Sell clothes with customized prints

Hi,

We are building a shop to sell clothes with custom prints, so all clothes have different sizes and predefined slogans/prints that customer can choose from. Now the problem is how to show this in the product overview and how to manage stock for this "variants"?

For example: we have 300 pcs of blue t-shirts and customers can choose between 10 (predefined) slogans or just plain t-shirts. The prints will be made just as the item is ordered so we don't have stock of t-shirts with prints.

We also want to show all variants of different t-shirts (colors) and different prints on the product list/overview page.

What is the best solution for this?

Thanks in advance!

Hello! Congrats on starting a shop; this is always a fun, but overwhelming timeframe.

It sounds like you want to offer the world to your customers. In my previous store, I used an app from the Shopify App store called Infinite Options. This app allows you to list different options the customer can choose from.

With that being said, I do not think offering too many options at once would be in your best interest. Customers tend to be overwhelmed and will leave without purchasing anything.

Just an idea...maybe for product one you can offer 5 different color shirts and one slogan. This way they can shop by slogan and not which shade of blue they want (300 is a large number).

Good luck!

Hi, Jens!

This is Max from the Shopify Team. 

It looks like you've gotten some good advice so far. Are you planning on printing the tees yourself on demand, or did you need some help to get that done? If so, you might want to use an app the help you print the designs and ship them to your customers. Here are some popular options. Though, it sounds like you might have that covered.

I agree with Lavish Dash that creating multiple products would be more accessible for must potential buyers. One product per design/slogan is an option that makes sense to me, then you could use some apps like Customify ‑ Product Customizer , Bold Product Options, or another one of these. This will help if you plan on having the customer choose more than just the slogan, but perhaps, the positioning of it, etc!

Best of luck with your ideas, and let us know what you decide, we'd love to take a look!

Cheers, 
Max
