How To Start A Print On Demand Business With NO MONEY - Printful

hey everyone i'm tatiana today you're
going to discover how you can build an
ecommerce business with no money that's
right zero dollar inventory budget we're
toking about print on demand drop
shipping where you can sell things like
sweatshirts hats socks iphone cases
a whole bunch of different kinds of
merch on your website without ever
having to source a thing without ever
having to speak to a manufacturer place
an inventory order or fulfill orders
yourself so if you want to build an
online business and you're limited in
your budget and how much you can invest
into this business then stay tuned this
video is going to be perfect for you
stik with me all the way through to the
end because i'm going to share with you
exactly how you can start a print on
demand drop shipping business today so
why is print on demand so intriguing
well by far the greatest advantage is
that there's no upfront inventory
investment required you really don't
have to budget for inventory and i know
that this is a big barrier of entry for
many people who want to start amazon fba
private label businesses they know that
they have to invest in inventory upfront
we're toking thousands of dollars and
they just don't have that money
and also it's more risky because you're
paying for that inventory up front with
the hopes that you will have the ability
to sell it for a profit in the future
and so with print-on-demand drop
shipping you eliminate both of those
barriers of entry number one again you
don't have to budget for inventory
upfront if you have money to invest in
your business great use that towards
marketing
sending traffic to your store and number
two it's a really low risk business
because you're only going to be paying
for the inventory after the customer
pays for it so there's no risk of having
dead inventory
that you are no longer able to sell for
whatever reason so it's definitely a
great model it's actually something that
i did years ago
i started a separate website where i was
selling merchandise and it complemented
my existing private label brand
and the merchandise i was selling was
just inspirational t-shirts
i have one here that i would wear
this one we used to call the people in
our community lux dolls this one's a
smart strong kind luck stall but i had
other inspirational shirts like just
different scenes different quotes
different affirmations and so i would
have a hundreds of designs on my website
and of course i didn't have inventory i
would just make a purchase make an order
after someone would place an order via
the website and so i sold these t-shirts
i also sort sold i think
tank tops and even babies onesies and
different outfits like that
i also helped stefan set up a store
which i think he still has and he still
sells products on it where he sells
t-shirts and his t-shirts are also
inspirational they're in alignment with
his brand project life mastery and these
shirts here i designed the logo and
these shirts we
we use for our mastermind events and
such i've been doing this business
myself for a number of years i don't do
it anymore but it's definitely easy to
set up because you just have to set up
your own website and just send traffic
to it that's it so it doesn't take much
effort on your part to get started so
how does all of this come together well
my recommendation and today's video
sponsor is printful printful is a white
label drop shipping company they are
completely free to use they can ship
products worldwide because they have
fulfillment centers worldwide they can
print embroider and engrave on over 303
premium quality products and they can
connect with 20 marketplaces
so that you can connect printful with
shopify you can connect it with wix
whatever platform you choose to set up
your website on they can likely connect
to it i've been using printful for a
number of years that store that i
referenced earlier my merch store that
was connected with printful stefan's
store is still connected with printful
so i'm definitely a customer of theirs i
have personal experience and it's always
been great the quality of the products
is fantastik the two shirts i showed you
were printed with printful and i want to
show you i just placed a new order and i
want to just do a little unboxing with
you just to show you a few other
products that i ordered
so i ordered this sweatshirt
okay
open it together
oh it's so soft i was not expecting it
to be this soft
it's in heather oate
wow this is like a blanket
and i had added this
this is an embroidered
design
it says be kind
and so this is a sweatshirt that i could
sell on my own website you could sell on
your own website it came in a variety of
different sizes different colors and you
can add whatever kind of design you want
to it so i added this cute little
rainbow that says be kind you can do
whatever you want i'm going to put it on
see how it looks
in just a sec the other thing that i
ordered was this hat
so
this is kind of like a jean hat
and again it says be kind
very nice quality very cute and on the
back i actually put my logo and then i
also got these cute little blue shorts
that also have the same logo on the back
of the shorts
and they're kind of like the shorts that
i'm wearing right now
which are cycling shorts
so let's try this on as well this is
super comfy it's super cute
it is a bit big for me i got a medium
i'm probably more like a small extra
small but i do like my sweaters baggy i
feel like
that's the way
it feels the best meant to be cozy this
feels like i'm wearing a blanket right
now so super cute
so these are just examples of some
things that i could sell in my store you
could sell in your store and you can add
whatever kind of embroidery engravement
or print on your t-shirt your sweatshirt
whatever it is that you wish to sell so
now what i'm going to do is i'm going to
hop behind my computer and i want to
show you how i made these how easy it
was how easy it was to add the designs
and customize it and place the order all
right guys so i'm here on printful's
website i just want to show you kind of
the the front of their website first
before we get into the back end
just a few reasons why i really like
printful number one is the built-in
design maker which i'm going to show you
guys in a second number two is that
there's no order minimums so you can see
here that you can start selling for your
e-commerce store or you can even place
an order for yourself so if for example
you've got like a bachelorette party and
you want to get some custom shirts
designed you can you can do that through
printful or if it's your dad's birthday
and you want to make him a silly hat
you can do that through printful because
you can place one order as little as one
item or you can have hundreds so you can
also use printful for personal use as
well which i have done in the past
makes for great unique personalized
gifts over here you can see that you can
sell with print on demand order for
yourself or store your own products so
use warehousing fulfillment services to
store and sell your own products and
promo materials so you can really build
your brand that way they can help with
that a bunch of different products even
face masks duffle bags so their product
catalog extends beyond just clothing
and you can see here that they will link
up with all of the major marketplaces
and over here just a few other things
that stand out local fulfillment so when
customers place an order they get it
relatively quickly because it's
fulfilled locally and also
they have competitive shipping prices
they do have fulfillment centers all
over so you can sell internationally
which is great
they also will help you with allowing
you to have custom
packaging and inserts if you would like
that for your brand
and a bunch of other good stuff so let's
now pop into the back end so you're
going to link this with your
website whether you're selling on
shopify wix whatever it is you're going
to be able to see order information both
on your website and on printful
over here you can see a bunch of orders
you can see how much the total was
the fulfillment the status
how many orders were cancelled returned
etc all right guys so i just want to
show you what my previous store looked
like it was called lux of pearl it's no
longer open the stores closed down but i
still have some of the products synced
here you can see from this end all the
products i had 142 products
and
if i click on a product you can see this
is one of the shirts girls compete woman
power and this shirt comes in a variety
of different sizes and different colors
and i could edit the product here or i
could edit it in shopify show you a few
other designs that i had
actually i can and then i would have the
same
the same quote in a variety of different
styles
we rise by lifting others beautiful
minds inspire others
so etc so you get the idea so you would
see all of your products here inside
your store and you'd be able to see if
any of them are not synced properly they
obviously need to be synced properly to
your store in order for people to place
the order and everything to work very
smoothly
now i'm just going to show you how i
would create a product like this
so how do you create a t-shirt like this
and how do you get the mock-ups that you
can use on your store like this picture
i didn't take this picture myself
printful does this for you they will
render these mock-ups for you and you
can use them on your store and they'll
even have models that you can use so i'm
going to go here to new order i'm going
to select
my
printful store
i'm going to say create order
you can do a sample order
where you would get a discount 20
discount you could do three orders per
month but for this i'm going to use a
create a basic order and if you're going
to do
a get my five dollar off coupon
it's tatiana james five you can get five
dollars off your first order then you'll
want to do a basic order using that
coupon and then you have a whole bunch
of products to choose from so men's
clothing women's clothing kids and youth
hats accessories home living collections
brands
um so you'll have to choose you know
what kind of products you want to do i'm
going to do in this example
a t-shirt
so let's just say i go with or let's do
the hoodie that i did
it's here
you can select what kind of hoodie there
are different prices so
you know if you want maybe one that's
more affordable you could do this one
for 21.95 you want something more
premium more luxury perhaps this one
some of them you can do all over print
so you can have a design the whole
entire hoodie will be able to print
something on the entire hoodie some of
them you can only place a design in
certain locations you're limited with
how much of the product you can print on
so i think the one that i used was it
must have been this one so i'm gonna go
with this
and so you can choose your color you can
sell all these colors on your website or
just one however you like i went with
this color
and you go with the size
and then you can
you can drop your design here so if you
already have a design made
oftentimes people get designs made on
fiverr.com you can hire someone to make
a design for you or you create it
yourself or you can even add text if you
want to just
hello or you want to put your name or
something you can add the text like this
and you can move it around
so it's all done here you can design it
all here on printful
i'm going to add a logo that i found on
google so this is a be kind and then i'm
going to just add the color for the
thread
and then i would just go to continue and
then over here you can see how much it
costs so it's 38 that's my charge and
then how much you're charging the
customer you would put here
and you can see here we have a mock-up
that's been generated so i can use this
image on my website
this is what people will see
and then i can go continue shopping so
then i would just check out and place my
order but for the most part you guys are
going to be
automatikally receiving the order
information from your shopify store it's
going to automatikally send it to your
printful and printful will automatikally
fulfill those orders for you uh so you
won't have to input this information
this info this will all be done for you
thus they're using ai tiknology to do
all this all right and then i just want
to show you how you can create a mock-up
really easily so over here on the left
you'll click on generate files
you can also save the template
and then you're going to select what
kind of mock-ups do you want are you
going to be selling men's women's you
can choose if you want these images
they also have the flat mock-ups they
have it on the hanger and if you have
like a custom product tag then you might
want to show that in the mock-up so i'm
just going to select these two and it
comes in all the different
color variations
and then i'm just going to hit on jpeg
or png jpeg is going to allow the store
to load faster and then generate files
and then that's going to allow me to
download them to my computer save them
to my computer and then upload them to
my website and that is exactly how you
get the images for your product listings
on your website so i'm going to open it
here and here we go so i have all of
these images now
that i'm allowed to use
in the two different colors
there you go if you want to start a
print-on-demand store i highly recommend
trying printful i've been using them for
years now i have personal experience
using them and they're very popular very
reputable
so go to tatianajames.com
printful to visit their site and if you
want to place an order try out some
other products
maybe customize play around with adding
your own logo to a shirt or some sort of
quote to a t-shirt
