One of the best ways to make money online is to create and sell custom tee shirts. You can either do this as a standalone business or you can do it as an addition to your current business. For example, if you have an online auto parts business, you can also sell t-shirts that feature various cars, vehicle brands, memes etc. So with that said, we will now look at a few tips and guidelines that will help you to get started in this business.
First of all, you will need a great designer. You don’t need to hire a full time graphic designer since there are many designers who do one-off work or work in a freelance capacity. The quality of your tshirt designs would rely completely on the quality of the designer that you choose, so it is best to take the time to thoroughly check through their portfolio of past work.
One of the best places to quickly and easily find a tshirt graphic designer is on Fiverr. Of course, there are many other platforms that you can also check such as Freelancer, Upwpork etc. You should always look for graphic designers that are highly rated and you should have a conversation with them first, before buying a gig. The designer should not only be able to create high quality designs but should be able to speak fluent English so that you can easily communicate with them. You should also ensure that you get unlimited revisions since this means that you can ask them to fix the design as many times as you need to.
Next, you will need to come up with various design ideas based on your business. Now, in the event that you’re designing these tshirts as a standalone business, then you need to do some research to see what type of designs sell well. You can do this by going on Amazon and looking a the most popular tshirts in various niches. For example, you can look at niches such as pet lovers, specific careers, family, fitness etc. Once you see the most popular designs, you can then create better designs that are more interesting and visually appealing.
After you’ve decided on a design, chosen a graphic designer and the design is complete, the next step is to choose a platform to sell your tshirts. Some popular options include Gearbubble, Teespring, Teemill etc. You can choose one of these options and then create an account and upload your design. You can choose the type of tshirts you want your design on, the color and available sizes. It is best to price your tshirt between $12 – $25 depending on the niche and quality of the design. By doing so, you should make a profit of a couple of dollars, every time a tshirt is sold. Alternatively, you can sell your tshirts on Amazon Merch which is definitely a great option since Amazon will promote your tshirts for you and most people are more comfortable buying on Amazon.
In closing, we have just looked at a quick guide to creating and selling custom tee shirts. So, be sure to closely think about this business and create a clear plan before you get started.
