Small Business Resources: Design Bundles*

As a self-employed human, I like to try and help others in the same boat. Helping promote small businesses striving for success, helping other sole traders at different stages in their self-employment journeys and sharing resources, ideas & opportunities I believe can help others in similar positions.

I've compiled a few posts on these topics this year - there's so many amazing, affordable or free resources, websites and tools out there that we, as small business owners, can & will really benefit from. But not everyone shouts about them, meaning that we have to learn about these things the hard way; or after having spending hours researching & wasting ££'s on other solutions first.

Today's post is another great resource for small businesses - companies & individuals across many sectors can benefit from this site; when it comes to making designs, products and / or promotional materials. Today we're talking about Design Bundles - who provide access to a number of super affordable digital assets; including mockups, graphics, illustrations, craft files and other templates.

With over one million active customers, Design Bundles provide access to over 150,000 products & assets; saving you big money on Curated Design Bundles with up to 96% off the recommended retail prices you'll see elsewhere. Their easy to use marketplace connects talented independent designers with us - the cost savvy consumer. Totally worth a look.

Want some inspo? Here's a few of the mockup designs I think are most useful for those in small business. For a whole host of purposes.

Design Bundles Mockups

1. FREE iPad Mockup Images; Search iPads Mockups Vol.2

Sorry, I can't cope. FREE, high quality mockups huns. AMAZING. If you're looking to show how your website, social media, app design, digital asset designs etc etc would look on a tablet; these are THE ONES. Perfect for use in business proposals, social media, websites... professional, clean designs which you can download and transform with your own assets; dragging screenshots and images onto the iPad screen & tweaking until it looks perfect. I'm really really impressed with this - I've paid for similar before and have definitely been ripped off now I know about this store!

2.  Instagram Story & Grid Posts Templates & Designs; Search 'Pastel Instagram Stories & Posts'

I constantly see people asking where they can get pretty IG story templates from - or people who want to make graphics for their grids & socials as part of a theme [or create a theme.] These gorgeous, affordable designs are everything; my creative pals. Pretty, customisable and themed - a perfect base for you to build upon and pimp up your socials. Affordable, too.

Social Media Pack; Search 'Hello Social Media Pack'

A lot of the same praises & criteria for the recommendation above apply to this one too. If you're looking to nail a consistent theme, Insta grid or branding / presence across ya socials, packs like these are amazing. Customisable, themed & designed by a professional, these creations help give your channels the wow factor. Whether you're creating designs for a client's socials, or to maximise the reach of your own. 

3. Business Cards Bundles

If you're starting a business & creating your brand, having effective marketing materials is a must. But if you're not sure where to start, can be very daunting! Design Bundles sell bundles of professional, stylish business card design mockups - which are super affordable and can really help take the stress out of defining your branding when you're first starting out.

4. Scene Creators [aka BANGIN' FLATLAYS]; Christmas, Wedding, Desk, Styled

Have you ever wanted to create the perfect flatlay for your blog or socials - perhaps one to frame the centre of the image, so you can overlay text there? Design Bundles have some AMAZING options - with movable objects, meaning you can mockup a flatlay exactly how you want it; for professional results. No matter what the purpose. And no need to mess about with lighting & editing for hours beforehand - or sourcing props. Perfect. Game changing.

5. Product Mockups - Cosmetics, Bedding, Tradeshows

If you're starting your own business - perhaps cosmetics, skincare, tanning products - or even homeware; such as bedding and cushions, Design Bundles have amazing mockups to professionally showcase your designs in contextual settings. One I also found whilst researching this post was a tradeshow layout mockup - which I wish I'd have known about when I designed the layout for a stand earlier this year. Would have made things much easier, clearer to follow when setting up and much more professional looking than my attempts at drawing 😂

I'll definitely be using Design Bundles from now on - will you?
