Some small changes, Graphic Design.

Since setting up evajeanie in Jan 2011 I have been in a constant battle with myself as I also have and love my graphic design business, until now I have seen myself as a Graphic Designer who makes handmade items, but I can now see that this approach is likely to be detrimental to both businesses and what I need to do is join them up.

I have thought long and hard about this and for the first stage of this new venture I will be introducing more screen printed items that I have designed in 2D and hand screen printed, these can then be embroidered, I will also be printing my own designs onto fabric to create some really unique work. Also alongside this you will be seeing much more of my graphics work, on my blog and in my notonthehighstreet shop.

I will also offer my graphics as a service to other creative and handmade businesses, people who need help with designs or just print for business cards and flyers and all those things you need to get the message out there to buyers. I can do the online stuff too, banners and buttons for example, but can also set up a blog and help with social networking (if this is something you need please email me) evajeanie email as it would be good to know if there is any interest.

It just seems madness to have two successful businesses that could work so well together, why should I fight to keep them separate when bringing them together I can offer so much more, I hope you agree and I would love to hear your thoughts.

Hi Lindsay,

Just thought I would say hello as we are both textile-y people and both sell on noths - though somehow I've only just discovered your work but it is lovely! Anyway, good luck with the merging of your two businesses, sure it will be a good step forward for you!
