Zenspirations® Digital Downloads & Emoji Sticker Update

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

Hi Everyone,

In my September 5th blog post, Zenspirations® Emoji Stickers, I shared some of the designs I’ve been working on, and was delighted to get a lot of positive feedback. I am hoping to be able to launch the emoji collections before the end of the year, and thought this would be a good time to give you an update, and get some additional input. Here are some of the phrases from the Prayers & Get Well Wishes collections:

Here is a close up of two of the phrases:

Below are some of the words and phrases from the Encouragement and Congratulations collections:

Another close up:

I’m having such a good time working on the Emoji Stickers, that I’m wondering what other things I should offer in the app. Would you be interested in downloadable names and birthday messages like these?

If there is enough interest, I can format the names for you to use as your Facebook cover photo.

I’m also thinking of offering Zenspirational images, like the ones below, as downloads and/or prints.

Here are a few close-ups:

I’m trying to finalize the collections, and would really appreciate your input. As an incentive, I will give everyone who leaves a comment with their thoughts a free sticker pack of their choice when they are ready! Here’s what I would like to know:

  1. Would you buy a hand-lettered name for yourself or someone else? If so, which would you be most likely to buy:
    1. Name only
    2. Happy Birthday + the name
    3. Name formatted for Facebook Cover Photo
    4. Other:______________
  2. How much would you pay:
    1. for one name: ______
    2. for 3 names: ________
    3. for 5 names: ________
  3. Would you buy a Zenspirations art piece for yourself or someone else? If so:
    1. Which of the designs shown above would you buy?
    2. How much would you pay for a design?
    3. Would you be interested in scripture designs?
    4. What other types of designs would you like?
  4. Which interests you the most?
    1. Emoji Stickers
    2. Names
    3. Zenspirations art pieces
  5. Are there any specific images, names or phrases that you would like me to include?
  6. Are there other ideas or suggestions you’d like to share?

Thank you, in advance, for your help! I am really looking forward to your input.

Stay Zenspired,

Joanne

  10. I Defintly buy a name to use in Facebook. I’m not sure in pricing but if they go a better pricing when you buy more then one is a good chance that I get them. Would love scriptures writing and the zenspiration art pieces are my favorites. With the new strong bible journaling community I think it would be great to have the 2” bookmark size zenspiration do we can use it in our bibles. Thank you for what you do. God bless you

    Emoji Stickers VERY MUCH!
    Names SOMEWHAT
    Zenspirations art pieces YES, I like 5he idea.
    Are there any specific images, names or phrases that you would like me to include?
    Are there other ideas or suggestions you’d like to share? If you created a line of emoji‘s that were in the shape of lips, you would sell several thousand at least! Also, emoji stickers in the form of your art pieces above, allow us to leave positive comments on social media.
    Also, there are many of us in MLM businesses that utilize a ton of social media marketing. Market to us by giving us tools to attract the eye of our customers and our groups or on business pages.
    Please feel free to contact me through my email if you would like to have a conversation about some of the ideas I have. I truly love your work and own most of your coloring books!

  12. First of all, I would love if the names were an app. How cool would that be? I’d be willing to pay market value for that!! I would love to give my friend a copy of your ten commandments in a smaller version of course. She loves that kind of thing. I would love some of your other pieces as well. I would be willing to pay market value. I am so excited to see what will come of these musings!! Best of luck to you!!!

  13. In answer to the Questions : 1: Name only 2:Gosh, that’s a hard one 3: I would purchase the art pieces for others – and I love them all. Again, not sure on pricing – guess it would depend upon the size if a print, and the quality on a download. 4: Names and art pieces. 5: Names – there are so many variations, it would be great if it were by request (I for example can NEVER find my name). 6: these are all amazing and I can’t wait to see the final results.

  14. My family would love to get their names in an email. I think specifically of the kids for the emoji stickers, but older family would like them too. Sorry, I have no idea how to price an app.

    Just because I cannot talk
    does not mean I have nothing to say!

    it gives me patience with my son on
    a daily basis!!!!!

  18. 1. All of the above!
    2. 0.99 each? With a reduction for 5. I am a terrible pricer
    3. The two you enlarged are my favorites but I like them all. If they are small digital prints for Facebook, not sure maybe 2-5 dollars. For larger paper numbered prints, depending on size, 15-30 dollars. 150 to 300 for originals. I lover the scripture designs but other uplifting things are great as well.
    Most interested in emojis and prints. Love the names as well.

  26. I LOVE the emojis and would certainly buy them!!! I’d also buy the names and birthdays …. not sure about cost … many are $.99, so that might work for one collection, then make all collections available at a discounted rate.

  31. Joanne … ALL your work is awesome and I would love to be able to choose single for digital download as I don’t live in the USA. Pricing could be higher for singles with discounts for the more one purchases perhaps.
    But as these will be printed and sold in the USA I guess, I will probably be happy to pay USd10 for a set.
    My favorites are the encouragement ones.
    And I’d buy them all if I Could!

  32. 1..I really try to not purchase things like this. They could become addicting to me.

  37. I feel pretty uninformed. Are these downloads that can be added to emails? If so, can they be shared on computer messages without infringing on your copyrights? If not, what would be some of the purposes? Sorry, but I can’t answer your questions without an explanation. Did I miss it in one of your recent blogs?

  38. Well I like every single one of these new ideas! Your art makes me happy! I’d buy Name & facebook cover photo for maybe $2 each? I’d for sure get one for myself and others too. I Love the scripture designs, I have your book on Bible Journaling. It’s hard to pick a particular design as I love them all. Looking forward to their availability! Thanks for sharing with us. <3

  39. Your work inspires me and always lifts my spirit on low days.
    1. Name only
    2. Under $10 for 1, 3 for $25? If it is digital only, so no supplies, no postage, none of that, I’d go lower than for anything supplied in print.
    3. Yes. Really love them all, but most likely I’d be interested in the “symphony” and “single loving act” pieces. Really had to choose. $15 or so in print if mass produced? Would also make a difference in price on the size of the image. Yes on scriptures.
    4. Imojis stickers and art pieces – most interesting; Names, less so.

  40. 1. 1 Name Only
    2.One Design 2.00 Two Designs. 4.00 Five Designs 5.00
    3.i would definitely be interested in scripture designs. I like I’m praying for you design. I’d pay 3.00 to 5.00. I’d love scripture verses, inspirational, motivational, encouraging words.
    4. I love them all! Beautiful work! I guess my favorite is the stickers.
    5.Symbols of hope, biblical things, inspiration, encouragement,
    6. Same as I mentioned above.
    You do beautiful work!!

  41. 1. Name only.
    2. One name $5, 3 names $10, 5 names $15.
    3. Hard question. I really love the A to Z and would have a good chance of buying it for myself. I also really like the inspirational pieces like “Do something astonishing.” Price really depends on size, quality and delivery format.
    4/5/6. I think that what distinguishes you the most from most other ZIA artists and/or inspirational artists is also one of the the things I most likely and appreciate about your artwork. Besides your incredible use of colour, I love your dangles. The interplay of connected horizontal bands and vertical lines along with the interspersed hearts, arrows and spirals are works for to me.

  42. 1. For me AND someone else – name, FB,
    2. Start at $10 and then discount for multiples.
    3. I would buy for both – art and scripture startibg at $15.
    4. All but I especially like the idea of the emoji stickers becausectheu are so bright and inspiring.
    5. Maybe have an alternative to create your own by submitting words or phrase.
