Tag Archive: Christmas


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:

Let’s take a look at the sales from December 2nd to 9th. During that one week I was able to sell 30 items (ok, one got cancelled) but 30 definitely is a new record due to Christmas gift shopping. Yay!

I was able to sell this magnet four times within that week. It’s a bit strange that the same customer bought it four times instead of buying one magnet by four. Does that make any sense? *lol*

I even got a five star rating for that wall clock!

For a short time, this luggage tag was available on Amazon and I was able to sell a few of them.

This beautiful Christmas tree ornament was sold only a few days after its creation – TWICE!

This photo is a perfect example for “everyone thought I was stupid until I was able to sell it!” *lol*

These calendar posters are an inexpensive alternative to regular calendars!

During week 45 I was not only able to sell quite a few products, I also received a payment from Zazzle (about $100) and got referral percentages for my own purchase of a postcards.

Yes, it’s been quite a while since the last post but I had been terribly busy. Let’s take a look at calendar week 34, August 19th to 25th. During that particular week, I had eight sales:

Isla Saona - Palm Tree at the Beach Wall Clock

View other Wall Clocks online at zazzle.com

I had sold this clock twice on two consecutive days to different customers!

It definitely pays off to do some research and NAME things like waterfalls as people who search for specific landmarks will find your products. There are way too many regular boring waterfalls available. Make your products special!

I really would love to know what customers do with these ceramic tiles. Are they for display only or do they get used in bathrooms or kitchens?

The cruise ships definitely sold well during the summer months!

A few weeks ago, Zazzle has launched another unique product for you to design, sell and buy: gift wrapping paper for presents.


I love it and I think it is perfect for us artists, no matter whether you are a photographer or create graphics or drawings.
The images can either be maximised or tiled and it looks very professional. As far as I know, Zazzle’s biggest contender Cafepress does not (yet) offer wrapping paper. So this is really unique online.

Here are a few examples of wrapping paper in my shop:
