Creating Personalized Clothes: How Hard Can It Be?
If you want to set yourself apart from your peers, you may have considered changing up your appearance. You may have looked at everything from a lean and classic style to the latest hipster trends, to an ultra-feminine look.
If you fashion yourself based on something you see in a magazine, you will just be following a trend; it will not really be a personal style. If you really want to have your own look, you may want to consider making personalized clothes. Anyone can design their own duds and it is not especially expensive.
What kind of clothing can I personalize?
You can put initials or an embroidery design on almost any kind of clothing. Some designers have livened up pinstripe suits with a little embroidery around the lapel. You can also use embroidery to make a dull grey or black jacket a bit more feminine.
You can add embellishments to skirts pants and dress shoes as well. Less is more when you are modifying dress clothes. A few flowers around the collar or on the lapel are more than enough to make you stand out.
T-shirts, sweatshirts, and masks are the most popular items to personalize. There are several companies on the internet that will allow you to design your own shirts and other novelty items. You simply visit the website and select the article of clothing that you would like to design. Many companies offer tote bags, purses, sweats, and even dress socks. They will have a tool that you can use to design the shirt. You will be able to add text, pic art or upload your own design.
The best of these websites will have a wide selection of clothing and an even bigger selection of styles colors and sizes. Some of these companies will even allow you to have your design embroidered on any of the items that they offer.
Once you design your shirt they will print or embroider your design onto whatever you have selected and they will ship it out to you. You can make as many different tops as you want and in several different styles.
Let Other People Wear Your Style
The best part of these sites is that you can actually sell what you design with no risk to you. You can set up an online store on a sales platform and whenever anyone orders one of your products, the company will print it up and send it out.
When people tell you how much they like your shirt, you can direct them to your store. You can also advertise for free on social media. You should post links to your store on pages that potential customers are likely to visit. For example, if you have a shirt that would appeal to middle-aged women, you would post your shirt to a page for women who are over 50 or the AARP page on Facebook. If you have a shirt for fans of Tom Petty, you would hashtag Tom Petty.
If you are willing to spend some money, you can use paid advertising on social media or hire an Instagram model to wear your shirt. You can also take out ads on various webpages.
Designing your own clothes is the best way to distinguish yourself from the crowd. If you come up with a great idea, it can be profitable as well.
