The weather is hot, and that can only mean one thing… it’s time to go outdoors! There are tons of pool parties, BBQs, and road trips ahead; make the most of your t-shirt business by designing rad shirts for these occasions.

Some of the top seller products during the summer months are:

  • T-Shirts – well, of course.
  • Tank Tops – who doesn’t want the perfect tank to pair with denim shorts for the beach or a maxi skirt for a late-night pool party?
  • Crop Tops – this is the one apparel item making a comeback this year; you can actually read more in this other post we made for you on how to style crop tops.
  • Hats – one of the best accessories for summer are hats! From dad hats and snapbacks to trucker hats, there are tons of possibilities!
  • Tote Bags – a must for carrying out your phone, bikini, and sunscreen in style.
  • Beach Towels – custom beach towels, anyone? Yes, please.

What Print on Demand Sites Offer These Apparel Products?

There are lots of print-on-demand sites that allow you to sell your designs online to a larger audience; all you need to do is choose the right marketplace; here are some factors that you should consider when searching for the perfect print-on-demand site:

  • Where they ship – whether your audience is based in America or Europe, you will be able to reach further if you offer your products through an international marketplace.
  • Available products – not all POD sites offer the same products; make sure you check that the ones you want to offer to your audience are available.
  • No need to keep an inventory – this is probably one of the top reasons for choosing to sell t-shirts online; you get to offer a wide variety of sizes, models, and styles to your audience without the cost and effort of keeping such inventory.

To help you find the perfect website for your t-shirt business, we built this POD Sites Directory that allows you to filter all marketplaces by-products, shipping locations, price ranges, and other relevant data points.
