Nice Art Prints is now closed.
I'm deeply thankful for the opportunity I've had to work with you. Each order was a privilege, and I'm grateful you trusted me to print your images. Closing the shop has been a difficult decision to make, but I'm confident it's the right choice.
From the beginning, I strived to make a better online print shop experience by providing complimentary test prints and personalized service with each order. Creating a profitable company with those goals and only one printer and one employee (me), proved to be impossible without substantially increasing the prices. In plain English: I don't make enough money to pay myself. Not a good business model!
Every small business is a lot of work, and each small business owner deserves respect for the sacrifices they make. Some people thrive in the high-stress environment of small business; some don't. The thrill of creating something is intoxicating, and I let it drag me into an unhealthy lifestyle. My health and relationships suffered significantly. After honest evaluation and conversations with people I trust, I've decided to close the shop. For those of you who are curious: Once everything is wrapped up and closed down, I plan to return to design and will begin looking for a staff job in product design.
I'm still glad I gave Nice Art Prints a try. It was actually a lot of fun! I'm thankful for the prints I got to make with all of you! This little print shop taught me who I am and what my limits are. It showed me what's important to me, and where I need to make adjustments in my life. I'm closing this chapter feeling stronger, more confident, and more hopeful than I have been in a long time.
Thank you for being a part of my Nice Art Prints journey, and please stay in touch!
All my best,
