What is Midwest Merch?!

I'm a guy in my mid 20's who got started selling online a little over a year ago as an online small business marketer. As I found myself helping others build their own business, I got the itch to start a side business of my own! So I got into designing cool products for all types of customers. The products range from mugs to shirts to totes and much much more! I started to love it, so I quit my online marketing business & haven't looked back since!

I got my bachelor's degree in business management in 2016, but knew I didn't want to work in a corporate environment my whole life. So shortly after I started Midwest Merch, I knew I wanted to make a living by providing everyone with awesome, fun designs, on all types of products.

I've taught myself everything I know through books and courses from guys like Elliott Hulse, Russell Brunson, Pat Flynn, Brian Tracy, Ryan Deiss, Jim Rohn, Tony Robbins, Jeff Walker and many more. By teaching myself over the last 2 years, I have gained a level of expertise & now enjoy doing this design stuff full time.

How We Began


I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Business Management degree. But after just 2 years into my degree, I realized I had the "itch" of being my own boss (or some would say the "entrepreneur bug"). So began the pursuit of living my dream. I began business marketing as a freelancer, picking a few long term clients on the way.

Quickly, I realized that although I liked what I was doing, I didn't LOVE it. So when I thought of "Midwest Merch" I knew I was onto something. So I then built this Etsy Shop to provide others with great product!

So What's My Motivation

Guess What?

It's Not About The Money.

My growing family is my motivation. I am married to my beautiful wife Brianna and have two labradors, Bo (yellow lab) & Bella (chocolate lab). I want to be able to provide them with the life they deserve & I feel this is the best way to do so.

Midwest Merch is about me helping others find awesome products at great prices. Too many times I've ran across stores that either priced too high, or don't provide a quality product. I want to be the shop that provides high quality, affordable merchandise!

Frequently asked questions
Turnaround Time

Shirts / Mugs/ Bottles ►
Basic apparel orders and pillows ship in 2-7 business days, add another 1-7 days in shipping depending on which shipping method you selected at checkout.

Care instructions

For the first wash, it's always best to turn inside out and wash on cool. Tumble dry low or hang to dry. After the first wash, feel free to wash however you like. Shirts can be ironed inside out on low if needed.

Custom and personalized orders

We cannot offer this, at this time!

Sizing details

Please be sure to review and read the sizing charts and descriptions before ordering! We want to make sure you get the best fit as our items cannot be returned due to sizing errors!

Order Change Questions

Please request order changes/adjustments by starting a convo - **PLEASE DON'T EMAIL ME DIRECTLY** ps - I'm totally not email yelling at you, but really want to make sure this stands out! :) It's MUCH easier for me if ALL sizing / order / address changes are requested in CONVOS and I check them much more frequently. We will do our best to accommodate them as long as they are requested shortly after the order is placed. We often process orders same and next day and it's very easy for me to overlook a separate email as I don't check that as often. :( Thanks for your help!

Custom and personalized orders

We do ship internationally, but because it can be very UNPREDICTABLE, we recommend allowing 3-5 weeks for basic first class items to arrive.
