I’ve been wanting to put my artwork on Etsy for quite some time now, and as of a few days ago, I’ve finally taken the plunge. I opened my store.
Although the process seemed pretty straightforward when you decide to open an Etsy shop, but I wanted to become a legitimate business. So I had to get all of the legal and tax documentation out of the way, which means:
- Getting an EIN
- Filing a “Doing Business As” (DBA) Fictitious Name
- Purchasing ad space at a local newspaper to announce the commencement of Kimposed
- Getting a business tax license
- …and all that other fun stuff
Once that was completed, it was smooth sailing! I scanned all of my works and the store was up and ready to rock within an afternoon. Check it out: the Kimposed Etsy Store
Go ahead, treat yo’self!
