T Shirt question - nonprofit

by teej8
10 replies
I was hoping for some advice from T Shirt sellers. I volunteer for a non profit and I had the idea of using services like Teespring to print our shirts. My question is about quality. In your opinion, which service has the highest quality product and shipping? We were going to promote our link on our webstie and though our newsletter to our donors so they could make a donation and receive a tshirt.

I appreciate any feedback or ideas. Thank you!

    are you printing to sell online or are you printing for people in organization.

    If you want tee shirts to sell or provide at your local events you would probably be better served finding a local tee shirt printer to supply what you need. They will probably be a lot cheaper.

    If, on the other hand, you want to sell tees online then teespring is a good start. or just google tee shirt printing online and you will find many offers. do your due diligence and find the best deal for your needs

    If you're looking to print on demand after a t-shirt is ordered, I'd go with Printify. If you're looking to buy shirts in bulk and sell them (better margins), I'd go with UberPrints.

    Thank you!

    We are trying to avoid the expense and time involved with printing and shipping, so the plan was to put a link on our electronic newsletter. The only concern we have is that the quality and service will be so poor that it may create bad blood with our donors.

    Thanks again for all the feedback. It's appreciated!

      You're looking for a print on demand company then. When you receive an order; it will go to them and they'll print and ship the shirt within 2-3 days.

      I recommend My Locker on Printify. They're located in Michigan and they offer the best price/quality/value that I've seen yet.

        As this is an international forum, I should just point out that you mean the US.

        Given that, you should focus on fulfillment companies based in the US, to cut down on delivery times. Regarding quality, unless you have access to the latest printing machinery and a reliable source of blank shirts, you'd be unlikely to be able to match the quality of any established T-shirt manufacturer.

        But as the Princess said, what sells a T-shirt, profit or non profit, is what's on it.
