Jammy: a revolution in online arts & craft...
We would like to introduce you to our exciting new website. It’s attracting a lot of attention. Jammy has been set up by an artist for artists! Jammy = maximum exposure + minimum commission, ensuring most of the profit is paid to the creator, which is where it belongs. Jammy is a proud member of the Buy NZ Made campaign and is a showcase of New Zealand’s finest and most creative arts and crafts. Viv McCormick, the driving force behind Jammy, is a self-taught artist from Nelson, specialising in glass panel paintings. The idea for Jammy began as a vehicle for Viv to sell her work online. “Traditional ways of selling art take a substantial slice of profits and valuable time. Several friends expressed their wish to sell their work online too and the idea snowballed from there."
Right from the start, key members of the arts and craft community in Nelson embraced Jammy’s concept. Now artists and craftspeople from all over New Zealand are a part of Jammy’s online revolution.
Jammy is different from other websites in that the creator is in the “driving seat.” How does this work? The contract of sale is between the artist and their customer and payment is made direct to the artist via the Jammy shopping cart. For this we utilise the services of PayPal, a leading provider of real-time credit card processing and is recognised and trusted by customers all over the world.
Jammy is fresh, polished and inspiring. By joining the e-commerce revolution, artists and craftspeople throughout New Zealand can increase sales by providing existing customers with online shopping and attracting new customers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Pooling New Zealand’s best creative talents together under one umbrella will bring Jammy to the attention of customers all over the world and enable artists to share established customers.
Our on-line shoppers will have the satisfaction of directly supporting New Zealand’s artists and craftspeople and the knowledge that the majority of profit stays with them.
Jammy’s mission statement;
“Jammy helps artists help themselves and in the process enriches the lives of art and craft enthusiasts” Art and craft enthusiasts can also browse through our free interactive sections (For you, For your Children, For your Home) containing a wealth of creative ideas. We welcome contributions to our interactive sections so that all of us can share Jammy’s “wealth of creativity online."
