Zazzle Fun

11 Comments

Alright, I have a confession to make, I’m addicted to designing my own products on Zazzle. It’s super fun and very easy to do. I have made a handful of products so far but they take about 24 hrs to show up after being made so aren’t up yet.  You can design any product you like from t-shirts to notepads and everything in between. All of the products are made only when an order is placed, until that point the item is purely virtual. The earning potential is relatively small for the average user on Zazzle because the royalty you get is 10% or higher-but if you take a higher royalty the product price goes up and can get quite expensive. Thus, it’s better to go with a lower royalty since it will likely sell better than something seriously overpriced.

So far I haven’t sold anything but I have only been on the site for two days and the first products never appeared until a day later. So I don’t feel too disappointed at this time. It is mostly for fun, I seriously doubt I’ll make any ‘real money’ from my designs. To give you an idea of how much I make once a product is sold I’ll give an example of a mug. Say the mug costs $18.00, well I’d get 10% of that or $1.80. At that kind of rate you’d have to sell an awful lot of mugs to see any sort of benefit. Many of the items cost more than what they would in your average department store but the possibilities for customization are endless. If you want to let your creativity loose Zazzle offers a fair amount of products you can make ‘your own’ by designing it how you wish.

Now that I’ve told you about the site how about going to my shop on there? LOL If you want to indulge me you’ll find I only have two products up at the moment and one has been ‘fixed’ but the ‘fixed’ version hasn’t shown up yet. So maybe just go to the Zazzle site and have some fun for your own sake. I’ll post my link later. It’s on my blog’s sidebar(Blogroll) though so if you’re burning with curiosity check it out!

  1. My daughter is into painting and she has a zazzle that helps her sell her prints on coffee mugs, tee shirts ect. She said that you have to make a certain amount of profit before you get the money. Is that true?

    • Likely, I didn’t check to see how much profit I’d have to make before getting any. Right now it’s just something fun to do. But I will check into that because your daughter is probably right. It’s how it works with a lot of virtual things-no money ’til a certain amount is reached. Good thing I enjoy it 🙂

      • well it gets your work some attention on line at least. that Is the part my daughter liked. They make everything so expensive and like you said, you get such a small part of it. I bet zazzle makes a lot of money with this business lol

      • I bet they do! Heck, the stuff is expensive BEFORE you add the royalty on so I’m thinking the people at Zazzle are doing very well! LOL

  3. It’s a terrific idea…a place to post ur creative ideas..but such a shame the profit margin is so low.

    If you are enjoying it then that has intrinsic rewards 🙂

  4. I mostly do it for the fun of it too. I like that the stuff doesn’t exist until someone buys it. It’s just something to do for a bit of creative expression, and if somebody likes it, so much the better! 🙂

  5. Isn’t creativity fun? I do hope you make some money for the time you are spending, but I am also in a place of having so much fun creating things that I just want to make enough to keep me in supplies to make more. 🙂
    I look forward to seeing your work!
