My Experience on Teespring

Recently I ran a campaign on

I am looking to raise funds to help me produce a television program on a local PBS channel. The program is called 'Blindside Fresno' and it aims to inform the people of central California about issues  of blindness, eye care and spotlight blind talent in the area.

Recently I decided to post a design on Teespring, the  on demand t-shirt printing service. 

The service allows you to set sales goals and profit margins for a range of items such as T-shirts, sweatshirts and long sleeve shirts.

After you have added your design to a selection of items, you post the design then publicize it to drive traffic to your campaign. After a set time period, 1 to 3 weeks, your campaign ends and if your minimum order number is exceeded then shirts are printed and despatched to the purchaser. The campaign can then continue quietly in the background contributing cash to you or your organization.

For my campaign I set a three week time limit and to sell a minimum of three shirts. RThis was exceeded and so the shirts were shipped promptly.

The shirt arrived about one week after the campaign closed. Print quality is excellent and clean. The shirt is of excellent quality and a good fit for size.

The money raised from the sales of the shirts also arrived promptly within five business days of the ending of the campaign. Granted it was only a small amount due to the low minimum sales I asked and a low profit margin but it was in line with my estimates and I was very happy with the product and service in terms of getting the money quickly.

If you would be interested in continuing to fund 'Blindside Fresno" by purchasing one of these shirts they are still available from Teespring Hug Me Penguin shirt

I cannot guarantee that you will be hugged everytime you wear the shirt. But I will always appreciate your support.
