Create & Sell Custom T-Shirts with Zero Upfront Costs
I just had the opportunity to check out Teespring, a website where you can design and create your own t-shirts, set the price and choose the time period that you would like to sell the shirts. Then after the selling period, Teespring ships all the shirts directly to the customers with no hassle to you. How awesome is that?
Teespring is a great site for those who are looking for a fundraising ideas. Say you are trying to raise money for a 4-H group or a Senior trip. Or say you have a child in your family that has cancer and you are raising money for the family's expenses while the child is in the hospital. Teespring is great for these types of fundraising causes. You can check out some of the past campaigns here. There are no out of pocket expenses and no upfront costs.
Now, I suppose you would like to know how Teespring does this right? Well, here is the gist of it. You hop over here to Launch a Campaign and start designing a t-shirt. After your shirt is completely designed, you set a price and how many shirts you would like to sell. Then you write a brief campaign description and then share your campaign via Facebook, email or however you would like to share it. Everyone can go in and place their orders for ever how many they want and in the sizes they want. Now, you have to sell the minimum that you specify when you are preparing your campaign but you can sell as many over that as you can. The more you sell the more money you raise for your cause. If by chance you don't sell the minimum that you specified then no one gets charged anything and the whole thing is cancelled. This is why you get your shirts at the cheapest prices possible and there are no upfront costs.
Here is a video for you that may help you understand it a little better.
I have went in a played with the t-shirt creator and I have to say that it is very easy to do. I even uploaded my own picture to see how easy it all was to do and that too was simple. You can even have the kids design shirts for their clubs like the Scouts and 4-H, that is how easy it is to use.
Here are a couple of shirts that have been designed and sold thru Teespring and if you click on the shirts, you can see the campaigns that went along with them.
So, if you know anyone who is looking for a fundraising idea make sure your share Teespring with them.
