Yes you can actually. First, click CREATE in the upper right corner menu. Then click Start New Design on the left. Select UPLOADS from the sidebar menu on the left. Select your image and add it to the design. Then you will have a DOWNLOAD button in the upper right corner. Idea

I've had 19 sales in 4 months (I started on December 28th 2015). So far I have 1450 products with about 290 pieces of art.

28 just isnt going to cut it. You need quantity in addition to quality. There are billions of products on Zazzle (a guess).

I used to make apps for the Android market, but each app takes a few months to make (if it is a very simple app, and this is as a solo designer doing everything from programming to graphics and sound). Compared to the Android market, this is much much easier. I can make a product in minutes that has every bit as much of a chance of earning as much money as a typical app. The head of EA came out and stated that most apps only make $2000 over their lifetime or less which is why big gaming companies don't like to put too much into them.

What's cool is that now I'm becoming a better graphic designer and I may even go back and make another app with my new skills.

But the trick has got to be volume. Learn Quick Create, and use it to pump out some volume. My goal is 5000+ products by Christmas of 2015, with about $500 in total sales by years end.

Topic: How often do you add new items/designs?
Milfords Posted: Sunday, April 12, 2015 5:16:40 PM
I just started at the beginning of 2015. At first I was kicking out new art to the tune of 3-5 pieces a day. Now its about 3 or 4 a week. I've gotten a little better at Quick Create and I'm now at 1050 items total. Now I try to create my art to fit the QC process so that I can add 9 items at a time if I am doing apparel (which is mostly what I do).

Each new art piece generates approx. 25 items depending on how I use it. I expected my creativity momentum to drop off, but it's more laziness. There is always something to draw that I haven't drawn yet, it just gets to be tedious.
