T-Shirt Teespring Crowdfunding

Teespring is a t-shirt crowdfunding platform for groups, causes and communities to design and sell custom apparel. It is a pretty cools concept. Anyone can come and design a shirt which they can then sell via Facebook, Twitter or anywhere else online. The seller keeps all of the profit the shirt earns. People use Teespring as a fundraising tool or just to earn some extra money. Turn your t-shirt concept into reality with no upfront costs. Once you finish your design, your buyers fund the creation of your t-shirts by promising to buy them if you meet your goal. If you do not meet your goal within the time period you specified, then the buys will not be billed. The shirts don’t print and ship until a set end date determined by the seller. This means they pay nothing upfront, take no risk and don’t have to deal with the hassle of ordering the right number of shirts.
I designed my own t-shirt in about 5 minutes. It is based on inside joke about my dog. My Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Harrison Ford has a certain swagger that is extremely impressive. He is able to lean so well in any position. We often call him the most interesting puppy in the world. The guy that wear this shirt needs to be able to lean extremely well. It’s a great gift for your boyfriends and husbands. You can play designer if you go to teespring.com/design.
