Print on Demand Resources
Even though the majority of the Print on Demand platforms out there have gone to great lengths to make their interfaces as user-friendly as possible & have done everything in their power to ensure that the process of uploading your designs etc. is quick, easy and convenient, it’s pretty much inevitabe that at some point you’ll find yourself scratching your head and thinking ‘Ummm… OK, I’m stuck — how the heck am I supposed to do this?’
As well, each specific site invariably has it’s own set of procedures, rules and requirements in place, so something that might work fine on, say, RedBubble may turn out to be a completely different ball of wax on TeePublic or Zazzle…
Image formats, image dimensions, tags, yaddah yaddah… Sometimes it can all be a little bit overwhelming, can’t it? Luckily, there’s this thing called ‘Google’ where you can usually find the answers you’re looking for — if you’re running into problems, chances are somebody out there has run into the same issues and has posted the solution somewhere.
In any event, here’s a short list of informative and indispensable Print on Demand resources & articles that have answered a lot of our questions, generally making life quite a bit easier for us in getting our PoD stores up-and-running…
