“A soft t-shirt with great print quality!“
Hey gang – Joe Robert here! Excited to bring you this review of the “Fitted Cotton Next Level T-Shirt” from SPOD!
*Note – we did not pay for this item, it was sent free of charge for us to review!
Ninja Star Ratings are based on 5 key categories defining an items quality and perceived value.
- Shipping/Fulfillment Time
- Design/Product Match
Check out SPOD and get more information on their website here.
Price: 4/5 Ninja Stars
In general when I sell t-shirts I like to find the cheapest shirt on the market and select it for my design.
With this shirt priced at $12.59 you would have to price it at $24.95 or higher to make a decent profit. For that reason I gave it a 4/5 star rating.
Shipping/Fulfillment Time: 5/5 Ninja Stars
Shipping for this item is $4.50 and including production time it took us only 3 days to receive it.
This item has one of the fastest turnaround times I’ve ever seen. They even state on their website that they’ve got the fastest turnaround time in the indusrty.
When it comes to print on demand items your profit margin and ability to offer free shipping is super important. With shipping costs of almost $5, your all in cost for this t-shirt is almost $17. You will need to charge your customers shipping to make this item profitable for you.
That means at my recommended retail price fo $24.95 plus shipping of $4.50 your customers will be paying about $30 total for this shirt.
While I think the shipping time is high I could not justify not giving them a 5/5 Ninja Star rating on the shipping due to the incredible speed in which I received the item.
Design/Product Match: 5/5 Ninja Stars
Upside: The template for this product was easy to use and the mockups looked great and compare nicely to the real thing.
SPOD has a fully customizable product creation tool. They even have tons of artwork you can add to the shirt and you can even add custom text right inside of the app.
This is a game changer for those who do not have access to design software or who are not designers by nature. The possibilities you could have with this shirt in terms of customization are endless.
I thought this was super unique and something that I haven’t seen replicated to this level before. Printful has something similar but it is not nearly as advanced as this tool found on the SPOD app.
Quality: 5/5 Ninja Stars
The shirt is premium guys, feels super soft and the print quality is perfect.
Your customers will feel like they’ve ordered a premium product and you could definitely build a brand around this t-shirt.
When it comes to print on demand t-shirts, this one definitely is at the top for quality. If you’re looking to sell the nicest shirt you can find this one may be worth looking at.
Mockups: 2/5 Ninja Stars
There’s only one mockup for this shirt available. In past reviews I’ve been extremely critical when this is the case.
Most times to properly sell a t-shirt a print on demand store owner will need to showcase the shirt with multiple mockups.
Most apps are beginning to add human mockups to their galleries and that really helps sellers to sell the product better.
The mockup they do have is very nice. It is not like your standard plain t-shirt mockup in the sense that I think it does a great job at capturing the look and almost the feel of the t-shirt.
Due to only having one I gave them 2/5 Ninja Star Rating for mockups.
4.4 Ninja Stars
Upside: Awesome product and super high quality. Zero complaints there. Like I said above, if you’re looking for a t-shirt that has a premium feel, this one is for you.
Downside: This product lost points in two categories. The first was price, and the second was mockups. The price is okay for a shirt of this quality but I worry it will be tough to be profitable selling it.
Additionally, they lost points for the lack of mockups available to you.
