Affiliate Links

I’ve placed affiliate links on this site, and on some of the designs I’ve posted online.  I may receive a small percentage of the purchases made through these links (at no cost to you).  The programs vary, but the percentage is often of the full value of your cart, not just the items that were linked to, but only applies if the item is purchased within time limit after the link is clicked.


Why use affiliate links?

To be honest, I have mixed feelings about using affiliate links, but I figured I’d give it a try.  I’m posting designs and blog posts with links to products I’ve bought, so it just made sense to turn them into affiliate links and make a bit of money to help support my hobby. It also adds some incentives for me to put more effort into writing proper descriptions, posts, and providing links where they’re helpful (something I’ve been terrible at as I’d prefer to be designing, printing, or photographing).  The vast majority of the links are to products I’ve purchased, but I will occasionally post a link to a category of products, usually because I can’t find the exact product I own or because I think there may be better options available.

I’ll try to make it clear whenever I use an affiliate link by marking it with an asterisk (*), and I’ll leave it up to you to decide whether you want to use it or not.  Many thanks to everyone who have made purchases with these links, I really appreciate the support, but please don’t feel obligated use them.


Sites I’ve set up affiliate links for:

Amazon* – is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to

Banggood* – Banggood ships worldwide for free, usually from China.  Their prices are usually pretty good, and they ship pretty quickly (at least to California).  I usually get stuff in about 1 to two weeks, so a week or two faster than most of the Chinese companies.

DealExtreme* – Dealextreme ships almost anywhere in the world for free, but shipping is slow, usually 2-4 weeks to California.

eBay* – Links to eBay are to the US site.
