Announcing Men’s and Women’s Dri-Tees!

Heads up, Springers. Now that you’ve locked your final holiday shirt sales for the year, it’s time to start thinking about 2015. Luckily, we’ve got some big news to help make sure you begin your year on a positive (and lucrative!) note.

Starting today, you will find Hanes Men’s and Women’s Dri-Tees in the designer. Dri-Tees differ from normal cotton tees because they’re made of a 100% polyester interlock jersey. This allows the fabric to wick away moisture quickly and keep the wearer dry. Even better, the material offers excellent UV protection with an Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) rating of 50+.

Given the Dri-Tees ability to keep wearers, well, cool and dry, these shirts are perfect for 2015 resolution makers looking to get fit and hit the gym. A colorful quick-drying tee is the perfect way to look trendy and upbeat for the new year, while running your heart out on a treadmill.

A few design ideas:

Dri-Tees are available in men’s and women’s versions. Men’s shirts come in white, black, graphite, deep red, deep royal, navy, maroon and safety green; women’s shirts come in black, navy, light blue, white and pink. Based on our internal research and testing, we’re recommending a $27.99 selling price for these Activewear products though feel free to run your own tests! Note: Dri Tees require a special printing process due to the polyester fabric, so they have to be featured on separate campaigns. But linking different campaigns together is easy with our recent release of storefronts.

We’re also announcing a $20,000 cash contest based on the popularity of our Kids Tee contest a few weeks ago. Sign-up for the contest and find a live leaderboard here!

 

Announcing Twitch and Teespring

Today we’re thrilled to announce the launch of a formal partnership between Teespring and Twitch, the leading video platform and community for gamers, which will bring high-quality custom merchandise to life for Twitch broadcasters and their fans.

Back in August we did an initial test run with 24 Twitch broadcasters who sold limited-edition Teespring products to their followers, and the results blew us away. In just two weeks, this first batch of broadcasters sold thousands of products and their fans showed an outpouring of support through comments, tweets, and photos of their new custom gear.

tsd08_ManVsGame_front Starting now, we’re initiating a program to give thousands of members of the Twitch Partner program this same ability to offer custom apparel that reflects their personal brand. Teespring will be integrated into Twitch’s broadcaster dashboard, making it easy for broadcasters to create custom designs their fans will love. Their products will be displayed on a Teespring-powered storefront in the official Twitch Store, and you’ll also find many of the shirts sold directly on broadcasters’ channel pages.

We couldn’t be more excited about what this means for the Twitch community and we see this as an important step toward a world where anyone with a following is empowered to make a living online in the way they choose.

Twitch has long been a friend of Teespring’s, and we’re thrilled to now call them a partner. Our goal at Teespring is to empower people to engage and delight their communities through custom products that they love, and Twitch is a perfect platform to help make that goal a reality.

More Money, Just Cause – Holiday Hoodie Special

Winter is an awesome time – holidays, hot chocolate, and perhaps best of all: hoodie season.

Hoodies are a favorite amongst Teespring creators. Not only can you accommodate shoppers in colder climates, but you also have a higher profit margin than with regular tees. As of today, that deal is even sweeter.

Now until the end of the year, we’re unbelievably excited to announce a $3 bonus for every Gildan hoodie you sell.

Our Lips are Zipped

Just kidding, we’re awful at keeping secrets.

As of today, you’ll find a Hanes Full Zip Hoodie option available in the Teespring designer.

Over the past few weeks you might have seen a few surveys on our site asking about the types of products you’d like to see next on Teespring. People like you — ambitious Teespring creators and passionate customers– submitted thousands of replies. The results poured in, and the final polls showed clear results.

And hey, who would we be if we didn’t give the people what they want?
