T-Shirt Profits 101


Introduction

T-shirts have been incredibly popular for decades. Theyre

comfortable, durable, and come in a dizzying array of colors and

styles. You can find a t-shirt for just about any kind of interest you

can imagine.

People love to purchase t-shirts that speak of the things they are

passionate about. Whether its their family, their hobby, their

profession, their pet, or something else, people enjoy wearing t-

shirts that let the world know what theyre into.

For this reason, creating t-shirts can be incredibly lucrative. If you

can find a topic that speaks to a large group of people, create an

attractive design that really works for that group, and then put

that design in front of the right people, it is almost certain to

make money.

Of course, finding the right topics and designing well to fit

that niche is the tricky part. It takes a significant amount of

time and research to find topics and designs that will

succeed.

In this guide, youre going to learn about some of the tricks the

pros use to make big money in the t-shirt market. Youll learn how

to find hot topics, how to get great designs, and how to market

those designs to the right people.

Lets get started.

T-Shirt Profits 101


Identify Your Niche

The first thing you need to do is choose a passionate niche, but

keep in mind that not every passionate niche would have fans

who would be willing to buy t-shirts. For example, there are

certain groups of people who dont buy graphic t-shirts as often as

others. College kids tend to buy a lot of graphic t-shirts, while the

older generation does not. So you must not only keep the niche

itself in mind, but also the market (people) that are interested in

that niche.

There are certain niches that are virtually evergreen niches. These

niches will tend to have a much greater potential for profit,

because people have proven over many years they will buy shirts

in these niches.

Such niches include:

Pets

Family & Romance (especially children, grandchildren and

couples)

Emergency & Medical Careers (nurse, paramedic, EMT,

firefighter)

Artistic Careers (writer, artist, designer, chef)

Nerdy Stuff (science fiction, fantasy)

Sports (football, baseball, basketball, soccer, golf, racing)

Hobbies (crafts, cooking, camping, fishing, hunting, reading)

Gaming (console games, tablet games, PC games)

Retro (especially stuff from the 80s)

T-Shirt Profits 101


These are a few good ideas to get you started, but these markets

are also pretty competitive. There are thousands of new shirts put

on sale every day in these exact niches. So if you want to find

topics that are a little less competitive, it will take a bit more

research.

One thing you can do is check pins on Pinterest. Try searching for

t-shirt and look at the most popular designs. See what colors

and styles are being pinned, and what those niches are. Look for

the pins that have the most repins and likes.

Here is an example:

T-Shirt Profits 101


In the above example, you can see this shirt has had 702 repins

and 137 likes. This is clearly the type of shirt people are interested

in, so making something in this particular niche would probably be

profitable.

Keep in mind you can’t just use someone’s slogan without

checking to see if it’s been trademarked. You dont want to

make a shirt with a slogan you saw online and later find out

its trademarked because youre being sued.

You can also check the bestselling shirts at a wide variety of online

t-shirt sellers to see whats doing well.

T-Shirt Profits 101


Copyright &

Trademark

Information

One thing you absolutely must keep in mind is that you cant just

create any kind of shirt you want, even if its your own unique

spin on it.

For example, you cant just do your own illustration of Harry

Potter and put that on a shirt, because Harry Potter is

protected by Copyright and Trademark laws. You cant use a

major sports team, because those team names, logos, and

colors are trademarked.

You can still use sports teams, but youd have to do it in a way

that does not infringe.

For example, I once saw a shirt being marketed to fans of

the Georgia Bulldogs that said, Black & Red til Im Cold &

Dead. That same slogan could have applied to any team, in

any sport, that used those colors for their uniforms, such as

the Atlanta Falcons.

You could also look into licensing if youre really interested in

using something that is copyrighted or trademarked.

T-Shirt Profits 101


Lets say you wanted to create a line of t-shirts for fans of Game

of Thrones or Big Bang Theory. Youd have to contact the legal

department of the production companies to inquire about

licensing. Youre not likely to get permission at a price you can live

with, but it doesnt hurt to try.

Remember that even common phrases can be trademarked.

Just because youve seen it on other t-shirts and even on memes

online, doesnt mean its legal to use it.

Designing Shirts

If you already know a little bit about graphic design, it shouldnt

be too difficult to create images for your t-shirts. Pretty much any

design program (Photoshop, Illustrator, GIMP, etc.) is fine for

creating t-shirt designs. Most systems accept image formats such

as JPG and PNG, allowing you to use whichever program you

prefer. Most systems also provide templates you can download to

ensure youre creating the right size image for your shirt.

You can look at existing successful t-shirts for ideas for designs.

Obviously, you don’t want to copy their designs. Just use them for

inspiration as far as colors, layout, and the type of graphics you

might want to use. You could also hire someone to design your

shirts for you. Its nor difficult to find freelance designers that are

hungry enough for work that theyll create basic t-shirt designs for

you for just a few dollars. Lets say you pay a designer $25 to do a

simple design. Even if you only sell a handful of shirts, youll still

make a profit off that design.

Craigslist is a good place to start. You could always post an ad

looking for a designer for t-shirt graphics. Mention how much

youre willing to pay, and ask for samples.

Many of the most successful t-shirts are nothing more than

interesting text arranged in an eye-catching, pleasing way. Even a

beginner can learn to create simple designs without much

trouble.

T-Shirt Companies

A few years ago, only a handful of print-on-demand shirt websites

existed. Sites like CafePress (cafepress.com) and Zazzle

(zazzle.com) pioneered the field, but they failed to really make the

kind of impact the newest generation of sites has made.

TeeSpring

http://www.teespring.com

Teespring really exploded the market by creating a system that

would allow time sensitive promotions, making people more apt

to order immediately rather than waiting. Their system uses a

combination of time (a countdown during which time the item

must be purchased before it becomes unavailable) and scarcity

(calling items Limited Edition and insinuating they may never be

offered again) to inspire people to purchase right away.

Teespring requires you to sell a certain number of shirts before

any shirts will be printed, so if you dont meet that minimum, your

efforts will all be in vain. This makes it tricky for beginners,

because you never know for sure if a design will meet the

minimum to be printed.

Skreened

http://www.skreened.com

Skreened (skreened.com) is one of a growing number of socially

conscious companies. They ensure their shirts are not made in

sweatshops, and they give money to various charities. They are a

very popular choice.

Society6

http://www.society6.com

Society6 is a company that has set itself apart from other

companies by allowing all over printing. Most t-shirt companies

only allow printing in certain areas of the front and back of a shirt.

Society6 allows you to print your design over the entire surface of

the shirt. They also have other items like leggings, and you can sell

art prints, too.

Other Alternatives

There are dozens of other popular sites that will allow you to sell

your t-shirt designs. They vary in features and pricing.

Here are a few you can check out:

http://www.cafepress.com

http://www.zazzle.com

T-Shirt Profits 101


http://www.redbubble.com

http://www.theprintful.com

http://www.spreadshirt.com

This is just a small selection of the many sites that offer print-ondemand

t-shirts.

Its a good idea to take a look at several of the most popular sites

and see which one looks like the best fit for your purposes.

Marketing Your

Shirts

You cant just create t-shirts and expect them to sell. It would be

great if it worked that way, of course, but it doesnt. Its important

to actually promote your shirts if you want to make any money.

There are a number of ways you can promote your shirts, and

were going to take a look at a few of the best.

Pinterest

https://ads.pinterest.com/

There are two ways to promote your shirts on Pinterest. The first,

of course, is simply pinning your images on your own Pinterest

account.

This isnt against their rules as long as youre not using an affiliate

link.

There are also paid Pinterest ads that allow you to get more views

than you could by simply pinning ads on your own account.

T-Shirt Profits 101


Facebook

https://www.facebook.com/business/products/ads

While its certainly possible to promote t-shirts on Facebook

without spending money, its very difficult and will probably only

lead to you getting blocked from the pages and groups you try to

advertise to. (Unless, of course, you already have your own group

or page with a lot of members.)

Facebook ads can be targeted by interest, so ads can be

remarkably effective. But its a good idea to test a design with a

small budget first to be sure it converts. If you spend $20 on ads

and dont sell a single shirt, it might be time to try a different

niche or a different design.

Wanelo

https://wanelo.com/

Wanelo stands for Want, Need, Love, and it is a Pinterest-style

website that allows users to submit their favorite products. Its

free, and it doesnt take much time. Only certain shops like

Skreened are available, but if you set up a shop with Shopify.com

to sell your shirts, you can use Wanelos Shopify app.

Conclusion

Selling t-shirts can be an incredibly powerful way to make money

online, and it requires very little to no upfront investment, making

it a great option for people who dont have much money to start a

business.

Youll need to have a little bit of design experience if you dont

want to pay someone else to design your shirts for you, but as

long as you can use a program like Photoshop or use something

like TeeSprings online designer, you can do this yourself.

Remember, you will need to do some marketing, but basic

promotion can be done for free. Pinterest is one of the best places

to promote your t-shirts for free, but they also have a paid ad

platform that can be profitable. Facebook is another ideal place to

advertise, but you probably wont get very far without putting

some money into paid ads.

Take the time to thoroughly research what kinds of shirts are

currently selling. Dont just waste time making designs that may

or may not sell. If you take the time to do some research first, you

will increase your chances of selling a lot of shirts and making a

profit.

I wish you the best of luck with your new t-shirt business!
