There’s no need to be Michelangelo to get into POD! Below are a collection of websites and services for purchasing graphics to use in your print-on-demand store.
While I do earn affiliate income if you use one of my links (great way to support the site and my YouTube), I will never recommend a service, just because they are paying me. I only recommend services I use or have used.
You should not use the graphics you get from these sites as is, please see my blog post on why.
My most used site. They have a ton of graphics and fonts all with a POD licence. The subscription is amazing value!
Huge selection of vector graphics and they have a favourable licence for POD. While they do offer a lot of vectors for free, the free licence does not allow commercial use.
Similar to the previous two, except Elements includes things like stock photo and video, music and more. Make sure you understand the licence before using them for your business.
Vexels was made for POD businesses, they offer a great selection of graphics and depending on the subscription plan, you can even get bespoke design made.
Full of amazing graphics, fonts and other resources. However you are required to purchase every item separately, which can get costly.
Amazing resource, especially if you're just getting started and are wanting your thumbnails to stand out.
Great alternative to Placeit, thousands of mockups and there’s even a free plan.
Offers a huge collection of high quality product mockups, however they can be a little pricey.
Etsy!? I hear you scream. Yes there are sellers on Etsy who sell product mockups. There can be great if you want “authentic” looking mockups.
The industry standard. If you want the best and most flexible tools for your POD business, then I highly recommend investing in Adobe Creative Cloud.
A very easy to use, online design tool. Great for making shirt designs and promo material.
Both Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo are great alternatives to the more expensive, subscription based software by Adobe. Currently Mac only.
This is an iPad app but it’s very affordable, and a good option if you prefer to draw your designs.
