Barcelona and vintage retro space art posters

A page is added with some great posters in a vintage retro space art theme. I try to find at least 50 good ones, because Zazzle is a numbers game. You probably heard that often. It is all about getting found. Either by having a lot of products designed by yourself. Or promoting a big bunch of very good designs made by others and making money as an affiliate.

When I started with Zazzle I was thinking in tens of products with a design. Later I realized this wasn’t enough, sales were and still are very sporadic. End of 2012 I set a goal of 400 products. That really didn’t help much. Now I’m convinced I have to think in the thousends. Which means heavy use of templates in Zazzle in order to get a 100 products published in one go.

Vintage retro space art

For the affiliate program I want to create a couple of page of designs I like. My guess is that I can get away with about 500 designs of other people on this website, maybe a thousend. Any more and people will overlook most of them anyhow. My second page has a vintage retro space art theme. I’ll try to increase the number up to a 100.

Barcelona tile pattern

last week I also finished a new Barcelona tile design. Again I think it succeeded pretty well. I was able to publish about 80 products in one go, so I still have to work on my templates. It is still far behind the numbers succesfull Zazzle sellers have published. They count in the tens of thousands. Of one person I knows she’s working full time on her Zazzle store. Every day one design, put on about a hundred products.

My production of designs and products has increased considerably and the affilliate link pages have begun. Next project will be Pinterest. To showcase my designs and to promote other people designs.

Barcelona tile pattern for Zazzle merchandise

I’ve added a new Barcelona tile pattern to my Zazzle account in order to create a bunch of products. It’s not the first Barelona tile pattern, but this one I explicitely show off for the first time on a website. For the purpose of selling, that is. Below is an Apple iPhone 4s case as an example, but I’ve got dozens of products with this pattern.

Most of my patterns I get from books and I redraw them in Inkscape. If you’re into patterns for products designs, a vector graphic program is essential. Especially if you need to design fo a whole range of products at Zazzle.

I’ve got a bunch of examples of Barcelona tile patterns. They pretty colorful and bright an I find them very well suited for Amazon Kindle, Apple iPad or Samsung Galaxy cases or the like. As you can see above, a nice clear and bright picture on a webpage.
