|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 I ever got was when someone taught me how to make a background transparent so I didn't have that big ugly square around my images! I didn't go to school for art or anything, so my training is more than limited, so everything that I have learned how to do I have either learned from trial and error on my own, or from advice from fellow Zazzlers. I know it seems like a small piece of advice and something that just about everyone knows how to do, but to a girl who was as computer illiterate as I was back in 2006, it was like the holy grail of info!
|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? *|| |
Honestly? Before I found Zazzle back in 2006, my free time was spent doodling in sketchbooks and notebooks, not making a dime off of any of it. Now...well, now I can't say that I have free time because every moment that I have is either drawing something that I know will be published and sold as a product, promoting myself, creating custom designs for clients, or promoting my fellow artists of The indiExhibit.
|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 use Gimp for 99% of my work 1) because it is what I know, 2) because I am too busy to take the time to learn Photoshop (or all of Illustrator for that matter!) and 3) well, it's FREE! You can't beat free, I don't care what anyone says :)
|Will you make custom orders? *|| |
Yes - sometimes free, sometimes fee required upfront
|Elaborate on your answer above regarding custom orders... *|
I typically ask for at least 50% in advance for custom orders, although there have been times that I have just started them without an advance.
