Selling custom printed t-shirts and merchandise online through Merch by Amazon and Print on Demand requires an understanding of a few different things such as how to find good markets, niches, and of course ideas, but none are as important as having great designs that your target market can connect with. This is where ThreadBasket excels! They’re great at creating designs that actually sell.
What is ThreadBasket?
ThreadBasket is a high quality, affordable, and professional t-shirt design marketplace that you can visit to purchase well thought out, researched, and professionally crafted designs weekly for Merch by Amazon and any Print on Demand platform at an affordable price. ThreadBasket has several unique features that really set them apart from the competition that we’ll cover in more detail below.
Niche & Product Idea Research
Christian and Felix, the Co-Founders of ThreadBasket.com are both proven sellers in the Print on Demand space with a track record of success. They understand how to find winning niches and product ideas that have a high chance of selling before they ever create them. They use the suite of tools from Merch Titans to help them find good ideas and niches, fast.
When they find good ideas, they send them over to their vetted team of professional designers that then turn their data backed ideas into high quality designs for the ThreadBasket marketplace.
Their strategy is to go after niches and product ideas that are proven to sell on a regular basis, but don’t have too many sales so that they fly below most people’s radars. I like to refer to this as the “sweet spot”. The goal here is to find a niche market that has good demand, but low competition. It can take a long time to figure out how to effectively do this, but with ThreadBasket, the heavy lifting is already done for you and you can purchase ready made designs that have already been thoroughly researched.
Trademark Check & Design Safety
The status on Trademarks is consistently changing. The team over at ThreadBasket always checks the trademark status on each design before they create them. They also check all major marketplaces to see what exists in the space. If anything falls through the cracks they’re more than willing to refund and compensate generously.
The designs created by ThreadBasket are always of high quality, and they have proven that they can consistently create stunning original artwork. They review each design created by their team of professional designers to insure they are up to their standards and fully prepared for their customers and marketplace.
Let’s cover the basics of what ThreadBasket offers:
Roughly 300 unique designs are released into the ThreadBasket marketplace each week, and they’re spread out over 3 different days (Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday).
It’s first come, first serve… About 60% of the designs are sold within 1 hour of being released, and that’s for good reason… It takes a lot of work, expertise, and knowledge to find good niches, ideas, and of course professional designers to bring the ideas to life.
Every design on ThreadBasket is only sold once… They remain visible to other ThreadBasket users for 24 hours so that people can see what was missed, and then they’re taken down from the marketplace forever.
If you purchase a design from ThreadBasket the licensing rights are transferred from the designer to you, and you can do whatever you like with the design.
If you’re looking to increase your sales for Merch by Amazon, or any Print on Demand platform really, ThreadBasket is a great place to start.
You don’t have to worry about hiring a team of designers or learn how to find good niches and ideas right away. You can test the market with designs from ThreadBasket first, and if successful, purchase more designs, grow a new passive income stream, and eventually learn the full process yourself once it has proven to work for you.
Now that we’ve covered the basics. Let me show you what I personally like about ThreadBasket.
Thread Basket Overview.
As stated earlier you need a membership for ThreadBasket in order to gain access to their design marketplace. One of the primary reasons for this is to deter copycats, Overall, it’s a good model that works, and it allows them to focus on creating and providing high quality designs consistently.
Once you’re inside ThreadBasket you’ll be presented with a large marketplace of designs. This marketplace is updated 3 times a week with fresh designs. You can sort them by standard, premium, or bundled designs as shown below.
If you come across a design you like, you can click on it, and you’ll be present with the option to add it to cart and purchase it. With each purchase you are given the base design, you acquire all design rights, you’re given the vector file for the design, and you can even purchase carefully researched meta tags for each design which are quite valuable for most Print on Demand platforms such as RedBubble, Spreadshirt, and others.
When you purchase a design, it will no longer be available to anyone else. You acquire all rights to the design. Every design you purchase will be listed on the “Purchases” page located in the menu as you can see below.
You can click on the purchased design and select various different file formats that are optimized for different platforms such as Merch by Amazon (t-shirts and hoodies), Society 6, and more. These basic formats will work for practically any Print on Demand platform, and if they do not, ThreadBasket can add any format you ask for very quickly.
Another great feature that ThreadBasket has is that they give you the ability to “colorize” your design before you download them.
The colorize feature is only available on designs with 3 colors or less. The simplicity and ease of use of this feature is amazing because now you can purchase one design and turn it into 2-6+ t-shirts that you can place on Amazon and other POD platforms in various different colors.
They also provide an authenticity certificate that you can use to prove that you own the rights to each design you purchase via a downloadable PDF file or a direct link to a certificate hosted on their server. This feature is particularly useful for people looking to expand into Print on Demand platforms such as Spreadshirt as they have been cracking down on people who simply copy and upload stuff from Pixabay and other stock websites.
As you can see, ThreadBasket offers a great service that allows you to actually view your designs before you purchase them, unlike most competitors in the space… In conclusion you get to choose what designs you like, whenever you like, at an affordable price.
Let’s face the facts. If you’re involved in Merch by Amazon or Print on Demand, and you’re trying to increase your sales and overall profits, you can’t go wrong experimenting with designs from ThreadBasket.com because they’re thoroughly researched, backed by data, and designed by people that know what it takes to be successful in this space.
Think about it this way… All it takes is for you to receive 2-4 sales on one ThreadBasket design in order for it to pay for itself. After that, you’re going to profit for months, and in most cases even years to come on a single design.
