10 Steps to Starting Your Print-On-Demand Store

First and foremost, we've got one main objective. When you get to the end of this video series. Our goal for you is that you take your idea and you have an up and running Printful on demand store. We have two ways we're going to get there.



Series Objective


First and foremost, we are going through this entire video series, which is going to be 10 video lessons, step-by-step practical lessons to take you from idea, from concept to launch. In addition to that, we are going to throw in a live webinar Q and A. So that way at the end of this series you'll be able to recap and address any questions. And this Q and A is going to be live with both myself and Printful. So these are how we're going to obtain the main objective here, which is to get you from idea to finished print-on-demand store. And how we're going to do that is starting with the 10 video lessons.

So video lesson number two is Wix 101. So how to create your Wix store. So some, Wix themes, the store design banners, domain names, hosting.

Video Lesson Number 3

So Products 101 we're going to choose what to sell. So planning and researching your niche, what that niche is going to be, what's going to make you unique, what market are you going into? And we've got a few niche options within Printful such as t-shirts, sportswear, home and living, custom jewelry, kids' apparel, stickers and more.

And also some printing techniques that are available to you such as screen printing, direct garment or sublimation. These are a few examples of what we're going to tub cover.
