If you’ve been selling apparel, homewares, footwear or other print-on-demand products in recent years, you’ll understand how important it is to offer your customers a unique variety of products.

Sure, t-shirts and other apparel are always going to be great sellers for your print-on-demand store, but adding in some higher margin products like canvas wall art can really boost your revenue.

In this article we’ll be discussing all the great reasons you should add custom canvas wall to your Shopify or Etsy store and we’ll also give you a few pointers on how to get started.

Why Should I Sell Custom Canvas Wall Art?

There’s a good chance that you already know a few reasons why selling custom canvas wall art is a great idea for your eCommerce store, but here’s our three favorite reasons why we love them.

Big Impact

Having a stunning piece of wall art on your wall generally makes a big impact. It’s usually something that stands our when someone enters the room and makes a statement.

If you can offer your customers a niche-specific and emotion driving piece of artwork then they won’t think twice about buying it.

To put it simply, customers love wall art and this makes it easier for you to sell!

Easy to Ship

Of course shipping a canvas is going to cost more than shipping a t-shirt by in comparison to large pieces of framed art, they are very lightweight so even with the added shipping costs they are still a viable product to ship around the world.

Big Profit Margins For Sellers

We know it’s getting more difficult for sellers to make a decent profit with their print-on-demand stores, especially when running paid ads on a platform like Facebook or Google.

That’s why higher-ticket items like canvas wall art are a great option to sell. They come with a higher price tag yet are very affordable when using a provider like AOP+ as your print-on-demand dropshipping partner.
