Because of how essential they are, people look for ways to make them more personal and fit their style.

Design inspiration for funny t-shirts that sell

Finding the right design inspiration for your custom t-shirts can make or break your brand. We made a list of the most popular niches to consider getting into to get you started. It is important to consider the niche you would like to design because it makes your design process more comfortable. Below are three common niches for funny t-shirts.

design t-shirts

Commentary funny tees

Commentary on everyday happenings and finding the funny in even the craziest times can be the best selling idea. 

For example, take 2020. In the span of just a few months, everyone was experiencing life in ways we never thought of before – a life of new regulations like social distancing, face masks, and other safety measures. While talking directly about this issue on a t-shirt might be a horrible idea, finding the silver lining is genius. 

Many people started online businesses and started making t-shirts with funny statements about the new normal. From reminding people to stay the 6ft apart required in social distancing to “I can’t wait till the outside is open again” t-shirts following lockdowns.

Unisex Heavy Cotton Tee

Gildan 5000

It’s 2020, and you may not want to classify your customers in their birth-assigned genders in your store. That is where the Unisex heavy cotton tee from Printify that is a short-sleeve bestseller comes in. It has a relaxed fit in classic t-shirt style and a lovely soft cotton feel. It can be designed in the front and back. Its casual elegance will make it an instant favorite in anyone’s wardrobe.

Commentary t-shirts are versatile as they can always mirror what is going on in society. They can be tailored to current events or even personalities, such as the funny design for introverts that says, “introverts unite, separately.” Designing within this niche means you’ll never lack what to say, and your funny tees will always be a hit.

Unisex 3/4 Sleeve Baseball Tee

You may be looking for a not so basic t-shirt look. Something elevated and not your run of the mill style but keeps all the features you like from a comfy tee.

Graphic funny tees

This is perhaps the most significant niche in the market of funny t-shirts today. It is an art that was established long before print on demand was the online giant it is today. Retro band graphic tees were the one item picked for exclusive offers for every band touring the world. They are still as popular because vintage retro tees never go out of style. 

Today graphic tees come in different shapes and forms. Some are cool nerdy tee for the right “it” customers; some are from cool geeky or popular movies like bigfoot, or since it’s cool to be a nerd again, about things that show your intelligence and hobbies. It’s also popular to see a T-rex on kid tees.

Some show your allegiance, such as “I am allergic to boredom” and pets because we all love a crazy dog t-shirt. Graphic tees such as Ninja tees that can be flipped are fun or even unicorns. Speaking of unicorns, graphic tees of mythical creatures or Disney characters look-alikes are always a hit. Anything is possible with graphic design.

Sell funny custom t-shirts online

If you are new to Print on Demand, it can seem like a foreign concept that is too complicated for you. It’s really not. Print on demand is a modern business model for online stores today. In fact, as of 2020, more than 3 million online entrepreneurs have used print on demand to sell over 60 million unique print-on-demand merchandising items every day. This shows that with the right idea and quality designs, you too can sell funny t-shirts online quickly, and as long as you keep the demand high, and make a good profit off it.

printify free merch maker

Custom printed funny t-shirts are produced and fulfilled every day with print on demand. The process is simple; once a customer buys your funny tee from your online store, the order goes through a quality check and is then sent to your chosen Print Provider, who begins the process of production. 

After your t-shirts are produced, they are shipped to your customer’s doorstep as soon as possible. You, as the business owner, can sit back and relax as your hard work in marketing pays off. 

This business model is ideal for small businesses as it removes the need for storage, inventory, a large sum as capital, or finding your own shipping partners. There’s no better way to do business online today than print on demand.

Funny t-shirts with no minimums

Because you pay for every product, you sell separately, and only after you make a sale with print on demand, there is no limit on how many t-shirts you can sell at a time. It also means that you get custom printed t-shirts with no minimum whenever you need them. 

You can order custom t-shirts in bulk, no matter how large your custom printed funny t-shirt business gets. You can rest easy because print-on-demand gives you the peace of mind of knowing you will never run out of stock, regardless of how much you sell. This is especially crucial during high sale seasons, such as December holidays and events. 

Another added advantage of t-shirts with no minimum is you can sell them throughout the year and change your designs to meet the season. You are also free to try selling in bundles. Bundling is a marketing tool used to boost sales by selling multiple items at once as a set. They are a great way to not only meet demand, for instance, in bundles for families but also as exclusive offers to boost seasonal gifting sales for your store. Funny t-shirts with no minimums allow you to generously bundle and sell without worrying about inventory or stock keeping.
