a widely distributed team ('team' being all the artists that create the overall Macandmor experience).
Number Three thing - we are a team all trying to get more beautiful art appreciated by our customers. You'll be asked to do some things aimed at helping the whole team from time to time.
Facebook user? We expect three things from you:
- that you will 'Like' our page
- that you will comment on our posts (a couple of phrases is enough)
- that you will do you own posts about your work in Macandmor and tag us in
