The word fundraising often comes tarnished with childhood memories of hype-style salesmen, walk-a-thons, jelly-bean counts and thousands of frozen french bread pizzas. Unfortunately, many traditional methods of fundraisers can be a ton of work with not much to show for it. This gives the whole fundraising world a bad rap (like Vanilla Ice bad). The good news is that there is a much easier and effective way to generate financial support for your school, business or event!
Our team at gulfaltonroad has developed a quick and easy process to use custom apparel for your school or event as a fundraiser.
Here’s how it works…
1.) We pull together some awesome looking designs (free of charge). If you already have the design(s), that’s great! We’ll also create mock-ups of the designs on the selected apparel types. We offer everything from t-shirts to windbreakers to tank tops.
2.) After we’ve got all the designs and mock-ups finalized, we’ll create your personalized digital storefront. This is where you will direct all your potential customers.
3.) We will manage your online shop, facilitate all the transactions and then tally your final orders. We normally recommend leaving the shop open for 2 or 3 weeks.
4.) After the shop has closed, we’ll send everything to print. Once printed, we’ll organize and and ship the apparel to each customer.
5.) We send you a check for the difference (cost of the apparel vs. the marked up amount). The cool thing is that you get to choose how much to charge for each piece of apparel!
We do all this, without any hidden fees or management costs. The more you sell, the more you make. Welcome to the next generation of fundraising!
Sorry, coupon books… it’s time to hit the road.
