Have you ever been sitting around with your friends doing a whole lot of nothing, when suddenly one of you comes up with a fantastic idea for a t-shirt? Now it is easier than ever to turn that scheme into a business venture by logging on to your computer. At Uberprints, they have dozens of styles for men, women, kids, and even pets. With this revolutionary service, anyone can start marketing their own clothing line in less than a week.
Step 1. Invent an original design.
It all starts with an idea for a t-shirt or other item. Even if you have no graphic design skills whatsoever, Uberprints makes it easy. They have thousands of pieces of clipart to choose from that you can incorporate into your composition. You can also upload your own image, wherever you get it, and Uberprints program automatically scans it and adjusts for coloring. Just don’t use any celebrity images or logos without their permission -- because they will sue you!
Step 2. Create an account at Uberprints.
If you don't already have an account at Uberprints this is really the way to go. This is especially true for people that intend to make regular orders over an extended period of time. That way you won’t have to upload your design every time you place an order. Once you have your own account, you will be entitled to special benefits like promotional coupons and discounts. You can also save your designs for later and share them with your friends via social media.
Step 3. Select a style of clothing.
Ideally your design has a target demographic. There is an article of clothing for everyone at Uberprints and you should pick accordingly. There is of course the plain cotton tee for men, women, and children. But maybe you want to switch it up with some long sleeves, tank tops, polos, loungewear, hats, or sweatshirts. For example, a product aimed at the snowboarding enthusiast would undoubtedly be better for winter wear.
Step 4. Place your order.
Once you have selected the coolest possible item of clothing to bear your picture, upload it into the Uberprints program. Uberprints automatically adjusts for color, and removes the white in the background because it gets in the way of the printing process. You can also adjust the colors manually if you so desire. If you are have the items digitally printed, there is no minimum for your order. Those who desire authentic screenprinting must buy at least 12 of each item. Don't forget to check for a coupon code!
Step 5. Post it on an eCommerce site.
Once your order finally arrives to your home or place of business, it is time for the fun part. Making money! There are a variety of awesome eCommerce sites online from which to choose. Websites like Etsy or Big Cartel make it easy for indie artists to sell their creations to the public. You are also free to use larger resellers such as Amazon or eBay. You may even want to build your own simple website from which to promote your online storefront.
