Thanks.
Whats yours?

I wouldn’t post the link here because if lots of people click on it and don’t buy anything that will have a negative impact.

If I’m being honest I would say the designs and the mock-ups could be better, not that I think mine are great either! I hate mine. But also maybe people just want to buy a physical print? I would say to search on CreativeMarket for some better designs. You can search for lots of things like nursery clipart, for example here’s some watercolour safari animals, and if you look at the pictures it gives you an idea of what kind of poster you can make with them..


I’d look for some better frame mock-ups as well. I prefer to use the same mock-up so that everything in my shop has the same branding instead of lots of different mock-ups, but each to their own :)

Also the titles of your listings could be better. For example your set of 3 nursery prints is this at the moment...


Baby Room Decor. Nursery prints. You are my sunshine set of 3 Instant downloadable digital prints.​


And somebody else’s that is higher up in the search results is...


Set of 3, Nursery Decor, Rainbow Nursery Prints, Nursery Print, Sunshine Print, Nursery Prints, Boho Nursery Prints, Kids Prints​


So your title has to be things that people will search for really, separated by a comma. And what about your tags on the listings? You have to make sure they are what people will search for too. I’m not sure if you pay to advertise, but if I’m being brutally honest I would say to start again with your designs first and then advertise them, you don’t need to have tons of listings, I only have 6. I hope it works out for you.

Thanks. I haver struggled with finding mock ups and as it's still early on, I've not really wanted to pay for them to not pay much anyway.

I see what you mean about the titles though and I will change them. With the designs, I have tried to do stuff similar to what I have seen. Thanks for the link. I will definitely take a look. What printer would you recommend? I have a Epson EcoTank which is economically wonderful but It has recently been leaving lines across my printing hence why I haven't been offering physical prints until I can afford to buy another. Plus I am not sure what to get.

Have you looked at the Etsy Pattern?

I have an Epson EcoTank too, what kind of lines? I haven’t looked at Etsy Pattern yet but I will :) Some mock-ups are quite cheap.

They are vertical lines, mostly just one, across whatever I print. I have done a print head clean and whatever but they're still there very pale which effects the quality so much. Great printer otherwise. Only had to buy Ink once since I had it 3/4 years ago. I use Canva, so I am looking at the file on that link to see if the are compatible

Is it the paper you’re using though or the printer do you think?

I did think that but it does it regardless. I have printed on card, paper and photo paper and it still does it. I'll attach a picture.59710185-12e5-4de4-b15c-c42f71ae660b.JPG

Ah, I don’t know about that sorry. I don’t think these Epson printers can handle card though from what I’ve been told lately :cry: I was hoping to use card instead of photo paper.

I completely agree. I use a lightweight card and one sheet at a time but anything thick and it has a hissy-fit! I think the print heads are buggered.
