Printful is an easy to use platform with tons of products that you can add your designs on and sell them, from t-shirts to mugs and iPhone cases. You can view their products list here. They do printing, packaging, and shipping of the products, you only have to worry about selling which I think is amazing. There is no monthly fee, you only pay when you sell something.

WooCommerce is an amazing free plugin that installs on top of the WordPress CMS. It’s an easy way to set up a store on any blog or website with minimal work on your side.

In the tutorial we will go through the backend of our WooCommerce store, setup Astra theme, import a premade theme, and edit it. Astra theme is one of the best  WordPress themes out there, it’s easy to set up and customize. Our paid members have free access to the premium version and all it’s ready-made templates.

Then we will create our own products with our designs in the Printful platform, create the mockups, and import them automatically into the WooCommerce store.

After that, we will play a bit with the Astra theme and customize a few things.

You can preview the Demo Store here.


Resources (for Designious paid members)

Download the Astra theme and Astra Pro plugin.

Enjoy the tutorial, it’s about an hour-long so bear with me, there a few things to go through. If you like there will be a second part where we go deeper into WooCommerce setup to start promoting it and have a great store for our future customers, offering a good buying experience.

      Our Store Setup Service is exactly that, store setup and nothing more, we don’t control the products you want to sell. You can upload any design you want, created by you, from other marketplaces or from our own library. We have created some t-shirt collections here to help our customers with that.

      You don’t need Printful to use our designs, you can print the designs yourself or however you want. At the moment the Online Designer can be used only on our website with our library. We will release soon a new service to have our library on your website.
