    Hi there,

    Want to Tip you with information on a great website I have come across. I am a freelance graphic designer, working from home and usually don’t go looking around the Internet to sell my unused designs.

    Couple weeks back I went to the local designers group meetup, and sitting there sipping coffee, overheard one of the designers mention the name ‘GraphicMonk’ I was intrigued by the name, got home, googled and found the site. Essentially this is a site created by designers who had gigabytes of designs sitting around taking up space being forgotten on their computers who decided to create a website to sell it. They got a great response during their beta testing and have now decided to open by the flood gates for any creative designer worldwide to join for Free, upload their designs and sell through GraphicMonk.

    My first thought, yeah right! So, being skeptical, I signed up, put one of my designs up on this site last week and over the weekend someone bought it. Wow! This actually works, we’re my words. I am absolutely sold on their idea, and want to spread the word to as many designers as possible. Hence, tipping you off to go check out GraphicMonk.com

    I believe they are going to get big, the design I sold , I designed in 2010 & had totally forgotten about it. Now I can convert it to money. It’s a no-brainer. :)
