Tweet Business of the Day: 13 Black Cats Designs

Who: Nikki Cutro, 42, @blackcatdesign

What: Original artwork, photography and illustrations

When: 2007

How: Cutro was working as a freelance illustrator and fine artist when she came across and decided to put some of her work up for sale in one of the site's "stores."

"I didn't expect much, but it started to sell quite well."

Today she sells invitations, greeting cards, mugs and more that are emblazoned with her work and can be personalized on the site.

Where: Union, N.J.

In her own words: "I hand paint and draw a good majority of my designs. A lot of fine artists on Zazzle have a unique look to their stuff, but I try to mix it up a bit and do different techniques and subjects."
