Customize Your Products

After you have chosen your preferred item and design, what follows is the all-important part – customizing your product. In the case of the t-shirt, you are provided with the option to design and customize your tee from scratch or browse a list of pre-designed templates. The latter option is of course quite appealing if you want to save some time. However, designing your own product from scratch allows you to be as creative as you want and enables you to include your own branding elements, like a logo, on the finished product.

  1. I recommend going for the nicer fabrics. The 100% cotton tee seems like a good idea, but doesn’t hold up after a couple washes & shrinkage.

  2. I’m interested in selling my 120 products, mostly t shirts some bumper stickers on your site. T-shirts are all text, just don’t know how to get started here, Thank you, Felipe Mercado
