How can I launch my design on MakeMyMerch?
You will have to create your artwork submit it by filling out this form.
Does it cost anything to put up a design at MakeMyMerch?
No, putting up your design is absolutely free. Because you're crowdfunding your item, you'll never have to pay any upfront costs or take any risk.
What format should my design be in?
How much of the MRP of the T-shirt will I make? How will the MRP of my T-shirts be decided?
MakeMyMerch will calculate a base price for your tee depending on the complexity and number of colours in the design and will share this with you after you submit your design. You can then decide what price you want to sell your T-shirts at. Remember that setting too high a price will make your T-shirts difficult to sell.
Simply put, your profit per tee = MRP (decided by you) – Base price (set my MakeMyMerch)
When will I get paid?
You will get paid once all the T-shirts of your campaign have been printed and shipped out. This will be 10 to 14 days after the end of your campaign. Please note that the campaign has to successful for us to print the tees and pay you the profits.
How many T-shirts do I need to sell for my campaign to be successful? Who decides this minimum Goal?
The minimum goal for a campaign to be successful will depend on the complexity and number of colours in the design. This is usually set at 20 and is decided by the MakeMyMerch team.
In how much time does the goal have to be met for the campaign to be successful?
The goal has to be met in 11 days from the launch of the campaign. If the campaign duration is shorter than 11 days then the goal will have to be met within the campaign duration for it to be successful.
Example: Suppose you launch a month long campaign running from Jan 1st - 31st with a minimum sales goal of 50, you will have to make 50 sales by Jan 11th for the campaign to be successful. People can continue to buy tees till Jan 31st. We will then print and ship out all sales before Feb 14th i.e. 2 weeks after the campaign ends.
What should I set as my campaign duration?
Your campaign duration can be anything between 5 to 21 days. A longer duration will give you more time to sell your design but it also means your customers will have to wait for longer to get the T-shirts. A duration shorter than 11 days will give you less time to reach your minimum goal. If your t-shirts are for an event, remember to have your campaign end 10-14 days before the event to leave time for your shirts to be printed and delivered.
What happens if I don't reach my goal?
If you don't reach your sales goal within 11 days from the start of your campaign, the buyers will not be charged and the item will not be printed.
What happens if I pass my goal?
No problem! You can keep selling t-shirts until the campaign duration ends.
