HELP

I've got idea to sell drawings online with a website that takes your artwork and puts it onto products for you e.g. t-shirts, mugs, phone cases, pillows etc... Then seller gets a big cut of what sells.

Anyway I'm going to need ideas/feedback
(i can do commissions once set up).

I've found www.zazzle.co.uk and redbubble.com to do this... unsure which to use yet. Any ideas?

Here's first draft of a design I mocked up (will be made neater and brighter promise)

First 2 chicks will say "cheep cheap" and last will say "I'd rather be expensive".

Theme for this is kawaii mostly animals or food.


Don't worry it's only a bad day, not a bad life.

That's a cute design.  I know that people love animals. I'm always seeing one buy clothing or hand bags with cute animals on them. Are you planning to do other little animals? The only suggestion is, to talk to someone you know and trust who has or who is into selling merchandise. Selling ones products can be great but also it can be extremely dangerous, I don't know much about that company Zazzle but hopefully they won't take advantage of you.

It's a free site so you don't loose that way. They take some money from sales you do.
I'm also doing cute kawaii designs with food on them such as biscuits.
Thanks @angelinamc for the delightful feedback.

Zazzle is really big in America (aka my friends mom uses it to buy stuff) but I know they don't scam you or take your money wrongly so I would probably suggest zazzle since it is more credible and well known. But yeah I that would be really awesome. I think it would appeal to a lot of younger people that are into the more pastel culture if you would do like grid print things with cute designs or something along those lines, so you could do a variety of like cutesy things like you did there with the chicks haha.

I'm also doing stuff like this wallet: http://postimg.org/image/tzysk34jt/

A lot of people who are into kawaii Japanese would be into the cute style. (that's my theory anyway).
Maybe even children's clothing would be pretty.

Have you ever thought of making some of your designs in here and then maybe tweet them, or put them on facebook and see how ones respond to them? This is a designing site maybe even post them in there and get every ones feedback in here. Seeing them on a model, making T-shirts with your cute animal prints and hand bags etc. When you use twitter to advertise them maybe you can ask for ones opinion. That's the only thing I can suggest. Or have you tried just making your design on the computer then print it on a iron on transfer and make your own just one or two and then have some one wear then take a picture of it then show it to others. That could just be a prototype.
