Very good tool. It makes narrowing down searches much easier and fast. It’s amazing – one of the best tools added.
If you want to know details as to why your item was rejected, you can submit a support ticket. They will take the time to write and give you the reasons.
It’s not really their responsibility to point out very single thing that is wrong with your file. It’s your responsibility as a designer to learn and apply the rules of design to your item and also update the quality of the item. You have to develope an eye for fixing a rejected file. All rejected files can be fixed with a bit more work. You can ask fellow designers to help you on this forum or within your local designer friends.
If envato was to take the time to point out everything that is wrong in a rejected file for each author – approval times would increase instead of decrease. I figure, from experience with my rejected files, that rejected files have more than 3 thing wrong with it.
I understand that it is sometimes hard to figure out why the item is rejected but, if you bring the skills you have learned on envato and in school (college or home training) – and help from a friend or two – you will be able to fix a rejected file without input from envato staff.
Remove facebook, twiiter and google names – don’t associate them with your icons
This is what I would do: - remove invites you to (too wordy) - move club name to bottom - Make Apocalypse Large (Title) - Put Zombie Nite below it (sub title) - move date off title – incorporate it in the bottom layout or on the side of the hand – in a proper format - instead of centered layout do something different with the layout at bottom - remove social icon letters and names – use other icons (no social icons allowed now on GR) maybe try some original icons made by you with some photoshop or illustrator shapes - make icons you use white or one color (the blues and orange does not match the color scheme of the flyer – also make them smaller – hierarchy is important – icons should not be so big - maybe put a little grunge on smaller text also to match with title text
Quality on graphics looks good to me – your text layout and colors is what needs fixing – what your hierarchy – important info should be larger than less important info or colored in a way to dray more attention.
Hope that help Best of luck with the finished work
If you continue to upload great items, market them on at least 7-10 social networks plus your own website, find a niche section to create file for (look around for what’s needed on the shop – not necessarily what is popular)
Upload about 2-4 files per week with a 98 – 100% approval rate, always look for ways to learn new technique and styles (learn as you go)
With all that you can make $2,000 and above per month in a short period of time

Lucky (relevant) items, Quality and Unique item, quantity of items, social marketing, great tags, great title names – these are some of the things that I think work.
Lucky items work because they are relevant to what people are searching for. So if we design them – they will come looking and buying. Sometimes we get a lucky item unintentionally. We should take note of these items and also listen to our buyers that contact us for certain items.
Quality and unique items work because there are thousands of artist here and even though our items are different – there are similarities in layout, color schemes etc. Buyers are looking for something they have never seen before or that’s just hard to ignore – this is the response they want from there target audience. eg someone looking for a resume template, will look for one that has some creative curve to it that will attract the potential employer’s attention.
Quantity of items – this works if you are always following the relevancy and quality rule look at it like this. Where would you buy more? at a marketplace with 2 items (say a website software site with 2 items) or EnvatoMarket (with thousands of website software). You would buy more from the envato market. You want your portfolio to be the envatomarket. Keep uploading great quality and relevant items constantly.
Tags – Very very important – tags as we should know affect how people will find you both on the marketplace and on search engines like Google. They give us 30 tags to use so use all of they – if you put 29 tags, you are are cheating yourself from a possible click through. Your tags should correlate with your item, title and description. So quality and relevant tags and title names are important. If you are selling flyer templates – your title should have flyer and template in it and your tags should have flyer and template.
Social Marketing – very important because, it get people visiting your item and the more visits you have to that item is the more potential for sale. Also it’s good for SEO. Someone with only 10 link backs to their item may get a lower search position than someone that has 1,000 link back. There needs to be a lot of visits to your item each month to result in 100’s of sales on that item. Not everyone will buy.
