Are you Xmas ready? 6 products to stock on your store!

Tagged with:

Let’s face it, this year has absolutely flown by and we’ve been left wondering once again how it’s got to autumn already. The countdown to Christmas is officially on which means that it’s time to start stocking your online stores and craft fair stalls with seasonal best sellers. Discover our top 6 Christmas merch ideas for makers.



1) Calendars

We’ve already created a whole host of awesome 2018 calendars for everyone from illustrators to pet photographers, stocking up their online stores in the run up to the festive season. Our team couldn’t make it easier for you to create your own. Simply supply us with your images and we do all the rest!

2) Greetings Cards

The tradition of sending Christmas cards doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere anytime soon. According to the Greetings Card Association, 1 billion Christmas cards were bought in the UK alone in 2016.

Our custom greetings cards make the perfect canvas for your illustrations or designs and come with the added bonus of free envelopes – choose from white, or brown ribbed.

3) Mugs

With the temperature plummeting, there’s nothing better than curling up on the sofa with a steaming hot cuppa served in a custom mug. For those who want that extra caffeine hit, or just want to keep their hands toasty for that little bit longer, try our mighty mugs – They’re 50% bigger than the standard size.

4) Enamel Pins

We only launched our enamel pins at the beginning of the year but they’ve already become a firm favourite with makers across the globe looking to raise their pin game. The relatively low production costs involved in creating these wearable, sellable pieces of art make enamel pins a viable option for both newbies and established players in the merch selling game.

Want to find out more? Check out our Rise of #pingame blog to uncover why pins have become a firm favourite with makers.
