Mandala PopSockets on Amazon!

I’m excited to announce that I’m finally selling PopSockets on Amazon with my mandala designs on them!

They are currently only available to U.S. residents only, but hopefully will expand to the UK, Germany, and Canada soon.

Please note that if you’re not located in the U.S. nothing will appear when you click on the links in this post.  However, if you go to the top left of the screen (on Amazon) where it says “Deliver To” you can click on that and manually type in a U.S. zipcode (ex. 90210) and then you can see the item.  Unfortunately you won’t be able to ship to an address outside of the U.S. at this time.

So, what the heck are PopSockets anyway?

They are collapsible grips that stick to the back of your phone (or case) and can be used to hold your phone (great for photos and selfies), or as a stand so you can watch movies or otherwise go hands free!

I love using PopSockets on my phone and can’t live without them now, so be warned!

Here are a few examples of my mandala designs on PopSockets, and you can see all my current designs here. (Again, please note nothing will show up if the deliver to address is outside of the U.S.)

They make great gifts and stocking stuffers too!

Selling your Art on POD Websites: TeePublic Edition

Selling your art on POD websites Redbubble edition (1)

I’ve recently started selling my designs on a new Print On Demand website, called TeePublic.  So far I have made a couple of sales and so I wanted to share with you all my experiences. Read on to find out more about selling art on TeePublic and see if it might work for you!

Open a free TeePublic store and start selling your artwork and making $ today!

First Impressions

  • This POD is very T-shirt focused (it is TeePublic after all).
  • Prices are comparatively very reasonable.  Maybe your friends/family won’t pay $30 for your t-shirt but they might be willing to pay $14!
  • Caters to branded and/or fan art.  (Personally I avoid this because I’m not willing to have my stuff taken down due to copyright infringement)
  • Punny and funny designs also seem to do well.

Ease of Upload

  • Very quick and simple uploading process.  Few steps.
  • Intuitive tagging (suggestions come up even before you start typing)!
  • Must use a .png image for the t-shirts (ie. no background).
  • You can upload patterns for some products like pillows or totes, but you can only use one version of the image, you can’t upload a different file for the t-shirt (so in that case there would be no t-shirt for that design).
  • As mentioned above, there is no ability to upload multiple versions of the same design to suit a different product type, so keep this in mind.
  • You can resize and centre your design easily.

Storefront

  • Pretty basic. Focus is on the design and T-shirts.
  • No models, just images of the products by themselves.

Here is a screenshot of my store front:

T-shirt product page display:

Products and Pricing

  • A fairly small range of products but they are quite affordable.
  • Basic t-shirts are $14 for the first 3 days after upload, then they go up to $20.
  • T-shirts go on sale for $14 at least 1x per month. (Other products go on sale too)
  • A wide variety of shirt styles including hoodies and kids’ clothing are available.
  • They also have stickers, totes, tapestries, phone cases, mugs, pillows, notebooks and prints.
  • Prices in USD.

Shipping

  • Starts at $5.99 to the U.S. and Canada.

Payment

  • Paypal or Payoneer payment options.
  • Paid monthly on the 15th for previous month’s earnings.
  • Affiliate program available, but you have to apply.
  • They also have a “refer an artist” program, where you can potentially get paid if you refer someone to open a store and they make sales.

Community

  • There is a Facebook group but it isn’t very active.
  • No obvious forum.
  • Ability to follow other designers but not to like their individual works.  Less sense of community than other platforms such as Zazzle or Redbubble.

Promotional Tools

  • You will get an e-mail once a month or so letting you know about upcoming sales.
  • In this email are links to download various advertisement templates catered to different social media platforms, which can be used and edited in Photoshop.
  • Teepublic advertises their top design picks on the homepage and through e-mail campaigns so if you can get noticed by them, they’ll do the work for you!

Summary

  • If your work is very graphic, and especially if you do fan art, TeePublic could be a great option for you.
  • Their website and uploading process is simple and easy to use.
  • Their affordable prices, especially $14 T-shirts, is an excellent way to entice buyers.

So, what are you waiting for?

Check out TeePublic today and let me know what your thoughts and experiences are in the comments below!

My Best Polyvore Sets

Unicorn Makeup Polyvore fashion set

You may have heard that the popular fashion website Polyvore was sold off and the website has been shut down.

If you didn’t know about Polyvore, it was a fashion website where you could pin and collect fashion, home decor, and images from around the web and create sets with them, enter them into contests and share them with friends.  It was pretty fun, especially for fashion lovers.

I used Polyvore to make sets and sometimes included my own designs from Zazzle and Society6 in them.

I was able to download all of my sets before they were gone forever, and since they are no longer online I thought I’d share a few of my best sets here!

Where I’ve included my own designs in the set I will list the products below the image in case you’re interested.

I actually have a ton more sets that I will save for a later date.

I am pretty sad that Polyvore is gone since it was a fun and unique website!  Does anyone know of any similar alternatives?  If you used Polyvore, what are your thoughts on the change?

Have a great day everyone.

 

Cheers,

Julie

Rose Gold Vintage Pattern

PhotoGrid_1499135179081

Hello everyone!  Today I’m sharing a new version of my Vintage Pattern in Rose Gold.

The original design was hand drawn, then scanned and turned into a pattern digitally.  I played around with a few colour combinations before settling on this one.  The muted pink tones add to the vintage feel of this artwork.

This vintage inspired pattern looks nice on many of the products in my Society6 and Redbubble stores!  Check out some examples below:

bag clutch makeup purse accessories fashion

Rose Gold Vintage Pattern Carry-all Pouches

This design looks lovely on carry-all pouches from Society6. They come in 3 sizes and can be used for so many things including a pencil case, makeup bag or clutch.

fashion accessories home decor pink unique tote

Rose Gold Vintage Pattern Tote Bag

A tote bag with this design adds class and a vintage vibe to any outfit.  They’re handy for work, school, or heading to the beach. Tote bags can be purchased from both Society6 and Redbubble.

mobile phone cases pastel pink light unique art

Rose Gold Vintage Pattern iPhone Case

This pattern works great as a mobile phone case and is available for several models in both of my stores, including for the latest iPhone.

Rose Gold Vintage Pattern A-Line Dress

This design works well as an A-Line Dress from Redbubble.

I haven’t purchased one of these dresses for myself yet, but I am curious to find out what they’re like in person.  It looks great on the model of course but on me, who knows?  If anyone has purchased or seen one in person feel free to share your experience in the comments section below!

light pastel pink beach blanket wall art tapestries

Rose Gold Vintage Pattern Wall Tapestry

The final product I will share with you today is a wall tapestry, because I love wall tapestries.  They are available on both Redbubble and Society6.  I love tapestries because they are so versatile and show off the artwork really nicely.  This particular design would work nicely as a backdrop for photos or YouTube videos!

That’s all I have for you today folks, I hope you all enjoyed seeing my latest work, wherever you are reading from.

Make sure to follow my blog so you won’t miss my next post!

 

Cheers!

Stay Wild Moon Child

Something old made new again!

This design was created by combining an older drawing of the moon with the words “Stay Wild” in this cute font.

The artwork has a relaxed, care-free vibe.

It looks particularly nice on a t-shirt which would make a great gift for that free-spirited friend in your life.
