Printing Digital Downloads

Adding digital downloads to your Etsy shop is an excellent way to sell unique and custom products. You can upload patterns, photos, or text files to your listings and have customers purchase the file when they make a purchase on your shop.

How to Print a Digital Art Print

You can print a digital art print from your home printer or from an online printing service like Staples, Vistaprint, Got Print, or Zazzle. These services offer high-quality prints at reasonable prices and some even offer delivery.

How to Access Your Printables after Purchase

When you buy an item on Etsy, you will receive an email with a link to download the file. This link can be found in your email inbox or under ‘Purchases’ on your profile page.

If you can’t find the file after buying, you can open it by going back to your listing on Etsy and finding the listing that has that file. You can then click on that file and it will open up in your browser. You can also download it again to take it and print it or provide it to your customer via email for them to print.

Create Lifestyle Mockups for Your Digital Downloads

If your digital downloads don’t have physical product pictures, you’ll need to provide images that show your printables’ features. Using lifestyle mockups and good-quality excerpts of your printables inside contextual pictures is a great way to display the print’s main attributes while preventing illegal copying.
