The Secret Project Revealed!

Happy 1 year anniversary to Paper Doll World! I honestly can't believe that people are still reading this site, but I'm so grateful to everyone who follows, comments, and spreads the paper doll love. Instead of reminiscing about this past year, we're moving onward and upward, starting with the revealing of the secret project that I've kept up my sleeve since August. Are you ready?


That's right, pretty soon you'll be able to purchase handmade paper dolls and items from the official Paper Doll World online store!

The 2013 winter line is going to include about 3 (maybe more, depending on the time) different doll and wardrobe packs, a food set, and perhaps a furniture set. Prices will range from $3 to $5, so it's super affordable, and the dolls will remain blank so you can customize them however you wish. If you're interested, I may be able to do a few custom orders, but those will be a little more pricy.

A sneak peek at one of the doll and outfit packs. Of course, the final version will be fully colored.
My plan was to have the grand opening and launch of the 2013 winter line today, but there were some technical snafus and the products aren't going to be on sale for a little while. The problem is that I want to sell the dolls and items as PDFs that can be instantly downloaded, but instead of that being a free service like I thought, it will end up being $7 to $50 a month, depending on how many items I sell. If enough of you buy from the Paper Doll World store, maybe I can break even, but I don't want to put that kind of pressure on you. My current plan is to sell the products as PDF files, but wait until the payment registers in Paypal and personally email you the file. It won't be an instant download, but it should be pretty fast. If business picks up, maybe I'll upgrade to the instant downloading service. Your thoughts?

I'm so excited to finally share this with you! I'll post more pictures as time permits, but in the meantime, what do you think of this new aspect of Paper Doll World?
