When we started Designious in 2008 our library was created with graphic designers in mind. What their needs are and how to help them create better designs and faster without wasting time designing, again and again, the same elements.
The library quickly evolved and we started to create t-shirt designs, some complex, and some easier to understand, and many other resources. People liked what we did so we kept on going at it.
Why Stock Vectors or T-shirt Designs
Many of our visitors are wondering if they should use stock vectors or t-shirt designs? Why would they use a design that many people have used in their online t-shirt stores for example?
Mainly because if you are just starting out using stock vector art is the easiest way to create cool designs, no matter what that design is. Even the pro’s are using stock design elements in their creations.
Our library is not to be used exclusively, we suggest combining what you download from us with your own input or designs you download from other libraries like ours.
In the case of the t-shirt designs, even though you can use them as they are, we advise to use them as a starting point. Use them as templates that you can improve, change colors, change words, or bring in more elements that fit better. Use your imagination to make the design better. If you don’t know graphic design, we have a great selection of free courses to get you started.
If you have a niche, maybe you can download 50 designs from us, go get designs from somewhere else to complete your store, mix and match if you want.
The Quick and Easy
If you don’t want to install software our Online Product Designer is made for people that want an easy tool to create simple but beautiful designs. We provide you with around 20.000 design elements and over 900 free to use fonts to create your own designs.
You can create something unique in minutes with it, you just need a bit of inspiration. We also have hundreds of easy to edit templates and we are publishing more every week.
A research report says that the global custom t-shirt printing market size was valued at USD 3.4 billion in 2019, that’s not a small market, but indeed is pretty crowded. There are a lot of marketplaces and who knows how many individual shops are there, so what makes a successful shop is marketing.
There are hundreds of people who sell the same thing on Amazon.com, but some sell more and some sell less. Why? Because they have better copy, a better presentation, better marketing, and in the end they make their product more appealing to customers. A design or any product is as good as you make it to be.
Some of our users have made money with our freebies, which is crazy when you think about it.
Those designs were downloaded hundreds or maybe thousands of times, but some make it work for them. Usually, with any success story, there is a lot of work and sweat behind it and also multiple failures. There is no overnight success.
Don’t be discouraged if it doesn’t work the first time, learn from it, and make it better with the next try.
I want to leave you with a great quote from Pablo Picasso:
“Good artists copy, great artists steal.”
So please steal our designs and be a great artist.
