How to Boost your T-Shirt eCommerce Website Results

November 11, 2020


You have a great T-shirts or printed products, you have followers on social media, you have a website, so all that’s left is to sit back and watch the sales roll in, right?

Unfortunately, it’s not that easy!

The reality is that while shifts in the market have lead to more online sales, there is more competition in the marketplace, making it harder for you to stand out and compete on a global stage.

We have reviewed a lot of eCommerce websites and see a recurring pattern of mistakes made, including some of these:

• Rotating image sliders on their home page.
• No clear Call to Action.
• The messaging just focuses on the features, instead of showing the benefits too.
• They try to just sell instead of leading with value.
• The layout of the page just has product images, without showing people interacting with the products, so there is no emotional connection.
• The page layout doesn’t have enough words for Google to rank it!
• Not enough trust-building elements like social proof and credibility elements.
• No clear or easy way to contact you or your customer service team.

They are just some of the reasons why people don’t buy from some eCommerce websites.

One of the keys to have people buy from an eCommerce website is to build an email list and a community around your product offer, then send incentive offers to your list to bring them to your website to purchase.

To boost conversions on your website it takes a lot of effort, and it’s best to split test small changes so you know what works, plus you will want to:

• Let people know the reasons they should buy from you.
• Try to tap into their emotions with your copywriting.
• Prove that other people love your products (using influencer promotion, the imagery on your site, and displaying prominent social proof on your website)
• Give them a clear pathway to purchase your products and removing any distractions.
• Give visitors an easy and seamless purchasing experience on desktop or mobile device.

Here are some kind words from our happy customers

  • Just wanted to say thank you to Greg and the team at Download T-Shirt Designs & Studio 1 for the incredible artwork you have produced for me over the last 9 years. You have consistently amazed me with your creative yet commercial designs and have been instrumental in helping us build our clothing business and go from strength to strength. You are the only team I trust when it comes to t-shirt designs.

  • I have been working with Studio1 & DTD now for nearly 10 years. I use DTD for instant designs plus I use Studio1 because I know that my design jobs will be completed efficiently, without question and with high quality results. Studio1 offers the highest level of experience, not only from my design expectation but thru to my production execution. I would highly recommend Studio1 if you are looking for a design service that will take your business to the next level.

  • We supply the largest retailers in the world with printed accessories, so we need artwork fast so we purchase from Download T-Shirt Designs plus when we need something exclusively we use their parent company, Studio 1's dynamic team, which enables us to achieve world class results in design. From brief to completion, Studio 1 are professional, accessible & efficient. Studio 1 are the perfect extension to our team and go beyond the call of duty to get results.

  • We are a leading Australian surfwear retailer. We have an in-house design team that is struggling to keep up with the demand, so now that we have found you guys it's really helping with our work load. Having a balance between our design studio & your website full of quality T-Shirt designs that are ready to go is the perfect solution for us.

  • Your t-shirt designs are amzing! They are on-trend with current looks & are super value! I have just printed my first range of T-Shirt graphics that I bought from your website & they are selling fast!

    Kids Fashion Supplier
  • Hi, Just wanted to let you know that the last batch of designs that I purchased from your site have been selling extremely well. Sales are up by 300% on my previous batch that another team designed for me.

  • Premiere had previously only used in house design teams, and I found that having a balance between in house design and an outside resource such as Studio 1’s website ( is a breath of fresh air. Greg and the team are well versed at understanding my objectives, however with their knowledge of fashion and ability to forecast trends, the results are normally above and beyond initial expectations.

    Kidswear Supplier
  • We’ve been consistently using Studio-1 for graphics over the past few years, and have never been disappointed. Nothing is ever too difficult, too much of a problem for their team. The designs – whether bought from their existing designs on or briefed in for new art – are always on trend and of the highest calibre. And always with quick turn around too.

    Ryan Smith

  • Nearly 12 years ago I found Studio1. One of my first presentations to major retailers in Australia and New Zealand with Studio1′s artwork had the immediate impact that was needed to get the buyers to sign off on the orders. From that time all those years ago to this day Studio 1 is the only graphic design company we use. I could not recommend Studio 1 anymore highly, not only are Greg and his team incredibly talented but to top it all off they are a great company to work with, nothings too hard, always willing to listen and most importantly always coming up with the goods.
