As an artist, I have a lot of drawings and sketches laying around not going to much use. I’ve decided to put a few of those designs on clothing, canvas prints, posters, and other products, such as coffee mugs, key rings, and postcards. The art products are branded under the name Technick Designs, products for a creative lifestyle.
I have a few other ventures happening right now, such as my creative startup company, so I wanted to ask a few friends for help. We are going to compile our designs and divvy up the profits.
One of my partners, Joshua Sanchez, helped with the graphic design for the header image on Google+, Facebook, and Zazzle Store Front. Check out his design portfolio on Cargo Collective and the Visual Vantage website to see other work that he’s done.
The t-shirt shop has some initial startup costs in terms of setting up the store and template structures, but there is a good tutorial about creating templates in Zazzle. Templates allow Zazzle users to you make hundreds of products with one image upload.
