Online Custom T-shirt Stores

June 7, 2017

Did you know we offer online stores for your custom t-shirts?  Online stores are intended to make the ordering process and collecting payments much easier for you. Whether you’re trying to raise money for a fundraising event, or whether you’d like an easier way for folks to pay and submit their t-shirt size, our online stores might be a great option 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, and we’ll create a custom online store for your organization, business, or event. The online custom t-shirt stores are temporary stores for preorders only, they are not print-on-demand stores open year round.  The store is open for a designated time period, and when the store closes, we print all the shirt orders, and pass them along to you along with the order forms for distribution.

Online custom stores can also be used as a group order form if there is one entity that is paying for all the shirts. In this case, there would be no price listed in the online store, visitors would not make any payments, and your store would be password protected.

Pricing for Online Custom T-Shirt Stores

We offer free setup for an online store with up to 3 products.  A product is one design on one garment type.  If it’s the same design going on youth and adult t-shirts, that would be considered two products.  You can offer only one shirt color, or many shirt colors without that affecting your number of products.

After 3 products, the cost per product is $5.00 per item to list, with a maximum of 25 products per web store.   You set the price for the shirts in your online store- make sure you get a quote from us before you decide on your price.  Estimate how many orders you’ll receive in your online store, and a good hint is to price them at the price break that’s one below what you think you’ll reach. To avoid underpricing your shirts, set a realistic goal, or even underestimate how many shirts you’ll sell.

We charge the standard pricing at the discount quantity price break that your store reaches when the store closes, our discount quantity price breaks are at 5, 10, 15, 25, 50, 75, 100, 150, 225, 350, 500, 1000, and 2000 quantities. We also pass along the 3% processing fees that we’re charged by Paypal.  If you set the store up to be a fundraiser and you price your shirts higher than what we charge, we write you a check for the amount your web store has raised when you pick up the shirts.
