There’s 2 tried-and-proven ways to consistently create winning products:

Targeting trends
Target a SUPER-HOT niche that doesn’t have many products already.

The easiest way to do this is to create your own passion niche. To do this, you cross two passion niches together. For example: crossing Pugs with coffee. It’s not enough to target one niche with PoD – you need to have a clever twist to your designs. And this is what crossing two passion niches helps you achieve. Having products that speak to customers and embody THEM in a unique way that they haven’t seen before is what motivates them to BUY.


Use Shutterstock to look exclusively for illustrations (these usually look the best when printed on t-shirts). Once you’ve set that, type in one passion niche e.g. Pug Dog.

It can be quite difficult to cross two niches together at once, so here’s a pro tip: look up just ONE passion niche and scroll through the art people have already made and use THAT as inspiration. Using this technique, Sarah found a cross niche of Pugs and Unicorns.

Next, you need to make sure the cross-niche is in demand. To do this, use Facebook’s ad targeting tool and see whether your cross niche falls within an audience of 100,000-500,000 people. Example: Target both keywords “Pug” AND “Coffee” and see how broad the audience is. If it falls under this range, there is enough demand to create a store out of.


After you’ve found a cross-passion niche design that have good potential to test and sell, you’ll want to add them to your store. In this tutorial, we used Printful, which is free.

Here are the step-by-step instructions to do this:

Step 1: Download Printful from the Shopify App Store and click “Get”. Once loaded, click the “Install App” button and create an account.

Step 2: Click the “Add product” button. Select the option “Choose File” and test it using a FREE sample image as shown in the video. You don’t want to go and buy a design, only to find that it looks terrible on a shirt!

Step 3: Continue by clicking on the “Proceed to mock-ups” button and double check that ALL elements of the design – especially text – are visible and not too small. Then click the “proceed to description” button.

Step 4: On the next page, you can update the text that’ll appear on your product listing for it. You can change the title, description and whatever else you like. When done, click the “proceed to pricing” button.

Step 5: Here, you have to two options. 1) Set each individual price for each shirt. Or 2) if you’re too lazy, you can add whatever profit margin you want on top of it – e.g. 50% profit to each sale. Whichever option you pick, click Product Collections and select the right one. To finish off, click submit to store.


When a customer actually comes in and orders it, we need to be set up to pay Printful for the order. Here’s how to do this:

Step 6: On the Printful dashboard, click the “billing” button. Next, click the “Add Payment Method” button, and then select the “Save Payment Method” button. After this loads, type in your credit card number and give your billing address.

Step 7: And once you’ve done that, scroll down and click Save Payment Method, and then just be a little more patient again and let Printful load. Once it has, your payment method is all set.


This helps to build a real, actual brand for your store and encourage repeat customers!

Step 8: In the settings page inside the Printful app, select “Packing Slip” from the menu. Next, click “Select Image to Upload”. Find your store logo image file and open it. After a few seconds, when completely loaded – click “Save”.

But remember – if you want to build a brand and have repeat, happy customers, then it’s important that you send them an awesome product. Here are some tips to do that.

#1: Upload an HD image for so that your customers will love their shirt.

#2: Avoid pictures that have backgrounds

#3: Remember, you can print on MORE than just shirts!

Did you know that you can print onto all SORTS of products? Wine glasses, blankets, clocks, even SHOWER CURTAINS! It’s not just t-shirts that sell well with Print on Demand – so don’t be afraid to get creative!

#4: Avoid getting sued and buy the RIGHT image license

DON’T FORGET: You can’t just use the standard image license when purchasing images on Shutterstock to resell by printing them on products. Purchase the ENHANCED image license.


  1. Just a heads up: I have had a lot of people leave comments accusing me of recommending that people steal artwork. Not true! This video teaches you to PURCHASE artwork from artists & buy the commercial rights extended license. I do not promote stealing artwork at all: https://youtu.be/_PqkmmS-Wqw?t=866

  2. What's the best way to drive customers to your store? Do you use Facebook ads?

  3. How is the sales tax handled?

  4. I Love You! you the best in the East & West

  5. Listening to you on 2x speed feels like I'm watching Alvin and the chipmunks

  6. What do you mean "copy and use for yourself?"

  7. your one smart cookie thanks!! for the info

  8. What image liscense do you get if you want to resell? I love your channel because you are so helpful

  9. Thanks for the video, very interesting. Do you advertise your store on social networks?

  10. I get that I have to pay for the enhanced license, but the cheapest one I can find is $200 for 2 images. I really don't want to fork over $200 bucks for a design that I'm not even sure will sell. Are there any other options besides like Fiverr?

  11. You do great videos keep it up

  12. so after you list it do you have to advertise on fb to make the 10k or was it organic?

  13. you are the 4th advice video that talks about the training.. but completely forget to share the LINK to the site that has all the graphic design and product tshirts???? may i see the store?

  14. So, I wanted to know if you actually bought all those images from shutterstock???

  15. it's hilarious that this works

  16. I made some really cool designs but I dont know which t-shirt compagny I should use. Which tshirt compagny (like teespring and printful) has the best quality? Or which one whould you recommend to me? I hope you can help me out.

  17. Can you use Printful with Woocommerce rather than Shopify?

  18. I like that accent where is it from

  19. Greetings! I view this amazingly informative video and received a ton of useful information. The speaker went out of her way to caution viewers to "not" use illegally sourced images. I think some people are not aware that there are free public domain images that can be used without having to buy them. That saddens me because to those of us who have been in the business a long time, this is a most excellent video on Print On Demand. Vinny the Pug @Pugona Rock Club

  20. I just saw this channel, subscribed right away. 🙂
    Yesterday i saw Elon Musk Smoking Weed T-Shirt that instantly made me buy it. This is an idea. 😀

  21. Hi Sarah, how much did you spend on ad spending to get $10,000 month? Is $10,000 gross or net?

  22. I love your videos. They are very informative. They have convinced me to start my own online store. I'm going to try both print on demand (probably first and mainly) as well as dropshipping.

    One thing though. You mention using shutterstock to get good designs, and you are right, there are a TON of really nice designs and they are very cheap…cheat that is, unless you need to buy the enhanced license…which you recommend, and truthfully you need for a print on demand store or a dropshipping store. The enhanced license is very expensive coming in at about $100 per image …if you buy a 5 image pack…at $498US for the 5 image pack!

    So, testing out a product with an image that cost you $100US can be a bit daunting. Am I missing something?

  23. everyone says this is easy………is it really

  24. Amazon Merch, Shopify, eBay, Etsy…which is best for POD? Thanks!

  25. Hi! I notice you said that the pug with the brown background wasn't good because the background would adversely affect the t-shirt presentation and imaging. Why can't you/don't you just take the image from Shutterstock–after purchasing the Enhanced Rights–and then go to Adobe Illustrator and remove that background layer… making the image just the dog and writing (etc.); then there would have been no problem at all (with that potential design).

    Unless, of course, you can't remove layers from a Shutterstock purchase–though I'm pretty sure you can do just that on on Illustrator?

    Keep up the great and informative work!

  27. I actually followed this tutorial step by step and want to start such a business but I found shutter-stock images to be too expensive! especially with the enhanced licenses! and to use those you actually have to subscribe to one of their plans!

  28. I want to ask about shutterstock license. So you are saying that if I want to use an image for Print On-Demand I need to purchase Enhanced license?

    Because if I understood correctly, then for e.g. if I want 5 images the price will be about $500. If 2 images – $200.
    Shutterstock is really not cheap with Standard License, but with Enhanced… $100 for 1 image :/
