Apparently, I’m on a theme right now. Today’s post is about “stuff” aka “Merch”
Two weeks ago I didn’t have any. I had my stickers, as part of my branding efforts and some shirts I’d quickly ordered for Nicole and me to wear to events, and that was it.
Then I had a reader (Shoutout to Shawn Smith!) say he’d love stickers and a shirt. I threw a few of each sticker in the mail but had nothing to offer for shirts. I knew for sure I didn’t want to warehouse shirts at my house and fulfill orders. I mean in a perfect world I’d sell hundreds of shirts a month and it’d be a horrible money-making nightmare, but the reality is likely I’d sell a few and sit on hundreds of shirts for a while. Years likely.
But wait. Print Direct to Garment is the thing. So I began searching.
It didn’t take long to settle on Printify. They let the user select from a wide array of products offered by an equally wide array of vendors around the country/world. You go through, picking the things you’d like to sell (Sorry, no Space Rogues Underwear at the moment) and add them to your site. Easy Peasy.
So, now you can buy all kinds of awesome Space Rogues merchandise! I’m pretty stoked to be able to offer this stuff! I can’t wait for the day I pass someone on the street wearing a badass Space Rogues shirt. What’s really nice is I can offer this cool stuff in the same store I offer direct downloads and signed copies of my books.
What would you like to see in the store?
