The Moteefe Ugly Christmas Sweatshirt Design Tutorial

Step 1

Firstly, Download and install the font file named ‘xmas_sweater_stitch.otf’ from here.

Step 2

Now you’ll need to download the Photoshop file and double click to open. Note: the bottom layer should replicate the Sweatshirt colour. This is to help you visualize how the design will look on the sweatshirt 

Step 3

You’ll see the layer labeled ‘Your Text‘ which is the area you will want to change. Select the Type Tool or Press the T to enable you to type

Top Tip: Depending on the length of the word, you might want to change the size of the ornaments on either side to accommodate the spacing. Press Command T and drag from one corner of the object with the direct selection tool tool to maintain the correct proportions of the shape when adjusting.

Step 5

Now you’ve changed the text, you can add your niche image! You can commission artwork via websites such as Fiverr of if you’d like the Moteefe Design department to take care of this for you, please send an email to sellersupport@moteefe.com describing your design brief including as much detail as possible.

Step 6

You’ve added your artwork and got it at the right size and positioning, now you’ll want to remove the stitches that interfere with the artwork, just how real knitted sweater would work. There are several ways to do this but for a less ‘permanent’ way of removing the unwanted stitches, let’s use the Mask tool. Select the layer ‘stick pattern’ and click mask. Now press B to activate the brush tool. Simply brush away the unwanted stitches

Top Tip: The mask tool enables you to ‘mask’ elements that you don’t want to appear. It’s a non destructive way of working as you’ll be able to undo your working or remove the mask all together. Whilst on the masked layer, use the brush tool with the colour Black #000000 selected and the colour White #ffffff to edit

Step 7

Looking great! Once you’re happy with how it looks, click save and we are now ready to export the png that will be ready to upload straight into the Moteefe builder. Don’t forget to turn off the bottom layer that we’ve labelled as ‘Sweater Colour’ as we only want to send transparent Png’s to print. 

Go to File > Export > Export as…

Step 8

Now the Export as dialogue box will appear where you’ll need to make sure a PNG will be exported with the Transparency option checked. (This is default when you select PNG) It’s the only image format that supports transparency, and that’s what our printing machines like to work with! 

Now click export and there you have it, your very own Ugly Christmas Sweatshirt design now ready to upload straight into the Moteefe builder. Great job!

How to create a White Label store with a custom domain

How to create a White Label store with a custom domain

How to create a White Label store with a custom domain

Here at Moteefe you have the option to create your very own While Label store. This means you can use your own domain name and customize the store with your very own header and logo. They are easy to set up and come with a range of exclusive features and products only available to White Label store owners. Showcasing your Print on Demand products in this way will help legitimize your business and speak directly to your buyers. Sounds good? let’s take a look at how to set it up for your store…

The White Label Store

“White label” refers to a fully supported product or service that is made by one company but sold by another. 

White label stores give brands and individuals the power to sell their Print on Demand products using the Moteefe fulfillment infrastructure, but with a fully customizable front end. This process not only looks great for the buyer but allows sellers such as yourself to develop your brand and take full ownership of the storefront. Moteefe allows you to update product visibility on your White Label Store by categorizing your products into collections. You can add and remove or update products from your store at any time. 

Connecting a custom Domain

Although the Moteefe store provides sellers with a standard Moteefe store domain link, purchasing your own personal domain gives you true ownership of your brand and boosts your credibility in the eyes of the buyer. It indicates that the seller has taken additional steps towards building their business and reflects a more professional approach. Having your own website gives legitimacy to your business and purchasing a domain can cost as little as a couple of dollars a year! It’s definitely worth the investment. A custom domain name is:

Better for your buyers
A simple domain is much easier to remember than a domain containing suffixes from a hosting site. It is easier for you and your customers to type in http://www.moteefepets.com as opposed to; http://www.moteefepets.mymoteefe.com

Better for SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
Including keywords in your domain name can help with search engine optimization (SEO). Keywords are crucial for business because they help drive traffic to your products. The more relevant your name, the higher you rank according to Google. The higher your Google ranking, the more traffic (as potential buyers) you will gain on your website

Connecting your domain to your Moteefe storefront: The Step-by-Step guide

Step 1

Purchase your domain on a domain name registrar.
These sites vary from country to country so we recommend that you Google one to see which registrar offers the best rates.  Some popular choices are Domain.com, GoDaddy or BlueHost.

Step 2

Log into your Moteefe account and go to your Dashboard. Then click on the Stores tab

Step 3

Hover over the store that you want to attach the domain.  Now, click on the Domains symbol.

Step 4

A form will appear.  Fill out the form with the information of your purchased domain. Insert your Moteefe store name. Now, insert your custom domain name. Click Save & Continue.

Step 5

Log in to the domain registrar e.g GoDaddy and select your new domain for configuration. 

Step 6

look for the DNS Management section. Now you will need to change the Nameservers. Click Change

Step 7

Enter the new nameserver details in the boxes shown below. You can find them on the Moteefe Dashboard. These details have also been sent to you via Email. Be sure to click Save

All done! Please note it can take up to 48 hours to activate your new domain.

The TikTok Ads Targeting Guide

The TikTok Ads Targeting Guide

The TikTok Ads Targeting Guide

Tik Tok ads targeting allows users to direct their adverts towards specific groups. This will allow you to fine-tune your advert’s reach and target groups with specific interests, characteristics, and behaviors online. You can define this targeting during the ad group creation process. Let’s take a closer look at how this works…

How does specific targeting work?

The Tik Tok Ads Manager supports the following criteria for group-specific targeting:

Audience

Demographics

Exclude

Exclude Lookalike or Custom Audiences

Language

Behavior

Target users based on how they’ve interacted with creators

Device

Connection Type

Wifi, 2G, 3G, 4G

Operating System

iOS and Android

Operation System Version

Deliver ads to users based on software version. E.g. iOS 10.0 or above, Android 4.0 or above

Device Model

Deliver ads to users based on user’s device model

Device Price

Deliver ads to users based on device pricing, ranging from no limit to $1000+

Carrier

Deliver ads to users based on mobile phone carriers

Interest Targeting

A user’s interest is determined by the way they behave relating to different content types. This content may include videos, ads, articles, pages and so on.

How does Interest Targeting work?

Tik Tok Ads measures how users interact with this content through views, clicks, downloads, and other specific actions. When a user’s interaction with a particular category of interest is high, for example, ‘gaming’ – (perhaps they regularly watch gaming videos or click on gaming ads), their profile will be associated with this interest for future advertising purposes.

Tik Tok Ads allows you to select ‘interest categories’ under the targeting module. When creating an ad group, your advert will target specific users whose profiles match your particular interest category.

Fine-tuning your adverts to target by interest can dramatically improve your ad delivery accuracy. Let’s take a look at how we can categorize interest targeting in two ways:

Product Characteristics

You can choose the interest you want to target based on product characteristics. For example, if you’re going to promote a Moteefe T-Shirt, you should select ‘Apparel and Accessories’ from the drop-down menu as shown below:

Use Cases:

You can select the interest based on use cases. For example, if you promote a “Moteefe Vacation T-shirt” and think that users who travel may have a particular interest in buying a Moteefe Vacation T-shirt, you can select the interest “Travel”.

For example, when you choose the interests, “Travel”, “Apparel & Accessories” and “Pets”, Tiktok will show your ad to users who are interested in “Travel” or ” Apparel & Accessories ” or “Pets”. Please note that when you select more than one interest, the target audience is users who meet only one individual criterion. So be sure to choose the interest which matches your target group the most.

Behavior Targeting

Behaviour Targeting allows you to deliver ads based on a user’s recent in-app behaviour on TikTok. While interest targeting focuses on a user’s long-term content consumption, behaviour targeting focuses on a user’s recent interactions with content. 

1. Video-related Behavior

Tik Tok Ads also allows you to target users who have watched a video to the end, liked, commented, or shared.

Note: The video-related behaviour that we can capture is limited to their engagement (video completion, like, comment, share) with the organic video content in the past 7 or 15 days.

Step-by-Step Video-related targeting

Step 1: Select your desired user behavior and content category:

Step 2: Search for the content Category you want to target:

Step 3: Determine the look-back time, seven days or 15 days:

Creator Following Actions

You can target users who follow certain types of Creators on TikTok or have viewed the homepage of certain kinds of Creators on the platform.

Step-by-Step Tik-Tok Creators

Step 1: Click on Add Behaviors: Creator Interactions

Step 2: Check the box to select your desired interaction type. TikTok provides two kinds of engagements under Creator Following Actions.

Following: You can target users that follow specific types (s) of creators.
Viewed Homepage: You can target users who have viewed the profile pages of creators’ specific type(s) in the last 30 days.

Step 3: Select your desired audience categories:

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly Christmas Sweater

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly Christmas Sweater

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly Christmas Sweater

A huge trend in Print on Demand in recent years, they’re funny, quirky, interesting and you can’t help but notice when someone’s wearing one! The design options for this product are limitless and you can put an Ugly Sweater spin on pretty much any niche you can think of. There’s even an official Christmas Ugly Sweater Day which this year falls on December the 17th.

We’re three days into the Christmas Contest of 2021 and to get you pumped for starting selling this week our design team has created a range of Christmas Ugly Sweater designs for you to download completely free. The theme All I want for Christmas covers a wide range of niches from Carp, to Yoga, to Beer and has great potential to target that perfect niche for selling success. 

The PSD files are also available to download alongside the print png files should you wish to change the design niche. Hold tight as we’ve got plenty more Christmas design drops to come over the next two months

How do I design an Ugly Christmas Sweater?

An Ugly Christmas Sweater is designed to look like it’s been made out of wool and cleverly shows each individual stitch to replicate a traditional wool knitted sweater. Typically the print is placed in the middle of the sweatshirt and made up of individual printed shapes.

You can incorporate classic Christmas symbolism such as Jingle bells, holly, stars, Mistletoe, things from Christmas carols and popular songs. See if you can pull out some phrases or modernise a popular classic by something more ‘on trend’ such as a popular meme that has surfaced this year or a world event.

You don’t have to create an Ugly Christmas Sweater that’s just based on something Christmasy, you can take your own designs that have sold well in the past and then transform it into the infamous ‘Ugly’ style. If it’s sold well before and you are now adapting the design style it will sell well again, it really is that simple.

Pro tip: If you are using a White Label store with Moteefe you will have access to all of your previous buyers email addresses so your new Ugly design can be targeted to the same group. Australia and New Zealand and two destinations which celebrate Christmas under different climate conditions, so why not consider your Christmas design on a tank top or use a design idea that would resonate with Aussies!
