How To Use Canva And Printify On Etsy

Selling on Etsy has steadily gained popularity as a means of generating income through selling one-of-a-kind and imaginative merchandise. If you wish to elevate your Etsy store, Canva and Printify are two essential resources to consider. In this article, we will demonstrate how you can leverage these platforms to enhance your Etsy shop.

What are Canva and Printify?

Canva is a graphic design platform that allows users to create social media graphics, presentations, posters, and other visual content. It has an easy-to-use interface and provides access to over a million fonts, photos, graphics, and templates.

On the other hand, Printify is a free print-on-demand (POD) platform that lets you create and sell custom products online. You create your designs and choose the products you want to sell, and Printify handles the printing and shipping to your customers.

  1. Sign up for a Canva account. You can do this by visiting
  2. Once you’ve signed up and logged in, click on ‘Create a design’ and select ‘Custom dimensions’. Most Etsy listings use an image size of 2000 x 1500 pixels.
  3. Now, you can start designing. You can add text, images, shapes, and other elements. Canva also has a large library of templates, which can be a good starting point if you’re new to design.
  4. When your design is complete, click ‘Download’ to save it to your computer.
  5. You can then upload this image to your Etsy listing.
