Tutorial: Creating an Offset Pattern in Photoshop

offset pattern photoshop tutorial

Hey friends! Today I’m sharing with you a short YouTube tutorial video I made on how to create an offset repeating pattern in Photoshop. This is one of my first attempts at doing a voice over instructional video. Let me know what you think!

Creating a offset pattern is simple and extremely useful for designing artwork for Print on Demand.

Some Print on Demand websites, like Redbubble, let you make a tiled pattern right in their uploading tool. However, it might not always look just how you want it to. Being able to make your own offset pattern will ensure that your design looks good on the full range of products like leggings, dresses or curtains.

Making a pattern from your design can also be helpful if your artwork is too small to cover the required size for a product. Instead of up-sizing and losing quality, you can make a pattern instead.

Below are some examples of products I’ve made with this technique.
