|Zazzle to me is a... *|| |
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? *|
A platinum seller persuaded me to start Zazzling because, she said, it's a great job for a homeschooling mother because it can be fitted around any schedule.
|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'm an adjunct English professor, freelance writer, and homeschooling mother. I keep chickens and a big garden and I like to cook. It's nice to be able to rotate among all those things, because I can go cross-eyed looking at a computer monitor too long. In the evenings my husband reads aloud to the family (Tolkien, The Hunger Games, whatever) and I listen and Zazzle 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. *|
I was not comfortable spending money on my Zazzle enterprise until I knew whether it would bring in enough to make it worth the cost. So, thus far I've only used freeware--Photoscape, Inkscape, and an online site called lunapic.com that will let me remove backgrounds.
|Will you make custom orders? *|| |
Yes - no prepay required
|Elaborate on your answer above regarding custom orders... *|| |
Several times someone has asked me to alter a wedding invitation or design a new one. In some cases buyer then purchased a large number of them, while in other cases the buyer vanished without a trace--but the products were made and posted, and someone else later bought them. So it's all good. What I would not do is make a custom design and hold it back just for one customer.
