I think my designs work quite well with this product. And the best part is that they are actually reasonably priced!

I’ve spent several hours over the past weeks customizing my designs to put on these mats, some were quite old so it was hard to locate the files on my computer!

These are so nice I might have to get one myself and then review it.

You could even combine the yoga mats with matching products to round out your fitness gear, like a tote bag or leggings!

These yoga mats come with a strap, are only 3.6 pounds, and are made out of latex and heavy-metal-free materials.

Mandala PopSockets on Amazon!

popsockets iphone huawei samsung phone stand grip holder

I’m excited to announce that I’m finally selling PopSockets on Amazon with my mandala designs on them!

They are currently only available to U.S. residents only, but hopefully will expand to the UK, Germany, and Canada soon.

Please note that if you’re not located in the U.S. you may not be able to see the Popsockets.  However, if you go to the top left of the screen (on Amazon) where it says “Deliver To” you can click on that and manually type in a U.S. zipcode (ex. 90210) and then you can see the item. 

Unfortunately you won’t be able to ship to an address outside of the U.S. at this time.

So, what the heck are PopSockets anyway?

They are collapsible grips that stick to the back of your phone (or case) and can be used to hold your phone (great for photos and selfies), or as a stand so you can watch movies or otherwise go hands free!

I love using PopSockets on my phone and can’t live without them now, so be warned!

Here are a few examples of my mandala designs on PopSockets, and you can see all my current designs here. 

They make great gifts and stocking stuffers too!

Thanks for stopping by to check these out, and have a great rest of your day.

Selling your Art on POD Websites: TeePublic Edition

selling art online teepublic

I’ve recently started selling my designs on a new Print On Demand website, called TeePublic.  I’ve made a few sales so far, and I wanted to share with you my experiences.

Read on to find out more about selling art on TeePublic and see if it might work for you!

Open a free TeePublic store and start selling your artwork today!

First Impressions of TeePublic

  • This POD is very T-shirt focused (it is TeePublic after all).
  • Prices are comparatively very reasonable.  Maybe your friends/family won’t pay $30 for your t-shirt but they might be willing to pay $14!
  • Caters to branded and/or fan art.  (Personally I avoid this because I’m not willing to have my stuff taken down due to copyright infringement)
  • Punny and funny designs also seem to do well.

Ease of Upload

  • Very quick and simple uploading process.  Few steps.
  • Intuitive tagging (suggestions come up even before you start typing)!
  • Must use a .png image for the t-shirts (ie. no background).
  • You can upload patterns for some products like pillows or totes, but you can only use one version of the image, you can’t upload a different file for the t-shirt (so in that case there would be no t-shirt for that design).
  • As mentioned above, there is no ability to upload multiple versions of the same design to suit a different product type, so keep this in mind.
  • You can resize and centre your design easily.

TeePublic Storefront

  • Pretty basic. Focus is on the design and T-shirts.
  • No models, just images of the products by themselves.

Here is a screenshot of my store front:

T-shirt product page display:

Products and Pricing

  • A fairly small range of products but they are quite affordable.
  • Basic t-shirts are $14 for the first 3 days after upload, then they go up to $20.
  • T-shirts go on sale for $14 at least 1x per month. (Other products go on sale too)
  • A wide variety of shirt styles including hoodies and kids’ clothing are available.
  • They also have stickers, totes, tapestries, phone cases, mugs, pillows, notebooks and prints.
  • Prices in USD.

Shipping

  • Starts at $5.99 to the U.S. and Canada.

Payment

  • Paypal or Payoneer payment options.
  • Paid monthly on the 15th for previous month’s earnings.
  • Affiliate program available, but you have to apply.
  • They also have a “refer an artist” program, where you can potentially get paid if you refer someone to open a store and they make sales.

TeePublic Community

  • There is a Facebook group but it isn’t very active.
  • No obvious forum.
  • Ability to follow other designers but not to like their individual works.
  • Less sense of community than other platforms such as Zazzle or Redbubble.

Promotional Tools

  • You will get an e-mail once a month or so letting you know about upcoming sales.
  • In this email are links to download various advertisement templates catered to different social media platforms, which can be used and edited in Photoshop.
  • Teepublic advertises their top design picks on the homepage and through e-mail campaigns so if you can get noticed by them, they’ll do the work for you!

Summary

  • If your work is very graphic, and especially if you do fan art, TeePublic could be a great option for you.
  • Their website and uploading process is simple and easy to use.
  • Their affordable prices, especially $14 T-shirts, is an excellent way to entice buyers.

So, what are you waiting for?

Check out TeePublic today and let me know what your thoughts and experiences are in the comments below!

My Best Polyvore Sets

Unicorn Makeup Polyvore fashion set

Hey guys! You may have heard that the popular website Polyvore has been shut down :(.

If you didn’t know about Polyvore, it was a shopping based website where you could collect fashion, home decor, and other images from around the web and then create collages known as “sets”. These sets could be entered into contests and shared with friends.  It was pretty fun, especially for fashion lovers.

I used Polyvore to make a lot of sets, sometimes including my own designs from Zazzle and Society6!

Luckily, I was able to download all of my sets before the website shut down and they were gone forever.

Since the website no longer exists I thought I’d share a few of my best and favourite Polyvore sets here!

If a set includes my own designs I will list the product(s) below.

I’m pretty sad that Polyvore is gone since it was a fun and unique website! 

Does anyone know of any similar alternatives?  If you used Polyvore, what are your thoughts on the change?

Have a great day everyone.
 
Cheers,

Julie

Rose Gold Vintage Pattern

rose gold vintage pattern

Hello everyone!  Today I’m sharing a new version of my Vintage Pattern in a Rose Gold tone.

The original design was hand drawn, then scanned and turned into a pattern digitally.  I played around with a few colour combinations before settling on this one.  The muted pink tones add to the vintage feel of this artwork.

This vintage inspired pattern looks nice on many of the products in my Society6 and Redbubble stores!  Check out some examples below:

fashion accessories home decor pink unique tote

Rose Gold Vintage Pattern Tote Bag

A tote bag with this design adds class and a vintage vibe to any outfit. They’re handy for work, school, or heading to the beach. Tote bags can be purchased from both Society6 and Redbubble.

This pattern also works great as a mobile phone case and is available for several models in both of my stores, including for the latest iPhone.

This design works well as an A-Line Dress from Redbubble.

Check out my review of Redbubble’s A-line dress if you’re curious about how these dresses look in real life!

The final product I will share with you today is a wall tapestry, because I love wall tapestries.  They are available on both Redbubble and Society6.  I love tapestries because they are so versatile and show off the artwork really nicely.  This particular design would work nicely as a backdrop for photos or YouTube videos!
