10 Places You Should Share Your Print Designs

Posting your print designs to online design showcase and portfolio website’s isn’t just about bragging rights; it’s also a great way to land new clients who admire your work. Moreover, if you have a streak of altruism (as many graphic designers do), then you can rest assured others will find inspiration in your style and technique, thus your work will serve as a catalyst for the creation of more fantastic designs. There are many good reasons to share your print designs, and few – if any – not to. Here are 10 places you should share your print designs.
