How To Make Money Selling T-Shirts You’ve Designed

The T-shirt selling business is a potential goldmine. If you have good designs and access to the Internet, you can potentially make a lot of money by selling T-shirts from the comfort of your home. Most sites which pay for your designs don’t ask you for any money to submit your designs, so the only investment you make is your time and design skills. They will usually take care of the printing, advertising, and shipping, so it makes sense that they take a bigger share of the profits. But you should normally expect to get around 25-35% of the profit made from selling T-shirts with your designs.

Create an account

The first thing you need to do is establish an online presence through a T-shirt printing service/outlet of your choice. The shop will handle all the logistics required to print your designs and get the T-shirts out to customers. There are many options depending on location, cost, quality, etc. Do some thorough research before settling on one, but some good places to start are listed below.

Teespring

Spreadshirt

Tfund

Create your design

Once you’ve created your account, you should be able to upload your designs if you already have some. Alternatively, some sites allow you to create your designs from scratch using online drawing tools. Take your time to ensure your designs are clear, readable, and will translate well onto a T-shirt. Most sites have a preview option which allows you to visualize the design. You can try out various T-shirt styles, colors, and designs. This is the most important step because your selling potential depends mostly on this factor.

If you cannot create your design your best option is to go to a site like Fiverr and outsource the work. All it takes is $5, and someone will design a professional looking t-shirt for you to sell on these sites. Click here to check out T-shirt designers on Fiverr.

Publish your design

If your T-shirt service offers an online store, then you can submit your designs for publishing. That way your potential customers can see the designs, order them, and pay for them via whichever payment methods are offered by the service. You’ll get paid a commission for the sales made on your designs and you receive an email when a sale is made. Make sure you choose a T-shirt service which allows you to track all the sales of the T-shirts which have your designs so that you have a clear picture of your sales. Tracking is important because it can give you crucial feedback on what people like and can give you pointers on what to include in your future designs

It’s also generally a good idea to spread your efforts around. So you should open accounts on several websites and try out various designs on each of them. Make sure you read the site agreement just in case some sites restrict you from publishing the same design on different sites.
