Teespring is taking a crowdfunded approach to t-shirt preorders. Using their online designer, project creators can create a t-shirt to their liking. Once created, a crowdfunding campaign for the shirt is launched. If the campaign is successful, Teespring fulfills the orders and the project creator receives a check for the profits. If it fails, everyone just walks away. It is a risk-free proposition.
Teespring specifically touts their service for charitable organizations who are always in the market for an innovative way to fundraise.
”Teespring has immediately given Plan International USA a launching pad for creative and disruptive fundraising… it has allowed us to tap into the much younger market that is required for sustainable donor growth. We are thrilled with the technology and donor experience.“
Kristin Barclay, Director of Marketing at PlanUSA
Project pages are simple and to the point. There are no reward levels like other rewards-based campaigns. Visitors just pre-order the shirt.
