Let 50-AP handle your merchandising! We offer a full merchandise platform whereby you can supply a range of custom designed products to your customers or fans!
Just looking for a batch of custom items or don’t need an online store? We can do that too! Just fill out the form at the bottom of the page.
How It Works
We will provide you with a ‘shop’ page within our network. This will come with a sub-domain. For instance yourname.50-AP.co.uk.
This shop page will show all the products that you pick from our range with your own custom designs on them. Your customers can then purchase these items from us, we produce them in your custom style and ship them to the customer. If there are any customer service issues, we’ll handle it!
We build our margin into the minimum price for each item. So each penny over this is yours to keep.
All you need to worry about is the designs, and the profit!
The advantage of this approach is that you do not need to source your own products where you will usually have a minimum purchase amount. This is a risky strategy, as you may not be able to guarantee that you’ll sell all the products. With our approach, we stockpile blanks of each product type and produce the custom item to demand.
What Products Can I Have?
We produce your custom items through a process called ‘sublimation’, which utilises a specially prepared printer in order to transfer the design to the item.
However, do not confuse this process with transfer paper. When you apply the design to the product, it becomes part of that item. It’s not simply stuck on the surface. Mugs and ceramic items are dishwasher safe, and fabric/clothing items suffer no cracking or fading.
What this process also allows for is a wide range of mediums which you can view below.
What’s The Cost and Setup Process?
For a new store, there is a £30 setup cost. This covers the administration involved in configuring and setting up your web-store.
Once your store is established, we will require high-resolution images of your designs. You will effectively license these designs to us for application onto products for your orders. We will not use or distribute these images elsewhere, except for promotional images on your webstore or our own media channels (facebook etc).
We will use your designs to produce promotional images with your designs of your desired products.
You will then be able to select which items, with which designs you wish to sell from your store. You will also be able to set your own price, as long as it exceeds the minimum price.
If you wish to add further products to your store, there will be a small cost involved in producing the initial images for the new product. This is charged a £2.50, but we will produce images for six products for free.
Generally when we produce the first run of any of your products, we will photograph these and add them to the product images. If you want to purchase the initial run product rather than pay an additional image fee, this can be arranged.
The minimum prices* for our current range can be found on this google doc.

That’s all there is to it! You’ll be selling your own merchandise in no time!
