When bloggers and entrepreneurs think about passive income, printables don't come to mind. They automatically think about courses, ebooks, affiliate marketing, etc. When in reality printables are a lot easier to make than a course or ebook.

Your first digital product doesn't have to be a massive course. You don't have to just sell physical products on Etsy. As a matter of fact, bloggers and entrepreneurs alike sell printables. Some sell them on their blog. Others on Etsy. You can do both!

It's a lot easier to sell a printable than it is to launch an ebook or course. I've been selling printables on Etsy for around 2 years now. I now have 100 sales in my shop. It wasn't easy to get there. It took a lot of trial and error. But I'm happy I never gave up. 

Now I'm sharing with you the best printables to sell on Etsy. I wish I had a list like this when I first started. It would've made things a lot easier. To make it even easier for you to get started you can get your first 40 Etsy listings free! Click here to get your free listings

How do I make printables to sell?

There are quite a few programs you can use to make printables. I know many sellers who use Powerpoint. But in my opinion, Canva is the best option. I use it to make all of my printables. You can signup for a free account. Plus you can try their pro plan for 30 days for free. 

Personally, I think Canva is a lot easier to use than Powerpoint or In Design. I started out on the Canva free plan. But now I use Canva Pro. With  Canva Pro I no longer have to use a bunch of tools. To sign up for a free Canva account click here. To try Canva Pro click here

Planner Printables

In my opinion, they aren't the same. Printable planners are different than planner printables. People who buy planner printables use a physical planner. They'll print out a planner insert to put in their planner. Here are some planner printables you can sell:

  • Happy planner stickers
  • Erin Condren planner stickers
  • A5 planner inserts
  • A6 planner inserts
  • Weekly planner inserts
  • Monthly planner inserts
  • Daily planner inserts
  • A4 planner inserts
  • Happy planner printable covers
  • Planner dashboards
  • Calendars
  • Habit trackers

Printable Planners 

Printable planners are usually printed out and put in a binder. The customer doesn't use a happy planner for example. Printable planners are usually centered around 1 topic. Here are some printable planners you can sell:

  • Travel Planner
  • Pregnancy planner
  • Student planner
  • Wedding planner
  • Meal planner
  • Finance planner
  • Christmas planner
  • Budget planner
  • Self-care planner
  • Standard printable planner
  • Productivity planner
  • Project planner

Printable journals

Printable journals are similar to printable planners in one way. They usually center around 1 topic. Many people think they're the same thing. They aren't. Planners help people to plan something. They are to help people get organized.

Journals help people to express their thoughts,  feelings, keep track, and write down their journey. Like a pregnancy journal. helps a woman to document her pregnancy journey. A gratitude journal helps someone to be more grateful and positive. 

Here are some printable journal ideas: 

  • Gratitude journal
  • Pregnancy journal
  • Gratitude journal for kids
  • Wellness journal
  • Bullet journal printables
  • Food journal
  • Reading journal
  • Weight loss journal
  • Prayer journal
  • Gardening journal

Party printables

I think party printables are my favorite printables to make and sell. I feel like it's one of the types of printables that allow you to get creative. I feel like I can really get creative with colors, fonts, and themes.

You are encouraged to be creative in this niche because customers who purchase usually have a theme in mind. Party planners are creative themselves and usually go all out. 

Here's a list of party printable ideas:

  • Banners
  • Birthday signs
  • party games
  • birthday invitations
  • Greeting cards
  • Scavenger hunts
  • Gift tags
  • Labels for party favors

Business printables

When I say business printables I mean ones that business owners would use.  It may not seem like they would. But if you target the right types of business you can definitely sell them. Here are some ideas:

  • Thank you cards for small business owners to put in their packages for customers.
  • Round stickers to put on their packaging
  • Checklist lead magnet templates to grow their email list
  • Cheatsheet lead magnet templates to grow their email list
  • Order forms
  • Business forms
  • Workbook templates to grow their email list

Other printables you can sell

Here are a few other popular printables to sell :

  • Wall art
  • Adult Coloring Pages
  • Stationary

Printable wall art is what I first started selling on Etsy. I eventually moved into other niches. Now I just upload new wall art for the holiday season. Printable wall art is a competitive niche. Make sure you find a sub-niche within it that's not too competitive.
