Birth Stats & Bribery

Did you know . . . that I have an Etsy store?

You probably did, because I have been blogging about it and facebooking about it and instagraming about it and pinning about it and . . . . no, not really tweeting about it, because I kind of stink at tweeting.

Did you know . . . that I am now selling the ever popular birth stat subway art?

You probably didn’t, because this is my very first mention of it.

I give all credit to the genius behind selling this to Jen over at Team Bowen. After winning a giveaway sponsored by my Etsy shop over at another blog, she then went on to order some custom birth stat art from me. She’s kind of awesome like that.

So since I started selling on Etsy, I have had a lot of people wonder what the difference is between cut art and print art. Besides . . . you know . . . the price.

The post that I usually send people to for a point of reference is the one about Quinn’s Nickname Art. But that has become a little bit outdated. Mainly because I have gotten better at using my Silhouette.

The difference between the cuts and the prints is really hard to distinguish in photos, but in person it is glaring. The cuts just have a level of depth that the prints don’t. Don’t get me wrong, I love the prints too, but they just don’t compare to the cuts. I would always give a cut as a gift, and I only make the cuts for the art I hang in my kids’ rooms. They are more time intensive, because they involve a great deal of production time beyond the design work. But they are totally worth it.

So here is where the bit of bribery comes in.

The first person to comment on this post gets 75% off in my Etsy shop. And granted, I would love for you to write a glowing review of what you purchase {COUGH}, but that is entirely up to you.

And if you didn’t make it for the first comment slot, head over to Jen’s blog. She’s doing a special feature on Humming Bird’s View today (because she’s awesome like that), and has a special code for 30% off.
