Greetings! In this blog, I wanted to tell you a little about the AHP Etsy store. Etsy has been around since 2005 and has been the e-commerce site for handmade goods since its inception.  In 2013, they changed their terms and conditions to allow selling manufactured goods.  Etsy went public in 2015 and has more than 50 million members.  I started thinking about re-hosting my website last year and decided to put my toe in the water on Etsy late last fall.  My daughter runs a successful hand crafts business through her Etsy store.  It’s called Kristy’s Creations and I encourage you to visit her store.  She does terrific work and can do so much custom work that is not shown on her store.  Well worth your time to check it out.

Anyway, back to AHP, I knew it would take me a while to develop a new website in WordPress.  I decided I didn’t really want to tackle learning how to implement an e-commerce functionality right out of the gate which is why I tried Etsy.  My Etsy store has the same galleries as you’ll see here.  Every photo here has a direct link to that same photo on Etsy making it easy for you to navigate.  

Sizes & Finishes

You’ll have 3 print size options that are selectable: 

  • 5″ x 7″
  • 8″ x 10″
  • 11″ x 14″

You’ll also have 2 finish options: 

  • Lustre
  • Glossy

I have my photos printed by Bay Photo on archival rated photo paper.  I love the quality of their work.  I have all prints shipped to me first so I can be sure there are no issues.  It doesn’t happen often but occasionally problems occur and I’d rather find them first rather than have you be the one to discover them.  Assuming everything is fine, I’ll ship the photo out to you.  

You might be thinking, “What if I want a size other than the 3 standard offering sizes?”  I’m glad you asked!  Simply send me a message either through the About Me contact form here on this website or use the Contact Shop Owner button on my Etsy store and send me a private message.  Tell me what size you’re looking for and medium you might like.  I’ll get back to you within 48 hours with a custom quote.  No obligation of course.  If you want to proceed, I’ll create a custom listing on my Etsy store for you to order your photo.  Easy-peasy!  I have printed several photos on metal prints for our own home and they look great!  I have also printed on canvas wraps which also look great.  Check out Bay Photo’s site for a complete listing of their products.

That’s it for this post.  If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to me.  Thanks for you support of AHP!
