How to Move Older Designs to New Products

By • 5 years ago with 12 replies already

Let’s talk about getting more ‘bang for the buck.’ Let’s say you have a design on a poster and it’s done really well in the marketplace; here’s how to extend your product offerings by putting that design quickly and easily across all products within ‘Custom Art and Posters.’

Here are the steps:

  • Go to your store where you sell the product you want to extend across other products.
  • Click on the ‘Statistics’ drop down arrow and select what will help you identify your top designs.
  • 01
  • Select ‘Sort’ so the top items come to the top.
  • 02
  • Click on the product with the design you want to copy over to a new product type.
  • Click on the ‘Customize It’ button
  • Click on the ‘Edit’ button and select ‘Copy’
  • 03
  • Open a new browser window with a blank of the new product type in it.
  • Click Edit and then select Paste (You may need to refresh the page or select ‘Clear side.’)
  • Viola!  Your design has been moved to a new product!   Now go ahead and click on ‘Post for Sale’ to publish your new product.


We’re encouraging you to do this because we want you to further succeed with designs that have already proven successful and have you put those on products that you may not have thought about that are similar in type. We continue to advocate for quality over quantity.

Thank you, as always, for all the talent you bring to the designer community.

  1. My concern was if I could do this with my products, can I copy and past from someone else. (Not that I would do this) To give myself a peace of mind, it did not work from other shopkeeper’s store. Of my own, I tried this from a t-shirt design to a postcard. It works. Not sure it is faster, but good to learn another way to do it.

  2. Great feature, very happy with this! It would be great if our customers were given this option too. Sometimes you see a nice image on a card and want it on a shirt but it is not offered as a shirt! I’m 100% sure it will increase the sales and make designers and Zazzle very happy!

  3. I can’t find the location of Statistics Dropdown area. I have looked over my stores and can’t find this. Thanks for your help

  4. for me this does not save much time as the tags for the copied design do not migrate over. stil have to fill out the tags and sale information for each individual product

  5. With the help of this technique, you can put sub-category
    under a main category. If you hire someone for search engine optimization, the person does much more than just make
    sure your page is ranked and clicked on. The very basic idea behind search engine optimization is choosing a targeted keyword or niche and building a site or article
    around this keyword.

  6. It does make it easier, but we still have to re-add the metadata, right? That doesn’t seem to go along with it- where we just tweak it a bit.

  7. Didn’t know that refreshing the page or ‘clear side’ works. Good to know! It was mentioned in Z forums that clicking on a different background color would also work. You could then change it back after pasting. (Really simple too.)

    Now, what would really, really help is if this glitch could be fixed altogether somehow! 🙂
