 Greetings from a Digital Art Expressions Las Vegas, Nevada.
Cost to create these images between $150.00, and $500.00, On Zazzle Your cost "FREE!" Why Because you don't have to pay for my services

Greetings from Digital Art Expressions, Las Vegas Nevada. Thank you for visiting.

 Here is the skinny on Zazzle, when you first visit the Zazzle site first off you notice that pricing seems a bit high. The reason in my opinion is because they are always having sales, midnight sales, holiday sales, 4 hour sales and sales for the sales. There are only 2 reasons anyone visits Zazzle, one, to buy an item because of the designs or to create your own.  If you find a design you like bookmark that page your best bet is to sign up for the news letter they offer to take advantage of the midnight and 4 hour sales. 
 Lets talk about creating your own or to be more precise, creating your own product design. It is not as easy as you may think that is because there are guidelines that you should follow, if you have time!. Your best bet is to find a template already made then half your work is done, that is why almost all my work is on template format.

 "NEW! I have finished, Photo Album 1. There are over 50 mixed designs for you to view. Some can even be used as a logo. These images are larger then the featured products images giving you a chance to view more detail on the designs themselves. For those who have made a purchase I am so grateful for your visit and purchase. My goal is provide a better shopping experience. Photo album 2 coming soon! Thanks. Bill"

 Mardi Gras, also known as Fat Tuesday (Mardi Gras is French for "Fat Tuesday") or Shrove Tuesday, is the last day of feasting before Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. Mardi Gras falls on Tuesday, February 12, 2013.

Here is the key there are many templates on Zazzle, but  not one template will fit all your needs, you will find this statement all over my stores, (The overlay Zazzle uses causes a slight blur and makes the image darker and then it really is. Best view large and in the design window. Note: If you use a template. change text, add an image, you should view your final changes in the customize edit window before you purchase.
Reason your changes may go beyond the safe area. Font point size is 9pt. I choose the bold font because at 9pt other fonts will be hard to read. This image created in Corel Draw X5, up-loaded @ 300ppi. Backgrounds will fit all sizes. Thanks, Bill) They should have in part the statement above on all product windows but they do not.

Zazzle has recently added customer reviews, a BIG mistake, Why? Because you visit a product page unless you read the small print you immediately assume that it is referencing the artists product you are viewing, this is not the case on my products. Sorry to say but there are some who create designs on the fly and something does not come out right is not my fault and I should not be punished because of there error.  

Here are some suggested text to add to apparel and other products. When visiting Louisiana it is good to have a little French on your products.
 Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler! sometimes used  Laissez Le Bons Temps Rouler! (French: "Let the good times roll!"). C'est Bon! . (French: That's all right. 2.It's nice It's Good!).  C'est la vie! (French: That's Life / This is Life".) Appelez-moi!  (French: Call me!). La Reine! (French: The Queen!). Vive La Reine! (French: Long live the Queen!). Saisir la nuit! (French: Seize The Night!). Vivez la vie! (French: Live the life!). joie de vivre. (French: joy of living; enjoyment of life). Vive La Roi! (French: Long live the King!). La Roi! (French: The King!). Vive la Louisiane!  (French: Long live Louisiana). Le Bouffon. (French: The Jester).  Pirate Roi des Rios! (French: Pirate king of kings).  Masque de l' Squelette. (French: Mask of the Skeleton). Prêtresse vaudou. (French: Voodoo Priestess). Sorcier-docteur (French: Witch Doctor).
R.S.V.P. stands for a French phrase,  "répondez, s'il vous plaît". All were checked through different sources then Google Translate.

If you should browse my Zazzle store you will find more helpful suggestions for making your design or purchase.

Please Note: Not just for Mardi-Gras
(Artist concept poster. All sizes .) Queen of Genii. Guardian of the spirit.
Research-History. GENII/GENIUS Slate 14c.,from L. genius "guardian deity or spirit which watches over each person from birth; spirit, incarnation, wit, talent," from root of gignere. "beget, produce". Meaning "person of natural intelligence or talent" first recorded 1640s. From Mark Twain "then the King & Queen of the Genii". Letter To Pamela A. Moffett 9 and 11 March 1859,New Orleans, La.

Please throw my designs!:-)
The throwing of trinkets to the crowds was started in the early 1870s by the Twelfth Night Revelers, and is a time-honored expectation for young and old alike. From the 1870s, Popular throws include cups (otherwise known as New Orleans dinnerware), long pearl beads, stuffed animals, buttons and even shoes!. They have become collector's items.

"Check out Mardi Gras Throws" or Buttons. You will not find them anywhere else"!
It takes A lot of time and effort and research for me to create great designs with Mardi Gras standards for example, Rex, the King of Carnival, selected the Mardi Gras colors and assigned meaning to them in 1892. Purple stands for justice, green for faith, and gold for power.
Every Zazzle Product will have a Matching Mardi Gras Design. For example, there is the Queen, The Joker and the Clown for starts. Plus I will be adding new sections that are not on the Zazzle Menu like "Mardi Gras Throws" and "Certificates" to begin with. Thanks.

Footnote: You don't have to buy multiples of the same button to receive a quantity discount. You'll receive a quantity discount on any order of 10 or more buttons!

Footnote: On some of the photo, Rack post cards and flyers I placed the Louisiana Bicentennial design seal that I made. A great show of support and some great throws. Under the seal says "seize the year".

The population of New Orleans more than doubles with visitors this day. Thursday night starts off with a bang in an all-women's parade called Muses. The parade is relatively new, but its membership has tripled since its start. It is popular with its throws (highly sought after decorated shoes) and fun themes poking fun at politicians and celebrities.
