Online Custom T-shirt Stores

August 29, 2019

Did you know we offer online stores for your custom t-shirts?  Whether you’re trying to raise money for a fundraising event, looking for a simple e-commerce option for your designs or need an easier way for folks to pay and submit their t-shirt size, our online store options are designed to be simple and customizable to work for you.

Online Custom T-Shirt Stores online custom store

Here’s how it works: You send us your design, the garment type(s), brand(s), and color(s) you want the design on. We then create a custom online store for your organization, business, or event.  Your store will be open for a designated time period.  When it closes, we print all the shirt orders and pass them along to you for distribution.

Online stores can also be used as a group order form when there is one entity paying for all the shirts.

Pricing for Online Custom T-Shirt Stores

We quote the online stores at the 25 price break point with no minimum order. We will provide you with a quote to help you set the price for each item. There is a 3% payment processing fee for all stores.  You will want to consider the processing fee and any handling fees when setting your prices.  You’ll receive a check for the store’s profit when you pick up your order.

If you are offering embroidery in your store, there will be a 1-time set-up fee of $35.00 if the design is not something we have embroidered for you before.

Timeline For Online Stores

Once you have decided to set-up an online store, we request that you fill out our request form and email over your design details.  The set-up time for your store is 5 business days from the time we have both the art and the request form.

Stores are open a minimum of one week (7 days).  The maximum recommended run time is three weeks.  Shorter run-times create a sense of urgency and tend to have higher sales than stores that are open for longer periods of time.

Once the store has been closed, the turn-around time for completion of your items is 10 business days.

The shortest turn-around time for an online store from the time you submit your information to pick up is 21 days.  Please keep that in mind when scheduling your pick up date.

Additional Information

A single design, is one piece of art with one print method and color scheme.  If you have art that you would like printed and embroidered, that would be considered two designs.  If you have art you would like printed in black on some garments and then in white on other garments, that would also be considered two designs.

A product is one design on one garment type.  Offering Adult T-shirts, Youth T-shirts, Adult Hoodies and Youth Hoodies with the same design would constitute four products.

When choosing your garment colors, you will want to pick colors offered in all of your products.  If you want to print on Royal Blue, Black and Red T-shirts, you can use those three colors for all other products in your order.  But if you want to print on three different colors for the sweatshirts, those would be considered Additional.
