TUTORIAL: $10,000/Month with Print On Demand (By Choosing the RIGHT Designs) – Printful Tutorial



hey guys in this video I'm going to show you the secret to picking winning print-on-demand products that can make over ten thousand dollars a month like this one and here is another example of a winning print-on-demand t-shirt they were highlighted on this channel before this design made well over ten thousand dollars every month and this pillow made over ten thousand dollars every month and when transplanted onto these shoes this design also made over ten thousand dollars every month this is going to be an information packed step-by-step tutorial one the secret behind print-on-demand products that make over ten thousand dollars every month why is it that this t-shirt was so successful and a five-figure a month product most people who try print-on-demand t-shirts fail at it I'm going to explain what makes that shirt and this shirt here different from the ones that most people try a sell which will also explain why most people fail at this business – how to find incopy winning designs I am then gonna switch back to my computer and show you step by step how you can find your own potential winning designs and as you're going to discover you don't need to go out there and hire a designer to make them for you there are plenty of great designs that are already out there that you can just copy and use for yourself and as part of this I'm gonna be showing you something crucial I'm gonna be showing you how you can use Facebook to check whether a design is worth testing or not very how to add print on demand products to your Shopify store using printful and as you're going to see it's actually really simple so let's jump straight into it one the secret behind winning products unfortunately when most people attempt to create print-on-demand products they choose the wrong design from the very start which dooms their product to fail now there are two tried and tested methods of creating winning products the first is to target trends personally I'm not a very big fan of this because it feels like you're always on a treadmill chasing after the next big thing the other way is to target super hot passionate underserved niches that don't have many products already and the easiest way to do that is to create your own super hot passionate niche and how do you do that well you cross two super hot passionate niches together this shirt does exactly that it crosses pug dogs with coffee and that's exactly what this shirt does as well it crosses gothic fashion with candy skull themes see let me show you something I went to Facebook and I took a look at the Pug print-on-demand shirt that people were trying to sell unfortunately most of them were only about one thing pugs and inevitably unless these shirts have some clever twist to them they usually fail and the Koreans of them are often really confused they're like oh but people love their pugs I picked a super passionate niche what went wrong well frankly it failed because that's just not enough it's extremely lazy when a park owner that loves their dog sees this they'll think haha that's true I love my dog and have a mild to moderate emotional reaction but when a pack owner who also loves coffee sees this t-shirt logo pug snuggles in coffee another two things that I love most in the mornings I've never seen a shirt like this before take my money this isn't just a mild to moderate reaction this is a strong emotional reaction and emotions are the key to getting people to buy from you was print-on-demand products you want the product to feel like it's speaking to them that it is embodying them in a unique way that they have never seen before and this is how you get them to take out their credit card to how you can find your own winning designs so how can you find these cross niche passion designs well I'm going to switch back to my computer and show you step-by-step how I found my one so as you can see I'm here on shadow stock this is anime in place to find artwork for print-on-demand products I really like that you can just immediately buy what if you want to start testing the designs immediately today without having to wait for a designer to make it for you and since we're looking for underserved Crosse passionate niches we don't have to worry about using an oversaturated piece of art so start off by looking exclusively for illustrations as these usually look the best when printed onto products and once you see it that come and type in just one passionate niche for me I typed in a pug dog and they're just do a search for that I find it's pretty easy to brainstorm and come up with one niche that people are super passionate about but being able to think of two niches that cross well together is a bit of a challenge so what I prefer to do is look up just one passion nation scroll through the art that people have already made and to use that as my inspiration so I scroll down and I look for artwork that crossed pugs with another passionate niche I saw this one which is a cross of two nature's pugs and unicorns both of which have very passionate fans so something like this is way more likely to be successful when correctly targeted on Facebook than these two other designs next to it something I also do want to highlight really quickly is this pattern just a quick tip these patterns are amazing and converts super well for print-on-demand pillows so if you're looking to sell pillows focus your attention on cold prints so that was one cross niche but what I really wanted to find was across these that I knew a lot of bad I find most people and myself included find it easier to sell items and things that they liked or passionate about and for many reasons honestly I'm not passionate about unicorns so I keep scrolling down and of course I found in this design and so I was like ah all of our wholesale kids subscribed there's no my obsession with coffee but this design is terrible for print-on-demand so I open up this listing the cheek for other designs that this artist had made and of course I found this design I really like this design because it can be printed onto lots of different colors and it takes its large enough and clear enough to read and this is especially worth testing on mugs and coffee accessories or is it I thought that these two cross teachers had potential but thinking it might just isn't enough we need to check that there really is demand so to do that come to Facebook and set up a new ad it doesn't really matter what type of ad you create we just want to check the fan base with the targeting tool so make sure that you have the United States targeted and if it's relevant for your cross niche select the jinda and then just come down to targeting now what we want to do is we want to see if we can cross our two niches together and find an audience or between a hundred thousand to 500 thousand people because that size are small enough to indicate that it's highly targeted towards people's passions and interests but it's big enough to have plenty of de Maya buyers sorry which of course is what we want so start out by typing in the primary niche of your cross Nisha's for me that's obviously pug now I had several options to choose from here pike pug lovers I love my pug this one is a bit too small 270,000 is quite narrow and the audience is only going to get smaller when we narrow it with coffee so I win and selected pug levers especially as this is you know more specific to the people that identify with well loving pugs and then I went and clicked narrow audience and selected coffee from the interest lists and boomers we have a reach of a hundred and ten thousand people which is what we want three how to add products to your store so you've found some great cross passion niche designs and you want to add them to your store well we're gonna do that right now and we're going to be using the free Shopify app printful before I switch over I just want to give you guys a quick tip before you go and purchase a design I recommend downloading a free preview image and testing that on a product first to see if it looks good that's what I'm going to be doing in this tutorial and also keep watching because I'm going to show you something pretty cool you see once I made the proper t-shirt in this example store following these instructions I went ahead and of course ordered a sample for myself did you see how my store logo brewed treats was on the package this adds an additional layer of professionalism and also further enhances your brand and I'm going to show you how you can do this as well for this tutorial I'm going to show you how to add it to a t-shirt since they have the most popular products to add to a friend on demand store but to be honest with you I'd probably be more excited to test this design on coffee products but anyway let's switch over okay so come to printful in the Shopify app store and click get and just let that page load it might take a few seconds just be patient okay so once it loads click the install app button once you've done that you'll need to create an account I've already made one so I'm just going to click continue and then you need to let it load it's going to take a few seconds it might even take a minute depending on your connection so don't rush it just be patient and finally it'll be done and then you just need to click the add product button printful has tons of products this shirts mugs phone cases tote bags I'm just going to show you how to add a t-shirt for this tutorial though so just come and click Choose file and then come and click upload and sleep the image again before you buy a design test it using a free sample image like I'm actually doing here because you don't want to go and buy a designer only to find that it looks terrible when printed onto a shirt so once it loads and you've edited so you can expand the image out to see how it looks at the stage if you like it then you can go ahead and purchase the large file for it but for the sake of this tutorial I'm just going to continue now by clicking on the proceed to mock-ups button and double check that all elements of this design especially text are visible and not too small then click the proceed to the description button and of course on this page you can update the text that will appear on your product listing for it you can change the title if you want you can change the description whatever you like when you're done click on the proceed depressing button so on this page you can change prices in two ways firstly you can see it individual prices for each shirt or if you are too lazy you can just add whatever profit margin you want on top of its like say 50% profit for each sale then come to product collections and salute right one and then just click Submit to store and that's it you've successfully added your first print-on-demand item well almost you've got to be a bit patient and like printful finished loading it into your store but of course once it's finally imported you can then open up the listing and see what it looks like in your new store so now we've added products to our store but we need to make sure that we are set up so that let the customer comes in and buys the products that we are able to pay printful for the order so let me switch over to my computer and show you how to do this so come back to the printful dashboard and click the billing button there are different types of payment methods you can use you can use credit card or PayPal just click that add payment method button and then select the save payment method button printful will take a few moments to create a secure connection you just got to be patient so what I'm going to do is I'm gonna blur this part of the video since I obviously don't want to give you guys my credit card details but of course you just have to type in your credit card details here and you need to give your billing address and once you've done that scroll down and click the save payment method button and then just be a little bit more patient and let printful load and when it has that's it alright and of course as I promised you guys I'm going to quickly show you how you can add your store logo to the shipping labels this adds an additional layer of professionalism and of course it strengthens your brand which increases the chances that you're going to get repeat buyers so it's actually really simple in the settings page inside the print fill app just select packing slip from the menu and then click select image to upload find your store logo image file and open it and of course once again just be patient a little bit more loading and once it's done just click Save and boom you were done but remember if you want to have happy repeat customers it is crucial that you give them an awesome product and here are some tips to do that one upload an HD image so that your customers will love this shirt if you upload a low-quality image then it's going to look pixelated on your product and your customers are not going to be happy so to make sure that this doesn't happen you upload your images in 300 dpi dpi stands for dots per inch and so a 300 dpi image has 300 dots per inch you don't need anything higher than 300 dpi the minimum it should be is 150 dpi anything less will come out pixelated luckily printful will tell you if your image is lower in quality the best types of files to upload a PNG or PSD if you upload anything else like a JPEG then you risk your image becoming messed up during the conversion process a lot of great images on Shutterstock are going to be in victor form because this is generally the standard for a lot of illustrations so be sure to convert it into PNG and keep in mind that for shirts the maximum image size is going to be 12 inches by 16 inches when printed onto the shirt so ensure that your image is big enough to avoid images that have backgrounds so do you remember earlier when I was browsing through the Pug images on shadow stock I found this picture it sparked the idea that pugs and coffee could work well together in a design but that was it I did not want to use this picture well the reason for that is it's on a brown background and even if you manage to match the shirt color with that same brown it would still be a big no-no because of the printing process you're going to end up with a line around the image on the shirt not only will it look terrible but there's a chance that print fault will actually reject the order and put it on hold 3 remember that you can print onto more than just shirts as I said earlier in this video with this design I'd be more excited to test it on coffee products instead which of course makes a lot of sense but did you know that you can print onto all sorts of different products wine glasses blankets clocks pillows even shower curtains for avoid getting sued by using the right image license don't forget when you are using print-on-demand to print an image onto something and then go on and resell it you can't use a standard license you need to purchase the enhanced license so as

  1. Just a heads up: I have had a lot of people leave comments accusing me of recommending that people steal artwork. Not true! This video teaches you to PURCHASE artwork from artists & buy the commercial rights extended license. I do not promote stealing artwork at all: https://youtu.be/_PqkmmS-Wqw?t=866

  2. i cant find your shop anywhere, can you give me a link? And do i need to change my shipping address to buyers shipping address when i dropshipp item to them?

  3. Hello,

    Thanks for the highly informative post. Really appreciate it.

    Can you create a video on Using Google ads to sell Printful products? I mean the integration between Printful and Google ads.

    Have a nice day.

    Regards,

    Ashiq

  4. I just wanted to say how much I love your vids, you, your enthusiasm you put forth in all your videos! It is shameful that anyone make you feel bad about anything as you have nothing to feel bad about! I about died when I saw some of your more recent vids! I would chock that up to unscrupulous jealous jerks. You are great & have been 1 of my all time favorites to watch! I appreciate your candor & all you do to try & help people! You rock girlfriend! Keep on keepin on & ignore the haters! You have so many more who love you & your content!

  5. What really annoys me about these videos is how simple you make it seem, It's misleading people. You simply miss out the fact that an enhanced licence for that image cost you 99 euros. If you're going to make 10,000 as you say here then you're going to need to spend 500 / 1000 euros or more on Facebook marketing. A lot of people that watch your content feel desperate for change and you encourage them to throw away money they don't have because they get sucked in by your ridiculous statements.

  6. Is 'Print On Demand' anything like selling Rainbow vacuum cleaners? Nothing new under the sun. Another business pyramid scheme.

  7. I don't understand this. I just found this video on video suggestions..

    Is print on demand a company that sells and prints on tshirts?

    Why would someone buy a picture online and pay someone to print it for them when they can do it on their own?

  8. Hello dear I just sub to your channel I do want to start with leggings from teespring and use your shutterstock to make designs, please can I use to as well and I hope is copyright free? Please reply

  9. Hi Ted,

    I am your lovely brother from India. I want to do dropshipping and just went through all your videos. The SEO videos were cool to get the traffic, but I prefer paid traffic. Can you help me with the money? I don't have any upfront. Not even $10. Please help me, Ted. Please reply me back.
    By the way, I will turn 18 years old when it's May 1 2019.

  10. Hi Sarah need your help please!! I'm trying to start my own shop online and I don't have any experience, my idea is to buy just a few items from Aliexpress, (individual items because through Alibaba I would have to buy big quantities) and resell them on my online shop. Can I do this or should I do dropshipping from this items, it's just because of the time that the items will take to arrive. I've been leaning a lot with your videos, all the best. thank you.

  11. Brought to you by Chauffeur's Deck Sealant. Make your neighbor mad at you when he sees how much his wife enjoys sitting on your deck!

  12. So the customers pay us and then we pay printful? And how did you get the free sample image? Also, I'm not in a position to be paying 30$ a month for shopify; can this work on Zazzle?
