After graduating with a degree in psychology and spending some time job-hunting, TreasureTheMoments found out about Zazzle and turned a hobby of designing in her downtime into a lucrative store on our site. She took some time to talk to us about her products and why — when in doubt — leopard print and pink are her go-to patterns and colors.
I’m mostly self-taught — I taught myself how to use photoshop and took some time to inspect Zazzle, the products and the design tool.
I love making products that are pink and girly. I gravitate towards as much “bling” as possible and animal print. My designs are bold, sassy and loud — it’s for the “confident and popular woman — who owns it.” It’s been a hit, especially with women in their teens to women in their late 20s and early 30s.
Invites are my most popular products. People have also requested coordinating products, in addition to the invites, for events spanning from weddings to baby showers. Designing coordinated products for events is my specialty — I’ll usually design a whole set around a customer’s tastes and vision.
My advice to others on Zazzle is to be persistent and have faith in yourself. Be authentic and be true to your own style. Someone out there will like it.
