I just had this idea for a blog post that focusses on one of the fundamental topics of my blog. With all these AI Art images and videos I tend to forget about the original earning with print on demand vibe.
So, who would like to check out my “naughty and nice list” of my print on demand websites? Naughty does mean “no earnings in 2022” and nice will mean “ka-ching” 😍

The following sites do not come in any specific order, it’s not a ranking apart from being on the naughty or nice list. I will not write down detailled earnings, I might give a hint or two and I might even babble a bit about what kind of products or designs sold best.


NAUGHTY LIST – will not get updated until further notice

  1. LeGaleriste
    Ok, this might not be 100% fair since I started with them only a few months ago but to be honest: I had high expectations… and dreams… and hopes…. and zero sales with a shop full of pretty fashion items πŸ˜₯ A little bit of hope is still left and I cross my fingers for some sales in 2023 to push this onto the nice list!
  2. Calvendo
    Calvendo is a German based publisher focussing on calendars with some puzzles and wall art for the best images. A few years ago (pre-covid) I had a few sales per year from my “Caribbean Cruise Ships” calendar but that had stopped in 2020 😣 I had re-discovered their site and have created a few AI Art calendars for 2023 that I do hope will sell in December 2022 and January 2023. If not, Calvendo will probably stay on the naughty list for a few more years…
  3. miPic
    I had not uploaded much and had forgotten about this for over one year (or even longer) and have given them a second chance now with uploading some AI Art images. No sale yet, I will keep you updated.

NICE LIST

  1. Society6
    Unsteady earner. I have no idea why but there are many months in a year with no sales at all and then there are a few months where I sell a few things. I have no idea why…
  2. Redbubble
    Redbubble is one of my slowest earners, I never seem to hit a trend and sell anything more than once. Mainly a few stickers here and there… not really worth my time but then I don’t want to stop uploading *sigh*
  3. Zazzle
    One of my favourites, a very steady and rather good earner but I will not get rich with it.
  4. Displate
    Displate is a bit like Redbubble… I am always hoping for sales but I might sell only 3 or 4 a year. They only sell metal posters as far as I know, so there is not much potential for selling a huge variety of products. In 2022, I had received my first payment after I have no idea how many years.
  5. EyeEm
    If you really read my blog post you whould wonder “This is NOT a print on demand website???” but hey, it’s one of my best earners 😁
  6. Amazon Merch on Demand
    Slow but steady and I am still hoping for hitting a trend so that my earnings might skyrocket….
  7. TeePublic
    This one is also a smaller earner and there are months I don’t sell anything but it is slightly better than Redbubble.
  8. VIDA
    Well, in 2020 and 2021 I did earn quite much with textile masks selling like crazy. I had two very popular designs but now the sales are very small. Uploading designs is rather quick though and I do hope that sales will increase soon.
  9. Spreadshirt.com
    Another small earner that I had totally forgotten about in the last 2 or 3 months. I have started to upload again to test some AI Art, so please kepp your fingers crossed.

So, how does your naughty and nice list look?

 

P.S: I was too lazy to check Cafepress for any recent sales. I do believe they should be on the naughty list… have not gotten any payment since I have no idea…

And by the way, I am also in TikTok now, so let’s connect!

Not much ado about it, let’s just take a look at some of the sold products on Zazzle that made me smile or ponder:

Just a little post from me so that you know I am still alive. I can’t believe I haven’t posted my Zazzle sales since last January. To not bore you with a loooong list of products, let me just share the remarkable ones – the ones that made me smile:

This Route 66 design is sooooo old and to be honest – not really nice to look at. It was the result of me playing with some horrible cheap filters and somehow landed on a bunch of quick create templates many, many years ago. And now someone bought 100 invitations with this design! WOOHOO!!!!

It’s similar with this St. Patrick’s Day vintage image, I finally managed to sell something with it!

Scenic Caribbean Island Saint Lucia Beach Towel

I have not sold many beach towels yet and this one was a rather new photo design that was sold very shortly after product creation. I must have hit a niche.

Dark be the Night - Luminous Seattle Skyline Magnet
Dark be the Night – Luminous Seattle Skyline Magnet

This one was also sold a few days after creation!

I love Aruba - One happy Island Adult Cloth Face Mask
I love Aruba – One happy Island Adult Cloth Face Mask

One customer from the USA bought 24 of these – maybe for a family cruise?

With a total of ~ 70 sales for 3 months it was a rather mediocre three months.

Ever since I had found the first stolen design on the Amazon marketplace, I tried to figure out WHAT makes the Chinese copycats decide what to steal and what to copy.

One might think they copy the most popular designs and most popular products but then you take a look at the following list and none of these on Zazzle have been sold so far…

The first two are a byproduct and massive quick create use and not even that good… I would delete them but I do need them as a proof for Amazon that this is MY creation πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

So here it goes, a list with Zazzle products that I have fought to remove from Amazon:

This Christmas stocking contains template text, the “Add a Name” can be edited. But this only works on Zazzle. Guess what the Amazon copycats are selling? Right, the exact thing you see in this picture!
