Raising money/funds is the goal you’ve set for yourself. We understand this is one of the most important aspects of our site, so we’d like to take some time to tell you how profits and costs are broken down. We believe in being transparent in the process too, after all, not everyone is in the business of printing and packing T-Shirts!
To start you have most likely picked out your product and what types of shirts you would like to have in your campaign. If you haven’t done so yet then head on over to our help article that talks about picking out clothing! What merchandise should I select?
Keep in mind, a premium shirt has a higher base cost than a basic shirt. This will help determine the final price of your campaign shirt. Another big factor is the number of print locations (front or back). We HIGHLY recommend that you only design the front of your tee, or the back, just one place not both. Adding a second location, like a back imprint, roughly doubles the printing cost. But if you have to have both then try to keep your print to 1 color.
Speaking of 1 color prints, we recommend sticking to just 1 color at a time. Multi-color prints and full-color prints tend to cost us more to create and produce. In turn, this can take away from the funds you raise and cut into your profits, so try to stick to 1 color!
We currently have 2 different ways you can run a fundraiser, Standard or OnDemand. To learn about each of these options check out our help article here: What's the difference between a standard campaign and an on-demand campaign?
Once you make your campaign choice then you’ll know how much you will make per shirt. With OnDemand you’ll make the same per shirt no matter how many you sell, and with Standard you’ll make ore per shirt the more you sell!
