That’s amazing! Wow. I’ve still never randomly bumped into one of my items “in the wild,” but I’m always on the lookout. :) By the way, great portfolio!

Thanks dxc! I’m sure you’ll stumble upon your work one day. It’s a pretty awesome feeling when you do.


No way, that’s brilliant! Yeah that’d be great if you could.

Will do!


It’s encouraging to know that the printing companies think quite highly of GR items, or Envato items as a whole. It must be really exciting to see something of yours customised and printed in the ‘real’ world.

We print 200-300 orders per day, from all over the country. A lot of them are from bars and nightclubs, or event promoters. Others come from various small business’. Most of the people don’t have the design skills, or the budget to to hire a designer, so we see GR items pretty regularly. It really is a cool thing to see happening.

Ha that is cool! I always wonder what end products are with my items. I’d love to see one of my templates as a finished printed item!

Hey, the funny thing CRSDesign is, I’ve bought and used one of your magazine templates before! The client ended up printing it. If I get a chance, I’ll send you a digital sample of it.

I work at a printing company in Chicago, and I see graphic river templates come through there all the time. I wish there was a way to share them with you guys when I see them.

The other day a customer came in and was talking with one of my co-workers and said the booklet he was printing was from a template that he bought off GR. I told him I was an author on GR so he came over and looked at my profile and said “Dude, I’ve bought one of your items before!” He then pulled up my template on his website. It was a very satisfying feeling.

Just thought I’d share.

Nate

31 sales so far this month. Last month was horrible for me, so I’m glad to see things have turned around in October.

I liked that I used to be able to load the homepage on my iPhone and see my current balance displayed largely on the left hand side. Now I have to zoom in to see it in the upper right hand corner. Petty maybe, but it’s the little things…

My opinion, if anyone cares- I’m not feeling this new design at all. :kanyeshrug:

July has been good to me. Even made it back to the popular page.

Crazy, I just had 6 sales in the last 45 minutes. 2 of them already wrote for support, they don’t have Photoshop. :notfunny:

For me, I wouldn’t say sales are bad, but they are different. I will go 2 or 3 days with no sales (very unusual), but then I’ll have a day where I make 11 or 12. So they seem to be balancing each other out.

On another note, I just started a blog to increase my affiliate sales so I’m a little bummed to hear that affiliates are having trouble with search referrals. Hopefully that works itself out soon.

Thank you so much for your kind words, Nate. Interesting link, but for me I recognized that it is really hard to participate on a contest with a voting system via Facebook or Twitter. Your friends will be overwhelmed with your request to vote for your submission :) May be I think about it, but yeah…it is hard :)

I hear ya, but it might be worth for a Mac Pro! 2 of my friends already entered and it wasn’t bad, you can control how much or how often you ask.

Good luck on the contest! I will place a vote for you.
