When it comes to running this creative business of mine, I need all the help I can get. Luckily, there are tools and resources that I’ve discovered along the way that have not just helped me to stay afloat, but have actually elevated my business and increased my revenue. When I found DesignCuts, I hit the jackpot. They simultaneously provided me with a spot to find everything I ever needed to create new products and services, and have saved me thousands of dollars. If making money while saving money sounds like your kinda thing, read on.
Who is DesignCuts
In case you’ve not yet discovered this awesome website, here’s a little background. DesignCuts is the ultimate resource for fonts, graphics, illustrations, tools and mockups— all the must-haves for a creative looking to build their business. What makes DesignCuts different, is that they sell collections of these creative assets in bundles at an extreme discount (90-99%). So instead of stocking up on 20 different font families for $3000+ you can snag them all for $29. Total. I’ve been using DesignCuts bundles for almost two years now, and I still can’t wrap my mind around the savings.
If the bundles aren’t your thing, and you’d rather purchase your resources one by one, you can tap into their Design Marketplace. Here, you can still find significant savings, and even create your own mini-bundle by pairing your purchase with another resource. The more items you buy, the more you save (up to five items, for a 50% discount).
How I use them in my work
I’m a busy gal. I run two different websites, an online shop and I also freelance. At the end of the day (which for me is often midnight), there’s just not enough time to create my own fonts, illustrations and graphics from scratch. I’ve recognized that my talents lie in designing, and not in fine art. I consider myself to be like a chef who sources the finest ingredients to create her meals, instead of growing those ingredients herself.
I depend on DesignCuts to provide me with the latest and greatest resources, so that I can create fabulous products. This includes new items to sell in my shop, along with free printable designs that I share on Elegance & Enchantment. But that’s just half of it. I also use DesignCuts resources to create promotional items, email headers, blog graphics and marketing materials.
Without DesignCuts, I would either get way less done, or have way less money. Either way, they have become a resource that I cannot run my business without.
How they can help you elevate your business
You’re busy too! Even if you have the time and talents to hand letter your own fonts, or paint your own watercolor backgrounds, chances are you can’t do it all. If you were to put a price tag on your time, what would it be? If it takes you 3-5 hours for you to get out your tools, create your artwork, digitize it, and clean up, it’s got to be at least $150-$250. Wouldn’t it be more efficient to purchase a $29 bundle that includes the font or graphic you need, plus a ton of extra resources you can use for a future project?
I’m not trying to discourage you from creating your own, unique artwork, but know where your talents lie. I tried hand lettering, and I’m terrible at it, so I’m sticking to using fonts created by people who are gifted in that area. If you’ve got the skills to paint your own backgrounds, but aren’t the best at photography, you might consider taking advantage of a past deal like the Extensive Mockup Template bundle. This included a treasure trove of resources for presenting your products in a professional way.

It’s easy to see why each DesignCuts bundle is a source of inspiration for me. Whenever a new bundle is released, I see examples of what has been created, and I cannot wait to use the products to create new designs. The investment of these deals almost always pay for themselves, just in creating a single new product. Best of all, everything you buy comes with an extended, no-nonsense commercial license, which means our potential for generating income as a result of using their products is virtually limitless.
