Merch Informer Market Has Launched!
It has been a little over 5 years since Merch by Amazon launched and we joined the Print on Demand Community. During that time, here at Merch Informer, we have watched businesses grow, new ideas come to light, and people sell hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of print on demand goods all across the world!
Print on Demand offers a wide range of opportunities for EVERY kind of seller and we have done our very best to provide the tools and solutions to make your life easier in this journey.
Here at Merch Informer, we have noticed a glaring issue over the last 5 years – If you are NOT a graphic artist by trade, POD (Print on Demand) can be a lot harder than it should be.
Sure, there are many places that you can go to hire out artwork, find a VA, and learn how to list your products.
…but this requires an incredible amount of time to go through and sort out everyone until you find the perfect candidate that works well with you and is a great fit for your business.
This all changes TODAY with the launch of the Merch Informer Market.
The Merch Informer Market Has Launched!
If this is your first time on Merch Informer, we want to formally welcome you!
Today, we are launching the Merch Informer marketplace.
This is a first of its kind marketplace where YOU can interact with hand picked designers and industry experts who are eager to showcase their work, guidance, and services.
The Merch Informer Market is a little bit different from other marketplaces you may be accustomed to.
First, the MI Market is specifically for Print on Demand! We know the industry and we know what you need to succeed in this business. Finding the right graphics, the right guidance and the right files/dimensions are very important to your success. Our sellers understand Print on Demand just like you do, and can provide what you are looking for.
Second, the MI Market has HAND SELECTED Sellers! Being in the POD space, we know how important quality over quantity is and we understand the sheer amount of time it can take to find the perfect fit for your business. The Merch Informer Market is hand selected. This means that not just anyone can sign up and start listing designs, courses, and packages for sale. Each item listed goes through an approval process before being listed for sale. This ensures that YOU, the buyer, do not have to look through many terrible listings before finding exactly what you are looking for.
After spending thousands of hours ourselves over the years going through designers, we think that you deserve this peace of mind.
Third, The MI Market Offers 1 Off Sales! This is incredibly important for Print on Demand business owners because the last thing you want is to be selling the SAME design that thousands of other people are selling. Yes, you can buy graphic packs on the market and use those to create unique items. However, if you are buying full designs, you want to make sure that those are not being sold to your competition as well!
When sellers list a product for sale, they have the ability to make it a one-time sale. This means that if YOU buy that design, it then gets removed from the Merch Informer Market and no one else can purchase it or see it.
Fourth, The MI Market has a built in contact and custom offer system! Once you have found the perfect freelancer or a great graphic artist that has the same style that fits with your business, you will want them to create custom art for you.
The Merch Informer Market has a built in system that allows you (the buyer) to send custom offers and tell the artist exactly what you are looking for. From there, you can use the built in communication system to go back and forth with the seller or request revisions until you are happy with the final product.
Fifth, The MI Market allows peace of mind! Merch Informer created the marketplace to be your go to for everything Print on Demand. This means that if you purchase something on the market, you need to get the files, be secure, and be happy with what you bought. The system is 100% secure and we ensure that the job is completed or you get your money back.
