About This Class

Interested on selling products on Society 6? Great! I'll show you how to format your artwork for storefront merchandise. 

Transcripts

1. Uploading Your First Image: Hey, guys was going on today. I'm going to talk about getting started on society six and making a storefront and starting to upload some artwork. Society six is a website that you upload your artwork and they can print it on different products such as clocks, mugs, pillowcases, travel mugs, computer cases. It's a really nice form of passive income, meaning that you do a limited amount of work. They take care of the production and you get a small cut of the price. What happens is you upload a design of your own original artwork and then design it to be set on these different products and society. Six will take care of the actual printing of the materials and the distribution. So since you are not involved in the primary production, the cut you get of the final cost is pretty small. Even though you take a small cut, I think it's worthwhile to have something that a design that you already have laying around that you can upload and you don't need any more involvement than just letting it sit and waiting for people toe klik around and purchase your products. So it's a nice way to make some money on the side. So let me show you how you can get started with uploading some of your artwork. Once you've created an account, you'll have a page where all of your artwork is displayed. It'll be divided up into T shirts, art prints, iPod cases, throw pillows, framed art prints, etcetera and, um, you'll upload a design, and you'll have to do multiple versions of the same design to suit the different shapes of the products that you're going to do. And they spell it out for you in the uploading process. So let me show you that you go to the top and click cell and you'll get a page like this. So you add a title and then you have your description down here with keywords, so things that people will search for if they're not looking for the title specifically, I'm going to be working with this some drawing that I have of Godzilla. So other tags I might use other than the name Godzilla might be monster kind, you dinosaur, etcetera. And then you have categories where if people are just browsing, these will be able to find your artwork so movies and TV. Since Godzilla is its own movie franchise, it's an illustration, and I don't think that they have a dinosaur category. So why don't we just go with animal? So then, once you do that, you will select your file, and I recommend that it's very high resolution. So even here it says that you wanted to be a J pic file, it could only be up to 75 megabytes and put it in RGB mode. Do not do it and see him like a They're going to take care of the printing. Don't be a hero. Just keep it in the original format. And it's already warning you that the art prints are not going to do full bleeds. They're gonna have a white border around it. So my suggestion is that you upload something in the highest quality that you possibly can . My document here, if we're in photo shop and we go to image size to check it out, you'll see that it's going to be 11 by 11 inches and it's at a resolution of 600. Um, 600 is a very good quality. You could go even higher. The file size might start getting too big, even upload to keep that in mind. But you're really not gonna want to go anywhere below 400 for this printing process. So what you'll want to do is click select file to start browsing your computer. And once the file is uploaded, if you scroll down, you'll see that you can start naming prices for the individual prints. They come in many small, medium, large and extra large sizes. It will give you the dimensions right here. The base price is what Society six is going toe need in order to make this product. So in order for you to make a profit, you are going to have to boost up the price more than the base price. You'll want to keep it so that you are making a profit, but don't make it so high as people are not interested. Um, these are totally, however you want to do it for these prints that I've done before. I already know a price point that I like to use. So if it's 12 boosted up to $15 I try to keep things pretty even. And, as you can see, it already calculates it, so I'm only gonna make $2.42 for the $15 price. If this is gonna cost, 15 will make this 1 20 So, as you see, the jump here is a little more significant. I'll be making $4.23 for these, and hopefully more people will want an 11 by 11 size anyway, So this is entirely optional up to you, whatever you want to do. But in order to make a profit, you're going to do it Over here. You can also do it the opposite way around where if you're like I would like to make exactly $4 for this, then type in $4 it'll calculated accordingly. So then click. Publish this and you're ready to go. 2. Phone Cases: Now what we just did on Lee accounted for the prince. And if you only want physical prints available to hang on a wall that you can skip this part entirely. But they offer different options where you can add, um, cases for phones, T shirts. But as you can see, they're giving you the specs that you need to know for your design. So what I like to do with multiple images is I like to do one full set of every kind of design, and then I just save that file for later and use it as a template. Does that make sense? So, for instance, starting with the mobile phone, um, in Photoshopped, I'm going to be opening up a template that I already have, where a designed a phone previously from another design. So I can open that up in photo shop here. So this is already the dimensions that they specified on their website. So 3.25 inches by five inches, Um, I've knocked it down to 400 instead of 600. I think it was just easier for uploading, but don't go any lower than that. So with those dimensions they say 1300 pixels by 2000 pixels. We're going to image size. It is measured in 1300 then 2000 pixels on. And then it translates down here into inches just so that you can see that. So what we can do is go one by one through the designs and then upload them as we go. So I have here the phone and I have my original file here, so I used photo shop see a six to do all of this. So if you have this program, you can follow along. If you go over here on the layers palette, make sure that images flattened. It's just easier to copy it over. Go to select all we've selected the whole image at it, a copy. Go over to the phone and it paste. And this image is a lot bigger than we have our phone right here. So I will zoom out a little bit for you and then if you hit control T or command T. If you're on a Mac, you will see the bounding box of how big this image actually is over top of the phone. And, um, if you go over to the corner and hold down shift and then hold down Ault or option on a Mac . You can start dragging in and it'll start shrinking it down. So let go drag it up. Want to make it smaller? Go to the corner, hold down, shift in all and go down and then to save the selection hit, enter. And what's nice about having a previous design is you can match up where it was before. So if I knock the transparency down here, I can start to see where the other design is, and I can overlap it. So control T to get the bounding box again. Shift option to start control t To get the bounding box again. Shift an option to start scaling it down. Let go click and drag had entered to save the selection and then bring up the opacity. If I go over here and click the move tool again, drug it or nudge it with my keyboard keys, um, the arrow keys and then that looks pretty centered so I can go ahead and select this background color with my eyedropper tool, which is I on the keyboard. Select that background color go back to this bottom Where Select select All Goto edit. Phil, make sure it's on foreground color, which is this color right here. The purple click. OK, it fills it in and then go over here. Click flatten image in the layers palette, and we have our phone and then file save as accordingly. So if we return to the society six page, we can hit select file and find that file that we just made and it will upload and give us a preview. So if I click on this, I can see where things are lining up on my design. I've noticed, especially with the phone cases. You have to be careful because it'll start bending around the shape of the phone. If you want it to be completely centered, you're gonna have to go back in the program and edit it. So if I look at this, I know that I need to shrink it down a little bit more so the tail isn't being bent on the side here. So if I go back to my design, I can, um so to get the selection select, select all and then control to you Well, downshift an option to scale it down a bit. Use their accuse to nudge enter to save the selection. Select D Select. But there's still some way around the border. I can get rid of that by selecting the magic wand tool clicking on the white going toe. Edit Phil foreground color and then select D Select. So we've shrunk the gods a little bit more. So it's time to try uploading this version. I would make sure that you save it as something different. Don't say that under the same name, because the website might just recognize it as the old file anyway. So save it as whatever your title is and then to we go back to society. Six. Click. Remove this artwork, click Select file. Select the second version of the file and it will begin uploading and it will give us our preview right here. And this will take a little more back and forth adjustment because it is still landing on the crease just a little bit. But I'll continue moving on for the sake of the tutorial. 3. T-Shirts: most of these designs will be the same kind of procedure other than the leggings and all over print shirts and T shirts. He'll just be making a new file. Follow their specs, dragon, your artwork, upload it, see if it fits adjusted and photo shop uploaded again as a different version. Go back and forth and make sure that it fits just right and you should be good to go. But when it comes to T shirts, this is something that I want to go over with you guys. So if you have something and you're going to want the color of the background just to be the color of the T shirt, you're gonna have to say that as a transparent image. And what I mean by that is, um, the only part of the artwork that is going to show up is be, uh, centerpiece, and you'll clip out the background and I can show you how to do that. So here I have a design isolated on a transparent background meeting that the checkers right here. This is totally clear. Nothing is going to be recognized. Only this part will print, and this part under here will be the T shirts. So if the T shirt was going to be purple, it would show up underneath. I hope that makes sense. So what we can do if we go back to our original image? Um, we can select with the magic one tool, the background and then select inverse, and then it's just selecting our object. This will be much more complicated if you have ah, difficult illustration that has a lot of patterns in the background and isn't one solid color to select that can just take a lot of manual selection all along the edge. Here, you're on your own with that one, guys, Sorry, but just for the sake of keeping it simple, So I have all of this selected Goto at it. Copy Return to this shirt document that I have from before, and then I will click at it pieced, and it's coming over top and you'll see that the purple background did not come with it because we only selected Godzilla year. So if we returned to the shirt and, like I did earlier, if you hit control T or command to you, if you're on a Mac, you get the bounding box Well done. Shift an option to scale it down. Let go click to drag and center it where you would like it. If it still looks a little too vehicle, downshift all and go to the top corner again. Start scaling it and I think that looks pretty good. So hit enter To save the selection, I can go ahead and delete these other layers and then this is the important part. Do not go over here and flatten. If you do it changes the background back toe white. Don't do that. Keep it transparent. It will recognize the transparency if it saved as a PNG file instead of a J pic files. If you go to file and then save as make sure in the drop down menu that you click PNG once you click save it will come up with these options. Just have these selected. I don't know what it means, but it's worked for me so far once it saves return to society. Six. Do what you did before. Click select file, find the file and upload it. So, as you can see in this preview here, it recognized that this was a transparency. So the only thing that's printing is Godzilla himself and not the color on the back. What makes this nice is that you can have all of these different options for a color for the background without having a big purple box that shows the edges of the artwork. From here, you're free to preview what the different colors look like. And you can uncheck whatever ones you might not wanna have available because they don't look very nice. For instance, I don't know if I'm really gonna like the way the red or the orange looks might be a little bit too harsh, but that's once again, up to your own discretion. 4. Pillows & Wallclocks: I think the next easiest products to cover would be the throw pillows and the clock's. Both of these are gonna be square documents. As you can see here, it asks for an image that is 3500 pixels by 3500. Same with the wall clock. You can return to photo shop and then make a new document under file new and make it these dimensions. I already have a template that is thes dimensions. Already. I'll show you in image image size. It is 3500 by 3500 pixels, and I'm keeping it at a resolution of 400 just like everything else. So you can make something those dimensions by going to file new and then filling out those dimensions accordingly. So once I have a template that is the right size, I can return back to my artwork that I'm gonna be using Go to select. Oh, it selects the image at it. Copy. Go over to your other document at it paste. It will bring in the image over top of it, and we'll go over here and we'll drag this so that we knocked down the opacity. So we can see where we place the other image. Do this if you're using a template. Otherwise, if you're doing it for the first time and it's blank underneath, you'll just eyeball it. Hit commands or control T on your keyboard. Control to you if you're on a PC Command T. If you're on a Mac, hold down shift all or hit option. If you are on a Mac and start dragging inward, let go drag, go over it shifts option to start scaling up again, and this looks like it's relatively centered over top of our existing image. And if you're doing something for the first time, I know that you're just eyeballing it. But once you have it set where you would like to hit, enter my recommendation. Either way is that you leave enough space around it so that, um, nothing of the important artwork is going to be touching the outside. This is easy for the design I'm using because it's just a purple background around it. I know that if you're using a full wraparound artwork, you'll just have to be aware that maybe this inch, um across or from the bottom for many direction, really you need to be aware that this is probably going to start folding into the pillow so you're not gonna want anything important on the crease. And what I mean by that is I wouldn't want God's. That was tale to start wrapping around the pillow. So try to keep things centered the way that you want. It's going to be like with the phones. It's a lot of trial and error of uploading, looking at the preview and then going back. So this will be the same document that will use for the pillows. You can create a separate one if you want, but either way, the documents are going to be the same size the clocks more. So I think you'll want to keep it in the center and smaller because you're gonna have if you can picture a circle so it's going to trim off these edges right here. So once again, nothing important in these four corners. Otherwise, that's going to be lost in the circle of the clock, so the website is giving us previews of the artwork. If I click on the pillow, I can see that nothing is getting lost in the coroner's or the wraparound of the pillow, so kept things pretty centered. I think that looks good. And like I said, it varies if you have full bleeding wraparound artwork and the Clark worked pretty well, too. You'll notice that anything that I kept in the corners would have been cut off here. So it's important that you keep everything in what you can visualize this a circle. It might be useful to just draw in a circle to help you visualize what things were going to be clipped off and then get rid of that layer right before you upload it. And that's all it takes to do throw pillows and wall clocks. 5. Rugs: when you're uploading rugs, you're gonna want to make sure that the longest side is no fewer than 10,000 pixels. And I know that sounds like a lot. This could be a pretty heavy duty image, so be prepared. And if we were starting to photo shop, you can see that the document is 10,000 pixels by 6667. So 10,000 up here for the whip, 6667 on the height. And you could manually make a document like this by going to file new and then putting in 10,000 pixels for your document. 6666 pixels for your height. 400 for the resolution RGB color. And you'll get the document that I'm working with here. But I'm just using a template, so it's easier to see. I'll go back to my other document once again go to select all to get the whole thing selected at it. Copy, Return to the other image at it paste. We're gonna want to see where we're going, go over here and knocked down the opacity so that we can see the original design once again . If you're just doing a document for the first time, you don't need to lower the transparency. Just eyeball where you think your design needs to go to be centered. We'll grab the move school, start moving here and it doesn't look like I'm going to have to shrink it down like I have with the other products because this is so big. So that looks good enough. Bring the opacity up. Go down here. Believe that layer. And then I can go grab the one tool, which is w on the keyboard. Click around it. I'm gonna want to fill in this backer in color with the rest of it so I can take my eyedropper tool, Which is I on the keyboard? Click there. Goto. Edit Phil. Make sure that it's set to foreground color, which is the purple right there. Click. OK, we're going to go select de Select. We have a rug made and, as always, you can look at a preview of the new product. The only downside with rugs. They're showing it from a view straight above, so you don't really get an idea of the three dimensions of the product. But here's open. Then it turns out okay, that's all you need to know about rugs 6. Mugs: the product that will talk about next is making mugs. I think this one is a little bit more difficult than the other designs. So far, it's not that the dimensions are asking for anything too complicated. It's the fact that the design doesn't quite wrap around the entire mug. And what I mean by that is there is a seam Right where the handle is will probably be like a one inch gap, maybe a little bit less of where the design will not fully wrap around. I think it's just part of the printing process. They're unable to do it, and they might have changed it since I've been using Society six. All I know is that when I received a mug, there was no printing underneath where the handle is. So in order to plan around that one thing that you can do is not have a colored background . It's a lot like what I was talking about with the T shirts where you could just choose not to have a background. I know this doesn't work as well with full bleed wraparound artwork, but if you just have a symbol that could be isolated, I would say skip the background. So if we go back to photo shop, weaken, do file new and manually put in those dimensions that we want. I have a template here once again that lines up to what they were asking for. Go to your original image to get this selection, go to select, select all it selected the image and it copy. Go back at it paste, and then we can start moving this around. If you want the full wraparound image, just keep in mind that it's probably not gonna print somewhere along these edges. So the option that I would prefer is to go back to the other document, select the background with the magic wand tool, go to select inverse. So we just have this and then copy and pasted over. I understand that it might not be easy to select around the images, just clicking the background. So if you go to your lasso tool, which is El on the keyboard, you might have to hold it down to make sure you get that one. I understand that you might have to manually click around that to start selecting your character, but either way, once you haven't selected Goto Edit copy. Return to your other document at it Pieced Command T or Controlled to you If you're on a PC will downshift and ALTs and start scaling inward Let go click and drag shift Ault, click hold down and then move it. Hit enter to say this election One thing that I've noticed is that you're gonna want to keep your design on either side of this long design. Nothing in the middle unless you want it to appear in the middle of the cup. What I mean by that is if we keep our design on the side, the edge imagine the handle is right here. So depending on how close you want it to the handle, you place it right there. Same right there. If you're picturing the handle on the opposite side, if I keep the design the way that I had it right here, where it's closer to the right, the design should appear right here where this little preview thumbnail is on the mug. So I returned to my Photoshopped document. I think that it's in place and I will click this background layer and delete it and I can keep it transparent. If I so choose, I think I'm gonna end up saving this as a J peg cause either way, it's just gonna be white. There aren't colors that you can choose from, like there are with the T shirt. If you do want a color, you're going to have to have it fill the whole thing. So what I could do is I could create a new layer, find a color that I want select, select all at it. Phil. Foreground color click. OK, and then all of that would be filled in. The only problem is that underneath where the handle is, it's probably just gonna be a spacing of white. So I would honestly prefer just to keep this blank so flattened my image. It'll save. It is white because it doesn't need to be transparent, and I'll save it as a J bag and uploaded his society six. And it's giving us our preview. It does actually look like it's a little bit to the left, so I could go back on photo shop and none of the document to the right to make it a little bit more centered closer to the handle. That's just what I would prefer. It gives us some other views. So I imagine that the handle is directly on the other side of this. And this is what we can see. Our design and on the opposite side, none of the designers showing at all. But if we had color underneath this strip right underneath, the handle would just be plain white anyway, so you might as well keep. It is a background free design, and that's how you make mugs. 7. Laptop Cases: All right, let's move on the laptop sleeves. Nothing new here. The documents gonna be 4600 pixels by 3000 pixels. Go in a photo shop, create a document that will be those dimensions. Go to original design. Select to select all. And it a copy. Go over to the template or the newly created document that it pieced. Bring down the transparency over here. Grab the move tool. Center it a little bit. Do control T or command to you. Drag it down. Well done. Shift. All click and bring down to the center to scale it down. Let go. Move it over. Shift all well down. Nothing tricky about this one. We're just gonna want it to be centered. Hit. Enter. Bring up the opacity. Select. Select. All will want this background to be the same color is the purple used the eyedropper tool. Click the purple. Make sure we're on the bottom Background layer at it, Phil. Four room color. Here we are, Flattened Image Select D Select and we have our laptop case. Return to society six upload. Click on the preview. Right now it's showing us what it would look like on a zip up case, but it also does plastic laptop skins. Same for iPads and iPad. Minis, that's all there is to it. 8. Wall Tapestries: Now let's talk wall tapestries. It's spelling it out for you like usual. 6500 by 5525 pixels. Go into photo shop and create a new document that is those dimensions 400 d. P. I go to original image and you know the drill. Select, Select all at it. Copy back to the document. At it. Paste control T shift. Oh, click to drag inward, Enter. To save the selection, you could move down the transparency. If you want to see more for your design will be Bring up the transparency again When you think you're done, select the color of the background. Go to select Oh, and it Phil click. OK, fills it in Flatten image Select D Select Save it and upload it to Society six. And here is our preview. That's all you need to know about making tapestries. 9. Travel Mugs: Society six has recently added travel Monks is an item that you can print on a swell. They have a template that you can download. I'll show you what it looks like right here so easy enough. It's just gonna be a rectangular image. These black areas, they're gonna be where the images cropped. So theoretically it might work with it. Full illustration like this. So at it, copy art goes here that it pieced command to you to start scaling down like I've done before. Zuma. Accordingly, if it never showed you how to zoom out. It's some Z on the keyboard, which I think you have tow. Apply the transformation. But I usually dio command plus sign or command minus sign or control if you're on a PC to zoom in a resume out. I just realized I haven't mentioned that yet. I think this is good as it's gonna get. Unfortunately, it would work better if I had a wider illustration. So disabled this layer. I'll upload it and I'll show you what it looks like. Okay, here's a preview. Do you really like that? I'm sure it looks better with different artwork. Follow the template and you guys will be fine 10. Full Illustration Formatting: Now I know what a lot of you are thinking, Lisa. You've only showed us how to do it. If there's a solid color background, what happens if we have a full illustration first stuff? You've made your life really difficult. Unfortunately, I'm just being honest. What it all boils down to is that you'll manually have to alter your illustration to the different templates. It's easier if you have a solid color background your way more flexible like that. It's honestly easiest if you have a solid color background. But let's say I have an illustration like this and I want to put it on a clock. So after flattening the image, if it was, ah, multiple layer PSD go to select all to select the whole thing at it. Copy, Go over to our Clark template, which is the right dimensions at it paste. Oh, boy, Command T or Control T. If you're on a PC shift, I don't start dragging to the center. Grab it, drag it over shift. Oh, shrink it down and you're starting to realize that this isn't going to totally fit. This is where you just have to mess around. Honestly, your only options are that you can crop part of it out, or you can make it look really bad, but it just dead, centering it somewhere. So if you have an illustration like this that's going to be bigger than the assigned dimensions of the template, make it a little bit bigger and highlight the part of the illustration that you're gonna want to see you. The problem with the clock is once again, it's gonna clip off the corners, and it's only going to be a circle. So right now, there's really no telling what part of it is gonna get clipped off. But I can safely assume that anything of the center will be safe. So if I just shrink it down till at least the edges air with the edges Now this edge of the illustrations lining up with their search of the document Drag it up. This is the stuff that I want in a clock. It's probably the best I could hope for. If I hit, enter, flatten the image and then save it as a J peg. I'll show you what it looks like when I upload it, and here we have it, folks, this is really the best that I can dio. You'll notice that things totally got clipped out. But who's the lucky guest to see what would be in the center Still in the clock. So if you have a fill astray shin like this, it's a game. You're gonna play with any of the designs. Some of the obvious ones air easier. If there in a rectangular format, it will be more true to the original illustration. Even if things were square, they should fit right in there. T shirts. You're in for a world of hurt. I'll just be honest. So if I have my Godzilla template for the T shirt that I have right here and I want to import this image select, select all at it. Copy? Go over here at it paste, scale it down like I normally dio and I think to myself. Yeah, you know what? Look, that fits pretty nicely, doesn't it? What's gonna happen when I upload This is a T shirt. I mean, I saved a dozen PNG. So what could go wrong? Oh, wait. It looks pretty bad. It can work for some T shirts. You know, when you have a full framed photograph, but this is honestly just gonna look like really crummy T shirt transfer, so I don't recommend this at all. If you're going to do a T shirt, make sure you isolate a portion of the image and don't do something with the border. It just looks bad. So you have the freedom to do what you want with the designs. Sometimes it'll work better with all over T shirts, but sometimes it's just gonna be more complicated. 11. All Over Print T-shirts: whole. Right, my friends, it's time to move on to the tough stuff. If we want to do all over print shirts and leggings, it's gonna be a little bit more complicated than the stuff we've already done. Feel free to just go with what you want in your society. Six store. You don't have to have leggings and all over print shirts available for every design that you do. But if you're interested, I can show you how to do it. Thankfully, Society six is nice enough to provide a Photoshopped document as a template so you can click there and download it. I have it open and photo shop right now. And as you can see, the red dotted line here is what is actually going to be our T shirt. But they have a thing called a bleed, where the design is gonna have to touch the edges of this gray just so that when they cut, they'll cut into the color instead of cut on the edge and have white spaces. Does that make sense? So I'm thinking, if I go over to my Godzilla design and all, select the one tool to select that purple I can get started. A word of warning. If you're going to do all over T shirts, I would recommend that you do an isolated image that is just going to cover a portion of the T shirt. Not like a full print thing. I don't even know if they do two sides. So if you're gonna do a full illustration on it, I really don't know how that's gonna look. Well, try this out first. So So select the background. Inverse anyway, that you can get this image isolated and it copy. Go over to this looks like according to the layout, it says the art goes there at it. Based art is there. Let's begin scaling. Get control to you to get the bounding box. Start scaling it around and it's just gonna be honestly, a lot of hidden miss kind of stuff. Remember that? It's mostly just gonna be where this red dotted Linus for the T shirt. So even this design truly doesn't look like it's working very well for a T shirt. This is probably as good as it's gonna get. I move it too far over. We're going to start losing them, so let's just roll with that. Um says that the gray is where the bleed is, and that's where all the edges of the artwork we're gonna need to touch. And I think that we just need to cut out where the extra is. So if we go up to where the template is quick, contiguous and then just click where the transparent is the checkered area, it is selecting some of the other portions of the layer. I guess we can go down here and it delete or backspace select. Do you select? Hide that layer. I think that's what we're looking for. Then it's asking for a J. Pegler, a PNG file. So go ahead and save it is such remember to turn off the guide layer. Otherwise it'll uploaded as well, and it looks like it generated our preview. Yeah, see, even that doesn't look all that great. It's really just going to be hit and miss folks, you're gonna have toe goof around and see what you can come up with. I'll go ahead and do it with a full bleed illustration. Between this and the leggings, I really think that it's more meant for repeat pattern designs and not so much full of illustrations like thes, But let's give it a shot anyway. So I have this document here. I will select it all at a copy. Go back to this template, click down there at it, pieced and control to you to start scaling around. So the problem is that they're gonna want me to touch the edges of this gray. Otherwise we're gonna have a border. So technically, if I just scaled it up as much as I could, maybe so that at least all the edges air touching, it's only gonna take this amount. They're so I mean, I can already tell this is going to be the disaster, because even now it's not touching the gray over there. I mean, technically, you can skew it out and start warping it, but I don't know how nice this is gonna look. But just for argument's sake, let's go ahead and give it a shot, little flatness, and we will turn off this layer. I don't even know that we need to clip this portion off. Turn off that layer. Save it is a J peg and we'll see what happens next. Oh, no. Here it is, folks, if you designed it around the idea that it was gonna be an all over print T shirt I bought this could be really cool. But if you're just taking artwork and stretching it up, you're probably going to get goofy results like this. So sorry I couldn't be more hope with that, folks. I go over the leggings, but honestly, it's gonna be the same thing. I can at least download the template and show it to you For what it's worth. Yeah, here's the legging template. Guys going to be even more complicated cause there's gonna be the waistband that's separate than the rest of it. My advice. Skip this, Otherwise fill it with a repeat pattern. Otherwise, you're gonna have to worry about where this seems air lining up. It just sounds like a lot of trouble. And honestly, I'm not the person to ask, but I'm glad that I could at least show you this. Yeah, good luck with that, guys. 12. Conclusion: So now that we've got everything all nice and uploaded, um, we can move on and get a preview of them. You're basically done at this point. So here is showing me the different prints that you can buy and for what price. And it is also available as T shirts, phone cases and everything else that you uploaded in the T shirt menu. People can preview it with, um, the different color backgrounds that you had available selected as different for the teas, uh, long sleeve T shirts. Otherwise, folks, you were basically done. You can link people the different things, and if they're interested in anything else that can always browse down here, they can return to your main page by clicking your name and seeing the other things that you have available that can browse it by what category of product that is. Or they can look at the different designs down at the bottom. Here's an example of what I did for a spread T shirt. Otherwise, the only other things that you need to know our, um, make sure that under your account you connect it to your pay pal or your bank somehow and If you go to under my account, it'll show you what items have already gone through that have been purchased and what things air pending. The other thing that you need to know is that there is this 30 day period where a customer can cancel their order. So you probably won't be seeing the money for at least two months, which is kind of the downside. So they have a whole month where they can choose to cancel the order. So you're waiting all that time, but then you have to wait one month after for it to clear. That's why this pending thing is happening. If we look right here, somebody got this on the first of the month. So 30 days from now they'll have confirmed their order. And then after that, I have to wait until the first of the new month to receive any of the payment. So it probably wouldn't be until January, anyway, if it had happened later in the month. So let's say if it happened today on the ninth, it would wait until the ninth of next month for it to go through. And then, even though it was the ninth of that month. You would have to wait until the beginning of February to see any of the money. So this isn't really something to be dependent on. It's a nice way to make money on the side from artwork that you already have laying around . I found some luck with it so far. We'll see where it takes me next. But let me know if you guys have any questions. Um, link me to your society six pages If you want me to check him out. Ah, yeah. Let me know what other websites that you guys use If you think that red bubble is a better website or big cartel, any of the other products. Um, if you guys use etc at all. I'm curious about that, too. I haven't really done any work there, so let me know what you guys think and have a great day
