Exploring why Vexels is a great option for print-on-demand stores
To make money on Redbubble or other print on demand stores, there are many factors that you need to consider.
There are many, but here are a few off the top of my head:
How early you got onto the platform
The likelihood of you appearing for searched keywords
The uniqueness of your design
And we are going to dissect design a little more today...
For some of us, and I have no shame in saying, if we had to draw something by hand, maybe our mother's would be the only person who purchased it.
And if you are looking to make your first sale, maybe a little support from a parent is all you need to slowly build your confidence...
I believe, and I am not the princess of print on demand, but if you want to make money from designs, you should at least try to improve your artistic ability over time.
Take drawing courses and practice, because designs that come from your head and heart are what you want to aim for.
But, in the meantime, as you find your groove in the world of print on demand, you can get some help.
My thoughts on Vexels
A few weeks ago I was asked to share my opinion about Vexels...
The website looked cool but I was immediately put off by their TnCs- you have to pay to play. Also, Vexels is expensive. You can check out their website using my referral link by clicking here.
Then, the Vexels team reached out to me to review their platform, and I was honest with them that I am not in the business of creating infomercials...
I have used platforms in the past to create designs and I just felt that these types of platforms resulted in the same design on print on demand stores like Redbubble.
Guess what guys, I was wrong.
Vexels has a lot more room to customize your designs than the majority of the other platforms I have tried to use in the past.
Their features, for designing t-shirts for print-on-demand, include:
There are also templates worth exploring and you also have the option to upload your own artwork to edit too.
As much as I enjoy using Vexels, I still think there are a few elements that they should improve on:
I can't copy and paste a design when I finish editing the colors
I am unable to truly zoom in to see the finest details
However, for someone who doesn't quite have the gift of creating their own art, just yet- I feel that Vexels is a user-friendly platform that is perfect for a t-shirt design.
I like Vexels for print-on-demand because their design functionality is intuitive.
Their mock-up feature is new but really great for marketing designs if you are unable to afford to stage a full photoshoot at this time.
I would consider purchasing the life-time membership, but only if you can afford it. This will allow you to continue creating designs even in the quieter seasons.
Good luck with your print-on-demand store.
