Affordable Merch Options for Your Hobby

Affordable Merch Options for Your Hobby

What’s your hobby? Do you like to watch movies, anime or TV series? Prefer to occupy your free time with activities such as cooking, gardening or baking? For whatever kind of hobby you may have be it something to do indoors or something that’s more of an outside kind of thing, show your love for it through custom-made items such as clothing and personal accessories.

You can perhaps buy such things ready-made from the hobby stores near you. However, the prices displayed aren’t typically budget-friendly. If money isn’t an issue for you then go ahead and splurge to your heart’s content. But, if you’re like most of us who need to save up for potentially rainy days, then the best option for you is to create your own custom merchandise.

Where to Customise?

Nowadays, there are lots of places you can go to in order to make your own personalised merch. If you choose to do so at a local store nearby, that’s fine as long as the price is affordable. Though, it’d be much easier if you just did it online as you don’t have to waste gas money (if you’re driving) or tire yourself out from the drive to and back from the store which depending on the store’s service could require you to do so multiple times.

Online alone there are so many websites to choose from that’ll allow you to custom-design your own gifts, items, and accessories. The benefit of creating a custom-made design for your hobby is that it’s undeniably convenient since you can do it from basically anywhere and the only thing you’ll really need is a good Wi-Fi connection. What’s more, if you choose the right website, you’ll even be able to create a personalised item at a much cheaper price than if you were to do it at a mall or gift store.

What to Customise?

Now, on to the question of what to customise. Most likely, you already have an idea of what to custom-design for your hobby. Though, if you’re still on the fence about what item would be good to display your interest on, below are some items that would make great custom-made gift items either for yourself or for your loved ones.

1. Custom Photo Mugs

If you enjoy drinking out of a mug be it for hot or cold drinks then this is the item for you. Onto the plain mug, you can print out any sort of image, text or artwork. For instance, if your hobby is related to baking, you can print out the words “I’m a whisk taker” along with an image of a whisk. Or, if you’re a tea lover, you can just print out the words “You’re my cup of tea”.

2. Custom T-Shirt Designs

Who here doesn’t wear t-shirts on a daily basis? Even if it’s not your usual choice of clothes for outings, you’ll still wear it at home. There’s a reason why nearly everyone in the entire world owns t-shirts and if you still need to ask why then you must be part of the one percent or even less than one percent of the population who don’t own t-shirts. So custom-create a wonderful design for this comfortable and essential piece of clothing with stylish images or funny quotes such as “I’ve got 99 problems but cooking ain’t one”. For anime lovers out there, you can print your favorite anime quotes or even their picture.

3. Custom-Printed Bags 

Just like t-shirts, bags are present in practically every aspect of our lives. We use them for school, work, outings, shopping, and lots more. Therefore, customise this indispensable item with a famous quote from a movie you love. Or, if your hobby is gardening, print onto it the words “I love gardening, from my head tomatoes”. For something slightly more scandalous, just a midge though, you can print out “I like it when you talk dirt to me”.
