You want to start with free options and one way I have made printables is on Powerpoint it really is one of the easiest ways to make them especially if you are like me and not very arty.

What do I mean by that well – set up your printables to sell on your own website again Printables by numbers also gives you the lowdown on how to do this as well using either Thrivecart or Sendowl as a stand alone option or adding woocommerce to your WordPress site.

The advantageous to this is that you don’t have to compete with a load of other store fronts like for example Etsy.

If you really don’t want to go into having your own website the places like Etsy and Shopify are the major league places.

How much money can you make selling Printables

Well if you treat it like a business you could make lots of money check this out this podcast to get an idea of what you could achieve. Tam makes $6+ per month just selling printables but she had a great idea.

Bear in mind that the idea of what to sell needs to be good and different to everyone else to really do well.
