The new Shop Wild Ozark URL is https://shop.wildozark.com/
I’ve finally gotten most of the art, prints, notecards, and pigment products moved over to the new Shop Wild Ozark location. I’m sure there might have been an easier way to do it, but since I wanted to redesign the whole thing, I didn’t want to export/import the listings. So I’ve been moving them one product at a time. Now everything except a few of the works and the artist business spreadsheets are relocated. I’ll be moving the other things soon.
The only thing on the new site is the ecommerce store. The blog and everything to do with my original Wild Ozark website is still here. I may eventually do away with the other domains I’m trying to keep up with and just redirect them to here. Still undecided about that, because those sites are somewhat different than this one. It would be a lot of work to incorporate those here. So maybe I’ll just leave those alone.
Here’s the link to go to the art category of the new Wild Ozark Shop: https://shop.wildozark.com/product-category/art/
Aside from the URL, it’s the way products are categorized. And I’ve tried to make a more cohesive look and structure to the whole store. The new Shop Wild Ozark starts with the various categories of things I sell. Each category has a tile with the category word on it. All of the art is under the “Art” category. Now, instead of having to search for prints or originals, each image has all of the options listed as variations. The first part of each listing tells the details about the original work, and whether it is still available or not. Even for sold originals, prints and notecards are usually available. And they’re listed as options in the spot where you choose what ‘Style’ you want.
I included the details about the original, even where it isn’t available any longer, mainly for continuity in how the listings look. It also shows the history of each of my paintings and especially size. Size matters if you’d like to order one of the print/notecard bundles. Everything is available as a 5 x 7″ print or a notecard, but smaller paintings are not available as larger prints.
Examples of Listings at the new Shop Wild Ozark
Here’s one, for example, that still has an original available, but no tea towels or NFT. Because this original was 9 x 11″, that means there won’t be any 12 x 16″ prints available for it. To make the print larger than the original often results in a poor quality image and I don’t like to do that. For some things, like posters, it doesn’t matter so much. And I do have some customers who still want the larger print even if it reduces quality. But they’re not listed and to request it you’d have to email me.
And here’s one where the original is no longer available, and there is no NFT:
Possible Broken Links at the old Shop Wild Ozark and WildOzark.com site
As soon as I’m finished moving the straggler products over to the new site, I’ll be deleting the entire ecommerce section at WildOzark.com. I’ve had my blog for so long that there’s bound to be some loose ends. Please let me know if you find a broken link if you’re clicking around there. I’m trying to put forwards on everything that I delete, so that your screen should automatically go to the new listings.
That’s it for today’s post! I just wanted to make the announcement that the move is pretty much completed now. It may take some time before Google and other search engines re-indexes everything. So a visitor landing here from a Google search might be wondering where to go next, if they were looking for a specific item. I hope that doesn’t happen, but if it does, please shoot me an email and I can direct you to the item in question 🙂
