I get new ideas all the time. Thoughts for products that I think would be really cool to see. But I’m not an artist or some technical designer and I can’t paint, or draw to save my life.
This is where the internet comes in.
The advantage of the internet being the norm of our world means that data can now flourish more than ever. Information is not only extremely widespread, but also free. If I want to learn something, there are so many tutorials out there in written and visual form for me to dissect.
This new freedom also applies to creating. A few days ago, when I got an idea for a t-shirt, all I had to do was head onto google and search for a way to get that done.
The two most popular services that social media was talking about were Teespring, and Redbubble. Their services allowed me to not only express my creativity easily, but have a platform to display it on.
They market, produce, and fulfill all orders for your product. All you have to do is make the design. You don’t even have to deal with fielding thousands of questions from customers because they even handle customer service issues for you.
So, like me, you may not be some design expert. You may be thinking, hey, I’m still at square one. Well this is where the beauty of creative internet services comes in once again.
Canva is a graphic design service that lets you create social media images, designs, and other creative content. They not only have a website, but an app as well. You can use their services to convert all of those waiting ideas into new designs.
One of the best things about Canva is that they have a plethora of templates ready so you don’t have to go about researching dimensions for all of your social media marketing.
So, Step 1, come up with a unique idea.
Step 2, design it on Canva. A lot of us want to kick our designs up a level to stand out from the crowd. If that may be, you can get Canva Pro. One of the biggest reasons I would recommend this is for the ability to make your design a transparent PNG. If you’re making a t-shirt, chances are you’re gonna want your design to be a PNG file so that your background is transparent.
Step 4, market your new product to the world.
The barriers to creating are as low as ever. So use your valuable time to express yourself with the free services available to you.
