|Your shop name *|| |
|Zazzle to me is a... *|| |
Full time job - with part time pay
|What is the best advice you have received from a fellow shopkeeper about your shops or designs you would like to pass on to another shopkeeper? *|
The best advice? Patience. And hard work. Keep at it and don't give up and you'll eventually get results. My motto ... Bit by Bit.
|What PODs do u currently use or have shops on? *|| |
|What did you do with your free time before zazzle or other POD's....and what do you do with it now? *|| |
I used to read and write. A lot.
Now? I no longer have any free time! Fortunately, I love my work and art, so spend pretty much every minute I have on it. That includes research and tutorials and learning how to market myself better, leaving barely enough time to eat and sleep.
|What programs do you use to make your designs *|| |
|Tell us more about what you like and do not like about each software you use, what makes it special. *|
I love Corel Painter 12! I'm a beginner but whenever I have the time I dabble in it and hope something decent enough appears. In my non-digital art I use mainly colored pencils so it's quite lovely to wield digital brushes and get a sense of the paints without getting all messed-up.
|Will you make custom orders? *|| |
Yes - but only for people I know personally
|Elaborate on your answer above regarding custom orders... *|| |
I used to do custom orders, but stopped because it takes me a long time to draw (in colored pencil) illustrations or create hand-drawn text designs, and unfortunately, I found that more often than not the customers who ordered them would just disappear.
I have to prioritize my time, and custom orders end up taking up too much of it for too little reward either emotionally or financially.
