One Designer's "Leftover" is Another's Treasure; Graphic Leftovers Breathes New Life Into Unused Artwork

Share Article

GraphicLeftovers.com -- an innovative new marketplace dedicated only to member-generated graphics and illustrations. Designers can sell their "leftover" or unused artwork and buyers can find high-quality, easy to use designs quickly and inexpensively.

It's a revolutionary way to organize social bookmarking and search, called Sprouti. Set to launch late Summer 2008.

Digital Leftovers, LLC, announces GraphicLeftovers.com -- an inspiring marketplace dedicated to graphics and illustrations! With an estimated 200,000 professional graphic designers working in the U.S. Graphic Leftovers is truly an inspiration in itself, providing a haven where designers can sell unused graphics and illustrations and buyers can find high-quality, easy to use designs quickly and inexpensively -- sometimes even for free.

"Don't be fooled by the name "leftovers," said Kelly Jay, graphic designer and co-founder of Digital Leftovers. Graphic designers are usually asked to provide several different designs and multiple themes for a project. One of them is selected, but what happens to all the other great designs? "They come here. We believe in going green! Artists can recycle their great designs and in return they can earn extra cash."

While other sites focus primarily on photography and view design as an afterthought, Graphic Leftovers concentrates on providing graphic solutions such as logos, icons, symbols, illustrations and templates, and recently added, digital scrapbooking content -- and all files are provided as fully-editable files. Graphic Leftovers uses a micro-payment system similar to other member-generated sites where contributing designers determine the value of their artwork between 0 (free) and 10 credits and receive $.52 per credit, per download. These attractive returns have provided Graphic Leftovers more than 3,000 unique visitors in April and 6,000 in May.

"We already have lots of great traffic coming to the site -- not bad for a site we haven't advertised yet," said Daniel Errante, co-founder of Digital Leftovers. Graphic design bloggers are also responding well, writing articles about the innovative idea and unique marketplace. "Inspiring bloggers to provide an in-depth review of your website is a good indicator that you are onto something good! We're also excited about our next big idea," Errante continued. "It's a revolutionary way to organize social bookmarking and search, called Sprouti. Set to launch late Summer 2008."
