I am DEFINITELY 100% NOT reviving this underfed, dusty old blog as part of my 2019 resolutions, but what I am doing is trying to get more organized, especially when it comes to the business aspect of my art practice.
Vending at art & craft fairs all around the country is a big part of how I survive off of my art, and under the table at every show is my handy little ledger in which I list each print sold, Yes, I know that I can upload an inventory to Square and the app will do that for me, but I have always been and always will be a predominantly analog, pencil-and-paper kind of gal. There are a lot of calculations to make when determining whether or not a show is successful, and lots to keep track of when it comes to paying your quarterly sales & use taxes. So I made a handy sticker header to slap at the top of each new show entry in my ledger, making it easier to find crucial information when reporting sales & paying taxes after a show.
I thought maybe another maker/vendor out there might find this helpful. There are 4 labels to a sheet (standard US Letter size, each label is approximately 4"x2"). I recommend printing 'em on full-sheet sticker paper :)
See you in 2022, when I am most likely to write another blog post!
