hi there-
it has been suggested to me that i try selling some of my photos to scrapbook paper companies..... they use photos sometimes as designs for their paper.  anyway, the person who said this, thought my more abstract nature photos would appeal to some companies, but i never got the name of any companies from her to try.  i was wondering if anyone here could help me out with that.  thanks!!

Just walk into a local Archivers or Michael's or whatever you have in your neck of the woods and start taking down company names.

There's also online places like istockphoto.com and adobe photo that take submissions on a contract basis you could check out. Just google "stock photos", see what comes up and start making inquiries.

I sell my photos through www.zazzle.com which is like cafepress except i've had more success with zazzle!

I also sell through stockphoto sites -
Also use istock as mentioned in the prev post and www.bigstockphoto.com but for me personally I sell the most with shutterstock.com.

Don't know anything about scrapbook paper companies though, if you could get in there as well...... wow! Good luck Smiley

I should point out that:
Each time someone buys a product you created, you will earn up to 17% of the sale.
on Zazzle. 17 percent isn't that much.

And someone on flickr said (I don't know if it's true for sure) that producing with them gives them rights to yours stuff to a degree.
