The Etsy Venture - Christmas in July (incl. 50%-OFF coupon code)

It might be sweltering hot outside, at least when you live in the northern hemisphere, so it's time to think cool thoughts. I don't know about you, but focusing on winter and snow is supposed to help and while it doesn't quite work for me, maybe the idea of snowflakes and mistletoe makes you want to get out your mittens after all. Of course that wish could also stem from heat-related hallucinations.

Maybe I know something else that'll get you into the mood for hot cocoa and cookies! Think Christmas ... in July! After all, it's never too early to get started on those Christmas prezzies for friends and family, and I've got a real treat for you that'll make preparing for the gift-giving a tad easier!

All through July you get a whopping 50%-OFF your purchase of $50 and more. Before you start frowning over the amount you need to spend, think of the savings first - all you need to do is fill up your Etsy basket with at least five of my digital image file downloads, put the CHRISTMASJULY13 coupon code to good use and tadaaa ... you only pay $25 for five images or $30 for six, etc. And you might not want to wait all that long before putting the coupon code to use, because this offer is only available for the first FIVE ORDERS after which the code will be deactivated again!

Now you might argue that those are just digital files and no actual thing you could wrap up and give to your wee granny. You are a keen observer, aren't you? How about some suggestions of what to do with those image files or rather where to put them on ...

Framed Art Print (for friends who just moved and still got plenty of empty walls)
A Stack of Notecards (for your aunt who only sends snail mail)
Bumper Sticker (for your rowdy brother)
Drink Coasters (for your grandpa the wine aficionado)
Kindle Sleeve (for your best friend, the bookworm)
Tote Bag (for your Mom who constantly frets over torn paper bags while grocery shopping)
Apron (for your Dad who is the master of BBQ)
Key Chain (for your hard to gift co-workers)
Puzzle (for your nephew who can never sit still)

See the possibilities? These days you can have your picture of choice printed on countless items that'll make amazing and unique presents. Of course you can just stick to the traditional art prints too, that is entirely up to you. 

All you have to do is decide on what exactly you want to create and send off your printing order to one of the many online printing services which will deliver ten times faster (and cheaper) than buying an actual print (or whatever your heart desires) and don't we all hate the hassle with international shipping which does not only take a while, but can be prohibitively expensive even for small things? And if you don't want to come face to face to your mailman, save the files on your USB-stick and head to your nearest store that offers printing services. Good enough for your vacation pics? Then I bet it'll be just as great for, say, a lovely art print for your cousin's baby-girl nursery!

Still not convinced? Then check out my shop on RedBubble where you may buy actual cards, prints and the like. Sorry, no coupon codes available for that one though!

And now ... happy shopping!
