Not sure the answer to that. When I first started on Z they had not so many products to design. Their market wasn't the paper products they are so focused on today.

T-shirts and mugs were the top sellers. They both were featured very well and folks came here to buy them. But now, t-shirts are not so prominent like so many other products Z has to juggle the promotions to see them.

There is just too much stuff...


Well that would explain a lot.

Most of my products are t-shirts, posters and mugs, and I made a killing with them.


Yeah, same here. those sales have dwindled. But I'm afraid to get too into invitations. I used to make a ton of money before other people came along and made better designs than me (mine were generic quick-create products, so I totally understand this). But the thing is, I've experienced an increasing number of customers who only buy 1 invitation instead of 50 or 100. I'm assuming that they are just printing them off at home or something. So I don't know if it's worth it to get into paper products.


Also, Amazon Merch is useless to me. They keep rejecting my designs for trademark infringement, but I have no clue what part of my design/title/description is infringing on anything.
