I design about 80% of the window drawings in the shop, but in May 2017 I started with collections from other brands, to make the assortment more diverse (there’s only so much I can do). It has become a fun mix of big brands and small illustrators, check over here who (went before you).
What a collaboration entails is that you grant Window drawing a license for non-exclusive use of the designs for % of the sales (stated on the agreement). Note! The shop sells printable designs that people print at home and trace with a chalk maker, these are not physical products.
Let’s break it down
• Raamtekening.nl/Windowdrawing.com creates non-exclusive use of the design for printables. You will of course keep the copyright and that will credited on everything: photos, product description, printables, promotion on social media, etcetera. Where possible you’ll also be tagged and/or a clickable link included.
• Raamtekening.nl/Windowdrawing.com will be exclusive in selling the designs are window drawing printables. So you’re not suppose to offer it to your own or another window drawing shop.
• We start with a collection of 5 to 10 designs and we both like it, we can expand.
• You will receive you % of the sales each quarter.
• The agreement is for a year with tacit renewal, but can be canceled by both parties via email at any time.
• If you like, you can receive the printables so you can draw it on your own window or give as gift to someone. Pictures of this are great, as I can use them to promote and as examples in the shop.
• Promotion on your own social media channels is appreciated but not required (to do on a regular base).
I, as the shop owner, will promote the window drawings (on social media) and when possible, you and your products too. For example, like I did with the Happy Autumn leaves window drawing by Teken-ing. At the bottom of the page you can find a link to the products in her shop.
There’s also a private group on FB for the designers. Here I post requests from customers, general questions and news. Very practical for me and a good network opportunity for you.
What I’m trying to say is that we as small business need to help each other. When you’re doing better, it’ll translate to my shop too and vice versa.
