First things first, you need to invest in quality fonts, clip art, and digital papers. I vouched for this even before I became a seller on TpT. I’m not saying you have to invest a lot! But I promise you will notice a significant bump in the appearance of your products if you do. Many of these sellers also offer generous freebies. Quality digital elements make all the difference in showcasing products! I am ADDICTED to the following sellers/TpT stores for all things digital:
For fonts…..DJ Inkers and KG Fonts
For digital papers…Teaching Super Powers and Lovin Lit
For clip art…DJ Inkers and Melonheadz
Before you begin creating in PowerPoint, all you have to do it change your slide size to suit your needs, and then a blank canvas is yours for the painting!
This one is HUGE and can make the difference between your covers and previews looking more “amateur” or more “professional” and polished. A simple background frame, glow, or shadow can truly make your text and pictures POP and silhouettes beautifully against a background.
To start, highlight the text you’d like to edit, right click, and click “Format Text Effects.” A menu will pop up on the right side of your screen with all sorts of exciting options. You can change the colors, widths, and directions for all text effects. Play around with different options and you’ll find your favorites!
