Plugin into Your YouTube Audience with Custom T-Shirt Prints

If you’re an up and coming YouTuber with a decent amount of subscribers, you might be wondering what the next step is to grow your channel, promote your brand, and make more money. A number of people have been able to make a career off of solely being a YouTube celebrity, and the most popular ones can pull in millions of dollars a year.

Making money as a YouTuber isn’t strictly accomplished by monetizing your videos and getting your viewers to watch ads – they can also get sponsorships or sell merchandise to their fans. In fact, Sellfy (an app that can calculate a YouTuber’s earnings) found that content creators who sell merch can make up to 10 times more than YouTubers who opt exclusively to making money on ad earnings.Plugin into Your YouTube Audience with Custom T-Shirt Prints

It’s Easier than You Think

It may feel overwhelming to even consider starting up your own merch line, especially if you don’t feel comfortable with designing your own tshirts and other apparel – what if people don’t like them? But with R&P Prints you don’t have to worry about that. Our in-house designers can help you come up with a design that is perfect for your audience. We offer custom tshirt printing using state-of-the-art manual and automatic screen printing equipment, all on quality clothing from popular and top-of-the-line brands.

R&P Prints Has Everything You Need

Check out our online catalogue to see a full listing of the brands we carry with recognized names such as Gildan, Hanes, American Apparel, Fruit of the Loom, Bella, Alo, and Nike Golf. We also have a number of different styles and types of products to choose from, including activewear, bags and accessories, fleece, headwear, outerwear, pants and shorts, tshirts, safety wear, workwear, and youth wear.

We specialize in silk screen printing which is a popular method of printing because it is incredibly versatile and able to print on a number of materials and products, like custom polo shirt printing and jersey printing. Screen printing is also very durable, able to handle multiple washes without fading and cracking.

So no matter what kind of products you are looking to sell to your YouTube fans – whether you’re looking to sell hats, hoodies, tshirts, or even tote bags – R&P Prints has you covered.

Where to Begin?

YouTube Creator’s Academy outlines some core principles about selling merchandise on your YouTube channel. First, they say, it’s important to even know whether or not you’re ready to sell merch.

  • Does your channel have an existing brand, and is that brand strong enough that it has a decent amount of search activity?
  • How engaged is your audience? What matters most isn’t how many subscribers you have, but rather how active they are on your channel. Moreover, do you have a strong relationship with them and have they even been asking for merchandise?

If you have a strong community that follows your channel closely, then consider asking them what kind of merch they’d be interested in. The point of the merchandise you sell is to make your audience feel a part of a community, so make sure that the merch you offer is relevant to them.

  • Do you have any inside jokes, memes, and/or catchphrases that only people in your community would get?
  • Do you have existing branding on your channel – a mascot, logo, etc.?
  • Do you have any special milestones coming up? For example, you can release merch that celebrates a subscriber milestone (just like PewDiePie’s 90 mill sub merch).

Start Slow

Even though you may have an idea of what your audience wants, it’s a good idea to start slow and see how successful your first product is. The safest bet is to choose tshirts with a custom design as your first set of merch to sell. When making an order it’s better to get custom t shirts in bulk which is actually more affordable for you and makes it easier for your audience to buy merch right away instead of having to wait for on-demand orders.

When introducing your product be sure to wear it during your videos that way your audience can get an opportunity to see first-hand how the product looks. Seeing you wear it is also a great way to create hype and presents an opportunity for you to plug in your merch into a segment of your video.

Make sure to direct your audience to where they can buy your merch by including it in the video description or on end screens and cards. As your product sells, be sure to give a shout-out to your followers and thank them for buying your product – it’ll help them to feel connected to you and make them feel good about getting recognition from one of their favourite YouTubers!

Flex Your Nerd Cred with Custom Silk Screen Printing

There are so many great TV shows, movies, video games, comics, book series, and more, to love and enjoy nowadays, that it’s not hard to find a fandom where you can call home. A fandom, if you don’t already know, is a group of people who have a tight community based on their love of a common interest. They are usually active in the community of their interest and know everything there is to know about their favourite show, movie, video game, etc.

Flex Your Nerd Cred with Custom Silk Screen Printing

There are fandoms for popular shows and movies like Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Breaking Bad, and plenty more, where it wouldn’t be hard to find others who share the same interests as you. It also wouldn’t be hard to find some merchandise that lets you show off your fandom. You know, like Harry Potter scarves or Game of Thrones t shirts and mugs.

But if the TV or book series, or even video game that you’re into doesn’t have a big fandom then it can be hard to find swag to show off your nerd cred. Limiting yourself to what’s on Redbubble can be a pain, especially if the quality of the merchandise there is disappointing and not at all what you’re expecting.

R&P Prints Can Hook You Up With Personalized Swag

We offer custom t shirt silk screen printing on quality, brand-name products, using state of the art automatic and manual equipment. Don’t limit yourself to the small or non-exist amount of merchandise out there and instead contact us to create the perfect merch to show off your favourite fan series.

On our website you can search through our online catalogue to get a sense of the number of brands we work with as well as the huge amount of selection we carry, which include:

  • T shirts
  • Hoodies
  • Bags and accessories
  • Polos
  • Tanks
  • Shorts and legwear
  • Headwear (toques and baseball caps)
  • Outerwear
  • Youth wear

With R&P Prints you can create any kind of custom apparel for yourself that will be exactly what you are looking for. The results we produce are vivid and stunning, and will be sure to draw the attention of other fans and onlookers as well.

By choosing us you can expect only the best in screen printing services, like a full range of products, free estimates, great prices, design consultations, no setup fees, and free delivery. With R&P Prints you can expect the full package of exceptional customer service and quality product delivery.

And when working with us you will be in touch with a service representative who will take the time to listen to your needs and make sure that you are getting the exact product that you want – even if you don’t know what that is yet. That’s why we have graphic designers available who can discuss design ideas with you and help you find one that works with what you’re looking for.

You won’t get this kind of personal service with other websites that do all of their transactions online and that don’t offer any sort of personalization or custom options. For example, you can even ask us to create personalized hoodies that include your name and which Game of Thrones house you think you’d belong to. So if you really want to show off your fandom and how much you love it you should contact us so that we can create a product for you that is truly special.

What’s Your Fandom?

If you’re a fan of any of these series, then you might understand the pain of not being able to easily find quality merchandise to help you show off your fandom.

Novel: The Mistborn Trilogy (by Brandon Sanderson)

Brandon Sanderson is a popular author with a number of books that have captured the hearts and imagination of a number of people. The Mistborn trilogy is a popular series about a dystopian fantasy world controlled by the “Lord Ruler” and how a handful of people are trying to overthrow him using the power of ingesting metal particles to use special abilities.

Comic: Bone (by Jeff Smith)

This comic book series by Jeff Smith was released between 1991 and 2004 and has won multiple rewards for its unique style and ability to appeal to a number of ages. It’s a story about going on an adventure and achieving personal growth all through a fantasy-style setting.

TV Show: The OA (created by Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij)

You can watch both Season 1 and 2 of The OA on Netflix and fans are hoping that there is a Season 3 in the works. This quirky show follows the story of a woman who believes she is the “original angel” who can travel between dimensions. It’s rightfully garnered a cult following of fans who are interested in the unfolding mystery of the OA and her search to unravel the mysteries of the universe and ultimately save her friends.

Video Game: Games by Team ICO

Team ICO is a Japanese video game development studio who is responsible for creating the games Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, and most recently, The Last Guardian. These games are characterized by using a minimalistic design that doesn’t rely on narration to convey a feeling to players. Instead they focus on the setting, using bloom and high dynamic range rendering (HDR) lighting to create a tone that conveys feeling. Because of this, they are generally considered to be a good example of how video games can function as an art form.

And Plenty More

These series have a strong fandom base but are not as recognized as they should be – which is why finding good, quality merchandise and apparel can be extremely difficult and frustrating. And of course there are plenty more out there of underrated series that more people should look into because of how great they are.
