A day and a half. A day for designing and the rest for preparing the item preview, description. But, it really depends on the item.
Never less than a few days – every morning when I look at my file again I see sth to improve … until one morning I think it’s ok
My longest was sth like 3 weeks. But obviously I also do other things in that time. I just need to let it sit sometimes and come back to it.
Lately what I also do is make several items of one: My latest mockup is actually the result of me needing a mockup as part of a a new file. So I took a few days to create a great quality mockup, and submit it as a standalone. Now I continue on my item which has a “hoodie” which I created using my own mockup ...
I also create different variations of the same design. Example: My “colorful fresh” line has a trifold, bifold and facebook cover. It will also have a business card and probably a website at some point down the road.
So I may spend a long time on an item, much longer than others, but I then also make sur ethat I can create an entire line of designs with it.
At least that’s the idea … until I get sidetracked again … lol.
Good job I’m just doing this for fun!
