In the beginning of June, I had started to try a new print-on-demand website: GrabYourDesign. I uploaded a few of my most popular designs, was very pleased how easy the design process was and only few days later, the sales began to make me pretty happy. Within one month, I sold enough to am waiting for my first cash out now 🙂 By now I have uploaded all my suitable designs and have already sold 25 pieces. Each sale earns €1.13 to €1.53 depending on what it was (smartphone case, mouse pad, flip flops, etc.) but unfortunately, we cannot yet see what it was that we have sold. One big plus is that they are selling on various international Amazon Marketplace websites which increases the number of potential customers.

But now, without further ado, let’s see the 10 designs I have sold on GYD during June 2015:

As I had mentioned before, this Santa Monica Pier photo is my most successful and most popular photo with many different photo edits for every taste.

Our Caribbean photos also gain popularity quickly. This makes me especially proud since there is a lot of competition out there!

The first half of 2013 is almost over, read more to see my sales of week 25.

The negative first: I had a total of 3 cancellations during week 25, I’d like to post them anyway:

I had been really, really happy about selling these two clocks. What a pity that they got cancelled!

And also this beautiful scenic post card got cancelled:

But now on with the successful sales. I sold 3 products which seems to not be much, but I had a ton of referral sales, so it evens out. Here are my direct sales:

This tropical scenic beach is “Rockly Bay” on Tobago. The first beach we had been to on our Caribbean cruise – swimming was not allowed 😦

This floating train is a famous unique method of public transportation in Wuppertal. I am also currently working in Wuppertal, so expect more photos of the trains, soon 🙂

And now on with the massive referral sales I had. In total, I had 5 referral sales but 3 of them are not accessible anymore. Probably products that had been custom designed without being listed in the public shop. So here are the two you can look at:

Evil Flower Bug Vintage iPhone 4 Cover

I have no idea where this lead came from as I have never advertised this case, but it’s cute – in a creepy kind of way 🙂

This photo definitely is unique and funny, don’t you agree?

So, what have you sold on Zazzle lately?

 

During the 23rd calendar week of 2013 (June 3rd to 9th) I had 5 succesful sales. Two additional sales got cancelled and during that week a payment was issued:

€100.36 is about $130.00 🙂 I do not earn that much every month, I get a payment every other month since my payment threshold is set to €52 or more. Pretty nice, huh?

Here are the items I was able to sell through Zazzle during this week:

Painted Ladies in San Francisco (Tilt & Shift) Square Wallclocks

This wall clock is one of my many products where I had thought that no one would ever want them. But they sell!

I had another eight sales during that week and earned a bit over $10 which is not bad. One sale got cancelled. I had no referral sales.

Here are my eight sales from that week:

This photo was shoot a bit over 3 years ago on Route 66, I have created this photo edit recently.

This photo is a royalty-free photo for everyone to use. It is pretty popular on many designs.

And another postcard that had also sold last week.

And this is te third card we had also sold the week before 🙂

How is Zazzle working for you at the moment?

During this week in 2013, I had eight sales and only two cancellations. That’s a pretty average week. I had no referral sales where I helped selling other artists’ designs. In total, I earned a bit over $2 during this week. Not very much as I sold many less expensive items like postcards but still better than nothing, right?

So here are my sales of the 20th week:

Isla Saona - Palm Tree at the Beach Fridge Magnets

This picturesque photo of a palm tree was shot in February this year on Isla Saona, part of the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean. We had been there as part of a cruise and it was awesome!

Winter Love - Heart in Snow Postcard

This is a photo, my husband had shot during the last winter solely with the purpose of selling it on Zazzle *lol* As this is not the first item with this photo, I’d say: mission accomplished 🙂

Everything that is related to “Shades of Grey” is a big seller at the moment. A coincidence?

This is a more colourful variation of our Santa Monica Pier photograph.

This is one of our most popular postcards!

A beautiful and picturesque scenery, don’t you think? It’s the Californian Pacific coast.

Wuppertal Floating Train / Wuppertaler Schwebebahn Magnets

The floating train in Wuppertal is highly unique. In German it’s “Schwebebahn” and is a popular sight of the city Wuppertal. For the next few years, I will be working in Wuppertal and am looking forward to shooting many more photos of the floating train 🙂

Capitol in Sacramento Post Card

This is another one of my most popular postcards. The photo is about 3 and a half years old. Back then, Arnold Schwarzenegger was still governor of California.

Another day, another sale. This time, it’s an ornament!

Until a few weeks ago, I thought I would never ever sell any Christmas tree ornaments on Zazzle. But just before Christmas, I have sold quite a few of them and it makes me really proud that people want to decorate their trees with out photos and photo edits! I mean, how cool is that?

Christmas ornaments are a really good earner before Christmas, so I definitely advise you to create them during the year to have them ready in your shop just before the festivities and the shopping sprees begin 🙂

The sale from December 21st in 2012 (Oh yes, the end of the world *lol*) is a photo edit of the famous Painted Ladies, Victorian houses in San Francisco, California. The effect is called “tilt & shift” and adds a touch of miniature wonderland to photos. It also enhances the colours. Tell me what you think of it:

I really like this one, don’t you?

Did you know about this tilt and shift photo effect? There are free generators online that let you add this effect to your own photos for free!

 

This is the first towel I have sold on Zazzle, hurray!

Yes, this is the first hand towel or kitchen towel that I have sold through Zazzle. I am really happy about it. This beautiful towel is going to the United Kingdom, thank you very much!

This towel has earned me £1.14 GBP:
