Doing this does require some amount of design skills and software. While you can certainly get by just putting some words on a product, a product with graphics and images will always be more appealing to potential customers.
CafePress comes with a built in tool for creating designs that works very well for simple concepts. You can type and edit text in an endless amount of font sizes, shapes and colors; choose from a catalog of images, or even upload your own images. You may find this is all you need to get started and even make your first few sales.
To really make eye popping designs that get people buying, though, you’ll want to look into getting your hands on a 3rd party, professional grade graphic design program. Prices on such programs can range from free (yes, you read that right!) to several hundred dollars!
