I’ve been struggling to find a reasonable and affordable way to sell shirt designs. I’ve tried Zazzle, CafePress, Teespring, Spreadshirt, applying for Amazon Merch (no response yet), asking other sellers for advice, you name it, and nothing has been a good fit yet. The problem? Mainly, it comes down to price. These services all start with such a high base price, that after trying to even make a $5 cut for HL as well, the prices end up at $25, $30, and more (before shipping), which are completely unacceptable prices for a shirt in my opinion.
I’ve finally found a service and model that looks promising called Bonfire, which is basically Kickstarter for selling shirt designs. I was able to get the price down to $15, which includes a $5 cut to help support Halloween Love. Another way to put it, that’s a $10 shirt + a $5 donation to us. That’s amazing! And we only need to sell 11 shirts before March 18th. People who commit to buy are only charged if the campaign is successful.
The design is a really simple, vintage, thrift store like design. In other words, the kind of Halloween shirt I’d want to wear myself.
If you like the design + want to help support HL:
