Have you ever wanted to help a cause by fundraising for it, but didn’t know where to start? Or had a great idea for a t-shirt that you thought people would buy? TeeSpring is a crowdfunding platform for groups, causes and communities to design and sell custom apparel. It is incredibly easy to use, and anyone can design a shirt which they can then sell online. The seller keeps all of the profit the shirt earns.
The sight is incredibly easy to use. In fact, I spent a little time on the site myself, and was surprised by how easy it is to design a shirt using their premade clipart and text or to upload a design of your own.
The base price of the shirt is determined by the number of colors in the design and the brand/color of the shirt. You can then set the “sell” price of the shirt and determine how many you want to set as your goal to sell. The shirts do not print unless you reach that goal. The higher you set your goal, the lower the base price of the shirt, which in turn increases your profit!
The best part is the shirts don’t print and ship until a set end date determined by the seller. This means they pay nothing upfront, take no risk and don’t have to deal with the hassle of ordering the right number of shirts. If your fundraiser is local, you can also choose to allow buyers to have their shirt shipped to you, and they won’t pay an extra shipping fee.
I’m creating a design now for the NFED, the organization that benefits those affected by Ectodermal Dysplasia, the disorder my son and I are affected by.
What would you design a shirt for?
