Step 2

Upload your work

To be able to sell your work online you will need to upload it to Creative Hub and set the size and prices for each piece. It is important you upload the highest quality version of your work you have available, and at the largest size. The maximum file size you can upload to Creative Hub is 2Gb.

Remember that uploading large files can take a long time and it requires a good internet connection. You’ll be able to see the progress of your uploads within the site.

Let’s start by uploading one or two images to use while we set everything else up. This video will show you how to upload your images once you are logged into Creative Hub, and then set the prices for each image.

Step 3

Set your sizes and print stock

Once you’ve uploaded an image to Creative Hub, you can decide on the sizes and print stock. Creative Hub will automatically detect the largest size of print possible with your current file, but you can add additional smaller versions as well.

If you aren’t sure about what print stock is best suited to your images, you can read more about C-Type printing and Giclée printing on ThePrintSpace website.

Step 4

Set your prices

When you set the size and print stock for your work you can also see how the cost of printing your item changes.

When pricing your work to sell it is important to take into account what your print costs will be and other fees like delivery and transactions costs.

ThePrintSpace have produced a guide to pricing your work which is available as a free PDF.

Step 5

Enter your payment information

In order for ThePrintSpace to print and deliver your orders they need to have your card details on file.

Don’t forget to add your payment details to both Shopify and Creative Hub.
