I downloaded POD graphics from Creative Fabrica for this notebook. You can get a free trial of Creative Fabrica using this link.

Note: For creating and selling products on print on demand platforms like Zazzle’s, you should only use the graphics with POD licences.

💖 In 2023 Creative Fabrica introduced their new lower and simplified pricing. I have written a detailed blog post about various plans and pricing structures you can read it here.

On creative fabrica there is dedicated section for these products. Print on demand licence allows you to sell designs without making changes.

Under the POD tab I searched watercolor and selected one of the pink watercolor backgrounds bundle.

It has very good reviews I have downloaded this as a zip folder and found these are the different watercolor backgrounds.

Once you have your graphics, upload them, resize them, and create both the front and back covers.

Add simple text like “Notebook” on the front cover. Customize the font and back cover by going to the layers panel.

Preview the design and, when satisfied, click “Done.”
