to feature your art or photography
as Ecards on our two websites
We are striving to form a community of nonhomophobic artists who
can showcase their work in a very affordable way. We are looking
for nonpornographic designs in all mediums, that will fit into
our vertical Ecard setup. If you are an artist or photographer,
or if you know of anyone who would like to join us, please feel
free to contact us by using the form below.
Why have your art or photos on Ecards?
We feature all of our artists' Ecard links on both the Amazing
Dreams Publishing Ecard Category Page, and the Category Page of
our sister site - Lesbianecard.com.
We have an ongoing marketing campaign for both sites, and we are
receiving over two million hits a month to our websites from over
150,000 visitors. On the average, each of our Ecard artists receives
between 7,000 and 10,000 hits to their Ecard page per month. When
you think about the recipient of these Ecards, it doubles the
people per month who will see your work.
Our featured artists who have their own websites, are reporting
a significant increase of traffic to their sites which are linked
from their Amazing Dreams Ecard and Biography pages. More traffic
means more exposure of your work, and more sales.
What is included?
Our artists get 15 to 25 of their designs setup on their own Ecard
page with a separate biography page. Both pages will have links
to the artists' website and/or CafePress or online store.
Every month or so, we will switch out your sample designs on our
two Ecard category pages, and also move your design to different
positions on those two pages. We do this so that the Amazing Dreams
and Lesbianecard.com category pages feature different designs
for people to use.
After your web pages are setup, we will include your information,
with links to your pages and your own website, in our newsletter
which goes out to over 4,000 women. We do this when our artists
first come onboard with us, and any time that they submit new
Ecards for our special holidays, like Mother's Day, Pride Month,
Halloween or Valentine's Day.
You may choose to have a photo of yourself on your biography page,
or we can set up the page with an additional sample of your work
Your biography page will also include links to your websites and/or
What is the cost to show my work in the
Amazing Dreams Ecard Galleries?
Our Ecards are basically to help women worldwide find out about
our artists' work. It's a nice exposure for our artists, and it's
a great reason for people to return to our website over and over
again--a total win/win situation for everyone. Because it is a
win/win situation, our online galleries are totally free for both
artists and the people who visit our website and send Ecards
The only thing we require is that you follow our guidelines, and
provide us exactly what we need to set up your Ecard and biography
biography and images will be included in our gallery for free
as long as the images are submitted to us in the following format:
320 pixel width by 402 pixel height and not bigger than 80K
Some horizontal designs can be cropped to this size and still
look great, or you can make more Ecards by using parts of
your artwork. See Janine's
Ecard page for samples. All designs must fill the
entire 320 pixels width by 402 height. We will not accept
designs with a white border.
you send us images that are not the above size, or you do not
have a way to scan or submit your images, then there will be
a $10.00 per image crop and resize fee. Please see the paragraph
below titled: If you don't have a way to submit samples via
the Internet or Email.
Please note: We expect all of our artists to be courteous,
and mindful of the fact that we are a small company, and it
takes time to schedule in any extra work. We are providing a
free service to help you show your work to the world, and we
will not tolerate any demanding or rude behavior.
To start the process
Using the form below, please send us your website address where
your images are posted. If you do not have a website yet, please
contact us by using the form below for an email address where
you can send us 3 JPGs, no larger than 80K with the subject
Sample Ecard Art from YOUR NAME
If your art is approved:
If your art is approved for our Ecard sites, then we will want
you to submit a total of 15 to 25 JPGs at the size listed above.
Please name the images what you would like them called on your
Ecard page, and use lower case letters with no spaces. If
you image is called Rose at Dawn, please name the JPG: roseatdawn.jpg
For the biography page, you may use a JPG of yourself that is
the same size, or we could set up a few JPGs of your art if
you are uncomfortable posting a photo of yourself. If you are
showing your art or have won awards, you may include that information.
We usually go by first name only for our artists, but you may
choose to have your full name in your biography.
We also need a small paragraph about you and your art that
will also be used to announce the acceptance of your work in
To get an idea of of how to set up your biography page, please
feel free to look at some of our other artist's biographies,
or you can check out the biographies of our artists Private
Pink and Mandy here:
Submitting your designs and biography
If possible please load your biography, 15 to 25 of your images
with a few extras sized to the above specs, to a private page
on your website. Loading images to your own site cuts down on
our email being tied up in downloading all of your files.
If you do not have a website yet, and you need to submit your
files by Email, then your images must be JPGS only, sized to
the format listed above, and they must be under 80K each.
For your biography, either type it directly into your email
to us, or you can copy and paste it from your Word Processing
program into the email. Word documents have A LOT of formatting
tags, which takes too much time to remove them for HTML code,
so please copy and paste your biography directly into an email
so that we can quickly set up your pages.
If you don't have a way to submit samples via the Internet
If you can not provide the above file formats but you have photos
of your designs we can still set them up, but there will be
a scanning and cropping fee of $10.00 per image, 15 image minimum.
Please send the check for $150.00 plus $10 per additional images
over 15, made out to Amazing Dreams Publishing, your photos,
your contact information including your name, email address,
or daytime telephone number, and a SASE to return your samples
