Category: Random and Anything Else


You know, I do not really know whether I love or hate Redbubble. I love their uploader, creating products from a new design is relatively fast. But I do hate the process of adding newly available products to older designs! Every fu**ing time!

There is no quick, fast and easy way to activate new products. They had just added cloth masks – so you had to edit every single one of your designs to add the according face mask. Only to find out one week later that they now also offer magnets. And kitchen aprons. And puzzles… oh, and don’t forget the new duffle bags and backpacks!

AAARRRRGH!!!!!! I have over 100 designs online, it is tedious! The only advantage: I also take a quick look at the keywords/tags and whenever I see an important one missing, I do add it.

So please excuse me, I need to add the new kid’s masks to the regular masks, the aprons and the puzzles! And the magnets… 🤮😜

Happy creating, happy hustling!

Searching through Google and Pinterest with my real name, I stumbled a cross a few pins of allover print t-shirts with my designs on them that I had uploaded on oarttee.com

I had not heard anything about them for a while and tried their website – offline or rather domain for sale 😦 I cannot remember noticing their demise and closing.

Their Facebook page is still online. Does anyone remember what happened to them? Their last Twitter tweet is from March 2016.

I think I never sold anything and therefore had no outstanding earnings.

After almost one year with not many mentionable pirate copies and bootleg products on the Amazon.com Marketplace, Chinese copy cats strike again and this time they are fighting with self-adhesive window stickers and door stickers. They ripped the image off a glass coaster (it says so in the title) and I have reported LOTS of them today. I have an up-to-date collection of them – using Amazon’s Wishlist feature to keep them together so that I can check their status without having to bookmark anything:

Do you search for pirate copies and report them?

Update 2020-06-30: Amazon.com was very fast this time. It took them less than 12 hours to remove all reported copies!

I do have a sub-page to this blog with links to all my print on demand webshops and I finally had the time to put all the links together. It’s updated now for your convenience:

Today is June 20 – avid Zazzlers might know the 20th of a month is THE day where you can change your standard royalty. You can change the royalty on every day of the month but the changes will only go live on the 20th. 🤦‍♀️

Since the current financial situation (hello pandemic 😢) is not very bright for many of us all around the world, I thought I might temporarily reduce my royalty. It was set to 30% since shortly before the pandemic to test how my sales would compete and I do think this has to stop. At least for one of two months. I might raise it just in time for Q4 before Christmas, who knows?

It’s another royalty experiment with Zazzle always being the most expensive of all print on demand shops – at least that’s my perception. I am asking myself for years why anyone is still buying anything from Zazzle. It’s probably a mix of truly unique print on demand products not even Artsadd can offer (and they offer MANY different items!) and the “made in USA” label they are holding up.

Anyway, have you ever changed your royalty settings for Zazzle, Redbubble or Society6?
