On a side note: there is no legal or ethical requirement on the profession designer. Anybody can call himself or herself a designer. There is neither a real designer nor a fake designer. You can debate, what is or isn't a good design. But anybody can call him-/herself designer.

Love
Happy Holiday Season to you, too.




You can say that about so many professions. Someone who teaches can be a teacher, someone who preaches can be a preacher, someone who sings can be a singer, someone who paints can be a painter etc, but they are not professionals. I am a professional designer. There is a difference as in all other professions. I am not a hobbyist or an amateur. Zazzle is just something extra that I do. I don't need to explain further. Its not a debate. Enjoy your Zazzling.


I wasn't distinguishing amateurs from professionals. I was pointing out that there is no real in the profession of designers. [EDIT] Risking to annoy you further: the definition of professional is often defined by the ability to make money of the activity and not the skill. So by that definition, there are no amateurs and hobbyists on zazzle. [/EDIT]
