Your first digital product doesn’t have to be a massive course. This is exactly what bloggers and entrepreneurs think about when selling a digital product. There are so many other digital products you can sell.
Printables were the first digital product I started selling.
I was looking for a way to make money besides affiliate marketing. Someone in one of my Facebook groups mentioned they made 3 printable sales in 1 week. I decided to start selling them.
This was around 2 years ago. It took me a lot of trial and error to figure out what types of printables to sell on Etsy.
I’m at the point now where I’m making sales every week. Being able to create a printable to sell whenever I want gives me so much peace of mind.
To help you get started I’m sharing with you all the different types of printables you can create. 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 click here to get your free listings.
There are quite a few programs you can use to make printables. I know many sellers who use Powerpoint.
But in my opinion,Canvais the best option. I use it to make all of my printables. You can sign up 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.
Kid/Educational Printables to Sell on Etsy
There are so many kids or educational printables you can sell on Etsy. However, Etsy isn’t the only platform where you can sell educational printables.
Teachers pay teachers is another platform where you can sell them on. I know the ones that sell in this niche the most are Teachers or moms.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t if you aren’t either. Here’s a list of kids/educational printable ideas you can sell:
- Coloring pages
- Activity books or sheets
- Spelling worksheets
- Math worksheets
- Scissor practice sheets
- Counting sheets
- Chore charts
- Reward chart
- Reading log
- Handwriting worksheets
- Busy book printables
If you want more ideas just look at Teachers Pay Teachers to see what others are selling. You can make educational printables for teenagers too.

Wedding printables to sell on Etsy
There are so many printables in this niche that you can sell. The sky is the limit when it comes to the wedding industry.
Before covid hit, I started to sell them. But now I think is a good time for me to start selling them again.
- Wedding signs for tables
- Bridesmaid proposal cards
- Wedding sign for the entrance
- Printable labels for wedding favors
- Wedding invitations
- Bridal shower games
- Bachelorette party games
- Photo booth props
- Save the date cards
- Table numbers
- Wedding planner
Many Etsy shops only sell wedding printables. Some even sell only one type of wedding printable like invitations.
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
- Habit trackers
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 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

I think party printables are my favorite printables to make and sell. I love making party printables. I feel like I can really get creative with colors, fonts, and themes.
You are encouraged to be creative in this niche. Usually, when someone plans a party, they have a theme in mind.
Party planners are creative themselves and usually go all out. It’s kind of like you’re encouraged to do the same with the printable.
Here’s a list of party printable ideas:
- Birthday signs
- party games
- birthday invitations
- Greeting cards
- Scavenger hunts
- Gift tags
- Labels for party favors
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:
Adult Coloring Pages
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.
