New Print-On-Demand Products

My print-on-demand partners have been adding some fun new products to their ranges and I’ve been busy getting my characters and patterns added to them. Let’s have a look!

kawaii dad hats

Dad hats/baseball caps are new at Redbubble, and the first time I’ve had my designs on hats! They’re available in 4 neutral colours and are one size with adjustable snapback fastening. I really hope they add some cute colours too, or even bucket hats.

mouse mats & desk pads

Also at Redbubble are mouse mats and desk pads. These make a fun combination as often I was able to put the individual character on a mouse mat and the matching pattern on the desk pad. They’re both one size each with a rubber backing for stability. I’m thinking of getting a desk pad myself as it looks like a nice work surface for packing orders.

tech accessories

Society6 recently added lots of tech accessories for both Apple & Android devices. That includes credit card cases, folding folio cases and even Apple Watch bands!

kawaii yoga mats & towels

Society6 also have yoga mats and yoga towels, which I am eyeing with interest since I started playing Ring Fit Adventure. Both are the same size and lightweight when rolled up – the mat also includes a carry handle.

outdoor lifestyle

And they’ve been adding to the tabletop section with water bottles and wine chillers, plus I was able to make many more designs available on the outdoor lifestyle products like picnic blankets, sun shades and deckchairs!

Today’s Offers

If you like the look of something, there’s some big discounts today. I’d also recommend planning your purchases and waiting for bigger Black Friday deals, though they may be too late for Christmas delivery.
