Teespring: Custom Shirts for Social Issues

Teespring is a custom design shirt site where you can raise money for social issues. Different from other fundraising shirt design sites, there are no upfront costs and no bundles of shirts hanging around waiting for buyers. The high quality of the shirts can help your cause collect the profits.

Social Issues Fundraising with Teespring

It’s simple to get started with Teespring. Start a campaign with a shirt you design. Sell your shirts by sharing them online. Shirts are screen-printed and shipped only after your goal is met (the number of shirts you expect to sell). There’s no cost to you!

Of course, individuals and groups may want to raise money using Teespring. You don’t have to be a nonprofit to make and sell shirts. For example, a young girl needed money to sing with a choir in Hungary. She sold 48 of her pink shirts with a puppy design, more than her goal of 36 shirts.

A recent social issue, the Boston Marathon Bombing raised money for The One Fund Boston with Stay Strong Boston shirts. The total shirts sold were 6311, much more than their goal of 75.

Easy way to raise money for social issues

Tips to make Teespring work for your social issue:

  • Design- Creates a unique shirt with colors, images and a message that pops. Use the design tool and watch the tutorial video.
  • Quality of shirts – Pick the brand and the style (basic tees, hoodies, etc.)
  • Price – Choose your goal (minimum shirts to sell) and consider other costs.
  • Social Networking – Write a title and description of your cause that draws people in. Promote it everywhere, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, email, etc.

Social issues need to raise awareness and money. Teespring is a simple way to do this.
