A few years ago, a friend told me about the cool shirt she had found online for her son who loves to play the violin. She commented that it’s difficult to find shirts for a specific interest at retail stores but she found some really unique and fun designs online. This was my introduction to print-on-demand companies. I already knew some companies on the internet could print your photographs on mugs or shirts but now I learned that a few companies offered the opportunity to share your personally created designs or photographs with people all over the world on a wide variety of items! I liked this idea because I loved drawing since I was little and I’d started to really enjoy designing and working on the computer as an adult. My wall space was already filled up to the point I couldn’t add any more drawings or paintings but I still needed a creative outlet! Zazzle became my new creative outlet. Every time someone ordered a product with my design, I felt so great! They had spent their hard earned money on something I designed and it was the best “pat on the back” I could wish for.
Now you might say, why zazzle? They are not the only print-on-demand company I could have used to produce my designs. Here are the simple reasons:
Working with a print-on-demand company allows me to do what I do best and enjoy most: create fun, unique designs that provide customers with meaningful gifts for their kids, friends or family. While I can only highlight some of my designs on my personal website, you can see the complete collection of products at www.zazzle.com/presentsoflove* Thank you for checking it out!
