Selling Merch on Amazon, Redbubble, or Printful can be a rewarding side hustle. Getting started is easy, but getting designs that sell is where the challenge begins. I’m a graphic designer for Penji and I’ve designed easily over 1000+ shirts myself. I’ve had the privilege of designing for some of the most successful Merch sellers (people making easily over $3k/m on commission) and have seen all sorts of whacky and tacky designs. It’s not always obvious why a design sells. Sometimes the simplest designs without any graphics end up being your cash cow for the month. Other times, it’s the ambiguous design with subtle humor that only a small niche audience would understand that sells out (talking to you Area-51 Raid T-shirts).
I decided to put together an Ebook covering 47+ of the strangest designs I’ve done that actually sold pretty well. Needless to say, please don’t copy or mimic any of these designs, as they’re probably already online and being sold. If you are interested in having me (or one of my colleagues) help with designing, give Penj a try and use promo code: SAMUEL to get 25% off your 1st month. I know I know, shameless plug. I work for the company, what do you expect?
Getting T-shirt design ideas faster than the actual design?
