I'm an Entrepreneur Now. Buy My Crap!

After seeing this awesome tee and learning I could make my own for free, I figured I'd give it a try. The company is called Teespring and this is how it works, as per their site:

1. Launch a campaign

Use our online designer to create your perfect item. You can upload your own design or work with our library of over 10,000 pieces of clip art and more than 50 fonts.

2. Set a sales goal (tipping point)

Decide the number of shirts you plan on selling. This is the minimum you need to sell for the shirts to be printed.

3. Add a brief title and description to explain your campaign

This is where you can describe the tee, link to your website, or explain your cause.

4. Share and spread the word

Share your campaign page with supporters and collect pre-orders towards your goal. There is no risk for a buyer to pre-order: they will only be charged if the goal is reached.

5. Reach your goal and the shirts get printed

You can continue to sell shirts past your goal until your campaign ends. Once it does, we handle printing & shipping and you get a check for the profit!

I doubt I'll make much from this, but if I don't get enough orders to meet my quota, it's no biggie. The campaign just ends and I don't lose a dime. And of course, my shirt design is most droll. If you're a massage therapist who hates dealing with perverted idiots, or you're looking for a funny gift for a massage therapist friend, check out my campaign.

Capitalism. Yay!
