Dear Fellow Artist & Artisans,

Over twenty-four years ago, a group of woodworkers joined together to share information and exhibit their talents to residents and visitors of Mendocino County. After taking a break for few years, we have re-formed as a collective of woodworkers, to exhibit and share our skills with the millions of visitors to the World Wide Web as MendocinoWoodworking.com. Since our debut in May of 1999 we have had over 44,000 visits to Our web site at www.MendocinoWoodworking.com.

Realizing that there is a need for a "web hub" for other artists and artisans, we have also registered two commercial domain names which will link to a new home page for Mendocino Artists and Artisans. The address is:

............ www.MendocinoArtists.com / plus your name
You can also have a Dot Com name that goes directly to your pages at MendocinoArtists.com (ex: www.Fagerskog.com )

This site exists to benefit ALL artists, craftspeople, and artisans in Mendocino County. The site has many different categories.

They are:

Painters ...........................  Weavers ............................... Photographers

Jewelers ............................. Potters ..................................Tile Setters

Fabric Artists .................  Sculptors ............................ Beaders

Stained Glass ..................  Graphic Artists ............... Calligraphers

Glass Blower ..................... Metal Artisans ................. Candlemakers

OR ....... ??   Any other Art or Craft

 

We will add any new category that our members feel is necessary to promote our skills, trades, and businesses in Mendocino County.

Each member will have one main page with text and small photos, called "thumbnails". After the "visitor" views your text, and finds out who YOU are, they can then click on the small photos; they are then transferred to an enlarged version of this photo of Your work or project. This gives each participant 7 web pages ...... 1 with information and 6 with photos which will help represent and inform your client base about who you are and what you do.

Most, if not all of our potential customers and clients NOW have the ability to visit the Mendocino Artists & Artisans.com from the comfort of their homes.

If you already have a web page this site will still benefit you and your client-base due to the very large volume of exposure we will receive. Of course, your MA&A home page would hyperlink directly to Your "other" web site.

Our goal is to create high exposure, with a simple, yet elegant and inviting Site, whose sole function is to promote YOUR work and business. There will be no advertising. Each member will have their own personal web address ............ here are 2 examples:

www.MendocinoArtists.com/JohnJones ........ or www.MendocinoArtisans.com/JoanSmith

We believe so much in this concept, and its future, that we will help design and build your personal site at NO CHARGE, with No Deposit ....... and there is No "Catch".

The site is FREE to Mendocino Artists and Artisans at the MA&A Site.

I am paying for this site and MendocinoWoodworking.com because I believe in it!
IT IS REALLY FREE ..... NO CHARGE for YOU!! ..... or anyone !!

I hope some day you will ask us to build you an even larger site on the Web!!
AND ............
I hope to provide an Online Gallery for Our members in the coming months ( with a commission of "around" 10%).
This will help to insure the future existence of an Artists site controlled by Artists

We have launched this site with a few members , who are premiering it's beginning, which is being constructed for the benefit of the artists and artisans and is Not for Profit ..... except the "profit" you will realize by expose on the WWWeb

If you think you might be interested in this concept and would be interested in YOUR own web site, please fill out the enclosed registration form and mail it back at your earliest convenience. If you have any questions or suggestions please give me a call at 964-0635 (evenings Please)

Our members will finely be abe to experience the benefits of exposure on the World Wide Web ........ what do we have to loose? ..... except control of Our destiny!

I hope to hear from you soon. Please share this with another artist or artisan. Thank you for your time.

My regards,

Brian Lee

Next ........... sit down and write a description about you, your work, and your business.
.................
PLEASE Email me your text and include a copy with your photos

What would you like Your Future Customers to learn about you .... your trade, your craft, your expertise. Provide us with whatever text you would like on Your Web Site, with up to 1000 words. PLEASE Email me your text and include a copy with your photos.

Next ....... Provide us with SIX Photos or slides of the work you wish displayed on Your Web Site. Internet picture resolution is Not as critical as the print media, due to the fact that a monitor has less resolution then print. A good "snap shot" will look just fine on the Internet. The size is not as important either ......... the magic of computers changes your photograph into 1's and 0's that can be enlarged, reduced, & manipulated quite easily.

Upon visiting Your Page ........ the Visitors will see Your text and 6 smaller versions (2"x 4") of each photo .......... and will then be invited to "click" on smaller photographs to view a full size rendition of your work.

All photos will be returned (Please include stamped envelope). Please indicate which of the 6 photos is your favorite ....... this will be the "rotating" picture.

Call me if you have any questions (evenings preferably). It will take time to build each site ........... so please get us your info as soon as possible ........ Thanks!
