Yep, hierarchy issues with the text may be the main reason?

HI, just wondering about the time frame, or process?

Does everyone here who has achieved 1000 sales or more, had months where they couldn’t figure out how to do a certain flyer design, or has the process been easier?

Like one or two failures, and a few successes, to keep you motivated?

And do you get faster over time?

I am guessing that over time, that the more l do, the bigger initial sales l will see, because l am building a fan base?

Appreciate some feedback! :-)

Thank you very much for your response! Understood – I guess that I have to learn to submit correctly, the process quite differs from other sites I upload to. One more question – when you upload simple JPG images with some text on the preview image, should you include the name of the text font in the help text file or description? And does the help text file need to include information about tools used in Photoshop when creating a file (even if psd file is not in the pack)? Thank you!

If the text is for previewing the image then no, but if it is part of the actual product, (zipped file) then you need to put in the link for it in the description and in the help PDF, notepad, etc in the zipped file.

As for the tools, hard to say? But if you have used Smart Objects then yes!

Best to give them a crash course and then tell them to Google for the rest. Not necessary to rewrite Photoshop for Dummies!

Yep, maybe remove the green, make the top text more obvious, (couldn’t read it).

And the Fecebook icon needs to go, l got in trouble for using a Youtube icon in one of mine.

Using similar text to facebook is risky as well, best to study mine and make something like “Your Twitter” etc.

Good luck!

The large grey text is simply acting as a watermark for posting here on the forum, and is not actually part of the image. They are vectors and part of a series of animals I am doing- My pink kitty got a soft rejection; all that was wrong with it was a couple of open paths I had missed. This one had no open paths and I thought it stood the same kind of chance as the kitty, even more so being Easter is coming up. It just through me off as it was rejected without any explanation as to why or no suggestions as to how to improve it, But I suppose they just didn’t like it. Anywho, thank you very much for the reply and encouraging words :)

No prob,.

Could be too many similar designs, or similar designs are available for free, (doesn’t matter if you did it from scratch)?

Best to take it on the chin and keep going, you will eventually find a niche that they want, and then milk it for all it is worth! He, he!

Rabbits look great, but it could be the resolution, although if they vector based, then ignore the last comment!

I would also get rid of the large gray text, since it fights the images.

Go take a break, but don’t get to disheartened by the failures, l failed about 8 times before l got a few flyers in, and they have made me almost $40!

Then took some risks, with the next couple and got them binned as well.

I am currently doing some Apple products, since they sell well, but are pretty labor intensive.

But at least l won’t be guessing as to what elements l got wrong in the flyers, so they should pass on visual rep,.

I also hopefully know why the flyers got canned, and can get some more through one day soon.

Graphicriver might be a goldmine, but you might start the mine, fail for months on end, learn how to spot gold streams in clay more easily and succeed more, then have some more failure, before realizing that your extraction process could be made more efficient, etc.

Just keep going, and one day you will look back and think, wow, look at what l have achieved.

Um, no idea… if you’re a creative designer you should be able to come up with answers to these questions, I guess.

Hmmm, ok! 8-)

Just as long as your next one, has substantial differences from the previous canned ones!

Too risky to clean and resubmit a canned one.

If my flyer gets hit, l will at least change the background and other elements, so Envato can see it is a new product!

Hi, all, pretty stocked to get a blown paw, but l also don’t want to be soft rejected if l can help it, so….

just wondering what is the best way to show different product compositions?

Should l put some together and include the background with that group, or should l just match all the products and forget about putting the background into every composition group?

So computer with pad and 3 backgrounds.

Or…

computer, pad, and no background for that group with the background options at the end of the 10 different product compositions?

Yeah, shadows are unrealistic as tmcom has said, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. There’s huge typography and composition problem, almost nothing is properly designed here. Icons and texts are not aligned with their boxes, the boxes are not equal itself on the second image. QR code is placed randomly with uneven distances from box’s border. Icons are incosistent, you shouldn’t use very thin and bold icons next to each other, they just don’t match.

You have long way ahead, keep learning and practicing, you’ll have your business card accepted sooner or later :)

Yep, and by brightness, l mean bring up a white background, then go to brightness/Contrast, and make the brightness as dark as it will go.

That will show up all the errors that might be present in your work, and a word of warning, don’t use the Custom warp tool, it leaves errors!

Best to do it by hand!

It can be time intensive to set the eraser to 1% and pick away at a gradiant that cannot be done by clicking a few buttons, but you do end up with a professional result!
