My 1,000th POD sale – Rover P5B on a black Classic T 🙂
As anticipated by people who have been doing POD for some years November and December were stellar months. My sales had been building up steadily since I stumbled upon my niche of “classic vehicle outlines” in May, reaching 75 for the month of October. Almost tripled in November with 208 sales, and doubled again with 405 sales in December!
Had some great reviews too, one of my favourites being on Amazon for my IH Scout II design on a hoodie, titled “Well-received gift”: “Hubs loved this shirt. Very unique and understated, which he prefers”. Fantastic, unique and understated is exactly what I’m aiming for.
I now have 483 designs listed, 313 vehicles and the rest photos and miscellaneous. So far in 2020 I’ve made 81 sales, bringing me up to this milestone today 🙂 Looking forward to a productive year!
Outline line drawing of a 1938 Chevrolet Master 2-door sedan, based on my photo of the example in the Sharjah Classic Cars Museum (UAE). Really happy with the way this one turned out:
Just sold on an XL Art Print, my 700th POD sale 🙂 I didn’t have time to post about my 500th and 600th sales as I was so busy creating content ready for the anticipated Christmas rush, which has arrived as promised – 208 sales in November (compared to 75 in October) and 183 already in December
As always my thanks to everyone who has spent money on one of my designs, very much appreciated!
200th POD (Print On Demand) sale today, Dodge Durango outline on an asphalt T-shirt
It took 269 days to make my first 100 POD sales, just 47 for the second hundred – after a slow start doing better every month and learning a lot along the way. So much so that I spent most of August updating my earlier designs, evidently a phase many of us go through!
My sincere thanks as ever to everyone who has bought one of my works, very much appreciated and I hope you enjoy them 🙂
This particular design based on a Durango I owned for a couple of years in Bahrain, the perfect car for me in that place at that time, very fond memories of it
A departure from the monochrome pencil lines of my current classic car outline drawing project, I was playing around with ideas for Halloween and Christmas special editions based on my line drawing of a 1930s Morris 8 (which seems to lend itself to this sort of experimentation) and this is where it lead…
Not really what I had in mind but interesting enough in their own right – I especially like the way the car outlines seem to float above the background in an almost 3D effect – that I have made them available in my soitwouldseem shops on Teepublic and Redbubble where they can be applied to print-on-demand products including T-shirts, prints, posters, clocks, mugs, phone cases etc
Just made my 100th POD (Print On Demand) sale, a 1961 Morris Minor outline on a T-shirt
After a slow start it’s picking up nicely. Perseverance pays off! My monthly sales to date this year: 1,1,3,6,9,25,43 and so far 11 in the first 4 days of August. Mainly classic car outlines although some of my photos have sold as well. My top sites are Teepublic, Redbubble and Amazon Merch
My sincere thanks to everyone who has bought one of my works, very much appreciated and I hope you enjoy them. I’m delighted by every sale, that someone liked my work enough to pay to have it printed on clothing, wall art, phone cases and so on. You are all awesome 🙂
Thanks also for the various comments I’ve received, one from Australia sums up what my designs are about: “Simple but great, stands out to all who know the vehicle” – I deliberately don’t add any text, I let the image do the talking. I can’t respond to comments on POD sites as they are anonymous, but I do read them and hereby my thanks!
I’ve had some of my images – as a “Silver level” member limited to 10 at a time – listed on YAG (Your Art Gallery) for a while now, my “Kissing Camels” image was a Runner Up (voted into 4th place, from 80 entries) in their “Animal Kingdom” contest last year and plenty of interest in my work but no sales as yet…
Now a couple of my images – “Stripes” and “Kaleidoscope” (aka “Spectrum”) – have been selected for inclusion in the YAG Curate collection: “our new B2B service, through which we hand select and curate complementary images and offer them to buyers in sets at an affordable price point. Our customers can purchase YAG Curate sets as is, simply sizing and arranging the pieces to enhance an interior space. Or, they can customize the collections, swapping out images better suited to their style and project needs.”
I will receive commission for every sale of my images – looking forward to it!
Some line drawings that aren’t cars… Leyland Titan bus, Piper Cherokee PA28, Ducati 916, Cessna C172, Kenworth W900, Honda C70 “Super Cub”
As usual all have both black line and white line versions, and are available in my soitwouldseem shops on Teepublic and Redbubble where they can be applied to print-on-demand products including T-shirts, prints, posters, clocks, mugs, phone cases etc
