Tag Archive: Cologne Cathedral


After the pretty awesome Christmas time with a lot of sales, I had zero sales in January on Society6. That was pretty depressing. In addition, I only had this one sale during February, I really do hope that sales will increase again. I am currently working on promoting my things so that they get added to the official Society6 shop which will hopefully increase my sales.

December 18th was a successful day on Zazzle.

Christmas brought in a vast variety of sales in 2012 and on December 18th, I was lucky to refer a huge postcard sale. But first of all, I have sold 4 of my own products available, all to the USA. Here they are:

I find it really interesting that customers seem to love my pink photo edit of the Santa Monica Pier, a photo we have shot in 2010. The different photo edits seem to be more popular than the original photo itself! Another best-selling product is my white lined paper, a really simple idea that people seem to love! During December, I have also sold several different items with various photos of the Cologne Cathedral, probably because it can be easily related to Christmas. I am really happy about these many sales with almost $3.00 in royalty earnings. But that was not all on that specific day! Someone has bought a bunch of postcards through my referral link and I have earned 15% for referring these sales from various sellers! I am happy to present you the postcards I have helped to sell:

Aren’t these pretty? I am really happy that I could refer this sale and that I earned another $3 with this!

Another milestone passed!

On December 13th (which was not a Friday *lol) I have sold a total of seven different items on Zazzle which is a new record and milestone for me. I have never sold so much within one day before!

The combined royalty earnings are incredible: $23.94 USD!!!

I had waited a few days before posting about new sales since the rate of cancellations seems to be pretty high this month.

Yes, that’s right. About one third of my recent sales this month get cancelled again within 48 hours. Some buyers who cancelled something are coming back after a few days and purchase the product again – but not all. It was a bit frustrating to post much about sales only to find them cancelled the next day *sigh*

So, on November 4th I had two sales. The first one is a postcard of the interior of the gothic Cologne Cathedral:

Remarkable architecture, isn’t it? The buyer was Veronica in Goose Creek, SC and she earned me $0.64 with buying eight of these postcards.

The second sale was a throw pillow I had designed less than 48 hours before:

Sold to Sivan in Stoughton, MA for $3.78 in royalty. Thank you for your purchase!

I am often surprised about what kind of photo products sell on Zazzle. This hat is the most recent surprise.

Honestly, I had totally forgotten about creating these “trucker hats” as I personally would not buy such a hat with a photo on it. I don’t know, it’s not something I would wear. But I have just sold my first trucker hat to a fellow German:

 

Thanks to Stephan in Warendorf for purchasing this hat! It earned me €1.29 in royalty and made me create a template for hats so that I can easily create more of them. This hat is the proof that you should never give up on Zazzle and never think “I won’t create that item, no one will buy it anyway!”. This would be a huge mistake *lol*

 

I knew that shooting our own photos of the Cologne Cathedral would make us a profit in Zazzle 🙂

This sale does not earn us a huge sum, but small amounts do add up!

Someone anonymous from Aachen in Germany has bought this beautiful fridge magnet:

This sale earned us €0.47 which should be a bit more than $0.70. Not bad, huh?

I have a lot of products online with different photos of the gothic Cathedral in Cologne and this one is the second item I have sold with such a photo. Way to go 🙂

 

Have a great weekend!

 

Earlier this week, I had three sales on one day. I was too ill to write about it earlier. Read all about it here now:

On October 3rd, I had three sales. The address labels seem to be pretty popular as I had sold them a few times already but the tie is a premier. It is the first tie I have sold! The button is one of my popular vintage designs.

Anna from Burlington, VT has bought 10 sheets of my popular Grand Canyon address labels and she has earned me $2.60 in royalty:

Thank you, Anna!

Bruno in Den Haag (Netherlands) has bought this tie with a beautiful photo from the Cologne Cathedral:

Bruno has earned me €2.49 for my first sold tie. Thank you!

And last but not least, Sinead in Lurgan (UK) has bought this cute little button and earned me £0.14 GB:

Thank you all for your purchases!

 

Ok, I just had a very good laugh when checking my emails.

Zazzle has removed one of my new designs. You can see it attached to this topic.
It is one of the altars from Cologne Cathedral.

Guess what the reason for deletion is?

“Design may contain nudity, depicts artistic nudity and/or be considered sexually suggestive, pornographic or obscene”

Uhm, yeah…

Am I the only one not understanding this?

What do you – Zazzler or not – think about this?
