You can go as creative as you want to be as there are no restrictions related to the position of the design.

You can even put designs on to the back of your t-shirts to make it look more appealing, even from the back side.

Before uploading you will need to check if your file size is under 50mb or as teespring doesn’t allow you to upload images more than 50 MB in size.

Set the price

In the designing tool, you will also find an option to set your prices.

Once you set the prices you can directly see what profit you will make per sale.

Each and every t-shirt has a different price tag so you will need to keep on looking for the perfect t-shirt for the price you want to sell it at.

There is one thing to Remember the price you set will include VAT taxes which well get deducted when you withdraw your money from teespring.

Get Traffic to Your Page

Once your all set and have your t-shirt ready to sell the next thing that you will need to do is get people to the product page so that they could buy the t-shirt.

Now there are different ways you can do this but it all depends upon on your T-shirt design.

Here are 17 different ways you can bring free traffic to your page.

Most of the people choose different types of advertisements such as Facebook ads, Instagram ads, Google ads and many more to sell their t-shirts which is one of the quickest and the fastest way to test if your designs are working or not but if you don’t have enough money you can always use the free traffic method and see if it works.

Free traffic is always a little bit slower than paid traffic but if you can pull it off you make a lot of money without even spending a Penny.

My Experience

I did a lot of research on this and tried out myself and I was able to get only two sales with an average design which I design myself and I am not a good designer.

The way I did that was I targeted a specific group of people who are interested in a particular subject and created an Average looking design to print on the t-shirt.

Once I got my product page I started posting it on Facebook groups, Reddit, and a bunch of Forums which are related to the same topic.

I did this for at least a week continuously without taking a break and just over 300 people visit my product page and out of the 300 people just 2 people bought the t-shirt.

I did it just for research purposes to see if this actually works and the way I did it was a really lazy way to do it.

There are a lot of people doing this and scaling their business to 6-figure income each month. However, they are investing a lot of money into ads to make the process faster and also setting up an online store.

If you want to try this out yourself just like I did, I would highly recommend you to check out this post from thehustle.co which inspired me to try this out and write this blog post.
