You can start your cool T-shirt design for free using either Canva or Placeit or even Envato Elelements. Alternatively, if you prefer using a stand alone software you can download to your computer without eating up your wallet, then, my favorite is Art Text Design for Mac, though you may still use softwares like WordArt or simply check out Envato Marketplace for some cool and affordable products that may be used for the same purpose. You may also use free print-on-demand websites like Teepublic to sell items with your artwork designs printed on them and make some cool money from that.

    1. Thank you so much for this video! I’m trying to figure things out for my customized t shirts that I’m
      making myself at home!!!

    2. @Greg.. Can you please advise by using Canva If there is going to be any issue with DPI… My pictures are 96 dpi only for T-shirts and will this cause any quality issues while printing and also heard people complaining about RGB color is not recommend while printing..So should I avoid using Canva for a colorful tshirt or is there any workaround.. I have some 50 designs ready from Canva but waiting to upload it since there are some talks of quality issues.

  1. This video was reccomended to me by YT and honestly, it’s the best video I have watched today! Thanks for the insights.

  2. Great video…👍 can we use canva free elements for t shirt design??
    Bcz canva FREE MEDIA LICENSE says Don’t sell unaltered copies of a photo on physical product
    Please do let me…… know I have stopped my design work

  3. Is it really legal to sell the designs which are made with canva on a PrintonDemand Shop? Using free elements, fonts from Canva?
    And what if you use an element which is a pro element, pay for it – can you also use that design then? Thank uuuu 🙂

    1. Thank you Greg, I got your cup yesterday. Greg you don’t have to respond because I know you appreciate your viewers, you say it on every one of your videos. I just want you to know how much I appreciate what you are doing. Your heart is so pure and honest that I would be doing and injustice to not constantly let you know. We as youtube seekers on how to start an at home business need you. I needed you. There is no you-tuber more honest and genuine than you are. You really are truly an awesome person.

  4. Exactly the vid I needed!!! I’m all set up for my pod, have canva, but had a hell of a time figuring out how to use it properly!!! I’m a noob!!!

    1. Love to hear that Karyn! Looks like you’re all set up for success! Take your time and go at your own pace for everything- you got this! 👍🏼👍🏼

  5. Hi Greg great videos! I know this video is a year old but that brings up a question. In your video when you open the “text” on a blank design the fonts are more design oriented. Meaning they have alot of arcs, bends, and stylish fonts. Open it now and it’s pretty bland geared more to restaurant menus, greeting cards and invitations. Is this seasonal, or an attempt by Canva to keep their text current? Using the 30 day trial but not finding much useful, at least enough to subscribe.

  6. Hey in have a problem with the coloring when I upload the picture on tee spring. When change the background the color is just a different shade im trying to have it match.

    1. No worries! It will just be taken down if it’s formally copyright protected. If it’s just the same phrase that someone else used, but it’s not formally copyrighted, then yours will not be taken down unless you copied their design too.

  7. Dear Greg…. can i use CANVAS elements for tshirts and prints? Like if I were to search for a vector of stars… can I use that or is it copyright?

  8. Hi Greg, do you have any idea or tool to quickly add effects to a font? Like a vintage or worn effect? Is it possible with Canva or even Placeit?

    1. @Greg Gottfried Binge watching your videos to be honest and questions will definitely come. I’m currently practicing what you’re teaching and excited to see where it goes. You spoke to me when you said in one of your videos to focus on one thing at a time. I focus on too many things at once sometimes to be guaranteed that something pays off and I agree that it’s not the best approach.
      You’re really really helping me Greg! God bless you!

    2. So happy to hear that! Thank you for watching & feel free to let me know if you have any questions along the way! 🙂

  9. I tried using Canva but it no longer lets me choose the resolution. When clicking download, it won’t let me make it bigger than 1556 x 2000 without upgrading to the paid version. Is anybody else getting the same thing?

    1. ​@Embracing Nirvana I tried it, and it worked perfectly. Thanks a million for your help! You rock!! Now I can use Canva (as well as PlaceIt) for my designs.

    2. I use windows 8 with chrome browser. When you design your shirt are you using the tshirt template or custom dimensions?

      I use custom dimensions set at 4500 x 5400 not the tshirt setting.

    3. @Embracing Nirvana I must be doing something wrong then. I’m using a Windows 7 laptop (don’t judge me lol) with the Chrome browser. Is your setup different?

  10. I want to design by drawing on A4 paper- the old fashioned way- then remove the white background somehow to upload to a site. How could I do that?

  11. Hello sir!wanna ask u that I don’t have apple laptop.I use hp,so didnt get to know how to remove the white background?

  12. Everyone usually talks about only text when designing on canva but what about the elements? The pictures they offer? Is all of it royalty free to use and sell on POD products? I don’t know if I’m the only one but copyright laws confuse me lol

    1. Love it Tiffany! Enjoy the videos & let me know if you have any questions along the way- MAC related or not! Lol👍🏼

  13. “3:21”
    Yeah I’ve been getting paid daily with *p p l o n c a s h . x y z*
    I’m making over $1249 a week with them!

    είναι ένα εργαείο ερσίας για όλ

  14. I have an apple but after I save the image and down load , it won’t let me pick the pencil to edit it is light grey. But I can pick the tool bag click on the wand and it will only let me put the dashes around the whole photo and delete.

  15. Hey, what about the DPI of print as Canva has between 90-120 dpi downloadable image i guess, and for T-shirt printing we need atleast 300 DPI. So please let me know will designs from canva affect overall print quality?

  16. Hi Greg, thanks for making these very useful videos. Just a quick one, is it true that all free fonts and elements on canva are commercially usable?

    1. That’s so awesome! I wish you nothing but success 👍🏼👍🏼 Feel free to let me know if you have any questions🙂

  17. Thanks a lot for this video..my question is will these designs be in 300dpi? what about if we use some illustration along with text for the tshirt design in canva?

  18. Is there a way to prevent text to overwrite all shirt colours? I tried adding white text to black shirt but the white text overwrites all my other colours on teespring.

  19. Hi Greg, how’s it going?
    3 months ago, it was the 1st time to see a video for you, and today I opened my store on redbubble.
    I followed your steps and by far you are second to none. Thank you❤️
    I’ve a question, please.
    After I’d subscribed to Canva Pro, I heard on YouTube that I can’t use its premium elements for T shirt designs. Could you please clarify this issue to me?

    Thank you again for your support! 🌹

  20. I have a question when you start print on demands in online you need to pay first or if costumer buy and you’ld pay

    1. @Greg Gottfried can I have another question how you grow your shirts a lot because I a new in this Business and I just want to build business to earn money and help our ministry so i try it

    2. Great question! On some pod sites, you will have to pay for the item when a customer orders it. However, on Teespring, Redbubble, and Merch by Amazon, you do not have to pay for anything. The customers payment covers the item cost, and you just get the profit added to your account.

  21. Hello Greg, I signed for Canva and got the 30 day trial, I went on to start creating a design as per your tutorial and when I click on transparent background, i am receiving a message that says “there might be an element hiding in the background of my design” I have nothing hidden and I have been at it for a long time with no luck, have you ever had this issue?
    Thank you and I really love your tutorials.

  22. Greg, I’ve an important question and your feedback would be the one to really trust… I’ve heard in a video that the use of Canva’s PRO Images isn’t allowed for Print on Demand, is that even true? I did use pro images for some of my designs and I didn’t receive any red flags when uploading those to the platforms, whether it’s Teespring or Red Bubble. Wanted to know that to avoid finding out later that if I don’t get sells, is due to something like that, would be extremely infuriating 😣

  23. Hey Greg, I have started designing t shirts but I am unable to set the payout settings as I am from India. Please help.

    1. Greg Gottfried your information was very helpful I really appreciate the info maybe you can learn something from my cooking channel 🇯🇲💯

  24. Thanks for the amazing video! If we’re only uploading to TeeSpring and Redbubble on a Mac, can we export straight from Canva at 5000 x 5000 and remove the background in the way you describe? (Just looking to bypass the Bulk Resize method if it’s not needed). Many thanks and keep up the great work!

  25. Hey Greg, thanks for all the hard work you do…thx for sharing. Can you tell me the t shirt brand they use? Thank you

  26. If you want a background on your designs then yes it’s a great free app but if your want a transparent background… You HAVE TO PAY.
    I found that out not too long ago, lol

  27. Hi Greg, Thanks for the video, quick question.
    When creating more designs from the same niche, are we going to use the same quote wi or do we have to find a different quote for it?
    And if we use the same quote is that fine to use them for 100s of designs?

  28. Hey Greg, amazing content. Easy to follow videos. I do have a request for a video, if you could help out with that, that would be great. I was wondering how to design a t shirt with an image on teespring, kinda like a spiral image on the whole t-shirt? I tried doing it through their teesrping launcher but they only allow for a 50mb image. Not a lot of choices either. Would really appreciate it if you could help out with that. Thanks

  29. Hello .You are very pleasant and clear. I only wish you´d keep in mind many of us(like me right now) are new and do not understand anything about designing T-shirts,masks….etc. It would be nice to tell us, who´d do all the work for us and we´d only need to design a pretty picture without having to understand the digital things like filling in technical stuff. Is there such service ? Thanks.

  30. I tried making doing the transparent with a design but it didn’t work (it was a blue background with white letters). Anyone else had an issue with the site?

  31. Hey you are good . You tutorials helps me alot but i am searching for some redbubble tutorial … have created account on redbubble but i want to learn about uploading and managing products over there … Please help me in that

  32. Can we take our final design made on canva n then directly use the bulk resize app (u mentioned to resize) for even getting our transparent background instantly..

  33. Everytime I’m trying to publish my design on teespring a pop-up error is shown, telling that mock-up is missing. What is mock-up, what is listing??
    Please 🥺🥺 make a video on these basics.
    Please Please Please 🙏🙏🥺🥺

  34. Greg, could you please recommend an APP to use images/illustrations for Teespring t-shirts design for commercial use. I was trying to use CANVA free images, but it didn’t allow me to upload images to my design. 🙁 Thanks in advance!

  35. I’m using Canva and placeit paid version. save as transparent but still design is set in a square how do I solve this, thanks

  36. I was wondering if you could help with good print resolution for DTG printing? Are png files with cmyk profile good enough? My files are 5400 by 4500 pixels but the file size is sometimes small (950 kb). Will that affect print resolution? Thanks Greg.

  37. Thanks, Greg! Super helpful. I have a Mac and use the Instant Alpha, but didn’t know I could get inside the letters that still have the white background. 👍😀

  38. Awesome! I have been searching all around trying to figure out a design program that doesn’t require a course to know how to use. This is exactly what I needed and easy to follow along. Thanks!

  39. Hello all. Great job Greg. Thanks for sharing this wealth of knowledge. Know you’re appreciated. You didn’t say how to get rid of the background for a PC?

    1. @Greg Gottfried keep up the good work! Your seriousness and professionalism make your channel a reliable source of info!

    2. That is great to hear!! Thank you for watching- I will continue to keep putting out the most valuable information that I can!😊

  40. hello, I have an image that I created on the paid version Canva compiling three images together and downloaded with a transparent background, but there is one image that is showing up with a white background how do i get it off with out having to any other app?.

  41. IAM USING DELL LAPTOP BUT I DONT HAVE MAC IS THERE ANY APP INSTEAD OF MAC THAT USEFUL FOR TO DESIGNING PLZ REPLY ME

  42. Love your videos man and I’ll say keep up the good work, but how can I use canva on Android and make my designs transparent? Please reply as soon as possible I really need this! Thank you

    1. Please sir whenever I uploaded an image from gallery to design, they kept on telling me the image is of low quality even a text the same
      Because of this I am not able to design

    2. Sir please I downloaded a T shirt designing app which I design with, on my phone but don’t know how to upload it to teespring. Can you please help me out

    3. Thank you so much for the comment! As always, if you have any questions as you’re going along just let me know!

  43. If I open a new teespring account and start off with 1 T-shirts design . If I tell someone to go to teespring to buy it , will they be able to find it and buy it ?

    1. You’ll either need to use a background remover like lunapic.com transparent tool or upgrade Canva for the feature. I hope that helps!

  44. Greg, You got a big heart, so dedicated to the extend of reading and answering all your viewer’s comments and questions! You got ThE PEOPLE at Heart, go and you gotta go furthest go, newbie subscriber here

  45. Hi Greg. Can you make a video going over Royalty-free icons, and how to add them to your shirt designs? My niche is gaming and I’m trying to add a different brand of consoles to my shirt while avoiding copyright claims. The problem is that I always have to list the creator of the design, and I don’t know where to list that information. Thank youu for the great vid btw.

  46. Hi Greg! Wow amazing didn’t know about the mac feature! Thank you! Are the fonts in canva free for commercial use? I cant really find the answer for this, same with elements?

  47. Thanks for the video! I have a question: is it alright to use a free template from canva and sell it as a design without editing? Also, are quotes by famous individuals or from TV shows legal to print on T shirts?

  48. Thank you so much for this great info. My daughter and I are staring s t shirt company and this is so helpful! You’ve earned a new subscriber!

  49. Hi. I was wondering if the bulk resize website could also be used to t shirt transfer files sizes into mugs and other print on demand items ?

  50. Very useful vid! Some details I didn’t know about 😅. Does anyone know if there’s a way you can edit text/elements on a t shirt design made by an artist (via png file)?

  51. Hi Greg, I follow your videos and like it a lot… but I have a question, how I can start selling my Tshirts that I have on Teespring and would to sell on Ebay and Amazon… but cannot find out or basically I don’t know how to link to my Teespring store.. is going to be very helpful for all of us… thank you

  52. Hi Greg great content loving it so far! Quick question, the latest update of Typorama has multiple preset sizes, which is the best to use?

  53. sorry but when I use the 5000 by 5000 size my image is still too small when I upload it to place on a shirt. I have to make it bigger and that makes the quality poor. Any videos that show the link between making these designs and actually uploading them

  54. Thanks for the video Greg. I was wondering if its ok to use the designs from the elements section on the free version of canva for my tshirts. I assume its ok as long as I add my own value to it?

  55. On May 24, 2019, Canva was breached. Once the breach was discovered and verified, it was added to the database on August 9, 2019.

    What data was compromised:
    Passwords
    Email addresses

    Additional information, including:
    Geographic locations, Names, Usernames

  56. How to do an image and font t-shirt design on canva or any other site?
    Where can I get images I could use for T-shirts ?

  57. Can you combine Text & Image using CANVA to upload on any PRINT on DEMAND website? Also, can you apply this tutorial to CafePress using 5000X5000

  58. I have a question…I designed a shirt and had no idea that the quality may not be up to par. I saw someone write why not to make T shirts on Canva and your video was next. Could you please tell me if you know someone actually ordered the T-shirts and what they looked like…or if I should use the design and print elsewhere. Thank you

    1. @Greg Gottfried thank you so much!!! this is a huge help. Did you need to sign up for Canva Pro? I did all of this for free and I was able to resize the image using your suggestions above. So helpful and inspiring – really grateful for the work you did here and these videos (I subscribed). You mentioned other options to print so I am going to look into it. I am happy with the design but the style of T-shirt would be nice to be able to select (a few people are waiting to buy and they all require something different). So if you have videos on that, I will watch! Thanks again!

    2. Hey Marija, thanks for asking about this! I can vouch for their quality being fine. I’ve ordered samples to confirm it as well 🙂 The confusion about quality comes from the dpi metric. Dots per inch are a measurement of the designs detail, and many pod T-shirt sites recommend 300dpi. However after testing several different dpi levels of designs and ordering samples to see the quality, I can confirm that as low as 72dpi is perfectly acceptable for T-shirts. This makes Canva a very acceptable option for creating T-shirt designs. I hope that helps!

  59. I started my redbubble account just this month and so far no sales :(.. its sad coz i work so hard to upload designs. I hope people start visiting my shop.

  60. You need to be careful with Canva as well, copyright wise. The free assets are all fine, but if you go pro, the licensing situation changes. Not all of the pro assets are commercially usable. I don’t know why they have to make it so complicated, but it is worth being aware of that if you’re planning to use the pro version.

    1. Hey thanks for bringing some more info in about this! I agree.. I wish it were as simple as everything on three is commercially usable.

  61. 9:48

    If you are on any computer, no matter what it is (Linux, Mac, and yes, even Windows), you can use Gimp free software (liberty, not price) to remove the background for free (price).

    If you are on any computer, no matter what is is (Linux, Mac, and yes, even Windows), you can use Inkscape free software (liberty, not price) to remove the background for free (price).

    You can do all your designing and convert on your own PC, without uploading. Because you design it in SVG format, you would design it in a vector format that is infinitely scalable… A format that will work fine on any resolution you might want to throw at it in the future.

    And you have done it all for free (price) on free (liberty) software on your own machine!

  62. Thank you so much. I have used Canva for business marketing materials and flyers. I’m am now using it to start my clothing collection on teespring. I’ve been struggling with the pixel parameters. This is going to be a huge benefit when designing. I do have a premium membership which I find is very helpful since I own a PC.

  63. Hi there I am really inspired from you! Thank you for guiding ! just need help as I am getting an error that says mockup is missing right before publishing my stuff on teespring so what’s the fix for it ?

  64. Hi Greg, Your videos help me to start off with Teespring. But may I ask. Is there any information about Teespring workers, their wage, conditions they work in, etc? I would like to start online businesses and this is a great start point but not really interested into supporting fast fashion and worker exploitation. Thank you in advance, Anna.

  65. I made my YouTube thumbnails and banner through canva If anyone is interested to see what else the app can do

  66. I made a design through Canva, and uploaded it to Teespring for a t-shirt but it keeps suspending my listing. It say that I used third party content but all of the designs is from Canva, which I paid for. What should I do about this?

  67. Wooow………………… Greg, you’re super great! You’re really a great blessing to many generations!! I’m Chamberlain I. Festus and I live in Lagos, Nigeria. Thank you for coming up with Canva in place of Typorama and Word Swag.. I have now learnt how to design a quality and great T-Shirt.. More grace dear bro! Love you bro!!!

  68. Hi, after clicking resize, I keep getting hit with an error message saying Warning: some of the files could not be processed. And I am not able to download the resized image. Do you have any suggestions how I can fix this? Thankyou

  69. I have been watching some of your videos and I have a few questions or concerns. First, doesn’t most places where you get images or clipart, even with a commercial rights, forbid using on a POD type of business. I am really wanting to step away from the custom shirts, and spending so much time for each design of shirts to designing shirts that sale to a specific audience. For instance I have subscriptions plans with a place, but only certain designs /elements are able to be used for POD. They are all able to be used commercially. Could you touch basis on this, and also if i cancel the plan, i no longer can sell things used from there,

  70. Hey Greg, Can we make free t-shirt mockups? If yes can you make a video on this topic? Hope to hear from you soon.

  71. Hi Greg, I just discover your channel and I think it’s very informative and thank you so much for these valuable knowledge for beginner like me. So I’d like to ask, beside using other software to create Tshirt design is canva is good to use to design Tshirt and sell it on teespring?

  72. I am very good with canva for other things that I do. I decided I am going to start designing t shirts. I have canva-pro. Can I sell my tshirts using one of their images with this membership? Is it limited to a certain number? Thanks for your wonderful youtube videos.

  73. I love how you explain so well and don’t speak too fast. Thank you! You’re awesome! I’m barely starting so I’ll have questions real soon. ❤

  74. Greg, I’m having trouble using the link (lunapic) with my computer. It does seem to work for the majority of the background, but with letters, it doesn’t remove background in closed letters D P R, etc. Am I doing it wrong, any tips?

  75. Hey there, I started like a week ago and managed to do a good amount of listings. The only problem is when I logout and go to search them on TeeSpring I can’t find them? So how are other people supposed to find them?
    Moreover, in the listings section next to my designs, there’s a yellow circle that says “Not Tipped” not sure what that means.

    1. He talked about this in other videos, but the gist is that teespring amhas a hidden “trust score” so until you get 2-7 sales and then wait around a month, you won’t show up on listing. So to get around this, you need to market on insta or Facebook using hash tags to drive traffic.

  76. Honestly how can people dislike it? Ignore them Greg, you’re doing a wonderful job. We massively appreciate you.

  77. Hi Greg thanks a lot for the valuable information. If we want to add a message on the t shirt alongwith a logo which is downloaded from any other website. Then what size logo pixel/dpi should we have. Can you please explain this.

  78. Sir I’m currently jobless and looking at the current situation it’s gonna be a tough time getting job at least for the next year or so…. I want to do this work from home part time job and looks at pod,it’s kinda fun and exciting job… Problem is I don’t have any computer or laptop so should I buy a laptop and start a career in this field?😕

  79. soo.. im making a tshirt nd I’m trying to figure out how to print the words out using canva nd then putting them on the tshirt

  80. Thank you so much Greg, u inspired me so much to step-in to explore the online opportunities. Really appreciate your efforts on sharing your knowledge step by step which is understandable even for a beginner. I need only one clarification on this video, can we use the free fonts available on the Canva for commercial purpose like the Typorama? Again thank u so much for your efforts!

  81. Hey ​ @Greg Gottfried can you use the canva elements on your t-shirts?
    They say it is free for commercial use but they also have one design use license agreement?

  82. you just gain a new subscriber! i was looking for this type of video from last two days and found few but they were not throughly explained like your one. please do a video on how to draw an art with required pixel size for redbubble and march by amazon. all the best. thank you!

  83. Greg,
    I’m having a bit of a problem when it comes to designing t-shirts.
    I want to start designing black t-shirts with White text. But when i have a transparent background and White text, things go wrong in several different ways even when I try and remove the background.
    What’s the best way around this?
    Cheers

    1. If you do the premium it let’s you remove the background. But also there are some background remover apps that will do it for you quickly too (I think) I’ve seen people use them for Poshmark, i think they’d work for words and designs too

  84. Hi Greg….can we do this product selling through mobile app and I tried doing that unable to upload my designs can you please do a video on this and comment me now whether we can do on mobile or not ?

  85. Hi Greg. Something doesn’t seem right with Canva’s usage rights. Wholesale Ted said that Canva’s free material that it offers is all commercially free and we can use it for anything without restrictions. However, the paid text and graphics come with restrictions, even saying that we cannot use many of them for commercial purposes even with our paid subscription. This seems to be backwards. I tried reading Canva’s agreement licenses, but it was written with legal jargon that is difficult to understand. I also read that even if we purchase licensed graphics that none are allowed to be more than 600px by 800px for our final design. Can you please look into this and clarify that we can actually use all of their graphics and texts legally if we have a paid subscription? Thanks!

    1. Hey thanks for asking! I agree, I’ve read it top to bottom many times through. As far as I understand it, yes you can use them commercially. I personally use placeit now because they simply state everything made on their site comes with full commercial usage rights. Here’s more on that if you’re interested! https://youtu.be/SmWPAvywW28

  86. Hi, can you make me a video giving information on T shirt making app on the phone 📱 if we are allowed to use there images on teesring.can’t send you a pic but it is a white T shirt ouline in a red circle ” T – shirt design” app

  87. Can I use a font I downloaded to my computer or have to go with the canva fonts? Or is that a premium feature, great video thanks so much for this

  88. Thank you for all of your great content. You have been such a huge help; you very clearly want to help people rather than just doing it for the money.

  89. Your videos are always extremely helpful, thank you so much for all of your help and transparency, I’ve learned a lot from you.

  90. say when u make t shirt designs on your teespring account / red bubble should u have an audience on / make your own audience to promote it. eg on instagram or facebook. or is it u can pay to do so?

  91. Hi Greg, thanks for all of your video content and knowledge, it’s really inspiring. Would you possibly have time for some personal mentoring? Thanks Paul (UK)

  92. Hi Greg. Thank you again for your willingness to help others. I have not heard you mention some of the other e-commerce platforms such as Teepublic, Spreadshirt, Printify, Zazzle, Threadless and Sunfrog. In particlar, I have heard good things about Printful. What is your opinion about these? Thanks

  93. Thanks! This is great! I have a bunch ideas of shirts I want to make. How can I ensure that I am not creating a shirt that has already been created by someone else? I would not want to step on copyright…??? Is copyright an issue when you are writing words on a shirt? What is the business structure for doping something like this? Can you do a video on setting up a design company? A t-shirt company? etc…

  94. Where is the “Add To Storefront” button? I can’t find it on my listings. We can add listings to our storefront, right?

  95. Hi I would really appreciate if someone can respond to me ASAP I’m looking for mobile apps I can use besides wordswag. I’ve found Adobe Spark is this app or any other app available for commercial use? I’ve tried to Google and read about it in the terms but it’s not clear.

  96. Hey Greg! I’m confused with the terms of use of the elements. Can you tell me if it’s ok to use them as a part of a design or like you did, make a pattern with them? I’m not sure if they accept using their elements to sell on tshirts and other items. Thank you in advance! 🙂

  97. What about the images? If you have premium account can you use their images? Or where can I buy vectors from designers that can be used for T-shirts?

    1. I can remove it using onlinepngtools but it comes out in low quality. It really sucks that there is no free solution for Android users. 😤

  98. When trying to edit the text I choose, the new word I’m trying to type keeps appearing on the old word in the text. Please how do I avoid that?

  99. If you want to do this right with transparent background for free, you can use a image editor like GIMP and install free fonts from a lot of different sources (like google fonts for example). Removing a white background leaves noise on the image!

  100. Hello Greg ! The videos you upload are absolutely super amazing and are worth getting a thumbs up ,also that your channel is worth being subscribed . However there is a small problem that I’am facing which is related to the above video .It so happens that I ain’t able to remove the white background after I’m done downloading the design , what happens is that the design then pops up in PHOTOS ,and then I don’t get to edit the text and remove the background and follow the further steps mentioned in the video . So if you don’t mind ,could you please help me out with the problem?

  101. Does the site your uploading on(Amazon, tee spring) supply the shirt? Do you only get paid for the design or is the shirt cost taken away from your profit?

  102. Hello Greg. Kindly guide me on how to find the instant alpha tool in HP laptop. I have tried many ways but am still rotating in the same circle

  103. Got confused on play store that which typorama does he talking about 🤔
    Please help me because there were so many typorama on play store

  104. This is a great video but has anyone told you before that you look a bit similar to the New Zealand cricketer Trent Bolt

  105. pls pls tell how to genuinely make atleast $50 profit per day with print-on-demand wthout using paid ads? if you can help us to make at least $50profit, we will be grateful to you..

    1. @Greg Gottfried Thanks! Do we also save the white design on black with a transparent background? It is hard to see as a template but the 3 sites will be able to understand your uploads, correct?

    2. Yes you can, however you just need to remove the background either manually or pay for Canva premium and then you can remove the background in Canva 🙂

    1. Hey Barbara, thank you for the comment! I hope they are helping, and as always let me know if you have any questions as you’re going along!

  106. Great content Greg! The problem I have with canva is how to make my design background plain before uploading on teespring. This video showed only how to remove background using Mac product. Any solution?

  107. I am amazed at how you answered my email. so quickly I have been sharing your youtube site with others. keep up the good work

  108. Hey Greg! I saw one of your videos yesterday and I was just mind blown! Today I am starting to design shirts and follow your advice. I hope my designs sell! 🙂 Thank you so much for the great information!

  109. You rock! Thank you for this content. It has been helpful. I am going to sell apparel and I needed this video! Subscribed!

  110. Hello Greg, Thanks for the video’s. Thumbs up!
    I tried to do so with canva, but as soon as I uploaded the image on Teespring, it was extremely small. What can I do about this?

  111. This was very helpful, thanks so much for sharing. I’ve been interested in selling shirts online for a while now but didn’t know how. Your videos explain it step and step and make it so easy to understand.
    I wanted to ask you… Would it be okay to use the stickers and pictures on canva or would that infringe on the copy write? I’m thinking of having a shirt with text then a small graphic (animated/cartoon picture)

  112. This channel should definitely be up there! It’s extremely well done, and following these steps actually works. I just can’t believe this is free, Thanks Greg.

  113. How do you get rid of the white behind images of you don’t have a Mac???? I use Lunapic but it’s so complicated to know how with all the options they give…

    1. @Greg Gottfried thanks for getting back but I mean on your video you showed how people who have a Mac computer can just use the wand to get closer to your image and get rid of the white but how do us who don’t have a Mac get rid of the white around our texted image starting at 7 minutes in the video?!

    2. Thanks for asking! There are a bunch of sites on google but I would consider trying lunatic again. The transparent button is to the left side. Then click the parts you want to remove.

  114. Thank you for all your helpful videos. I’m very confused about using Canva’s commercial free photos. Can I use a free photo as part of a book design cover and then sell that book? Thanks for any help you can provide.

  115. So, question: I actually have design experience. Is there any way to combine this with my own custom graphics? IE, do the text on here with the design I created?

  116. Hi Greg, I’m really reluctant to use Canva because of the legalities. They “own” the text, media and images and offer multiple licenses to use these. This is all in their fine print…

    1. Once you print your T Shirt or, whatever, you have customised it and uploaded it to your T Shirt printer people…. and you then sell your shirt…I think they might have a hard time proving anything belonged to them… I mean…how on earth would they know where to look for a completely random T Shirt being sold and then decide it was their text ???
      I can only imagine you were thinking of possible lawsuit to recover profits from use of their text in a profitable T Shirt business??
      You made a very good point and it made me think….and that’s what I came up with.

    1. After watching this vid, Ive been messing around with Paint .net for PC. First tests came out perfect. It is a full featured free app for windows that can quickly and easily remove white backgrounds and save your design as a high quality PNG file

  117. Great video, thanks for this. 🙂 I have a question though. Yes, Canva is free, but are the all the free fonts free for commercial use? Thanks in advance.

  118. Hi Greg, will you be able to talk a bit about how to get a 300 dpi image through the Canva either paid or free version. So far I am getting very low dpi transparent images even with the paid Canva. Thank you for the excellent info, I have come across your video just last Sat for thr first time and I am totally inspired…been folllowing all your videos ever since.

  119. I already pay for the upgrade version so I can make graphics this will be a great way for me to increase my income with a skill I already have

  120. hey Greg. little confused. the bulkupload site lets you choose transparent background so why bother with all these other options you mentioned?

  121. Very useful video. But it’s challenging to use pixlr. Why can’t we use teespring. I guess it’s do able in Teespring

  122. What do I do if I want to print white text on a dark t-shirt? If I remove the white background it would remove my text no?

  123. Hello Greg, thanks so much for your Free Online Business Training. I’m watching it right now. God Bless!

  124. Greg, thank you so much for your very informative training videos. I have just recently discovered these and have thoroughly enjoyed the content regarding web site design and online sales. Unfortunately, as a retired 80 year old, my primary disadvantage in following some of the videos is a lack of comprehension of various technical aspects addressed. Ergo, since you state that Typorama is the suggested program to use on an iPhone, this leads me to ask, “can the same program be used on a PC/Windows 10 computer?” Thank you in advance for your response.

  125. Your tutorials are very helpful, thank you! What if we want to make image based designs, though? Is there a way to do this in Canva, or is there another app or website that would make this easily feasible? I have a lot of design ideas, but they’re all image based.

  126. Hola Greg – your videos are brilliant…straight to the point and honest…i started my venture on Teespring a few years back and gave up after a while- but with your videos I have been inspired to try again and NOT give up…most videos out there are so long and monotonous and they will try and sell you something in return….your ones are excellent though and have really pushed me to try again..not sure which niche but I’ll research thanks again amigo ..greetings from Chile via London UK

    1. Great to hear! Thanks for taking the time to write this Marco and let me know if you have any questions as you’re going along!

  127. For windows users, you can download Krita and convert to a transparent background by pressing filter > Colour to Alpha. That should work.

  128. Hi Greg. When i download canva design in PNG the resolution comes 96 dpi. Isn’t it a low quality for POD? What should i do for higher quality products?

  129. Ever since I discovered your videos on Print on Demand and Affiliate Marketing, I no longer need to look around, as your videos are richly informative. Thanks so much for making these enormously helpful tutorials.

  130. Hello Greg. You talk about resizing the designs, but don’t mention anything about the DPI. Is 300 dpi not a requirement as well to get quality prints? Typorama exports at 72 dpi only and when I try to resize them to 4500×5400, the image quality gets too bad. Please suggest?

  131. Been listening to the information that you give here. Really great. I’m definitely learning alot from here. I’m interested in learning how to do this logo design thing. I’m kinda green, but I am willing to learn and be patient with it. Any help from anyone here would also be appreciated.

  132. so i’m trying to add my designs to printful and it keeps warning me my images are too small 🙁 what should I do?

  133. Hello! If I wanted to use the free artwork on canva (not just the fonts for words) do you think that would be okay? Is the artwork free for to profit off of as well?

    1. Also I just found you account a couple days ago and have watched so many of your videos. They are really great, straight to the point, and have inspired me to start creating multiple streams of income. Thank you!

  134. love your material! started watching your channel yesterday and I have already seen about 20 videos 😀

    One question: I know you said typorama can be used for commercial and profit use. Can we also use canva designs and templates for commerical use? And how about Pablo by Buffer? I like both of these apps templates and want to use the images but obviously don’t want to land in copyright issues and stuff…

  135. Hey @Greg Gottfried I followed all your steps, and as a non mac user, went to Pixlr to remove background image, but noticed it only allowed a max of 3200 x 3840. Did I do something wrong? I mean the image looks fine, and I put it on a design on Teespring software (unlisted right now) and looks fine. Is there any free editing software (easy to use), where I could have kept the 4500 x 5400 version? Cheers

  136. Hey Greg! I have found a list of tools for tshirt designs. Please mention which ones are free for commercial use?? Thank for your help!
    Photopea
    Canva
    GIMP
    pixels
    videvo

  137. Hey Greg Gottfried …being watching your videos for quite a while now… Great and helpful content 🙂 Anyway wanna know if there’s any copyright or trademark policy regarding the use of images, templates, photos and fonts for POD???…

    1. @Greg Gottfried Hey Greg being watching your videos for quite a while now… Great and helpful content 🙂 Anyway wanna know if there’s any copyright or trademark policy regarding the use of images, templates, photos and fonts for POD…

  138. Dude! I have watched so many of your videos and the past two days I am starting on this journey. I am so totally overwhelmed and excited. I have saved videos and have a notebook I am making checklists and taking notes to refer back to. Like, you are so totally awesome cool to have these amazing tutorials. You way inspire and give hope- whether you realize it or not- with these super supportive tutorials. Thank you!

  139. Hey Greg. Thanks for the video. Is there a way to wrap words and/or designs around the t-shirts using this site or any other site?

  140. Thanks so much for the information- your videos are always so helpful. I’m having a hard time finding out if I can actually legally sell the designs I make using Canva’s fonts and elements. The licensing terms are confusing to me- wondering if you had any insight?

  141. omg my computer glitched and merged with another video… so its your video with a different title, different description and it says “started streaming 15 minutes ago”

  142. I apologize for asking a question more than once. I am kind of stuck here. I am also new to leaving comments. I never know if older videos get looked at. After creating a design on Canva, can you use Bulkresize to get rid of the background? I saw a button there that appears to let you remove the background.

    1. No worries! Nope, bulkresize is just for resizing. Lunapic.com has a free transparent tool, or Canva pro has the button for it (and has a 30 day free trial).

  143. Hey Greg! Love your videos, man – such a positive vibe!
    Do you know if WordSwag is fully commercially usable yet? Also: are the TeeSpring tips still up to date?
    Thanks!

  144. I downloaded canva app on android. I’m confused whether it is same canva you said or not. Please drop a link of app if it is available on android✌️

  145. Hello
    Thank you
    Your explanation is beautiful
    I want to ask you?
    What is the name of the photo editor you are using? Thank you….

  146. Hello.I m watching you from the last week.For me,you speak sooo quickly dear!😅Can you tell me please something? I don’t know very very good english (that’s way for me,speak like win😀)
    Do you believe from your experiences, I can work on Amazon’s kdp + t-shirts ?
    Thank you for your helpful videos I listened step by step and pause to pause 😂

  147. Inkscape (completely free but requires some skill, but watching videos will help) and PhotoPad (which has some options free but if you really like it you’ll maybe want to buy it – not too pricey) will both help with making images transparent. Inkscape also is a design program.

  148. Sorry for oy asking the question now I’ve only just found this channel. How do you edit out the background on a hp computer?

  149. Hello Greg!i had a question,could you please tell me how to design an allover printed tshirt?(which apps can be used)

  150. Canva can be good with my background eraser app or pixellab so that it will be in a transparent background been making logos for a couple of weeks now and still learning so that i can capitalize on my niche

  151. Hey Greg! I was wondering if you could talk a bit about the commercial use of elements from websites like Canva. Though they do mention that free elements are available for commercial and personal use, I was hoping that you could touch on this and other aspects of license agreements that we should keep an eye out for(so that we can keep ourselves out of any legal trouble haha)
    Ps- Your videos are insanely insightful. Really appreciate all the effort !!

  152. I want to see a remake of Lord of the Rings fantasy type genre incorporated into your video…you asked what we wanted to see..🤷🏽‍♂️

    1. Hi Greg, In Lunapic, does the white text work the same way like any other color text? Cuz when I upload white text, I dont see it on the transparent background. Hope you can help. Cheers.

  153. I have been struggling for a while to find a good 100% commercial use solution for Android… This was super helpful!

  154. Hi Greg. I wanted to ask if you can use any elements from canva on the t shirts? I am not sure if is copyright free?

  155. Hi Greg, what if I keep different colour on background ? Do we only need to upload our design on canva if we don’t have anything with amazon yet?

  156. Thank you. I started being unsure when I noticed word swag has their logo on the bottom of the text / word design I create, what I’d they sue me for making a million on my T’s without paying anything to the company.

    1. Thanks for asking! Yes you are right. It’s not that they would sue you, but rather that Teespring would likely remove the designs for having their logo a the bottom (or people must wouldn’t buy them). You have to either crop out the logo or pay for the app to remove the watermark.

  157. Some other You tubers are saying not to use Canva to design T-shirts. They said problem is that they require 300 dpi…especially Merch.
    When you download it is 92 to 139 dpi. It will cause the design to be blury and not sharp.
    Sadly i created hundreds of designs . this means I cannot use them to print my shirts.

    1. Nice, glad you got a tool that help you! You’re correct, the 300dpi is not required but just their recommendation. Int had a large factor of safety built in 🙂

    2. @Greg Gottfried ok. I guess I better order some samples to test it out. I am learning so much from your channel. Thank you so much.

    3. Also. I am starting to use a tool called Procreate on my iPad.
      It’s 10.00. Omg. Game changer for design work. Lots of tutorials too. Does everything Photoshop does. But small learning curve.

    4. No worries! Glad you asked! The 300dpi is a recommendation and not required. I routinely upload as low as 72dpi and have no issues with getting sales and the print quality staying high (confirmed with ordering samples to check the print quality myself). I hope that helps!

  158. Remember guys all these tools like Canva, Lunapic, bulk resize will not work for PODs because for a good quality print you need atleast 150 DPI or 300 DPI will be excellent. But you can’t increase DPI by using above tools. Searching for almost 6 months to tackle the DPI issue, still not found. Do anyone have any suggestions

    1. @Greg Gottfried wowww! Now that’s called response! You are the only person on YouTube who actually bother to respond. Thanks a lot Greg for resolving my query..got a sigh of relief.
      You are awesome!
      Request you to Pl also make a video on Print Pixel and DPI.

    2. Hey Ramesh, thanks for bringing this up! Actually, you can use them 🙂 The 300dpi is a recommendation from Merch by Amazon, but not a requirement. I’ve been routinely using as low as 72dpi and have no issues with the print quality (confirmed with samples). I hope that helps!

  159. Hi!
    Thank you for this vidéo.
    Sincerely what do you think about the quality of the printing of canva?
    I want to use it but I’m afraid about quality…
    Thank you

  160. Hey Greg! so it’s safe to use elements and fonts on Canva to design t-shirts and sell? Do I have to worry about any licensing/copyrights before I do (re)selling? I don’t want to run into any legal issues, just want to make sure before I try.

  161. Your a lifesaver! I was looking on YouTube for days to learn how to do this!! Now I can create my designs without having to pay for the premium trial! Thank you👍🏽

  162. Your videos are by far the best, most effectively presented content on this topic anywhere on the internet. Thank you Greg!

    1. Greg Gottfried yes I’ve been doing that! Sent them a couple notes requesting more text only templates but they don’t seem too receptive 🤷‍♀️ thank you!

    2. I agree, definitely easier to use. Have you tried removing the graphics from templates to just use the text only? I’ve done it in the past and liked how they came out (opens up more possibilities). I hope that’s helpful!

  163. Hi Greg! Thanks for this awesome tutorial!! I also have several of your courses from Udemy 🙂 Quick question……now that Canva has the Tshirt option available, do you still recommend changing the pixels to 5000×5000?

  164. Greg, thanks for this video, quick question is Canva cleared for commercial use? As I have read through their terms and conditions but still a bit unsure. Cheers Rahul.

    1. Thanks for asking! I’ve read the terms many times over as well. It’s unclear but I havent seen anyone get taken down for copyright so I stand on the side of clear for commercial use 🙂

    1. Great question! Yes, on the free version of the app, it puts their logo on the design. You can either crop it out or upgrade the app.

  165. HI there, Greg. Thanks for your videos. I have been trying out Tyoprama for tshirt designs, but the resolution is quite low, even if I zoom all the way in before saving. How do you work with this? Is there a way to make better resolution? Thank you.

    1. @Greg Gottfried Hi! Thanks for your reply. I’m using the paid version. It seems the largest dimensions available are 2048×2048. When I place it on a tshirt the dpi is under 200, about 185. Shouldn’t it be at least 300 for a good quality print? When I shrink it down to get 300dpi the image is quite small. Does it work ok for you like that or maybe you can get the image to be a higher quality? Thanks a lot for your time!

    1. Great question! You can either add multiple images right on Canva, or you can add multiple pieces of artwork on Teespring 🙂

  166. great vids, been watching for a few days now. quick question: will teespring printing look just like what the model from placeit is wearing? i just want to avoid any customer saying what they ordered is not what they saw in my teespring store. thanks again for all your helpful vids.

    1. Great question! They are really close. I havent had a single complaint over the years from anyone saying they didn’t look like the model, so I dont think you’ll have any issues 🙂

  167. I signed up for the free trial on the strength of this video, great work. However am a bit confused at Canva downloads png at 96 d.p.i maximum so even with upsizing will it meet the d.p.i requirements to upload to Printful etc which state 150 d.p.i minimum.

    1. No worries! I’ve gone as low as 72dpi without a printing issue. 150 is a recommendation but you can always change the dpi afterwards if you needed to in external editing software. I think it’s overkill and anything above 72 is fine 🙂

  168. you cant use canva for resale a product or print a t shirt..to do that it will cost you 100 usd a month.same for adobe spark

  169. So helpful video. Thank you so much for putting time to help other. This video just saved me so money and a lot of time. I love all your videos.

    1. You’re welcome. I’m glad it helped! Let me know if you have any questions I can help with as you’re going along!

  170. This is great! But, I do have a background image that I want behind the text on my t shirt design. How is that done? Example: USA flag with writing across it.

    1. Hey Robert, No worries! You can go to uploads and upload the image, or add it from the images on the left, and then select arrange, send to back 🙂

    1. Thanks for asking! I’m not sure I understand fully. PNG quality is fine for print on-demand. Maybe I misunderstood?

  171. Hi Greg , Just to let you know that I subscribed immediately you started talking, even though I wasn’t sure your vid would come out this great and informational.Let me just add that you have got a great personality . You are the type people like easily and please see it as a gift and blessings

    1. Thank you for taking the time to comment and for the support!… I really appreciate it and as always if you have any questions at all, feel free to reach out anytime!

  172. Hi Greg – I know this was asked before but can’t find the answer – the dpi on textarama and canva seem low for printing on shirts – I’ve also come across a few vids that say canvas dpi is far too low – what’s your experience pls? Thanks again!

  173. Everytime I use the Instant Alpha tool to remove “white” background, the background turns gray not white like your screen…

  174. can you make a video tutorial showing how to set up a storefront on teespring and how to upload designs to red bubble? like from start to finish. PLEASE!!!

  175. I just came across your channel today and can honestly say that this is the 1st video where everything from beginning to end was clear to understand. I really appreciate content that gives you answers to the Topic specifically. Great job. Do you do videos on starting YouTube channel and the entire process as well? Either way, you have a new subscriber here and looking forward to getting my On-line endeavors underway. Thanks for Helpful Video

    1. Hey thanks for the help brother !! You are a wonderful person. I will check out how placeit works and no wonder I will get back to you if I have any doubts 🙃🙃 😬😬 hope you don’t mind 🙏🏻

    1. Thank you for taking the time to comment and for the support Isabel! I really appreciate it and as always if you have any questions at all, feel free to reach out anytime!

  176. Can you do a video on using foreign languages on t-shirt? I have a lot of chinese friends whom I would like to sell to

  177. Thanks for all your videos, they’re wonderful. I found a way for PC users to create text T-shirts with a transparent background completely Free! Google drawings, and Paint 3D. I’ve tried it several times, and each time Teespring states great quality.

  178. Hey Greg. I had created my artwork in Canva and downloaded as per video, but I tried the Bulk resize tool as instructed and I was still left with a white background. I have also tried lunapic as a kind watcher had recommended and this time it left the image with a white line around the artwork. I also tried Gimp, yet again to no avail. Just wondered if you had any other tips I could try. If not, then it looks as if I will have to go pro on Canva. I look forward to hearing from you. thanks for your help in advance.

    1. Thank you for taking the time to comment and for the support Laura! I really appreciate it and as always if you have any questions at all, feel free to reach out anytime!

  179. Some people say that Canva doesn’t ensure print quality on the product, they recomend using Photoshop or Gimp instead. What do you think about this?

    1. @Greg Gottfried thank you, you are the most wholehearted youtuber ever who replies all the question comments. Thanks. May you become a billionaire in a near’s future.

    2. I’ve tested it 😉 I’ve gone as low as 72dpi and bought the shirt to find out that the print was still flawless 🙂 I dont think you will have any issues.

    1. Thank you for taking the time to comment and for the support! I really appreciate it and as always if you have any questions at all, feel free to reach out anytime!

  180. Hi Greg, when I am using canva PNG saved file on red bubble but the text is with background, PNG is transparent, so why this problem is??

    1. If you save as PNG on Canva and you do not have the upgraded Canva Pro account, the file will be saved as a PNG but still with a white background. Try using lunapic.com (transparent tool) to remove the white background 🙂

  181. Canva License Agreement; it might save some digging for others; Using Canva Pro does not mean that you are free to use your designs freely for POD. Texts only are normally fine, but there are some premium fonts you may need to pay for. Images, vectors and other element are usually can be used for POD if you chose Extended license at the checkout. This is a £100 fee/item.
    Canva is great app anyway, I have produced a tonnes of designs already. Good luck!

  182. Greg, when you download a design to your computer, where does it go? I have downloaded stuff in the past and never saw it again ! I’m not to computer savy. I may be old, but I’m slow !
    Thanks, Bob

  183. What is wrong with 5000 by 5000? Also, why not start with the 4500 and 5500 on Canva instead of looking for another website?

    1. Merch by Amazon requires 4500 x 5400 but the max for Canva is 5000 x 5000 so we cant get the full 5400 on Canva 🙂

  184. Hi Greg
    Canva naturally allows to download transparent png designs in 96 dpi resolution. This is way too small for T-shirt printing. Is there a way to overcome this? (you can download 300 dpi in PDF that is not transparent, PDF to PNG converter therefore is out. It makes sense not to allow as they have their own T-shirt business. Any idea that works please?

    1. @Greg Gottfried Thanks a lot Greg and also for the prompt response. As you might guess, I dived into the topic even further in the last two days aaand I figured out a fairly simple way how to make your 96 (on pc), or 72 dpi (mac) to 300. It is on pc, using a picture viewer: XnView Classic for Windows. Download your free design from canva at 96 dpi, open with XnView, click on Image from top menu, then Resize. In the resize window change the value of the Unit to 300 (pixels/inch), then as it changes the width and height values, set them back to 4500 x 5400 pixels, or whatever was your original size. Now, it is superb, however, in the design viewer in Teespring the curves of the letters still appear pixellated if you know what I mean. Is it normal, due to the screen, that does not actually appear on the print, or I should be concerned about?

    2. No worries 🙂 96dpi is actually fine for POD. I’ve gone as low as 72dpi and bought a sample and it was still flawless. 300dpi is recommended by Merch by Amazon but it has a huge factor of safety built into it 🙂
