TEE SPRING campaign 'Billi' shirt!
Update: 15/05/2014 Totally abandoned the teespring thing; i figured it would be a stretch to try and sell 20 shirts but i’ve just realised its a really big stretch.
There is no search or categories function on teespring so you have to drive traffic with FB, Twitter requests and most commonly advertising.
While its a really good service for people with a big cause or large audience…totally not ideal for us with a tiny audience.
SO we will just have to stick with our normal shirts 🙂 but the best thing is trying it out was totally free *phew*.
Want to wear the same ‘Billi’ shirt i do? well you can now!
It turns out we can offer american apparel shirts for $18 as opposed to the 39.95 you pay here!
Because we are small we are never going to bulk buy a bunch of shirts plus i think Australia is just in general expensive?
So we have finally found a way to get people some cool shirts for a decent price (less than $20) and all the shipping is decent too with U.S being just under $4 and international is around $10 so even our Australian peeps can get a better shirt for less! YAY
The service we are using is Treespring and its awesome…so far; i’m confident the print will be good (its the same one i used for the one i wear) but if its crap no worries as they give 100% refund!
It works by meeting a target (ours is 20) and if we do then cool everyone pays and gets a sweet tee, if we don’t then no-one pays and they don’t print the tee; which is super low risk for everyone.
We thought best give it a shot and if it goes well, then we will do some more! but if not no drama; we are pretty small and i think you need to have a biggish following to really justify tees.
