How to create POD designs about your hobbies
Experts recommend Print on Demand sellers to focus on a specific target when creating their designs. If you have a hobby, this is excellent news for you! You can use your knowledge and expertise in developing products about that hobby and selling them to other fans.
Focusing on your hobby has many benefits. First of all: you’ll know better than anyone what do fans like or need. Runners can design for runners, and crafters can design for crafters. Also: as a member of a community, you’ll know where and how to promote your products. Creating a line of products inspired by your passion can be useful for your personal brand, and it will look great on your CV.
Print on Demand allows you to create and sell products with your designs at low risk, so it’s worth trying! In this post, we’ll give you some ideas that you can use to create your designs. You can find these and more design assets in our growing POD category. All the items on that category include a license for Full POD use so that you won’t struggle with copyright issues.
We’ve used Printify’s mockup generator to create the images in this article. Take a look at these ideas and get inspired to create your own.
Download quotes about your hobby
A set of quotes is always an excellent resource for Print on Demand creators. It provides different designs with a common theme and aesthetic. It’s convenient! Find yourself a good quote bundle, and you won’t have to worry about combining fonts and illustrations—no need to come up with smart quotes. We’ve got you covered!
In the image above, you can see a design from the Workout Bundle. This pack, created by Vunira, features ten fantastic lettering quotes for gym and fitness lovers. Take a look at the whole set. If sports are your passion, you’ll for sure get inspired.
Create your own quotes with a fancy font
If you prefer to write your quotes, don’t worry. There’s a way for you to make your thoughts and message look fancy! Pick a font from our library, download it, and use it to write your words. All the fonts at Creative Fabrica include a license for full POD purposes. You’ll only need to find the one that you like the most.
For the design on the image above, we’ve picked the When Plants font. It’s also been designed by the talented Vunira, like the previous bundle set. This script font is fancy, sweet, and versatile. You can use it to give a handwritten touch to your POD catalog. If you are a plant lover, this one is a must for you.
Pick a pattern that suits your hobby
Seamless patterns are a fantastic choice for all-over designs. If you download a vectorial pattern, you can adjust its size to the dimensions of any object. The graphics won’t lose quality! Patterns are great decorative items, and they add a lot of dynamism to products like the phone case you can see on the image.
For this phone case, we’ve picked a background from the Waffle Ice Cream digital paper pack. The author of these designs is the talented Party Pixelz. Baking lovers can use these designs to customize their Print on Demand products. The final result will be sweet!
Use illustrations about your hobbies
If you prefer to create figurative designs to honor your hobbies, you can use some illustrations. Other members of the same community will likely enjoy the drawings of your choice. The right clip art assets can help you get the perfect vibe for your designs.
For the cushion on the image from above, we have used the illustrations from the Beach Collection Sublimation Graphic. These designs were created by Edywiyonopp. You can use them all together or separately. Surf lovers will adore your designs when they see them. If you are curious about how these designs would look in other Print on Demand products, download the full set and give them a try.
