One of my dreams has always been to be a graphic designer for t-shirts. I’ve bought some of my favorite and most cherished designs online for myself, family and friends.
In my journeys online, I’ve recently discovered Teespring. Teespring is a very cool crowdfunding platform for groups, communities and causes to design and sell custom apparel. The seller keeps the profit from the shirt so you can use Teespring as a fundraising tool or to earn some extra money.
Anyone can engage with the site and design a shirt to sell via Facebook, Twitter or anyplace else online.
I have a very cool Facebook group with friends I’ve known for years. We are like family. It would be a blast to design a shirt for our group.
Basically, Teespring does most of the heavy lifting for you! The best part is that the shirts don’t print and ship until a date determined by the seller. This ensures that you have to pay nothing upfront, have basically no risk and don’t have to deal with the right number of shirts to order.
You can have some fun and check out the designer if you go to teespring.com/design. You can upload your own art or work with their extensive library of over 10,000 pieces of art and more than 50 fonts.
The following are some awesome examples of what people have done on Teespring:
A couple sold this “Love makes a family shirt” to raise money to adopt.
Here’s another one which included children’s and toddler’s shirts to help raise money for an 11-year-old to sing in a children’s choir in Hungary.
And, since I live in the Boston area, this shirt is particularly dear to my heart and raised over 85k for Boston relief.
Why not have shirts that mean something to you personally and that you can be proud to sell and wear? I’m looking forward to designing a shirt and fulfilling one of my dreams. What might Teespring do for you?
