If you are looking for a large niche to create designs then look no further than the gaming niche. It’s estimated that there are 2.7 billion players at this moment. Yes, you read that right, billions.
People love games and now more than ever they stay at home and need to fill their time with entertainment. And among the plethora of options available, gaming is one of the best ways to keep themselves hooked to pass the time.
With that in mind t-shirt designs for the gaming niche sounds like a good idea to tap into. Let’s explore further and see where this takes us.
Currently, the top 5 most played online games are Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), Fortnite, Apex Legends, League of Legends, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO).
These five games alone, combined, have more than 1 billion users, and it is a potentially untapped niche.
The next five most popular games are HearthStone, Minecraft, DOTA2, The Division 2, and The Splatoon 2, all with another ~130 million users on top of the other. But let’s stick with the first five.
The caveat here is that all the titles are copyrighted, and you should avoid using their specific names in any of your merch.
However, you can (and should) create t-shirts with funny quotes, quips, and memes from those specific games. Here’s an example: a quote like “I drop at Pochinki” is about PUBG without saying specifically that it is about PUBG.
In short, the message itself should speak the slang of gamers. Learning the slang and what the message says is a great way to gain a new insight on a growing niche with very big potential.
To come up with the messages, look for online content about the games you want to target. Look for memes, funny content, Facebook, Reddit, and Instagram groups, forums, and check what the gamers find interesting.
With all that in mind, we’ve gone ahead, did all that research for you and we’ve created 20 T-shirt designs for gaming niches, right for those top five most popular games. With slang and all.
They’re all made with our Online Designer App, and you have the option to edit the text, font, and colors.
Designing with an audience in mind is great as it gives you laser focus. When you know your public you create for them, you study what they like, and come up with a great design that becomes a bestseller.
