Are you struggling with free or complicated design software in your Merch/POD business?
Do you want to stop shelling out money for designs?
Would you like some personal help?
You're in the right place to learn graphic design using Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator specifically for the purpose of Print on Demand (POD) including Merch by Amazon, Redbubble, Printful/Etsy, or any POD.
You know how frustrating it can be to wrangle unfamiliar software. All you want to do is get some designs uploaded and some money coming in!
Well, it's true that Photoshop and Illustrator can be intimidating. But we will turn them from big bullies into purring workhorses that make you money! (Hmm, those are some seriously mixed metaphors…)
I will teach you graphic design specifically as it applies to print on demand — super targeted training applicable to YOUR business — as opposed to general design courses or random videos.
No more frustration! No more feeling overwhelmed!
Designing will become the most enjoyable part of POD :)
