There are so many reasons you can use a fundraiser of selling T-shirts. Let TakeHold Printing help you design the perfect, profitable design for your fundraiser. We are proud to serve Nashville with valuable screen-printed T-shirts.

Why Use T-Shirts as a Fundraiser?

Everyone loves T-shirts! You can design something simple yet fun that will also get the word out about your cause. Choose a design that has something about your cause and it will show your patrons just what their donating to. Screen printed tees are built to last so you know you are offering a great product!

T-shirts are also pretty easy money. There are so many ways to sell them and you can make the most money for your cause. You set the precedent and can be in total control over the whole fundraiser.  

Ways to Sell T-Shirts for a Fundraiser

Here we will give you ideas of places you can sell your T-shirts. You can do online as well, but for a specific cause, you may get more return in person. Some ideas include:

  • Sell at sporting events – if you are trying to raise funds for a specific sports team (little league and beyond), what better location? You can target your audience there. 
  • Raffle prizes – this is excellent to earn quick cash without much cost to you. Choose a number of shirts and offer a raffle for a few dollars each
  • Catchy slogans – the “Keep Calm” shirts seem to always be popular. You can also come up with your own
  • Start a website – you can auction off shirts or let people order them from your own site. They can choose everything and let them have them shipped to them
  • Create team spirit – no matter what type of fundraiser you are doing, you can create a spirit around the cause. This will make your shirts sell better.

Develop a Fundraising Team

When it comes to fundraising for a specific cause, you never want to go into it blindly. That is where a fundraising team would go into play. You can select a specific number of people who would work together and brainstorm ideas. They would be the team who would decide everything about the shirt, down to the very last detail. 

You can give your team an idea of what you are looking for. They will make the final decisions about the details of the shirt itself. You may even choose to make yourself a project manager. That way, you will be part of all the decisions. 

Know How Much You Need

Have an idea of how much money you need for your team or cause. You can do a simple formula of how much supplies will cost you. This will mean counting the number of shirts you will order and the print to the shirt cost. You will also need to factor in the design fee if you are having it designed by a professional. 

Knowing how much supplies will be is important. Then, you will have an idea of how much you need to charge per T-shirt. Finally, you can estimate how much you will make per T-shirt. The idea is to try and keep cost low so you can make more profit in the end.

Why Should You Design a Shirt for Your Business?

When it comes to showing off your business and getting the word out, a T-shirt is a surefire way to do it! People notice T-shirts and there is a whole group of people who collect them. Here are a few ideas…

  • Promotion – this can be as a giveaway to potential or returning clients. This is a great way to get your name out there
  • Values of your brand – this is great for letting others know what your company is all about
  • Solidarity – a shirt that all employees where show that you are a team. Company uniforms can make the same mistake, but this is more fun!
  • Merchandising 
  • Special events and meetings
  • And more…

Some people give them to friends and family as a way to get the word out. Others will do them as a giveaway to their clients to further get some recognition. 

Coming up With a Unique Style

There are different ways you decide on a T-shirt design for your business. One of the questions you need to ask yourself is what do you want your new shirt design to say to your clients. The key is to design a catchy design that gets noticed while also speaking to your personality. 

Think about color schemes and imagery. You also can add your business logo as well as a catchy phrase that will get attention. Really brainstorm the creativity from your mind as well as your staff to really get a great design going. 

T-Shirt Style

With so many shirt styles on the market, you can come up with something for everyone. Long sleeve or short, crew neck or v-neck, women’s cut or unisex, there are nearly endless styles. You could even have a variety made just to have on-hand to be able to appease a new client. 

You can also decide if you want a variety of colors of your T-shirts. Does your company have a specific color scheme? If so, you would want to stay in that scheme. If not, you can choose so many varieties and colors. 

Evaluate Your Design

To meet your business goals, you will need to make sure you still within your budget. That means knowing what your budget is first and foremost. Then, you will need to factor in your designing process, shirt style, and screen printing into your time and budget. 

Get thoughts and ideas from family and friends who maybe don’t have a stake in the company. They will be your best audience and let you know what they think of your design. We are usually our worst critic. If you have a design you love, though, you can’t go wrong. 

Screen Printing Process

The process for screen printing is really just how it sounds. A mesh screen is used with a frame along with ink. A stencil design would be laid on top of the fabric and a squeegee is used to push the ink across the shirt. Remove the screen and voila, a screen printed shirt. 

Each color of the item is done separately. Therefore, the process can take a little longer if you have more colors. You will then have a professionally designed shirt.

Why Wear a Holiday T-Shirt?

Designing your own holiday shirts are not really a new concept. There is lots of fun to be had at your holiday parties, though. There are so many designs and ideas you can come up with for a new holiday shirt design.

You can really make a statement at your holiday parties! Some can even be a real icebreaker. Do you have a funny quote from a holiday Christmas movie you love? Add it to your shirt design and have fun with it for the upcoming holiday season. 

How Do You Choose a Holiday Design?

When choosing new holiday designs for your T-shirts, you want to think about color and design. You also want to decide on what you are trying to say. Are you trying to make a statement or just have some fun with your design? Only you can answer that.

Another idea is to have matching shirts. You can choose a design for a company or if you are doing a family vacation together. You can either decide on an identical design or even just something similar. 

Popular Holiday Designs

Some of the most popular holiday designs come from movies for the season. What are some of your favorite movies? Think about some of those movies and their popular sayings that come from that movie and you can put that into your holiday design.

Some other popular designs, especially here in the south, is a monogram! Nothing makes the ladies happier than having their monogram inside a Christmas ornament or on an ornament held by The Grinch hand. If The Grinch isn’t your thing, you can come up with some other ideas as well. 

Are You Going to an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party?

This is a popular party during the holiday season. Many people choose just an old Christmas sweater from a store. They will also add maybe some bling like lights to the shirt to make it festive and over-the-top.

You can choose and design your own! Find a design you love and have it printed right onto a shirt. This way you can choose a style of shirt you love without the old-timey sweater design.

Keep It Simple With Word Art

Another popular holiday shirt design is using word art. We all know a picture can say a lot. With this idea, you can choose the let the word BE the design. 

You can choose a design you have hand drawn. Make sure you choose fonts that work well together. If you’d like, we can work with you and come up with an idea. 

Gift-Giving With Custom Tees

Custom designs make excellent gifts for the holidays. You can put a funny quote or say for just about everyone on your shopping list. This is one way to get something for that hard-to-buy-for person on your list.
