How to categorise specific expenses (Raw materials, packaging, digital subscriptions)

I'm in the process of setting up a personalisation company (clothing, printed items), and am unsure how to categorise certain business expenses. Apologies if this is the wrong board for this.

I've detailed some of the expenses I'm a tad confused by 
below, along with how I've currently categorised them. If someone could advise whether or not the categories used are appropriate, and suggest corrections if warranted, I'd greatly appreciate it.

I can tell there's going to be something of a learning curve with all of this....

Digital Subscriptions (Adobe Creative Cloud, Image Licensing)Subscriptions
