I just launched my website and was looking to get some feedback from people who have been into websites longer than I have and people who have their own clothing lines!!

Good hustle. There's a couple of typos on your t shirts and on your insta bio. I'd put more colors into the website. The yellow logo on some t shirt colors is very hard to see. You should keep the titles of the products standardized.

Would you be open to some feedback on your products?

  1. Bad design
  2. Terrible product imagery (yellow font on a stock image isn't worth $20) and it's barely readable!
  3. Overall quality of products and website looks very amateurish
Don't mean to rain on your parade, and I've never run an online clothing store... But I do know what I look for as a consumer, and there's just no way I would buy from your site when there are literally 1000s of better stores I can find, often at better price. For example: Just one site I found with similar products. Take a look at how they display their products, the quality of design, etc: Shop Motivation T-Shirts online | Spreadshirt

Good luck with this, but I'd recommend you DRASTICALLY improve the quality of your imagery, your product selection and overall look of your website before going further.

Kudos on taking action, but overall, this will be fruitless in terms of money, but helpful toward experience.

Namely, why are you in this business?
Because there is a need for these shirts?
Better quality? What is your value skew?

I don't have clothing line and not planning to open one anytime soon. But. Reach out for shirt designer, tell him/her your idea and let the magic happen. Seriously, the texts on your shirts are barely readable, yellow is one of the worst colors to use. Also if you put text on pictures, make sure the colors contrast.
Cheap option is fiverr.com. There you can find plenty of shirt designers who will make great designs for low prices. On the way there - you might ask someone to help with redesigning your site. That would help you start moving and learning. I won't even get into brand building, marketing etc.

Wow, I love the message in that first sentence.

@jacob poche Here's my totally honest opinion (please don't take it too personal)

upload_2019-3-18_15-5-10.png

The font of your headers is the default font. You must change that.
Your designs - The yellow text over color gradients/schemes makes it hard to read (and really low contrast on the one to the right - invisible for colorblind people).

Exclamation marks everywhere ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
That makes it look unprofessionnal, you don't need them.

I think we've been backlink spammed.

@jacob poche If you're not going to answer the community's questions, then your thread will be deleted and your account removed for spam/backlinking. That was my first impression of the post, but I thought you were interested in legit feedback.

You prompt disappearance has me thinking that you're not interested in feedback, but a backlink.

Clock is ticking...

Probably not, more like a masked advertisement. He's probably waiting by his phone with baited-breath waiting for his first order. Then it's on to the Ferrari dealer...

Lots of memories on here lately. That one site reminded me of 1998 and these shirts remind me of 1982. I think I bought one that looked like this and read: Happiness is looking at Abilene, Texas in my rearview mirror.

Link removed, he's not interested in feedback. We've wasted our time talking to
ourselves. Nonetheless, there's some good feedback here, someone captured a screenshot so you can see there was much improvement to be had.
