All Over Print Pillows!

So, I caught wind in the Zazzle forums that pillows sell well and I realized that I hadn’t really put my designs on pillows. I thought: Hey, my designs would work well on pillows! Why not give it a go? (I know there are many variables involved but I really think the tiled designs I do would work well on pillows.)

So here is a small sample of pillows featuring my most recent designs in the Monoprint Gold Blue collection. (I’ll have to go back and make these from my earlier designs as well.)

 

To keep track of my all over print pillows, keep an eye on this collection:

Updates: New Designs + I’m on Tumblr! + Applying to Merch by Amazon

I’ve been working really hard on new designing to post on Zazzle. That’s pretty much taken up all of my time. I just wanted to share some of what I’ve been posting. (These are all up and available for purchase.)

I just opened a new Zazzle shop just for my monoprints.

Check out my Tumblr sites:

It’s been a while since I’ve used Tumblr. Years, actually. I believe I deleted my original (non-art-related) account but got a new one at the end of 2016. Now, I’m using it more actively. I heard from a number of people that the best place to promote your artwork is Tumblr. There are a lot of great artists on there to follow so I’m having fun on there.

For my all over repeat pattern designs: terrikjones.tumblr.com

For my psychedelic digital manipulation designs: queenofantarctica.tumblr.com

This is a site I use to promote mostly other designers:  podsome.tumblr.com

Merch by Amazon

Also, today I applied to Merch by Amazon. It’s by invite only and I hear that it can take months to be accepted or denied. So it’s suggested that applicants work on their t-shirt designs while they wait. So I have a new task at hand! I hope I get accepted. I’ve got new ideas for t-shirts. Kind of like what I’m selling in Queen of Antarctica but less block images. Maybe more vector art. But the same type of topics. I’ve only pretty much heard great things about selling on Merch. So I’m excited. I’ll keep you all posted.

New Zazzle Shop – Artistamps, Postage Stamps, Mail Art, etc.

I made a new Zazzle shop to sell artistamps, postmarks (cancellation stamps) and other mail art paraphernalia. I’ve made some purchases yesterday. I can’t wait for the items to get here! Zazzle Black really comes in handy! I’m glad I subscribed. Only about $9 a year and free shipping on EVERY ORDER! To date, I’ve saved $40.84 on shipping! Wow. You’d be crazy not to use Zazzle Black.

 

The minimum order for the artistamp sheets is 25, so I think I will keep some and sell the rest on etsy, and also include a few in some mail art I send out.
With the free shiping and current 15% off discount, it was less than getting sheets printed off at FedEx Kinkos. Yes, I have a printer but for some reason, everything is printing out with big blue blocks across everything. I’m not sure how to fix it. It’s new ink (I bought cheap off ebay… maybe that’s the problem.) I mean I still print my shipping labels and have no problems with the postal people but I can’t print anything to sell myself right now, otherwise I would print one offs at home.
There’s a few more items in this store and I’m designing more. I have suggested many times to Zazzle that they offer 12″ x 12″ scrapbooking paper. It’s hard for a lot of people to print this large size at home and I don’t know if printers like FedEx Kinkos offers that size paper or how much it would cost.

13 New Digital Scrapbooking Paper Packs

Whew! I just got done posting 13 new digital scrapbooking paper packs in my Etsy shop. I went a little crazy making them since I found a more efficient way of doing it, not just the actual production of my sheets but also the process of listing. So…

Check them out:

Preview: Art Beads

Art Beads, Coming Soon!

I’ve been making a whole bunch of art beads. I just wanted to show you a preview of what I’ve been working on. These will be going up on my etsy shop for sale, so stay tuned!

(Listing everything can take a while; it’s quite tedious. Those of you with etsy shops know this!)

These are all made of air dry clay and painted with acrylic paint. They are all varnished as well. These beads and findings are very sturdy.

I don’t know if you can tell but I am inspired by history. I like to imagine discovering a hoard of ancient jewelry. What would they look like? This is what I’ve imagined. Think of these as Lemurian or Atlantean relics. (Replicas of course… only they aren’t really replicating anything real but what I see in my head. Who knows what their jewelry really looked like!)

My First Zazzle Purchase

Recently, I received the items I ordered through Zazzle. This is my first order from Zazzle. They’re from my own shop and I wanted to share some real-life, candid photos of the products so you know just what they look like!

Two all-over print totes:

A melamine plate:

Two mugs:

My mom liked my mugs so much that I ordered her one too! Should be here shortly.

To shop these items, please scroll down and you should see little widgets that will send you straight to these products. I have many more designs on countless products and I’m uploading new items nearly everyday. Yes, as they say, I fell down the Zazzle rabbit hole!

Zazzle Black Free Shipping Program!

If you purchase multiple products from Zazzle even once, it will probably be CHEAPER for you to join the Zazzle Black program. It gives you FREE STANDARD SHIPPING on all Zazzle products for the low price of $9.95… per year! The reason it will pay for itself is that Zazzle products are printed all over the US, depending on what product you’re purchasing (the product base, not the actual design.)

For example: My shipping on these 5 items would have been $20… that’s double the cost of the Zazzle Black program! This is the total shipping cost of three separate shipments.

If you join, you’ll be given a 30-day free trial first.

Tip: Leave Reviews – Get Coupons!

I’ve left reviews for everything I’ve received so far, and for every review I’ve left, I’ve received a coupon! So please, leave reviews once you receive your items and you will most likely receive a coupon for each review you leave! Don’t forget to take pictures to attach to your reviews.

Also, if you go to Zazzle, check the top of the site. I think they always have some kind of coupon you can use on your purchase.
