New On-Demand Products

The best thing about selling on-demand is you never know what cool new products might get added to the range next. Here’s a few new things I’ve enjoyed adding my characters to.

paper cups

Paper plates have been pretty high on my next-to-order list and now Zazzle do paper cups too. Best party ever! I only have a few of my designs available so far but more to come over the summer.

Beach Towels at Society6

Just in time for your summer holiday, Society6 have added beach towels. They look so fun with my colourful patterns. You can also buy smaller hand and bath towels.

5 A Day pouch set at Society6

Zipper pouches have been available in my Redbubble and Zazzle stores for a while now but the ones at Society6 look especially nice. They come in three sizes from $14 and are fully lined. You can even buy a matching set of 3 for a special offer price – so cute!

Adventure iPhone cases at Society6

If you’re an adventurous outdoorsy person (or just super clumsy) you might like the new adventure iPhone cases at Society6. They’re not cheap at $45 but with a shock-absorbing rubber exterior, sealable ports, covered buttons and a thin touchscreen cover, your phone should be pretty safe!

iPhone Wallets at Redbubble

Another option are these nifty new iPhone wallets at Redbubble with a book design and space for your credit cards, plus you can even fold it into a stand. (As I write this, only a few of my designs are showing up, but hopefully they’re all there now)

Chiffon tops at Redbubble

Redbubble’s extensive apparel range now includes drapey chiffon tops. They look like a nice lightweight option for summer and are available in XS – 2XL for around £20.

As always, keep an eye out for offers and discounts and send me a photo if you buy something!
