This feature is another game changer. When you start building up several files in your Silhouette library, sometimes you want to get a glimpse of a file or recall who the original designer was. You can now double click on the small thumbnail and it expands to a pop out screen with all the pertinent info and details. What a timesaver. With a slider button, you can expand or decrease the thumbnails in this preview panel. Enhancing visibility when you have multiple files to look through is another huge enhancement. This feature gets a 5 star rating.
About TheSwagElephant: I started The Swag Elephant as I was planning my best friend’s bachelorette party. We were going to Las Vegas and I was super inspired by “the Hangover” and wanted to create some sort of fun accessory for the bachelorette party attendees. I decided to create gold foil temporary tattoos that say “bride tribe” and “wolf pack” and they came out great! They stayed on in the pool and the ladies loved them, especially the bride.
I have a story for you and it is not about how I suddenly woke up, decided I wanted to make a bunch of money on Etsy selling printables and became an overnight success. This is a story of how I sloowwwwlllllyyyyyy came to the realization that success on Etsy as a "Printables girl" was POSSIBLE for me. Once I got to THAT point, then yes, things took off from there. But, let's start at the beginning...
So the moral of the story is that success takes time and it's all in your head. In my first 18 months on Etsy, I made less than $1000. In my second 18 months on Etsy, I made $30,000. What changed? I did. Now, looking back over this whole experience, I've taken inventory of the mindset shifts, the skills, the resources, and the knowledge that has helped me get to this point and I've created an online, self-paced course called Passive Income with Printables. It contains everything I would have LOVED to know when I started.
There is an overwhelming amount of items you can download on this website so it might be a good idea if you have an idea of what you are looking for so you can type it in the search button. I typed in Christmas for my most recent search. There are a ton of botanicals if you want to do a gallery wall of botanicals too…I know that is popular right now)
Use Adobe Acrobat Pro (this is a part of Adobe’s Creative Cloud Subscription). Find “tools” on the top menu. Select “Forms”, then “Edit”, and “Add New Fields”. This will allow you to create editable fields for your customers built right into your digital products. Note: you cannot copy and paste your fields throughout the document to add more than one editable filed. Instead, select “Create Multiple Copies” to speed up the process. You will also be able to give fields multiple lines and make them rich text enabled so customers can change the size and fonts of the text.
