33 Inspiring Print-On-Demand Store Examples

Last Updated May 3 2024

I went through hundreds of stores that use popular print-on-demand (POD) services like Printify, Printful, Inkedjoy, AutoDS, Gooten, TeeInBlue, etc., to source their products. These are the most well-designed, successful print-on-demand store examples of those.

I’ve tried to keep a mix of everything to show you the whole range of stores:

Tip: Use ← and → arrow keys to browse.

Screenshot of Ellen DeGeneres Shop, from the print-on-demand store examples collection.

The famous (rather infamous, of late) ex-talk show host Ellen DeGeneres has an online merchandise store that uses the print-on-demand model. She sells many different items, including t-shirts, games, underwear, sweatshirts, backpacks, mugs, bottles, tote bags, and more—some of these items are fulfilled through the print-on-demand dropshipping model.

Given this is the first example, it’s perfect to understand the print-on-demand model: On Ellen/her team’s part, they just create designs, not make or stock the merch. So when Ellen’s fans go to the online store and place orders, the print-on-demand platform (Printful or Printify, in this case) takes care of the printing, inventory, and the whole supply chain. For example, say a fan orders a “Be Kind” t-shirt from the Ellen Shop. This information will be automatically passed on to Printful. Then, Printful will print the chosen design on the chosen-sized t-shirt and send it to their address on behalf of the Ellen Shop.

The store design has the classic Ellen brand elements, including the primary sky blue colors used in the header, footer, CTAs, and other important places; typography reminiscent of the fonts used on the show; and messaging similar to what Ellen preaches—for example, here’s the about section on the homepage:

Besides the branding, the web design elements are also on point:

All in all, it’s a solid store first and a solid print-on-demand store as a result.

Screenshot of DUMBCLUB, from the print-on-demand store examples collection.

DumbClub has over a million TikTok followers and is about to reach 1 Million on YouTube. You might have seen their viral videos, in which a guy asks questions and gives a free hoodie to whoever answers right. They sell those soft, durable hoodies and a few more items on their Shopify store.

The store doesn’t look like someone made it for a quick cash grab because their video went viral. It’s the opposite: It’s a well-made store selling well-made hoodies that luckily went viral when marketing on TikTok.

I like the fun design with rounded blocks, rounded fonts, and fun, popping colors.

I also like that the store is focused on the products rather than the creator or their TikTok account (people already know!). Read the hero section text: It talks about softness, durability, design, and fast shipping—i.e., the hoodie is in focus. The same is the case with product descriptions—here’s one: “Our deluxe hoodie is made with our signature blanket-like fabric, perfectly oversized fit, and simple & unique design to give you your new favorite hoodie.” Contrast it with Ellen Shop, where Ellen is the focus—it’s “Be Kind by Ellen” on the homepage, it’s an “Ellen Extra” or “Handpicked by Ellen” on the product page. Both work well in their respective cases, but it’s a good example for you to consciously decide where to focus.

Screenshot of Better Ideas Store , from the print-on-demand store examples collection.

If you want to create a tiny, focused store or even a one-product store that uses POD, the Better Ideas Store is a good example to look at. It’s the merch store for the self-help YouTube channel Better Ideas, whose motto is “Inaction is a Slow Death.” They sell the same designs (either their logo or the motto text) on three clothing items: an embroidered hoodie, a graphic t-shirt, or a graphic hoodie.

The store design is very minimalistic. It has a hero video of the creator wearing the hoodie they sell and three product columns below it of the POD items. That’s it.

The store also has secondary pages for courses and articles, expanding its reach beyond just physical goods to include educational resources as well.​

Screenshot of Duncan Trussell Family Hour, from the print-on-demand store examples collection.

Duncan Trussell is a comedic podcast host. His episodes discuss and explore spirituality and debatable topics like the afterlife and reincarnation.

Therefore, his podcast website’s design blends mysticism and modernity. On the layout front, the emphasis is on the latest podcast episodes—each featuring an artistically rendered image of the guest as a thumbnail, the guest’s name and bio, the sponsors for the episode, and an embedded audio player to listen to the episode on the website.

A side goal of this website is to sell merchandise, which includes printed tees primarily. And the descriptions on the product page hint at the use of a POD service: “This shirt is made especially for you as soon as you place an order, which is why it takes us a bit longer to deliver it to you. Making shirts on-demand instead of in bulk helps reduce overproduction, so thank you for making thoughtful purchasing decisions!”

Screenshot of Dogecore, from the print-on-demand store examples collection.

Dogecore blends humor, art, and apparel. Founded by two friends, it offers T-shirts, hoodies, hats, phone cases, stickers, and prints with a playful and irreverent style. Their designs appeal to a niche audience (which is quite a bit given they have 150k+ Instagram followers) that enjoys internet humor and streetwear fashion.

The store is designed by customizing a popular premium Shopify theme called Baseline, a brutalist-inspired theme. So, it has a unique aesthetic while being functionally perfect.

I personally like their brand of humor, and obviously, so do their potential customers. So the big, creative product descriptions are a cherry on top for them:

Screenshot of Sunshine Shop, from the print-on-demand store examples collection.

Sunshine Shop by Terrie and Frank creates clothing and accessories that promote self-care and connection through spiritually inspired designs. The store has many designs, including from many featured creators.

It’s your typical professionally designed store with soft beige colors, smiling photos, and the products and creators at the center of it all. I like the product descriptions on this store—they explain the philosophy behind the design and introduce the creator. For example, here’s one:

Screenshot of Charli D

Charli D’Amelio, who has over 200 million followers across social media, has an official merchandise store that sells hoodies, t-shirts, and accessories through the Printful POD platform. The designs are inspired by her personal interests, like coffee and dance, and cater to fans’ tastes with a mix of casual and fashionable styles.

Functionally, the store is solid. It has her in the hero section, the products are front and center, the navigation is obvious, etc. I also like the simple welcome message: “i hope we have just the right collection of products to create your vibe. thank you for visiting my official merchandise website.”

But, I think the aesthetics can be better…it doesn’t affect the sales as products are always sold out, but I think fans would like a store that says more than “Here’s the merch, buy it.”

Screenshot of Jake Paul, from the print-on-demand store examples collection.

Jake Paul, another popular social media personality, has a merch store that uses the print-on-demand platform Printful. The store sells clothes and accessories from his “Problem Child” and “Boxing Bullies” brands. These collections include hoodies, shirts, hats, and stickers with slogans like “Pay Fighters More” that urge better pay for fighters. The merchandise reflects Jake Paul’s interests in boxing and social influence.

It’s a very direct, functional store just like the previous one. But it at least has a couple of photos of Jake wearing the merch.

Screenshot of Totally Toronto Art, from the print-on-demand store examples collection.

Totally Toronto Art Inc. sells artistic prints and gifts that celebrate Toronto’s cultural heritage. It features artist David Crighton’s work that captures the spirit of the city as prints on posters, pillows, mugs, and more.

The site is designed by a professional Shopify agency Aeolidia, so it’s obviously well-designed functionally and aesthetically.

Screenshot of The Art of Manliness Store, from the print-on-demand store examples collection.

The Art of Manliness is a popular blog that teaches men to style, get strong, get skilled, and improve overall. One of the ways the blog is monetized is through an online store that uses the print-on-demand dropshipping model. They sell accessories, books, apparel, posters, and more through Printfu.

The store design is simple - there’s nothing but a list of products in a three-column layout. Each product’s description hints toward “manliness” and other stuff they discuss in the blog.

Screenshot of iLikeMaps , from the print-on-demand store examples collection.

iLikeMaps creates beautiful map prints for over 700 cities worldwide. Founded by Montreal artist Olivier Gratton-Gagné, the business offers stylish map-themed decor items, including prints, pillows, shower curtains, and bags. Their web app, iLikeMaps Creator, lets customers design and order custom map prints from their site.

It has a decent modern design, great product descriptions, well-categorized collections, and a search bar— which is a necessity in stores with so many products.

They can improve the store a bit by adding customer reviews on product pages. They mention their 400+ 5-star reviews on Etsy but customers would prefer seeing them right there for instant trust—so I suggest exporting Etsy reviews and adding to the Shopify store.

Screenshot of TheDynaSmiles, from the print-on-demand store examples collection.

DynaSmiles by DNT is an art brand that celebrates Black beauty with bright and cheerful illustrations that positively showcase Black women and families. Founded by Daveia Odoi in 2009, it offers high-quality paper goods, apparel, and more. Their range includes stationery, gifts, and apparel featuring Daveia Odoi’s vibrant artwork.

Screenshot of Airportag, from the print-on-demand store examples collection.

Airportag is a superb example of a successful niche print-on-demand store. It’s an online store for aviation and travel enthusiasts. It offers personalized and custom-designed products inspired by airport codes and travel themes, including home decor items, tech accessories, travel-themed T-shirts, hoodies, bags, office supplies, and wall art.

The website design won’t win any prizes, but they have over 150k Instagram followers, 8000+ 5-star reviews, and beautiful photos of customers wearing their products while traveling!

Malco is a startup based in Solothurn that offers customizable, affordable, and sustainable wooden letters. The letters are lovingly hand-painted in Switzerland by the founders, Andreas and Sabrina, who are passionate about typography, design, and the power of words.

This isn’t exactly POD as you are here to see it, but it’s made on demand and likely replicable in the dropshipping POD sense.

Screenshot of Inspire Uplift, from the print-on-demand store examples collection.

Inspire Uplift is one of the biggest dropshipping stores. In a case study for Printful, its founder revealed they also use POD and process 15k orders a month through it.

Here’s a quote from the case study:

“With print-on-demand and Printful, the barrier to entry is so low. If you have an idea, you can open up your Etsy shop or Shopify store, integrate it with Printful, and it doesn’t cost you anything to get started and test your idea. If it works, you can expand upon that. If you find something that works, you’re not going to be limited by ordering products in bulk, waiting 30 days for them to arrive, and shipping everything to customers yourself.”

Screenshot of The Tony Leonard Collection , from the print-on-demand store examples collection.

The Tony Leonard Collection features the captivating photography of Kentucky-based Tony Leonard. His photos focus on the beauty of horse racing, and you can buy those in the form of fine art prints, canvases, and posters. Of course, Tony only focuses on the photos part here, and the POD platform prints and sends those canvases and posters.

Their web design is good and is probably a slightly customized version of the free Shopify theme Craft.

Deneen’s Creative Mind is Deneen’s store to sell her artwork as prints on mugs, tote bags, posters, etc. I like this store for its smallness and personal feel. Plus, it has nice poppy colors and artsy fonts that suit well.

Fable-ous Finds sells fairytale-inspired apparel and accessories, including items from classic stories like “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Peter Pan,” and products celebrating literary figures such as Jane Austen. The store also offers a collection of unique items for doll enthusiasts.

Inspire Me Positive is a niche print-on-demand store. They sell items with positive phrases on them — things like t-shirts with text that reads “Be Kind,” “Spread Love Not Hate,” etc.

I love the idea. And the store design is decent. But I hate the logo — it looks very cheap.
