Side Hustle Idea #4: Redbubble



Double Dipping: Print on Demand

I already posted a write up on Spring and I had to share my thoughts on Redbubble. I love the idea of creating an actual artist page with a profile and cover photo. Under the profile pic, viewers can look at "shop products" or "explore designs."

This platform gives artists a chance to collaborate and explore other artist's creations. Additionally, it's very easy to select which products you want to use and how the designs are going to look on each individual item.

I created a store called Misc Swag Clothing Co. I've kept my designs very simple and I have limited my options to not overwhelm shoppers. I think it's important to keep consistency and keep things simple which is why I haven't added too many items with too many variations.

Artists can create collections so since it's June and Pride month, I created a Pride collection. Additionally, since it's summer and hot out, I created a tank top line. As we move through the year, it's important to stay relevant so artists can release items based on holiday, season or even celebration.

Getting the store up and running was very easy. I would say that the only thing that may take some time is figuring out your niche and designs. I have been able to repurpose a lot of my designs from Spring and I plan on rolling these designs out to Facebook Marketplace and Etsy.

If you have to edit your items, you can go in and do so fairly quickly. In fact, I like there is a feature to do a mass update so if you want to add a new product you can do that by selecting all of your items. You may have to go in each then and reshape and resize the design but the website makes it easy for you to make changes. Each product has an actual model that is wearing your item and there are reviews on the item so shoppers can make an informed decision on what they want to buy. Everything is shipped from the US making the items accessible and there are tags for other items at the bottom a the bottom of the page.

If you are just getting started - here are a list of things I needed in order to have the full shop up and ready to go in less than 2 days.
