They’re back.

From now until November 10th, if you would like to get your hands on a #MillennialLifeCrisis shirt, they can be purchased on my Teespring store.

In addition to the original logo design, there are two new designs this year.

The first new design is the Millennial Life Crisis is written in a small chest-plate logo that has been flipped upside down. It is a shirt that reflects a lot of what 2020 has been for me, and I’m sure for a lot of people.

The second new design is Millennial Life Crisis is written in red and orange. I just love the two colours together. I think it looks like sunshine on a shirt.

These shirts are available until November 10th, at which point I will be removing them from the Teespring store.

Teespring fast facts:

  • I do not own these shirts. They are not being shipped from myself and they are not in my possession.
  • Teespring is a print-on-demand business in which you upload your personal artwork to clothing and accessories and they print items as the item is purchased and take control over shipping them to the purchaser
  • Teepsring takes a “flat fee” for the price of the shirt + labour. After that, the direct profit any one person makes is a reflection of how high they price their goods at. This why you will find some people have Teespring shirts that are $20 and some people have them as high as $40 or $45. The people who price their items higher are making more of a profit.
  • With the exception of the full-zip hoodie, all prices are marked for roughly a $5 profit for me, on the store, if someone decides to purchase. The full-zip hoodie had a minimum purchase price I had to abide by.
  • There are slight differences in the price from shirt to shirt that is a reflection of the design artwork. This means for one shirt the profit might be $4.80 while another shirt the profit might be $5.15 or $5.20
  • Teespring takes the order, accepts payment and is in charge of shipping all items. Once an item has be processed, created and shipped out of their warehouse, they will make the profit from the sale available to the creator. This means shipping of all items will be from their warehouse in the USA or the UK.

If you’d like to know what these look like when printed, here’s two shirts with the original logo. All artwork is screen-printed onto the items. They hold up really well after being washed a few dozen times.

If you would like to buy one of these shirts, they can be purchased at the #MillennialLifeCrisis Teespring store. Shirts will be available until November 10th.

If you do purchase a shirt, thank you! Please take a picture of yourself wearing it because I would absolutely love to see it. And, if you cannot purchase a shirt, or do not wish to purchase a shirt, I’m still incredibly grateful that you’re here and have continued reading this blog.

Stay safe, stay healthy and stay sane.

Happy Halloween!

#MillennialLifeCrisis Shirts

A while back I mentioned that last year for my birthday I made #MillennialLifeCrisis shirts on Teespring. When I did that, I actually listed the shirts on my blog so that other people could buy one too if they so desired. A few people actually did make purchase of the shirt for themselves, two people actually showing me pictures of them in the shirt, which was very cool! I felt so proud when I saw someone who wasn’t me wearing the logo. Is that weird?

Anyways, there were two or three people who left comments on that post (it was a post about Teespring and using Teespring to monetize your blog) asking me what the shirts looked like. Since I haven’t yet purchased an iron for this house (it’s on the list, I’ll get one eventually…) please don’t judge me for the wrinkles. But, this is what the #MillennialLifeCrisis shirts look like. I also made/purchased them in crewneck form. I did that on blue though… and it didn’t look so good.

Teespring is a really great platform to create your own designs on different clothing articles. If you’ve ever considered putting your own designs on clothing, whether making it for yourself, or to sell to your WordPress readers, YouTube subscribers or others, I highly recommend checking out Teespring.

Benefits:
– It’s an extremely easy to platform to use. You don’t have to be a design expert to create trendy pieces, or (much like in my case) pieces that just make you happy!
– Quality control is A+. I have NEVER had an issue with an item I have purchased from Teespring.
– As a creator, you’re not required to purchase/carry inventory in hopes someone purchases. All items are made to order, when someone orders. The profit you can make off of a design depends on the price you list the item as.
– As a creator, if you want the item yourself, you purchase it at cost. There is no price increase. The shirt without your logo or design is $15 and the shirt with your logo or design is $15.

Drawbacks:
– Teespring uses American dollars or Euros. The exchange rate is not always kind for Canadians and well… anyone who lives in a country that doesn’t use Euros or American dollars.
