I have to get some opinions on this. This has been bothering me for some time, but I haven’t been too sure on how to ask so I will just…..ask.
How do you handle it when people ask for a cut file (die-cut) and they say they will show you how they used the die-cut, but you never hear from them again? This has been happening to me since I bought my Pazzles machine almost 2 yrs ago. Actually, this is the reason I took down all of my free wpc files because no one would provide a link or photo to how they used the files. I guess this is just a pet peeve of mine.
It just seems weird because when they ask for someone to make the cut file they seem like they “desperately need the file” for a project that needed to be done in a short time frame (which in turn makes me take time out and get the file done for them in short order).
I keep telling myself not to do free files anymore for anyone (unless I add them myself in my time frame), but I guess my personality won’t let me stop J.
Is it too much to expect that people will provide you with a photo or a link to the project so you can put it on your blog? Am I being selfish for wanting to show how I helped them with their project(s)?
