3 Ways to Make Unique Printables to Sell on Etsy: Integrated Patterns in Letters
One of my best-selling design techniques in my Etsy shop has got to be when I use integrated patterns in letters.
If you’ve ever seen printables on Etsy, you know that gold foil is still a popular design trend. However, so many Etsy sellers lack the skills and knowledge to be able to produce this look! If you’re able to make gold foil letters, or other integrated patterns in your Etsy designs? Then, I highly recommend you give it a try. It really helps your designs stand out and is so fun to design, if you ask me.
You might already know that my design tool of choice is Adobe Photoshop. I love all that abilities that Adobe Photoshop let’s me do for my printables that, quite frankly, isn’t possible with free online design tools like Canva.
3 Ways to Make Unique Printables to Sell on Etsy: Using the Watercolor Effect
Another great way to make your pritnables stand out on Etsy is to utilize the watercolor efect in your designs. I absolutely love using this design technique, and makes things so beautiful. I’m probably a little biased! Mainly because I like watercolor clipart for my printables more than the cartoony type of clipart. Can you relate?
Don’t have a specific clipart taste when it comes to your prtinables? You still might love using the watercolor effect. And your customers will love you even more!
Once again, this type of design technique is only possible when you use Adobe Photoshop.
Doing Your Own Thing In Your Etsy Printables Biz
Last, but not least, my ultimate suggestion when it comes to creating stand-out printables is to do your own thing. What do I mean by this? Well, let me explain.
For example, don’t copy other people’s work. Just because someone has a really well selling printable on Etsy, and just because it would be easy to copy it, doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. Not only do I believe heavily in Karma, but it’s just not a good idea to always be undercutting other people’s work. That’s only going to take you so far. Focus on getting better and building your own skills so you can make your own designs that stand out above your competition.
