Back small businesses and independent creatives by supporting these campaigns on Everpress...

Now is the time to self-realise your own destiny friends and take the power of creation into your own hands.

We caught up with the good folks at EVERPRESS to pull together some 'How To' insights and practical support to aid you creating and selling your own merchandise.

The platform enables artists, creators and labels to sell better merch. Their mission is to support grassroots creators and reduce the wastage in fashion through pre-order apparel campaigns.

So you only create as many items as you actually need to sell, and can drive demand and anticipation for your products ahead of time.

For the business savvy, this is akin to the organic scarcity model of operating; driving anticipation and demand of your product before it exists with marketing exercises then producing small batches of limited edition items on a small run.

This has been the route of choice for a host of now highly succesful businesses as it limits your risk, makes your product exclusive and builds hype all in one fell swoop. You can apply this to anything but for now, lets get your merchandise firing on all cylinders.

Here are some vital links and resources to start you on the path to being a fashion mogul before the year is out;

1. The Campaign Builder

2. The Creator Toolkit

3. The Garment Guide

BE KIND STAY GROOVY

Collaboration between Hackney based florist Bloomin' Heck and artist Mannikk.Martina.

It's incredibly hard for independent florists to compete with large corporations monopolising the flower industry pushing limp daffodils out to supermarkets.

When you buy from your local florist you are also supporting a flower market, farm or local grower. Back the t-shirt and the campaign now here.
