Today I am reviewing a digital marketplace that is promising to bring you the best deals for digital design assets. A marketplace where designers and creatives promote their artwork and where thousands of companies are looking for daily exclusive deals.
Slogan: The best deals for digital design assets.

So What Is Inky Deals All About?

Whatever your niche is, your website theme or your content, there are awesome suggestions that you could take advantage of.
- Once you have purchased a bundle it is yours forever.
- They accept paypal and credit cards and you get an invoice.
- Most of the deals belong to the royalty-free category which means that you can use them for personal and commercial use. Otherwise, they include any necessary information.
- However, you are not allowed to resell or distribute the files in any case. If you want for example to let someone else get these deals you can direct them to their website.
- They offer refunds, there is a 60-day money-back guarantee if you are not satisfied with the quality. They will refund you on the spot but it would be nice if you give them a reason so that they can improve their future deals.
- The free deals (freebies) include instructions and are followed by the appropriate documentation. If you want to share their free products with others you can provide them with a link to their website. It would very nice if you could spread the word of mouth in those free offers with your social networks.
For example, I got today an excellent offer for ZERO dollars with an extended multi-use license. I am allowed to use them in an unlimited number of projects without fees or the need of any attribution. But they include at the end of the deal buttons for a social announcement on Facebook, Twitter, Google plus or other mediums. I always “like” and share these deals on my social accounts.
Additionally, I have created on my website a separate special thank you page where I mention all the websites that helped me with such free offers and I provide a link back to their websites.
You can read the full terms and conditions on their website.
The InkyDeals Blog And Their Sister Website
Moreover, they run a small blog where they announce some updates. For example, earlier on June, they were giving away 5 Adobe Creative Cloud licenses for life to 5 lucky winners. Additionally their sister website – Pixel77 – has more information on design with articles, tutorials, and other resources. You can find articles like “The influence of art history on modern design” or “How to draw characters – Tutorial on illustrator” and many other useful data.
Selling Your Products as a Vendor
You can join hundreds of vendors already selling their digital products. Advantages for vendors:
- No upfront marketing costs
- Exposure to a large audience
- Extra marketing channel
- Test products really fast, get traction to products you launch
- They handle payments, refunds, affiliates, promotions on partner websites
What you get:
- Extra income without spending anything on marketing
- Free website traffic
- Editorial features on their partners’ websites
How it Works:
After you submit your product, one of their colleagues will contact you to discuss if your deal fits their audience. Once everything is in place (agreements, terms & conditions) you start working on the promotion of your product.
They do the featured image, the copy for the deal description, they set up the systems so customers can access the product as fast as possible. Once the promotion has started they start promoting your deals to maximize revenue and impact. Once the promotion is over, after 2-4 weeks you get your payment via Paypal or bank transfer.
The InkyDeals Affiliate Program
If you enjoy their artwork you might consider joining their affiliate program, all you have to do is to subscribe in their email list and submit an application form. They will review your application manually and they will respond with an email asking you some questions. In that case, I would suggest that you are active on social networks or have a website up and running. I am participating in their affiliate program and if you buy anything from their designs through my links I might get a commission.
That makes InkyDeals a very special opportunity in the affiliate marketing business. You can make some decent commissions if you drive targeted traffic to their website. It is the ideal solution for bloggers or marketers into “Design” Niches. When your online traffic consists of designers, artists in general, they would be very interested in buying or testing their deals.
A totally legit funnel between you and your visitors. If they stay satisfied with them, they could even grab the chance to do the same as you.

Final Opinion – Conclusion
All the deals I got from their website are of High Quality. I guarantee that you will stay satisfied. The InkyDeals artwork is created by design professionals that co-operate with InkyDeals. Their prices are very fair and I consider them pretty low compared to other websites. There are huge discounts from time to time with coupon codes or straight away. You can test their work, they always have free offers for you to collect.
Imagine there are packages of illustrations including icons and other formats about animals, tools we use in our everyday life, human faces, fonts all mixed up and for let’s say 400 different elements they charge only $10 – $40.
It depends on the design and the style, and every bundle follows other paths but I guarantee that “What You See Is What You Get” and they are a friendly company where you can talk or participate in their mini forum,

That’s it, another review has finished, here on Web Market Support. I am waiting for your comments and thoughts. Till next time.
Some of the links on this page are “affiliate links”. This means if you click on the link and purchase a product, membership, or service, I may receive an affiliate commission at no extra cost to you. Regardless, I only recommend products and services I use personally or I believe will add value to my readers. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s: Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.

I’m intrigued by this Inky Deals site, particularly the 65 Premium PSD Flyer Templates. I was astonished to see that they say the list price is as much as $657 but has been reduced to $19. Is the list price really as much as that? But when I looked at the quality of the images in the package, I was genuinely impressed. These are really professional designs, and with them being in PSD format, that means you can easily edit them so they fit with whatever you need the design for. Serious impressed!
Welcome back Marcus , yes , this is a trick they use to apply for all of their prices.To show an impressive discount of 90% or more.I don’t usually agree with that tactic but the important part is that the final prices are really affordable.Additionally all the designs coming from talented professionals and the editing is pretty easy.You can change variants and prepare them for your projects accordingly.
Thank you for your interest , your kind words and for taking the time to discuss it with me.Good luck with your selections and … merry christmas.
I have never heard of inky deals before. It sounds interesting. I have been thinking about changing my site background but haven’t yet because I’m no good with photoshop or other photo editing software. I have always wanted to get into affiliate marketing and their program sounds good too. I’m going to check out your page on how to become an affiliate marketer. Thanks for all the info.
Welcome Merceadez , you can become an affiliate by building a website and then you have to bring traffic.Then it is when the real opportunity begins.
Thank you for visiting my blog and for your interest.
Hi. I like your site and am going to bookmark it and come back when I need some graphic designs. Although they say content is king, most people are visual and if a site does not appeal to the senses then a visitor is not going to stick around.
I am not very good at design. I think my brain is far too logical to cope with the artistic side of life. I would certainly be very interested in the 3 day free course when it is ready.
Hi there Christine , I agree , “content is king but without a queen he is like a dead man”…Some people do not believe in the power of visuals and design , but I do.The websites that I am visiting the most are all with nice graphics.I want my eye entertained when I reading texts.
It is not that you are not good , you just have to let yourself express your feelings.Along with practising and studying anything can be accomplished.Besides those websites that offer these design bundles literally they do the work for you.Then you may combine elements together and experiment to produce your own artwork.
Thank you for this visit , for your beautiful comments and support.
I just begun to create my website 2 months ago and you can’t be more right than when you say content is the more important thing to start with. But when you do begin to drive traffic it is important to have a professional image for your customers. Can you choose your theme when buying from them, for example if I need graphics about video games can they make that for you? Thanks for your help!
Hello there Phil , yes content is king but modern websites are getting professional looking using quality graphics and images.There are designers inside the Inky Deals team that and they would answer any of your questions.At the moment they gather graphics and designs from many other designing websites and they create bundles.Furthermore I know that they own a sister site , the Designious , may be you can check it out and contact them.I am sure if you are looking for custom made graphics they can easily provide a solution for you.
Thank you for stopping by and for participating.I wish you good luck with your new website and if you check Inky Deals I would love to hear any update from you.
This sounds like a fantastic resource!
The biggest pitfall for new web entrepreneurs is finding the correct images to keep their website looking premium, sometimes pictures taken with your cell phone, while adding a personal touch, lack in professionalism.
I think the idea of low cost bundles is great as well, instead of purchasing one image and paying a lot.
Welcome back Aiden , yes it is a resource that I use and trust.Their designs are professional and very cheap.As you clearly stated , sometimes our own photos taken with cell phones lack on the quality.For bloggers and entrepreneurs that have a lot of work , these design deals can save time and energy.We can not produce everything alone.And buying in the format of a “Bundle” is very cost effective.Additionally these artworks never lose authority as time passes by.
Thank you for the visit and for leaving your comment here.
I haven’t done too much with graphics on my site as work and hunting boots are so product specific.
There have been times when a graphic or a design of some sort could have added much to my post.
Also the technical parts to adding graphics has kept me away, It has always seemed pretty difficult!
InkyDeals sounds like the kind of resource I might actually be able to use!
This will make a great go-to resource the next time I fund myself in need of a graphic.
I will definitely check it out!
I absolutely agree here with you Marant.If designing is one of the tasks that seem very daunting or even time consuming for you then websites like InkyDeals might be the solution you are looking for.
There are thousands of design elements that you could choose and use without any additional work , if you could spare a few dollars of your budget.
I wanna thank you for visiting my blog and taking the time to leave your questions here.Additionally I wish you all the best with your projects.
You are absolutely right about having a nice web design. There is no point creating wonderful content, if people can’t stand the layout or design of your website. Inkydeals sounds like a pretty cool place to start for creating a much more attractive site for your customers. Do they have designs to suit all sorts of niches?
Absolutely Todd , their artwork covers every niche of the market.There are modern , classical , retro designs.Everyday new productions and bundles are added to their portfolio , some of those dedicated to specific niches.
They do cover pretty much anything that has to do with web design and they keep updating their offers constantly.
Thank you for your time and your participation in my blog.
Hi, I was wondering if you can manipulate the graphics using a vector program like Illustrator or Coral Draw.One thing I don’t understand is if you buy the bundle , download it and decide to get a refund, you could still be able to use the graphics.I don’t think they should allow the downloading, just like Clickbank products. Just to make it fair to the developers.
Hello Lorren , the products you buy or even the freebies can be manipulated with any software you might like.You can mix them , change , edit , modify them , anything really.They include documents with instructions in almost all cases.
In the case of the refunds , you still keep the downloaded files.Now , I believe , it is in your hand not to use them.If you stay unsatisfied with their product , why to use it anyway?…In every case they will ask for a reason and they will communicate with you for any details.
Thank your for your visit and your participation in my blog.
That’s pretty cool how they have graphic design bundles like that, but what if you just need the service once?
Their affiliate program would be the way to go if you use them, essentially you could use their designs for free at that point?
Seems pretty legit. I might actually check em out myself
If you buy one of their bundles and you don’t want to buy a new one , you can easily unsubscribe from their email list , Matt.
If you participate in their affiliate program , even if you don’t use their designs , you could still drive traffic to them and make your commissions.
You could check it out , I believe you will stay satisfied.I wanna thank you for re-visiting my blog and for your questions.
