Hi there, welcome to Tshirthelpdesk.com
My name is Gary. I have been working as a brand graphic designer for 20 years now, and here I am to share my wealth of knowledge with you. I teach people how to design, market, and promote their t-shirt business.
In this blog, I am going to discuss how you can increase your t-shirt sales without making any changes to your t-shirt designs.
Now, A way that you can boost your sales without having to change your designs or doing a lot of crazy stuff is to change how your t-shirts are displayed on your website.
Right now, you may be showing only the t-shirts by themselves, or you may just be showing the design.
When you show your t-shirt on a model, it takes it to another level because people can see a person wearing the shirt.
When the model looks good, then they think, “Hey! I want to look cool as well, and if I wear this t-shirt, then I would look as cool as this person.
But hey! Whether it is the truth or not, that’s not the case here. After all, it’s all about making t-shirt sales.
Now, to find models, you can go to an agency or, you can go to a place like Model Mayhem.
Or, you can go to Instagram and look for influencers and stuff like that. But trust me, if you do any of these, then it’s a good possibility that they are going to charge you, and it is probably not going to be cheap at all!
The next thing that you can do is to use your friends. Now, the question is: Do you have friends who are model material?
The thing here is that for t-shirts, you don’t need a supermodel. But, they should be attractive, and they should reflect your core target audience.
So, do you have friends that are attractive, and are they going to look like t-shirt models?
Also, one more thing that you’re going to need is to do is hire a professional photographer, which means that you have to spend more money, unless you are a photographer yourself.
Now guys, just because you have a camera phone or a digital camera does not mean that you are a photographer, because you may not be able to get the professional look that a professional photographer can provide.
You might be thinking that it’s all expensive, but, hold on, there’s a solution for you here, keep reading!
This is my Tshirthelpdesk Shopify theme, and this is an online store where I educate people on how to start their own t-shirt business.
Now, this looks cool, and there is nothing wrong with it!
Let me show you something that can add a little more life to whatever you already have in your store.
So, this is Placeit.net, and this thing is going to change your life. Here you can mock up so different things if you are into web marketing and e-commerce, then this is the truth right here:
Go to the “Mock Ups” tab, and select “T-shirt Mockups:
As you can see, there are so many different things you can do, which includes featuring models, t-shirt folds, and you can have the t-shirt laid out.
It’s astonishing to know the number of things that you can do, like having different models of various racial backgrounds, such as Black models, Asian models, Latino models, LGBT, and if you can name it, then you have it!
So, let me go to the Black model section, and you can see I have a lot of options here:
But I am going to choose this one, and I will click on this:
Here, you can change the background color and the shirt color. And, I am going to choose this light white color for the background here:
Now, I am going to change the shirt color, and I am going to choose “black”:
On the next step, I am going to upload my artwork by clicking on the “Upload Image” button:
I will navigate and select my artwork here. I will make some changes here for the position and click on the crop:
Look at this, it looks like he is wearing this. You can see how they have made it so that it has ripples, folds and it looks like he is actually wearing this!
I mean, how awesome is this?!
Now we are going to go up here and click on the “Download” button:
Alright guys! So, I have downloaded it and uploaded the image to my Shopify store. Look at how good it looks, and it appears like a real person where this guy has the character and personality.
This is what we are working with right now, and this is how it looks afterward:
This is something that your audience can relate to, as they can see themselves so that they can see how they will look, when they will wear it!
It is so powerful, and that’s why I wanted to show you this. So, make sure that you check out Placeit.net for doing such amazing things.
Now, we have discussed the t-shirt sales and now, I want to discuss something about the t-shirt industry and its future opportunities.
So, do you know that the t-shirt business is a 180 billion-dollar industry?
Every year there are around 3 billion t-shirts sold worldwide!
One more thing that you should know is that unlike other industries such as Hollywood, gaming, app development, real estate, and telecommunications, the bar of entry in the t-shirt industry is relatively low.
A t-shirt business is something that you can start over a weekend, and why would you want to start a t-shirt business or any other type of business these days?
One reason is that the job market is not very stable, because of artificial intelligence and inflation, so a lot of jobs are going to be lost.
Also, these jobs are not going to be outsourced to the people of other countries, but instead, they’ll be given to computers and robots.
Soon, you won’t be able to blame a senator, congressman, or even the President. You can’t blame anybody overseas, because this is just what the corporations are going to do.
So, not only is the job market going to become much more difficult to navigate, but you may also lose the lousy job that you would be doing right now, or you can even love your job, but you still could run the risk of losing it.
Therefore, something that you can do is to start a side hustle as a little insurance against the very uncertain economy.
A few years back, I wrote a book that changed lives, which is titled: Start A T-Shirt Business Or Die Trying! This is the ultimate guide to living your dreams and quitting your lousy job.
Well guys, I have decided to take this book to new heights, which refers to the ‘Start A Business Or Die Trying’ master course.
It is a detailed step-by-step instructional course. It’s like a coach that walks you through the entire process, and a coach that can not only help you set up a t-shirt business but it can help you to navigate through this very uncertain economy.
And, the best way to tackle an uncertain economy is to build an economy of your own.
I will show you how to start a t-shirt business from home and set up your website.
Here are some of the things that I will teach you:

Also, I will add my Photoshop and Illustrator tutorials with this as well.
I will quote once again that the t-shirt business is a $180 billion industry, and why you should get a cut of that money.
I am even going to show the ways to get funding for your t-shirt business. That’s right, I am talking about the money that’s used to start your t-shirt business online.
