    Different product, we are selling limited run wall art prints, not images on pillows and tote bags.

    They all look like they've been photoshopped btw.

    Both.

    Yes I will try to offer greater choice, would be all the better if some of the photographs have a story behind them.

    All the photos can have a story behind them. doesn't have to be a big story. A single paragraph about the car and owner can be enough

    Hi Mike, I did consider going into other areas but I'm into cars and feel there's enough of a market of car enthusiasts out there so plan is to stick to the car niche. I won't be giving up the day job this is a hobby that has a business angle to it so I'll be happy if it ends up selling 1 print a day, any more is a bonus.

    Is the photographer a partner in the business or do you have to pay him?

    I have only very quickly scanned through the other posts here. Just dropping in to say I've visited the site in my bookmarks a couple of times recently and the addition of the 'All Prints' option in the main menu is a huge improvement. I immediately know where to click after landing on the website, feels much more intuitive than the previous set up.

    Nice shot of the Bugatti at prescott hill climb.

    For people that can't find their own car on there, its pretty clear there are no shots of bangers.

    As the core aim of the business is to support independent automotive photographers, we are paying a royalty for each print sold directly to the photographer. No I am the sole owner of the business.

    That's good to hear thank you, the full range is on the home page also now to make it even easier to explore the collection. As Fiscx said, why make it difficult, let people see your products..

    Starting to look really good.

    Try some split testing with the ‘all prints’ as the home page.

    A couple of things I would change;

    Remove the "100 of 100 remaining" if I look through a few and see that on everyone it makes me think they're not very popular and subliminally think they can't be very good then.


    Give people a choice of what print number they want
    The T-Shirt company I mentioned earlier in the thread do this
    It also gives you the option of holding some numbers back, or even greying some out which gives the illusion they are sold ;-)

    Great ideas fisicx and UKSBD - thank you.
    • I will try A/B testing as we are starting to get some decent traffic now and have made some sales after 3 months of graft :)
    • Print number is a great idea, I'm discussing with my developer how we can make this work without it being another product variation (already 45 variations and this would become 4500) so need to find a clever workaround.
    • Perhaps the 100 of 100 remaining could be replaced with "Pick your edition" or something along those lines.

    Looks clean and the gold gives it that high end feel. The gold could do with being a shade darker to increase readability.

    You need some better pictures I'm afraid. I just bought one from historic car art where there is a much better selection.

    Have you checked to see what Google thinks of your site - your page insights link is https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/?url=https://www.limited100.co.uk/&tab=mobile - it's not good in terms of what Google thinks of if.
    I would not use Shopify in a million years - but hey ho - if you want to use please carry on. There are better / less expensive options.
    As a side issue - I have a friend at Cadremont who makes the picture mounts and backing boards that you use to frame the images etc. Give them a shout the next you need to re stock - they use conservation level mountboard and will beat any like for like price

    Not sure if anyone else has mention this... but... perhaps it's just me? :)

    Wood Frame

    White Wood Frame

    Black Wood Frame

    With all due respect, sounds cheap... for such a "premium" product, you should be framing them in quality wooden frames, tell people what the frame is made from...

    White Wood, Black Wood makes me think cheap nasty balsa wood or pine... a second thought rather than I'll frame it in a nice Walnut, Oak or Ash frame... it's a premium product, showing some nice vehicles why put it in a cheap frame?
