Coming Soon: Shop With Me!

I’m so incredibly excited about a new feature I’m in the process of adding to Everyday Teacher Style: an online store! Awhile back I wore a graphic tee featuring the word READ shown in a way that it looked like a rock band t-shirt:

So anyway, I got this shirt a long time ago at a table at a teacher conference. I have searched and searched, but haven’t been able to find any more like it, so……drumroll…..I made my own graphic on Adobe Illustrator, uploaded it to a direct print & ship company, and hooked it up to Shopify eCommerce, and voila.

In addition to the “READ” tees, I also created a tote bag and a mug with this same image. And the coolest part is, you can buy them right from my own website! Well, I hope….I did a test run and ordered a few things for myself and the order is being fulfilled right now. Can’t to wait to receive my own order…from my own shop!

Once I receive my own order and make sure everything looks nice and works perfectly, I will activate the buying function on my Shop page, and then it’s game on!

These are the products I’ll be selling once my store officially opens:

 In the future I plan to create designs on Illustrator and offer a few more different styles and products.  My “thing” is going to be stylish and teacher-centric products and gifts. At least I think it is. It’s entirely possible I’ll end up paying more for Adobe Creative Cloud and the Shopify service) than I make, but I wanted to give it a try. I’ll definitely let you know how it goes!

If any of you who are reading this already have experience with this sort of thing, please, please, please share advice, tips, and insights you’ve learned from your experience. Thanks!
