I have made it no secret that I don’t have the time or space to sell physical items. I’ve taken a step back on that front and also added a new service to my repertoire.
Unlike services such as Redbubble, I’ve discovered a company called Printful that can made print-on-demand products, but work in the background. That means the items go on my website and it’s a much more direct retail type of setup. A customer buys an item, they pay me for it, and the Printful charges me to make and shop the item to the customer. There’s no percentage or fee to figure out. I set my retail price above Printful’s prices and that’s how I make my profit. I get to see exactly how much I’m making.
The very good news about Printful is that I can order one-off custom designs as well! If I have a client that wants a t-shirt made, then I can make the design and fulfill the physical order via Printful. I don’t have to waste time and money driving around or waiting for an online order to come in the mail so I can make the shirt myself. I can’t say I love it yet since I haven’t received an order yet, but it’s something to try. The products are helping fill my store with items to sell that are of my own design, so to speak. That’s really what I care about.
Please check out my shop! I’d love some feedback.
Take it easy and remember to smile!
