Business Story

Why this business was started

My job at the time was unfulfilling and I had an idea for a few t-shirt designs. I got to work and decided to create the Shopify store to sell them. Creating them unlocked a huge creative spark in me and I went on a mission. Soon I had over 400 designs in a wide variety of categories.

The reason of selling this business

I have a new job which is very busy and a young family. I don't have the time to dedicate to producing new designs and I also have no idea how to market my store. It has grown mostly organically to this point and is ready for someone to take it to the next level. Targetted marketing campaigns would no doubt be able to drive things higher.

What's involved in running this business

The business is currently completely automated through various Shopify integrations. Orders received are passed through to the print-on-demand supplier (CustomCat). Once these orders a shipped, notifications are passed through to the customer with tracking information. It really is a seamless customer experience. There is no stock to hold or manual work to perform. The only involvement needed is responding to customer queries. Typically this will be questions about a product before purchase, delivery updates or very occassionally, refunds or replacement requests.

This business was founded: almost 3 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 1 hour per week

Other details about profit: A significant proportion of cost is fixed costs (Shopify subscription $30, Codisto subscription $30, CustomCat subscription $30, Amazon store $40, Ebay store $8). These costs do not increase as sales rise so there is a big opportunity to make more profit. T-Shirts are currently listed at $18.99 on all platforms with an average margin of 27% Thus, even a small increase in sales will result in a large increase in profits.

    Hand D.Current store owner
    I work in software design and founded Hand Drawn Tees as a way to express my creative urges. The store hugely exceeded my expectations and has earned a nice side-income over the past few years. I put hundreds of hours in to get it to where it is, but now someone else needs to take it to the next level.
