How To Design Print on Demand Products With No Design Skills
Updated: Mar 2
Designing and selling your own print on demand products can be a lot of fun and also quite profitable. You don't need special design skills to be able to sell your own POD products. Of course, you're at an advantage if you have great design skills or Photoshop and other editing skills.
You can simply upload your own photos, drawings, artwork and sell them on the products you choose. Make sure your photos are at a decent resolution (high resolution is recommended) because you don't want blurry products.
If you have no photos you want to use, go ahead and find free royalty-free images you are allowed to use. Go ahead and create your own designs by modifying and creating graphics from public domain graphics websites.
* BEFORE DOWNLOADING AND USING ANY IMAGE CHECK LICENSING* NOT ALL WEBSITES HAVE THE SAME LICENSING AND EACH IMAGE SHOULD BE VERIFIED!
Public Domain Images, Photos, Vectors and Graphics
These 3 sites are easy to navigate but check out my list of 10 Royalty Free Image Websites for more options.
I like to browse these free photos sites, then choose photos I like and I start putting them on products on Zazzle and Redbubble.
Once you have your graphics, there are 2 easy to use programs for editing.
1. https://www.canva.com/ - sign up for a free account
2. https://pixlr.com/x/ - free image editing
Once you have your design, select the print on demand website of your choice.
My recommendation is Zazzle because it's easy to use.
