    I am a freelance artist/designer/painter/illustrator, still not quite sure how I should define myself. Anyway, I have over 300 original hand painted watercolor designs, very elegant, very commercial as well, and I have off and on over past ten years been printing them myself selling them to friends a few local stores. Clearly not making a profit.
    I am currently wanting to submit my art to various greeting card, and stationery companies.
    But most of the submission guidelines are to have a URL, a website more or less, or at least they say is very very helpful. Let me cut to the chase, what is the first thing I should do in getting my stuff prepared to submit and hopefully in my wildest dreams being accepted by one random company? Do I make a website first, is that the key to have especially for companies to refer too and for myself to look more professional? Or do I wait on spending money (which at this point do not have tons) on a website and just take good pictures, or scan to high resolution JPegs and put them on a disc and email the disc to these companies or do I do or need to do both?
    A few companies out there say you can send actual samples of your cards, but also say include your URL as well. I am so confused on this whole process, and what I should be focusing on first.
    Any advice?
    Thanks,
    Whitney
