Archive for April, 2019


Being a working mum with two lovely mini-mes has drastically limited my screen time. Four years ago, I had almost endless hours free time to create new items on a vast variety on print on demand websites. But it changed after the first pregnancy. I once considered myself the leading artist for digital artwork around the Santa Monica Pier with a broad selection of unique travel souvenirs. And BAM, I have been overpassed by now.

So I need to get back into the saddle, uppload new designs, promote my Santa Monica Pier gift ideas like crazy and slowly increase my sales.

In case you would like to help me promoting them free on Pinterest, maybe you’d like to check them out in my Santa Monica Pier Travel Souvenir Board?

My Zazzle Surprise Sales

I just took a look at my all time Zazzle sold products and there are a few surprises that, I thought I’d share.

I cannot believe I have sold a total of 46 of these travel mugs as the photo is – let’s be honest! – not a really pretty shot from the Muir Woods.

Swirly Blue Neon Rose Invitation

Two years ago I have sold 325 of these invitations to one person. And that’s it – no more sales with this design on Zazzle or any other pod website.

Believe it or not but I have sold over 1,100 pages of these so far and they are a regular seller…

Sold 11 in total of these although I find it quite ugly and not fitting on a small magnet… was cerated with a huge quick create batch and looks just horrible…

I LOVE selling 150 blank white greeting cards, yes I do!

 

About three years ago I thought it would be wise to open an account and store on Design by Humans to sell my artwork and photos to a broader customer base. And now I must admit it was a mistake. DBH does NOT add watermarks to your works and makes it very easy for copycats to download your images in full resolution!

I am currently reporting copyright infringements like crazy on Sunfrog, where all my DBH pieces can be bought. Without me agreeing to this, without me getting any compensation for it!

So after Sunfrog will have removed my work from their shady website, I will delete everything on Design by Humans to hopefully put an end to this very soon.

I cannot recommend DBH anymore!

Today (April 17) is World Hemophilia Day. It’s supposed to raise awareness of the “not as rare as you might think” hemophilia A genetic decifiency which results in bleeding. It affects males and there is no real cure yet. You can (and should) fight to remain living an active lifestyle, do not let this genetic disorder hinder you in what you can and want to do!

I have created a simple text based design to help raise awareness. I am too late for this year, but maybe someone will buy it for World Hemophilia Day 2020 🙂

This photo “Rainbow over Willemstad Curaçao” is one of the cherished memories from our Caribbean Cruise a few years ago and it was a once in a lifetime moment to see this rainbow over the city in the morning. I was a bit sad to see that EyeEm did not accept it as a market or partner photo, I think it is great to be used not only for tourism topics but also for gay pride. Anyway, if you like it like I do, maybe you’d like to check it out on some print on demand websites or check out my Pinterest board:

Are you curious to know how to apply for an account for Amazon Merch and design and sell t-shirts directly on Amazon’s Marketplace? If not, you definitely should be. It is one of the biggest markets in the world, a vast online shop where many customers are buying.

If you are unsure about how to apply and fill out their request form, I have found this great video online which will guide you through the process:

After you have applied for an account, let me assure you that there is NOTHING in the world you could do to influence Amazon’s decision. The requests seem to not be read and checked, it does not matter what text you use or what your brand name is, sometimes Amazon staff seem to just roll the dice. If you get rejected (and most people do get rejected), you can try it again and again and again. All you need is a new / different email address. Use generic ones or in case you have Gmail, you can have an almost unlimited amount of email address by adding a “.” to your name part of the address, e.g. myemail@gmail can also become my.email@gmail.com or even m.y.e.m.a.i.l@gmail.com. That way you can create many many email addresses with only one account.

 

Good luck 🙂

OhMyPrints is not a new website, but it is new for me. Their main customer base is located in the Netherlands, Benelux region, France and Germany. So I am eager to expand my customer base aswell. Please feel free to check out my profile and shop there and say hello 🙂
