PNG Files

There are a lot of stores selling individual sublimation PNG designs that t-shirt printing companies and businesses can use in their designs. If you are into digital art and have many designs with no background, it’s a perfect file to be sold on Etsy.

Best png files and designs to sell on Etsy:

  • Valentine’s Day
  • Easter
  • Christmas
  • Thanksgiving
  • St. Patrick’s Day

Every year people celebrate different holidays, and many t-shirt printing businesses want new designs to print before the upcoming holidays. So if you want to sell Valentine’s Day designs, you better start selling the designs 12 weeks before the actual holiday.

While some other designs can also sell well, holiday designs are one of the best ways to start.

Digital Artist

I’m a digital artist who is passionate about anime and manga art. My true artist journey pretty much started with CTRL+Z. When I experienced that and the limitless color choices and the number of tools I could use with art software, I was sold. Drawing digital anime art is the thing that makes me happy among eating cheeseburgers in between veggie meals.
