When I started with designing for print on demand websites, the Santa Monica Pier and my colorful variations of it where one of my favourite subjects. I keep selling postcards on Zazzle on a regular basis, why not check them out? They are perfect as travel souvenir or for postcrossing.

My recent Zazzle Sales: July 2014

To be honest, I had dreaded July 2014. I had increased my royalty to 30% to most of my products and feared I might sell less. Guess what? That was not the case! It was such a good month that I took a huge step forward and set the royalty to ALL products to 30% for July 20th and it was the best thing I could do ๐Ÿ™‚ I am so looking forward to the Christmas season!

Anyway, these are the 32 sales (5 of them are still pending but I am optimistic that they will turn green very soon!) from July 2014 on Zazzle:

With our recent trip to NYC and the Eastcoast, I just did a search for New York City postcards on Zazzle and guess what? There are almost 8,000 designs available! So I thought I’d show the most popular ones in case you might need a travel souvenir or a nice postcard for postcrossing.

I’d like to present my most popular photo edit which is not only available on MANY products from Zazzle but also from a lot of other POD websites. I’d like to present the most beautiful products for you, maybe you like it too ๐Ÿ™‚

#330133 Santa Monica Pier Grey Sparkles – buy as art prints, canvas prints or other formats from Photo4Me

Photo4Me let’s you create wonderful wall art, mainly posters, canvas prints or acrylic prints. I have not yet sold anything on there and they only let you upload 1 file every 24 hours so it’s a slow earner.

Santa Monica Pier Grey Sparkles Photo Edit Shirt from Printallover.me

Printallover.me is a very interesting site. It’s speciality are all over prints, which you can see on this t-shirt. They also feature canvas bags, pillows, shirts, dresses and even curtains! My account over there is also pretty new, no sales yet.

Grey Sparkling Santa Monica Pier Sport Metal Watch on Cowcow.com

On Cowcow.com I already had one small sale which is not too bad. They have a gazillion of products to add your photos to and very low prices. Quality is not the best with all of them but I can’t find many bad reviews.

Sparkling grey Santa Monica Pier Framed Art Print from Society6.com

Society6.com does have beautiful art prints and the usual alternatives (canvas print, tote bags, pillows, wall clocks). Their latest products are rugs and shower curtains but you need huge photos for them. I am waiting on my first sale there, too.

Sparkling Grey Santa Monica Pier Greeting Card from RedBubble

Sparkling Grey Santa Monica Pier Greeting Card from RedBubble

RedBubble features posters, greeting cards, the usual art prints, laptop and smartphones cases and various t-shirts and alike.

Zazzle is still my best earning pod website, and this postcard is my most popular item. I am selling it on a very regular basis and am happy about every sale.

 

I am also pretty new on Cafepress and have not yet sold very much. I think they offer a good variety of products, definitely more than you can find on Zazzle. And the quality is better than on Cowcow.com. Would love to see you over there ๐Ÿ™‚

I have also created a Pinterest board for this design:

It seems that postcards are getting more and more popular. I once had ordered some myself for Postcrossing (international postcard exchange with random people). I can only recommend postcards from Zazzle for taking part in postcrossing!

 

If you are looking for picturesque postcards, you have come to the right place.

Beautiful landscapes, stunning pictures, scenic nature, picturesque photos. That’s what these postcards are. They are perfect for Postcrossing or for creating wonderful collages on your wall. Be creative and enjoy them ๐Ÿ™‚
