Sign Up for a Sampler Box from Portraits of Animals

What's in the sampler box
What’s in the sampler box

One of the things I”m most excited about offering on my new website is a subscription box I’m calling a “Sampler Box”.

It seems like gift box programs are popping up everywhere. The idea really appealed to me because unique handmade things sell best when I can get them literally into people’s hands. I’d considered setting up a gift box program with just my artwork, like the “monthly print” or greeting card samples, but the thought of putting together boxes each month in addition to all I’m already doing just made it seem impossible.

However, a few other people suggested I do this, including a local friend and small business marketer who’s been helping me with organizing and promoting my business, and I decided it was something I needed to try. So I looked at what I have to offer and came up with a few gift boxes containing my works as a sampler whether you are a new customer or you’ve been following me for years.

My new site, Portraits of Animals, contains all the artwork I sell, and I roughly divide these audiences into four parts: my feline followers from The Creative Cat and from years before I began blogging, those who have been following my career as a landscape artist, those who are my wholesale customers and resell my art and merchandise, and most recently animal professionals who use my animal-themed greeting cards, art and merchandise in their everyday business.

I’m offering a Sampler Box with a single box or a three month box subscription to each of these groups. Each audience will receive the following items with items appropriate to the audience:

• an 8” x 10” print matted to 11” x 14”, ready to frame OR a small framed print, either an existing piece of artwork or a new one

• two or more greeting or note cards, current designs and new designs

• a handmade or other gift item—a small keepsake box or a little art sampler book, a polymer clay or ceramic item, screen-printed dishtowel, tote bag, crocheted item or rubber stamp, new art paper, for instance

These can be things your use for yourself or give as gifts or donation items to shelter or rescue or other fundraisers. Sometimes they’ll be little experiments and I’ll be asking for feedback. I’ll be happy that you get to see art you may have never noticed, and little handmade goods that work so much better in your hands than a photo on your computer. (I also have a Sampler Box just for Animal Professionals, visit the Animal Professionals page on Portraits of Animals to read about it.)

Sign up for your Sampler Boxes

Sampler boxes can be purchased singly or in subscriptions for three boxes. Shipping within the US is included. You don’t need to sign up for an account to sign up for a sampler box subscription, but I’ll need to know which Sampler Box you’d like to receive, for feline artwork or other fine art and merchandise, or if you’d like to sign up as an animal professional or wholesale customer.

$25.00 for one box

  • one matted print, regular value $25.00
  • three cards, regular value $7.50
  • one gift item, average value $15.00
  • regular total value about $47.50

$75.00 for a three box subscription

  • three matted prints, regular value $75.00
  • nine cards, regular value $22.50
  • three gift items, average value $45.00
  • regular total value about $142.50
