Dropshipping 2021: How My Dropshipping Clothing Brand Works (Through Shopify!)
In this video, Rob from Apparel Success shares how his dropshipping clothing brand works, including all the little details and processes managed by him. He also mentions a sponsor, Design Crowd, who can help with designs.
How it used to work:
Rob used to order blank clothing from suppliers like T-shirtca and HS Apparel, get it printed at a screen printing facility, and then have it shipped to his place where he would organize inventory and fulfill orders.
How it works now:
Rob now gets all his clothing made by a company in Toronto called Avid Apparel. They handle everything from printing to barcoding and bagging, which saves Rob time and money. He then gets everything shipped to his fulfillment center, Lickety Split, who organize and shelve the inventory and fulfill all the orders for his clothing brand. All of this is directly recorded through the Shopify website.
Rob is happy with this new process because he doesn't have to handle all the inventory and shipping himself. He now technically dropships his clothing brand, and his relationship with Lickety Split is like a team, which has helped him focus on his brand and the things he's good at.
Rob's experience with dropshipping his clothing brand has been successful, and he hopes this video provides insight into how others can structure their own clothing brands moving forward.

How I Started a Clothing Brand with $0 in 7 Days
I'm gonna try to start a clothing brand with no money in seven days. I'll be taking you through the entire process from designing to manufacturing to advertising, and at the end of this video, I'll show exactly how much money I make. One of the first things to figure out when starting a clothing brand, or really any kind of business, is the customer. Who is going to buy our clothes? In such a saturated market like clothing, it's very important to niche down and find that specific target audience that you're going to sell to. I think I found a good one - car drifting enthusiasts.
Dream, what do you mean? Car enthusiasts love to share their passion for cars. They talk about them all the time and like showing off their cars. I'm thinking men who would also wear a clothing brand that shares the same passion. To niche down, I've decided to focus on drifting culture. Let's build this brand.
Today is day two, and let me show you what I've come up with. My clothing brand is Drift Club. It's a lifestyle brand that celebrates drifting and its values - aesthetic and legacy. Here are a couple of designs that I made for the clothing. You can see that I'm going with a sleek and minimalist look. I think they look pretty good, so let's get into manufacturing. But how the heck do I manufacture clothes with no money? By using print on demand.
Print on demand is a process where you get a company to print custom products and clothing for you only when the order is made. No upfront payment, no need to hold inventory, and you don't even need to handle packaging and shipping. They do it all for you under your brand. The print on demand service I'll be using is Printful. On their website, you can find a whole bunch of products you can print custom designs on and customize with their design maker tool. You can upload photos, add text, and print on various areas like the back, sleeves, and even the inside label.
Printful actually lets you order samples and even gives you a discount, but the issue is I have no money, so I can't really order samples. Technically, I could just choose a shirt and sell it without ever touching it, but I feel it'd be a bit disingenuous to sell a product that I haven't personally reviewed. So, I think I have an idea. Okay, so I just got in contact with Printful, and they said they're actually going to sponsor this video and send me samples for free. Big shout out to Printful, and link is in the description below if you want to check them out.
Again, I could have just skipped the samples and went straight to selling, but I want to show you guys the whole building a clothing brand process. Let's order those sounds. They've arrived. Here are all of the seven samples I ordered for this clothing brand launch. I want to start with a small collection of just three pieces, so it's focused and doesn't overwhelm the customer with too many choices. I'm now going to review the different blanks and designs with you, and let's see which will make the top three.
I ordered two types of hoodies. The first is the Cotton Heritage M2580. I love the quality and thickness of this hoodie. Seriously feels premium. However, I'm not a big fan of these drawstrings. They're really wide, and the whole look is pretty big. The second hoodie I got is the Hanes P170. This one is a great fit. Love the drawstrings and how its color matches the hoodie. It's a bit thinner compared to the Cotton Heritage, but it's not too thin and still has a good feel to it.
I also ordered two types of t-shirts. The first is the Bella and Canvas 301. Great athletic fit, really soft, a bit thin though. The second t-shirt I got is the Cotton Heritage MC1086, which feels amazing. It's soft, thick, and has a great weight to it. The only thing I dislike is the length, which for tall people shouldn't be a problem, but I'm 5'6, so it's a bit long for me.
Now for the designs. All of these are DTG or directed garment prints, which is the technique that uses a printer to print designs onto the garment. Printful also offers embroidery and all-over printing as well. The printing quality is great, so no problems there. I'm just debating on whether to go with the designs with cars on them or designs with just the brand logo. I'm thinking since it's the first collection, let's keep it clean and simple with just the logo. Maybe later on, I can bring in more images and visuals.
And so we've got our top three. Onto taking some product photos. It's day four today, and we're making our website. To make my website, I'll be using Wix and their 14-day free trial. I'm making sure mine aligns with Drift Club's identity in terms of the color palette, imagery, font, and copy. I actually made a whole in-depth tutorial on how I set up my online store using Wix. If you're interested, check it out in the description below. I'm now adding my products to my Wix site.
What's great with Printful is that it's integrated with a lot of e-commerce platforms like Wix, Shopify, and Squarespace, and that makes it easy to add products to my store and manage orders. And building for the clothes, I'll be using photos I shot during my photo shoot as well as the mock-up photos generated by Printful, which seriously look great and very professional.
Let's talk pricing and numbers. I'm going to be pricing the hoodies at $49.99. It costs $27.90 to print, which means I would make $22.9 profit per sale and have a 44% profit margin. For the t-shirt, I'm going to be pricing it at $29.99. It costs $20.90 to print, which means I would make $9.9 profit per sale and have a 30% profit margin. I will say the t-shirt blank I'm using is a bit more on the expensive side, but I think the quality is just too good not to use. I'm willing to earn less on t-shirts to ensure customer satisfaction. On top of manufacturing costs, there are also shipping fees and taxes. Though the customer typically pays for it, I'm personally going to give free shipping to orders over $35 to the US, UK, or Canada to hopefully incentivize more purchases. Other than that, all labor, storage, and packaging costs are taken care of by Printful.
It's day five. Everything is ready to go. Now, what's the plan for advertising? Because I have zero dollars for ads and only seven days to launch this clothing brand, I'm going to use all of my resources and leverage the following that I have on TikTok to sell these clothes.
I get this all the time - everyone says that I'm DK from Tokyo Drift, and that's because I am. Drift King on TikTok. I am not The Jetson on YouTube. I am Drift King, where I react to drifting videos and fool the internet into thinking I'm in Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift.
Can this baby lens jump with the pot-walking machine? Gonna watch the end to find out, baby.
Okay, one thing I do not like about this guy is that he calls himself the Drift King and he reacts to people drifting. Now, a big portion of my audience kind of disliked me. I'm afraid I have a slight disconnect with my audience that won't translate well into clothing sales. But there's only one way to find out. Let's film some TikToks drifting style, baby.
Oh, my plan is to upload TikToks over the last few days in this challenge. Hopefully, we can make a few sales by tomorrow.
Does DriftKing have merch? I do now! Oh, Drift Club merch is out right now. We got t-shirts, we got hoodies.
It's day six, and I haven't checked my TikTok or sales all day. Let's see how many views my TikTok videos have gone. Oh, we hit a couple of tens of thousands of views. That's pretty good. It's around what I usually get on TikTok, which is great. However, the views aren't the most important number here. The most important number is the number of clothes I've sold, and I've sold zero. Yeah, this is the right number. It's okay. Gotta stay patient. I still have tomorrow, though.
Uh, not gonna lie, I'm feeling a bit nervous. On the top of my head, I can think of two things where I could have improved on or done differently. The first is that I could have made better TikToks. The ones I made are getting views, but I probably could have mentioned the brand values more or featured the clothes better. The second thing, and I think that's probably the main culprit, is that I should have reached out to influencers and other people in the drifting community to get them to wear my clothes and promote them. That's probably the biggest missed opportunity.
But you know what? It's okay. This was a learning experience, and I'm glad I did it. It's not easy starting a clothing brand with no money, but it's definitely doable. And who knows? Maybe in the future, I'll try it again and do better. But for now, I'm proud of what I accomplished, and I hope you learned something from watching this video. Thanks for tuning in.
