About the merch shelf

Teespring has officially integrated with YouTube!

How Teespring works

1. Create

Upload your artwork onto a wide range of products using the Teespring Launcher, choose your profit, customize your listing title and description, and launch your merch. Check out our design resources here.

2. Promote

Add your products to a custom store and share your store link with followers. Add your link to social media and your channel links, plus customize the products displayed on your YouTube merch shelf and channel store.

3. Get paid

Once your orders ship you can withdraw your profit, then it’s on to the next launch! Don’t forget we’ll handle everything for you from order production to shipping and even customer support too.
