About This Class

Welcome to this crash course on creating one of the most profitable t-shirt businesses it is possible to make, using Printful. I am designer Sir Douglas Fresh, and I have opened at least a dozen types of T-shirt shops in the past three years, selling thousands of shirts around the world. This is one business model I that I love, and the sublimation products are top-notch. I will guide you through the entire process from start to finish of getting your website online, all you need beforehand is a purchased domain and hosting account.

Here is exactly what we will do:

Install Wordpress

Install Woocommerce

Select Woocommerce compatible theme

Integrate Woocommerce with Printful

Upload 5 pieces of art

Create 5 Sublimation Products for each piece of art, socks and shirts, 25 total

And all in under an hour!! I filmed this entire course in one 42 minute take!!

I picked out the method which I think is the easiest, most profitable, and most professional way to create your T-shirt business. We will be using Wordpress with Woocommerce, and Printful to print and ship products.

Remember, this is a crash course. We do not stop or hold hands along the way. We are getting the website up as quickly as possible. It took me 42 minutes to go from a blank domain to a live shop with 25 products that is ready to take orders. I know with some enthusiasm you will be able to launch a shop in under an hour as well!!!!!

My Qualifications and Works

Business Qualifications

I have always been fascinated with business and marketing, and made this my academic pursuit. While attending Frostburg State University for business with a concentration in marketing, I started a successful t-shirt design business. After graduating FSU with high honors in 2014, I started an LLC for my current web project, the Current X Change. I am particularly interested in branding and online marketing, and hope to share my knowledge with hungry entrepreneurs worldwide.

Design Career

I am an active graphic designer with a variety of skills and disciplines. Besides designing vector art for my t-shirt designs, I do photomanipulations in photoshop, and create fractal art using algorithmic software. I sell designs on t-shirts, stickers, canvas, leggings, and a variety of other products. Over the past two years I have sold over 5,000 products made with my designs, without spending a dime on advertising.

Web Work

As a high school sophmore, I developed a social network called Myhs[.]us (now retired). I learned PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, and CSS from books, and became quickly obsessed with the web. As a senior in high school, I developed Blurba[.]com (also retired), a site that used AJAX, allowing all interactions to take place in real time without refreshing the browser. Currently, I run a handful of sites related to my art, and am working on a platform called the Current X Change that will allow users to share and sell their digital art. While I don't teach any courses on web development, my experience in web development gives me a more in-depth understanding of online marketing.
