Created in 2011, Teespring is a print-on-demand e-commerce website that allows creators to design and sell products. After the designs are published, Teespring prints and ships them to customers as they are purchased, leaving no excess supply. Teespring has a heavy focus on merchandise for influencers on platforms like YouTube and TikTok, featuring official integrations into both platforms. For example, a YouTuber can display a "Merch Shelf" below their videos, allowing their fans to quickly view and purchase their featured products on the website. Creators can also make custom promo codes to discount their products for a limited time.
Teespring products include apparel, like t-shirts and hoodies, phone cases, coffee mugs, and canvases. These products can be browsed on the Teespring homepage, but are more commonly accessed directly through a seller's storefront page. When a product is purchased, the creator gets a percentage of the profit, which they can customize by raising or lowering the product's price.
