checkbox-thumb-thumb Respond to customer inquiries in a timely and friendly manner. Your reputation for having good customer support and responding quickly could easily earn you more repeat business. Don’t use exclamation points or general sarcasm in your emails.


When I first started this blog – I emailed a store asking for general information on designs and pre-sales (expecting to make a post about the store) and received a negative response back. I still to this day haven’t used the company in my blogging because of this. Here is a small excerpt without naming the store.

All of the new designs are noted with ‘New for 2008!’ in their descriptions.. they’re the ones at the top of the store anyway with the white backgrounds!..

..it would be silly not to have everything up when it’s already up everywhere else!



checkbox-thumb-thumbKeep it simple – Don’t put one hundred links on your home page that lead everywhere else other than purchasing your products. A simple grid based design

that shows all your products on the main page is the best way to earn sales.

The guys at Wooshka

have the right idea. Simple menu, with a simple sidebar – and a homepage that easily shows their products and is easy on the eyes.

Offer a pre-sale on new designs. The guys at Fantastic Bonanza

recently pre-sold three new designs and received steller results .


Here were the points Joe at Fantastic Bonanza

had on his pre-sales

gauge popularity of items before investing in stock

provide customers with the (accurate) impression that they’ll be the first to get your tees

accumulation of capital to fund the printing of the shirts

customer perception of a sale that will expire more concretely than any other sale, because there can be no other pre-order sale on this design ever




Make sure your designs will sell before you put them up for sale.

Putting your future designs up on sites such as Emptees

will give you:

  1. a better perspective on how the shirt will sell
  2. critique from other well developed artist
  3. a chance to find out if there is something similar already on the market
  4. opportunity to develop anticipation for your new design

Case in point Linty Fresh

put up an already printed design only to find out that his work was a “common idea”   If he had tested his design on Emptees first, he might have thought twice about selling the design.

Inspired by an unusual prank (read excerpt below)


In 2006, “an artist” known as “Coup

d’Eclat ” decided to play a game. The goal: to smuggle a doormat adorned with this image into the Whitney Biennial on press day along with a note describing the purpose of their prank, to create “new media art” and “the most publicity friendly work of art ever.”

Here’s a little something I remember about the Kate Moss exposure.
