Project Description

Start an Online T-Shirt Business

Welcome to your new store! At the end of this course you will have the knowledge to open multiple t-shirt shops online. We have learned about Redbubble, Skreened, Cafepress, Zazzle, Society6, Spreadshirt, Threadless, Teespring, and Printful. It is up to you to choose what sites best fit your needs. Wherever you host your shop, be sure to utilize your shop descriptions and grouping options.

In addition to your store, you should have a solid brand foundation. Here is a list of the things reccommended in the course.

  • Logo in vector format
  • Temple branding documents
  • Some form of style guide
  • Meta information including descriptions and tags
  • Cloud storage solution for images

Upload pictures of your shops and products into the project gallery to inspire those just starting out! Here are some of my shops on the various sites! I hope they inspire you!
