If you want to use Redbubble to sell your artwork on various products, it is necessary to set your shop correctly.
This action will increase the first impression of your artist shop, show your audience who you are, and introduce your creative style.
Redbubble is a great platform where artists all over the world can sell their artworks on products such as t-shirts, stickers, posters, pillows, and much more.
Redbubble is a simplified way of selling art. You just upload your design, Redbubble handles everything else and you get the profit margin from your artwork.
If this sounds like a great deal, even though there are a lot of disadvantages when selling on Redbubble, you should definitely set your store.
How to Add Avatar on Redbubble
Let’s start on how to add an avatar to your profile.
After you sign in to your account, click on your account icon at the top right corner. From the drop-down menu, click on Account Settings.
You should see a page, where you can add your avatar, your cover image and update your profile information.
By adding an avatar you can easily inject a little more personality or brand awareness into your profile and help people recognize you across the Redbubble platform.
For your avatar, use a headshot or your brand logo. To add your avatar, click on Choose file button. Then find the image you want to use on your hard disk and once you select the image, click the Upload button.
Once your upload is complete, you will be taken into your shop where you can see your new Redbubble avatar.
How to Add Cover Image on Redbubble
Adding an avatar is just a first step to setting your shop on Redbubble.
In the next step, you should change the cover image which is a great opportunity to make a lasting first impression, and show visitors your individual creative style.
So, go ahead and click on your avatar, and then click on Account Settings.
You will be back on the same page, where you have changed the avatar. Now, under the avatar section, scroll down and you will see a section that says Cover image.
This is a place where you can upload a banner to your Redbubble shop. But before you do it, it is recommended to upload an image that is 2400 pixels wide by 600 pixels high in PNG or JPG file format.
If you don’t already have a cover image, you can easily create one in Canva, which is a free design tool that is insanely easy to use and is one of my favorite places to create designs.
So, let’s assume, you have already created a banner, then just click on Choose file, find and select the image on your disk and click on the Upload button.
How to Add Your Bio on Redbubble
Now, when you have added your Redbubble avatar and cover image, it is time to add your bio which will be displayed in your shop.
The best practice is to write a short description of yourself or your brand. Describe who you are and which design style you are using.
Once you are done, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the Save Changes button.
Let’s take a look at your shop, now when you have a new avatar, cover image, and bio.
Here Are Some of My Favorite Tools For Print-on-demand
Thank you for reading this article. I hope you found it helpful as you build your own print-on-demand business. Here are some tools I use as a designer that I hope you will also find helpful.
Designs: For getting started, I really like Creative Fabrica. They have millions of cheap graphics that can elevate your t-shirt design. If you are not the most skillful designer, then try Placeit or Vexels. These are platforms, where you can find thousands of pre-made t-shirt designs you can easily edit and publish on any print-on-demand platform. I recommend Placeit for beginners and after you get some sales move to Vexels.
Free Designs: I love Canva. I’m using this platform almost every day. With Canva, you can create stunning t-shirt designs, they already have an entire section, where you can make your artwork from scratch or use some pre-made templates and edit them. Canva comes with two main pricing plans: FREE and PRO. And if you are a beginner, then I recommend the free plan, it should be enough for you.
If you need a fast graphic tool for creating stunning designs, you should try Stencil. This is the web’s favorite online graphic design tool. It is an insanely fast and easy-to-use graphic tool similar to Canva.
