Archive for February, 2021


Ever since I had found the first stolen design on the Amazon marketplace, I tried to figure out WHAT makes the Chinese copycats decide what to steal and what to copy.

One might think they copy the most popular designs and most popular products but then you take a look at the following list and none of these on Zazzle have been sold so far…

The first two are a byproduct and massive quick create use and not even that good… I would delete them but I do need them as a proof for Amazon that this is MY creation 🤦‍♀️

So here it goes, a list with Zazzle products that I have fought to remove from Amazon:

This Christmas stocking contains template text, the “Add a Name” can be edited. But this only works on Zazzle. Guess what the Amazon copycats are selling? Right, the exact thing you see in this picture!

Here are the products I have sold on Zazzle in January 2021:

It definitely helps to promote old products and old sales as you can see with this San Francisco postcard that suddenly sold again.
I keep selling this very difficult puzzle regularly since the Corona puzzle hype in late spring 2020. I could never solve a puzzle like this *lol*
Very old design with no sales… promoted it on Twitter and Pinterest and suddenly it is selling…. no comment 😉
The text looks horrible in this picture as it is a transferred design from a card in landscape format. I have no idea why this one here keeps selling from time to time….
Rather new design and I am very happy that it sold. Digital artwork based on an original vacation photo.
I have sold 200 of this design transferred to cards and I really do not know why customers do buy this ugly design. It is very old, back when quick create did work and it would create 100 products with one photo at once. I never made the effort to remove the big white border…

“Sales” is a bit too much… I had ONE sale. For less than $2 but hey… I take what I can get….

Better late than never, I had totally forgotten to list my Amazon Merch sales for December 2020, so here they come together with two sales from January 2021:

Three products with four sales in total – on German Amazon.de. These are probably the only two designs I can sell from time to time, the other funny phrases are not that successful.

I could manage to sell a t-shirt on the Spanish marketplace though:

And one in the USA:

VIDA is still a good earner, despite Christmas being over. I do have three mask designs that are rather popular:
