So I sell art and I am having such a hard time trying to figure out the best way to do this. I want to sell hoodies and T-shirt’s but I am a very small business so I cannot just buy a random amount of stock/sizes? I’ve sold a few articles of clothing in the past but it was very limited. I did sell it all tho.
For reference, I already have a website, using Squarespace. I’ve already gone through the trouble of designing it and gone through 2 domains and pay for it monthly, etc. I’m not really trying to set up a whole other red bubble type thing. I also like to be able to control the design and quality of products, and I in general just want everything together on MY site. I thought maybe I could do preorder, but I also hate the idea of having to have my customers wait 3 weeks plus to receive an item, and worry that preorder would discourage purchases (speaking from my personal experience-I like that instant gratification lol). So is there any other way to do it? Or am I being too stubborn?
Also, I am planning on using printful, I’ve used it before and like what they have to offer. However would also like advice for future reference as I screen print shirts, and have to buy all the supplies to make it. I’m just lost as to how I go about figuring out the numbers/how much to produce for stock being such a small brand. I appreciate anyone taking the time to read this and any advice/opinions! Thanks :)
