Our next batch of FAQ comes from the creative minds from the Weapons of Mass Creation Fest. A team of Teespring employees attended in mid-August, mixing and mingling during three days of inspiration, collaboration and self-expression.
A handful of solid questions popped up, and here are the answers:
Q: How does the campaigner make money?
A: When they launch a successful campaign that tips (or meets its sales goal).
Your profit comes down to the difference between the base price (an amount we quote to you) and your selling price (which you set). Before you launch your campaign, you’ll be able to configure these options and determine the best fit for you.
Selling Price – Base Price = Your Profit!
Need an example? Let’s say you choose a Ringspun Premium Tee with a base price of $8.05 per shirt:
Next, you go on to set your sales goal and price. The sales goal is set to 50 shirts, and the asking price is $22. Your profit would be $13.95 per shirt. If you meet your sales goal, you would make about $697.
In the example below, the sales goal is 30 shirts. At an asking price of $20 per shirt, you would make a $11.58 profit on each one. Once you met your goal, your profit would be $347.
As you can see, everything is outlined for you so you know all the deets before you launch!
Q: How many sales are needed before the campaign goes to print?
A: You tell us! You set the sales goal, and once it has been met, your campaign is guaranteed to go to print. The minimum sales goal is 10 shirts.
Q: Do buyers get shirts shipped directly to them, or do I have to hand them out myself?
A: Consider it done. We’re responsible for the production and distribution of your product, which is funded by your buyers’ purchases. There is never any cost to you, or legwork on your end.

A: None! Your artwork, your property. In our Terms of Service, you agree that you are the owner, or licensee, of all rights associated with any created or uploaded artwork or text, including but not limited to, the trademarks and copyrights that may be associated with said material.
Q: How does Teespring make its money?
A: How kind of you to inquire! Teespring makes a flat fee per t-shirt you sell, which is included in the quoted base price you see while designing your item. We do not take a percentage of your profit margin.
Q: Who takes care of marketing the shirt?
A: You do, and we have lots of great tips to get you started! Check out these blog posts for starters:
