Review: Teespring Crowdfunded Apparel for a Cause

One of the things I loved about self-publishing my book was the ability to print copies on demand as they were ordered so that no paper was wasted. On demand T-shirt printing for a cause is the idea behind Teespring, a crowdfunding platform for groups, causes, and communities to design and sell custom apparel.

Anyone can design a shirt which they can then sell via social media or anywhere else online and the seller keeps all of the profits. Raise money for any cause you like and your supporters get a great incentive plus become personal billboard for your cause.

The best part is 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. And a “verified donation” icon will make sure the funds are all going to the right place.

I only wish there were organic T-shirt options but there are plenty of made-in-the-USA brands available including American Apparel. Perhaps if the site continues to do well they will start taking organic cotton requests. In the meantime, at least you can give and get a wearable token to support your cause.
