Step 2: Choose a Print-on-Demand Partner

Once you’ve set up a Shopify store, it’s time to choose your print-on-demand partner. You’ll want to make sure you pick a tool that will give you the best quality, selection, speed, and, of course, price. 

Printify is the best print-on-demand choice for Shopify. The company delivers on all these factors with 700+ high-quality products ready for custom designs and a network of more than 110 print locations worldwide.

Step 3: Create Designs and Your Custom Products

This is the most crucial step. Great design is vital. People want to buy great-looking products that they’re excited to get their hands on. But where to get the designs to sell on Shopify?

Make your own custom designs if you know how to use software like Photoshop or Illustrator and have a great design idea. Create your own designs and sell online to your target audience.

Hire a designer! This is a great way to ensure your designs look gorgeous and come in the right size and format for POD. Ask your network, try a marketplace like Fiverr, or try our Experts program.

Buy pre-made designs to sell on Shopify. Take advantage of our Printify x Shutterstock integration, find royalty-free artwork on Pexels or Unsplash, or buy designs from artists on Etsy.

Step 4: List Your Products

With your Shopify store set up and your products designed, it’s time to start listing them, so you can sell them! Start small with 10 products, and drive some traffic to your store with SEO or paid marketing. Sell custom products on your own online store and send your design ideas directly to your customers.

Suppose you want to be sure your customers are getting great quality products. In that case, we recommend ordering samples, so you see and feel what you’re selling. With your products in your hands, you can also take pictures for your listings, paid ads, or social media channels.

The reality is that hats never go out of style. Baseball caps, trucker hats, and beanies – there’s a season and occasion for them all. The fact that the headgear market is expected to grow at a rate of 6.45% from 2020 to 2025, backs this up – making our hats a great addition to any store.

Because of its versatility and simplicity, a hoodie will always be one of the most popular print-on-demand products around.

The classic tank top has never gone out of style, and right now, the universal basic is taking center stage thanks to the resurgence of Y2K and genderless fashion. A tank top is truly versatile: wear it as a gym top, pair it with your beloved pair of jeans, or just lounge in a summer garden. Tank tops are a must-have item in anyone’s closet.

Whether you’re a seasoned online store owner or just starting out, mugs are excellent products to customize and sell. A custom mug is simple, practical, and used daily by anyone who drinks warm beverages (that’s almost everyone).
