Printable’s are very simple to make, they are something that you can use to present your different templates and different types of printable journals that people love to do. Printable Journals and financial journals are really big thing right now. COVID pushes people to just really be at home and to be able to print your own content from home and that’s pretty great right now.
is it worth selling printable’s on Etsy?
Principles and templates can really give you a great residual income as a graphic designer. Being a graphic designer most of our clientele or most of our profits come from custom work normally. This allows you to earn money while sleeping. You’ve put in the work now you can sell a great product for somebody else to DIY their own brand into your product Template. It’s is a great platform for you to sell your products they normally allow digital products and printable so it’s really easy to integrate what you have going on. There are other places that you can sell your digital products like creative market or the font.com or your own website also. I definitely think that it’s worth it to sell your digital products on Etsy I believe creative market will give you a bigger profit and better clientele but Etsy is definitely a great platform for your digital products.
Can I create my own personal templates in Canva?
Canva allows you to create amazing templates for your customers to use over and over and over again when they want to. This allows your customers to have unlimited revisions and do what they want exactly because they know what their vision looks like. This also allows you to create residual income or as I like to call sleep coin.
- Sign up for Canva for Work (30-day free trial!)
- Click Your Brand in the sidebar
- On the brand kit page you can set up color palettes and text styles, including uploading custom fonts, for quick access when creating templates
- Click the Create a Design button
- Select a document size or set custom dimensions
- Rename the design something useful like “Instagram Template” by clicking on the document title in the menu bar
- Add placeholders for content you’ll customize later, e.g. a frame or grid for photos and a header for title text, and set the fonts, colors, and other style.
- Add and edit any static content you want to appear on each image, e.g. a logo and your website URL
- When you finish designing your template click the Make Public toggle in the upper right and then enable Publish as a Template (I disable the Make public option, but it’ll work either way)
- Save changes
Walaaaa! Your template is now available for use…but where you ask? Back on the Your Brand page, there is a Templates tab where all your custom templates (and a few samples from Canva) are saved. Opening a template from here makes a new copy for you to customize, without changing the master copy itself. To edit the original template , click the drop-down arrow on the upper right of a template thumbnail and click – yep, you guessed it – Edit Template.
But hold on, there’s more!
Resizing a Canva Design for Additional Platforms
Once you create a template, you can use the Resize feature to create additional templates in other sizes with the same content to save hours of designing time. For example, if you make a Instagram graphic, click the Resize menu and select additional formats, e.g. Facebook and Twitter posts or Instagram stories, to duplicate the template in those dimensions. You’ll probably have to resize the small elements the layout of each template, but it saves you from having to start over. Make sure to save them as templates, like you did the first one.
For more information on using Canva templates, see their support page.
Canva is an online graphic design platform with hundreds of templates adequately sized for all social media graphics and printable files that you want to use. Even as an experienced graphic designer, I love how quick and easy it is to make professional graphics by just adding my own content into pre-made designs.
The Canva library is continually updated with a variety of new beautiful templates, but if you need images with a custom and consistent style, e.g. branded Pinterest or Instagram story graphics, you can use Canva to create your own reusable templates to sell. There are two ways you can make this happen – the free way and the easy way. Let me show you how so add and extra stream of passive income to your graphic design business this year. My course will take you from point A (learning the platform) to Z (selling your templates).
