I’ve been having some success with both Etsy and Redbubble lately. I’ve started to design files for use with die-cutting machines and posting them to Etsy. I’ve made a few sales! I’ve been selling the files for $.99 each. I figure it’s a good place to start and I can increase the cost as my talent and knowledge grows.
I’ve acquired a Cricut Explore Air 2 for my birthday. That is going to exponentially increase my knowledge of how to design files properly. Also, it means I can choose to sell stickers, decals, and other finished goods. One of the main reasons I never got into such items was because I had no way to trim them nicely. My only options were square or circular Avery stickers that are already pre-cut. However, I never liked how much room for error there was. They simply don’t produce a product that feels professional, or commercial. So, that brings me back to the Cricut. I can make non-standard stickers and have them all cut smoothly and professionally. I’m very excited and can’t wait until I have a free night to set it up and start using it.
That’s all for now!
Take it easy and remember to smile!
