It honestly never occurred to me to create merch. I’d only just learned a few weeks back that Patreon was letting creators sell items to patrons. And I’d been wanting to offer additional perks for a while, so this was amazing news to me. 😃
I made the announcement and then signed up for the Patreon merch option…only to find out that Patreon wasn’t going to make the items immediately available. You have been a subscriber for a few months first.
Obviously, that wouldn’t do, so I went ahead and opened a shop using Teespring. It took me a little while to figure out how to get started and some merch designs were scrapped. But now, I’m proud to say I’ve got items available to buy in my brand new shop!
Things that I’m offering for sale through my shop include:
- Tote bags
- Face masks
- Phone covers
The plan is to begin to offer new items every 5-7 days. As of now, the first theme set of items are part of my “Chronic Tea Spiller” line. Most items come with multiple color choices or alternate versions.
There are other items I’m trying to figure out how to add like book bags, posters, snoods, etc., so expect to see more of those in the future.
I’m already working on other fun concepts and yes, I’ll have Stan Twitter ARMY themed stuff as well! Your girl is mindful of lawsuits and so expect in-jokes and shady fandom-quotes rather than anything blatantly copyrighted.
I’ve got a bunch of stuff in the works, so please be on the lookout for more items coming your way soon!
