Why Designing Zazzle Paperproducts Is A Good Idea

Are you looking for a creative outlet, yet want to make money online, and have only limited time doing so?
Why not begin by designing consumable paper products for Zazzle.

What do I mean by consumable paper products?
By that, I mean designs that fall into the following categories
1. Business cards
2. Wedding Invitations
3. Birthday Invitations
4. Custom Party Decor
5. Labels
6. Stamps
7. Postcards
8. Custom Birthday cards.

These product categories are the bestsellers on Zazzle, and for good reasons. For a great price, customers can
purchase individually designed custom paper products, which they can personalize for the occasion or their
profession. They do not have to order a massive quantity, often are able to purchase the exact amount needed – such
as with the Wedding Invitations, and Birthday Invitations, and there is a design for just about anyone.

Zazzle allows you to open multiple “stores” where you can specialize in a specific design type or a specific product
type, it is absolutely left up to you.

Also, Zazzle has a very profitable feature, which allows designers and creators to receive double commission – once as
a creator, and an additional commission as a Zazzle Affiliate, which you are automatically as a designer – no need for any extra sign ups or special applications to go through.

How Do I Get Started?

I recommend the following steps if you are considering designing paper products for Zazzle.
1. Familiarize yourself with the category you are interested in creating
2. Create a store within Zazzle – begin with one!
3. Create a corresponding Website or blog – see my post on how to set up a website or blog, for more information.
4. Fill up your store with designs
5. Promote them on social media, and your blog.
6. Join Zazzle support groups on Facebook.

  1. Cool, I’ve bought things at zazzle before and I never knew independent designers were behind the scenes. Does zazzle print everything for you or do you create all the products yourself? Sounds like a fun way to make a side income, I love these sorts of designing crafts. I’m so glad I read this post and found out about this!

      Yes, just like Etsy, we are independent artists and designers. We do not have to print anything, only upload our designs and fit them to the individual products we choose to place them on, and Zazzle has manufacturing companies who then in turn place the design upon the product for you. So if you are an artist, designer or photographer, you can market your creations with relative ease. Oh, and you choose how much commission you want to make – each individual listing allows you to set your own percentage of profit, which I think is pretty cool as well. Blessings!
