Q4 (4th quarter of the year) is here, usually the biggest sales will hit us in the print on demand industry so please do not give up reporting copyright infringements on Amazon Marketplace and other websites!

Reporting Copyright Infringements to Amazon

Reporting Copyright Infringements to Amazon

I often hear artists complaining that reporting those copycats will not earn them money and they have to do productive things to earn money – time is money. This mindset is wrong. The more copycats with copyright infringements are selling YOUR designs, the less YOU might sell yourself! And in addition we have to show the world that it is NOT OK to steal our work, our money, our business, our ideas.

Keep reporting, keep reporting, keep reporting!

Unbelievable… after copycats still stealing our designs from Society6, Cafepress and Zazzle the next can of worms has just been opened! Are you a designer/artist on Design by Humans (DBH)? Then you should definitely check out these Society6 members and “their” designs since they have stolen images right off DBH!

I have just searched through one user (Isabeli) and clicked through over 80 pages of stolen and copied designs to find mine. And I have reported them to Society6, maybe you would like to do the same?

Here is the link to Society6’s contact page:

https://help.society6.com/hc/en-us/categories/200300807-I-m-an-Artist

I have chosen “Intellectual property concerns” and here is the message I have sent to Society6 so that you can use it as an example hoping to make it easier for you, especially when you are not good in English:

 

Dear Society6 Team,

I have been notified of other artists that the artwork we have uploaded to designbyhumans.com (DBH) has been stolen and uploaded to Society6 to several accounts.
Please take a look at my DBH profile and then find all artwork uploaded by Society6 user “Isabeli” as direct links. I request that you remove his/her account immediately. I will also send this message to DBH.

I surely hope that Society6 will do something about this case of copyright infringement. DBH is informed and they say that they have also contacted Society6 on this topic and are waiting on a reply. I will try to keep you posted here, too!

Giving up on Redbubble?

So after I just did what I rarely do (deleted all my works from Live Heroes as I had not even one encouraging sale in my first 6 months), I am now contemplating about giving up on Redbubble. Is selling one pack of stickers worth it? I will definitely not add any more art/photos to my shop. Deleting would be a pain since I have a LOT uploaded and maybe I will reach cashout in a few YEARS… *lol*

With my cute baby girl keeping me busy, I would like to concentrate on POD sites that REALLY pay and are worth my time. Zazzle, Cafepress and Society6 are my top 3 shops at the moment.

What are your thoughts on Redbubble? Are you happy with your sales and earning good money with it?

In case you want to check out my work and hey- maybe even BUY something (wishful thinking) here you go 🙂

December 2015 has been my BEST month so far with Cafepress! Due to all the Christmas shopping, I had a total of 26 sales and earned about $45. Woohoo! This is a breakthrough, especially since Zazzle had been disappointing during Christmas season 2015 🙂

Since Cafepress’ embedded code is still not working, I will continue to post screenshot of my sales along with links to my profile page where you can take a look at all designs and products:

My Cafepress Sales December 2015

During November 2015, I had 7 successful sales on Cafepress. Not the best month but definitely a good month! But since Cafepress recently has made changes to their embed code, I will have to put up a screenshot of my sales and a link to my designs since I do not have the time to link to each and every product. I am sorry – a support ticket has been filed 🙂

Both Zazzle and Cafepress do sell unique hitch covers for your car or truck. But what are hitch covers anyway?

These automotive accessories are not only stylish but very handy. They protect and mask your car’s towing hitch.

Zazzle writes about them:

Let your SUV, RV, truck, or car do the talking with a customized hitch cover! Made in the U.S.A with heavy duty plastic, this cover secures to your receiver with a hitch clip (not included). Choose from small or large to fit your 1.25″ or 2″ receiver. Your designs, images, and text are printed in full color on a metal plate to make a bold statement wherever you go.

  • Dimensions: 5.125″L x 3.875″W. Available in two sizes to fit the 1.25″ (small) or 2″ (large) receiver.

  • 2″ receiver is traditionally for SUV and Pickups; 1.25″ receiver typically fits Minivans and smaller cars.

  • Made with heavy duty plastic.

  • Secures with hitch clip (not included).

  • Printed in full color on metal plate.

  • Made in USA.

October 2015 has been a surprisingly slow month for me not only on Cafepress. I have no idea why my sales on all sites have decreased drastically although the Christmas shopping months are here. Do you have any idea?
