Teespring alternatives?

by 58 comments
I'm looking for Teespring alternatives with low international shipping costs. People don't pay $10.50 for international shipping if a shirt is $15.

Let me know!

      No, do you have experience with them? The starting prices seems high to me.

    I discovered fabrily.com last month and they seem to be the best option for most countries. They are based in Europe but their shipping prices are low enough to make them good to use for all places, including USA.

    Good info on Fabrily. Cheers.

    My Hoodies were $39, Tees $19.

    I would check out Fabrily as mentioned above. It is just like TeeSpring but based in the UK with lower European shipping.

      Have you tried them? I'd be interested to find out a bit more about the different options. I am pretty new to this, but I am based in London and trying to find out what would be the best platform to use.

    Fabrily.com is rubbish. I emailed them 2 weeks back with no response.

    My issue with Teespring is their crappy customer service. Your e-mails take days before they are answered, if at all.

    Spreadshirt seems to have decent shipping costs (even to Canada), not sure what the customer service or campaign tracking is like, can anyone comment on that?

    As others have said, look at fabrily. It is a bit rougher than teesprong, but international shipping prices are much better.

    And yall need to consider how quickly teespring has exploded in the last few months. Their Google trends popularity has just taken off. The poor response times are a direct response to that, it's a growing pain. Their service is phenomenal considering their recent growth.

    Came to know about Fabrily today. Will have a look at there.

    Some of our fellow warriors recommend zazzle.com. I haven't tried it though...

    Great thread, thanks for the info, I'm going to look in to Fabrily.

    People do (and are) paying $10.50 for shipping. I've sold many to people in other countries. So don't just assume that.

    The trick is to have something people really want. If you do then they will buy it no matter what.

      I suspect that is true on so many levels!

    You can use Teezily.com
    It's a very good alternative to Teespring and as they are based in Europe, you avoid the 10.5$ shipping cost.

    They have been helping me build great campaigns. Europe is still quite new to this concept, there are a lot of opportunities there !

    I haven't tried to target other countries aside from the US. But I'm planning to target CA, UK and AU soon.

    Hey Guys,

    Gonna shamelessly plug my own company, got a dozen or so really large former Teespring guys onboard already and really believe were a great alternative to Teespring. Our website is getting a makeover so not much info on it, so email me for more information.

    Advantages of using Teelaunch over Teespring

    1. Lead Time- Your orders are shipped within 1-2 days after the customer orders their shirt. No waiting for campaigns to tip. Since we are located centrally in the United States, 90% of your customers will receive their shirts 2-3 days after printing.

    2. Unlimited Colors- Digital Garment Printing allows you to use up to 11.5 million colors, giving you a HUGE advantage over Teespring and other screen printers who charge by the number of colors.

    3. Huge Print Area- Our printers allow you to print up to 16x20.

    4. Best Prices- We offer you the best price up front, no having to sell hundreds of shirts to reach a price where you can make money.

    5. E-Commerce Cart Integration- By leveraging our shipping provider, Shipstation, we can process you’re orders in real time from all major e-commerce carts, Shopify, WooCommerce, etc.

    6. Durability- Our printing process and inks have been test washed over 50 times and still show the same bright vibrant colors as when it was first printed.

    7. Production Capacity- Our printers have 1000s of excess t-shirt capacity per day, so even your busiest days won’t cause any delay in shipment.

    8. Protect Your Designs- By not using Teespring, scrapers like Teeview can not determine how many shirts you’ve sold, protecting your designs from copycats.

    9. T-Shirt Variety- You are only limited by your imagination, Teelaunch stocks over 1000 SKUs of T-Shirts, Hoodies, and Tanks.

    10. Priority Support- When you talk to Teelaunch, you have a direct line to the owners of the company, no more waiting for days and days to get a response.

    Thanks

      I like the idea of your Teelaunch - particularly the 'design protection' away from the eyes of Teeview and others. What are your postage costs to the UK for tees and hoodies?

      All of that sounds great, but one of the biggest problems with your site is the same as it is with a few of your competitors... you can't just signup, see pricing, and go!

      I don't want to have to contact you to get going, I just want to signup, login, and be able to get moving.

      I'll never understand why sites like yours put artificial hurdles in the way of people looking to buy your products. I like your other services (not shirts), but I have no idea about pricing, no idea how to sign up, and don't want to have to contact you to ask questions that could easily be answered by myself.

      Let me login, see the prices, and decide for myself. No amount of arm-twisting on your part is going to convince me via email... just let me login and use it already!

      The other big question I'd have on your site is one I don't see many people mention, but it's a BIG one.

      TeeSpring actively uses retargeting on FB to help sellers generate more sales on their shirts. I'd think they're doing this for campaigns that hit specific metrics, but you didn't make any mention of this.

      TeeSpring is advertising on behalf of their sellers, spending money out of their pockets to generate more sales. I've had campaigns that generated more sales via TeeSpring's retargeting than I did on my own advertising... enough to push a few campaigns beyond the tipping point.

      Is this something you guys are offering, or is TeeSpring going to continue to be the only one?

      Good stuff, Teelaunch, thanks for letting us know about your tshirt printing company but you should include this info on your site too! 11 million colors is what I need!

      I think most people don't mind the shipping charges if the T-shirt design is a cool one. I know people in Australia pay for shipping. It might really depend on what country they are buying from. Maybe you can target other countries that will pay for your design.

    teespring why is this giving me errror
    "Did you try and upload a full color image?
    Looks like you tried to upload an image with more than 10 colors or shades of gray. Unfortunately, because of the way screen printing works, we aren't able to print images with over 10 colors.

    If you think the system has made a mistake, and your image is under 10 colors, please contact support for assistance."

    I like https://www.teezily.com as its so easy but teespring gave this error above what a shame teespring this why I am looking for another site like teespring.

      Buddy.. Did you try fixing your design so it is in with the color allowance?

      The problem isn't with Teespring, it's with your design. You're going to have the same issues with any platform that uses screen printing (which most do), and even if you do find another platform that allows unlimited colors, you're going to be paying more per shirt for it, eating away at your profits.

    https://fabrily.com ship to
    US and Canada,uk and other country and they allow for any colour and Ii think they don't limit the number of colour like t spring so Im going with them.
    campaigns@fabrily.com (for questions about campaigns) and to support@fabrily.com for every other kind of questions!
    hope this helps

    I'm stuck here on what software I can use to perform some basic tracking. I'm using Bing PPC and Leadpages. I thought I could use the basic tracking in Bing and the simple analytics in Leadpages. I've done a small test, running a handful of targeted ads and a few landing pages, however leadpages shows I have 0% conversions. I'm not even sure if it is tracking when someone actually clicks thru my landing page or if all 3 pages I have tested suck that bad.

    Hey guys I have a simple question regarding promoting my site on twitter, I want to use my twitter account exclusively for marketing purposes and barely any social activity since I don't expect to receive many messages there. My plan is to target specific hashtags within my niche and tweet once or a few times(not spamming) each day with a catchy headline & a link to my site.

    I read a post today on the WF declaring that article marketing was dead. If youíve been on this forum for a while youíve seen this declaration multiple times before. The Warrior said it used to work years ago, but there is no sense in using this outdated bygone strategy today. Let me ask you Ė do people still read articles online? Of course they do and these articles are the lifeblood of some of the most popular web sites on the planet. All publish articles that have outgoing links to further information or the authorís web site. Here are some examples:
