We are all aware of Shapeways and eBay and I've even seen Kickstarter used to try to get a new twisty puzzle sold. Here are a couple examples which come to mind:http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ifchicago/the-magic-cube-a-mathematic-3d-logic-puzzle
Which didn't get funded. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/danec/the-x-cube
Which did get the funding. Anyone here fund this and get their production puzzle? I'm curious how it turned out.
But the main purpose of this thread was to discuss other methods. I try to show my finished puzzles to friends and co-workers when I can and a few weeks ago we had an off site team builder for work. I was discussing my puzzles with, of all people, my boss and he suggested this website:http://www.etsy.com/
At the time I must confess that I had never heard of it before. But my boss mentioned that he had a relative selling products on this site and that she was having issues making items as fast as she could sell them. I've look at the site and see some wooden puzzles and the like but no twisty puzzles. Shapeways is a great site for selling unfinished kits but some of my puzzles require a fair bit of work to turn into a nice finished puzzle and I image that turns many potential customers off. I'm wondering if others have considered something like etsy as a method for selling finished shapeway puzzles or any other puzzles for that matter.
Considering the rate at which I make puzzles and the amount of free time I have, eBay is probably the best option for me but I was curious what methods others have used or even if there are other sites out there which like etsy I may not even be aware of.
