Patience my friend, not the wrong topic here, just a bad time of posting: very late night in Europe, and late Sunday evening in the US … :)

As far as I’m aware if you want to include images in your download you need to have commercial use licence. It is a limiting factor, but that’s just how it goes, I also spend huge amount of time finding commercial use images of good enough quality to include in my downloads as the price of an extended licence usually does not justify itself compared to the sales I will make on an item…

Cheers

Chris

Everybody gets rejections even the best. 4/5 seems a lot, but then it also seems a lot of submissions at the same time for me.

Everybody has their own work rhythm, but maybe that suggests that you work on to many items at the same time?

Personally I like to work on 2 projects. One I concentrate on and one that keeps brewery in the background. Once I have perfected the main one and submitted for revision I start working on the next hoping that I do not have to go back to the first one.

I have 5 portfolio items and I got 1 rejection. (Fully justified!)

Having sat that I think in the logo category you get more rejections than in others. That’s together with the buttons and Flyers Categories must be one of the hardest to submit to.

As you know will always happy to help if you’re wondering about a rejection over at the items forum ;)

Cheers

Did you take a look at the link I posted? Surely you must see the difference in quality! Not to sound harsh, but your file is an amateur product in all aspects. Choice of colours, styles, fonts, and execution simply isn’t there.

Apart from that it’s also very little value. Their only two button types. There doesn’t seem to be any thought invested in creating sets of buttons, themes, variations etc

So There is really only one suggestion: study, study, study! Look at the great selling files, look at tutorials over at PSDTuts and refine your skills.

Good luck!

I have to say this is nowhere near the quality expected here. Please take a look at some of the top sellers in this category and surely you will see that much improvement is needed before your item could be considered:

okay, that’s just the generic rejection message nothing specific in their.

To learn how to upload preview images just checked the first message in this forum:

Maybe you could post some screenshots of the items that were rejected and the rejection message if there was a specific one? That would help us see what it’s all about.

Yes, no gradients, just colour/no colour.

However I would be interested in general values also if there were not just one solid colour.

Hi all,

I would like to use a pixel grid background for my next brochure. in web design these are quite common these days, you see them all over the place. But I’m a bit unsure about how they come out in print.

I know that fine detail does not come out well or at all in print. So I would assume that a pixel grid with say one pixel wide lines would probably be to fine for your average print? It’s pretty fine on a high resolution monitor of ready…

What’s a good rule of thumb? Or what is a good resource where I could look this up?

Unfortunately my own printer is not good enough to provide a reliable reference…

Thanks any tips :)

Cheers

Chris

I like the wallpaper, but I have a feeling that it may simply not have been enough? If you look at the category you will see that people offer many variations and styles of the same theme in one item.

I don’t like the business card much. To be honest it looks a bit like patchwork. The icons and illustration don’t really seem to go with a business card and they don’t really seem to fit the themeof the background and layout. It looks a bit like different things thrown together and not one design out of the same mold.

Hope this helps

Cheers

Chris
