I am considering creating and selling a Bomb Squad booster type of t-shirt as a fundraiser. Can any of you recommend an online T-shirt company that is good and cheap? It would be simply lettering (one color) on the back and front - no multi-color graphics or anything. Our official team shirts are printed here in town and I like to support local businesses, but paying $14 per shirt with white lettering only is not useful for a fundraising project.
When i had my band, we used Spreadshirt.com to design our shirts. we had one made on the site and it costed about 16 dollars. we then took it to a local business and had them recreate it at about $8 a piece for 24 pieces. usually if you get at least 24 (+/- a few depending on the company), the screen will be free with the purchase.
I know. Small town. There has been no competition locally. You’ve seen the Bomb Squad shirts - nothing to them. I have 3 teams and 5 members in my family; we spend A LOT on t-shirts. (One reason I am so grateful to IFI for letting us use 16 as the VEX team number, so we can just use our FRC shirts!)
I just got a quote from a local supplier here for a simple black T-Shirt with our 4 color logo on the front and nothing on the back and it was $ 7.50 a shirt. If we put something on the back with one color I can’t think it would be that much more. Do you want me to check with them and see what it would be for your shirts? I don’t know what shipping would be but I would be willing to check for you if you want. Let me know. ::safety:: Kris Carey Team 1625 Winnovation
I’m curious - what will your fundraising tee say? We’ve talked about how careful your team has to be regarding its name. Also, I think this is a great way to respect the school policy and find an alternate way for a fundraiser.
We have some funny phrases we use in our documentation/ bus plan and such and I am thinking about using those. Maybe I will do a different one every year, so everyone has to get a new shirt!
One of our mentors found a shirt that says “Bomb Technician - if you see me running, try and keep up.” So I was thinking of something like “I am with the Bomb Squad. If you see me running, try and keep up” on the back and then our 3 teams’ numbers on the front.
