I love wearing homeschooling t-shirts. They always get some sort of attention – whether it’s a chuckle, a curious look, or a conversation that leads to questions, it’s a fun way to bring homeschooling into people’s lives.
Recently I found out a way to design t-shirts to sell and thought it would be something fun to do for our community. I started out by polling our Facebook groups to see what people thought would be good to see on a homeschooling t-shirts. You people are CREATIVE! So many ideas, so little time!
I decided to give it a go for fun. Here are 6 shirts based on all our combined ideas.
The outside four shirts are available in kids’ shirt sizes XS – XL. The centre two are adult sized shirts. There are a few options for colours and shirt styles wherever possible.
- Kids Shirts: $16US (~$21CDN at the time they were launched).
- Kids’ sweatshirts: $30US (~$39CDN).
- Adult shirts: $18US (~$24)
- Women’s fitted vee collar shirts $19US (~$25).
How can you get these?
Go to The Canadian Homeschooler Teespring store and place your order.
These shirts will only be available until August 27th, 2015.
What you need to know:
- Shipping to Canada is $11.50CDN for the first shirt and $5 for each additional shirt.
- Unfortunately, the company doesn’t allow you to order different designs in one order. I’m disappointed to hear that (and have let them know that). You can only order one design per order.
- After the 27th, it will take up to 3 weeks for your shirt to arrive here in Canada.
- Although there might be a goal listed for how many to sell, the shirt company will print them as soon as there are enough sold to break even in cost. Usually, that means 3 shirts. Once 3 have sold, they will go ahead and you will be charged. If less than 3 get ordered, that shirt will not be printed and you will not be charged for it.
- For transparency, I want to share that although Teespring is designed to offer profits to the designer/creator of each shirt, I’ve put the price of each shirt as low as possible to be able to make them as affordable as I can. I know that shipping is expensive so I tried to offset that with a lower cost shirt. Depending on the number of shirts sold, I may make a small amount per shirt. However, it’s not about making money for me – it’s about making these shirts available for anyone would would like some.
If people like these shirts, maybe we can start having a shirt sale for the month. I’d love to hear your ideas about this and what designs you’d like on a shirt.
