Some people have a gift to capture your attention; either by words, looks, creativity, or any other form that is like love potion to the eye of the beholder. I was hooked, in love, at first sight with one of the most beautiful world maps I have ever seen the moment I came across Paz’s Etsy shop: Sunny Champagne and it is a TRUE honor to feature him here on my Blog.
As it turns out; I seem to be one of many that have fallen in love with this amazing map as Paz tells me: “The ‘One Colourful World’ print is my best seller. It’s affordable, with vibrant colours and reminds us of all the beautiful places we’d like to visit someday.“
How would you describe your selling experience on Etsy?
“Sales have been pretty constant since starting my shop. A few pieces have been getting more attention on blogs lately and this helps a lot. I notice that good product pictures also attract more people. To stand out I try to putting more emphasis on quality and less on quantity. The vibrant colours and positive words also help to make connections.”
What got you started?
“I’ve been working as a freelance graphic designer/illustrator for the last 12 years. I started SUNNY CHAMPAGNE to express myself in ways I didn’t in my day to day work. I also had a goal (and still have) to be able to create while travelling the world with my wife and kids. It’s very possible with a successful online business. I’m still working on it!”
Where do you get your inspiration from?
“So many things and places. It can be a piece of music I listened to that popped an idea in my head or a quote I saw somewhere or a pattern I observed in nature. Taking some time off helps me the most by taking all that junk out of my head. Good ideas are born this way.”
What is your personal favorite item in your shop and why?
The “One Colourful World” print is my favorite. Probably for the same reasons other people like it. It keeps me dreaming of travelling the world. I also had a lot of fun creating it!
I’ve been posting affordable canvas prints recently and I’m happy about the way they come out! The Sun Salutation and One Colourful World (yellow)
Any tip you want to share with fellow Etsy sellers?
“Finding what you love and doing it is probably the best tip I could give. It’s not that easy though but people notice when you like what you do. It shows up in your work.
Also, make every customer feel special.”
Thank you so much for your time and beautiful art available to us. I wish you much success and that you will be able to travel your colorful world with your family very soon.
