About This Class

4b59557f

In this class, you’ll learn how to turn your original artwork into digital products to sell on Etsy, using the example of a greeting card. This class is great for illustrators, designers, painters, and freelancers who want to branch out and make passive income on Etsy, without the work of printing, packaging, and shipping.

We’ll talk about the pros and cons of using Etsy compared to other online selling platforms and then dive into prepping your art to be sold online as an instant download on Etsy.

Once we’ve covered the “why”, I’ll walk you through:

  • Tips for selecting or designing art to sell
  • Scanning and editing - for analogue artwork
  • Creating reusable greeting card templates with Photoshop, InDesign, or Illustrator that will be easy for your customers to download and print
  • Listing (and selling) your first digital product on Etsy
  • Navigating customer relationships

At the end of the class I’ll go through some other product ideas you can sell in addition to greeting cards. Don’t forget to checkout the class resources for other class recommendations and checklists to help you get started!
