How to Create a T Shirt Store Using Shopify

Here’s a cool video about how to sell your own custom designed t-shirts (without having to invest in inventory!)

Go to this page (from the Shopify blog) for some useful resources including t shirt marketplaces, mockup generators, crowd funding and custom t-shirt printing and fulfilment apps.

The video gets into the nuts and bolts of starting an online t-shirt business – from strategy to t-shirt quality, design and a step-by-step action plan.

Notice how he talks about finding a niche or area where you can specialise in. (An example is these retro, classic Deus Ex Machina t shirts).

I have lots of word ideas that I want to try making t shirts with. I haven’t done it yet so I’m definitely no expert!

But I can see how t shirts could be a fun creative area to experiment with.

To me, the idea part of the t shirt is where it all starts. All the gems (word bombs!) came from keeping my ears open while other people talked and joked. ☺

Then I simply wrote down what they said in my ideas book.

Next I’ll start with a Fiverr.com t shirt designer to play with illustrations.

What area / theme would you create an online t shirt store in?

Photography
Sports and Recreation
Pet Supplies
Clothing and Apparel

Food and Beverages
Home and Garden
Health and Beauty
Movies and Music

Shopify allows you to easily create your own online store (without the technical work or huge expense of having someone else build it). Manage all aspects of your shop: upload products, customise design, accept credit cards and view incoming orders and completed transactions. Plus create a rocking t shirt store!
