Post How To Make A Shop ~ HarryLove13 Style

Making an Avatar/Signature Shop is very simple you can follow these steps:

  • Think of what you want to create in your shop. (Avatars, Signatures, Profile Backgrounds, Images for other things, etc.)
  • Once you choose one (or more) think of what you can do in that area. (Avatars: Hug-A-Celebrity, Animated Moves, Decorated BABV Characters, Name Designs, Drawings, etc.; Signatures: Names, Ads (For Shops, Clubs, Trading Posts.); Profile Backgrounds: Search for Requested Images, Make Your Own Designs, etc.) It is best not to use websites that are image generators because they are very common and unoriginal, everyone wants to order things that are new and that haven't been seen before so feel free to try one of your own ideas.
  • The next thing you need to know is if you have the right programs or software needed because you may only be able to do some certain things on certain websites or programs. Those websites/programs could be:
-Paint
-Paint.net
-Adobe Photoshop
-Gimp
-Glitterfy
-& Many Others

You may need to download these if you don't have them and need them or if you can't come up with other options.
  • Once you have everything you need make some examples if what you offer to give your shop some color and to attract attention. You can make more than one so people can see a variety, don't forget shops are only limited to 20 pictures so you may want to put some of the same type together.
  • Once your examples are done and you have made a sort of fill-put form for customers come up with a creative name for your shop, use your own name in it, a shop about something you like (such as mine), or anything you think will attract attention. Sometimes you may want to use words like:
-Sale
-Special
-Limited Time Only
-Brand New
-Never Before Seen


To attract attention you can even capitalize the whole word to attract major attention.

  • Once you have your shop name, your pictures, and your forms you PM or VM pandyma618 or kelleysunshine with your request to start the shop so it can get approved. You can start a new thread in the Avatars and Signatures! section in the Virtual Sandbox once you get your shop approved. Remember you are limited to one shop per person! If you want to share your shop with someone ask them and it can be a partner shop.
  • You can make your shop look brighter by bolding words, using different colors (except red and blue), changing the font, and making the text larger.

Good Luck with your New Shop and I Hope You Get Lots of Customers Soon!
