I’m looking to sell things like banners and business cards. I design them, then they’re printed through a service like Vistaprint.
Obviously this requires 2 phases. First, me taking a couple days to design. Then Vistaprint taking a couple weeks to print and ship. How am I supposed to do this? I can’t make revisions after it’s printed and shipped. So, the simple solution is just to make the proof and message the buyer for confirmation to continue. What if they don’t respond? I’m stalled and the clock is ticking. Or, if the buyer decides they want a revision after it’s shipped? Or God forbid they cancel after shipping and they get the banner they want payed out of my pocket? Maybe some of this is factored into the shippable items? Never done something like this so I appreciate any advice.
