here’s a different take on the social media PSDs. i made these for my characters but people have been asking me to upload the PSD, so here you go. no credit is required but please tag me in your post–i’d love to see it!!
fonts: kohinoor devanagari font family (can’t find download)
all of the PSDs are in one PSD, organized into groups–it should be pretty easy and straightforward to use but if you’re a super-beginner to photoshop, i wouldn’t suggest you use this

If you’re on Society6 you might be already familiar to the pain of having carefully positioned your designs on a product and put it up for sale only to discover that it’s weirdly cropped and there is an elusive phone camera right over a character’s face. If you’re not there yet but will join soon you might want to save yourself from such annoynance!
To avoid such situations I have created templates for some of these trickier products; now I’m sharing them with you! They have been personally tested by me as I uploaded everything in my shop.
