Catholic Etsy Artists Guild

Who can join?

Catholic Etsy Artists Guild is a moderated team with the following requirements:

Team Policies:

1. TEAM COMMUNICATION-
We meet online through google groups by sending out informational updates from the Etsy Community, Church or Feast Day related events, and prayer requests and affirmations. We ask members to communicate with the group at least once a month. Posting in the discussions area is by thread topics.
Google Group:https://groups.google.com/group/catholic-etsy-artists-gu­ild-
2. TEAM TAG-
We use the tag teamcatholic to promote our members items through the Etsy search box. We ask that you have your items tagged and promote the tag in your shop announcement within one month of membership initiation, if possible

3. TEAM TREASURIES--
Members are encouraged to create team treasuries. We request that treasuries which promote the guild name, only include items from guild member shops. Anna at stairwayheaven11 [!at] gmail.com is our treasury leader if you have any questions.

4. PURCHASING FROM MEMBER SHOPS-
Our members have agreed to allow for an optional 10% discount to any active members of the group for the merchandise in their Etsy shop! If you plan on purchasing from a member shop, please inquire as to whether or not they offer the discount. If they do, please use the coupon code "teamcatholic10" to receive the discount. Please add the coupon code "teamcatholic10" to your shop when you join the Guild if you would like your shop to offer the team discount.

The team coupon code is for regular, noncustom listings only, and should not be requested for custom orders or already discounted listings such as sale, clearance, or pay-it-forward listings. Accepting or requesting the team coupon or other discounts on custom or already discounted items is prohibited.

***Please note that seeking extra discounts (apart from the optional team discount on noncustom orders), such as free shipping, upgrades, etc. from member shops is prohibited as it uses team membership as leverage for such perks. Members who violate this policy may have their membership revoked.*****

5. PROHIBITED ITEMS-
Our members will be sensitive to the fact that the Catholic Etsy Artists Guild is a family-friendly zone. Since, even among devout Catholics, there is a range of ideas on what is acceptable, please err on the side of caution. This means no immodest artwork/clothing, items with adult language, New Age, occult, or "mature" items of any kind may be posted in member shops. Our goal is for all Catholics searching our stores to be comfortable with the items we are selling!

6.TEAM BLOG-

A) Visit the blog! http://www.catholicetsyartists.blogspot.com/

8. OPTIONAL ADVERTISING-
During the year, there may be opportunities to help purchase advertising in Catholic publications. This is optional and more details will be provided as the deadlines approach.

9. SPECIAL TEAM PROMOTIONS-
Two times a year, a PIF (pay it forward) treasury event is held, in which CEAG shops offer discounted items. Participation in the event is optional. Team members may purchase PIF listings from each other, but seeking additional discounts not offered in the original listing, such as free shipping, upgrades, etc. is prohibited.



The CEAG is a wonderful place to share our Faith and love of the Church! Thank you for joining! :)

About this team

Our goal is to provide information and support to all Catholic Artists selling on Etsy. We are artists who live our Catholic faith in communion with the Church and its teachings. We may or may not produce art with Catholic themes but are expressing our God given creativity through our art and evangelize through our love and service to the community. We pray for one another and support each other in our endeavor to provide beauty and craftmaship in a world where commerce has lowered its standards and artistic value has been cheapened. Our products will always reflect the reverence due to religious articles. We will keep in touch through google groups.
