What if we told you you could go to market this week with your own brand of massage gun, memory foam dog bed, or skin care serum?

One way to make a quick entry into being your own boss is white labeling—selling products manufactured by others, customized with your own designs or branding. Selling white label products is an easy option for those looking to jump on a trend or avoid having to make or manufacture products on their own.

Ahead, we’ll share 13 ideas for popular white label products that you can brand and start selling today

What is white labeling?

White label products are generic products mass manufactured then customized slightly (logo or brand name added, for example) for several brands. White label products can be bulk ordered, dropshipped, or printed on demand.

The term is often used interchangeably with “private labeling.” But technically, there are some subtle differences. Both refer to products manufactured and then relabeled or rebranded for another store or brand. Private label products, however, are most often types of productsmanufactured and branded before being sold exclusively by one retailer, for example, a suite of products under Walgreens’ generic brand sold only at its stores.

Private labeling is generally more expensive, due to the nature of the customization and high minimums, and is best for brands that are already more established. White label products are accessible to smaller brands or those just starting up due to low, or sometimes no, minimums, as in the case of print on demand.

The benefits of white labeling

White labeling allows you to quickly spin up a business around an existing product. You can add your own touch through branding, a great website, personalized shopping experiences, and unique packaging. You don’t need to have any creative skills or manufacturing experience to sell white label products.

White labeling might be a great option if you:

  • Are looking to jump on a trending product
  • Want to start a business quickly 
  • Don’t have a unique product idea
  • Want to start a business without much upfront investment
  • Aren’t interested in making or manufacturing products yourself
  • Want branded supplemental products for an existing business (say, a service-based business)
  • Are looking to monetize a personal or influencer brand with merch 

White label vs. custom products

Making your own unique products from scratch can be highly rewarding. Artists, craftspeople, and product designers tend to enjoy this aspect of running a business. But it’s not for everyone. Whether you’re not creative or don’t have the time or patience for product R&D, you may opt to skip production altogether. Enter white label.

The downside of white label products is that the same product may be sold under many different brand names, meaning you can easily get lost in the shuffle. Almost any search on Amazon delivers pages and pages of identical products with different logos. You can make the most of white labeling—and stand out from other brands—by investing in a solid brand story and customer experience. Or you may compete on price or delivery options.

13 white label products to sell online

Now that you’re up to speed, is white labeling for you? Read on for ideas you can start selling under your own brand now.

1. Reusable water bottles

Water bottles are blank canvases for any design. If you’re an artist or designer looking to sell merch, this is a low-cost idea that lets you sell a reproduction of your work at an accessible price to your fans. Water bottles can also be white labeled with a simple logo and used for brand awareness. Say you sell digital fitness content like online yoga classes or virtual personal training. Branded water bottles offer a way to diversify into a relevant physical product.

2. Cosmetics and skincare products

You might not know it, but many of the cosmetics brands on the market today are made by just a handful of manufacturers. In some cases, they’re the exact same formulation. What sets them apart is brand, packaging design, and perhaps the range of colors offered. For example, Kylie Jenner’s brand is produced by Seed Beauty, a private-label company that is also responsible for ColourPop. To make a start in white label cosmetics, focus on one product, like lip balm.

3. Phone accessories

Like stainless steel water bottles, white label phone accessories are inexpensive to produce, widely available, and easily customizable. Phone cases are a great option for designers or artists for showcasing work on an affordable accessory, and other accessories like cords or car mounts can be easily rebranded.

4. Fitness clothing and accessories

Trends in fitness gear and athletic wear ramped up during the pandemic and changed the way many work out forever. Yoga mats, sport socks, leggings, fitness equipment, t-shirts, and water bottles are available through multiple manufacturers and print-on-demand companies. 

Ideas include starting an online boutique or clothing line selling your own branded white label products. Fitness influencers can help monetize their personal brands through customized workout merch.

5. Pet accessories

As more and more companies move to remote-style working arrangements, workers everywhere are replacing colleagues with furry companions to combat loneliness. With more pets comes more demand for pet products. 

Get into the booming pet industry by white labeling dog beds, cat toys, and aquarium accessories. This is a great option for pet service businesses that may wish to add branded products to their offering.

6. Mugs

Ceramic mugs emblazoned with memes, travel mugs engraved with your logo, or enamel camping mugs with custom artwork—there are several options for adding white label branding to mugs. And it’s a good time to get into the drinkware space, with more people making coffee and tea at home thanks to the increase in remote work.

7. Essential oils

Self-care and wellness trends show no signs of slowing down, making this a profitable industry for newcomers. Essential oils, diffusers, and bath products made with essential oils can all be white labeled and sold online. Branded essential oils are a great way for wellness influencers to monetize a personal brand or make a foray into ecommerce. 

8. LED lights and fairy lights

Fairy lights, LED light-up sneakers, solar-powered camp lights, flashlights, and novelty lights can all be found through white label manufacturers. There are many brands on the market selling subtle variations of the same product, so invest in setting your brand, website, and marketing apart from the rest.

9. Tote bags

In recent years, consumer trends have pointed to increased interest in supporting sustainable practices and businesses. Retail businesses can add branded reusable totes to their offerings and sell them at a low cost (or give them away) to encourage customers to ditch plastic—and increase brand awareness at the same time. 

These are great options for graphic designers and artists, too. The flat large surface is a great blank canvas, offering an easy way to monetize your art. White label tote bags are often available through print-on-demand companies, allowing you to get started with a low initial investment.

10. Massage guns

Massage guns were another breakout product idea in 2020, after many replaced their wellness rituals with at-home devices. This is an excellent white label product to consider if you are looking to enter this lucrative industry. Sites like Alibaba return multiple results for massage guns that can be customized with your own branding. 

11. Coffee beans

Think beyond mugs—why not sell your own branded coffee beans? Some coffee producers will work with other brands to produce custom blends and packaging. Generally, these partnerships would require a sizable investment, but there are inexpensive alternatives and can generate steady passive income. Try your hand at selling custom-branded coffee online with Dripshipper, a white label coffee bean seller that integrates with your Shopify store. 

12. Beach towels

You can start a white label business with a seasonal product like beach towels. These products are always in demand and can be customized in a number of ways. Fitness service businesses like surf schools may consider adding white label branding to towels to sell as merch. Artists can customize the entire design, turning drawings or paintings into usable products.

13. Apparel and fashion accessories

T-shirts, sunglasses, shoes, and more can become white label products to sell. If you run a fashion brand and are looking to upsell or cross-sell with branded accessories, consider adding your logo to white label eyewear. These types of products are often available through print-on-demand companies.
