What is Teespring? Teespring allows you to create & sell custom apparel with ZERO Hassle, ZERO upfront costs, and ZERO risk.
Teespring is the best way to design and sell custom apparel online. You design a product and sell it. The sales money pays for the production of your design and we ship it to all of your buyers. When you use Teespring you don’t have to pay a dollar upfront, guess how many shirts you’ll need, or have to chase anyone down for cash.
It only takes a couple of minutes to launch a campaign and start selling awesome merchandise on Teespring.
The way it works ...
If you go with the minimum number of shirts for your campaign (10), you simply launch and wait to see if your reach your target (and you won't unless you're marketing someway, somewhere and somehow). If you don't reach the minimum number of sales, you don't have to pay a penalty or anything but you must reach your minimum before your shirts are printed and shipped. So if you go with a minimum of 10 and you only sell 5 shirts, they won't be shipped because you didn't reach your minimum. Your customer is not charged - they just don't get the shirt. The difference between shirt cost and sales price is your profit. So if you go with a minimum of 20 shirts and you sell 40, you get the difference between the base cost and what you sold the shirt for. There is a suggested retail price but you have the capability to change it and make it whatever you decide you want your profit to be. Most people seem to make their minimum 20 to 50 shirts per campaign with pricing around $15-25 per shirt, depending. They will also ship the shirt directly to the customer for you. Some people sell 0 shirts on a campaign and some people sell 3000 - it depends on lots of different things as you probably know. But I think teespring is the best thing since sliced bread if you are new to the business and don't have a ton of money to spend learning. Like I said you still have to market to get sales but there are free ways to do that, just takes time and effort. I am new also and have run about 6 campaigns on tee spring in the last couple of weeks. I haven't sold one shirt yet but it's because I am still learning about where and how to market tee shirt specifically to my niche. I did manage to get 272 page likes for one of my campaigns and I only spent $5 to promote the shirt on facebook last week. No buys but as you'll find out "likes" mean a lot in facebook marketing and can be turned into other things. There is a definite learning curve for online marketing but it's a lot of fun and so far I'm enjoying myself and learning A LOT! I joined a facebook group called teespring university and so far the people there have been very helpful. In fact the guy in charge is giving away (for free) a 100 page ebook they gets you rolling with how to set up teespring. He gives a lot of insight as to how he picks his niches, where and how he researches his shirts - the whole 9. Anyway, I have to get back to tee shirt research so I want to wish you the best and I'll leave you with a couple of links...
