Make Money when you Design your Own iPhone Case

In this post, I will share with you a great method to make money when you design your own iPhone case, in just a few clicks. You can earn a commission when the product sold with your design. This is a great way to make your own phone cases, but also, to make money.

Many websites allow you to earn some money creating designs. But, the best one that I’ve found is Zazzle. You can design your own iPhone case and earn 15% commissions from every sale. Your designs will be printed on real products, like T-shirts, Phone cases, iPad cases, speakers, Posters, Mugs, Accessories, and more.

Best of all, it’s for free, you don’t need to pay any fees. But, you get paid every time your design is sold. Another good thing is that the products are of good quality. The website receives around 33 million buyers every month, so, it’s a good opportunity to make extra money from your home.

The real hard work that you have to do is to drive traffic to your online store. You can do that using many different ways. So, let’s learn step by step, how to make money with your designs.

Designing your own iPhone case and make money


Make money designing iPhone cases

The first step is to create a unique and beautiful design that will attract visitors, and make sales and money. There are many ways to create your design, you can use Photoshop, the best one that I recommend. It helps to create a professional design.

But, if you wish to go with free software, you can use PhotoFilter or any other tool. The best way to create a general design that will be used on different products, and with different colors is to use a transparent background.

That way, your design will look great with any customizations. Keep your design on a PNG image format. And, don’t compress it when finished, you need a great HD photo.

Make sure that you create your own design, don’t use water-market design, they are protected by law.
Then, put your created designs on products.

Now, you have your design and you need to use it with real products. So, log in to your Zazzle account, then, start designing your iPhone case, or any other products that will make you money.

You can put your design on iPhone cases. They are popular and in demand, but also, you can create a T-shirt design and much more. You can also create text with your design, use the “edit” button to make the best design look.

Make sure that the product looks good from different angles. If you create an iPhone case, for example, try to rotate the products many times, from the left, to the right, this will tell you about any details that you need to adjust.


In this step, it’s recommended to put your design on different products as possible. I’ve seen someone who has around 2000 products with hundreds of designs. The more products you have, the more chances to sell designs.

Selling your designs

This step is the most important, and here is the hard work that you have to do. As with any product online, you need visitors to come to your store pages and buy your products. There are different ways to drive buyers to your store page, you can use freeways, such as social networks, your email contacts, your friends, forums, etc.…

Create a Facebook page to sell your designs.

Facebook pages are good places to promote your products and make money. You can create a page and then, get fans. But, don’t expect results unless you reach thousands of fans at least, maybe 2000 or 3000 fans can bring you some sales. But, you can expect real success when you have more than 20 000 fans.

You can get fans using the Facebook advertising program. The best thing is that if you don’t have money to advertise with, you can comment on posts with similar interests. So, look for pages about designing, iPhone cases, etc… And keep your posts and comments original and helpful.

Don’t put yourself as a spammer, users will report your account, and you will lose all.

Make sure that you use Facebook and Twitter without spamming, simply, you need people to “like” and “follow” your page. Then, you can expect sales from your own Facebook page posts.

You can also use forums to promote your products, it’s hard nowadays, but, if you choose the relevant forums, and make your signature as your “Online store”, you can make money with your designs.

Really serious?

If you’re really serious and want to make money with your designs. But also, have some money to invest, then you can advertise your Zazzle store with Google AdWords, or any other big publisher network. That way, you are guaranteed to get sales, just create a good list of keywords to receive the maximum quality clicks.


As with any other method to make extra revenue, your Zazzle store needs real work to promote it, and to make money. You can succeed if you work, but, don’t expect to create a store and start receiving money immediately to your PayPal account. At the same time, it’s not hard work if you’re a professional designer, this way your designs will sell themselves, creativity is the key
