Offering t-shirts as a reward for crowdfunding is a great idea. It makes your backers feel good and it’s free publicity too – we still wear promo t-shirts years after we were given them. But there’s plenty of traps you can fall into. Here’s 5 T-Shirt Reward Tips for a Successful Kickstarter and Indiegogo Campaign.
So, you’re thinking of ordering custom t-shirts?
Good idea! But whether you are getting them for your company, for a weekend away with friends, or as promo giveaways, it definitely pays to spend a few minutes reviewing these questions before ordering custom t-shirts and spending your cash.
Here’s a few things to consider. Hopefully they will save you both time AND money.
Christmas business gifts, such as sweaters and t-shirts, are great way to say thank you to your employees, your clients, and earn you some good holiday PR. It only takes a little effort to come up with corporate Christmas gift ideas that really stand out from the crowd. Plus, you’ll have created something that people will want (and hopefully wear more than just over the festive season!). And the potential rewards are huge!
So, which t-shirt to print on?
There’s a lot of choice when it comes to t-shirt brands. We’ve simplified the process for you by choosing three great options on our main ordering page, but we know sometimes it’s good to get the lowdown on all the options on how to choose which t-shirt to print on. We’ve rounded up the contenders from American Apparel, Gildan, Fruit of The Loom and Continental below – these are ordered from lowest price to highest.
So, you’ve got some great ideas for some custom t-shirt designs, and you’re pretty sure that people would pay you actual money for them. Congratulations, your custom t-shirt store is almost ready to go. So what’s next? Print the shirts and get rich? Yep, but first you have two basic options when it comes to printing – either set up a print on demand store, or order your shirts in advance, in bulk. Which one should you choose?
Before you decide, you should think about a few things:

5 reasons why you should make custom t-shirts for your company
How to get more customers with promotional merchandise, and how to do it better.
Limited Edition T-shirt Number 2:
Designed by Adam at Croatoan Design.
It’s maybe stating the obvious, but we live and breathe t-shirts here at Ramp HQ. And we’ve written before about how we think t-shirts are a great way to say “thank you” to your customers or users. So it’s only right that we lead by example. When you place an order with us, you’ll get a very special limited edition t-shirt. For free. In the size of your choice.
The first limited edition design is now totally gone, so we’re happy to launch our second design. Check it out:
If you’re wondering how companies can use t-shirts to grow their users and build a community, then you need to check out ClickFunnels. It’s a service to help you build any kind of marketing funnel for your website. They’ve clearly thought about it a huge amount, and baked t-shirts into this part of their customer acquisition process from the very start. They’re very smart in using t-shirts to get more users.
t-shirts are a huge part of how they have built a great community around their 48,000 users.
I caught up with Dave Woodward, ClickFunnels’ Chief Business Development Officer, to find a little bit more about their super-smart incentive, and how it works for them.
Introducing our Budget t-shirt: the Fruit of the Loom Original T. This t-shirt goes under a lot of different names, but it’s the basic one in FOTL’s range.
We think this is a good basic choice for promotional giveaways to corporate uniforms to band merch. It’s not really a fashion t-shirt due to the weight and cut, but it’s still really good quality and will keep its shape and colour for many, many washes.
It’s a great value, simple shirt. Straight up and down, this is not a fitted t-shirt so if you’re not sure who will be wearing it and you need make sure they fit, this will work. Screenprinting looks good on it due to the ringpsun cotton – which has a finely knitted gauge for enhanced printability.
Introducing one of our favourite t-shirts. We call it the Premium t-shirt: the American Apparel 50/50, also known as BB401.
Tech firms; Silicon Valley Startups; those who have a good budget and want to send a premium product to favourite customers, and those who want to sell only the finest merch.
The AA50/50 is a super stylish cut, feels incredibly soft to wear and screenprinting looks amazing on it.
