      Details - PLEASE READ

      Inventory sheets will need to be filled out and updated when entering or removing artwork. 

      Download Excel: YOURNAME-SAA-shop-inventory-spreadsheet.xlsx

      Download Instruction PDF: gallery-shop-inventory-instructions.docx

      • On a device with MS Office, simply click on the form link above to download the spreadsheet file.
      • On a Mac without Office, click on the link above. It will open in "Numbers". When it is open you will notice you cannot use it yet. Hit the download icon in the top right corner. This will bring a little rectangular window to the bottom left of your screen, as when you download anything. If you click on it to open it, it will automatically switch to the "numbers" program. The spread sheet is now workable for you to use. After completing the inventory, you then "share" document with shop@salemarts.org - but a little window pops up asking if you would like to convert it back to the original excel form and the answer is YES
      • On an iPad without Office, you can download Apple's spreadsheet program - "numbers" - if you're running IOS 11 (as of this writing).  Then proceed as above for a Mac. Alas, Apple no longer supports new installation of Numbers for older versions of IOS.
      • Microsoft Office also offers IOS apps for iPhone and iPad and Android. 
      • If you do not have a spreadsheet app on your device, you can use "Google Sheets".  Just save the spreadsheet to your device, go to "google sheets".  Start a new blank sheet. click "File->open", then "upload" and select the saved file. 
      • If you really cannot produce a spreadsheet, you can click here to print this form, then fill it out and someone at SAA will create the spreadsheet for you.



      • Artist: Type your full name in the box next to Artist (replace instruction text).
      • Initials: Type your initials in the box - e.g. Mary Elizabeth Jones = MEJ.  This is also the first part of your inventory ID,  (replace instruction text).
      • Inventory ID: This is your 3 initials, then a dash, then the item number (001, 002, 003, etc).
        • Each unique item MUST have a unique inventory ID. DO NOT GROUP DIFFERENT ITEMS ON ONE LINE.
        • For example, Jane Elizabeth Jones with three pieces in February would be:  MEJ-001, MEJ-002 and MEJ-003.  BE CAREFUL TO BE CONSISTENT WITH YOUR INITIALS.
        • If you already have inventory in the shop please refer to you previous take in form to continue numbering where you left off.
      • New Quantity: Enter the quantity of the item you are submitting
      • Category: select “Shop”
      • Title: Provide a title for each item. This information will be displayed on tags and online shop with your name.
