5. Publish your product

Once you have published your product, you will be able to edit the title, description, pricing and other details of the listing just as you would with any other Shopify product.

Once your product is live on your site, you'll want to market your store to attract customers.

When orders come in, we'll receive a notification and begin the production process. Once the order has been printed, we'll ship it directly to your customer.

If you have automated emails turned on in your Shopify account, a shipping confirmation email with tracking information will be sent to your customer from your Shopify store.
