The ultimate POD Cushion Guide: Valentine’s Edition

The ultimate POD Cushion Guide: Valentine’s Edition

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!

The Facebook Ads Translation Guide: reach a whole new audience

Translate your successful campaigns into another language, and you’ll reach a lucrative, untapped audience.  It’s a very effective way to scale up, and surprisingly enough, it requires very little added effort.

Not many people are able to speak multiple languages fluently, and finding a reliable and accurate translation can be difficult.  That’s why Moteefe has created a guide to help the community out.  The new Facebook Ads Translation Guide contains commonly used phrases for marketing a campaign.  It’s been designed to help you reach European markets and send your sales sky-high!

Facebook Ads Translation Guide: the details

Our guide provides sellers with translations in 13 different languages: English, German, French, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, Finnish, Polish and Czech.

It covers common phrases targeted towards your audience regarding ads, campaigns and retargeting.  Some of the phrases available include:

  • PLEASE USE THE SIZE GUIDELINES TO CHECK YOUR SIZE BEFORE ORDERING!

  • For bigger sizes, select the S to 5XL option.

  • Click the GREEN BUTTON to select your size and style

Putting the Facebook Ads Translation Guide to use

After downloading the PDF file, use the steps below to help you translate the phrases. 

Select your language

Select the required language by clicking on the flag of the country that speaks the language you are seeking.  Alternatively, you can scroll through the guide.

Copy the text

Select text and Copy:

Windows: CTRL + C 

Mac: CMD + C

Paste the text

Paste into your campaign:

The benefits of translating your campaign

Facebook Ads Translation Guide: three examples of T-shirts with German messaging

Ultimately, by offering your products in another language, you will be opening the door to a new demographic.  As a result, a new audience is available to purchase your products.  With an increased pool of targeted customers, this move can greatly increase the number of sales you make.

The potential for selling Print on Demand in European markets is huge.  A lot of sellers focus their marketing towards the USA and overlook Europe.  This means that there is a lot less competition in the European Print on Demand market. You can see this reflected in the cost of advertising.  Your budget will go much further in Europe, letting you run more ads and reach more people.

Translating your successful campaigns will put you on the road to building your very own, global Print on Demand business.

The Moteefe Ugly Christmas Sweatshirt Design Tutorial

The Moteefe Ugly Christmas Sweatshirt Design Tutorial

The Moteefe Ugly Christmas Sweatshirt Design Tutorial

Step 1

Firstly, Download and install the font file named ‘xmas_sweater_stitch.otf’ from here.

Step 2

Now you’ll need to download the Photoshop file and double click to open. Note: the bottom layer should replicate the Sweatshirt colour. This is to help you visualize how the design will look on the sweatshirt 

Step 3

You’ll see the layer labeled ‘Your Text‘ which is the area you will want to change. Select the Type Tool or Press the T to enable you to type

Top Tip: Depending on the length of the word, you might want to change the size of the ornaments on either side to accommodate the spacing. Press Command T and drag from one corner of the object with the direct selection tool tool to maintain the correct proportions of the shape when adjusting.

Step 5

Now you’ve changed the text, you can add your niche image! You can commission artwork via websites such as Fiverr of if you’d like the Moteefe Design department to take care of this for you, please send an email to sellersupport@moteefe.com describing your design brief including as much detail as possible.

Step 6

You’ve added your artwork and got it at the right size and positioning, now you’ll want to remove the stitches that interfere with the artwork, just how real knitted sweater would work. There are several ways to do this but for a less ‘permanent’ way of removing the unwanted stitches, let’s use the Mask tool. Select the layer ‘stick pattern’ and click mask. Now press B to activate the brush tool. Simply brush away the unwanted stitches

Top Tip: The mask tool enables you to ‘mask’ elements that you don’t want to appear. It’s a non destructive way of working as you’ll be able to undo your working or remove the mask all together. Whilst on the masked layer, use the brush tool with the colour Black #000000 selected and the colour White #ffffff to edit

Step 7

Looking great! Once you’re happy with how it looks, click save and we are now ready to export the png that will be ready to upload straight into the Moteefe builder. Don’t forget to turn off the bottom layer that we’ve labelled as ‘Sweater Colour’ as we only want to send transparent Png’s to print. 

Go to File > Export > Export as…

Step 8

Now the Export as dialogue box will appear where you’ll need to make sure a PNG will be exported with the Transparency option checked. (This is default when you select PNG) It’s the only image format that supports transparency, and that’s what our printing machines like to work with! 

Now click export and there you have it, your very own Ugly Christmas Sweatshirt design now ready to upload straight into the Moteefe builder. Great job!

How to create a White Label store with a custom domain

How to create a White Label store with a custom domain

How to create a White Label store with a custom domain

Here at Moteefe you have the option to create your very own While Label store. This means you can use your own domain name and customize the store with your very own header and logo. They are easy to set up and come with a range of exclusive features and products only available to White Label store owners. Showcasing your Print on Demand products in this way will help legitimize your business and speak directly to your buyers. Sounds good? let’s take a look at how to set it up for your store…

The White Label Store

“White label” refers to a fully supported product or service that is made by one company but sold by another. 

White label stores give brands and individuals the power to sell their Print on Demand products using the Moteefe fulfillment infrastructure, but with a fully customizable front end. This process not only looks great for the buyer but allows sellers such as yourself to develop your brand and take full ownership of the storefront. Moteefe allows you to update product visibility on your White Label Store by categorizing your products into collections. You can add and remove or update products from your store at any time. 

Connecting a custom Domain

Although the Moteefe store provides sellers with a standard Moteefe store domain link, purchasing your own personal domain gives you true ownership of your brand and boosts your credibility in the eyes of the buyer. It indicates that the seller has taken additional steps towards building their business and reflects a more professional approach. Having your own website gives legitimacy to your business and purchasing a domain can cost as little as a couple of dollars a year! It’s definitely worth the investment. A custom domain name is:

Better for your buyers
A simple domain is much easier to remember than a domain containing suffixes from a hosting site. It is easier for you and your customers to type in http://www.moteefepets.com as opposed to; http://www.moteefepets.mymoteefe.com

Better for SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
Including keywords in your domain name can help with search engine optimization (SEO). Keywords are crucial for business because they help drive traffic to your products. The more relevant your name, the higher you rank according to Google. The higher your Google ranking, the more traffic (as potential buyers) you will gain on your website

Connecting your domain to your Moteefe storefront: The Step-by-Step guide

Step 1

Purchase your domain on a domain name registrar.
These sites vary from country to country so we recommend that you Google one to see which registrar offers the best rates.  Some popular choices are Domain.com, GoDaddy or BlueHost.

Step 2

Log into your Moteefe account and go to your Dashboard. Then click on the Stores tab

Step 3

Hover over the store that you want to attach the domain.  Now, click on the Domains symbol.

Step 4

A form will appear.  Fill out the form with the information of your purchased domain. Insert your Moteefe store name. Now, insert your custom domain name. Click Save & Continue.

Step 5

Log in to the domain registrar e.g GoDaddy and select your new domain for configuration. 

Step 6

look for the DNS Management section. Now you will need to change the Nameservers. Click Change

Step 7

Enter the new nameserver details in the boxes shown below. You can find them on the Moteefe Dashboard. These details have also been sent to you via Email. Be sure to click Save

All done! Please note it can take up to 48 hours to activate your new domain.
