Original Post

I made one for me littleput.blogspot.com/2007/07/is-this-cheating.html
from my own work & am using it as a promotional page & catalogue.

To make your own poster go here www.etsy.com/poster_sketch.php
add your favorite shop items (cut & paste the listing id into the little boxes) in which ever order you like. Take a screen shot (apple shift 4 on mac, I don't know about pc) of the poster & tada!!!

You can imort the photo of your poster into word or text edit, add the necessary information & print it out to show the world (printing on photo paper makes it extra good).

I'd love to see the posters people create, if you have a flikr or photo hosting account link the thread, it is the best new tool on Etsy yet!

Great idea!! Unfortunately I already used my sketch to submit an entry and now when I go back to the sketch, its already used with my choices. (didnt know that would happen..) ...

I might do this with a treasury list sometime, just real quick and pop my items in just for a screen shot, and then remove them all ... and hopefully noone will freak out and say I am self promoting in those few minutes, LOL

Looks cool, thanks! I'll have to do that later.

(pssst...and thanks for letting me know about the mac screen shot as I never knew that, either)

:)

free2fly, you can edit the other items out of your poster sketch tool.

Free, can you edit & replace? I had a few things in there from one I was creating & just changed the item #s. It worked fine.

Neat idea!

I submitted a poster through the sketch tool and I was able to go back in and do it again with stuff from my shop (did not submit though).

Do you suppose they are planning on leaving that poster tool up after the contest is over, btw? Hope so.
