More about T-shirts

While there may be other dropshippers that offer print on demand t-shirts, Printful takes the lead by offering many different variations of products that allow you to pick your products by cost, preference, or demographics.

Different Quality and Materials

Different Quality and Materials

Printful offers multiple brands that you can print your designs on. Each brand will vary in cost and quality, so the shirt you choose to plant your design on will be the one that most aligns with your target cost or target quality. Outside of multiple brands, each brand also offers its own tier of quality, some made with 100% ultra cotton, while others give the ability to have a tear away label and athletic fit. There are dozens of different types of t-shirts to choose from. The good news is, you’re not limited to just picking one, you can always add multiple variations of the same style.

Different Styles

Different Styles for Everyone

Not only can you pick your quality, but you can pick your style too. Outside of the basic t-shirt, some other examples in the t-shirt category include:

  • Tank tops in multiple fit variations
  • Track Shirts
  • Polos
  • Athletic tees
  • Crewneck tees
  • Ringer
  • Raw neck tees
  • Classic v-neck

And If you’d like, there are baseball shirts also available.

You can print your design on any of the aforementioned shirt styles with a pretty simple front, back, or sleeve print. However, they also offer “All over print” t-shirts which allow you to create designs that are for the entire shirt, covered from corner to corner. You can also get the inside label to be your brand for an extra cost.

The best part is they have unique products for Men, Women, and Kids, as well as unisex versions. One thing is for sure, you’re not sure on options when using Printful.

Set Your Own Price

Set Your Own Price

Printful provides you the cost for each t-shirt without any hidden fees and then allows you to determine what you want to charge for it. Not only that, you are able to set your price by the dollar amount, but you can also do it by the margin that you want to make on each design, and on each t-shirt size. This is where the cost of the t-shirt becomes important.

Offer dozens of different products with your designs

More than just T-shirts

While starting a t-shirt store is all the rage these days, there is much more you can do with a dropshipping store. Printful offers a tremendous amount of options for online stores that want to expand their catalog and add their designs to multiple products.

Clothing

While T-shirts lead the pack, Printful offers other clothing options as part of their dropshipping offering. This includes warmer clothing like jackets, hoodies and sweatshirts. As well as bottoms like sweatpants, joggers, leggings and shorts!

For women, there are skirts, dresses, swimwear sports bras and available. For kids, there are bibs, leggings, baby bodysuits, and swimwear as well. Like we said, options are not an issue!

Accessories

If you’ve got other products on your site, that means you’ve got designs laying around collecting dust and not being utilized to their full potential. Ready designs can be used to expand your product offering and give your existing customers an opportunity to see their favoraite designs on other useful items. Printful’s accessory options include tote bags, drawstring bags, which can be good for the fitness enthusiast and even backpacks. Other accessories include iPhone and Samsungs cases, as well as jewelry and socks.

Home and Living

If you’re in the home or furniture space, Printful has also got your back with their “Home and Living” category. Your designs can be printed on simple things like mugs and posters. But also on more complex things like beanbags and throw pillows. This can make a perfect addition to any online furniture store. Beach towels are also available, which can pair well if you have swimsuit designs and embroidered aprons for those in the kitchen or food space.

Hats

If you’re selling t-shirts on your e-commerce website, you may want to throw in some products that can turn that shirt into an outfit. Hats are some of the best ways to do that. Printful offer every hat type imaginable that you can drop your design on, and the best part is that they are embroidered. This means that rather than a flat print, your design will be stitched into the hat.

Some of the hat types include:

  • Dad hats/Baseball Caps
  • Snapbacks
  • Trucker Hats
  • 5-panel hats
  • Mesh Hats
  • Beanies
  • Bucket Hats
  • And even Visors

One of the best thigns about Printful is they have many shipping options available. They give you the pricing of each shipping option that exists on their platform and you are able to pick the ones you want available to your customers to include those costs in your shipping checkout. Items like posters have their own shipping pricing which saves you time on calculation. The best part is you can also create one flat rate shipping option across the board. This helps when you don’t sell too many variations of items.

How Printful Works

How Printful Works

1. You integrate your e-commerce store with Printful

The first step is t signup for a free Printful account and integrate your e-commerce store. 3dcart makes this process really simple.

2. Create Your Designs

The next step is to think about what products you want to sell and create the designs for these products.

3. Upload Your Designs

Now its time to see your designs in action! This will be really easy as Printful has a great mockup generator and even lets you tweak the design on the spot with text and graphics. This is the part where you also include all of your product descriptions.

4. Setup Your rates

You can’t make money if you don't add your margin on top of the cost of the goods. Printful also makes this easy by adding either a dollar or percentage value to any product and product size. You’ll also want to set up your shipping rates to make sure your shipping isn’t cutting into the margins.

5. Lauch Your Products!

Now its time to show the world what you’ve created! The best part is, outside of marketing the products, it will be completely hands off for you at this point. Just watch the orders roll in and watch your bank account grow while Printful takes care of all your shopping needs.
