As you have seen on my blog, I have a Cafepress Store! In all honesty, I don’t pay as much attention to the store as I’d like, except when I added new designs to help complete #8 from my 30 Before Thirty list last year. I treat it as a hobby store on the side that is mostly made of inside jokes or suggestions from family/friends.
While I’ve had this store for 5 years, it still makes me smile when I open my email to see a message that some random person I never met liked my design enough to purchase it for themself or a friend. For that, I thank you Cafepress Shoppers!
Thank you for my 2011 sales, which increased by 42% over the previous year! These earnings help to fuel my creative efforts, including last year’s excellent purchase of a new camera.
In honor of this great selling year, I put together a little list of some of the top selling designs!
Top Selling Baby Themed Design
There must’ve been a lot of cute little boys being born this year!
Top Selling Regional Design
I think the explosion of Jersey Shore, Real Housewives of New Jersey or Jerseylicious type shows that continued to be a hit in 2011, helped make this otherwise niche-y Jersey Girl At Heart design my third best seller!
Top Selling Holiday Season Design
I don’t even know how many times I watched Elf this Holiday Season, but I must not have been the only one enjoying the Will Ferrell flick!
Overall Top Selling Design
I guess all the ballerinas, cheerleaders, crafters, princesses and girly girls were looking for a glitzy design to wear this year!
