What began as a hand-painted merchandise hobby has become its own flavor of apparel available through Amazon Prime. A few years ago I started taking commissions for hand-painted clothing and selling them through Etsy. After a while I had a hard time finding the necessary hours to get the work done and create custom pieces for every client.
Flash forward to 2019 when I discovered Amazon’s Merchant services, in which artists can apply for a vendor account and submit artwork for Amazon to screen print and ship to customers. Once I was able to submit my designs, market them and wipe my hands of the extra effort, my side business began to blossom. Check out some of the more popular designs I’ve sold so far in the gallery below.
