Is that how we lived then? But we lived as usual. Everyone does, most of the time. Whatever is going on is as usual. We lived, as usual, by ignoring. Ignoring isn’t the same as ignorance, you have to work at it. Nothing changes instantaneously: in a gradually heating bathtub you’d be boiled to death before you knew it. There were stories in the newspapers, of course, but they were about other women, and the men who did such things were other men. None of them were the men we knew. The newspaper stories were like dreams to us, bad dreams dreamt by others. How awful, we would say, and they were, but they were awful without being believable. They were too melodramatic, they had a dimension that was not the dimension of our lives. We were the people who were not in the papers. We lived in the blank white spaces at the edges of print. It gave us freedom. We lived in the gaps between stories.
The main example used here is posters (and other print items for simplicity sake), but I do mention other items and what I talk about here applies to pretty much all produced products (posters, mugs, key chains, bookmarks, comic books, etc.)
Here’s some advice based on my own experiences and research.
8″x10″ posters are usually at least $10 and up. Posters Larger than that are usually at least $15 or $20 and up.
For a larger poster $45 can be perfectly acceptable especially if the content is particularly fantastic or detailed.
The exact amount really depends on you, art level, size of poster, printing costs, printing method, etc. Don’t under price your art, but don’t expect to sell a lot of and 8″x10″ print for $50 a piece unless your art is really frickin’ spectacular.
[Original art (not a print, an original, like a physical painting or sculpture) are a different story. Original paintings and the like can go for larger amounts, but your only selling the individual painting once. This will focus more on production of multiple prints and copies.]
How do you plan on selling these? For physical copies, if you’re not going to be at a convention or booth, online there’s
to consider. Will shipping be an added on cost or will the poster price be higher and shipping free? (If you’re doing free shipping make sure to put that where it’s well visible. People always like free.) Also make sure to account for overseas shipping which can be way pricier.
Also consider deals. Buy 2 get 3rd 50% off can help encourage people to buy more and raise your sales, but you have to willing to sell your product for that price. Other deals that are common are Buy $X or more and get free shipping, Buy X# of products and get free commission doodle or bookmark or other little trinket (doodles can be requests that you post on your blog rather than physically ship), Buy full set for $50(instead of the $60 it would cost to buy them all separately), and other things in this vein.
Are you going through a site where you never actually touch the product (ie. RedBubble) or are you handling all the printing and shipping yourself?
Online Sites and 3rd Party Vendors: If your going through a site that handles all the production and shipping it can be good since it’s very hands off. On the payment side though here are some question you need to check:
hello there darlings~ shouta, eijirou, katsuki and toshi domestic headcanons with their wife and kids please? *W* i need more domestic and fluffiness of these 4 on my life <3
Usually does the cooking, he doesn’t mind since his family enjoys it
Packs all the bentos for the family
Cleans the house while they are running errands or away
Often cuddles with his spouse for relaxing and lets the kids play
Aizawa brought home some cats for the kids to play with, they all adopted the cats and named them
Eijirou playfully wrestles with his children’s, sometimes they imagine would him as one of those rock walls (get it? His quirk is hardened, okay I stop) as they are climbing on him. Eijirou plays pretend with his kids everyday, and he enjoys seeing them adventurous.
He isn’t the one to cook, however, he will learn several simple delicious dishes and serve them for his family with the help of a cook book. There is times where he mixes incorrect measurements and what-not. Eventually he gets it.
Surprises his love with some breakfast-in-bed with a side of heart-shaped cookies, decorated with dots along side of the edges and his name printed in sugary pink frosting.
Daily routine: A fun time, at least Eijirou makes it out to be one as a father. The children, his spouse and him often turn up the music for the cleaning/laundering motivation. He isn’t the one to let them do most of the dirty work, either. As a man, it’s a necessity to be held responsible for his leftovers, etc.
He most certainly preps all of the dishes for his family and his chef skills are at its excellency. Their expression triggers a prideful feeling in him as they kept devouring it. He may occasionally let his spouse or children help.
Daily Routine: Everyone in this house has a specific type of job. One of his kids might be the one vacuuming while the others dust, fold laundries, etc. His lists are of what they are comfortable doing, and if they nominate to do that task then that will be their job for awhile. There’s no arguments here. Organization is a must.
Takes his family out on special occasions. Usually they all would participate in roller skating, ice skating, tickets to a football play, etc. Generously pays for their snacks/food too instead of his spouse. This is schedule on every Friday or so.
After a long day at work, Bakugou comes home to be tackled by his children’s and collapsing into the ground in defeat! They all understand his exhaustion, so they agreed to either have movie nights, calming leisures or play games (in which Bakugou gets competitive and his spouse chops his head repeatedly to shush).
Daily Routine: Toshinori is usually the one who is vacuuming the living and around those areas. His children’s don’t have to clean much since they are assigned to clean their rooms. His spouse also helps Toshinori clean the living room or cleans the kitchen since it’s their domain. Otherwise, they switch it up.
His spouse is usually the one prepping dinners for them, they tend to switch it up however. One night his spouse would cook, the next night Toshinori would cook. He thinks it’s reasonable to do this after all.
Toshinori dresses up his kids before they go to school. This is his way of spending time with them and wishing them a good day at school, whether the hero route or college. Doesn’t matter to him as long as they follow their dreams.
Toshinori comes home to see his children wearing similar clothing of his superhero outfit everyday. They all pretend of fighting villains (ironically, Toshinori becomes the villain in this scenario). His spouse becoming the ‘victim’ and his kids are the ones portraying as heroes. One day they will be great heroes too.
