The notes and resources mentioned in this video:

1:30 What is Made To Order?: Also known as print on demand or “dropshipping” this process allows you to focus on the design and marketing of your brand, and you only pay for the products once they are sold. It’s a great way to start a clothing line as it costs you no money up front. Best of all a fulfillment partner such as Apliiq does all the shipping for you.

3:11 Direct To Garment Printing: Also known as DTG, is a method of printing that allows you to print in full color, without the extra cost normally associated with screen printing. DTG allows you to create multiple samples and products quickly and efficiently.

6:12 Creating Branded Labels: labeling apparel allows you to fully customize your blank t-shirts, so your customers will think you made it all from scratch. Labeling allows you to fully brand your apparel line and make it your own.

8:05 What is Embroidery?: Embroidery give your product an enhanced touch and is great for fleece, hats, jackets and much more. The key to embroidery is in creating sharp vector graphics as the design is created by stitching thread through a garment.

9:27 Fulfillment/ Shipping: A fulfillment company does all the shipping for you. They are responsible for ensuring that your orders are shipped to your customers, all while ensuring that your customers never know someone else handled it for you. They provide poly bags to protect your products, shipping labels and packing slips.

13:20 Collection Planning: The key to starting a clothing line with $0 dollars is to design a brand for eCommerce. Selling directly to your customers allow you to launch with as little as 3-5 designs vs having to create multiple styles, line sheets and samples to sell to retailers.

16:00 Design Programs: Photoshop and Illustrator is the software you will need.

Get access to all design programs:

16:56: Working With Designers: If designing is not your strong suit, consider working with graphic artists on Design Crowd and Fiverr as well as Upwork.




17:48 Setting Up Your ecommerce store: Shopify allows you to integrate with major Print on Demand Platforms such as Apliiq. The key to Shopify is how easy it is to use if you’re a novice to building your own website.

25:20: Social Media: the best way to start marketing your products is to have a presence on social media platforms. Just as important is setting up a landing page that allows you to collect customers emails.

27:38: Collecting Sales: to collect payment for your products, you can use Shopify’s mobile payment platform, Paypal or SquareUp

29:03 When to Legitimize Your Business: The best time to set up your LLC, DBA or Corporation will depend on you. I recommend you speak with an attorney or your CPA to decide on your personal situation.
