Unfortunately, this isn't as simple as it’s made out to look and it relies heavily on how experienced you are at advertising - not designing or selling! You just need to jump on the Teespring forum to see that they are all suffering from unsuccessful campaigns. Mix this in with very low profit margins and it’s actually a formula for failure.
Every man and his dog are currently running Teespring campaigns. All using similar Facebook advertising methods that just saturate the market with millions of people trying to make a quick buck without doing any hard work. As soon as someone learns a new profitable method the whole Teespring community copy it and dilute it in seconds.
You only need to look closer at the finer details of what's involved within traditional drop shipping to understand why the margins are so tight.
The main reason to start your own t-shirt printing company is to print t-shirts and logos for business owners. This combination creates a sustainable business and earns you high levels of profit.

Let's run through a quick example to get a closer idea of what I’m saying.
Traditional drop shipping initially restricts your design capability because you have to use their free design software. Which means you create a mockup that doesn't really stand out.
A men’s premium t-shirt that is printed with your design will typically cost £14.99 - then you need to add shipping which is typically an 8 days lead time and costs £2.99. This gives you a total cost of £17.98 for one t-shirt.
You will need to advertise this t-shirt to try and get it sold, which means you have to add even more margin to try and cover your advertising costs.
Unfortunately you can't add too much margin because you will price yourself out of the market and make your t-shirt impossible to sell against your competition.

So let's say you try and sell your t-shirt for £19.00 and make £1.02 profit. You now need to advertise this t-shirt to get in front of 1000’s of people to make a sale.
Let’s say you spend £50 on Facebook advertising to try and reach 1000’s of people in their news feed. This means you are running a business at a loss before you even start. With £1.02 profit - you will need to sell 50 t-shirts to break even.
Let's add into this equation that you will find it very challenging to get noticed within your advertising because you are using their website platform and mixing in with millions of other designs. Also you are being forced to use their free design software that limits your creativity and makes your design look the same as everyone else on the platform.
Hopefully you can see that this drop shipping model is fundamentally flawed because all of your profit margin is taken away by the drop shipping model, forcing you to sell huge volumes to try and make some money!
Even though the t-shirt industry is a $9 Billion industry, this doesn't mean that money grows on trees. You still need to stand out to get noticed by following current trends, seasons and create eye catching designs.

Once you start using our system instead of this traditional drop shipping model, you will be able to sell more designs, and know exactly what hardware is required to invest in.

You need to make profit on your sales as well, otherwise you will never be able to create a sustainable business. And without profit you won't be able to run effective marketing campaigns.
To build a successful business within the t-shirt printing industry you will need to use specialised software, so as not to be restricted in your designs. You need an effective sales and marketing strategy so you can effectively test your designs and increase your sales. Then you need a drop shipping framework that allows you to make maximum profit on your sales.
You will also need to sell into local businesses because they all need logo printing done and they all are prepared to pay for volume orders. Which means you have two revenue streams running at once. Your t-shirt designs and your business logos will make it so much easier to make a profit and build a sustainable business.
Once you start using our system instead of this traditional drop shipping model, you will be able to sell more designs, and know exactly what hardware is required to invest in. This will allow you to work out your overheads, profit margins and confidently invest in your future and safely launch your own t-shirt printing business.

When you can create any design you want because you know how to use CorelDraw and no longer have any restrictions, you can appeal to a much larger market. It is all about getting your designs in front of as many people as possible via a low cost marketing strategy and being able to make as much profit as you can from every sale.
When you stop giving all of your margin away to the drop shipping middleman and keep it for yourself, you will be able to create a successful business that generates enough profit to become a successful entrepreneur.
This is why the first thing you need to do is stop using the free design software that the drop shipping companies force you to use. Instead you need to use the same software that the industry leaders use. This software is called CorelDraw and will give you the freedom and tools to become an exceptional designer. This is how you are going to stand out and get sales.
Do you want to be the same as the millions of people using drop shipping software or do you want to stand out and outsell them every time? We have created a ‘Software Design Course’ that makes learning CorelDraw easy and fast. We start out with designing your logo so you become familiar with its array of powerful tools. Then we teach you how to make different designs and put them into mockups, so you can start selling straight away.
If CorelDraw isn’t something that you want to invest in right now, we also teach you how to use free graphic design software to quickly get you creating products that can easily be printed through our ‘Dropship Test Packs’. Although there will be some restrictions when using other free software, we can still get you through the process. But once you start making money, it is always a better idea to move over to licenced software that makes life easier and gives you a wider selection of products to sell.
