Custom printed fundraising t-shirts are a great source for making money for a cause. They also make great incentives in obtaining memberships or participation in things like camps, vacation bible schools, and various events. Everyone likes to feel like they are getting something for their money and a custom t-shirt with your message is a great product.
When it comes to custom printed fundraising t-shirts people are getting something for donating their hard earned money. When they receive a custom t-shirt for their donation the purpose is twofold. First they are getting something “free” in return for their donation and second, the t-shirt they are receiving has the message and the purpose for your fundraising on it which just creates more awareness.
Schools use custom t-shirts as a give away to kids participating in their sports camps. They’ll state registration includes a t-shirt or a free t-shirt. Well we know the t-shirt isn’t actually free as it’s built into the cost of the camp. Regardless, in addition to the fun the camp provides and the skills you’ll learn during the camp, you’ll walk away with those skills and a t-shirt stating you participated in the camp. So it’s a great promotional piece for the camp and at the same time a bonus to the campers as well all know kids like wearing t-shirts.
Custom printed fundraising t-shirts are very cost effective and the ROI on t-shirts is enormous. The concept certainly works better with larger fundraising efforts where the volume of shirts needed is high. This lowers the cost of the shirts making the dollar amount going towards fundraising higher, but it means you are reaching a broader audience so the potential is much higher.
