When she isn’t looking at space, Laura also works on creating out-of-this-world (sorry for the pun) items for her Etsy, Oomigoomi, and for Redbubble.
Buy a gift for the pickleballer in your life or pick up a custom astronomy sticker.
How does Redbubble work?
Would you like some cool pickleball merch or a t-shirt with a telescope bouquet on it? Then Redbubble is the place to go. Redbubble is a place where artists upload their designs so that you, the customer, can buy those designs on mugs and dresses and mouse pads and stickers and phone cases and shower curtains and so much more! But how does it work?
- Step 1: Head to the Redbubble shop of the artist you’d like to buy from, my shop is right here
- Step 2: Click on “shop products”
- Step 3: choose a category items you’d like to check out. Interested in seeing t-shirts? Click on “clothing”. You’d like to buy a drink bottle or a hat? Click on “accessories”
- Step 4: Click on the item that you love, choose from any available options and click “add to cart”
- Step 5: Rinse and repeat all the of the above until your cart is full of tote bags and bucket hats and laptop cases
- Step 6: Click on your cart at the very top left of the screen and check out!
- Step 7: Excitedly await a visit from your friendly neighbour AusPost postie
How does Etsy work?
Etsy is a great online marketplace for individual creators and small businesses to sell their original, and often handmade, items. It works more like a traditional online shop.
- Step 1: Head to Etsy and browse items by searching for what you’d like, or head straight to the shop of your favourite creator. My shop is right here
- Step 2: Click on the item that you like, select from any options available, and add to your cart
- Step 3: Keep adding fun things to your cart until you have all the hand-made gear you heart designs
- Step 4: Click on your cart at the very top right and check out!
- Step 5: Excitedly await a visit from your friendly neighbour AusPost postie (again)
Wait, should I go to Etsy or Redbubble?
I can’t speak for all creators, but here are the differences between my Redbubble shop and my Etsy shop.
Redbubble has a fabulous large range of available items, So whether you’d like a bag or a dress or a bucket hat or a coffee mug, you can get those with your favourite design printed on them. But it doesn’t have the possibility of customisation.
Etsy has a smaller range of available items, but if you’d like me to add your name to a sticker or you’d like a hand-sewn pickleball tote bag (with a special pocket just for your paddle), then Etsy is the place to go. I’m working on adding even more customisable items to my Etsy, for example iron-on patches for clothes.
Whether you head to Etsy or Redbubble, thank you for checking out my shop!
