Note:  Today’s collaborative blog provides insights on 3 Reasons A Custom Apparel Business Is The Perfect Side Hustle

Today’s remote work environment, fewer hours in many cases, and more people adapting to the entrepreneurial lifestyle create a reason to consider the perfect side hustle. The options are limitless, and the insights below zero in on customized clothing. Most are well aware of the popularity surrounding customized t-shirts and hats. However, while building a known brand, it’s wise to consider various possibilities that complement what is in place to create a standout brand and extra revenue.


3 Reasons A Custom Apparel Business Is The Perfect Side Hustle

What is a custom apparel business?

It’s a business where you create customized apparel for customers. What tends to happen is they want to order clothing with specific things, such as verbiage and designs printed on it. As such, this could be an excellent business idea for you to do on the side. It can potentially transform into the perfect side hustle.

Why? Well, here are three impressive reasons:

  1. Relatively low-cost business idea

An apparel business doesn’t cost a vast deal of money to set up and get everything rolling. Primarily, you have two main expenses:

  • Your apparel supplier
  • Your printing method

With an apparel supplier, you can find places like Heat Press Zone that sell blank clothing ready for you to print on. What’s more, most suppliers offer wholesale prices, leaving the door open to make a profit. You can either buy a printing machine and do everything yourself or outsource a company to do it for you when it comes to printing. In either case, the running costs for this business are almost unbelievably low.  

      2.  It doesn’t require a great deal of effort

Furthermore, this business doesn’t require a considerable amount of effort for you to run. There’s not a massive amount that you need to do other than handle orders, print them, and ship them out. Technically, you could do all of this via a sort of drop shipping method. 

You can order from your supplier but get the order sent to an outsourced printing company that will print things for your clients and then ships them either to you or the client. Alternatively, if you handle things yourself, you have to worry about creating the prints and getting them on the products. Most of this completes via machines and software, so you have very little hands-on work to do. Instead, you can put your attention into marketing the business to generate more customers

     3.  Significant demand for these services

Believe it or not, but there’s a significant demand for custom apparel businesses. It is because there are so many different types of clients you may encounter anywhere you are. 

For instance, businesses might want custom-printed items for their staff. Or, they may foresee custom apparel to hand out at marketing events or sell to customers. Many clothing businesses need a company to provide them with their printed items. 

Similarly, you can get bloggers or influencers that want to sell merchandise to their followers, meaning they find a custom apparel business to handle this for them. They provide the designs, print everything for them, and have merchandise to sell as they please. 

Lastly, you can also get groups of regular people that want custom-printed items. For example, people on stag or hen do’s might want custom t-shirts for everyone to wear. The bottom line is that interest in this business can come in many forms from many different people!

As you can see, there are some compelling reasons to consider this as a side hustle business idea. Perhaps the biggest reason and most exciting is that it’s a profitable idea that can quickly go from side hustle to a big business that makes loads of money. But do know that it takes work, motivation, persistence, and dedication to achieve the income you desire.
