I ran across another etsian crowhavenstudio (http://www.crowhavenstudio.etsy.com/), who made stained glass window panels with photos in between two pieces of glass (featured to the left on this blog). I thought that was really a cool idea, and then I thought, how cool would it be to her put one of my images (I'm a graphic artist also and do photoshop family collages and fantasy images for fun) into her stained glass window panels. Then, going off on a tangent as I often do - a lot - , I thought, it would be cool if she would collaborate with me, to put some of my graphic pieces in her stained glass and sell them on etsy. She is not currently able to make that happen, but it made me curious as to how many etsians collaborate with other shop owners. When you think of it, there are so many d-listers who could collaborate to make some really cool things.
So, I did some research and found some interesting articles on collaboration. I'm sure there are many other resources for collaborating on etsy, and intend to keep looking, but for now... this is what I have found....
There is a section in the etsy do's and don'ts page that mentions collaboration:
Here are some examples of collaboration teams:http://www.etsy.com/storque/handmade-life/an-international-crafting-fairytale-824/ (love this one)
Anyone else have any experience in collaboration?
