As some of you may know (because I can’t help but brag on him sometimes!), my husband Matt is a partner in a food truck business and will be launching his very own food truck, Lilu’s Cuban Press this year. Just in time for the big opening, I connected with a company called Tee Originals, where you can create your own t-shirts easily and with no upfront cost.
Starting a business can be an expensive process, and creating merchandise to offer to fans and supporters usually requires a substantial upfront investment. There can be a design charge, buying the actual shirts (with a hefty minimum order), and printing cost.
However, Tee Originals is an awesome alternative for a new business. Users create a T-shirt on the easy to navigate website and start a campaign, allowing supporters to purchase shirts directly through the site. When the campaign ends, Tee Originals will pack and ship the shirts to each of the contributors.
Tee Originals has made creating your own merchandise simple. The first step is to design the product: choose the type of apparel (there are a ton of available options, from basic to long-sleeved), pick the shirt color, add text, and add logos/images. Next, you’ll decide how long your campaign will run. Finally, make a campaign page which tells people about your business or cause, and you’re all set!
After seeing the cost for your particular design, you are able to set your price. This way you know exactly how much profit you will make on each shirt. It’s an excellent way for small businesses to make a little something extra. It is also a fun and unique fundraising idea for schools and organizations.
Tee Originals offers design support and help promoting campaigns, so you can rest assured that things will go smoothly throughout the entire process. Tee Originals was created by one of the top screen printers in the industry, and is one of the leaders in custom techniques such as the vintage/distressed look, glow-in-the dark, and foil (metallic).
Matt and I worked together to create our design, and the process was a lot of fun! (Even though it was so easy that it only took less than 20 minutes!) I can’t wait to wear my very own Lilu’s Cuban Press shirt, and hopefully see others in them as well!
