2. Choose Your Print Provider

With Printify, you’ve got world-class print providers at your fingertips. We love laying low and letting your business shine: your customers will only see your brand and your design when you make your own shirt and sell it online.

Make your own shirts come to life with over 80 printing providers from all over the world – US, Canada, Europe, and even Asia. This means shorter delivery times and lower shipping costs no matter where your clients are.

3. Design Your T-Shirt

The next step is where you get to play around and have some fun: the Printify mockup generator. In short, it’s a design tool with which you can add artwork and custom texts on any of our blanks and then come up with realistic-looking product mockups to upload to your online store or social media channels.

The process is simple: upload your design and then adjust the image placement. You can also select your product variants – available colors and sizes.  Once you’re finished with the designing process, use the preview mode to see realistic product mockups. If you don’t like what you see, you can keep editing – resize the photo, adjust text size, etc. 

After it’s done and you’ve chosen the product variants you want to offer in your eCommerce store, easily edit the product details: description and pricing. Printify’s mockup generator makes it so easy to make your own shirt or other apparel and accessories within minutes and publish them straight to your online storefront.

Bonus Step – Sampling

Remember, in Step 1, we mentioned checking the print quality? Before you get to selling, we always encourage our merchants to order product samples to make sure they match or exceed your expectations. Product sampling is basically ordering one of each product you’re about to sell in your store, for example, your brand new t-shirt design.

After your brand new custom shirt has been published to your store, you don’t need to do much more. The whole process from this moment is fully automatic.

You don’t need to put your money upfront until your customer makes a purchase. The first monetary transaction occurs when purchase from your store is made – you keep the markup and only pay the amount you see in the catalog. So, when a purchase is made, the fully automated printing process, packaging, and shipping take place. And that’s the beauty of print on demand – it saves you time and effort so you can focus on what you do best. 

Print-on-demand dropshipping business model lets you save time and money: there’s no need for substantial upfront investments, no need for storage space or inventory. Furthermore, you only pay after you sell, you can never go out of stock, and you never have any unsold products (the kind that usually ends up as Christmas stocking stuffers).

Start Selling Your Own Shirts

Now that you’ve successfully finished with your mission: make your own shirt, you can start selling it on some of the most popular online marketplaces in the world. WooCommerce, eBay, Wix, Etsy, Shopify and more.

But Wait a Second.
What Is Print on Demand?

Make Your Own Shirts With Print on Demand

Print on Demand (POD) is a business model for producing custom products on demand: the production starts only after the customer makes a purchase. Virtually everyone can make merch online. With POD, a client can buy custom t-shirts, phone cases, mugs, bags, home decor, and other goods, receiving unique items for competitive prices.

Besides, with POD, the order goes directly to a print provider, thus freeing merchants from the need to hold a massive stock of products. This allows avoiding piles of unsold items – it’s wallet-friendly and oh so very sustainable. 

Also, with POD, there is no order minimum because digital printing is equally affordable when you’re just starting out, as well as if you’re a seasoned merchant. So, you can design and order just one t-shirt or order dozens of them – there’s no minimum.

We Have Prepared Valuable Resources for Getting Your First T-Shirt Sale:

Covid rapidly accelerated trends away from traditional business attire as people locked in their homes decided comfort took precedence over superficial appearance.

At this very moment, there are people – real people – wearing bad, substandard, or improper shirts. It’s true.

Frequently Asked Questions

It depends on the brand and other factors. There are over 80 print providers in our network. Most of our printing partners are located in the United States. However, we have locations all over the world, including Canada, Europe, UK, and Asia.

When you make your own shirt, you can expect for it to be fulfilled anywhere from 2 to up to 5 business days, depending on the chosen print provider. If there’s a major public holiday, the production time can be a bit longer. You can follow the status of your orders in your Printify account, helping you stay on top of customer questions and requests.

With Printify, t-shirts start from just $5 and, depending on the printing facility, t-shirt brand and other factors can go up to $20. Remember, if you’ve subscribed to Printify Premium for just $29/mo, you automatically get up to 20% off of all items in the catalog.

With Printify you can order as many products as you want, there is no minimum. Be it just one awesome t-shirt or a line of streetwear. And you only place your order with us when you get a sale. No more old products, no more leftover stock, and more importantly, no wasted money – no minimum is a winner for everyone.

It’s best if you did. All our products can be ordered as samples with your design. We always encourage you to sample your products before you start shipping them out to customers. As with any custom product, you should always check that your custom design t-shirt matches (or exceeds) your expectations. Here is more info on ordering samples.

In our catalog, you will find such global favorites as Gildan, Bella+Canvas, Anvil, Champion, Next Level, and so much more. You can filter the shirts by brand, print type, location, color, and even print provider.

Now this question is not easy to answer. Direct to garment vs. sublimation (or all-over-print, AOP) – the choice is yours. Each of these types has its pros and cons. Not all t-shirts can be sublimated. That’s why we have a separate section for AOP clothing. If you want a continuous pattern that covers the entire garment, AOP is your friend. If, however, you only wish to adorn a portion of the garment, DTG is what you want.
