    Etsy + CreativeMarket are my favorites. Easy set-up as well.

    I think shutterstock.com is the best because it's the most famous.

    +1 for envato - if you come up with something great you can actually make a lot of money there. iStock is also fantastic but you have stiff competition - its hard to gain enough traction to make a living from it - but if you're really good then get on it. If you've got time to invest in getting set up - you have nothing to lose at all.

    Stay away from crowdsourcing in my opinion. I've assessed places like 99designs from both sides of the fence, and I've actually sourced a few projects through there myself where i've been working with a tight budget. From what I see for the designers (i signed up for a designer account too) - you end up doing a massive amount of spec work for absolutely no return - you're very very lucky if you win 1 out of 10 - much likely far less. It borders on a complete waste of time - unless of course you're a gifted artistic genius who spills incredible ideas every time you speak - then you might make a modest income from it ;)

    As mentioned previously, I also recommend Envato and the Creative Marketplace. You can quickly earn some money that way.

    1- Keep it simple
    2- Use your elements in different designs and color schemes (a lot)
    3- Tag tag tag

    I m a graphic designer as well and I started on etsy.com

    my experience is very good so far and the income (for me) is like a part time job.
    But there are many designers who make a really good income, depends how much time & effort you will give to your shop, the more it will give back :)

    Plenty of people sell ready to print customized cards/birthday graphics on Etsy. I recommend you have some good pictures of them printed out to use on the site if you're going that route.

    I agree about 99designs. I really like the flexibility of sites like Creative Market where you can upload your products and have them automatically downloaded by customers. This allows you to work on other projects that may bring in passive income versus working on many revisions on custom work for clients.
