Planners! My absolute favorite thing to create. They sell well online also. This one can be a bit more time consuming with intricate graphs and designs, but Canva makes it pretty easy using their templates.

You’ll see me mentioning Canva a lot. (No I’m not affiliated with them, just LOVE what they have to offer.)

Planner Ideas:

  • Weekly planners
  • Daily Planners
  • Wedding Plan Books
  • Budget Planners
  • Household Management Planners

Party Games

Party games sell like hotcakes! You can go so many places with this idea too. Whether you’re throwing a birthday party, a family reunion, or just having a few friends over for a night of fun, a party game can be really fun.

Not only do they provide hours of entertainment, but they can also help to break the ice and get everyone involved in the festivities. There are so many different types of party games you can create.

Types of Party Games to Sell:

  • Baby shower
  • Wedding shower
  • Bridal shower
  • Birthday Party
  • Family Reunion
  • Church gatherings
  • Sunday school games
  • Holiday Themed games

Party Decorations

Again, anything for a party sells pretty well. People are already planning to purchase decorations, so why not purchase something you can’t find at Wal-Mart or Target?

Party Decor Printables Ideas

  • Children’s birthdays
  • Anniversaries
  • Bridal showers
  • Sweet 16
  • 21st Birthday Party
  • Over the Hill 40 or 50

Homeschool Materials

I used to own a homeschool blog where I created and sold printable homeschool materials. I’ve got a couple things on this blog that are similar: Free Printable Letter Tracing Worksheets. You can look at that for a reference of what I’m talking about.

Homeschooling materials sell well on blogs and sites like Teachers Pay Teachers.

List of Ideas for Homeschool Materials:

  • Homeschool planners
  • Binder covers
  • Grade keepers
  • Transcripts
  • Certificates
  • Preschool worksheets
  • Handwriting worksheets
  • Copywork
  • Kindergarten worksheets
  • Unit studies

Just remember that a lot of homeschooling families are frugal & have a tight budget due to living off of one income.

So when you create your homeschool printables to sell you have to give them quality and quantity. Homeschoolers like to feel like they are getting a good deal. (Speaking from experience over here.)


This is very similar to homeschooling materials, except it isn’t going to be geared towards homeschoolers. Worksheets can be geared towards all ages & stages of life.

Examples of Worksheets:

  • Math practice
  • Preschool worksheets
  • Word finds
  • Word Searches
  • Puzzles
  • Other Worksheets that are geared to public school teachers.


I love a good checklist. So, creating checklists is another thing that I like to do for my blogs. Checklists work with pretty much every niche to.

Checklist Ideas:

  • Cleaning checklist
  • Packing checklist
  • School work checklist
  • To-do lists
  • Reading checklist
  • Your Niche Checklist (ex. Blog creation checklist)

Order Forms

I’ve seen a lot of people creating order forms for small businesses. Its a great idea for people who don’t log everything online yet, or who are more paper and pen type people.

Order Forms You Can Create:

  • T-shirt order form
  • Cookie orders
  • Tumbler orders
  • Craft orders
  • General order form or log

Guest Books/ Log Books

Wedding guestbooks and logbooks for businesses can be created easily in Canva or PowerPoint. Creating guestbook printables to sell online is a great way to earn extra income. You can create custom designs to suit any event or occasion and offer them as digital downloads on your own website or on online marketplaces like Etsy.

You can also create a bundle of printables and offer them as a package for a discounted price. To get started, you will need to create your designs in a vector graphics program like Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape.

Guestbook/Logbook Ideas

  • Wedding guestbook (Tip: Add in a “Sign this Guestbook” wall art sign)
  • Birthday guestbook
  • Logbooks for finances & etc.
