With Christian T Shirt Fundraisers you can raise funds and awareness at the same time! It's a really great idea.
What you will do is decide on what type of T Shirts you want printed...
For example: Your Churches name and photo, or a verse out of the Bible etc.. Then you will sell the T Shirts to your supporters and others.
Pretty simple hey!
And yes it can be very profitable and rewarding.
every time someone wears one of the T Shirts you will be raising
awareness about God and your Church! It couldn't be better.
Once you have decided on what to use above you will then have a few more things to consider...
Your first step towards running a profitable Christian T shirt fundraiser is by picking the right design and themes.
You will want something that will be popular among your supporters and that they will just have to buy.
It could be a simple shirt that just has your Church name and a Verse from the Bible, or it could be one with an image of your Church or of Jesus printed on it!
what about a T shirt focusing on a certain section of your church like
your Youth Group. There are lots of different options so be creative
with it and decide on what will be the bestsellers!
Obviously if you choose to use a Christian T shirt fundraiser company you will have loads of different Christian shirt designs to choose from... Once again find the designs that will be most popular.
Another really great time to hold Christian T shirt Fundraisers is after Church events. Like for example, after a youth camp!
Your design would obviously then be a photo of your youth group at the camp, with a caption like, "Westmore Church Youth Camp, June 2009!"
The next step will be to get your desired amount of shirts printed (That's if you're not using a company like SSA Stores).
Think carefully about how many shirts you think you will sell... Obviously most (probably all) of your sales will go to members of your church so do a head count of who you think will buy...
Or you could show people the design and then get them to pre-order the shirts... That way you will know exactly how many you will need. I would also suggest that you take payment for the shirts when people order them.
Of course, if you're using an online apparel store or a T Shirt Crowdfunding campaign, then you won't need to order the shirts. You can just send members and supporters to your store or Crowdfunding page, when you've finished designing!
Advertising your shirts properly shouldn't be too hard as you will mainly be selling to your members and supporters.
You will have many a chance to announce that the shirts are on sale like during sermons or at meetings, but you should also advertise and sell by using the following methods...
Some other places you could sell your shirts at would be at all your events, local markets (if you have a market stand there), and at other local events.
I wish you great success!
