Learn how to create Printables to use, share, or sell with Affinity Designer!
Do you ever get an idea in your head but can't find that awesome idea in real life?
It happens ALL THE TIME, right?
From home decor to the clothes you wear ... you search and search but are lucky if you come close to your vision.
I've got GOOD NEWS!
When it comes to Printables ... you CAN make your ideas come to life!
A few years ago, I wanted to create a printable that said, 'you've been egged' ... but I wanted EGGED to be all drippy like egg dripping, you know? The programs I had tried couldn't make my vision a reality.
Soooo ... I went on a search.
That search landed me at a super cool app called Affinity Designer!
... and I've never looked back.
Sweet drips, right?
This Printables Course is developed around Affinity Designer. You NEED Affinity Designer if you want to take this course and learn how to create the printables dancing around in your head!
I've got EVEN BETTER NEWS!
Affinity Designer is NOT subscription based. NOPE! You pay once and all the goodness is yours!
I paid four years ago and haven't paid a dime since. AND it's quite reasonable. So far, updates have been free. (In full disclosure, I was told when they get to 2.0 there will be a charge to upgrade.)
Here's the deal: you can try Affinity Designer FREE for 10 days! Just be sure to get right on it because the 10-day-trial starts as soon as you download the app. (That isn't even an affiliate link. Affinity Designer doesn't use affiliates. Could that be why they're the best kept secret?)
Warning: It's easy to get overwhelmed when you look into new programs. THAT'S what I'm here for ... to take the overwhelm away so you don't have to miss out on cool stuff, like making drippy letters!
Now, if I could find the outfit I've been dreaming of ...

Graphics and printables are my weak spot. I have so many ideas but don't know where to start. I've used another another Serif product in the past with ease, so felt good trying Affinity. After taking this course, I feel fully prepared and confident that I'll be able to handle my own printable needs in the future.

The Printables Playbook has changed the printables game for my blog. The instructions are easy to follow and walked me through creating a printable with Affinity Designer from drawing out my design and setting up my page, to saving as a pdf and how to deliver to my readers - plus all the fun, fancy stuff in between. I love having the ability to create my own reusable assets and being able to combine text and shapes to create word art that can't be done in Canva and Word. It's super easy to align boxes, change colors, and create my own clip art - which means I don't have to worry about copyrights when selling my printables. The templates that come with the course gave me a good foundation to create my first printable. Now I've created my own templates and printable creating is quicker and easier than ever. I highly recommend The Printables Playbook for learning to create gorgeous printables with Affinity Designer.
