Fun with Printful’s All Over Print

You can find some products here on Bolter Designs that uses all over print, but did you know that you too can have fun with printful’s all over print and design and sell your own collections?

Printful has a lot of fun products that you can create your own designs and products with. One of the options available is All Over Print. There are currently 71 products available for you to create your own collections of clothing and accessories.  These include leggings, beanies, shorts, tote bags, athletic wear and more. Bolter Designs has a few items which uses All Over Print.

No over production!

When you create an item that is All Over Print they are manufactured at the time of order. This makes it nice because you will not find an issue with over production.

All Over Print is printed onto special sublimation printing paper and is transferred onto your designs to fabric by using a heat press machine. After this  is printed on the material it is sewn together and your product is created and ready to ship out to your customer.

 

 

With all over print being available in 70+ items in 15 categories you can create your collections. You can have matching leggings, athletic tops, swim wear, athletic wear, shirts and accessories.

Create

When you create your own all over print products you can use your own designs by uploading your images. But keep in mind you should follow the size guidelines to ensure your item will print out the way that you are wanting it to. You can also use Printful’s design maker to create your products.

Within the design maker you can find video tutorials, options to upload your image, add text, use printful’s clip art and quick designs and premium images. There are also print file templates that are available for you to download and use to create your images for the products you are designing. When using these make sure you remove the layer with guides or they might show up on your product. Whoops that would be no fun. 🙂

Sample

Now that you have created your own products, you can order samples of that product so that you can see first hand how they turn out. Seeing and touching your product can help you when you are sharing, promoting and selling your products.

Share

Fun with Printful's All over PrintOne of the things that I love about  Printful is that when you create your own collections you can download mock photos which show your items on models. These can be used on your shop and you can also use them when sharing on social media about your products when you share the link to the item.  This image is an example of a  mock up photo, this photo is one for some of the leggings that I have created and is available on my shop. Escape Reality Leggings with Pockets.

 

 

Showcase

You can showcase your brand by adding your logo to products. The all over print products do not have any other branding on them. What is great about that is you are not sharing the spotlight with other brands.

Selling

One of the great benefits of selling your designs is that your products are manufactured by the printing company only when an order is placed. This is nice because you do not have to worry about any over production issues. There are fulfillment centers all over the world and each one goes through a 3 step quality control process to make sure your product is meeting their standards of a good product.

Check out this fun video on how to create all over print products.

Kiss Cut Sticker Sheet

Kiss Cut Sticker Sheet

These glossy stickers are designed just for you. Give your favorite items, like a notepad, laptop, or phone case an extra glow and personal touch. Stickers are ok for both indoor and outdoor use. I’d recommend indoor use for best longevity.

This product is made on demand. When you place your order it will be made and shipped to you by our production partner.

Kiss Cut Sticker Tips:

  1. Apply the sticker to a clean, dust-free, oil-free, and moisture-free surface.
  2. After application, press the sticker down with a clean cloth to maximize the sticker’s ability to stick to the surface and avoid air bubbles.
  3. Make sure that the sticker is applied correctly the first time. With every reapplication, the sticker’s ability to stick will decrease.
  4. Apply the sticker to a flat surface only. If applied on items that bend, are round, or in a cylinder form, we can’t guarantee its ability to hold.

Autism Acceptance

Autism Acceptance

As we are approaching April, which is Autism Awareness Month I wanted to share the catalog of T-Shirts I have for showing support and awareness to Autism. Autism awareness is a wonderful thing, but in my opinion Autism acceptance is much more important.

I am a mama to 2 girls on the Autism Spectrum. So awareness and acceptance is very important to me.

Autism is a lifelong developmental condition that affects a  person’s social skills, communication, relationships, and self-regulation. While you will see similarities Autism affects all differently.

When you’ve met one person with Autism, you’ve met ONE person with Autism.

I have 2 girls on the spectrum. While both have are similar in a couple of ways they are both affected by their Autism differently. My oldest is mainly affected socially and is non verbal. My youngest is affected mainly by social skills and behavior skills. Both stim to help them deal with the world around them when feeling stressed or overwhelmed.

Autism Acceptance

Somethings you may see in an individual with Autism is being non verbal, having difficulty with understanding social situations, difficulty in understanding and recognizing feelings of others and maintaining a conversation.  But do not mistake difficulty in understanding feelings of others and thinking they are not capable of empathy. A person with Autism is very capable of empathy, they just may not be able to express it in the same way that a neurotypical person can.

You can learn more about Autism at the Autism Society website.

Printful and Embroidery

Printful and Embroidery

Create custom products!

Are you a team captain, booster parent, PTA member, who might be looking for a way to make shirts, hoodies, hats or more for your group? Or are you creative and want to find a fun way to supplement your income? If you’re answer to either of these questions is “yes” then Printful just might be the solution to your needs. One of the many features you can find with Printful is embroidery.  With printful you can create products that you can sell or even just use for getting swag for your team.

Why embroidery?

Embroidery has been around for a long time. It is classy and looks awesome. with Printful and embroidery you can create your own classy, fun, and trendy products. Design your teams baseball caps and t shirts with your personal touch that shows who your team is and what they represent.

How it Works:

If you are asking “How can I do this?”,  here is your answer. You can create custom products that are embroidered by first creating your design. If you do not have graphic you’d like to use you have the option of using the quick designs, clip arts, and/or just using text. Once you are on Printful you follow these steps to create your product:

  1. Choose your product: your choices include hats, jackets, beanies and more. There are more than 130 products to choose from.
  2.  Add your design
  3. Submit your order – for the month of February the digitalization fee is waived.
  4. Set up your own store.

When creating your design for a product with embroidery keep it simple and minimalistic. Embroidery is not printing so if your design has  things  like shadows,  gradients, or textures your the embroidery will not work out right. It is best to use vector based designs for your embroidered products.

There is a one time fee for each digitized file. The fees are based on the type and placement that standard fee is $6.50 for most files. When ordering 25+ products in a single order the fee is waived. With that in mind if you are looking for baseball caps for your team, youth group, or any other group that you are associated with you can create the design for the cap and do a bulk purchase of 25 or more and that fee is waived. Cool right? Think about the backstage moms and the dads cheering in the stands, they love the swag to wear while bragging about their kiddos.

Printful does have a subscription service you can sign up for that waives the fees associated with embroidered products. You can learn more about that here.

Are you ready to create your own products? If so click this link.

The Basics:

If you’re all new to how to do this, printful has amazing support you find how how to do it. To learn the basics of creating embroidery files for example they have an easy to follow guide, which you can find here. To create your own products following the products guidelines is easy peasy. Each product gives you detailed guidelines for creating your design and each also has templates that you can download for use to guide you in creating the design. You have the option to order samples of your product after you have designed it.

What are some common mistakes? Common mistakes that can affect your product are using text that is too small, not legible, or having lines that are too thin. For text it is recommended that you use 0.25” in height and at least 0.05” thick. The minimum recommended line thickness is 0.05”.  For embroidery simple fonts like Arial, Helvetica, Myriad pro are recommended.

Theres a few stitch types, which are: flat embroidery, 3D puff, or partial 3D puff.

Flat Embroidery is most often associated with embroidery and it can be done both on hats and apparel. This one is great for fine details, but remember to keep your design simple. Keep in mind that there are limits which are that the  minimum thickness of shapes you can use for flat embroidery is 0.05″, and the maximum is 0.5″. This type of embroidery is also great for text. Keep in mind the requirements that text can be no smaller than 0.3″ tall for upper case letters and 0.25″ The design maker tool in Printful will warn you if your design is too big or too small.

Stay minimalistic

As mentioned before it’s best to stay minimalistic. When you do that your design will look its best. Avoiding lines and text that are too small will keep your design legible. Minimalistic designs can be striking and look awesome. For example you can have a basic design with minimal details and it can look great. Look at the image in this post for an example of how a minimalistic design can look on a product.

Another thing to keep in mind is the thread count. Printful has 15 color options, but there is a limit of using 6 colors per design. When using multiple colors make sure you keep in mind that the design is big enough so that when it’s sewn how you want it to look.

How can I create my designs?

There are many options for you to create you designs. You could use programs like Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, or Corel Photoshop Pro to name a few. Have a tight budget? If so check out this free vector based software that you could use as well called Inkspace. You can also the option of using the tools in Printful’s Design Maker.

Keep in mind that for embroidery you cannot use photographic imagery like photos. Designs need to be vector based.
