Have you ever thought about selling t-shirts online? Graphic T-shirts are very popular. They are so comfortable to wear and are also very versatile. You can wear them with your favorite pair of jeans or leggings, or dress them up with a skirt and heels. They are also extremely in demand. Because of this, I started dabbling in creating my own t-shirt designs. The t-shirt business is however not for the faint-hearted. In order to succeed, you need to be constantly creating new designs that are creative and that will stand out from the rest and attract buyers. Here are three things you need to make money selling t-shirts online.


The first step in coming up with a t-shirt design is research. You need to know exactly what kind of a message or theme you wish to have on your T-shirts. You also want to make sure that your design is not already trademarked. The internet today is full of various tools that can assist you in brainstorming as you come up with a design. Having the right software and hardware can be a tremendous help as well. Wacom Intuos Bluetooth Creative Pen Tablet is a graphic design tool that has become a game changer when it comes to designing of t-shirts.


It has everything you need to get started with t-shirt design. Wacom’s pressure-sensitive allows you to draw, paint and even retouch photos.

Print on Demand (POD) Company

A (POD) is a company that print the t-shirts you create based as orders are placed. For someone selling t-shirts online, having the right company is a crucial step in having a successful online t-shirt business. A good company should deliver orders on time, produce high-quality products and offer prompt delivery to clients. I have tried two POD companies so far – Merch by amazon, and Printful. Both companies have been great to work with.


If you want your t-shirts to sell, you have to market them. Having a good marketing plan can help skyrocket your business. A good way to market them is by wearing your own shirts. Posting them on your website, or social media channels is another good way of advertising your t-shirts. Wherever you post them, search engine optimization (SEO) should be your number one priority as it has been proven to increase traffic to particular websites.
