Redbubble have added a feature to their website where you can edit many products simultaneously. For example, you can edit all your iPhone cases in one screen, without having to go into each artwork and edit them individually. This is a great feature, sure to save artists lots of time.
There are a few things, however, that you should know before jumping head-first into bulk product editing.
Where is the Bulk Editor?
1.Go to your profile pic at the top right and choose Manage Portfolio
2. Click the tick box on each artwork you want to edit
3. Click the Available On dropdown menu, then click the type of product you want to edit
Problem 1: Your Default Background Color Isn't Remembered
Every Redbubble product lets you define a background colour separately. The artwork can also have a default background colour that will apply across all products, which you can then change on a per-product basis as needed.
When you use the bulk uploader, all products that don’t already have a background color defined will default to White. So if you want your new product to match the rest, you should write down the hexadecimal colour codes for your backgrounds beforehand.
Problem 2: Not Every Product Is Bulk Editable
Most products will allow you to bulk-edit them in this manner. But some do not. If you choose to enable a product, instead of bringing up an edit window, you get a blue pop-up saying the product was enabled.
Here is the list of the products that show this popup instead of allowing you to further edit them…

Redbubble Product Template masterpost
While you are editing your products, you might find you need a template to make them look their best. I’ve assembled the best templates by me and the Redbubble community all in one location, free to download.
Despite these minor flaws, the Bulk Editor is still a very valuable feature, and I’m glad Redbubble added it.
