I remind myself of this all the time. It’s good to put things into perspective.
I uploaded some of my photos to Zazzle the other day to create cell phone cases. My daughter suggested making more of the close up textures. Here’s what I came up with. After adding them to Zazzle, I uploaded them to Redbubble as well, which automatically puts them on assorted products. I was surprised at how much I liked the simple patterns on various items. Zazzle only lets you create one item at a time, so it’s more of a guessing game as to what customers might be interested in. I like cell phone cases and notebooks, so I start there. These are a few items from the Redbubble automatic products that I liked. If you click on any link, you will go to that item’s page, but you will also be able to see the image on other items as well.
One of the reasons I love print on demand is the ability to print my photography on more than just wall art. As an artist who spends a lot of time creating, then a lot more time (and money) creating physical items to hang at the gallery, this is a nice option. It frees me up to do what I love, which is taking the actual pictures.
Have you purchased items from a print on demand site? What did you think?
Are you a writer looking for a beautiful notebook to write in? Do you need a gift? I’ve just uploaded some of my photos onto notebooks. Take a look!
I’ve spent the morning creating cell phone cases from my photos on Zazzle. Take a look! I’ve linked the Case Mate versions, but these are available in Speck and Otterbox as well.
