Part 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? *|
One thing that other Zazzlers have told me - is go ahead and leave it up - someone might like it. I have heard of many stories of people selling things they were sure no one would want. That has happened to me too ... I wasn't going to make a bumper sticker out of a slice of one of my paintings ... but decided to anyway. It sold 5 times!
|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 created more art in my free time before I got heavily involved with Print on Demand shops. I spent more time in my physical studio. Also I do community organizing around the arts and environment among other things (both before and now).
Now - hmm now the idea of free time is even more weird - what is free time? I do like watching movies and TV shows with my partner and analyzing them. She is writing a screen play so we are always looking for ideas and how to perfect hers. I also create more digital art because I can be doing other work at the same time.
|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. *|
One of my favorite versions of Photoshop is Photoshop 7, used in Mac OS system 9. That is because I can still use KPT and other filters that I love to use making digital images. Recently my older computer got freed up again and I have started creating using KPT filters - very happy about that. I have recently updated from Photoshop CS 3 to CS 5. They are both fine programs ...each probably faster and with more dodads on them. But they don't run all my beloved filters - I lost all of them in Mac OS 10.
|Will you make custom orders? *|| |
Yes - no prepay required
|Elaborate on your answer above regarding custom orders... *|| |
If someone wants one of my images/paintings on a specific product, I am delighted to accommodate them. I am very happy when people love my work, so I will do whatever I can to make them happy with some of my art. If it is just putting a product on Zazzle, I am not sure that I would charge extra. If it does encompass a lot of extra time, I might tack on a slight surcharge.
