Paper Jam Press: Letterpress Posters
My business partner makes these sweet letterpress posters, so I made a little shopping cart site for her to sell them. I figured I'd pay homage to old-world craftsmanship by building the site from scratch in Notepad.

If your site is doing really well and you don't ned the following, then more power to you.

If you want a couple of pointers from the observer's point of view though, I have a couple of suggestions for the site that might help convert viewers into buyers:

People are paying here for quality. After all, with Photoshop and a printer people can knock up a passable poster. So -

Put a picture of the Press on the site. That way people know what they are getting is a product of the press - a picture tells a thousand words.

Show a real close-up photo of the print showing how the ink sits on the paper, and give potential customers a close look at the quality.

Hope this helps.
