Now that you have picked your aesthetic & art style for your art prints, go wild, my friend!
You’ll want to experiment a ton in terms of art prints. Now, of course, there is the easy route and then there is the not-so-easy route. You (almost) always get what you invest, so consider which business model works best for you.
The easiest way to start and sell art prints online is to consider print-on-demand drop-shipping. Some brands that offer this service are **Printful** & Printify, both of which easily integrate with Shopify and offer a wide range of products from t-shirts and caps to mugs and wall decor. All you’d have to do is create your AI art, upload them on the web and when the order comes, you simply sit and relax while the drop-shipping services do the rest.
If you’re just looking to start a side hustle and see where it takes you, then this is the best path to follow. However, there is always a catch. Using print-on-demand and drop-shipping services would mean that you have zero to little control of the quality of your art prints and products. If you’re looking to build a brand that stands the test of time & cultivates a brand name, then this route may not be the best one to take.
For those who are looking to build a brand that is a masterpiece then you’ll want to do things a little differently. The stakes will be higher but so would the reward. You’d want to either invest in good printing equipment or partner up with a quality printing service that is on par with your expectations. You’d also want to ensure the quality of the paper, clothing, or whatever item it is you’re selling online is also top notch and that no detail is spared when it comes to the quality & beauty of your product.
