What Product Types Do the Best on Zazzle?

Zazzle has many gift products to offer. It is a fun custom design, print on demand, online shop to buy from and make money at. Setting up a shop on Zazzle is easy and free. Shopkeepers can make their shop as unique as they are. It is also an addictive place to be. Just like HubPages. If you are promoting your Zazzle shop, there is no better place to do that then promoting in in social media.

Personally I have wondered what product types do the best on Zazzle. I'm asking the questions here to see if we can all learn something and make our shops more productive. For those of you who don't have a Zazzle shop, maybe this can help for when you do get started.

This shopping site is constantly changing. Some items have disappeared along the way. Such as the Keds shoes for instance. But mostly, new products are added on a monthly and weekly basis. Making it hard to keep up with all the gift items to buy and sell. This is not a complete list of the product types, but items that have been on this quality gift site for years.

Together, let's see which ones work out the best: Binders, Invitations, Letterhead, Stationery, T-Shirts, Photo Cards, and Flyers. Rack Cards, Postage, Cards, Mugs, Calendars, Business Cards, Pet Clothing, Aprons, Bags, Bumper Stickers, Buttons, Embroidered Bags, Embroidered Hats, Embroidered Shirts, Hats, Keychains, Magnets, Mousepads, Photo Sculptures, Postcards, Posters, Skateboards, Stickers, Ties

Note that this can give you an idea while creating and promoting your shop. Of course if shirts are your big sellers may not be someone else's big sellers. These can change from month to month and year to year.

Great Photo Software on a Budget


Photo and Graphic Software You Will Love

Adobe Photoshop Elements 13 - View Here

Before we get started on voting on what sells best on Zazzle, to make any product look the best it can be, it first starts out with a good photo editing software.

Photoshop are far as I am concern is the best software for photo editing and for graphic designing. It is pricy and to have the latest upgrade you must be connected to the cloud.

Photoshop Element 13 is from the same creators, Adobe. It is the next best thing. I happen to know many designers who own this software and cannot be any happier with it. It is wonderful software to make your images on products stand out as the best they can be for those who cannot afford Photoshop.

      Zazzle is a fun place to post your nice designs and be able to earn something fromit. It is time consuming but when you get the hung of it, the sales start coming depending on your designs. I am glad I have sold a few tshirts, cards, stickers and cases as well. Check them out at my Zazzle Achempong store*

      What a great idea for a lens! It's interesting to see what sells. It seems that it depends on the individual making the products more than the actual product. If you create unique, appealing images it seems that they work well on a variety products.

      I have been working on my Zazzle stores for a couple of years now, though it wasn't until this spring that I really started focusing on it. It is interesting to see what is selling, this is a great lens! I have read over and over that tags are our most powerful tool.

      I have a small store there but stopped adding stuff there when I realized I'd have to promote it. I also find the prices a bit high, so am not sure if things will sell without me spending too much time there.

      Great lens. It's interesting to see everyone's take on what's selling. I just started with Zazzle and I'm now working on organizing my store better. I have been fortunate to sell some moose iphone covers already though. If you want to check them out you can.

      I actually just started with Zazzle and I would have to say the results have been very good with my two stores. I have sold mainly shirts, although many people on Zazzle tend not to do it and in some forums discourage it, I would put some focus on organizing your Zazzle Storefront and finding ways to drive traffic to it. check out my first lens as well:

      Thanks for such a fun lens. I've been with zazzle for a few years, and getting a check every month, so I was able to answer yes to most of your poll questions (ok, so skateboards just were not my thing to design for, but guess I should change that!). I need to start connecting my zazzle products to squidoo now, (ok, I know I've needed to do this but life just gets so busy I forget)... so now I'm very inspired to get started on it.

      I couldn't answer yes to any of the poll questions because I'm just discovering zazzle and about Squidoo. There is so much to learn and do, it's going to take me some time to grasp it all. But I'll get there with everyone's help. People like you have been great. Thanks.

      What an excellent way to do yur market research. I can't join any of these because I'm still not sure how Zazzle works in 'real life'. Why don't you write a Step by step guide to selling on Zazzle complete with how to avoid pitfalls? My main question is do I hav to actually buy the products or can I just make them, put them on line and then get the profits without spending anything? (I have looked at their site but can't quite see how it works in practice). I'm going to leave this lens open so that I can scrutinize it later! Many thanks.

      Really good lens! You know, the one thing I want to sell on Zazzle they don't have. Bookmarks. You can make business cards in the shape of a bookmark, but they only come in packs of 20. Not good for the average buyer who just wants perhaps one or two to give to a friend!
