Moteefe Live: The best Print on Demand products to sell in Q3
T-shirts, mugs or cushions? What exactly are the best products to be selling during this time? With so many options, it can be difficult to decide which products to include in your store. Having too few options may not attract people to purchase from your store but having too many options may create an overwhelming experience for the customer. So, what should you do?
In this week’s live stream, Thomas Gentleman and Aidan Kessell discuss the best POD products to sell in Q3. This is one live stream you do not want to miss.
Some of the topics they cover include:
- 01:45 – Niches for the summer months
- 03:00 – Summer products
- 09:05 – Scaling your designs
Don’t have 30 minutes to spare? Here’s a summary of what you missed:
Niches for the summer months
It’s pretty warm during Q3 which makes it a great time to experiment with some summer niches. From camping to barbecuing, there are a ton of options to choose from. Not sure what to test? Check out our blog post, Summer campaign niche ideas for Print on Demand.
One product that we highly recommend including in your store this summer is fleece blankets. It’s one product that will definitely be a popular purchase since it’s so versatile. You can use it at night during those summer camping trips or as a blanket for picnics or beach days. Other products you should consider include cushions, t-shirts, tank tops, and singlets.
Scaling your designs
If you have a design that’s showing signs of initial success, get in touch with our team and we’ll help you scale it. We can translate your design to other languages so you can retarget your Facebook ads to areas all over the world. If it has been thriving in one area, chances are, it will perform well in another.
” So designs, designs, designs, the more designs you have, the better chance that you have of finding a winning design. Now, lots of things sell, but winners are winners. You want to find things that work. If it makes them cry, it makes them buy. That’s the key to success.”

Good afternoon, everyone, and welcome to this week’s instalment, where we are going to be going through the best print on demand products to sell in Q3, especially on Moteefe, the place to sell all your goods online with no barrier to entry and no fee to pay. So how are you?
[00:00:20.810] – Thomas
I’m good. I did. Yes. This week’s instalment will be all about Q3. We’ve just entered the Q3 zone.
[00:00:28.830] – Thomas
Oh, yes. That is very rough to tell us what I said. There are there are four quarters to the year. One of them is Q3. One is Q2. One is Q1 one Q4. Now we enter Q3, the 1st of July announces Q3 and it runs all the way through to the end of September the 1st of October. And then we’ll be in Q4. So Q3, it’s right now it’s summer. We’ve got some interesting months for July, named famously after Ghias Julius Caesar, dictator of Rome, who isn’t around anymore.
[00:01:05.780] – Thomas
But if he was around, he would be sending POD products through Moteefe because he was a man of class. And then we have August named after his son, actually. Anyway, there’s more to life than Roman empires, but not for the next two months and then September, where the season slightly changes. So we’ve got two summer months, summer in the northern hemisphere, winter in the southern hemisphere. Interesting fun fact for all of you out there.
Niches for the summer months
[00:01:32.240] – Thomas
Hot. It’s very hot. So what do people like to do when it’s hot? Well, they still wear t shirts. They still wear t shirts. So t shirts are always a great stero evergreen products. Everyone, almost everyone owns a t shirt. So there’s a few out of people out there that don’t own a t shirt. But if they don’t own a t shirt, then they probably own a pillow and we sell them as well or cushion as they now.
[00:01:55.700] – Thomas
So we’ve got two hot months. So what are some of the issues? We’ve got all sorts of things going on. Prices are starting to open back up again. There’ll be people out trying to catch fish fishing as it’s as it’s known, people doing all sorts of outside activities. So take your summer ideas, your summer designs, your summer nature’s barbecuing. That’s a great one is in London. In England, as soon as there’s even a glimpse of sunshine, people have rush out and start to.
[00:02:28.540] – Thomas
Warm up the barbecue, heat up the barbecue. Light it up. So barbecuing is is big. You love barbecue, don’t you?
[00:02:34.770] – Aidan
I don’t think you can’t be a good barbecue.
[00:02:37.330] – Thomas
You can’t beat the good barbecue. Make sure that you cook properly if you are doing it. Health tips. So barbecuing is a great niche. Anything to do with summer is a great niche. T-shirtsts are always great. We have just released an interesting product for some are very interesting on those cool summer evening. So you go out, I think, you know, in the northern hemisphere, certainly in London, in England, you go out and you think, oh, it’s very warm, very warm, but the sun doesn’t set until 10 or 11 o’clock at night.
[00:03:06.750] – Thomas
And you’re out there and you start to get a little bit cooler and you’ll be the oh, well, maybe if only I had a fleece blanket in the middle of summer, then my life would be complete. So we have just released fleece blankets at the height of summer, but the smaller blankets can be used as baby blankets because they are about that size and then the next size up almost a stroller size and then the much larger fleece blanket. But a great product could be a throw, could be a blanket.
[00:03:33.400] – Thomas
People do use them and a great product we’ve just released. So get thinking about fleece blankets because they are certainly a great way to earn some and some money selling some products. Right now. The other products, always cushions are great. We always mention cushions, cushions, cushions, cushions, as they say. Cushions are always great. People have birthdays every day of the year. I think probably somebody has a birthday every day of the year. There must not be that.
[00:03:58.900] – Thomas
We’d know about that if there was one. They donated nicely. So birthdays are always good. So personalised gifts, always great cushions, fleece blankets, T-shirts, tank tops or singlets, as some people call them.
[00:04:17.230] – Aidan
We call it a vest and tank tops is what we got.
[00:04:20.640] – Thomas
Vest is normally warm inside a little bit like a string vest wraps a bit Moteefe is the kids call agressor.
[00:04:32.140] – Thomas
The kids, the kids call it vests. Well, we’ve got to we got to keep on trend. So vests are great. So even Hoodie’s even hoodies can set in the summer. You would be surprised what you can. So don’t be put off by what you’re trying to sell by thinking, oh, it’s too warm out so people aren’t going to aren’t going to buy the normal evergreen product. So it’s much more, again, about the design that you’re putting on it.
[00:04:52.300] – Thomas
So you might think fleece blankets. Oh, well, it’s a bit warm for that. No, actually, it gets cooler. People want them people at home. Some people have air conditioning. So it’s they’re all great. Everything’s a great summer product if you get the right design on it. That’s what I’m trying to say. But the the leading products are always going to be the leading products and you just have to focus in on those summery niches.
[00:05:15.700] – Aidan
Yeah, I just wanted to add in a blanket summer holiday, but I’m going camping this weekend and with my family, I know my mum’s going to be to fleece blankets and I’m going to be bringing one. And I know my aunt is going to be around, that’s all. Yep. So do you think about a campsite? You’ve got all those different families there and they’ll bring in four. And if they do one, this is my camping blanket or something like that, there is there will be sold.
[00:05:43.270] – Aidan
And if you’re in these these countries over there. But in England, I can speak for England. Soon as that sun sets, it gets cold real quick indeed.
[00:05:51.890] – Thomas
Aidan does indeed speak for England as the official spokesperson of England now. Yes. So it does get cold in England. Shock, horror. It also rains in England. It does get warm and we do have those long summer evening. So hoodie’s all of these things people will be carrying with them will be wearing, though. I know there are no there is not. This is a summer product. This is a winter product or the same product. So all the way through the year, of course, the colder it gets, the more people want to buy a hoodie in, the warmer it gets, the more people want to buy it.
[00:06:21.010] – Thomas
Vest, singlet, tank, top, whatever, whatever, whatever strikes you as the best one out of those to pick.

[00:07:50.490] – Aidan
Is it safe to say that the more work and now the more you go out in Q4?
[00:07:55.710] – Thomas
It’s safe to say that if you don’t put in any work at all, you won’t get anything out. So, yes, it’s important that you remember that everything is really targets for everything is is reusable from now on in up into the huge event that is Q4. And the interesting thing about Q3 is after Q3 to Q4, so in just 90 short days, 91, maybe 90 days, depending on how you how you want to count, whether you can’t stay or not, where in Q4 and Q4 is going to be massive.
[00:08:23.020] – Thomas
So. If you need to POD, this is the perfect opportunity to get good Aidan will get you good and it will get you could join the group link in the description. We’re here to help. Of course, we’re always here to help. But you have got 90 days to get good for Q4. Plus, you can make a tremendous amount of sales in this period as well. If you’re so if you’re new, it’s a great time to get in and start learning, start testing, start getting used to it.
[00:08:49.560] – Thomas
And again, all of your agencies, you can be in Q4. If you order had, then you already know that Q3 is an excellent opportunity to keep on pushing right the way through the summer with a great design on an appropriate product put in front of the right people. It’s always going to sell. And if you’ve got anything else about Q3 that you want to drip in, I haven’t.
