Years ago I made up this shirt:


And it's sold well both IRL and at Amazon. So well, in fact, that it's got a "Bestsellers Rank (BSR)" of around 700,000. If someone buys 2 at a time, that drops to 200k or so. That gets it on the radar of robots that prowl amazon for popular things to copy.

Here's one of the copies (check both listings: they copied mine word for word!) I named mine "Bison Toss" because that's easy to search for without getting a lot of chaff. But the art. Oh, the art. So awesome. The majestic bison.

I put all my shirt in my Music and Reading Store because anything that is purchased through there gives me an extra 8% bump.
I just had to buy some ram and a new back up drive and got about 10 bucks back because I put them in my store. So here's the link
You might have to wade through some incredible manbird-curated music, books and art. But I think most of them area in the same proximity.

I follow some medieval researchers on twitter who post great pics of details from illuminated manuscripts and their marginalia. Some of that would make great shirts if your can do multicolour. There are some b&w ones.

It's cool when sales come in that have to be 100% organic... not the result of any of our spamming   
 
My 1/5 2/5 1/5 1/5 shirt just started moving on its own. I wonder who linked to it, or if the joke's circulating on Facebook again

I put a some uncategorizable stuff under "Scott Larsen Design," but it's generally agreed that the "brand name" packs the most punch in an Amazon search, so most sellers say "Dabbing Unicorn" in the brand name for their dabbing unicorn T shirts.

I sometimes put a code into my listings so that I can link to search results for that code—because I have other styles in that same "brand" and I should incorporate a master code into everything, but I keep forgetting. I also forget to use the "brand" I was trying to stick with for similar shirts . I'm so good at this!
 
But you can see the problem with Amazon's program that Manbird, Proclivities and I are in: I have several designs up, but in some cases hundreds of variations on that design. Amazon doesn't gang them together like they should, so say you want one of the Honey shirts, you'd have to specifically search for the state you want*, then choose from hoodie, T, etc. It's dumb, but there's a little hope that Amazon will consolidate things like that so when you search, you don't get a wall of exactly the same design on all its iterations.
 
*Check out the copycat on that I have lurkers on my facebook page who think I'm a genius; anything I post there gets stolen. I don't think I'll have a lot of trouble with that one tho.
 
Sometimes they take a screenshot of Amazon shirts and put them on their own store or bonanza etc. I'm hoping this one gets stolen.
