How it works
Teespring is the leading social commerce platform for creating and selling custom products online. All products are made on demand, so there are no upfront costs or risk involved. Teespring users turn their ideas into 50+ products instantly in the Teespring Launcher. We also offer TeespringGo, an additional service for users who have custom fulfillment and sourcing needs.
We have a whole host of selling tools integrated right into users’ account dashboard, including tech integrations with sites like YouTube, Twitch and Streamlabs and top brand collaborations with companies like Champion. When you get a sale we’ll produce the product, ship it to the buyer, and send you the profit. We’ll even take care of customer support, returns and refunds so you can spend time doing what you love, while we handle the rest.
Each product sold on Teespring goes through a series of quality assurance checks to ensure the best experience for users and their customers. All product suppliers are asked to comply with an ethical code of conduct that covers health and safety regulations, labor and human rights laws, and ethical business practices. We also prioritize suppliers who offer eco-friendly products or use practices that reduce environmental impact.
Our goal is to empower anyone, anywhere to turn their ideas into products, brands, and businesses. We’re proud to provide a platform that enables people to make a positive impact on the world or their own life. Teespring is committed to a standard of excellence in every aspect of the business—including the ethical and responsible conduct in all operations by respecting the rights of all individuals and the environment. Compliance with health and safety regulations, labor and human rights laws, working towards minimal environmental impact, and ethical business practices are required by all Teespring employees as well as suppliers of services and products.
Our environmental impact
We’ve been working on our eco-friendly agenda since the company's inception in 2011. With the fashion industry dumping over 92 million tons of solid waste into landfills each year, Teespring’s on-demand business model provides a significant solution for reducing waste. Our entire operation revolves around products that are created on demand (i.e. after an order is placed)—enabling us to avoid overproduction, textile waste, and only source supplies as needed. In the rare occurrence we have unusable inventory, usually due to damaged goods or misprints (note Teespring has some of the lowest misprint rates in the industry), our team aims to recycle or donate these items as much as possible.
Apart from our eco-friendly business model, we’ve made other enhancements to reduce our environmental impact over time. We’ve established an entirely paperless operation at our production facility in the U.S. and we’re working to reduce and terminate paper usage with our global partners too. We have eliminated double-packaging across our global fulfillment network, which has reduced plastic output by millions of plastic bags per year! Moving forward, we are committed to on-going research into eco-friendly products and packaging opportunities to further support conscious commerce on our platform.
