Have you ever wondered — “How do I make my own printables?“
The truth is, it is really EASY to make your own printable designs!
In fact, not only can you easily create printables with your laptop/computer, you can also make money by selling printables right from the comfort of your own home!
Personally, I have been selling printables online since 2018.
I have sold thousands of different printables to users all over the world.
What I love most about creating and selling printables online is that it allows me to make money while working from home and still taking care of three young children!
I also love that I can generate a stream of passive income because one printable creation can be sold for months, and even, years!
This is especially true for evergreen printables, for example, undated planner printables and printable activities for children.
So if you were to ask me, “Can you make money selling printables?“, my answer is a resounding “YES!”
How can I make my own printables for free?
