Great ideas ibib & Hollowchigo. Keep them coming people. I figure this could be a useful brainstorm for other members and Graphic River as a whole.

I have already sort of covered this with an earlier thread and other people commented as well this should help you comment and bring it back to life!

Well first would be to get a blog, twitter, etc

DeviantArt is a really good one but if you new to it and you only going to put up GR stuff it is probably a waste of time as people are not really interested in it, and they get poor page view compared to other files but as i had built up my traffic to my DA before starting on here it has helped me alot and i tend to get 40 visits to each item a day for DA

only really way to get amazing traffic is to create amazing items that people will want to visit!

One of the best factors for traffic is also your key words if the are relevant and spelt right will help you a lot.

You’re quite aggressive man. Don’t you think that’s a little rude to say like that. It’s all up to authors what and where they want to sell their items. (no offense) Now as for the topic of this thread, I would really doubt if GR would try to do anything like this. The point is: Will making a new marketplace for vectors would help them getting more sales?

Sorry man i re worded it to be less aggressive, than my first try.don’t want to offend any one, but if you are take a long hard think and ask youself are you on this site to make money or to produce art that you personally like which does not puts clients needs/wants in mind!

Gr are only going to do things that make them money as vectors don’t sell very well, so spending money setting up on there own site would not really work.

well at least 90% of them don’t any way at it harms the market place having it full of things with no sales. It makes it hard for user to find relevant things to there search if they have to go through all the vectors which may cause them to leave

This site is for making money so people want to upload a few high quality items that sell well, the best example of this is “webtreats” very few items but pretty much highest sales on GR

whereas some vector people upload huge amount of items for very few sales.

I think unless the vector issues is addressed in say a year it will be out of control and could have huge impacts on the site will neely all items being vector

on the other hand there are a few vector artist that produce truly amazing work, they should not be put off!

You’re right, the safe zone should be smaller. My apologies for that. The updated version, with correct safezone: Update

Amazing stuff i have it noe, it was the only thing putting me off creating a bossiness card as i am from an internet background!

I guess the middle 90% is for text content,

the next box is the text safety box

and the last is the bleed

Many thanks for tanking the time to create the template

Hey there!

To help you out here’s a business card template in psd format. Just an empty PSD with the right dimensions etc, including bleed lines (and text safety lines, but these don’t listen as narrow – just my personal preference):

Business Card Preset – Mediafire download

And yes, the business card will print the correct size.

I just downloaded this and the bleed marks seem really big or it just me?

A very similar thread has been started just last week link bellow

http://graphicriver.net/forums/thread/separate-marketplace-for-cliparts-vector-illustrations/24303

The fact that there is very little to no need for 90% of the vector made on the site is the issue i would be up for them leaving graphics river as they just clog it up and make it hard for people top find thing they might actually buy!

don’t want to offend all you people that make vector but if you one of those people that upload 40 vector for every 1 sale you get Please stop!

But i do think the vector are blocking up this site as so many of them have no sale

I think the vectors piggy back of the popularirty of graphics river as by them self they dont sell that well, well some do but the majority have no sales!

If they made a site for it i don’t think it will do so well so it not really in envatos interest!

I must say from all my experience on the site i have never had any issues with any reviewers,

i have only ever had one item rejected and it was simply because i had rushed and not put enough thought into the item

I never did said the advantage of having reviewer being authors, which is they have a good level of skill and are in a good position to decide the quality of items.
