What is Print on Demand
Print on demand is a process where we work with a supplier to customize white-label products (like baseball hats or tote bags) with our own designs to sell them on a per-order basis under our own brand.
What is Dropshipping?
Dropshipping is an order fulfillment method that does not require a business to keep products in stock. Instead, the store sells the product, and passes on the sales order to a third-party supplier, who then ships the order to the customer.
What is Dye Sublimation?
Dye-sublimation printing is a computer printing technique which uses heat to transfer dye onto materials such as a plastic, card, paper, or fabric. Dye-sublimation printing yields beautiful and permanent colors that are embedded in the substrate or fabric, rather than printed on the surface, thus becoming a permanent part of the item being printed.
I'm not creative, how can I do this?
You don’t need to be a graphic artist to do this. You do need to learn to spot trends and find similar images on the sites I show you. You also will need some minor technical skills which you will learn. Don’t overthink this – a “design” can easily be created by using an app like WordSwag or WordClouds.com. Simply combining text and graphics into a .png file is all it takes, without the need for becoming an artist.
How do I know if my images will sell?
Research is esssential making this business a success. I am going to show you how to find designs that are already selling so you can make similar ones for your store.
Can't I just do this without you?
Absolutely. And you don’t have to be 55+ either. Anyone can do this. But there are some advantages to using my system. Not only am I going to build the initial store for you, I’m going to teach you how to use the various Print on Demand / Dropshipping sites, how to find the designs and products that sell the best, and how to create the files you need.
Can I use this image?
Trademark and copyright laws should be taken very seriously in this business. You should never use trademarks like Disney. But word and color patterns cannot be copyrighted, so you could make a blue and orange football jersey (as an example) as long as you don’t put the NFL logo on it. Don’t just grab images from the internet as they are likely to be copyrighted. There are plenty of royalty-free images that you can use however at sites like Pixabay and Pexels, which you can combine with text to make your own unique designs.
How do you collect payment?
If you are selling on marketplace sites like eBay or Etsy, they will take care of the payments for you and pay you via PayPal or direct transfer. When you take payments on your own website, we will help you set up a payment processor, typically Stripe, PayPal, and/or Shopify payments.
How do you handle shipping?
Because this involves dropshipping, you don’t need to worry about the logistics of packaging items up and shipping them out. Most dropshipping companies will caclualte the shipping for you, so you just need to make sure you are making enough to cover your costs.
Can I really make money doing this?
Great question! While there are certainly “millionaire t-shirt sites,” and I’ve got customers that generate orders of hundreds of dollars every hour, the pupose of this business initially is to make as much as you would working as a greeter at Walmart, with fewer hours. This is absolutely possible – check our the calculator page on this website to see what is possible.
