Hey there bloggers! Tired of the same old ways to make money from your blog?

Ads and affiliate links might bring in some cash, but they can clutter your space and turn readers off. Ready for a fresh way to make money with your creativity?

Introducing print-on-demand (PoD). Forget the cheap, mass-produced merch you might be picturing. PoD lets you create high-quality custom products that your readers will actually love, with no upfront investment or messy inventory.

It's the perfect way to turn your blog's ideas into a revenue stream AND something tangible!

Let me break it down for you...

What exactly is print on demand?

It’s simple! You design products your audience will like - think t-shirts, mugs, caps, whatever fits your blog's style. And a PoD company like Inkthreadable does the rest.

Someone orders from your shop, and we handle the printing, shipping, and everything in between. You get paid, your customer gets a cool product, and you don’t have to worry about any of the boring bits like printing or packaging.

Why is this so useful for bloggers?

Make more money... and make it your way

Ads and affiliate links can help you earn a bit here and there, but let’s be real, the money isn’t always amazing. Wouldn’t it be awesome to have your own products where you get to decide how much you make?

With print on demand, you have total control over your prices. This means you can set profit margins that actually make a difference to your bank account.

Suppose that a cool t-shirt costs you £11 from your PoD supplier. You can easily sell that t-shirt for £25 and you’ve made £14 profit, more than doubling your money!

Now think about all those blog readers you have. The more people you have interested in your blog, the more those profits stack up.

But it’s not just about the cash. As a blog writer you're likely very creative, and print on demand gives you the freedom to put your own creative spin on things!

With PoD, your blog’s personality can shine through in every product. Funny quotes, inside jokes, beautiful designs… it’s all up to you. People are more likely to spend money on something that truly reflects your brand and connects with them. 

But a shop doesn’t just boost your income...

Boost your SEO game

Every new product is a new page on your website, and more pages means Google pays more attention to you, which means more people finding your blog!

Let’s say you’re a travel blogger. You make a few unique tees with your logo and some funny travel quotes. Suddenly, someone looking for “quirky travel gifts” might stumble upon your designs, and boom they’ve just discovered your whole blog and wonder where you’ve been all their life!

More products = more pages = more opportunities for Google to send new readers your way.
That’s how PoD helps your blog climb the search results, putting you in front of a bigger audience!

Build your brand

Your blog is way more than just words, it’s a community, a vibe, a whole brand. And wouldn’t it be amazing to take that brand beyond the screen? Imagine your readers rocking your logo on a tee, sipping coffee from a mug with your catchphrase, or carrying a tote bag with your coolest design.

That’s what print on demand is all about! It takes your blog’s personality and turns it into cool merchandise.
It’s your brand becoming something your readers can wear, use, and proudly show off. That’s a powerful way to turn readers into raving fans!

Connect with your audience

Want to give your readers something they’ll love? Print on demand lets you create products that perfectly speak to their interests - way more exciting than some slightly-related affiliate link.

Maybe you have a hilarious inside joke with your community, a quote that inspires them, or stunning artwork that perfectly captures your blog's theme.
Turn those into printed designs, and suddenly, you're giving readers a way to show off their love for your blog in their own life! That's the kind of connection that keeps people coming back for more.

"But I'm not a designer!"

That’s okay! There are tons of easy tools out there to help you create designs.

Canva is a fantastic option that we recently wrote about. If you have a cool catchphrase, a logo, or inside jokes from your community, slap ‘em on a Canva template and create a new product! It’s really that simple.

Don’t be afraid to start with the basics, you might be surprised at how much people love a design that feels personal to the blog.

"Sounds like a lot of work..."
