Do have a creative, artsy side? Maybe you are a teacher who has created a multitude of printables for your students. Making printables is not only fun but can be a lucrative way of earning a side income. Here’s how you can make money online selling printables!
How to Make Money Online Selling Printables
If you want to fine tune your skill before selling printables online, I suggest taking an online printable making course.
Sell to Bloggers
Bloggers are constantly looking for content to add to their blogs. We want people to come to our blog and be able to access everything they need. Printables are great ways of driving people to blogs, and bloggers love to buy them. Here are some places to sell your printables on Facebook:
Open Your Own Shop
An option is always to open your own shop to sell your printables. The fees will be less, and you have more control. You can easily add on a store to your existing website or start a new one. It does require a bit more advertising than other sites listed. Social Media will be your best friend on this one. You can check out an example of my store on The Frugal Navy Wife.
Open a Shop on Etsy
Etsy isn’t just for jewelry and crafts. In fact, many bloggers, teachers, and creative families go to Etsy to find great printables. You can make printables for education, printables for decoration, and just about anything you can think of. When you sell on Etsy, you have your own shop. Here’s how to get started:
- Head to Etsy and click on “Sell on Etsy” in the top right-hand
- Click “Open your Etsy Shop.”
- Fill in your information to register
- Confirm you email
- Name Your shop
- Stock Your Shop
It really is that easy to sell on Etsy!
Sell on E-Junkie
E-Junkie is a great site where you can sell almost anything, and this is ideal for digital products. You can set it all up on their site, and they offer an affiliate program so you can provide an affiliate payment to other who help promote your product. They handle all the payments and then pay you.
The sites below are more geared toward homeschoolers. If you are creating printables for kids, organizers, to do lists, then consider the sites below to sell on.
Seller on Fiverr
While not necessarily the best place to sell a product, on Fiverr you can sell your service and create printables other people need. You can offer many upgrades as well to get the price above $5!
Sell on Teachers Pay Teachers
If you are a teacher looking to sell printable worksheets, coloring sheets, or educational activities, Teachers Pay Teachers is a great place to sell. You must become a member to sell on Teachers Pay Teachers, but the membership is free.
- Head over to Teachers Pay Teachers and click “Join us” in the upper right-hand
- Choose the seller upgrade membership.
- Enter your information.
- Click “Add New Product” on the right-hand side.
- Start adding your resources. There is no limit.
Make a Shop Teachers Notebook
The Teachers Notebook is a website created by teachers for teachers. It is a combination of Etsy and Teachers pay Teachers. You sell educational printables in a shop that you set up. Click on “Open a Shop” and follow the prompts to upload your printables. If you open a free shop, you get 75% of your royalties, but if you open a premium store, you get 85% royalties.
Sell on Currclick
Not only can you sell your printables on Currclick, but you can offer live classes, self-paced classes, and digital downloads. The great thing about Currlick is that it reaches so many homeschool families, and offers them a way of getting resources at a reasonable price. You can sell your printables to multiple people over and over again. You have two options when you sell on Currclick:
- Download Exclusive: You earn 70% royalty, but you are promising that you will only sell that printable or curriculum on Currclick and nowhere else.
- Download non-exclusive: You get 55% royalty, but you can choose to sell your content on any other platform.
Educents is the daily deal site for homeschoolers. They also have a section where you can set up a shop and seller your printables and even ebooks geared toward homeschool families.
Do you have printables you would like to sell? Making a shop or selling to individual people is a great way to have a little nest egg! If you have printables you have made just sitting around, start selling!
Here are a few of my favorite places to get clip art for my printables. Always make sure to read the usage rights to make sure you can sell the printables and what kind of credit you need to give to do so.
