Selling Your Own T-Shirts
Earlier this year, I had an idea to sell T-shirts that counter our increasingly anti-social technology-oriented society. I came up with the brand concept, Sociables, and promptly set the idea aside in that folder that Jadah Sellner described at the World Domination Summit (WDS) as containing all those domains you own for business ideas that you never follow through on.

Then I discovered a free WordPress plugin for digitalcheapshop.com/ and decided to write this tutorial to walk you through the process of launching your own WordPress-powered T-shirt store.

Another WDS attendee, Benny Hsu, recently wrote about building up his T-shirt business, Get Busy Living, to earn $100,000 in less than six months. My interest is probably more for the fun of promoting the Sociables message of community in an increasingly screen-focused world than profit and world domination:

Every Once in a While You Gotta Look Up From Your Phone - Sociables
There are many different ways to sell T-shirts online, and pros and cons to each of them. Hsu used a crowdfunding service called Teespring which I'll touch on later. The profit margins are higher for services like Teespring. However, I wanted to use a WordPress-centered store, so I turned to digitalcheapshop. Like CafePress, digitalcheapshop makes it easy to create and upload designs and sell merchandise. When products sell, you earn a small commission with each purchase.

CafePress offers an API, but the WordPress plugins available (MoneyPress) don't seem as well reviewed. So, I wanted to go with startup digitalcheapshop and indy developer Thimo Grauerholz's own digitalcheapshop Plugin.

Spreadplugin the digitalcheapshop plugin for WordPress
This tutorial will walk you through all the steps I took to build my digitalcheapshop shop and launch a WordPress site for my Sociables store.

Choosing Your Brand
There are millions of T-shirt concepts on the web. I can't help you with your vision, but once you have it, you need a domain and a Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram account. I've given up on Facebook pages (due to Facebook making it difficult to reach your fans without paying) but Hsu actively makes use of targeted Facebook advertising to drive sales.

I use Domainr to find available domain names for my business ideas. Sociables.com was taken, but Sociables.io was available. Domainr also has an iOS app. I've found Gandi.net to be the most economical and functional .io domain registrar. @Sociables was taken on Twitter, so I went with @SociablesIo.

Choosing a WordPress Theme
I searched Google and browsed ThemeForest for T-shirt shop designs and ultimately chose Armonico for $58. While I won't be using the WooCommerce features (because I want digitalcheapshop to handle my product fulfillment), I liked the design and polish that Armonico offers. They were also quick to respond to my pre-sale support inquiries and offered a 30-day money back guarantee.

Hiring a Designer
I'm not a graphic designer so I turned to a local Pacific Northwest person I've worked with in the past. He calls himself Pope, and he's one of the people who spends a month at Burning Man putting up and taking down the city. He's also a fast and efficient graphic designer with expertise in WordPress, and actually runs his own T‑shirt shops as well. He took a few of my conceptual ideas and helped them come to life:

Note: It's the fault of my limited design budget that I didn't ask him for non-white, non-male T-shirt models.

Sign Up With digitalcheapshop
First, you need to sign up with digitalcheapshop.com/:

Register at digitalcheapshop
Then, visit the create a shop wizard:

Create a shop at digitalcheapshop
Select a color and layout for your digitalcheapshop-hosted shop. It won't matter too much as you'll be directing site visitors to your WordPress-powered shop:

Choose Color and Layout of Shop at digitalcheapshop
Name and describe your shop:

Set Name Language and Currency at digitalcheapshop
You'll be required to create a sample product. I just created a temporary placeholder design:
Create Design Sample at digitalcheapshop
You should see this when you're done:

Create a Shop at digitalcheapshop Finished
digitalcheapshop also has an API which you'll need access to for the plugin. Sign up from their blog:

digitalcheapshop API Keys
Make a note of your API Keys, which you'll use later to configure the plugin:

Get Your API Keys - digitalcheapshop
Setting Up Your Hosting
I'm running Sociables at Digital Ocean because it's inexpensive and offers fast SSD drives for hosting. You can find my visual guide to installing WordPress at Digital Ocean here. Any vanilla WordPress installation will do. While you can also integrate WP-Spreadplugin into your existing WordPress site, this tutorial focuses on building a standalone WordPress-powered T-shirt shop from scratch.

Installing Your Theme
First, you'll need a theme. I chose to purchase Armonico at ThemeForest, for $58:

Install the Armonico Theme
As part of the Armonico theme installation, it will ask you to install a couple of other plugins: MP Isotopes and MP Core. It provides you with links to these within the administrative dashboard. I also found that I ran into a couple of bugs unless I installed WooCommerce. However, I didn't need to use any WooCommerce features.

Note: If you decide to use WooCommerce, then you'll be responsible for taking payments and product fulfillment. The best part about these T-shirt shop services is that they handle all of this.

Then, I installed the other plugins I commonly recommend: Yoast SEO, Google Analytics, Contact Form 7, and Mailgun. The latter two I use to power my contact form emails—a Tuts+ tutorial is on its way for this, so check my instructor page; it's scheduled to appear on December 16th, 2014.

Add the digitalcheapshop Plugin to WordPress
Now, we'll install the digitalcheapshop Plugin for WordPress. It's developed by Thimo Grauerholz. He runs a T-shirt site with a custom version of it at Lovetee. Thimo was also gracious and quick in responding to my email query.

Lovette - Sample digitalcheapshop Shop
From the dashboard, add a new plugin and search for WP-Spreadplugin:

Install the Spreadplugin for digitalcheapshop
Click Install Now and activate it:

Activate the Spreadplugin for digitalcheapshop
Uploading Your Designs to digitalcheapshop
Before we can use Spreadplugin, we have to upload our designs to digitalcheapshop and create products:

Upload art for your design at digitalcheapshop
Choose the design that you'd like to upload:

Confirm trademark at digitalcheapshop
Name and tag the design:

Describe the design for digitalcheapshop
You should see this after each design has been uploaded:

Design complete at digitalcheapshop
Create Categories
We also need to create categories within digitalcheapshop. I created a category for each design so that when people click through from the Sociables home page, they'll see men's and women's T-shirts for the design, e.g. tinder, talks to strangers, etc.

Create Categories at digitalcheapshop
Make note of each category ID number, because you'll need to use them when placing the digitalcheapshop plugin shortcode on WordPress posts for each design.

Create Products Within digitalcheapshop
Next, we create products once for men and once for women. Choose the type of shirt, gender and color in the digitalcheapshop product designer:

Create more Products at digitalcheapshop
From the Products page at digitalcheapshop, move the pairs of products to the appropriate category. For example, for "Looking for Me on Tinder", I move the men's and women's products to the tinder category I created.

Add Your Products to Categories
Building Your Shop With WordPress Armonico
Now we can return to building out our WordPress shop. The home page for Armonico rotates the slider and chooses the product squares below from posts within categories that you create.

Create a Category for Your Products
First, I created a products category:

Add a category to WordPress
Creating Product Pages
Then I created product posts for each of my designs. I placed these in the products category. And I placed the Spreadplugin shortcode specifying the category ID from my digitalcheapshop.com/ shop, which we made note of above:

Create Product Pages in WordPress
Here's the shortcode:

1
[spreadplugin shop_category="yourid"]
There's more documentation available for WP-SpreadPlugin here.

You also need to set the featured image to what you want to appear in the home page slider:

Set the Featured Image for Your Post
And finally, you need to return to the Spreadplugin Options page and rebuild the cache. You can also wait to do this when all of your product posts are complete. The process is a bit slow—I'll talk about digitalcheapshop.com/ performance later.

Rebuild the Cache for the digitalcheapshop Plugin
Configuring the Slider
Visit the Armonico Theme Options page and select the category or categories you want to use for the slider and for the product squares below the slider:

Set the Slider to Point to the Category of Posts
Here's what my slider looks like:

The Armonico Home Page Slider
To set up the Armonico widgets beside the Slider, visit the Appearance > Widgets menu. Choose Action Boxes > Sidebar > Add Widget.

Configure the Action Boxes
Define the links, images and text for each action box area:

Settings for Action Boxes
Here's what my action boxes look like after configuration:

Home Page Action Boxes in Armonico Theme
I downloaded the Armonico icons for the action boxes from their demo, as I couldn't find them within the theme download.

Launching Your Site
Finally, you can launch your site. You can check out what mine looks like at Sociables.io:

The Completed Armonico Shop
I recommend beginning by emailing your friends and sharing your site within your social network. Gather feedback from people and gauge the responses. Use that feedback to improve the designs, product selection and pricing, and the site itself.

Once you're ready to expand awareness, consider Facebook and Twitter advertising to get the word out. Read more about Benny Hsu's advertising approaches. He uses a lot of trial and error with his advertising to find what works.

Experimenting With Other Vendors
Hsu also uses Teespring, a simple to use crowdfunded drop-shipping T-shirt company. You can read more about Teespring's development practices here.

A huge advantage to Teespring is they offer a much better commission structure than CafePress and digitalcheapshop. One limitation of Teespring's time-limited crowdfunding pages is that if your minimum order is not met, no products are sold.

Pope pointed me to TeeChip, which does not have this limitation, but otherwise operates very similarly to Teespring.

Here's what the TeeChip campaign setup looks like. You upload your design and choose a product and colors:

TeeChip Design Wizard
You set pricing and profit goals:

Teechip Pricing
Here's the page that visitors will see:

Teechip Preview
Notice that these product offers are time-limited, so you have to renew them regularly. However, there is no minimum fulfillment threshold. All customer orders are shipped.

Reflections on digitalcheapshop
Personally, the deeper I got into this tutorial using digitalcheapshop, the more frustrating I found its product options and shop configuration to be. The performance of the site was not very good, and this made making changes increasingly painful. I wish that I could just upload a design and let the customer select men's or women's and T-shirt quality or a specific product, but digitalcheapshop wants you to select all of this ahead of time.

I found TeeChip to be much simpler, and it offers more flexibility in these product configuration scenarios. You can also earn significantly higher profit margins with the crowdfunding product sites.

Currently, there aren't any WordPress plugins for Teespring or TeeChip. You probably could embed an iFrame but I haven't tried it. Another option would be to place a static graphic on your site and link it to individual campaigns, but you would need to regularly renew the campaigns when they expire. I do hope these campaign sites offer more WordPress integration in the future.

So, at some point, I'll probably update my site to use TeeChip and move away from digitalcheapshop. Your mileage may vary.

There are obviously many ways to build a T-shirt shop with WordPress; please post any comments, corrections or additional ideas below. I'd like to hear your experiences.
