UPDATE: T-shirts are available until February 22, 2016. Click HERE for more info.
Hello ladies & gentlemen! I need your input!
A lot of women, friends, and family have been asking if I’d be making Bloomin’ Uterus t-shirts. The buttons are flying off of the shelf, and people now want shirts! So I’ve been working with the designers at Teespring to turn the logo into something they could toss on a t-shirt. Conversion and color restrictions altered the logo from photo-realistic to a simple graphic, but I think it makes it a bit of beautiful abstract art. ❤
Each basic t-shirt would sell for $20 ($5 profit). Other options available would be a women’s fitted t-shirt, women’s fitted v-neck t-shirt, long-sleeve t-shirt, and a hoodie. Those would be offered at *slightly* higher prices, with an approximate $5 profit for each. I know $5 doesn’t sound like a lot, but I really want to keep these shirts affordable for everyone. The only way to increase the profit is to increase the cost : bah! BAH I SAY! 🙂
As usual, I will donate all profits to the Endometriosis Foundation of America, just because the profits should go to a research organization that raises awareness and researches a cure for this disease. I’ll have no up-front costs to recoup, would be able to grant you your T-Shirt Wish, and the E.F.A. would get some money from this craziness. It’s truly win-win.
And I’ve got a few ideas, but would love to pass them by you first. The white t-shirt looks the best with the logo (it gets “lost” in color or black). Please feel free to comment below with your input, thoughts, or your preferences! I’ve got 3 Options for ya:
Option A: the Bloomin’ Uterus on the front is as low as the printer will allow (so as close to our Uterus as possible…for a bit of fun). The back reads “Endometriosis Awareness & Support” followed by the name and webpage.
Option B: The Bloomin’ Uterus logo is located near the left chest area. The back reads “Endometriosis Awareness & Support” followed by the name and webpage.
Option C: The Bloomin’ Uterus logo is located near the left chest area. The back reads “Endometriosis Awareness & Support” followed by the name and webpage with the added tagline, “We are all still beautiful.”
Option D: Like parts of A, B, and C and want to mix them around a bit? Let me know.
For those of you unfamiliar with Teespring, it’s a marketing webpage where you design a t-shirt and have a limited amount of time to sell a minimum number of t-shirts. For example, I could have 3 weeks to sell 20 shirts. If I don’t sell 20 shirts, the shirts will not be printed and nobody will receive a shirt, even if they’ve pre-ordered. If we do sell at least 20 shirts, everyone who ordered then has to pay and they are each shipped their shirt directly from Teespring.
This is still in the baby stages, so I’ve got nothing but time. I would like to launch the shirt campaign in March, in honor of Endometriosis Awareness month! 🙂
Sounds like a plan. 🙂
