Print on Demand Guide


Let me start with some of my favorite tools, sites, and resources I use to make my print on demand shops literally EXPLODE in sales over night. 


Design and Creation
Printify Print on demand Guide

Canva: Begin your creative journey with Canva's user-friendly design platform. Customize templates, experiment with colors and typography, and craft unique designs that resonate with your target audience. Start a design from a blank canvas and bring your vision to life or use the endless free templates and styles canva has to give you some guidance.  I use Canva for EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING. Canva is an essential for any business on any platform of any kind in my opinion.

Mockups: Display your designs on real-life products using mockups. This helps you showcase your creations and gives customers a preview of what they can expect. You want your mockups to reflect your shop and go with your product. But its more than that, you need size charts and infographics for your products so your customer can make an educated purchase and know what to expect from the product they are buying. I use these size charts because all of them come from Printifys information and  they all match each other and flow with my store.

Store Setup

Printify: Seamlessly integrate with Printify, a leading print-on-demand provider. Access a wide range of products, from apparel to home decor, and have them printed and shipped to your customers on-demand. Printify has a few different plan options and is the most user friendly and customer supportive platform I have used since starting my online shops.

Shopify: Build your online store with Shopify, a the customizations are endless. With its user-friendly interface and customizable themes, you'll have a professional storefront up and running in no time. There are many must have Apps and add ons to Shopify which I will get into in a later blog but my favorite Shopify App is Debutify. This is a great platform if you want to stand out away from an Etsy like platform and have a website of your own that you can customize.

Stan Store: Optimize your links using the Stan Store. This is the perfect landing page for your top products, or blogs, or a little more simpler (but still custom) place drive traffic to.

Marketing and Branding

Tailwind: Boost your social media strategy with Tailwind, a scheduling tool for platforms like Instagram and Pinterest. Tailwind will ghost write your captions with SEO optimization for your target audience, they will create pin templates with your branding colors or content, and then you can schedule multiple pins to multiple boards and different times. Tailwind impresses me almost every time I log in because there is always some else I learn that it offers or does to help me market my products.

Fiverr: Outsource tasks such as logo design, virtual assistant tasks, ghost writing, or social media management through Fiverr. This marketplace connects you with freelancers who can help you establish a strong brand identity. They have independent freelancers who can do anything from small tasks to help you build your website so you want to make sure to explore Fivver.


Everbee: Enhance customer engagement using Everbee. This customer feedback and engagement platform helps you gather insights and build a loyal customer base. Everbee helps you research your competition to see what is selling and what is not working. Everbee shows Etsy keywords data and offers many analytics to help you maximize engagement and sales on your items.


Embarking on a print-on-demand journey is an exciting endeavor that allows you to turn your creative passion into a thriving business. By utilizing the must-have resources I have mentioned (and MANY more provided in the Printify Guide) you'll be equipped with the tools needed to design, market, and manage your online store successfully. Remember, consistency and dedication are key to building a lasting brand presence in the print-on-demand world.
