About this lesson

Are you looking to start or optimize your print-on-demand business?

Step 1: Create a Printify Account

To get started, head over to and sign up for a free account. Once you've created your account, you'll be greeted with the Printify dashboard. From here, you can connect your Printify account to various e-commerce platforms like Etsy, but for this tutorial, we'll focus on the PrintJourney integration.

Step 2: Sign Up for PrintJourney

Next, navigate to the PrintJourney website and sign up for an account. You can easily log in using your Google account via OAuth, ensuring a secure connection between PrintJourney and your Google profile.

Step 3: Connect Printify to PrintJourney

After logging into PrintJourney, you'll be directed to the onboarding page. To connect your Printify account, simply click on the "Connect" button next to the Printify logo. You'll be taken to an OAuth page, where you can securely grant PrintJourney access to your Printify account. Label the connection (e.g., "PrintJourney Store") and click "Allow" to proceed.

Step 4: Select Templates and Designs

After connecting Printify, you'll be presented with three template options: a square frame canvas, a square sticker, and a spun polyester square pillow. Choose the square frame canvas for this example and click "Next." On the following screen, select a design that appeals to you and proceed to the publish form.

Step 5: Publish Your First Draft Product

In the publish form, you'll see your chosen design, its description, and the selected template. Click on "Publish Draft" to apply the design to your square frame canvas and send it to Printify for processing.

Step 6: Manage Your Store Settings

After publishing your draft, you'll be redirected to the PrintJourney dashboard, where you'll see that your store is now synced with PrintJourney. To manage your store settings, click on the "Stores" tab and select your store. From here, you can add a store description and define your brand personality. For example, you might describe your store as "Tempo Tech is a brand that fuses music and technology" and set your brand personality to "friendly, music-loving." Click "Update" to save your changes.
