Using Custom T-shirts for a fundraiser

Using Custom T-shirts for a fundraiser

We wrote this blog post on our Talkingink Custom T-shirts site to let people know how profitable a well designed custom t-shirt can be for the purposes of fundraising. When it comes to fundraising of any kind, the idea is to maximize the money coming in while minimizing the money going out. Giving our customers a free online store as their selling platform puts them ahead of the game in a traditional sense of selling online.

That blog post is here Start A T-shirt Fundraiser

We have worked with 4 people on a custom t-shirt fundraiser in 2018 alone. One particular store raised over $1,000 in the first week of sales. This particular store had no idea how much money they could raise. Another store we built for a customer offered sweatshirts and t-shirts and they surpassed the $300 they were hoping to raise to offset field trip costs for a class. Talkingink Custom T-shirts handled all building the store, order processing, shipping, and dispersing of the profits for the fundraiser. Feedback was it was the easiest fundraiser they have ever done.

Currently we are in the process of starting a store for a group of medical professionals looking to raise funds for their schooling. In this particular case the customer did all of the leg work ahead of time to ensure a successful fundraising campaign. She developed the interest and now we can’t get the store launched soon enough.

If you have a purpose and need to raise funds contact us. Talkingink Custom T-shirts is the fundraising arm of Kirkwood Trading Company. Our goal is to help you raise money with a custom t-shirt fundraiser and we’ll do so in the most convenient way possible. So you can spend your time doing other things.

We get a lot of customers who have ordered their shirts through an online company and while there have been many successful orders, the bad ones have been truly a bad experience. The shirts weren’t ready on time, the shirts didn’t fit, the printing was sub standard, the list goes on and on and when people try to contact someone they end up talking to someone 5 states away who offers little help.

In any given month we receive at least two phone calls from people who ordered their custom t-shirts online only to find out a day or two before they need their shirts that they won’t be ready. So with little options they call us for a quick turn around.

What’s nice about using a local St. Louis custom t-shirt printing company is you avoid both shipping costs and shipping times. Don’t be fooled by companies that offer free shipping because you can’t ship something for free and the shirt company certainly isn’t paying for the shipping, it’s simply built into the cost of the t-shirts. So you are waiting longer for your t-shirts and paying much more than you would be ordering them from a local St. Louis custom t-shirt printing company.

Ordering through a local St. Louis custom t-shirt printing company also allows you the benefit of seeing and feeling the shirts if you want so you know what you are buying. Quality isn’t an issue as you know exactly what the shirt looks, feels, and wears like. Plus you stimulate the local economy. Often times you pay less aside from saving on shipping simply because the pricing locally is less than it is in bigger states.

While Kirkwood Trading Company does most of our work via online and email, which allows both us and the customer to track orders as far as sizing, direction, and specific specs for a job, we are always a phone call away and many times customers like to come in and meet with us when placing an order. Though it’s not neccessary so there is the convenience of working online for customers who like to work that way. We always send digital proofs to our customers to they can see exactly how their shirts will look when they receieve them.

Custom Work Safety T-shirts

Custom work safety t-shirts have become a must have in recent years with the rules and regulations by OSHA. So in order to be in compliance on job sites companies must outfit their workers in safety green or safety orange t-shirts. The logical choice is to customize these with your company logo on them. Some companies will see this as a new expense and having to spend more money now than they had to in years past.

For companies that embrace these regulations then they understand they’ll have several walking billboards in the form of custom work safety T-shirts out and about town. We have worked with several companies who use their custom work safety t-shirts as their only form of advertising. The most popular companies to benefit from this are lawncare companies, independent contractors, and tree care companies. However we have several companies who embrace the custom work safety t-shirts because you never know what opportunities can arise when your company name is spread around town.

The nice thing about custom work safety t-shirts is that most of the time companies choose to put a simple black screen print on the shirts because black shows up great on safety green and safety orange apparel. Keeping it a one color print means the shirts are as cost effective as possible.

And work safety gear has come a long way and is not limited to t-shirts. You can now get tall tees, hoodies, zip hoodies, long sleeve shirts, jackets, hats, beanies, and even all of these types of styles with reflective striping on them as well.

Custom T-shirts for wedding party

The custom t-shirts for wedding party is a huge trend that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. Whether it’s team bride, team groom, last fling before the ring shirts or tanks, it’s a popular trend that hasn’t even hit it’s twilight. In fact this trend may last decades because it’s actually pretty fun. Why noy show off the matrimonial posse with matching tees or tank tops? It gets everyone involved and it’s an immediate ice breaker and fun for all who wear!

One thing for certain, our orders for custom wedding party tshirts and tanks was up 100% this year. People are enjoying the experience and what better way to show solidarity when you have a destination bachelor or bachelorette party to say Memphis or Nashville, two big hotspots for midwest wedding parties. We’ve printed the subtle to the outrageous and everything in between. That just depends on the taste of what is typically the best man or the maid of honor. However, we don’t judge. We get a kick out of all it. Since it’s a great way for a party to come together we enjoy working with the wedding party on what arguably is the best night of the whole getting married experience.

Kirkwood Trading Company carries a full line of t-shirts from standard cotton to super soft blends as well as tons of tanks for both women and men. Another popular choice is custom hats but keep in mind the turn around on custom embroidered hats is a little longer than screen printed tees and tanks. And one thing we know for sure is typically these wedding party t-shirts are a last minute idea. Albeit a great last minute idea but last minute nonetheless.

But for many it’s a one time occasion and I’m not talking about the bride or groom. I’m talking about the bridesmaids and groomsmen. Who knows how many times any particular person will get to experience being part of the wedding. Wedding party t-shirts make a great commemorative piece.

Contact Kirkwood Trading Company for your next wedding party t-shirts and we’ll be happy to make sure they are shirts to remember.
