Descriptions & Titles Critique: orangecatart

Our critique today is for orangecatart. The theme is descriptions and titles. Please post your feedback in the comments!


  1. I had Jill for a card exchange, so I can tell you these are nice cards!

    But back to the critique: I love the way you describe the places that these cards depict -- nice language, evocative, makes me want to go there! A few of the cards could use some extra description like this.

    I think for your tags, be sure to include cards and blank as tags to help people find these.

    You'd separated your shop sections by place. I think if I were looking for notecards, I'd appreciate being able to click on a section called notecards and have all of my choices come up.

    I love the Oscar (cat) notecard -- I wish you'd shown more images of the card, as opposed to the image of the various street teams you belong to. I know it's just the one card, but maybe show an array of the four that the person will receive set up in different ways?

    Nice solid work, though!

  2. Hi, Jill! I can also say that your cards are great quality as I received them too. You describe your products well. I like that you include in your description that some items are sold as sets and that the size is noted with your photos. I don't think the street team avatars need to be included. Maybe you can highlight something special in your photo instead to fill up the available photo space.

    A read a few descriptions and they were well worded providing sizes, paper used, where the photo was taken-that's great! I also like your packaging options! Nice shop :o)


  3. From what I have seen everything looks good. I like that your titles are short and your descriptions provide a lot of information about the items. One thing I did notice that you might want to change is you have shipping and return information in your both your profile and shop policies. I would think having it in your shop policies would be enough. Good luck with furture sales. Your work is wonderful!

  4. Thanks for taking the time to look & comment, ladies!

    I'm glad to know I'm on the right track with the descriptions. I'll look for the ones that need to be fleshed out a bit more, maybe make them a little more personal?

    And thanks for noticing my shipping info duplication, Terri. I think I can sort that out.
