I Aaaaalrighty then, as my most admired childhood animal lover would say.
So I've grabbed an EIN, Employment Identification Number that is, for the tax side of things and learned a bit more about how all that works. I can file taxes for the year come 2020, however after that it's a quarterly tax requirement. Now don't take my word for it do your own reading as you should know.
Now I'm thinking TurboTax Quickbooks is the next step. It's like $17 a month which is pricey as hell but if I cancel my music subscriptions I can swing it. I've also started keeping my material business receipts, which is something I've never even payed attention to. I've ordered a few print examples from Nations, Mpix, WHCC, Vistaprint and Giclee. I loved Mpix for photos especially the metallic finish. I realized later on that Nations, Mpix and Vistaprint are more for photos and I wasn't as comfortable using these for any art prints. It may appear to be obvious but I thought surely these places might offer card stock print options. WHCC and Giclee ended up being a better option for online art prints with different paper options suited for using on matte board. And WHCC had the most beautiful finish but I tried for 2 hrs to get their uploading nonsense to my computer and realized if it took that much effort what else could go wrong in future ordering situations. I ended up loving what I received from Giclee. I can comfortably matte these images I ordered and feel confident in the quality I received. Oh and I chose Vistaprint for my business cards and bookmarks. Those haven't arrived yet though.
Tali-ho to whomever ends up feasting their eyes on this nonsense!
