Mother’s Day March 27: POD Products for gifting

The first Mother’s Day event of 2022 is celebrated in: The United Kingdom, Ireland, Nigeria, Guernsey, Jersey, and The Isle of Man. The Day falls on the last Sunday of the Month of March, and Mother’s Day Print on Demand gifting in these nations is a huge deal. Some big POD players may even say that the sales potential for Mother’s Day is bigger and better than Christmas – so, with that said, let’s take a look at some of the popular products for this amazing POD sales opportunity and how to get design-inspired.

The Moteefe Mother’s Day cushion

Cushions take the number one spot for the POD gift item of 2022. They’re soft, durable and custom text-ready, and we all know a Mother who would love a gorgeous personalized cushion in their home. What’s more – Moteefe is now offering Cushion multipacks so you can offer your buyers the same design in packs of x2 or x3. A great way to maximize your profits with no extra work.

It’s worth noting that In the United Kingdom, Guernsey, The Isle of Man, and Ireland Brits use the ‘Mum’ spelling instead of the Americanized ‘Mom’. Our design team has created some gorgeous cushion designs for targeting in the United Kingdom and Ireland. The artwork is totally free to download, and we also supply the Photoshop file should you wish to change colours, or wording to fit your specific niche.

Top Tip: following testing, try selling your cushions cheaper at £16.99 or £17.99 (GDP) to your UK audience, as the lower pricing could bring you in a larger volume of sales if the design is a success.

Surcharging pricing update

Surcharging pricing update

Surcharging pricing update

Following the initial surcharge test applied to plus-size (2XL – 5XL) Men’s Tshirts and Unisex Sweaters, we’re happy to confirm we haven’t seen any impact on buyer conversion rates.

Therefore we’ll be continuing with the next phase of our test rollout, and appling the 2XL – 5XL surcharge across all clothing products on Moteefe.com

As before, we will be monitoring the imact of the test, and update acordingly.

We want to reiterate the point that SELLER PROFITS WILL REMAIN UNCHANGED, and that this test only impacts buyers purchasing plus-sized clothing.

Why are we making these changes?

Businesses have dealt with more change in the last two years than in the preceding two decades – and while that makes us more resilient, it also brings about new challenges.

The main challenge is how to remain competitive in the face of a rising cost of living. So here at Moteefe we’re trialling new ways of ensuring we remain competitive, while maintaining the same level of quality and service that you’ve come to expect from us.

In order for us to remain profitable – we need to offset rising print costs ($0.25 per print) and shipping (10 – 15% per shipment in USA and 5 – 10% in EU).

The ultimate POD Cushion Guide: Valentine’s Edition

2022 is looking to be a huge year for the sale of print on demand cushions. As the product offering in POD widens, people’s expectations for more imaginative and personal designs are on the rise. Imagine the possibilities…

Using the design template

We have created an artwork template to help you export your cushion artwork files quickly and easily. The template is set up at 300dpi so when you export your files you know they’ll be at the correct printing resolution. Save the Photoshop file template to your computer and keep using it every time you launch another cushion campaign. Let’s run through the process together…

Step 01

Moteefe has two cushion sizes available. Choose between the SQUARE or RECTANGLE Artwork template and open the Photoshop file on your computer. Check out the proportions of the cushions available on the Moteefe platform here on our blogpost

Step 02

Upon opening the Photoshop file, navigate to the HIDE ME folder in the layers tab and use the eye to turn off the visibility of this layer. You’ll need to also turn off the layer Your Artwork Here

Step 03

This is where the fun starts! Start designing within the boundaries of this canvas, or drag in your artwork to fit this print space. We’re using some cushion artwork to demonstrate below:

If you are placing a Png or a photo into this template file be sure to hold the option key whilst resizing within the canvas to maintain the original proportions of the image and avoid stretching. Try to maximise the use of the space so your print file will be as large as possible. You can adjust accordingly within the Moteefe builder when you upload the artwork to your campaign. 

Step 04

Once you’re happy with the design and the positioning of your artwork within the canvas, you are ready to export your png file for print. Go to File > Export > Export As…

Step 05

Now you’ll see the export window in which you can check the format (PNG) image size. and more details. Make sure Convert to sRGB is checked. You’re now ready to export your print file, so click the Blue Export button to save to your computer

Step 06

Great work! Now your print-ready png file is ready to upload into your campaign on the Moteefe platform and share with the world!
