Give aways and goodies

Day 19 of my advent calendar, my X-mas card and you can win a sample set

This draw is closed. Thank you for participating!
Today you can win a discovery set from my line: Just leave a comment and you are in. See the fine print below for details. Good morning from Zurich!

Here, the first thing I did was checking some track and traces and Hurray! at least the urgent shipments to Germany got there; pretty fast. A relief in a year where everybody tells me (including me) that never before was the shipment so troublesome. Whoever was affected: I am so sorry, but I think it will all work out before the holidays.

The good news: for the US I have a new solution in place. Now. This is important as it is one of my strategic goals for 2016 to upgrade, and to become one of the best stops for shopping Tauer. You know: It is like if you buy directly at the farmer…. the margin stays in the house. And the margin that goes into the “chain” is large.

The other day, I was looking into solutions to sell some of my paintings, not prints, but the original artwork; one reason is simply because I got too many by now. And doing so I realized that I can do “your price is mine”. The idea is: You sell something, tell the buyer the minimal price (can be 1$) and the buyer pays what she/he thinks it is worth. I did some reading about it and learned that usually the price that clients pay is fair, and often even higher than what the seller would have hoped for.

This is water on my mill. I always say: People are good, generally speaking, and only a few will ever cheat you.

I have shipped many samples this year, with payment after the client got the samples. And all except one paid. Thus, yes, … people are maybe even better than we think.

Anyhow: I decided to use the winter landscape in acrylic for our private holiday greetings card. I print these myself: Every year a different theme.

Fineprint: we pick a winner using The discovery set ships from Zurich, Switzerland. And wherever you live, local taxes, VAT, and import fee may apply and are not covered by Tauer. The winner is responsible for making sure that they are allowed to import the prize. The draw is open for anybody, but winners from these countries should provide a mailing address elsewhere: Italy, Russia, Spain, Croatia, Greece.
