Create A Line Sheet That Makes Selling Easy In Just 20 Minutes.

When a retailer is interested in your product and wants to know more, you need to provide that information AS FAST AS YOU CAN - and come across as established and professional.

But what if you don't have a wholesale catalogue yet?

I've got a quick and dirty solution for you...

20 minute

Sometimes the traditional way of doing things is just WAY TOO SLOW

If you want to sell to retailers, you've probably heard that you need to put together a full-blown wholesale catalogue like this:

There's no denying that

Catalogues are excellent
sales tools, but...

  • They can take days or weeks to put together.

  • They often run to twenty pages - or much more.

  • There's copywriting, photography and design elements to perfect on EVERY SINGLE ONE of those pages.

  • To get the best possible catalogue, you generally need to work through at least two or three drafts.

If you're not at the catalogue stage yet, RELAX.

You can sell your work to shops
WITHOUT a wholesale catalogue.

How do I know for sure?

I'm an indie retailer who receives hundreds of submissions from creative people like you every year.

Do retailers like to see a well-designed wholesale catalogue from a potential supplier? Of course.

Is not providing a full wholesale catalogue an instant dealbreaker? NOT AT ALL.

In that case, what we need is a clear and simple line sheet which sets out what we need to know about buying from you.

Why is The Twenty Minute Line Sheet "Pay What You Can?"

It's because I receive lots of poor-quality line sheets at my store. Formatting glitches, fuzzy photos, a big gap where vital information should be - I see bad examples every day and it sucks, because they waste both the artist's and the retailer's time. The Twenty Minute Line Sheet is Pay What You Can, starting at $10, because I want to make it easy for creative people to design the kind of professional line sheets their products deserve.

Is a line sheet all I need to sell to shops?

No. A line sheet (or a catalogue) is an important part of your buyers' pack, but retailers need to see more. That means your full terms and conditions and a pitch email or letter which introduces your products. How to put those things together is covered in detail in my What Retailers Want training.

Do I need tech skills to take this training?

Not in the least. The videos are narrated screencasts so you can see and hear exactly what I'm doing at every stage. If you miss something, just rewind and watch again. The videos are designed to be accessible to complete beginners. If you take things one step at a time, none of the technical stuff in The Twenty Minute Line Sheet will be above your level.

Is a template line sheet included?

Yes, when you pick up this class you'll get access to my Canva line sheet template. I'll show you how to open, use and customise it.
