Easter Greeting Cards

 

What a frustrating MONTH on Zazzle.
Both Firefox (latest update) and Internet Explorer crash during Quick Create. Is anyone else having issues with their internet browsers?

I had started a thread in their support forum but this thread and other similar threads only show that many designers seem to have this problem.

I am currently using Google Chrome just for quick create but it is getting slower and slower 😦

In December 2014 (six weeks ago) I had ordered four coffee mugs from Society6. They were running the usual Christmas promotions and I could get four mugs for the price of three. Still pretty expensive for photo mugs that you could also get in offline shops around every corner or online in a gazillion other cheaper shops but hey – I admit that I only wanted them so that I could brag “Hey, this is my photo on this mug!” and recommend Society6 to my friends and family.

Ok, so it took them six weeks from USA to Germany, of which one week is courtesy to German customs since there was no invoice on the outside. I had to send them infos about the order and about the payment (print from Paypal) and I am really lucky that I did not have to pay taxes!

Anyway, when the parcel just arrived, you could already hear what was going on inside the cardboard box. Let me show you a photo of the inside:

I didn’t know that I had ordered a puzzle!

At first glance the fourth mug looked ok but that’s not the case. It is full of scratches from the debris and the handle is loose. This one won’t survive the dishwasher.

The reason for this chaos is the really poor packaging. Well, poor doesn’t even really cover it. Stupid would be more suitable. The only good thing is that they used one sheet of bubble wrap per mug. But the box is so huge (twice the size the mugs would have needed!), the mugs bounced around and had a party.

Great, really great. This disaster will definitely not convince me to order from Society6 again. I have filled out their form for such situations and asked them for a full refund. I could ask for a new delivery but I do not want to wait 6 more weeks for a second puzzle matching this one. No, thank you.

What are your experiences with Society6 as a buyer?

While October had almost 40 sales, November had almost 60. Let’s take a look at them 🙂

December 2014 has been a very successful month over on theKase with a huge variety of designs being sold. I also had three returns which I hope are not due to my designs. I have heard/read that the print quality in the shops is not always the best.

Anyway here is an overview of what I was able to sell on theKase in December 2014:

I’d definitely wish for more months like this one! 🙂

May I present: The first of three pretty crazy Christmas months on Zazzle. My first Christmas with a royalty rate of 30% and let me put it this way: It was worth it! I did not earn less, I did earn a LOT more than the years before ^^

Let’s see what I was selling during October 2014, shall we?

So is there a term like “salesgasm”? I think I had a few ^^

Twelve sales in one month – wow, just wow. December 2014 was by far the best month so far on Cafepress for me. I love it. Adding products to Cafepress can be a pain in your backside but a little time invested can earn you money. Not as awesome as Zazzle but decent.

Let’s take a look at the items I was able to sell:

Not bad, huh? That’s almost $20 in one month by the way 🙂

After a few slow months during summer, theKase really skyrocketed during the last few months of 2014 and surprised me with decent earnings. I am really glad it is working out well now, just like I would expect it. Every month seems to have one or two best-selling designs which can change in the following month. It’s still a mystery to me why one design can sell 20 cases in one month and none in the months before or after. Since theKase also has many offline shops, maybe they randomly put certain cases on display for that one month and switch to other cases in the following month? That might explain this phenomenon.

Anyway, here are the sales for November 2014:

As you can see here, the Isla Saona case has been extremely popular for a few months. I did not expect it to be successful for two or more consecutive months but it’s still being sold. The other cases have been popular before are just starting to become popular.

I do not want to link to the same case designs repetitively in every post, if you are interested in my designs please just click on the screenshot above to get to my theKase profile.

During December 2014 I have sold 4 items with 3 sales, the first item you will see here was purchased twice by the same buyer.

This makes December the best month for Society6 so far which is no surprise due to Christmas shopping. I am looking forward to more sales on Society6 in 2015.
