    Stephen Stookey

    Sell Your Work Without Selling Out!

    Tapping into the print on demand marketplace using pearls of wisdom.

    Come join us to discover the world of Print On Demand wall art with Stephen Stookey.

    Dr. Stookey, is a university dean/church history professor at Wayland Baptist University and an ordained minister by day and photographer by night. Stephen captures visual stories from locations of natural beauty, historical importance, and spiritual significance. Stephen operates Stephen Stookey Photography, an online print on demand business.

    “Print-on-Demand (POD) companies offer artists the possibility of online revenue streams with the ease of outsourced production, distribution, and customer service. Artists face a plethora of POD providers and product choices. Finding the right fit for one’s studio is essential to a positive online POD experience. Stephen has tamed this territory and offers us a streamlined down system for navigating the print on demand platforms.

    He has found ways to, indeed make a good living from them. He will share his secrets, his cautions about time wasters, and his insights on how to create a path for ourselves in the print demand scenario that can bring us income. This presentation, alone, features incredible, artistic work but also a perfect opportunity to figure out whether or not the print on demand marketplace is our cup of tea. He works with fine Art america,, and several other POD platforms.

    1. Understanding the POD marketplace: vendors & products; pros & cons

    2. Strategies for starting a POD business

    3. Understanding what sells in the POD marketplace

    4. Strategies to help buyer’s find you: pricing & promotion

    5. Sales opportunities generated by POD presence”

    Stephen’s POD annual income supports his work & travel with global ministry organizations, funds family activities, and pays for equipment upgrades–all of which make his CPA (wife Beverly) very happy.”

    His images appear in publications and Hollywood productions and hang on the walls of businesses, homes, and high-end hotels.

    April 11th!
