Many artists and designers I know create beautiful works of art in their free time, but then let the files sit on their computer to collect digital dust. Why not dig up your best poster designs and turn them into sweet canvas prints that you could photograph for your portfolio site or even sell in an online store! Showing your designs printed and photographed in a cool way on your online portfolio can really make your work look extra spectacular. It shows potential clients you have experience printing, and that you are proud enough of your work to take the extra time to print and photograph it.
If you start building a name for yourself online you can even set up a store and sell limited edition prints of your work that are signed, which increases the value so you can print less, but make more per print and who doesn’t need extra money! All you need to do is go to UPrinting.com for Canvas Printing, where you can easily upload your poster designs and print them at custom sizes, at crazy affordable prices.
Then you can use an online store system such as BigCartel, which is super easy to set up to sell your poster prints online. You can accept payments securely via PayPal and then when a print is ordered, all you have to do is ship it! It truly couldn’t be an easier way to make some extra bucks online! Below are some sick poster designs that should def be canvas prints and if they are yours, what are you waiting for!
