November Holidays and Product/Marketing Ideas

November is generally a quieter month for eCommerce due to the holiday season, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of some key marketing opportunities. Our November 2022 Print-On-Demand Trends Report takes a look at some of the latest trends and ideas in the industry to help you make the most of this slower period. In terms of products, we’ve seen a trend toward more personalized and unique items.

November 2022 Print-On-Demand Trends

November 11: Veterans Day

This holiday is an excellent opportunity to show your support for the men and women who have served our country. Veterans Day is typically a time for family gatherings and parades, so consider creating custom products that can be used as decorations or gifts. This is a day to remember and honor those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom, so make sure your products reflect that sentiment.

Product Inspiration

A Veterans day calls for a more sentimental approach to product design. Consider using patriotic colors and imagery, or create a design that can be personalized with a name or message. The Customizable Patriotic Ceramic Mug is our top pick! With just a name, rank, or message you can easily personalize.


Customizable Patriotic Ceramic Mug Details:

-Size: 11 oz. and 15 oz.

This mug is perfect for any veteran or active-duty military member. It’s also a great gift for friends and family who want to show their support.

Marketing Inspiration

There are a few key ways you can market your products for Veterans Day. First, consider creating social media posts and ads that feature veterans or active-duty military members using your products. You can also offer discounts to veterans and military families e.g. 10% off for veterans and active-duty military members and 20% off for military families. Finally, make sure your website and product pages are optimized for Veterans Day keywords (Veterans Day, Support our troops, Military families, Patriotic, Honor).

You can also create unique, limited-edition products specifically for Black Friday. Be sure to promote your Black Friday deals on social media and in your email newsletters.

Product Inspiration

For Black Friday, we recommend products that are perfect for gift-giving. This could be anything from custom hoodies to jewelry.  Hoodies have always been a popular Black Friday deal, so take advantage of that trend and design some unique hoodies for your shop.

November 28: Cyber Monday

Cyber Monday was established in 2005 as an opportunity for shoppers to take advantage of Black Friday deals online. It’s a day when shoppers can save money by taking advantage of online deals and discounts. Unlike Black Friday, which is more hectic, Cyber Monday ebbs and flows, giving shoppers ample time to score great deals – especially those with limited free time.

Product Inspiration

For Cyber Monday, we recommend phone cases and ceramic ornaments. Phone cases are always a popular choice, and you can offer discounts on multiple phone case purchases. Ceramic ornaments make great holiday gifts, and most people are willing to pay a little extra for a unique, handmade ornament.

Phone Case Details:

-Many different designs and colors

-Different materials.

-Sizes for all iPhone models.

-Clear cases, glitter cases, etc.

Ceramic Ornament Details:

-Many different designs

Marketing Inspiration

To market your phone cases and ceramic ornaments, we recommend using a Cyber Monday sale banner e.g. “Cyber Monday Sale – 20% Off All Phone Cases!” You can also offer discounts for multiple purchases, or for signing up for your email list. For ceramic ornaments, consider running a holiday photo contest – people love taking photos with their Christmas trees, and they’ll be happy to share them if they have a chance to win a prize.

-“Get a free ceramic ornament when you sign up for our email list.”
