I am posting this for a friend:
SVG Cutting Files is looking for enthusiastic, talented and friendly designers to join in on our Design Team!
DT APPLICATION STATUS: CURRENTLY OPEN
Deadline October 1, 2012
We have a LIMITED amount of spaces available, so please make sure to send in your BEST work to stand out from the rest!
Please read the GUIDELINES below so you know what would be expected of you if you are chosen to join the SVG DT Crew!
(Submit your application at the bottom of the page!)
Design Team Responsibilities
Since we are a start up company and just establishing a Design Team, the following guidelines are just that: GUIDELINES for what we hope to accomplish. We may change things around as we grow and find what works best for us.
At this time, we are NOT doing any challenge for the site. At this time we just want to get completed projects of our designs out there and to get our DT more established. Once we get this well underway, we will begin doing bi-weekly challenges for our new releases and promos! Hoping for a Challenge blog to start early 2013!
Good pictures will make your projects look their best. Please ensure that your photos are clear and the entire project is visible in the photo.
When posting your project (blog, facebook, twitter, etc) please include a link back to SVG Cutting Files in the body of your post.
When creating your projects please limit the use of other company’s products. We understand the need to use other companies products to enhance a project, but since we are trying to promote SVG CUTTING FILES, we need to make sure the main focus of the project is using one of our products.
Please check in with SVG group often, as this is where all information and updates will be posted. (link will be provided upon approval to DT area)
We are working as a TEAM, so please be helpful to all with any questions, suggestions for feedback. We can always allow for room to grow.....
Think out of the box. Our fans will want to see different ways to make things using our files, so if you have a brilliant idea to make something other then your normal style...GO FOR IT!
There is NO Sharing of files with one another, or anyone else. We are more than happy to provide the files to you for FREE, but please make sure you do not DISTRIBUTE them in any way shape or form! This is a violation of our TOU.
DT members choose their committment level to the DT. Sign up for what you KNOW you can deliver on (1 a month, 4 a month, etc)...we will work it into the schedule!
GETTING YOUR FILES
I will post previews of the new files that will be available for you to work with in our DT area.
Image files will be given out on a first come first serve basis, with a rotation of first choosing, so everyone will get first choice at some point.
If the file is a theme collection and has multiple files to it, you can choose 1-2 files from the collection to work with.
You will be assigned a day of the week for your deadline (see more info below in Deadlines section)
Upon completion of your completed project, you can request your next file(s) on your designated day (see rotation schedule and release dates in DT area)
Please INK, CHALK, etc your project pieces in the areas needed to really make them POP through a photo....sometimes our designs have many multi layers (hair) and unless they are INKED or CHALKED you do not see the full dimension of the layers.
**I will give as much notice as possible on new releases and dates so you can get your schedule assigned quicker and you can start working on your projects.
It is the DT's responsibility to get their project in on time. There will be a schedule, so there should be NO QUESTION on when your due date is.
All creations should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org at least TWO days prior to your due date.
Meeting design deadlines is important to be a successful DT member. When a DT signs up, we ask for your committment level. We do not PUSH for more than what you originally agreed to supply. However, we do know that LIFE happens, and there will be times that you are not able to make your deadline. We ask that you PLEASE give us as much notice as possible if you are not going to make a deadline, so we can have another fill in or make other arrangements.
Vacations or other time off? Not a problem. Please let us know as soon as you do when you need time off. We can either get files to you SUPER SUPER early so you can create before you leave, or we can find a temporary fill in for you during your absence!
We would like to include AS MUCH information as possible about your project. Please make sure to include any vital information in with your design (ie:cut file from Svgcuttingfiles.com, papers from suchandsuchstore.com, etc) Providing the information allows others to recreate and get the same look/feel as you did when making their projects!
SELLING FOR PROFIT?
Not only do we allow this, WE ENCOURAGE IT!
If you need to make extra income and want to sell your finished project for profit, then by all means, do so!
All we ask, if you sell on eBay, Etsy, or any other marketplace, that you make sure to credit SVG CUTTING FILES in your listings as a source for the files.
6 MONTH END OF TERM FOR DT
Our DT will run for 6 months. At the end of your 6 month stint, we will open up a DT Call to replace you, IF YOU CHOOSE to move on.
If you ever need to resign from the design team BEFORE the 6 months is up, please give us a timely notice so we can open up the DT to find your replacement.
Immediate removal from our DT will result if we find you to be sharing or selling our files or if you have missed more then 15% of your deadlines in your 6 month period.
SVG Cutting Files reserves the right to remove you from the DT at anytime without notice.
SOCIAL NETWORKING & PROMOTING
Gotta admit, this is my LEAST favorite part to do, BUT ITS THE MOST IMPORTANT!
I am not a Facebook, blog, or twitter girl. I dont really get into the whole social networking aspect (mainly because I am creating!)...but its a NECESSARY part of the business.
It WILL be necessary for you to help promote the site and our files. If you own a Facebook account, we do NOT expect you to blow up your personal page with our products, but we DO ask you to post on OUR page. If you think your friends and family would be interested in what we do, then by all means, post on your own personal pages too!
When posting (facebook, twitter, pinterest, etc) please make sure you LINK your project to the actual FILE for the product in our store. Makes it easier for a customer to find it! If you do not have a project that day to post, we ask that you still participate on your 'off' days and comment and tweet on your fellow DT members projects, as well as any fans too! All it takes is a few words, like NICE JOB to accomplish this. :)
If you do not Facebook or Twitter, but have a BLOG instead, we ask you to do the same (post and link to the actual product page in our store) OR you can link to our Fan page of the finished designs of your fellow DT.
Help spread the word about our Facebook page to your friends, family and fellow crafters as much as possible. This will aid in our success, and in turn benefit you as well.
sign up before our deadline of Oct 1, 2012
Then submit an application to see if you make the cut!
Please have the following information:
Full name, Address, Phone Number and Email Address
Date of Birth (year not necessary!)
Links to your Blog, Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, Etsy, etc pages... (so we can follow and LIKE you too!)
Submit 3-5 photo samples of your work. Please make sure at least 1-2 submitted are using SVG Cutting File products (don't have any? Try some of our FREE files!)
Tell us in a paragraph, why you want to work with SVG Cutting Files.
If you are on any other design teams, please let us know about those as well.
