She was lucky to know about the procedures of selling her artworks through these branded products online.
Basically, for the last 2 years, Diana was searching for a job. But the Covid19 pandemic situation didn’t give her any chance of getting a good one. So she was thinking to do an online job from her home. Yet that decision didn’t work out too! She was disappointed as her artworks went rejected by few companies.
This was not her fault, nor the designs were bad. Actually market became too much unstable during the pandemic period and the financial crisis led her to become hopeless indeed.
Suddenly one day, she came to know about these two brands from the online advertisements while she was scrolling the timeline from her social media accounts. She quickly searched in Google about Threadless and Teespring and found out all the information she needed.

How To Create Designing Products in Threadless?
First thing first, you need to create an account under Threadless. Then you need to set up your Artist Shop. Threadless artist shop will be helpful for the people like Diana, who can use Adobe Photoshop, CorelDraw, or Adobe Illustrator nicely.
Here in the artist shop, you will not be given any designing area. So you have to upload your own creations. You need to create them in Photoshop or Illustrator at first, then save those files as JPEG/ PNG and upload them here in the Threadless artist shop.
Normal people have no idea how to create designs in PNG/ JPEG format under Photoshop/ CorelDraw/ Illustrator platform, so Teespring will be a better place for them.
If you are like Diana who knows to create PNG images then the Threadless artist shop will not bother you. Create whatever designs you like, save them in high-resolution format. Approximately anything over 2000 pixels wide and 2000 pixels is tall with 300 dpi suits well in Threadless artist shop.
Upload your artifact to the platform. Give a suitable title. Then choose the apparel types and colors. You can find various options like home accessories, T-shirts (for both men and women), socks, shoes, leggings, duffle bags, backpacks, coffee mugs, posters, stickers, towels, curtains, pillow covers, bedsheets, and more. Select the products intelligently that suit your design. Select all those products which you want to make available at your artist shop. Then hit the create products button.
That’s it; you can publish the products now. You can find them available in your shop. All the items have their own individual prices of course with your profit margin, colors, and sizes. You don’t have to think at all. The shipping cost may vary with the geolocalization of the customers. Threadless gives some promo codes to share with your friends/customers for discounted offers on shipping charges.
How To Create Designing Products in Teespring?
Teespring also has a similar kind of system structure to Threadless. Here you have to open an account first. Then you need to set up your Teespring store. You can make it attractive as you like.
Teespring platform is well suited for both non-designers and designers. Teespring allows you to design your custom product under their website. But you can only write texts, change the fonts and change their colors.
If you want to print the product with some artwork then you have to upload your own creations. Exactly the same process as Threadless. Upload PNG/GIFF/JPEG images with high resolution, close to 1400 X 1400 pixels with 300 dpi will fit nicely.
The difference between Teespring with Threadless is, here you can put your own profit margins. That means you can set different selling prices for different products. It will be a great marketing strategy to set a low price than your competitors as you want to build your online market, in that case, Teespring is better.
In Teespring, you will also get varieties of products like T-shirts (for both men and women), hoodies, socks, shoes, leggings, coffee mugs, posters, stickers, towels, pillow covers, masks, and more. But if you compare the two platforms with product listings then Threadless offers a few more.
Upload your designs, set the selling price, and launch the products. You can see them displaying in your storefront. You will get different links to those different products. Pretty much similar to Threadless.
People can view all the details, if they get satisfied then there is Add to Cart button. The printing, production, and shipping will be taken care of by Teespring; you’ll get your profit with ease.
