Seller Spotlight: Samack

by

Samack has always drawn. She took art classes in high school and college and has always known that she wanted to do something with art. She abandoned her passion to pursue other opportunities and focus on her family, but now she’s “finally found [her] first love again.” Samack talked to us about her background and some of her favorite designs.

I discovered Zazzle in November of 2007. I searched for a company that would allow enough text on the inside to include our annual family Christmas letter and Zazzle had the perfect product. The next year I designed some t-shirts for family gifts and realized I could post them for sale. The t-shirts started selling and that was the beginning of my store. I was having a blast creating them! I designed all day long, every day and loved every minute of it. Today I mostly sell wedding invitations. My store has over 31,000 products, with over 12,000 that are wedding related.

My tips for other designers on Zazzle is “don’t give up and do what you enjoy.” Post new products everyday if you can, even if it is just going to an existing design and posting a new product from that design.

Here are some of my favorite products:

Another invitation is my heart leaf tree which began as a photo I took of a very beautiful tree with red fall leaves.

This one actually started as a photo of a wild flower – Queen Anne’s Lace that I actually pull from my perennial garden.

I also love working with interesting textured backgrounds like this one that has a burlap or linen look.
