Create Digital Products to sell
These beautiful cards are just a tiny selection of the type of digital craft you can create using software you probably already have at home, graphics from extremely talented artists and a few additional hand-made fonts. You do not need to know photoshop or any other complicated graphics software, you do not need any specialist equipment. All these cards can be produced at home on your laptop or computer and a home printer.
I will show you step by step how to create these cards for any occasion, how to personalise your cards to make them your own, plus how to create posters, Tote bags, T-Shirts, Mugs, phone cases and cushions.
I will walk you through the exact steps I use in my own business and tell you how to make bought images your own without infringing any copyright issues.
I will explain the different licencing agreements related to the graphics and fonts you buy; exactly what they mean and how you can use purchased images for your own designs and copyright them in your own name.
I will share where to buy envelopes for pennies, inexpensive frames and cellophane bags for your cards and pictures.
