Yeah, both Redbubble and Teepublic have had their masks available for a few weeks now, my OH's stores have sold quite a few. If you haven't gone through and updated your products to enable the masks, you're definitely losing out.

I have masks up on Teepublic redbubble and have sold some but the profit margin isn't great on them. I'm more excited by Amazon Merch being back. I currently have a trending pop socket and have quadruple the number of sales of my previous best selling month already. I should have enough sales for a tier up next month.

You can up the margins on Redbubble - think ours are at 40/50% and doing well. How are you finding Amazon Merch? I REALLY need to get my wife's stuff up on there!

Just a little question - have read most of the thread so off to investigate GIMP next.
Is it better to start on redbubble etc before approaching Amazon Merch?
Am very much branching out lol, my mum has now mastered matched betting and bless her is beavering away actually making face masks. I wish I was practical like her. But thankfully I did inherit some of her artistic side so looking at this as an option.

I did not realise the process was so easy! I used to design graphics/web templates and sell them when I was 15/16. I'm definitely going to get on this!

How have you all got on with it?

There's a lot of competition with mask designs so I decided to leave the margins as is. If I get a mask that takes off I might bump it up.

I like Amazon Merch although it does have its challenges. Things are not running normally with them yet. They aren't accepting new applications, not all designs are live and you can't upload new designs, edit old ones or get a tier up. Still once they are up and running again they are worth the effort since they have such a massive customer base and they are planning to expand their product selection. They are introducing phone cases next which I'm really looking forward to since I mostly sell popsockets.

GIMP looks daunting to use. Can we use canva instead?
You can use Canva. Affinity designer is good too and it has a free trial and is half price until the end of this month. There's also a phone app called Over which is good that also has a free trial.

Just made a store and put my first design up. I was trying to add it to check out to see how much delivery was but then I press check out it just brings me to an error page?

It can be a good idea to start with Redbubble while you learn the basics since Amazon has an application process and it's currently not accepting applications due to the Coronavirus. Plus if you get rejected you're not meant to reapply although there might be a work around. Start with Redbubble, learn the design guidelines, copywrite rules etc and then when you're ready to apply to Amazon you're more likely to be successful.

I do have a Teepublic store but it's third for me after Amazon and Redbubble. I'm not sure why you can't find your design. I never had that problem.
Do you mean when you click on your storefront there is nothing under the designs tab?

Yeah it’s gone. Feel like it’s been taking down. I’ve emailed them to ask why because I can’t find a reason.

I’ve uploaded another one. I am a bit confused though. If I search for my t-shirt it doesn’t come up, what do I have to do to make it more visible please?

Did you use any tags that might be infringing on copywrite or a trademark? Even if your design isn't infringing if you use the wrong word in your tags that can possibly lead to your design being removed.

What like a celebrity's name?

Yeah, celebrity names, TV shows, films, games etc could get your design flagged and removed. Teepublic and Redbubble both have a lot of fan art, parody and straight up copyright infringing stuff so it can be confusing as to what is allowed. They aren't great at enforcing their copyright system but some words or phrases will get flagged by the system and get your design removed.

Thank you. How is your store going? Do you make much?
