I’m noticing that the Pricing Tool does not always function properly.

Noticed this from day one.

It’s still acting up and not accepting the changes, it just goes to a blank screen.

Anyone else having this problem – in Chrome Browser?

If you send a ticket in to support, including the browser and any other information that could be useful, our devs can investigate further :)

I got all sorts of back and forth because a buyer purchased my PSD template and couldn’t edit them in Word.

Is this an item in the stationary category? It may be useful to make it really clear in the description that you need Photoshop to edit the file. :)

Hi Everyone, I thought you might be interested that you can now price your own Presentations as part of author driven pricing being added to Fonts, Presentations and Add-ons.

You can read about it here http://marketblog.envato.com/releases/author-driven-pricing-add-ons-and-presentations/

There’s also a sticky post about it on the GraphicRiver forums.

Envato Marketplaces have a policy for uploads that are variations on the same item.

The maximum number of variations on one item any author can upload is three. Variations are generally discouraged unless they cannot be accomplished by altering the file after purchase. Variations will only be accepted for sale if they offer a distinct new use to buyers.

You can make file packs of items that are similar. You can read about it at Envato Help :)

Hi n2n44

“with all the respect that i have for you, i have to say that this is very sad to see a member of envato, taking part in a thread which is somehow some way disparaging the whole of us”

Oh, sorry if you read my posts as something against the community. I wrote it with the viewpoint trying out new things. If your file has been approved and is for sale on the site, there’s definitely nothing wrong with it.

But if people are looking for ways to bring in different buyers or offer something different, its worth discussing what different clients are looking for :D

I just really love talking about design and helping people with design questions. No other intentions here ;)

I can imagine it’s hard to design without a client, but it’s also important to be true to your style. Creating a unique portfolio and finding your place on the marketplace is very rewarding. Everyone can learn to improve the way a file is used, even if the styles are completely different.

Perhaps you can experiment with putting the text on different layers so the item can be used for as much or as little information as the buyer needs? :)

Getting out and becoming familiar with the businesses is also a great idea. For example, I don’t go to the gym, but if I wanted to make a pamphlet for a gym, I’d like to make something that fits the clients needs. So, I would go to my local gym and take an existing pamphlet to see the information they need to include. The same is for business cards, but it’s a bit easier because we all know the information you need to put on a business card.

A business uses a flyer like a business card. Promoters will give them out to people they want to see at the club that night. They don’t have time to explain everything, so all the information needs to be on the flyer.

Another thing to think about is the person looking at the design.

  • What would you like to know if someone said “lets go to the yoga studio tonight”?
  • What would you like to know if someone said, “let’s go to the club tonight”?
  • What would you like to know if someone said, “it’s my birthday tomorrow and you’re invited”?

All of these are print templates, but the information people need is a bit different each time. Some need lots of information, some don’t need much more than a time and a location :)

when i look at a flyer i want to see
  • 1.who presents
  • 2.where
  • 3.drink specials
  • 4. whos the dj
  • 5.is it upscale or is it (hood)lol
  • 6.date (make that number 1)
  • 7.maybe the host
  • 8.maybe dress code ….those are some examples

Thank-you bigtrini76, this is really useful information. In communication design, the information is the first priority. A fancy flyer will draw people’s attention, but without all of the information the client won’t have a very good marketing tool 8-)

models not Included It’s also worth noting that the models are only included in the download if the author has a licence that allows them to include the photo in a stock item. 99% of the time the model is not included. This will be written in the item description.
