Digital downloads are a great way to get customers to your shop. They’re easy to create and you can market them on social media as well, including Pinterest.
If you have an Etsy account, you can download your digital purchases on your desktop computer or by using a mobile browser. If you don’t have an account, you can purchase instant downloads as a guest and download your files in the receipt email that Etsy sends to you after making a purchase.
If your digital file is a JPG, PNG or PDF and you need to print it, the process is similar to how you would print any other PDF. First, you’ll need to save the file as a PDF on your computer and then open it in a PDF reader of choice.
Choosing a Printing Service:
If you need to print a large amount of digital downloads, consider printing them at a local print shop. Many printing services, such as Vistaprint and Got Print, offer high-quality prints at a competitive price.
For smaller orders, you can also print from home. You can find printers at places like Staples, Office Depot or Walmart.
When you’re ready to start selling digital files, make sure you create high-quality files that are appropriate for your target audience. You can create them using sophisticated software like Adobe Illustrator or InDesign, or with simpler tools such as Canva or Microsoft Word. You should compress all your digital files in a zip file before sending them to customers. This will keep them all small and help you avoid getting stomped on by copyright laws.
