Preparing your art assets to sell can be incredibly easy. It won’t take much more work than moving a few things into folders and zipping everything into a single zip file.
Use Common Sense Folder Organization
Imagine if you bought an item from the site. How would you want your first impression of the product to be? Disorganized and thrown together? Of course not. So please organize all assets into common sense folders. Below is a great example…
Nice right! And while that preview image looks small, those buttons were actually exported at our 300 dpi (large enough to copy and paste from, and scale down to whatever size the developer requires).
Speaking of Resolution
If your artwork is vector-based, be sure to include the original vector files. This way your developer can export at any size they require. You can also become well-liked among buyers by exporting artwork to high resolution PNG files. In some cases, this might just be a sheet of artwork (like the example above), but ideally, try to export as many files as you can to single documents, at 300 dpi.
Try to avoid using spaces or odd characters in file names, as those can sometimes confuse programs that import in artwork (especially sequential frames of artwork). If you’ll be exporting 1x (non Retina) and 2x (Retina) versions of files please include the @2x naming convention. For example… ball.png and firstname.lastname@example.org …. versus ball.png and ball_HD.png. This is very important for iOS developers.
Over or Under 8Mb?
Our submission form has two delivery options: One for zip files under 8mb and one for zip files over 8mb. If your bundle of art is over 8mb, you can upload the zip file(s) anywhere and simply give us the URL to it. This could be a DropBox folder, our own website, etc. This will save you from having to upload a large file via a form and gives you the option to use an FTP program to upload. Just please don’t password protect the file or delete the zip file until your listing has been made approved and live. For large files, we’ll transfer them to our secure Amazon S3 account, at which point you can delete the zip file uploaded for us.
You can set variable prices for your products. For example…
Incredi-Boy Character – For use in a single app Price $9.99
Incredi-Boy Character – For use in up to 3 apps Price $15.99
Incredi-Boy Character – For use in an unlimited number of apps Price $29.99
To keep things simple, when submitting a product, you can suggest a price for use in a single app, and we’ll figure out appropriate prices for the 3-app and Unlimited Pricing options. Or feel free to suggest those prices as well.
Typically we do not sell anything for under $9.99
