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!

Serious quality issues with the shadow effects!

It is best to create a shadow then layer them to increase the effect, rather than push the brightness.

I push or max out the brightness when checking for mistakes with my flyers, as hidden mistakes show up on a white background, that are virtually invisible.

The rest of the design seems ok to me, thought!

Thank you tmcom!

Not sure, I don’t think it’s allowed, try to read all Terms an Conditions you should find an answer there.

Well, your future site, in case you need any help you can contact me to discuss about it.

Good day, or night! :)

No probs, iWanto….., .

No l had my doubts about linking to a sales page, but no harm in asking.

And thanks for the site building help, but l have a few years ex, so eventhough a pure HTML site like yours is probably beyond me, l can do a close second!

Yep, nice site, l had to scrow down to see where the string leads, he, he!

I wonder if Envato allows a link to my site with rejected flyers for sale????

Well, my future site, still just an idea at the moment!

Again your pretty sure it’s not the design itself that caused your item to be rejected ;)

Remember – when there’s a problem with your assets, fonts, files, when just one of your rectangles is smaller at the end etc. you will be soft-rejected with instructions on how to improve it. Otherwise your design is too weak.

Last time I told you about typography, now you just copied that bad composition from the bottom onto new flyer and did nothing with it. Then there’s title placement. I realise that you may want to follow a new path in design, but here you probably had to put your title above to reveal background photo and now it just doesn’t look good.

About photo – I’m not sure this will work. If you want to use single photo as background, either try to find something extraordinary or use simple photo with no elements/figures/animals on it. Let it be jst background and then compose the rest of flyer itself.

For now it looks kinda unfinished. No flares, no glares, no nothing. Just copied bottom and a bit of effects on main title. You need to try harder ;)

No, l did do a flyer with the bottom text, and it was accepted, so l don’t believe the bottom text is an issue. And l have made changes with the color.

But as you are saying the overall design is too weak!

I just wanted to see if a background image along would be enough, or a minimized design, likely it is not, so l will need to try harder and rely on cleaning more elements than cutting and pasting an image across.

Although l couldn’t find a uneven background for text, so next time l will make sure the background is spot on with the text, or perfectly frames it.
