How do you manage your inventory?
Wear and tear on inventory can add up pretty quickly [and that’s] something that can be problematic about setting up a whole shop and then tearing it down and moving everything. Wear and tear does happen on things which means that with prints, usually at least once a year I’ll go through and re-bag everything. The print itself is fine and the card stock behind it is fine, but the actual bag that it’s in just gets so worn and dusty.
After Salmonfest everything was so dirty. I was worried that I was going to lose a lot of inventory after that event, but thankfully it was just stickers that had dust around them and I just re-bagged a lot of my prints. All my canvas prints I had to spray with a hose and wipe down, but they’re very durable which is nice. At my art show at Middle Way somebody spilled salsa on one of my canvas pieces.
