Beary Cheery Cheerleading Bear

Zazzle: First off, tell us a little bit about yourself.

Lauren: My name is Lauren.  I am 33 years old and I was born and raised in New Jersey.  Designing for Zazzle is my full time job! I found Zazzle by accident many years ago,but didn’t utilize it full force until a year and a half ago (so glad I did!)  I  It allows me to stay at home with my 9 month old daughter.  I also just started a site where you can purchase graphics to use on Zazzle, Dooni Graphics. I started this site because I know what it feels like to have a good idea but little capability to make an image to go with the concept.

Zazzle: What’s your inspiration for your designs?

Lauren: Many things inspire my designs.  It gives me a chance to express myself like nothing else. I am inspired by everyday life.

Zazzle: What has been your favorite design you’ve created, and why?

Lauren: My favorite designs is my “cute oh snap gingerbread man“. I like this design the best because it is both funny and cute!

Mommy and Baby Penguin

Zazzle: What is your favorite Zazzle feature? How do you use it?

Lauren: My favorite Zazzle feature is the quick create.  I love that I can produce many designs and I can offer them to the public in an organized and quick way.

Zazzle: Do you have any fun stories about being a seller on Zazzle?

Lauren: My hummingbird tie was worn by Ted Danson on the show Bored to Death!  Funny thing is, I didn’t even know about it until someone commented on my product to let me know it was in Entertainment Weekly!

Zazzle: What got you interested in selling your art on Zazzle?

Lauren: I went to school for graphic design and was really interested in working from my home. Zazzle = PERFECT!!

Zazzle: What tips can you give someone who is just starting out on Zazzle?

Lauren: The best advice I can give is to not give up!  I have come across so many creative and talented people that would throw in the towel too quickly.  It takes time.. oh, and it doesn’t hurt to have a web site to advertise yourself.

Thanks Lauren!

    Hi Lauren,

    DooniDesigns is fantastic, outa sight, and defintely to be appreciated. I am a photographer and I am looking to make some extra cash ($) using ZAZZLE but as yet I have sold nothing even though it’s been a couple of months since I first created my products on ZAZZLE. Lauren, if you read this, please contact me at: brcgatten@gmail.com or at my store at: http://www.zazzle.com/brucemg. I am eager to get your opinion on my work, and any advice or constructive criticism would definately be welcome. Also, anyone else reading this may do so also. I am looking for work here on the East Coast but I have no money to my name and am eager to make ($) to feed myself and loved one. So, any help and advice on how to use ZAZZLE would be nice. Thanx and Hare Krishna, Bruce
